    Affordable!

    I found this after browsing through makeup alley and after reading so many great reviews I thought, what the hell I'll grab some next time I'm at Watsons or something. I'm so glad I did! It's thick but it sinks in quickly and leaves this protective layer that isn't greasy or annoying but makes your skin SO soft. I'm a hand cream/body lotion junkie and this is one of the best I've ever tried. I get extremely irritated skin on my legs after I shave (I've tried EVERYTHING and nothing stops the bumps that I inevitably scratch until they bleed) and while this doesn't completely heal my legs, it's the best I've tried so far. I was so impressed that I tried it on my face before I went to bed and wow! I have combo skin and I've never found a night cream that doesn't leave my skin oily when I wake up until I tried this! My skin is smooth to the touch and completely moisturized when I wake up. I loved it so much that I tried it during the day and I wasn't disappointed! I barely got oily and it made my mineral makeup look amazing! I would never wear it under liquid foundation though, it would definitely be too heavy. But it's fabulous under mineral makeup, you can't even tell I'm wearing makeup and my skin looks flawless! I will definitely keep buying this!

    No more cracked lips!

    Been struggling with cracked lips and dry patches on my body and I decided to give Vaseline a go. I use a cotton bud to apply a layer of vaseline onto my lips at night before I go to bed and the next day my lips are no longer cracked and there are no signs of dead skin flaking off my lips!! I do not recommend using this on your face cause I have a feeling it might clog your pores because it's a very thick consistency. You can also apply this to your heels if they are prone to dryness or cracking it helps as well!! Heavy duty moisturiser for a VERY affordable price!

    great eyebrow gel!

    sooo many uses for vaseline i don't even know from which aspect should i start from to tackle this review!! 

    well let me just start off with the basic: a moisturiser. it has a nice natural sheen if used as a lipbalm, but it leaves LOADS of sticky eraser-dust residue!! i used to use this every night before bed and i always woke up with... things on my lips. i'd better not describe in full detail. anyway, it's certainly moisturising but it's annoying having to clear up my lips every morning before facing the world!!! as a moisturiser for dry skin, it's very slow absorbing and leaves a greasy feeling for far too long. maybe ideal if you put them on your feet and wear socks after, but i'm not a fan of that incarcerating sleeping-with-socks feeling. does leave your feet feeling super soft and supple the next morning though! however, being a girl (thought this was worth mentioning since i get that guys are into skincare too, which is rather endearing imo) i do like my moisturisers to be scented cus everything feels a lot funner that way. i sometimes use lotion as a form of perfume too so it's great to kill 2 birds with one stone! sad to say vaseline only hits one.

    for eyelash growth: DON'T TRUST EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE INTERNET LOL. this is waaaay too heavy for delicate eyelash use and you'll wake up the next morning feeling like your eyes weigh a tonne. i did use a very light hand to apply these on my lashes but it's still way too heavy and makes you fee awfully tired the next morning. 

    as an eyebrow wax: great! i like how it does the same job as some other high-end eyebrow gels i own for less than a fraction of the cost!! lasts really long too!

    the only downside is the shape of the tub. if it was shorter and wider like the nivea creme, that would probably be more ideal. when it goes down to a certain level, it gets pretty tricky to dig out and you'll get lots of scraps beneath your fingernails. not cool! 

    tl;dr: since my only use it as an eyebrow gel and nothing more, i don't feel it's worth continuing to purchase this since i have other lipbalms that also function as a pretty decent eyebrow gel.

    A house without Vaseline is a house that is going to creak (get the pun?😂😉)

    Vaseline is the must have product for every house.... Why? Well, it is on the spectrum of fixing cracked lips to fighting feet fungi. I have had a friend who fixed his feet fungi by applying Vaseline on the affected area every night and then wearing socks after that! 


    Vaseline has always been my go-to product as I have extremely cracked lips most of the time. It smells a little odd but the benefits ripped from it is ten time fold that disadvantage.... And you're not going to be disturbed by the smell when you're sleeping so.....
