"VASELINE LIP THERAPY"

For some reason, everybody sniggers when you mention vaseline!! It is a wonderful skin care treatment and the Lip Therapy product is fantastic.

HISTORY
+++++++

Vaseline is petroleum jelly. Petroleum Jelly was first discovered in 1859 in America, apparantly it caused problems for the oil riggers as it caused the rigs to cease up, but they loved using it on their hands!!

A chemist named Cheesebourogh discovered the healing properties of Petroleum Jelly and opened a factory in 1870 to make Vaseline. Apparantly he ate a teaspoonful of it every day. Yuck!!

According to some sources, the word Vasline comes from two words, the German word for water, Wasser and the Greek word for oil, elain.

Apparantly vasline works because it coats the skin with a layer of grease so it stops bacteria from getting in.

THIS PRODUCT
+++++++++++++

Vaseline Lip Therapy is widely available from chemists for 99p.

It comes in a small round 20g tin, which is a handy size to keep in a bag or a pocket. Be warned though, if you keep it in your pocket all night when you are sitting down, it will melt!!! Mine is now all in the lid, rather than the tin itself!!

The tin is green to show that it has Aloe Vera in it, and to distinguish it from the normal blue vaseline, which is in the same size tin, also for 99p.

The Aloe Vera Lip Therapy has a citrusy smell and taste to it.

Aloe Vera is also well know for its healing properties.

HOW TO USE and RESULTS
++++++++++++++++++++++++

Unscrew the tin. Stick finger in, gently, remove a tiny bit of Vaseline and then smear it over your lips. You really only do need a tiny bit.

If you do this before you go out into the cold then it should stop your lips from cracking.

If you use it before you go to sleep at night on sore lips, then they will be better by the morning. (One tip though, kiss the husband before putting the vaseline on if you want to avoid a slippery kiss situation!).

MY PERSONAL OPINION
++++++++++++++++++++

I swear by this product and dont leave home without it. I have several tins, so that I have one in the car, one by my bed and one in my handbag. At 99p each its affordable. It also lasts for a long, long time, so is very cost effective.

Since using Vaseline I do not suffer with cold sores, as my lips never crack, or if they do, they heal overnight with use of the cream.

I recommend this to women and men who have dry cracked lips. It is a fantastic cheap, easy to use product.

Compared to Chapstick type lipbalms, it does a much better job.
