Review of "Vaseline Petroleum Jelly"
Vaseline is the cheapest, most undervalued cosmetic that I know. Most people have used at one time or another but, once we're past puberty, it is usually relegated to use as a lip balm (unless you're into using it as lubricant... it rots condoms - enough said!). It does, in fact have hundreds of uses, some of which I've listed below:1. Moisturiser - Best watered down a little if you're in a hurry (preventing the oil slick look), this is one of the best face and body moisturisers there are. It protects the skin and keeps in existing moisture. It's also an excellent hand and foot cream - apply liberally to clean skin, cover with socks or gloves and leave for between 1/2 hr and overnight. Your hands and socks will be 'Fairy-soft'!
2. Make-up remover - Forget all those two-in-one and three-in-one products that you pay a fortune for - this was the original. Put a bit of vaseline on your face and it'll take off evn the most stubborn waterproof mascara without irritating your skin.3. Lash Conditioner - Apply a small amount to your eyelashes before going to bed. Many models swear by this for thicker, glossier eyelashes.
4. Lip Balm - Always great on raw, chapped lips. Unperfumed and not too greasy. None of the sickly flavours that stop my man snogging me!5. Anti-blister treatment - Long distance runners often coat their feet with Vaseline before running to protect against blisters. I do it before a session in the gym and it works!
6. Hair Deep Conditioner - This is a bit messy but does work - coat your hair with Vaseline and rub in. Cover with a towel (or put a towel on your pillow) and leave overnight. Wash as normal in the morning. It is also great with a few drops of your favourite essential oil added.7. Emergency Hair Gel - Economy is the buzzword here - use too much and you'll look like an environmental diater area. A tiny smear of Vaseline will keep your hair in place all day and leave it in better condition than a gel or wax would.
8. Eyebrow tamer - Slick your eywbrows into place with a touch of Vaseline on an eyebrow comb. Slightly darkens and defines eyebrows for a groomed look.It can also be used to protect and moisturise minor burns, polish shoes, cover up scratches in coloured glass (v. small amount!) and grease the soles of shoes when used in jolly japes!
I give it you - Vaseline!
