They say “best things come in small packages ” , How absolutely right !!!
Looking at this tiny cute tub of Vaseline ,I cudn’t agree more. This little one has been my handbag companion for more than 4 years now and has helped me on any bad hair /makeup/skin day .For a price of INR 5/- only ( this particular one ) it is a must have, all in one handy product especially, when one can’t afford Elizabeth Arden 8 hour beauty cream on daily basis ( My other favorite).
While most of us know Vaseline as lubricant:petroleum jelly that helps us with dry skin and chapped lips ,here are some more benefits that have been tried ,tested and mentioned by many others around .
Lets start :
This particular one was mentioned at Tyra Bank show few years ago : Rub a generous amount of Vaseline on your chapped lips and dry brush your lips with a soft tooth brush.Wipe it afterwards with a soft cloth and puckerup to sexy ,exfoliated and soft plump lips .
Want to convert your favorite shade of matte lipstick to little bit of shine??? Dab a tiny bit of Vaseline on top after you are done with your matte lipstick for right amount of sheen on your lips.
Have a patch of dry skin on elbows,arms ,legs : a bit of Vaseline and they’ll disappear instantly.
How about a bit of Vaseline on your fingers around your nails to smooth out your cuticles and making your fingers look so fine .
Apply Vaseline on your hairline/face rim before applying Henna or color ,apparently they help in color not getting onto your forehead.
I have used Vaseline as an emergency highlighter to highlight my cheek bones many a time for dewy effect ;-).
This one I swear by ,there are days when I had no makeup remover and Vaseline doubled up as one and a really good one .
Vaseline can be used to tame unruly eyebrows too.
Don’t want to use Mascara but want your eyelashes to standout sharp,Dip a Mascara brush in Vaseline and dry brush them .Your lashes will look lovely without the black .
Want your shoes/Handbags to shine a little bit,rub Vaseline on them and they will glisten.
That’s all I have for now but if you have any more to add on ,feel free.
Remember petroleum jelly is meant for chapped lips/ skin and only doubles up as emergency product for face when in need.For long term usage you always have specific creams/ face lotions that do the only particular job they are supposed too .
