One Product, Many Uses

There are so many products that are almost vintage in nature, considering the number of years people have been using them blindly. These differ from country to country, but one product that is global in nature is the good old Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. And no, I am not being paid to write this article. šŸ˜‰ Itā€™s just that I have been using this product ever since I was a child and my mom introduced me to it. Over the years, I have learnt so many different ways you could use the product – & not only to soothe dry skin or chapped lips.

  1. For Women @ Work
    • Trick – Perfume StickerĀ spray-perfume
    • Rub some Vaseline on your pulse points before you spray perfume. It holds the scent much longer & ensures you stay fresh all day long.
  2. For the Lazy Makeup Lover
    • Trick ā€“ Makeup Stain Remover
    • With a damp washcloth, use Vaseline to easily lift makeup stains (that were a result of not washing face the night before) from clothes as well as pillows, Blankets, etc.
  3. For the Messy Nail-Polisher
    • Trick – Mess Free Manicureapplying-nail-polish

  4. For Cream-Base Product Lovers

    • Turn your favourite loose pigments into cream eye shadow or blush by mixing them with Vaseline. You can also make a tinted lip balm this way.

    • Apply Vaseline generously on your lips & rub a cotton bud to exfoliate & hydrate dry lips.
  7. ForĀ One & All
