You’ve got to love Vaseline! And if you don’t here are 21 reasons why you should.
Vaseline is also known as petroleum jelly, although it took me a while to realize Vaseline can be used for more than just your face.
1. Long-Lasting Perfume
Taking a little bit of Vaseline and applying it to the skin before you apply your perfume will help the scent last much longer compared to applying it without.
2. Control Them Brows
Put some Vaseline on your fingertips and run it along your brow or any spot that has uncontrolled hair. It will tame them instantly.
3. Chapped Lips
Vaseline is one of the best moisturizers and really does act as a great lip balm. Buy a little to carry around in your bag for those times where your lips gets chapped
4. Long, Full Lashes
Take an old mascara brush, wash it clean and cover it in Vaseline. Make sure you have no make-up on and apply it to your lashes just as you would with mascara. Do this on the days where you plan to just be lazy at home or lay in bed. Your lashes will grow amazingly.
5. Emergency Make-up
Just used the last of your eye-shadow, lipstick, or blush? Don’t worry, just take some food-coloring or an old lipstick shade and in a container mix some in with vaseline. Add more depending on how dramatic you want the color. Then just apply it to the desired area.
6. Bye Bye Stubborn Make-up
Vaseline can remove even some of the most stubborn make-up! Just rub the area until it comes off then wash it off your#face.
7. Protects and Repairs Skin
Apply some Vaseline to the skin it helps to soothe and relieve pain.
8. Stuck Ring
Rub vaseline on the finger which your ring is stuck and it will help ease the ring off.
9. Split Ends
To hide them take a small amount of vaseline and apply to the ends of your hair.
10. Make-up Stains
Got some lipstick on your new white top? Don’t worry! Rub some vaseline on the area and it should come out in a jiffy.
11. Eyelash Glue
Eyelash glue can be difficult to get off especially after being set the whole day. Take some vaseline and rub along the lash line for easy removal.
12. Hair Dye Stains
Most women dye their hair from time to time. The colour may look great but what you don’t want is the dye dying your forehead or around your hairline. Apply vaseline before you begin so your hair looks great and your skin stays free of dye!
13. Inserting Earrings
To those that still find it painful or are changing their earrings for the first time, vaseline helps to make earring insertion easy and pain-free! This goes for any piercings, not just ears!
14. Gum Stuck in Your hair?
Rub vaseline in the area where the gum is stuck and it’ll slide right off. Do this right after the gum has gotten stuck and be patient with the process.
