Here are 10 uses for Vaseline and how it can save you money on expensive cosmetics and treatments:
Vaseline is one of the most common household products purchased each day. The reason for this is its many uses. While it is most often associated with curing chapped lips, it has many other great benefits.
Beauty products can be very expensive, especially when you take into consideration everything a woman does to perfect her look each day. Vaseline enables you to cut out much of this expense while providing a practical alternative to these products.
Use #1: Vaseline can be used on the split ends of hair to give it a healthier look.
This is a great alternative to try until you can get to the salon for a trim.
Use #2: Before a brow wax, you can spread Vaseline on your eyelashes to prevent wax from building up
Keeping the wax away from your eyes is a good idea to prevent infection and this will help you do just that.
Use #3: During winter, spread Vaseline on exposed skin for protection and warmth
You may already use it on your lips, so why not on other parts of your body as well? This pre-empts use #4.
Use #4: Spread Vaseline on chapped lips
Buff with a wash cloth or toothbrush to get rid of the dry skin.
Use #5: Vaseline makes a great shoe polish for patent leather shoes
You’ve most likely paid enough for the shoes so saving money on polish for them will definitely help your finances.
Use #6: Mix a bit of Vaseline with broken or cracked eye shadow to form a cream
Cream shadow is a very popular option. This will also help extend the life of your makeup.
Use #7: Spread a thin layer of Vaseline on your hair line before colouring your hair
This will prevent the dye from staining your scalp.
Use #8: Vaseline can also be used to tame unruly eyebrows between waxes
The same is true if you get your eyebrows threaded instead.
Use #9: Mix Vaseline with a pinch of your favourite flavoured Jelly
This gives you a custom lip gloss that will not only taste great, but will also have coloor. Your new lip gloss will also provide health benefits to your lips and is a completely safe option.
Use #10: Spread Vaseline over cuticles and nails between manicures to preserve the manicure
This also helps cuticles to remain healthy.
