50 Ways to Use Vaseline in Under 2 Minutes

I found this video on YouTube and I agree with them 100%! Vaseline is an inexpensive product that most people will have in their normal household items, but people may not necessarily be using it as a beauty product.

I love Vaseline products. The one I normally use is the Vaseline lotion one with aloe vera. Even though many people say that it clogs pores (which is a myth), I often use it on my face (especially after showers) to help keep the moisture in. Especially during the winter, Vaseline is the only thing that keeps me moisturized after my showers.

Recently I saw this video for 50 ways to use Vaseline in under 2 minutes! So I thought I would share and transcribe it into a blog post for those who are interested but cannot fully pay attention to a video at the moment (e.g. in class like I am right now as I am typing this).

  2. Put a coat of Vaseline on your feet at night, cover them with socks and wake up to softer feet - every day!
