Quick Fix

It makes your eyelashes grow: Lather Vaseline all over your eyelashes overnight and watch them thicken, even without a prescription! To Soften dry and cracked elbows. Dry cuticles: Store a mini-Vaseline container in your purse and utilize for emergency dry cuticle moments. It is a misconception that Vaseline clogs pores, so smear it all over your face, neck and arms for softer skin. It eases eyebrow plucking: Tame your eyebrows and lube up the under-skin so you can pluck with ease. To make your accessories look brand spankin’ new: New job interview? Scuff the crap-ol-la out of your patent leather heals thanks to pitcher night? Put a small dab on your shoes and shine away! It’s your new exfoliating body wash: Mix with sea salt and come out of the shower feeling soft. And sexy. Can be used to smooth and soothe skin after shaving. Bonus – For Halloween – Once you carve your Halloween pumpkin, rub Vaseline on the exposed edges. it keeps it from rotting or going dry.

Alright, I’m a little skeptic about this…. I do think that vaseline is an amazing (old school) fix for dry skin in general. I also think it’s good to remove makeup, so it has it’s benefits. But I would not recommend ‘smearing it all over your face’. Sometimes I mix half vaseline & half face lotion in the winter when my skin is dry, but only at night once in a while. I also like using olive oil on my cuticles, it’s always nice for a quick little home manicure. What are some of your easy, cheap, remedies?

  1. Wow! I had no idea Vaseline was so useful! I use it to soften my feet after a pedicure and I use it as a moisturizer for my hair but now I will be adding to my beauty regimen :) Thanks for the tips.
