Do you recommend vaseline as night cream ? and what about using it as eye cream ?
I have really expensive products but they seem to be useless in winter !
It is gentle on my sensitive skin
I use it on my lips and as a skin softener on my feet. Slather your feet with Vaseline at night...go to sleep wearing cotton socks. When you wake up, your feet will be so smooth!
For lips get Vaseline lip therapy
No it clogs pores on your eyes no on your face yes
I try to avoid petroleum products. Ever tried shea butter? Other people on this site have had good luck with carrier oils. hope this doesn't offend you
Yes, it's a handy product to have.
I use Vaseline for my lips and eyes. And the Vaseline lip therapy only has one ingredient, petroleum so it's basically just Vaseline in a really small container
I use Vaseline around my nose, mouth, and eyes. I think it works really well if you apply it before bed so that it has all night to sink into your skin.
I use Vaseline on my lips and its quite helpful to prevent chapping.
is it true that Vaseline helps your eyelashes grow and get thicker? iv been applying it on every night before bed for the past week, I hope im not wasting my time.
Yes it does just takes like 4wks of applying
Vaseline does not clog pores. But it is a petroleum product which makes me skeptical about putting it in my face. I know lots of people that do it though and they look great.
It works on your eyelashes and it makes them grow & it makes your lips and soft I use it alote
good job, just 3 more weeks then :). I can see a tiny difference in my eyelashes, it's much easier to apply mascara.
If you put it on your lashes before bed it makes them longer. And I always use it on my lips
on lashes :)
Before you go to bed, rub Vaseline on your eyelid and lash line, it makes your eyelid soft and healthy, as well as your lashes, they become stronger, and after a while they get longer:)
Ehhh I'm skeptical about it as well, with it being a petroleum product. I don't like the texture either, way too greasy for my taste. But if it works for you go for it!! Just not my cup of tea.
Vaseline cannot moisturizer as it is a sealer, yes if applied on moisturizer skin or after a shower it will seal & lock in moisture, as for eye lashes, all it does it buildup on the lashes and give the appearance of thicker lashes, I tried . And it does not clog pores, I'm very acne prone and use it on my entire face at night in winters
Vaseline is non comedogenic. It's an urban legend that it clogs pores. I use it on my lashes and eyebrows to condition and use Vaseline and a cotton bud to exfoliate my lips. Sometimes when my skin gets extremely dry I will use it as a moisturizer.

You can use Vaseline anywhere. People who are skeptical have never tried it, and if it did ruin their skin I'd like to know what it did so I can be warned in advance. It leaves my skin soft, and I'm pale so my under-eyes lack pigmentation, plus they're thin so they get dark and baggy easily. Not so much baggy as dark, but anyway I use my ring finger (its the finger with least muscle control, so your less likely to bruise the skin under your eyes, fun fact of the day) and gently rub vaseline on it. I also rub vaselina over the areas of my face that get dry, and it works immensely well. As long as you exfoliate a bit before it, the minerals and moisture should soak in well, I truthfully don't think it's a 'sealer'. I've used Vaseline my whole life. I honestly highly recommend it if you get dry skin or just want a glowy look when you wake up.
please consider using alba un-petroleum instead. it is, like it says, not petroleum. but it's the same texture/consistency. It's made with castor oil, coconut oil, etc.
Amrita M. totally nailed it.
Try cetiphil ( ok I can't spell it) but its really sensitive but not as goopy
