18 Amazing Uses of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

My mom used to use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on my hands and legs when I was a kid. Due to its slippery and greasy texture, I started using body lotions and almost forgot about this petroleum jelly. Recently my dermatologist told me to use it on my body in winters as the medicines would absorb all the oil and make my skin all the more dry and sore in winters. I was like are you crazy how I would apply such greasy things on my body. My derma simply ignored my expressions and told my parents to hide all her body lotions and give her this petroleum jelly to apply. After using it for many months I got to know how amazing it is and how it can be used in various ways. Guys it has tonnes of uses. Today I am going to share with you the amazing uses of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.

Uses of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly:

1. As a body lotion
My main aim of buying this petroleum jelly is to use it as a body lotion. After showering I apply it on slightly damp skin and it makes my skin very soft, smooth and moisturized. It keeps the drier and rough parts – elbows, knees and heels soft and moisturized. Never had I felt my skin so soft and hydrated in winters after using it. It does make skin greasy but gets absorbed after few minutes.

2. As an eye makeup remover
Tired of removing stubborn mascara? Apply a little petroleum jelly on the lashes and gently wipe it off. It removes water proof mascara and eye liner easily and effectively.

3. Tame unruly eyebrows
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly tames the wayward eyebrows. Apply it on eye brows before going to bed and it will mould them into place. Make sure you use only little amount of petroleum jelly as it is way too greasy.

4. Easy to pluck eyebrows
I apply little amount of jelly before plucking the eyebrows using tweezers. It makes the whole process easy and less painful. It does not irritate the eye area and is quite gentle on the skin.

5. Lip exfoliant
Apply Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on your lips and wait for about 10 minutes. Take an old brush or a soft paper towel and wipe the dead skin off gently. It will exfoliate the lips and makes it soft and smooth.

6. For long eye lashes
Apply some petroleum jelly on lash comb and brush it evenly throughout your lashes. Apply your mascara and you will get lengthy lashes. My cousin tried it and it did make her lashes look long and glossy. Make sure you do not rub your eyes or you will get panda eyes! It is also said that Vaseline Petroleum Jelly makes the eye lashes grow longer. 

7. Softens the cuticles
Apply a small amount of petroleum jelly onto the cuticles before hitting the bed. It softens and moisturizes the cuticles. 

8. Softens dry and rough heels
Apply generous amount of petroleum jelly on your heels before hitting the bed and put on a pair of cotton socks. It helps you achieve soft and beautiful heels.

9. As a lip balm
It acts as a great lip balm and makes your lips soft and moisturized but I hate using it due to its weird taste.

10. Lip gloss maker
Mix some petroleum jelly with loose eye shadow powder to make your own lip gloss. 

11. After shaving
I use a little amount of jelly after shaving the skin. It keeps the skin soft and moisturized.

12. Make your own lip scrub
Mix Vaseline Petroleum jelly and sugar and exfoliate your lips. It makes the lips very soft, smooth and moisturized.

13. As a highlighter
Apply it on cheekbones, brow bones and upper lips to get that natural dewy look on your face. Make sure to use it minimally to avoid looking like a greasy ball.

14. Fragrance Extender
Apply a small amount of Petroleum Jelly on the skin before spraying perfume on. It will makes the scent last longer without being overwhelming.

15. Prevents nail paints for running on the cuticles
Apply a small amount of petroleum jelly on the sides of the nails, apply your nail paint and then wipe it off. It prevents the nail polish from running or drying onto the skin.

16. Prevents nail polish bottles from getting stuck
Apply a small amount of Vaseline onto the neck of the bottle and it will open easily and won’t get stuck.

17. Remove minor stains
Vaseline Petroleum jelly can be used to remove minor makeup stains by applying a little amount and scrubbing it.

18. Soothes the cuts
Whenever I cut myself in the kitchen whilst cooking, I apply this petroleum jelly on the area and it instantly soothes and reduces the pain.
