Rediscovered: Vaseline Petroleum Jelly


You know those products that are probably sitting around your house–or maybe your parents’ house–without you giving any thought to them in years? Well, maybe it’s time to take a second look, especially when it comes to Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.

I recently picked up a tube of this that was laying around my mom’s house, and I have to say, I was totally amazed at how many beauty-related things it could do. The two that really spoke to me, though, are these:

1) It works as a fantastic lip balm! It softens and smooths even the most chapped lips instantly.

2) It moisturizes dry knees and elbows! Mine tend to be super ashy and scaly, but with a couple days of rubbing Vaseline on them? Like a baby’s bottom.

And the best part? It’s under $5! What could be better?
