Great multi purpose product
Vaseline is a great product for many things such as chaffing, nappy rash and especially sore and cracked lips. Vaseline has a sort of sticky to jelly texture which is gat when rubbed into skin. It is perfect when your lips need an intensive balm. The home brand Petroleum jelly is just as good as Vaseline. Definetly recommend!

A versatile bathroom staple
I always have a tub of this in my bathroom.
It's an essential when doing a home hair colour to protect from colour transfer onto my skin. Nothing else comes close to what vaseline can do for hair dye protection.
My son uses it to help his psorasis conditiion, as a base for a treatment product - and it doesn't irritate his skin in any way.
Another family member has been using it as his lip balm for 30+ years - I've never known him to use a different product.
Every home needs one of these in it!

You can't get better than Vaseline! It's one of those multi-purpose products that everyone should own.
First and foremost, this is a great lip treatment for dry and cracked lips. In winter this is my go-to product for dry lips. When I have a cold/flu, Vaseline is great for a sore nose (from too many nose blows!). I apply a little around my nostrils to help keep them lubricated as they get so dry and sore!
I keep a pot next to my bed and put some on my lips so they're not so dry the next morning.
Another great use for this jelly is to moisturise my cuticles. I paint my nails very often so my cuticles need a treatment here and there. Vaseline is great for rubbing into my cuticles so they don't crack and look so dry!

Great , have been using it for years now
I have used this product for so long, and have repurchased it countless times. This is a product that i went to major lengths searching for in an overseas foreign supermarket as I had forgotten to pack it on a holiday. Works fantastically in winter for dry skin, chapped lips, and never lets me down. Its a household staple, and something i will continue to buy. Love!

Vaseline is pretty self explanatory, it's an Aussie staple in the house. It's a thick oily onitment that has so, so many purposes! Beauty wise it's fantastic for protecting your skin from hair dye, nourishing cracked lips, a deep treatment for feet overnight in cotton socks, etc etc. The list goes on. I would always have a tub of this in the home, it doesn't go off and lasts forever!

Great for Everything.
Vaseline, or Vaso, as we Aussies love to call it has been made for more than 140 years and for good reason. This versatile product can be anything and do anything from nails to lips to eyes and cheeks.
First off, it is fragrance free and is opaque in the container and transparent when applied. When applying it, it does leave a sheen/shine.
As you may have all heard, Vaseline can be used. I'll address what I use it for.
Vaseline is used for moisturization purposes and intense moisturization at that. For example, just a pint of Vaseline can get your lips that beautiful shine as well as moisturising them for the whole day. The same applies to hands and feet, although I would recommend not to apply too much as it does accumulate and get sticky and uncomfortable. For cracked heels or hard skin on your feet, Vaseline can be applied on the areas that you want before you go to bed and (optional, put on socks to keep them warm and soft) the next morning, there will be a dramatic difference.
For nails, you can use this to keep your cuticles healthy and strong by applying the Vaseline to the base of your nails. Also, when applying nail polish, it's always a pain to have to wash off the sides when you go over your nail onto skin but with Vaseline, you just put some on your skin next to your nail and any nail polish that falls onto it just falls off when you wash your hands or just scrub it off.
When you spray your perfume, applying Vaseline on the area that you are going to spray on top of will make the fragrance last longer and last all day. Although, don't apply too much vaseline as it does have sticky residues and only a small amount is needed.
This is also rumored to be true, although I don't know. I have started putting on some Vaseline onto my lashes, lash line and eyelids as it is said that it spurs eyelash growth and results in longer, thicker and healthier eyelashes. I've been doing this so far for about a week and have noticed that my eyelashes are more healthy - less fallout and they are less flimsy but they are by no means thicker or longer but I will keep trying.
Vaseline is just a miracle.

I ALWAYS have a little tub of Vaseline in my bag because its just so versatile! You can basically use it for everything and its so afforable too!
I ususally use it for dry skin, or wherever i have some irritation. For stubborn mascara that wont come off with my gentle eye makeup remover, i use some vasaline on a cotton pad and wipe it over and it does the trick!
