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!

My little secret
Great for my dry lips. Helps me get through the winter months. Can also be used for many other things, a convenient thingy to have lying around and cheap too.

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!

Its petroleum jelly, and its upfront and honest
I have to admit that I am not a fan of petroleum based products, but Vaseline gets my tick of approval because it has its main ingredient in its name, so its honest and straight forward. This is a multi use product. Its fine for softening lips- if you dont mind using petroleum jelly on your lips. I also use this to soften rough elbows and use it in winter time on my face to soften it.

My main use for Vaseline is for my lips. This stuff is AMAZING on my chapped lips. I have the driest lips, especially throughout the winter and Vaseline has gotten me through it for as long as I can remember.
I wear this every night before I go to bed - and it really moisturizes my lips, and it also helps to prevent further cracking.
This is a super affordable product and it's one that I have never been without in my house... the small 50g tub lasts way over a year (even with daily use)!

Vaseline petroleum jelly - a classic household staple! Been using this when I was a kid. I have used this on chapped lips, winter dry/itchy skin and it works very well. As other reviewers have pointed, this is a bit too greasy to be used on your face. But anywhere from the neck down it's great!
I've seen videos where you can make DIY lip balm using Vaseline jelly and old lipstick leftover. Vaseline is truly a versatile skincare and beauty product

My sister was born with extremely cracked skin - it was so bad that her feet would bleed - this is the only thing that used to soothe her feet and help seal them. It was extremely painful for her as she couldn't even walk on them. This really made a difference after 3 days she would have a dramatic improvement and be moving around slowly. I have seen it in action and in our house it is extremely trusted
