The Benefits Of...

VASELINE!
(Does anyone else wish it was sold all blingy like this?!)
 
I am discovering some AWESOME benefits of Vaseline. Growing up, this was always something that was kept stocked up at my house as well as my grandma's house.
...Now I know why....!!
 
Here are some of the MAIN reasons I am lovin' Vaseline!
 
1. You can mix it with your typical powder blush to make cream blush. I prefer cream blush because it looks fresh & dewy- plus I feel like it lasts a lot longer!
 
2. Hides split ends- Don't have time to get a trim? Rub a small amount of Vaseline on the ends of your hair to hide your split ends!
 
3. Just barely dab the end of a q-tip into the Vaseline and use it to remove makeup mess ups!
 
4. Mix a little bit of Vaseline with your favorite kool-aid flavor for some DIY lip gloss!
 
5. Rub a small amount of Vaseline around your cuticles before you paint your nails for a flawless mani!
 
6. Mix Vaseline with sea salt for an awesome exfoliator
(..with summer coming up this is GREAT to use before you get a spray tan!)
 
7. (MY FAVORITE USE..)
Make your perfume last longgerrrr!
Rub Vaseline on your perfume points and spray on your favorite perfume. The scent will last all day long!
 
 
What are some of your favorite beauty remedies using Vaseline?

  9. OK so I just started using petroleum jelly (gross name) a few weeks ago. I have super dry skin. I put it on my dry patches of my face at night (including my frown line) and its gone in the morning, plus my I've tried it on the frown line in between my brows and for a few hours in the morning it is almost gone!
