Why I Always Keep Vaseline Nearby | Dolled Up Daily

A year or two ago, I would've thought it was weird if someone said they always keep Vaseline nearby, but I picked up some to help sooth and moisturize my burnt nose in the summer, and now I realized how versatile and great it was.



So I thought I'd share a bunch of ways you can use it!

1. On chapped lips as a chapstick or as a lip gloss to add shine

2. Put on lips, leave for 2 minutes, scrub off with toothbrush and have the softest lips you've ever had!

3. On eyelashes to lengthen & thicken

4. Use as a moisturizer (It doesn't clog pores)

5. Put thin layer on teeth and lipstick wont get on them (I wouldn't do this unless you're going to be taking a lot of pictures)

6. As an aftershave balm

7. Soften your cuticles before a manicure

8. A highlighter on your cheeks.

9. Shine up an old mani by putting a thin layer over nails

10. Can use as a primer for makeup

11. Reduce look of fine lines under eyes

12. Use it to remove makeup stains from clothes

13. Mix with lipstick to create a long lasting blush

14. Use as an eyebrow gel to keep eyebrows in line

15. Apply to tips of your hair to help prevent split ends

16. Put on the neck of nail polish bottles to make sure they don't get stuck shut

17. Put a coat on feet at night, put socks over, and wake up with super smooth feet

18. Shine up shoes and bags

19. Mix with sea salt to make a scrub

20. As a massage balm

And many more! The best thing is it's super affordable! I picked up a 99 cent case in the summer and use it for so many things and it's still half full!

    1. Haha I forgot my moisturizer one day when I was traveling and my face was so dry, so I used it! And I don't use it everyday, but if my skin is really dry I put it on spots that need it. Don't worry, It wont cause breakouts either, cause it doesn't clog pores! (I have awful skin I checked before I just put it on lol) xo
