Here’s why Vaseline is a must have in your beauty box! Your body will thank you for it.

Vaseline – this multi-purpose product can be used from your head to toe, from skincare to makeup aid.

Vaseline, or petroleum jelly is has been around for years due to its multi-tasking formula. Check out are favourite uses for this iconic product:

1 Long & Lush Lashes

Long LashesNeed a boost to achieve longer, shiny lashes? Apply Vaseline and it works just like mascara (minus the colour coat). This creamy product can be applied to your lashes and be left overnight as it helps your lashes grow longer and thicker. What’s more, it even helps remove eyelash glue for when you’re out of makeup remover!

2 Stray Hair No More

Cheap Eye Brow GelIf you’re not keen on investing in an eyebrow gel, get Vaseline. Its jelly-like texture holds down stray hairs, giving your eyebrows a cleaner and shaper look. If you’ve got flyaways or baby hair (especially at your fringe area), apply some to smooth them down. Be careful not to overdo it, as it can make your hair look like a greasy mess.

3 Budget-Friendly Moisturiser

Alternative Face MoisturizerNot only does it work wonders by keeping your lips moist, it also works on the face! However, don’t use it too much or too often as it might clog the pores of certain skin types. Vaseline is perfect for when you are on the go or in need of a quick solution during a long flight or cold weather.

4 Split End Saver

Prevent Split EndsA quick fix for split ends or damaged hair is to smooth out Vaseline on your hair ends. It’ll make it look more healthy while nourishing it. Use it like a hair mask and make sure to wash it thoroughly after as you don’t want to end up with sticky hair.

5 Cracks No More

Moisturizer For Cracked HeelsSoothe the cracked heels on your feet with Vaseline. Rub it into your feet and sock them before heading to bed. This allows the Vaseline to work its magic overnight, leaving you with softer, smoother heels in the morning!

6 Highlighter

Makeup HighlighterGive your highlighter a skip in favour of Vaseline. Just dab a small amount on the areas of your face where the light hits. This gives your look a natural, dewy glow.
