When harsh winter weather leaves your lips dry and chapped, what do you apply? Vaseline. Cracked heels? Apply Vaseline. Is your nose bearing the brunt of flu? A lick of Vaseline does the trick. I think you get the idea. Vaseline has multiple uses and no household can go without a tub or two of this ‘Wonder Jelly’. But, did you know that this family favouite brand has been around for a whopping 140 years? Keep an eye on the blog this week. I’ll be sharing a video featuring my ultimate Vaseline ‘beauty hacks’. In the meantime comment below and share your best use(s) for Vaseline. What’s in it for you? You could WIN a Vaseline hamper.
As women, we religiously look after our facial skin and moisturise daily, but can the same be said for the skin on our bodies? I for one can admit to the fact that I don’t put as much effort into my body as I do my face. Oops! Winter weather isn’t kind and the dry air sucks moisture out of our skin, leaving it dry and worst of all, scaly. No, thank you. If the original Vaseline Petroleum Jelly doesn’t do it for you then perhaps you should try one of their other Vaseline variants.
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in Aloe Fresh
The name says it all. This variation of Vaseline petroleum jelly has a fresh, subtle aloe scent and is best suited for dry, itchy and cracked skin. The formulation is light and fast-absorbing and leaves your skin feeling soft and hydrated. It’s important for me to mention that all the Vaseline jellies are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. Aloe is known to effectively soothe sunburnt skins and treat wounds as well as minor skin infections.
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in Cocoa Butter
If you’re looking to restore severely dry, dull skin reach for the cocoa butter variant. Not only does it keep your skin moisturised but it also has the yummiest chocolatey scent. What’s not to love? The cocoa butter Vaseline is perfect for dry heels, elbows and hands. It’s rich and nourishing and the ideal winter companion. Cocoa butter is packed full of antioxidants, which helps combat free radicals and in turns saves your skin from environmental stressors.
Prices – R8,75 (50ml), R14,35 (100ml), R29,95 (250ml) and R35,95 (450ml)
