    If you have very dry skin or even lips, applying vaseline either overnight or during the day works wonders. It is a great product and one of the best moisturizers out there. It is affordable and works better than your average moisturizer in the battle with dry skin!

    i tried this product on my 4 children because their skin was very dry due to the weather for the most part it worked fairly well but didn't live up to my expectations because it helped make their skin soft but i had to reapply it quite often to help relieve their dry skin and ended up having to take them to a dermetologist to help correct the problem

    Petroleum comes from the same source as mineral oil- and the stuff you put in your CAR…GAS. It’s completely incompatible with the skin and doesn’t fix anything…If you don’t moisturize HEAVILY first your not treating just masking the dryness issue…it CANT penetrate the skin AT ALL just sits on top…nothing gets in and nothing gets out…I wouldn’t recommend using it regularly because it WILL clog pores stunt hair growth cause breakouts etc.

    it does have its uses though:

    It’s also great for sparring Muai Thai so that when I get hit in the face the glove will slide off…lol

    Protect a fresh manicure or pedicure by applying petroleum jelly to coat nails before you enter water then when you get out: try putting rich water based lotion on soaking wet freshly exfoliated hands and feet…follow up with olive oil then a thin coat of petroleum jelly and cotton socks....

    Add a water like shine to my lips for special effects (always over a REAL moisturizing lip balm) petrolium products can be great to add depth it you put a smidge on your lids and the top of your cheek bones…(wash it off as soon as you can though)

    This is the best thing for chapped lips! For the past two weeks, I had the worst lips due to the cold weather. I mean - really really bad lips. I tried from blistex to the all organic lip balm and I still wasn't able to heal the lips! I finally decided to buy a small tub of vaseline. WIthin one day, I was almost completely chapped-free! The jelly base slowly chipped away the dry skin around my lips. I was able to get most of it off by the end of the day and had my lips all plumped up the next day. I am in debt to this product! Its cheap and works amazingly well :)

    Really great for dry skin and very affordable. Thought it does tend to have a wierd smell. It is very handy because it comes in different shapes and sizes!!!

    Vaseline has got to be the most versatile product known to woman! I love it on my lips! If your lips are dry, I would recomend that you don't use it alone, but put it on top of a moisturizing lip balm to lock in moisture. This works REALLY well! Now, though that is a great use, here is my fave way to use Vaseline: as a foot treatment. Thats right. Every night, before you go to bed, rub your feet in Vaseline, and PUT ON SOME SOCKS (careful not to slip on you greasy feet!) this is important, but don't ask me why. I got this out of a beauty book, and I trust it. When you wake up in the morning, your feet will be baby soft and smooth. Careful not to use too much, or they might stay greasy through the night, but I still say you should give it a try!

    I absolutely love Vaseline. One little 50g tub of Vaseline can do just about anything. It only cost around 1 to 2 dollars and you can get it anywhere. You can use it for burns, cuts, dry skin, as a make up remover etc. You can put it over your lipstick to make your lips look glossier. When you try on rings at a store and it gets stuck to your finger, put Vaseline on and it slips right off. (This really happened to my friend, but luckily I hand my handy dandy Vaseline, haha).

    Also, if anyone has a nosebleed problem Vaseline can help! When you have a nose bleed get either tissue or gauze, roll it up so it can fit into your nose then put Vaseline on it. Putting Vaseline on helps clot the blood. If you just use tissue it will take longer for the blood to clot.

    I try to avoid petroleum products whenever possible, whether it's at the fuel pump or involving my face (!) since I do not like how it has effected our economy and our world. Did you know petroleum jelly was discovered as a substance that accumulated on oil rig equipment, gunking it up? (That's what wikipedia sez)

    That being said, from what I have read I don't think that petroleum jelly actually heals. It really just sits on top of the skin, making it appear moist, but the skin is actually sealed underneath it and becomes drier and more chapped underneath as a result. In this way I have heard that you can develop a dependency on Vaseline, where it makes the problem underneath worse the more you use it so you use it more to try to counter it.

    I prefer more natural products such as those made with beeswax (e.g. the Burt's Bees line is great.) I'll be the odd chick out here and thumbs down this product.
