I have realised Vaseline is amazing! I had an idea to make solid-like portable perfume with it and when i was making it i just thought that there must be a million uses for Vaseline that I and others don't know of yet!

         So far i use it for:
Lip Chap
Lip Gloss (tinted with Lipstick and scented with essential oils)
Mascara (only if i don't have any, it makes it shine and is great if you're desperate)
Mascara remover
Cuticle Cream (works just as good as my $8 bert's bees cuticle cream)
Lotion (sometimes my knees or elbows look dry and a tiny bit of Vaseline helps)


So what do you guys use Vaseline for?
I'd love to know!  Grin  Wink

Wow, this is such an interesting topic, I have many times wondered how to use vaseline to it's full extent! I haven't tried the mascara thing but I definitely will! I also use it instead of foundation sometimes, before I put on eyeshadow to make it last for longer. And I saw Tyra Banks say you can use it in your hair and on the cheekbones and take cool pictures with high contrast, when she did it it looked great but I haven't done that one myself though  Grin

well im prone to inner ear infections or dryness when i get water in my ears so this is what my doctor reccomended for when i wash my hair or go swimming .... get two bits of cotton wool and smother them in vaseline then put them in your ears, cheap easy ear plugs!  i know at first i though eeeew, but contrary to what i though it doesnt leave your ears with globs of vaseline and when they are in, you cant see them now i wont go without them  Cool

And I also saw the Top Model where they used Vaseline and it looked so cool! I've also heard of using it on camera lenses, I've never tried it before but I should one day.

i use it to lubricate my stretched ears when putting in bigger jewellery, and as an eyeshadow base to make my cheap eyeshadow look brighter and stay longer.

i use it when i get new shoes...like heels or flipflops that are rough when you first get them around the toe or on the sides...i rub the vaseline around those areas of the shoe to make it softer

eh, remember that vaseline dissolves latex. Enough on that topic. It is great for fingernails though! Keeps them healthy and strong & helps splitting! But, I once had the bright idea to put it in my hair, and it took FOREVER to get it out, it was a disaster! So, be careful of that one!
