I only use vasoline if I have painfully dry skin which thankfully is not often. I put it on before I go to bed and the problem is resolved by the morning. Petrolatum, the main ingredient in Vasoline, is a by product of petroleum production. It's not something I'd put on my skin regularly.
I have extremely dry skin and my lips get painfully chapped really easily. Burts bees lip balm helps prevent but if it's already in bad shape, the vaseline helps it heal the quickest. I don't use it a lot but it works when I need it to. (And for my daughter with the same problem, it doesn't sting like Carmex or Blistex or any of that stuff, so I can get her to use it and keep it on long enough to help heal).
FYI when she was little, she ate a blob of vaseline. I called poison control and they told me that with the amount she ingested (about a spoonful) the worst it would do was act like a laxative.
Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.
weird, i just bought a 'tub' of that gunk and was wondering what to do with it.
Lol, why'd you buy it if you didn't know what to do with it?
I prefer Aquaphor.
I also love St. Ives scrub.. it makes my face feel great too!
My face is oily enough, i dont need all that grease!
