I always have a big tub of Vaseline somewhere in the house. It is such a useful product to have, it serves so many purposes and it is very very cheap.
10 Unsual uses for vaseline
The main use for Vaseline in our household was probably the same as for most people: to prevent and sooth dry lips or dry skin, but although petroleum jelly have many amazing uses to helps us look more amazing, it does not limit itself to the realm of beauty.

Keep reading for some very unexpected uses for this amazing product:

#1 –  It will keep your perfume for longer.
As moisturized skin holds scent better, you only have to rub some Vaseline on your pulse points before you spraying your perfume and you will be smelling fabulous for longer.

#2 –  It helps define lashes.
If you are not a mascara person but you like to lashes to make a statement, apply a tiny amount of vaseline to them and use the curler. Your lashes will look fuller and longer and it is said that it also helps to grow them faster.

#3 – It helps control brows.
Vaseline is great to keep the brows looking amazing for the whole day. Dab the pad of one finger into the vaseline and rub it with another finger to distribute the formula and apply to your eyebrows.

#4 – Polish Shoes
By rubbing some vaseline onto boots, shoes, bags and any other leather products and buffing them you will make them look good as new.

#5 –  To help heal sunburn
For those days when you fall sleep on the beach or you forget to apply SPF and you skin is paying the price, apply large supplies of Vaseline to the affected areas to lock in moisture and prevent peeling.

#6 – Use as eye make-up remover
Vaseline is an inexpensive option to gently and easily remove any eye make-up, from eyeliner to mascara to eye shadow. Gently apply it around the eye area and rub the area with a cotton pad.

#7 – To aid putting on earrings
If you don’t wear earrings regularly, putting on earring can be very uncomfortable and even painful. Rub your lobes with a little Vaseline beforehand for an easier time.

#8 – Customise your own cosmetics.
By adding some Vaseline to your favorite loose pigments, you can make a creamy eye shadow, blush and even a tinted lip balm.

#9 – Remove Makeup Stains
For those days where you were to tired or lazy to remove your makeup before going to bed (it’s not just me, right?) use a damp washcloth with some Vaseline on it to remove makeup stains from clothes, pillows and blankets.

#10 – As an instant highlighter
Just dab a tiny amount of Vaseline on the high points of your face for a naturally luminous glow. Also, in the summer, slide some down your shins to make your legs glow.

What do you think? Do you have any other uses that you would like to share?
