9 Clever Beauty Hacks Using Vaseline


Vaseline or petroleum jelly is a common household product for its multitasking ability and cheap price tag. There’s more to it than just as a lip moisturiser and here we gathered a few different ways to maximise its potential to ease your beauty routine!

Smooth hair

Tame frizz and seal those dry split ends with a bit of petroleum jelly. This trick can even be used to keep unruly brow hairs in place!

As a highlighter

Blend a small amount of Vaseline on your cheekbones for that dewy, luminous glow. Do the same along your shins too and you’ll get an irresistible goddess-like glow instantly.

Prep skin for fragrance

Make your scent last longer by rubbing some Vaseline on your pulse points before you spritz, as fragrance clings on to hydrated skin better than dry skin.
