You know those products that are probably sitting around your house—or maybe your parents’ house—without you giving any thought to them in years? Well, maybe it’s time to take a second look, especially when it comes to Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.
I recently picked up a tube of this that was laying around my mom’s house, and I have to say, I was totally amazed at how many beauty-related things it could do. The two that really spoke to me, though, are these:
1) It works as a fantastic lip balm! It softens and smooths even the most chapped lips instantly.
2) It moisturizes dry knees and elbows! Mine tend to be super ashy and scaly, but with a couple days of rubbing Vaseline on them? Like a baby’s bottom.
And the best part? It’s under $5! What could be better?
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly retails for $3.09 at diapers.com.
