Versatile Vaseline

Hey everyone! I promise you all I'm going to get back into blogging everyday, but I have a lot going on in my life to try and handle.

In my last post I told you all that I burnt my hand the other day. Unfortunately, I didn't know the iron was on when I grabbed it. (If anyone knows of a scar minimizer or remover, please let me know!)

We went to CVS and the pharmacist said that Vaseline was the best thing to use. He was right. The burn isn't nearly as bad as it was on Saturday morning.

But Vaseline isn't just for burns. There are so many different uses for it.

Versatile Vaseline

1. Put a coat on your eyelashes before you go to bed. Lots of people swear by this – and say it will make your lashes grow longer and thicker over time.

2. Put a coat of Vaseline on your feet at night, cover them with socks and wake up to softer feet – every day!

3. Put Vaseline on your elbows every day – they will stay soft!

4. Put Vaseline on your cuticles several times a day for softer and better looking cuticles every day.

5. Put Vaseline on chapped lips

8. Melt Vaseline and one chocolate chip in the microwave, mix and let resolidify for chocolate lip gloss!

Thanks to Christinaloves for these great tips!

That's it! How do you use Vaseline?


  1. Vaseline = magic. We have some in our bathroom cupboard right now! Definitely great as a moisturizer! I hope your burn gets better quickly!

    1. Thanks Ashley! I now have about 3 jars of it. I'm good for about the next 50 years. It lasts forever!

    2. Saw the troll comment... Don't let it get to ya :) he's probably making up stuff !

      Great post, thanks


  2. When I'm sick and blow my nose a lot, it gets really dry, so I put some on it. We've had the same little container of Vaseline for at least 2 years.


  3. THIS IS NOT A REAL POST... IT'S PLAGARIZED, COPYRIGHTED... you need to take this down!

    1. If you were brave enough to show your name and face, then I would consider it.

    2. Urmmm maybee if I acctually had an accountttttt...i just don't think it's right to copy and paste and call it your own. I really liked your blog you almost inspired me to start one of my own but now.... :/

    3. It's not hard to make an account. And I already emailed her about it. She is fine with it. I even mentioned her in the post.

    4. Hey, how about we stop picking fights with people that are much older than you? K? Olivia said so herself that she has permission, so try not to get attention.

  4. Wait... Are you younger? '_' oh Fridays,

    Olivia, I accidentally flat ironed my finger the other day. Can I borrow some Vaseline? :P

    1. Haha! Sure! I'll send some right over!
      I hate when I burn my finger using hair tools. Beauty hurts!

  5. Sorry for going off on you like that. I was having a terrible week.

    I admire your blog and don't take anything I said personally.

  6. Thank you for saying that. It shows maturity. :)
