helps with my bub's diaper rash
my baby has a sensitive skin and at the moment, I am still figuring out what diaper to use and it resulted to my baby having rashes. I bought a small size of this and it did wonders, not only it saved me from waiting of my baby everytime I put some diapers on but it provided comfort to her as well.
Purchased in June 2019 for A$9.99.
This is perfect!
Dry lips. Dry skin. And brittle hair. These are things we all struggle with. Some more than others. I’ve never been a naturally moisturized person, with the exception of my overly oily face, dry skin has always been an issue for me. I can recall times I’d apply lotion at least 7 times a day and I’d still have really dry skin, often times worse than what I began with. I’ve tried plenty of at home remedies, and although they may have worked for the time being I later discovered that these specific remedies were not sustainable for long periods of...time due to running low on ingredients, and lack of time to actually make a quality product that wasn’t harmful to the skin nor the hair. Becoming fed up, I went out on a hunt for phenomenal hair and skin products. I searched everywhere. Convenience stores. Grocery Stores. Hair Stores. I’d detected the same results in different bottles. I began to lose hope. Was there even a product out there for me? Would I suffer from the dry skin syndrome forever? Would I ever be able to feel secure in my own skin? What about my hair? What should I do? Finally, I decided to do a little research. I googled and googled while also doing loads of complaining until suddenly, voila! My mom had taken matters into her own hands, introducing me to Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. Goodbye dry skin. It can be used for brittle hair, excessively dry skin, rashes, scars or scabs, or just as a moisturizer. This jelly is very versatile. I use it almost everyday, typically after a shower, and I only have to apply it once a day. It’s sufficient enough to keep my skin moisturized for as long as 24 hours. Also, it’s great with protecting your skin from harsh cold weather. However, with every good thing comes a flaw. While Vaseline can be very versatile, it doesn’t necessarily support every hair type. Under my observations, I discovered that it works best in more of a natural or curly hair type.
Reliable for generations.
My Dad swears by Vaseline, he keeps a tub on his bedside table and applies it to his lips every night. Whenever my sister or myself have had chapped lips, dry skin, chaffing, cracked heels - you name it, if all else fails, steal some of Dad's Vaseline and it will do the trick. It's very versatile and reliable. It's become something of a staple in many households, including my own.
Wow! Mom was right!
My mom always told me to use vasaline for my dry skin. I never listened to mom. But when nothing else worked, I turned to this as a last resort. Mom was right! This is my best friend. I use it for so many things. From dry nose that can bleed to dry skin, it works wonders. It helps heal the dry or damaged skin. It works fast. It comes of easy. What more could you ask for?!!
I have bought this Vaseline product from the Gold cross chemist in towradgi and it has so many uses especially when it's the winter months though the jar I bought usually just sits there most of the times and hardly ever gets used / I would recommend it to most skin types especially if someone has sore and dry.lips
Absolutely works wonder
What I love about this jell, it works on different things. From hair to toe, it works wonders. When I run out of hair foam, I use this to manage and style my hair. When I want to massage my feet, I used this. When I want to clean my cellphone, I also use this and many more. This product is truly handy and you’ll be surprised that you can use this on different things that you can’t even imagine it will work – you just name it. And what’s more, it is affordable!
I've found that my lips were dryer than before I started using Vaseline for my lips, and I later found out it was because this product is literally petrol-based and should absolutely not be used for any sort of restorative treatment. My recommendation would be to use this for minor wounds or burns only, and I would strongly urge you not to use it for an extended period of time on any part of the skin.
Useful for minor burns.
Terrible on lips. It will actually worsen the state of your lips if you use it for an extended period of time.
An oldie but a goodie!
I hadn't used Vaseline for over 10 years until I recently discovered it again. My lips have never been smoother or more moisturised. It's also great for any stubborn dry patches and even for aiding the growth of your eyelashes! The list of uses for this amazing product is endless! Definitely highly recommended!
Cheap and effective
Works when all else fails.
My best friend had a little scab inside her nose and after many ointments, including prescription cream, a specialist told her to try Vaseline. For the first time in years the sore healed and disappeared. I have used it on myself and my kids when they get little scratches around and inside their nose and it works better than anything. I would not be without it in the cupboard.
if you accept that the nature of it make sit greasy, nothing is wrong with it.
This product has been around for so many years and probably won't be dis continued any time soon. I remember using this as a child but not anymore. It is a cheap alternative but I didn't really like it because I find the product very sticky. Once you have applied it on the area (e.g lips) its stuck all over your fingers. And then you have to wash it all off. Also in the tub it's in I don't think its very hygenic when one person uses there dirty finger and then the next person has to dip there finger in too. Maybe if they re invented packaging it could help. Overall, I would stay away from this product
Can't go wrong
Vaseline Petrolium Jelly has been around for many years, I remember my grandmother always had it in her bathroom cupboard, as did my mum and so do I. Great for dry lips and dry skin generally. It is a little sticky and takes some time to absorb but it's effective. For really dry hands, apply liberally and rub for several minutes, apply cotton gloves overnight and wash hands in the morning. Vaseline is very cheap and has no perfume fragrance, so it is very mild on even sensitive skin. So forget the big name products and give Vaseline a go.
Whenever my skin is in a really bad condition I use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. I suffer from dry skin and sometimes my normal lotion can't cope with it. In this case I use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly over night and it helps my skin tremendously. It is cheap and available in every supermarket. I don't think I would use it on a daily basis as it does not easily is soaked up by the skin. Normally I use it on my very dry feet and I then wear socks overnight. This is the perfect cure fro my cracked heals. I tried it on my lips but would not recommend it as the taste is off putting.
This is a reliable product that has been proven over generations. It is low priced, readily available, and provides effective protection for the skin against moisture loss and chaffing. Only a little is needed for every application, so a tub lasts a long time. I'd recommend it for any skin area, but, personally, I'd avoid putting it on my lips as I wouldn't want to swallow any.
If you're on a budget, this is the product to buy. It's "cheap as chips" and a little goes a long way. Provides an effective barrier to keep moisture in while cracked sk...
a reliable product that has many used from nappy rash to moisutirsing of dry lips and chafing. definately a cost effective purchase
this is a product that has been around for years, even when i was a kid. packaging hasnt changed nor has the quality of product, thus ide say its very reliable. its not expensive and is readily available at chemists, supermarket shelves and comes in a large tub. can be used on dry lips, nappy crease and chafing or as a lubricant. is easy to apply and has no fragrance, a little bit goes a long way
the lid can become a little messy if the product gets onto it.
This is a handy little product to have around in the cupboard. I have used this product for a variety of things from cracked skin to dry lips to baby rashes. It is one of the more inexpensive nappy rash creams around and readily available. The only downside is that it can be quite sticky so if you put it on your hands or feet you can't really touch anything for a while. Definitely worth keeping some around at all times.
Very inexpensive and has a wide range of uses from nappy rash to dry skin and lips.
There is none, it is a great product.
