At the risk of sounding like a grandma, I’m going to publicly declare my love for Vaseline. For those of you who don’t know, Vaseline is basically a tub of petroleum jelly, and is quite possibly the best thing since sliced bread. Although its ugly blue and white packaging leaves much to be desired, it makes up for it with its multiple uses.
Makeup Mishaps Eraser
If you’re a noob at doing eye makeup, be sure to have a pot of Vaseline stashed in your beauty cabinet for emergencies. Just dip a cotton bud in some Vaseline and it’ll easily erase any makeup mishaps without leaving a sticky residue on your skin.

Keeps perfume scent longer
The next time you want your scent to last longer, you don’t need to douse yourself in your favourite perfume. Instead, just dab some Vaseline on your pulse points before spritzing it on and the scent will linger a little longer.
As ludicrous as this sounds, covering freshly-popped pimples with a thin layer of Vaseline will actually speed up the healing process. Contrary to common notion, petroleum jelly will not clog your pores, and instead acts as a protective layer to keep germs and bacteria out.

Protects and moisturizes chapped lips
Don’t you hate it when the wind blows a strand of hair into your face, and it sticks to your lipgloss? Vaseline moisturizes and protects your lips just as well, if not better, than most lip balms that I’ve tried. It also has the added bonus of not sticking to your hair.
Speaking of hair, Vaseline can also be used on split ends. If you’re having a bad hair day, try using a pinch of Vaseline to neaten any pesky fly-aways or unruly split ends. Just don’t use too much OK? Or you might end up with greasy hair like Severus Snape.

Tame unruly eyebrows
The next time your catty frenemy makes a comment about your unruly unibrow, try dabbing some Vaseline on your eyebrows with a cotton bud. The sticky substance will help the hairs to stick together. If all else fails, go get your eyebrows plucked by a pro (and no, Steven Lim doesn’t count). Trust me, eyebrows make a pretty big difference.

Why buy overpriced cuticle oil when you can use Vaseline instead? Besides, it won’t leave a greasy or oily residue, so you won’t have to worry about how you’re going to text with oily fingers.
