Vaseline probably isn’t the first thing you think of when considering makeup-bag essentials. It’s one of those unsexy products that none of us remember buying, yet we all have a jar of it lying around somewhere. While it may not be the first (or last) thing you reach for in your daily routine, it’s arguably one of beauty’s most overachieving multi-taskers.
From taming brows to smoothing dry ends, Vaseline can be used to fix virtually any beauty problem. Below are just 25 ways to incorporate this versatile item into your regimen.

white and 1 tbsp of honey to the melted vaseline and apply on your face and neck.Leave for about 20 minutes and then
rinse with cold water.This deep moisturizing mask, softens your skin and the moisturizing elements in this mask smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
2.Vaseline to Prevent Uneven Tanning
Want to get that perfect sunless tan? Rub a small amount of vaseline on dry areas before applying fake tanning creams or lotions to prevent the appearance of uneven tanning.Skin areas that are dry and rough turns out to be darker than well-moisturized areas.
1. It subs in for mascara.
If you don’t love mascara but still crave defined lashes, coat them with a little Vaseline for a glossy finish. Petroleum jelly not only leaves lashes conditioned, but it’s even rumored to help them grow (score!).
2. Use it to restore cracked heels.
Slather a generous amount of Vaseline on dry feet, throw on a pair of fuzzy socks and leave them on overnight for super smooth skin the next morning.
3. It eliminates self-tanner streakiness.
Rub a little Vaseline along your wrists, ankles, elbows and knees before applying self-tanner to keep the formula from clinging to any dry areas and avoid patchiness.
4. It gives you a natural glow.
As an alternative to shimmering highlighters, dab a little along the tops of cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and under brows for a natural, understated sheen.
5. Prevent scars from forming.
If you accidentally burn yourself with a curling iron (happens to the best of us), try applying a thin layer of Vaseline over the wound to minimize future scarring.
6. It repels at-home hair color.
Follow in the footsteps of hair pros by applying a layer of Vaseline along your hairline and ears to protect the skin from staining while applying dye.
7. Use it as a cuticle cream.
Keep your manicure looking pristine with this affordable (and efficient) alternative for healing cracked cuticles.
8. Keep chaffing at bay.
Eliminate any uncomfortable friction caused by the summer heat with a layer of Vaseline over trouble spots. Make sure to use it sparingly though—excess product may melt and create a mess.
9. You won’t find a more hydrating face cream.
While it’s not as cosmetically elegant as your usual face creams, Vaseline is actually a great heavy duty moisturizer (don’t worry, it’s noncomedogenic) and works wonders on dehydrated skin in dry weather.
10. Or lip balm.
Suffer from flaky, dry lips? Vaseline works as a super conditioning salve and is a great primer under drying lipsticks.
