Vintage Vaseline & Nifty Tips

Vintage Vaseline & Nifty Tips
Vaseline has been one of those major staples every woman has had in their lives whether it is in makeup collections, handbags, bed side tables whatever it is we have all had one somewhere in our lives. Vaseline has always had a place in my makeup drawer because it is one of those products that can get used for multiple things and most of you will know by now I love products that have more than one purpose. Clever little inventions!

When wondering around in Boot's purely just for another moisturizer I spotted these newly designed packaging's for Vaseline which of course sucked me into buying. I binned my extremely old, ratty Vaseline tins and decided to update them for these vintage looking ones! The Rosy lips has a place in my handbag as I do like how it gives you a bit of colour and the cocoa butter is on my bed side table. Because let's face it these new designs look a lot more appealing than they did before. It looks more feminine and a little classy with a touch of a vintage side because of the bold prints. I think Vaseline definitely did well in updating their market with these new designs, a lot more people are going to want to purchase these because of how pretty they will look.

I decided to include some ways you can use Vaseline other than for chapped lips just to spice this post up a little! These are a few I have used in the past or some I find most useful.

1. For dry chapped lips
2. To stop hair dye from going on your skin apply a bit of this around your hair line within your face before dying your hair.
3. Before putting shoes on to stop them from hurting NOT TOO MUCH THOUGH!
4. Little coat of this on your lashes to let them grow 
5. Put it on areas you get dry: feet, elbows, knees etc
6. Apply a bit of this on your wrists before applying perfume - meant to last longer
7. Great for those disastrous days where your ring is stuck on your finger!
8. Tames bad eyebrow days!
9. Apply tiny bits to end of the hair to maintain split ends
10. When you have a dry nose off colds etc apply a tiny bit of this to it
11. Apply to your cuticles to keep them in good shape/moisture!

Of course if you Google 'ways to use Vaseline' you will come across tonnes of articles for more ways to use it. These are just ways I find quite useful so it is worth chucking one in your handbag and definitely worth buying an updated one just because of the pretty packaging!

What do you think of Vaselines new look?

  2. Loving the new design tins, so cute! I am a huge Vaseline fan, I'm a big believer that it can solve a lot of dramas, in the Winter when I have sore lips I slather tons on before I go to sleep and then when I wake up my lips are as good as new :D

    1. I agree I always use this for numerous things and the best part is you don't need to carry tonnes of products if you are staying over night somewhere this can probably do well just for dry skin!
