Vaseline has long been a cult classic product and whilst we know and love the iconic product for our lips, there are so many other uses that keep it a firm staple in our beauty bags. Here are merely a few:
1. For razor blades
To preventing your razors from rusting, carefully apply a thin layer onto a dried blade to protect it from the build-up of rust
2. Removes chewing gum from hair
Work a small amount into the hair until the gum slides away from the hair strands
3. Hair dye barrier
Smooth a layer over your hairline to prevent hair dye from dripping down onto your skin.
4. Shampoo barrier
Apply it to your eyebrows before washing your hair to stop shampoo getting into your eyes.
5. To help remove elastic bands
It acts as a wonderful hair detangler and helps elastic bands to slip free.
6. On cuts and grazes
It acts as a barrier to keep out impurities and aids healing.
7. For opening nail polishes
Apply to the neck of a nail polish bottle to stop the cap sticking closed.
8. For cracking cuticles
Apply to finger and toe nails to keep your manicure and pedicures looking as good as new
9. Smoothing frizz
In humid weather, warm some into your palms before smoothing down stray hairs or frizzy roots
10. For longer-looking legs
When you've got your pins out, try highlighting your shins to give off the illusion of longer legs.
11. Prevent a dry nose
Dab a little under your nostrils to prevent dry skin and inside your nostrils to halt soreness in winter.
12. Hydrating night treatment
For a midnight mask, mix it with a couple of drops of oil (try argon or coconut).
13. A cheekbone highlighter
Dab it onto your cheekbones (on top of your makeup) for a subtle glossy highlight.
14. Glitter eye shadow
Got loose glitter? Mix it to make an eye shadow and layer onto the eyelids with a patting technique.
15. Elbow moisturiser
Apply it to your elbows to stop them looking scaly.
16. Eyebrow tamer
Use it to tame and groom your eyebrows.
17. For soft focus seflies
Beautify your camera by smearing a thin layer onto your camera lens to create a soft, romantic effect.
