petroleum jelly

vaselina.jpgthis is not homemade , is not super expensive  and is my go to every time,  but I feel like I have to talk about it .I have been using petroleum jelly every other time and it works every time.  It is a mixture of mineral oils and waxes this helps seal your skin with water-protective barrier.  If the lack of fragrance  is what scares you off they have different fragrances for different taste ( not sponsored)  I  personally the normal (for my dry lips) ,the aloe Vera or the cocoa butter ,there are many others but these are my favorites.  Petroleum jelly can be used  as a face and body lotion,it moisturizes your skin preventing it from drying out,  trust me this is the most useful product you can have with you, it goes from skin protection to removing eye makeup to preventing split ends . My go to brand when it comes to petroleum jelly is Vaseline what is yours? This small jar will make a big difference in your life, if you would like me to make an article on the other benefits of Petroleum jelly comment bellow.
