11 SIMPLE WAYS I USE VASELINE !!!


Hi!!! How's everyone doing today? I can generalize that most Nigerians know what Vaseline is, you've probably used it or know someone who does. I grew up with Vaseline and it never leaves my vanity, that's because I have found multiple uses for it! I always buy the one with the cocoa butter scent, I think the regular one smells like "engine oil".  Biko, don't mind me. So here are 11 things I use Vaseline for:

  • Eye Makeup remover: Vaseline easily removes eye makeup, I moisturize around my eyes: eyelids, eyebrows where I have applied makeup, I rub it in then wipe it off with a swab of cotton tissue or a warm cloth. It's that easy!
  • Remove Chewing-gum from surfaces: I chew gum regularly so it's not a surprise that you would find gum on my table or some odd places, especially on my bedside table sha. You can un-stick the gum by applying Vaseline on that spot till it comes off. 
  • Maintaining Perfume Scent: Before applying perfume, I rub my my arms or pulse points with Vaseline. This way the scent of the perfume lasts longer...if you have a really good perfume, it can last for days on your skin! Try it!
  • Get Rid of Ashy Spots: No matter how I apply body cream there are some spots that remain dry or turn ashy after a few hours. To prevent this I apply Vaseline to my elbows, my ankles, my knees and my hands. This is dry season oh! Say no to ashy skin!
  • Insert Your Earrings Easily: Sometimes it is difficult putting on earrings. I have two holes in each ear and there's a tendency for one to get blocked. Even if it's not blocked, sometimes it is just difficult to insert earrings. I make this process less stressful by rubbing a bit of Vaseline on my lobes. No more injuries!
  • Prevent Sticky Lids: I love my nail polish but there's always the problem of opening the bottle after a while, that's because the nail polish around the tips would have tried up. I avoid this by rubbing a bit of Vaseline around the tip before I cover it after each use! 
  • Un-stick Nail Polish: Still on nail polish, I rub Vaseline around my cuticles when applying polish to my nails, I always make mistakes and the polish would stain the skin around my nails, but with Vaseline as a base, it comes off easily once my nail polish is dry.
  • Shine Those Shoes: Please don't laugh at me, I use a tiny bit of Vaseline to shine my shoes on days when I'm running late and need my shoes looking good. Just a tiny bit of Vaseline will revive your shoes.
  • Excellent for Exfoliating: Did you know you could mix sugar and Vaseline together and use the mixture to exfoliate your skin? Try that one. I sometimes add some essential oils...
  • Brow Grooming Made Easy: I like to moisturize my eyebrows before tweezing/shaping them, Vaseline makes the hair softer and makes the whole process easier. It also minimizes your chances of getting injured especially if you use blades to groom your brows.
  • Grow Your Lashes: I hardly use lash extensions, I use only mascara on my lashes and I like the length. Vaseline can lengthen your lashes, over time you will notice it grows! I'm testifying oh!
What other ways do you use Vaseline?

  22. Hi,
    Your blog is just too interesting and very effective. You give make up tips, recipes, skin care, places to visit, relationship advice, just everything and you are so sincere (what I really admire about you).
    I have learnt and I'm still learning from your blog. You don't just blog, you make videos to demonstrate and teach people. Would you believe me if I told you I actually went to the bottom from your very first posts to catch up on all the past years cos I don't want to miss out on anything at all.
    Truly, I cant start explaining right now how grateful I personally am to u for what you're doing. Your blog needs a special award, something like "the blog of blogs". Keep it up dear, do not relent.
    I saw your name among most influential blogs or so, cant remember the exact words they used to describe you guys but I just want to tell you to continue doing what you do. You may not know how much I and lots of other people appreciate you, we may not always take time to say this but continue the good work my dear, the world is waiting for you.

    Much love..x
