I’ve read numerous articles that Jennifer Aniston used Vaseline under her eyes. Now, I never actually heard her say, “HEY GUYS! I use Vaseline under my eyes!” but I have read about this phenomenon in numerous magazines so it may or may not be true.
And I admit I have used Vaseline on my face and I have used it under my eyes and I’m not sorry about that in the least.
Vaseline, in its classic jar packaging, is not only messy but also a breeding ground for bacteria. Good news kids, it actually comes in a tube if you so desire and it’ll only cost you $2 to $3 bucks.
When you’re out there like me spending $150 on eye cream or moisturizer and suddenly discover that $3 Vaseline does just a good job to battle dryness you feel some sense of relief and some sense of “Why am I crazy enough to spend all this money on skincare when I could have been spending a few bucks instead?!”
This past Winter was a rough one for me. It was very mild here in New York but my skin was very, very dry none the less particularly my eye lids and under my eyes.
Vaseline or just plain old Petrolatum is non-irritating and a great way heal skin and improve moisture levels!
I did in fact start using it on my face as well recently. It’s greasy, it’s gross, but it really does go a long way at hydrating my skin. It’s not something I’d suggest doing every single day but if you’re skin is feeling super tight and dehydrated try it one night and you’ll see considerable improvement in the morning. It doesn’t leave my skin shiny or oily either and rinses clean away in the shower.
P.S. If you’re sleep with someone beware! This isn’t exactly the most glamorous thing in the world to use on your face when you sleep with someone. Also, be prepared to change your sheets the next day as it does rub off on your pillow case!
So, I’m sorry but I’m not sorry that I do in fact use Vaseline on my face and under my eyes!
Have you every used Vaseline on your face?
