Before Rocket XL even contacted me to review Vaseline and Q-tips I was already a believer. Both have been a household staple since I can remember. I had my own jar of Vaseline when I was a kid because I have dry skin... and especially in the winter! And now that I'm a mom I use it for my kids too; to soothe their skin and bums. I don't know what I would do without it. I thought I knew everything about it's amazingness but I've recently found that there are really SO many more uses for it. From your nails, to your hair & skin... let me just say I'm excited to try out all the things on the list of uses I was given. I mean did you ever think Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly could help moisturize dry hair or add luster? The thought never crossed my mind...but it can!
putting a tiny amount of vaseline is a great way to conceal split ends!I want to share just a few more make-up ideas using these products. No matter how busy you get this holiday season, your eyes, cheeks and lips can be glowing, gorgeous and ready-to-go. Sounds fabulous, right?
·A pinch of your favorite powdered drink combined with Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly creates flavored lip gloss – it’s pretty and delicious!
When I read this I thought: Genius! How have I not thought or heard of this before? My go-to look is usually more natural in the lips so I thought using a mild pink color powder would be perfect. And for when I'm dressing up more and want something more bold I went with a cherry mix to add more vivid color. What I love is that you get the glossy look in addition to the flavor and color. Plus it's fun to try to make your own gloss. Little tip: if it's grainy before hand, it'll be a little grainy in your gloss. That can be nice for exfoliating lips, of course (;
·Mix a dab of Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly with loose eye shadow to create a moisturizing blush.
You saw this post right? My cheeks look more shiny than normal (in a good way!) and that's because I used this tip! I had this pale blush color that wasn't much on it's own but when I added Vaseline to it, it really made my face glow. It's moisturizing too. Who wouldn't love that?
·Use Q-tips® Precision Tips™ for eye shadow application because they’re disposable – you can use a new one for each shadow color to ensure hues stay true.
Designed with pointed cotton tips, they are soft, safe and gentle, and perfect for tasks requiring a little more precision, such as makeup application and touch-ups. I was able to use my Vaseline® Petroleum Jelly as a base- just swiped a thin layer over my lids and applied my shadow over it with the same Q-tip. The look not only makes you glow and sets your shadows perfectly but it moisturizes your skin at the same time. Beautiful.
I was also able to try the NEW Vaseline® Lip Therapy Original® (pictured at top) and was blown away! First- look how compact it is? This is going to be a new permanent addition to my purse. You'll love it. Vanity Fair has already acknowledged how wonderful a product it is. So shiny on my lips and smooth.
I hope you have fun trying these tips out- have a beautiful holiday season! (: Feel free to share more uses of these products that you've discovered!
