  • Vaseline: 140 Years & Counting (with a Giveaway)

    Original - Bedazzled USDid you know Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is 140 years old? It’s been around since 1870! And it’s been a staple in my life since childhood – my parents always had some around, and I’ve always kept some around since I started living on my own. I’m guessing most of you have the same experience?

    What you might not know is that there are a gazillion uses for Vaseline:

    Apartment Therapy‘s suggestions include using it to keep ants away from your pet’s bowl and preventing frozen locks.

    Christina Loves‘s list of 50 uses for Vaseline includes coating your eyelashes before you go to bed, making your flavored lip gloss out using powdered Kool Aid (great for little girls!), and removing makeup stains from clothing.

    Just do a search for “Vaseline uses” and you’ll get more ideas than you know what to do with.

    Lately, I’ve been using Vaseline to moisturize the boys’ lips.

    Vaseline recently launched their official Facebook page, where you can submit your favorite way to use Vaseline for a chance to win a Limited Edition Swarovski Crystal Jar of VPJ (worth around $100 – isn’t it awesome?!) and a $500 gift card.
