DIY Beauty With Vaseline

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Vaseline Jelly through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Vaseline Jelly, all opinions are my own.
i am so excited to share some beauty uses for one of my favorite (and least expensive!) beauty products. the Blushing Basics household should seriously consider investing in some stocks for Vaseline because we own so much! we keep the large tubs in every bathroom, the medium sized tubs in drawers/cars/purses and the teeny tiny tubs can be found in my children's backpacks. all in the name of moisturizing.

Vaseline is so great because it deeply moisturizes to heal dry skin. Vaseline Jelly penetrates skin to create an intercellular occlusive barrier (on surface skin). so what does that mean in terms we can all understand? it locks in moisture. while being a semi-solid at room temp it liquifies when rubbed. this helps it to absorb into the surface skin.

what else makes Vaseline so great? it is safe for so many skin types. Vaseline Jelly is 100% pure which means it is non-comedogenic (won't clog pores!) non-irritating and hypoallergenic. the perfect trifecta when it comes to skincare.

not only is it a great moisturizer, it also has amazing beauty benefits as well. check out the video below where i share my favorite beauty uses for Vaseline Jelly:
