Vaseline is an absolute godsend and who knew that it had so many uses too. This miracle-worker of a product dates back to 1985 when Robert Chesebrough patented the petroleum jelly formula. It was originally created to heal dry skin.

But since its creation, the uses for this thick jelly substance have become tenfold. From skincare and moisturising, to applying an amazing makeup highlight, to preventing diaper rash. Some people even use Vaseline to prevent battery corrosion. Who would have thought? The Mod Maven has gathered 18 amazing uses for Vaseline.

Facial Moisturiser

The most obvious use for Vaseline is as a facial moisturiser. You would think that it would clog your pores. But no, it won’t. Vaseline is non-comedogenic. It is best applied at night as it may take a while to be absorbed. Not a look you want to rock during the day

Makes Perfume Last Longer

Applying some Vaseline to your pulse points before applying perfume will make the scent last longer. That is because moisturised skin holds scent better.

Achieve The Perfect Tan

Applying tanner at home can be somewhat tricky at times. No one wants to end up looking like a piebald! Use Vaseline on dry spots before applying the self-tanner. This will moisturise these areas ( usually the knees, ankles and elbows). These areas would otherwise appear darker than the rest of your body.
