  1. Use in place of shaving cream
  2. Gloss lips
  3. Keeps cuticles soft
  4. Tame unruly eyebrows
  5. Lengthen and strengthen eyelashes
  6. Moisturizes chapped hands
  7. Removes makeup
  8. Shrinks pores
  9. Distresses furniture
  10. Repairs scratched CDs and DVDS
  11. Makes perfume last longer
  12. Apply to inside of pumpkin after craving at Halloween to last longer

Trust me, vaseline is a can’t miss product, that you will want to always have on hand. I know I do 🙂
