CLOSED ~ Vaseline Review and Giveaway!

I had no idea that Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is celebrating its 140th year anniversary. That is pretty amazing. I know I have used Vaseline since I was little. We always had a little tub of Vaseline for chapped lips or really dry skin. My mom swore by it.

As I grew up, I started using Vaseline lotion. And to this day, that is hubby's favorite lotion so I have it stocked in our bathroom cabinet. I still have Vaseline tubs in the cabinet as well. Vaseline is a staple in our house and in many houses across the country.

And now they redesigned the tub to have a flip cap. I love the new flip cap because it is easier to use and less messy. I can't tell you how many times, I have dropped the cap and/or misplaced it. Vaseline also has a NEW Rich Conditioning Cocoa Butter variety as well. I loved it. It smelled great and it really helped my dry elbows!

Vaseline is also launching the official Vaseline Facebook page and sharing some of our favorite unique and inventive ways to use Vaseline. Like them on Facebook and be able to win some cool prizes. Each week, we’ll be selecting a winner to receive a Limited Edition Swarovski Crystal Jar of VPJ (worth around $100) and a $500 gift card! They will also be randomly selecting 5 winners, who take the extra time to submit a video, to win a Limited Edition Swarovski Crystal Jar set (worth around $750) & a $1,000 gift card!

You can check out that contest, along with other fun content including videos at the Vaseline Facebook page.

And, of course, I have goodies for you to win. One lucky winner will win a tub of the Baby Vaseline and the new cocoa butter as well. You know the drill.

  1. Of course I use Vasoline. I don't know anyone who doesn't! For chapped lips, cracked elbows and for my horrendous dry heels! My son uses it when he gets a new tatoo and DH has been known to put it on a new pair of boots to waterproof them! The new lotions are great and make me feel like I'm doing something extra without breaking the bank! Thanks

  8. I use Vaseline when I have a small cut. Helps stop the bleeding enough to keep me from needing a band-aid! This is especially useful if it's something like a facial blemish that starts to bleed.

  92. I like to use Vaseline on my lips, elbows and feet. If I get any chapped areas on my body (for example, around my nose) I will use it there as well. It is calming to those areas that have become dry and inflamed.
