Saw the little tin of Vaseline rolling around in my bag the other day and it got me thinking… I had forgotten how in the past I used it for more than just moisturising my lips. We all love a product that has multiple uses and this is definitely one of those products.
I did a little investigating and came up with this TOP 10 of alternative uses for this versatile product.
