  • It is made with petroleum (jelly); I can't imagine that this is safe to have on your skin.

  • pagirl-because I said I am addicted to it! I love the smell and I have sinuses so it makes it easier to breathe but it is mostly because of the smell. I have OCD so I become obsessive with certain things
