  • I have used products with vaseline in them but never straight vaseline reminds me when i was a kid and my sister came home with a bag of it and said it was silly putty i liked to never get the stuff off my hand...now i have heard of putting on your hands with gloves and loose rubberband over night

  • Used to work with a Dr who prescribed this for his patients all of the time....and you know? It does wonders. I can't get past the greasiness for myself, though.

  • I've used it on my hands (just the backs), my feet, and my lips. I use it for DS, when he has a runny nose his cheeks, under his nose, and lips just get soooooo raw and he won't let me put anything else on. I don't use it anywhere else on my or his body though.

  • My om slathered us in it when we were babies and she uses it to take off her makeup. I use it on my nose and upper lips when my allergies get really bad and the skin gets really chapped.
