The wonder product

 

There are so many products out there for your hair and your face and your skin. Each product is filled with tons of chemicals, and while most are healthy, they can also cause allergic reactions or just not mesh well with your body.

My favorite product, also happens to be the most commonly found things in drug stores, Vaseline! I started out just using it for my lips, but I soon realized how beneficial it is for the rest of your face as well.

Vaseline is 100% petroleum jelly, a moisturizing, non-comedogenic substance. This means it heals your chapped skin without clogging your pores.

Uses:

Chapped lips, slide it on like lip balm when you go to sleep or even put it on top of your lipstick to add moisture and shine

Eyelashes: use you finger or a clean mascara wand to apply a thin layer to your lashes. It makes your lashes thicker, fuller, and stronger. Just be gentle when you take it off and be sure not to put any vaseline directly into your eyes.

Acne: dab vaseline onto existing zits and on acne scars and blemishes. The moisturizing quality of the petroleum jelly allows skin to heal faster and acts as a guard on your skin so more dirt and oil can’t get into the zit.

Remove makeup: I would not recommend using vaseline as your main makeup remover. I usually use it to take off eye makeup if I forget to take it off before I shower or if I accidentally sleep with makeup on. Lightly spread vaseline over the already loosened/smudged makeup and wipe it away with a washcloth or tissue.

There are so many other uses for vaseline, these are just the ones I personally have tried.

Citrus brush cleaner review 

After mentioning this brush cleaner in a bunch of other posts, I finally got around to doing my review! This product is so great and I am so happy I purchased it.

Applying: Take the bottle and spray like once or twice on an old washcloth. Rub the brushed bristles in it in a circular motion. You can literally see all the extra product coming off your brushes and your brushes will also look much cleaner after. The scent of the spray is really citrusy and sweet, so if you’re not into that it might be a little overwhelming. For the 3 brushes I used (foundation, blush and eye crease) I sprayed the towel about 5 times, and I think I over did it! You really don’t need that much product to fully clean your brushes meaning that it will probably last you a long time.

I think Sephora sells this in 3 sizes, and it ranges from $6.00-11.00. The website only sells the $11.00 one from what I can tell so if you want a smaller size/lower price I would buy it in store. I totally give this a 10/10!
