Dry, damaged skin
Reviewed on February 28, 2016

Allows me to protect my skin from the elements and prevent it from losing moisture, which most acne treatments really sap your skin of! Vaseline helps prevent the acne I get caused by dry skin. I really load up on it in the winter, applying it after my aveeno daily moisturizing lotion. I detracted one star because it can be really tricky to use under makeup. I recommend a primer and a mattifying foundation. Even then, it tends to get greasy and doesn't have the same coverage. I'll deal for how good this is at preventing dry skin and breakouts. It's also cheap and easily available.

The only thing that works

I absolutely love vaseline petroleum jelly. I have really bad acne and it's the only thing that works. I started using it a couple of days ago, and I already see the difference! The redness on my face just becomes less and less and the whiteheads also become less! It sound a little bit 'ew' what I'm going to say, but the petroleum jelly literally sucks the pus out of the pimple. If you use it as a night cream, I recommend switching pillow cases everynight because your pillow gets greasy!

I am going to the doctor for quiet a while now, and nothing she prescripted has worked yet. I read something about vaseline a couple of weeks ago, amd now that I use it it is the only thing that has ever had effect on my face! I am extremely relieved! My acne is not gone yet, but I'm getting there!

any news?

Yes, I really believe my face is doing better, altough it still hasn't cleared up entirely. I have A LOT of red spots, but no more pimples (whiteheads and such)! Sometimes, a little whitehead pops up, but then I'll put some Vaseline on it, which sucks the pus out, and the pimple is gone without a scar (it leaves a red mark for the rest of the day, but it is gone the next). BUT I don't believe my face will clear up, only with using Vaseline. I am still going to the doctor AND I'm using antibiotical pills. As I said, my face is still full of red spots, but it is much better than it would be if I didn't use Vaseline. I have used Benzoylperoxide and that made my face really worse. When I used that, I had a lot of swollen spots and much more whiteheads. So I am still very pleased, but I think this product is not entirely enough to clear my whole face. Still I am very hopeful and still using it.

I'm the type of person who use home remedies on my face, hair and underarms because i believe that using natural products will treat and help my skin and hair better than those chemical thingy products.

I have never thought that I will use vaseline as my night mosturuzer pack. At first, I just recommended my mom to use vaseline (since I read that it has the ability to heal) because she is having an itchy thingy feeling near her ear which was turning black and chappy after she used it, she told me it worked perfectly and it does not feel dry anymore. After using it everyday and now it's completely healed so..... she is not using it anymore we have much vaseline left in our house. soooo I've searched for its advantages and read reviews. yey

When I was on my teenages years, I'm the type of person who does not grew pimples easily since I really take care of my face every morning and night. But now that i'm on SUPER STRESS and busy stage of my college life which is THESIS, pimples are starting to grow and I believe it is due to stress and not enough cleansing. Now I have so much pimples growing on my chin. YES only on the chin. and i'm not used to it, I always touch and pop it even though I noted myself not to pop because it will only get worse and will leave marks and also I'm also starting to have a dry skin, i think its because of products I used to remove the acne and marks. And yey I remembered vaseline advantages and on the first night that I used it, after cleansing my face I applied thin layer of vaseline on my face and slept overnight with it, though I really dont like the greasy felling..., but when I woke up in the morning my skin absorbed the jelly and it feel so soft even after cleansing my face with my usual foam cleanser it still felt soft and not dry AND the new pimple that grew yesterday became smaller hahaha! So I decided to use it as my night cream. I really recommend this product to those who have dry face PS I also use it on my eye lashes because it makes it stronger and longer.

Just started using petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) on my red marks.

Too early to comment on its ability to fade red patches but it seems to work well as a moisturizer and doesn't cause breakouts on my skin.

I'll keep you updated on my progress and wish me look.

Please note: the five star rating is purely for its moisturizing effect and has no relation to its potential to treat red marks/scars.

Doctor's advice...

After hearing a doctor's advice that Vaseline was brilliant treating scars, I decided to try and apply Vaseline topically on my pimples and acne scars. The results were good and I could tell the effect was good on the skin.

Works but be careful

Make sure you apply a moisturizer which is non comdegnic meaning no pore clogging.At night apply a very little amount on skin when you sleep an keep your pillow case clean

Shrinked my zits over Night.
Reviewed on July 22, 2016

So ever since I started my vacation in a country with a lot of hot weather, my face got a lot more oilie. I started to break out on my forehead and a bit also on my nose. I then started to try this by testing on my nose one night and then on my zits the next day. It then thankfully shrinked all my zits over night!

(I have combination skin btw)

They make this in a tube so I recommend that for sanitary purposes. I've used this over moisturizer on my face at night to trap moisture and people always think I look 10+ years younger than I am. I use it for eyes too (again over my eye cream)but because it is so thick you need to dab it on carefully and not drag it. keep a light hand and you'll look great.
