Huge Improvement!

A few days ago I went on vacation which totally threw me off my normal routine. This resulted in numerous patches of acne on my skin. As I was using drying treatments to cure the acne quickly, I made my skin worse. Last night I applied vaseline over all of the acne scars and this morning i woke up with moisturized skin and also some of the places are peeling. I highly recommend using this for a quick fix! I go to the beach in two days and this is a lifesaver!

Clear skin!

I am allergic to stearate. That being said, I am allergic to most chemical products, especially creams. After suffering from another allergic bout from a moisturizing cream, I decided to stick to Vaseline. I have combination skin: oily T-zone and chin, dry cheeks. After using Vaseline for a few days, all my pimples healed up. I haven't gotten a single pimple in weeks. It might be because I have finally steered clear of stearate, but Vasline helps my skin to renew itself.

I put this on my skin overnight because my face was drying out and my mom recommended it to me and my acne was 95% gone when i wook up!

This is how you use it so you wont break out/you wont put too much on:

1.) clean your skin before

2.) run some hot water

3.)get some vaseline around the size of a quarter

4.) run it under the hot water and rub your hands together to mix it until its paste like

5.) put it on!

I started using vaseline a couple months ago after my dermatologist suggested I use it on a mole I had removed. He stated it is better to use vaseline than an antibacterial gel as the wound would heal better.

I've always had moderate acne and mainly on my chin due to dry skin. My forehead has always been greasy. I decided to stop using my acne medication and try vaseline. I put a thin layer all over my face and slept with it on over night. It's difficult to sleep with as it can leave grease all over your pillow but at least it doesn't stain fabric like BP. The next day my acne was dramatically reduced and the redness subsided a ton. I decided to keep up with it and I can say my face is perfectly clear and all in about over a weeks time. I even had family members say that I look photoshopped, which I take as a great compliment.

Give it a try, it doesn't cause acne due to it is non-comedogenic. I just wash my face before putting it on and once a week I give my face a nice scrub with a facial exfoliator.

Okay people only dry skinned peeps can put this on all of their faces, Teens like me cant. Just put it on red pimples and only on the pimple or you will get more. Put it on lips and after ten minutes wipe with wash cloth slowly and put on eyelashes for longer eyelashes. I know this is a acne website but I needed to do that. If you get it on your acne free parts WARNING: WASH IT OFF put it on crusty or red or cyst pimples four because it broke me out when I put it on wrong

Occasionally I get super red flaky skin on the skin under my eyes. I use Vaseline on my dry skin overnight and by morning it's literally gone! I use this regularly during winter too to prevent more dry skin. It's inexpensive and I love it.

Works well as a moisturizer (it's been said that Marilyn Monroe actually smeared vaseline all over her face when getting ready in the morning), however can cause breakouts if you tend to have very oily skin, but overall is great if you need a quick fix for extremely dry skin

I have acne due to very dry skin (esp. in winter) and PCOS related hormonal imbalances.

Acne washes & creams dry acne, but also overdried my skin. Skin flakes were making my acne worse.

This product worked very well to remedy my dried skin, & I have not had an issue with it clogging my pores.

Other moisturizers produced a rash & allergic reaction, or simply did not work.

It is best used after washing my face & slept in, sometimes paired with pure olive oil


FYI Tyra Banks & Marylin Monroe use/d this for their skin as well.
