Vaseline, paraffin (petroleum jelly)

I am very picky about what goes to my skin after I had a bad date with PG & PEG. So I am wondering what are the effects of vaseline and paraffin on skin? Do they dry out or not? What would they do to my oily skin over short-duration usage (1 week)?

i used to use vaseline as a moisturizer when my skin was really dry. i was trying to ease into a new regimen and i used it for almost a month. it didn't break me out or dry out my skin, but it did feel heavy. i had to blot after applying it because of its sheen.

Same as the OP said ^

I just use the Vaseline Intensive moisturiser now though, cuz it doesnt break me out n you get all the positive effects of paraffin/vaseline minus the greasy look.
