The surprising beauty product celebs swear by
At bh, we’re used to reading about the OTT beauty regimes of celebrities (Gwyneth Paltrow’s punishing facial treatment comes to mind).
So we were surprised and delighted to learn about the latest, more attainable beauty product three stunning stars swear by.
I’ll give you three clues:
1. It’s been around since 1859.
2. It’s available from Priceline and most pharmacies nationally.
3. It’s practically the definition of a ‘multi-use product’.
Drumroll please… it’s Vaseline Petroleum Jelly! Yep, one of my favourite budget buys is also a must-have for Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lopez.
According to The Daily Mail, Aniston applies it under her eyes every night to help lock in moisture and prevent wrinkles, while Lopez uses it to remove make-up (it’s never occurred to me to do this, but I will be trying it tonight!).
And Queen Bey? Well, rounding off her other favourite products, she’s said to rub the gentle jelly on her teeth to protect them from stains, as well as on her eyelashes to help them hold their curl and look shiny.
So it’s official. With countless other uses including as a treatment for nappy rash, chafing, sore lips, minor burns, dry hands and rough feet, this chemist classic really is a beauty wonder.
And at less than $3 for a 50-gram pot, you can afford to slather it on (leaving you with more cash to spend on fun beauty products like pretty purple eyeshadow).
Do you use Vaseline in your beauty regime? What other budget beauty buys do you swear by?
