I've been using Vaseline on my skin most of my life, about once a week at night. I'm 46 and my skin is very soft with few lines.

I once went to a make up party where they soaked a cracker in baby oil, and put vaseline on a cracker. You would think that both owuld get soggy, but both remained perfectly crisp.
My Mom never used a thing on her face and at 77, has beautiful skin. Most of it is genetics and staying out of the sun.

I use Vaseline for makeup removal, when I can't find my regular remover... which is basically a liquified form of Vaseline.

I'm 36, avoid the sun, and I get carded for looking under 30 all the time. My sister (younger by 4 years) loves to tan - for over 10 years people have been mistaking her for the older sister, even her in-laws did at first and they knew the age difference!

I went to a dermatologist a couple of years ago having some red marks checked out and asked him about different aging creams/lotions and which he felt were really the best. He told me vaseline works just as well. I did read a story once about an old woman who looked very young and she did say she uses vaseline.

You know that age comes mostly from the sun and diet not the glop on your face right guys?

Sorry Honey, but you'd have to look under 21 to be carded. There are no restrictions for anybody anywhere for being under 30.

Where did you find that? The legal age to buy tobacco products is 18, and in some state, 19. Nowhere does it say you have to LOOK UNDER 27.

If there is doubt that a customer is under 18, card. Not 27.

i used to use vaseline on my face b/c it was really, really dry. i'd coat lotion on and then glob vaseline on. it worked like a charm. i still do that occassionally. but i definitely think all natural products are better.
