When looking for intensive care for your lips primarily for overnight use, Vaseline is often sought for as a cure for severely chapped lips. Unlike many of the other popular lip balms, this tube only contains two ingredients – white petroleum and flavor. What’s noticeably absent from this balm is the use of moisturizing agents like a butter or carrier oil and also any sort of protectants like beeswax. According to the Vaseline site, petroleum jelly is essentially a hybrid between both mineral oils and natural waxes – therefore this ingredient has dual uses. While some may be on the fence about the flavor of this jelly, there is no doubting its effectiveness – theres a reason why men and women have been using this stuff for more than 150 years!
