No. 6: Vaseline Pure Petroleum Jelly, $4.49TotalBeauty.com average reader rating: 9.1*
Why: Readers say, "everyone should have this in her beauty routine. [It] works better than any Chapstick, it even looks good as a basic gloss, using your lips natural color. I've even slathered it on my face and slept with it on, (put a towel over your pillow case!!) when my face was particularly dry. When I washed it off in the morning my skin was amazingly soft and gorgeous." Another reader shares the many ways she uses the jelly: "This is everything. I use it for chapped lips, dry elbows, cracked feet. When my hands are particularly dry in the winter time, I just mix in a dab of Vaseline with my body lotion and massage my hands. And the BEST thing to do -- put Vaseline all over your feet, particularly the dry heels, then pull on some socks." One reader ranks this as her number one product saying, "This is my 'if you could have one beauty product on a desert island'. Vaseline can be used anywhere on the body as a moisturizer, it removes makeup and can be used as lip gloss. "
