  • How Vaseline Saved My Life

  • Well, sort of. See, recently I wrote The Right Skin Care for Your Age, and one of the products the dermatologist I interviewed recommended for the 50s category was Vaseline. I found it refreshing to have a derm suggest a product that was under $5 -- it doesn't happen often.

  • But a few ladies in my office were shocked to see the recommendation. I got comments like "I would never put that on my face," "Won't it clog pores?" and "It's so cheap!" And though I wouldn't regularly apply Vaseline all over my combination skin because it could potentially clog my pores, I did use it when I was skiing last weekend. My face was red, chapped and stinging from the brisk snowy weather in the mountains so I went straight to the grocery store to pick up a small tub. I slathered it on my chapped face before bed and by morning the redness and stinging was gone. It works; it really does.

  • Anyone else have success with other budget-friendly products?

    • I use Lipsyl lip blam on my lips every night. They have never felt better for three dollars a tube I won't be changing any time soon.

    • I actually read in \"Oprah\" magazine a few months ago that hair conditioner works to remove eye make-up. Use only a small amount, maybe 1/2 teaspoon. Rub it on the eye lids and then wipe off. Very thrifty and you can also use it to condition your hair!

    • Vaseline is one of the best cheap products you could ever have in your bag that you take to the deserted island. It truly works wonders!
