Vaseline has been around for 150 years because it a multitasking miracle cream but it is more than that.

It's not just meant to be used for burns, as a lip balm, as a diaper rash or only during harmattan, this iconic product that is everyone's favorite can be relied on for money and time saving tricks.

Instead of obsessing over the latest and greatest beauty products, read on to learn beauty hacks featuring petroleum jelly.

  1. Helps remove lash glue- Don't tug on those false lashes, it's bad for the delicate skin around your eyes. When dealing with some particularly stuck lash strips, smudge some Vaseline into your lash line with a cotton swab. Wait a few minutes and then carefully peel away.

  2. Aids earring insertion- If you don't wear earrings regularly, putting those studs in can be surprisingly painful. Rub your lobes with a little Vaseline beforehand for an easier time.

  3. Illuminates cheekbones- Instead of spending money on highlighters or illuminators to get the gorgeously glow-y look, dab a bit of Vaseline on your cheekbones for a dewy finish.

  4. Defines lashes- If you're more of a minimalist when it comes to beauty products or prefer a natural look, you can still get shiny, thicker-looking lashes without mascara. Vaseline applied to the area makes lashes look longer and more voluminous, and it's rumored to help them grow faster.

  5. Tames stubborn brows-  Even the best eyebrows can be destroyed by stubborn brows. You can tame them by dabbing the pad of your ring finger in the jar, rubbing both fingertips together to distribute the formula, and then smoothing it over your arches. For a sleeker, more defined look, follow by styling strands with a brow comb.

  6. Moisturizes the face-  Contrary to what you may think, Vaseline is noncomedogenic, making it OK for use as a face cream without worrying about clogged pores so, you can use Vaseline instead of using extra money on moisturizers.

  7. Works as a DIY lip scrub-  By mixing ordinary sugar with an eighth of a teaspoon of Vaseline, you can create an easy lip scrub for a super smooth lipstick canvas. If you're looking to exfoliate your whole body, use more Vaseline and sugar — the larger grains will be more effective on rough body skin.

  8. Gives a sun- kissed glow- In order to get a Victoria secret model's enviable glossy legs, mix some petroleum jelly with an old, cracked bronzer, and smooth it over your legs.

  9. Soothes dry cuticles- If you get gel manicures, you know that the removal process can be harsh. Use a pea-size amount of Vaseline for all 10 fingers to soften up and soothe your skin.
