Apollo Petroleum Jelly Review + uses of it

This is one product that i actually make sure that i always have with me, unbeknownst to some. This is a product that can be used on lots of ways! It doesn't have to be confined only in your toiletries but you ought to have a few small jars here & there within an arms reach.

I have tried different brands of petroleum jelly thinking that they are just all the same. I mostly just buy  the cheapest one! hahaha! But you know what? There's a difference in terms of consistency & texture of other petroleum jellies to Apollo. But they are still one & the same though. hehe

It's just that Apollo PJ is rather heavy & more greasy so it really stays on your skin for a longer period of time. I usually apply lotion on my feet, then after it had been fully absorbed, i put petroleum jelly then i cover it with socks overnight to wake up with beautifully soft feet!

With the cheap petroleum jelly, it would just be absorbed by the socks so i can even take the socks off for a few minutes & all the PJ will be gone!
tsk tsk tsk!

Apollo on the other hand lasts even until morning already. It's still there!
It really does the job of locking in moisture!

Well,i guess that is the main difference though, but it does matter. So with that out of the way, let's get into talking about petroleum jellies in general.

I mentioned before that you can use petroleum jelly for removing make-up, but there are still some uses of it that maybe not a lot people are actually aware of.  You can check out some of the uses here

And also some practical uses HERE as well. I'll just add some of the things that are not included here that i use PJ for.

As what i said before, i mostly use it soften my feet overnight. PJ is really good in locking in the moisture on your skin so if you want an overnight remedy for skin dryness you have to apply PJ on your skin right after bathing, preferably.

I use PJ to moisturize my cuticles.
Y'all know that i love nail arts & frequent exposure to polish remover/acetone dries out my cuticles so PJ helps make my cuticles & my fingers in general to look at its best. You will notice when i am gettin lazy in applying pj when my cuticles look dry.hehehe

Then i use PJ too when i am stamping images on my nails.
It helps make cleaning it really easy later on. I apply it around the nail area before stamping & it saves me time, effort & polish remover too during clean-up time. hihihi

How about you?
How do you use petroleum jellies?

If you haven't tried out PJs before, you ought to go & buy a jar for you.
It is an all around product, not just in beauty but even as a household item!

It's already March!
Summertime is here already.

Hope you all are having a great day!
Jaa ne~!

I used it as my lip balm. You see, I always use lip balms and tried different brands until I developed an allergy to them. Petroleum jelly saved my itchy lips then and my pocket too! ^_^

I usually use this as lip balm but since my feet are becoming a little bit rough, I might try your advice. :) Thanks for sharing.
