Last May, I did a post about my skin care. I don’t really do a lot, just use soap and moisturizer. Anyway, a few weeks ago I switched moisturizers and it killed my face. I used a moisturizer I’ve used in that past, but, this time, it was too much for my skin. When I put it on it felt like my face was burning off. Not good. I kept using it for a few days, but it continued to hurt my face and I started to break-out a little. I decided to get new moisturizer.
Before I went to the store, I saw a pin about Vaseline on Pinterest. The pin said something about Vaseline being a great moisturizer for your hands, face and lips and that it’s not pore clogging. I realize this could totally be made-up and posted on Pinterest to really f*ck with people, but I decided to test it out anyway. I bought a bucket of this stuff:
Of course, I’m too cheap to buy real Vaseline so I bought petroleum jelly. And I’ve been using it every night for the last week or so. So far I’ve had no break-outs and my skin feels great. I continue to wash my face morning and night with Dove soap and I only wear the petroleum jelly at night.
As you might imagine, the petroleum jelly makes my face (and neck) look a little glossy…
And it’s also a little sticky, but I got used to that pretty quickly. My face feels so much better now! I have yet to get screwed over by a Pinterest find. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time, though.
Tonight, I’m going to a glow-stick Zumba event with G. This will be our first Zumba class together so it should be interesting. I just made him practice his gyrating and I almost died laughing. Also, I’m wondering if I need to pick up some ecstasy on the way (isn’t that what you take when you’re dancing with glow sticks?). I’ve never been a party-girl, so I’m not sure wtf happens at these sorts of things…but I always like to be prepared.
HOPE YOU’RE HAVING AN INCREDIBLE SATURDAY!
