I can't believe I did, but I did it. I've actually replaced Vaseline as one of my essential beauty products. I mean who doesn't use Vaseline? I've used it for everything from chapped lips to makeup remover. It was just one of those things you knew you'd always use. Until now.
Enter Waxelene. Waxelene touts itself as the "petroleum jelly alternative". Who knew there was such a thing and where did it come from? Surprisingly enough Waxelene was created by two men Todd Cooper & Ejyo Remington.
After researching petroleum jelly and skin care, they were determined to make something with the highest quality organic and natural ingredients available. It needed to be as sustainable as possible while still being affordable for everyone. After hundreds of scientific tests in the kitchen using every empty jar in the neighborhood, they came up with Waxelene.
Waxelene is the first product that creates a waterproof barrier that is breathable. It contains no petroleum and is made of only natural and organic ingredients. The revolutionary patented aeration process creates a smooth and silky consistency without having to use hydrogenated oils (trans-fats), petroleum or other chemicals. It's made of only Beeswax and the finest quality natural plant-based oils.
After trying Waxelene I found it to be much different and better than Vaseline. For one, it smells a heck of a lot better. When removing my makeup, it doesn't seem to clog my pores and leave a heavy layer of grease. For chapped lips its silky smooth and stays on for hours. It's phenemonal as a cuticle protector.
Waxelene comes in a jar and a squeeze tube, and a lip tube is in the works. A little goes a long way, and the product really lasts. For under $7, it's definitely a 2014 beauty essential. You can pick yours up at Whole Foods, CVS, and even amazon.com.
