Heyy, here goes my first beauty-related post in absolutely ages! Quite a short one today, but the next ones will be longer as my camera will be charged up and I can take as many photos of as many different things as I want! But anyway, all I'm posting about today is a product that (according to two different magazines) Jennifer Aniston uses under her eyes that is both ridiculously cheap and used for loads of other things too - Vaseline :O!
Apparently Jennifer puts 1/4 of a tablespoon of Vaseline under her eyes every night to keep them moisturised and also to prevent wrinkles. As much as I love Jennifer Aniston (she's my favourite in Friends :) ), I still find it quite hard to believe that with all her money and how good shes looks for 40+ that she relies solely on a £2 pot of Vaseline to take care of her eyes! I'm sure there MUST be something else involved, but there is no doubt that this cheap little product is an all round budget wonder. I have always had some of this in my make up bag, it is of course great for keeping your lips soft and moisturised, I've been known to use a tiny bit of it as a highlighter on my cheeks when my skin looks dull, and I even put some on my eyebrows just before I pluck them because for some reason it seems to make it easier and less painful. Since reading about Jennifer Aniston's Vaseline secret, I did buy myself this rather too big pot from Boots, even though I had to suffer my boyfriend's unfunny jokes about it (you can imagine..), and I have been using some under my eyes every night. I know I hopefully have any wrinkles yet but there's no harm in taking precautions anyway! If nothing else, my eye area if really soft in the morning and looks brighter, although this doesn't count for the rest of your face because if you put it anyway else it just looks greasy and may cause a breakout!
