Thick, lucious brows are in trend but not many of us are lucky enough to be blessed with Lily Collins brows. Castor oil, coconut oil, argan oil, you’ve probably tried it all and many have seen great results. But have you tried Vaseline on your brows before? Many claim that among the many hair growth products, Vaseline is one of the best.

Let’s be honest, we were all a little skeptical at first. Does it really work? They surely weren’t made for brow growth. Vaseline or petroleum jelly is usually purchased to moisturise your lips or dry patches on your skin when worn as a mask. Some may even use them for the TikTok skincare trend, slugging. The question is, does it really work to assist in growing some bushy brows? Read on to find out as Beauty Insider uncovers the truth.

Does Vaseline Really Work?

The truth is that Vaseline might not be an option for eyebrow or eyelash growth. It does give the illusion of thicker brows and lashes because of its texture that sticks the hairs together to create the look of thicker brows. However, there isn’t really anything in the ingredients that proves it can help generate new hair growth or hair thickness. It does work great as a brow styling gel though!

The interesting fact about Vaseline is that it can be used as a conditioner for your brows which will help maintain the health of the hair, hence making it seem that hair is growing, but really its your natural eyebrow hairs and eyelashes growing healthier.

What happens who you use Vaseline on your brows?

It’s important to be careful when using any product around the eye area because it is afterall, the thinnest skin on your body. This makes it more sensitive than the rest of your skin. The thickness and greasiness of petroleum jelly can actually cause millia seeds to appear near your eyes especially when your skin is prone to milia. They can be quite tough to remove.

What are other uses of Vaseline?

Vaseline is actually one of the first petroleum jelly products in the world. It was first created in the 1870s and have grown to be a favourite of many since then. There are many uses of Vaseline, the most common one being to moisturise your lips. Dermatologists love this product and recommend everyone having at least one small tub of Vaseline at home. They can help soothe burns, heal scars, treat skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis, and even moisturise dry patches such as on your knees and elbows. Dermatologists have talked about its use for the purpose of slugging. Check out what Dr. Ingky has to say about it here.
