Deven Hopp

We like to think of Vaseline as the OG moisturizer. It dates back to 1865 when Robert Cheseborough patented the petroleum jelly formula to heal dry skin. Its thick consistency really does work wonders on our skin, especially when it gets super cold out. But since its invention, we've found so many other Vaseline uses that don't just pertain to skincare.

We've rounded up 15 to be exact.
