Clere Pure Petroleum Jelly – your must-have winter skin saver

As the body’s largest organ, it’s so important to take good care of your skin. However, doing so doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank, says Clere brand manager Su-Marie Annandale. “In fact, a common, inexpensive product found in most people’s medicine cabinets, petroleum jelly, can have multiple skin care uses for the entire family.”

Hydrate your lips

Prevent chapped lips or soothe sad ones by applying a thin layer of Clere Pure Petroleum Jelly to your lips day and night. Petroleum jelly moisturises and hydrates, while leaving lips with the perfect natural-looking shine.

Moisturise dry hands and cracked heels

Dry hands and feet are the worst — they’re embarrassing, painful, and dry skin totally puts a damper on freshly painted nails. Plus, winter is here, which means your skin will be needing all the moisture it can get. Apply a generous amount of petroleum jelly to your hands and feet at night and cover them up with socks or gloves. You’ll wake up in the morning to find noticeably softer skin.

Brow taming

Skip the overpriced and under promising brow gel, and tame unruliness with a dab of petroleum jelly instead. Lightly coat a brow wand in the jelly and comb brows in place.

Keep fingers and cuticles clean while painting nails

Not all of us are master manicurists, it’s true, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend. Get perfectly painted nails without the worry of getting polish all over by simply applying a thin coat of petroleum jelly (use a Q-Tip or cotton bud) around your finger nails and cuticles. The jelly will not only moisturise your cuticles, but it will more importantly act as a barrier to keep sneaky polish from attaching itself where it’s not welcome. Just be sure not to get any petroleum jelly on your fingernails, or else it will do the same thing!

Make a base for DIY exfoliators

Mix some sugar or salt with Clere Pure Petroleum Jelly for an amazing exfoliator for your body or, apply a layer to your lips to gently buff away dead skin cells. Use a soft toothbrush, sweeping in circular motions, for unbelievably smooth lips.

Longer and thicker eyelashes

This is an unbelievable miracle of petroleum jelly. Apply some Clere Pure Petroleum Jelly onto your eyelashes every night before going to bed and you’ll notice longer, and much thicker eyelashes within a couple of weeks.

Get a dewy glow

Apply a tiny amount of petroleum jelly with your fingertips to the top of your cheek and brow bones for a fresh, dewy look. Just remember, a little goes a long way, so don’t go overboard.


Smooth fly aways and pesky split ends

Make split ends and flyaway hairs magically disappear with a light coating of petroleum jelly. Once again, a little goes a very long way, so get a super small amount on your fingers and wipe those rogue hairs back into place.

Face moisturiser

Clere Pure Petroleum Jelly is noncomedogenic, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, non-sensational, and has no added fragrance or colours, making it the perfect face moisturiser. Apply Clere Pure Petroleum Jelly on your whole face every night before bed. You’ll notice the visible difference in moisture and smoothness in your face.

Make-up remover

Did you know you can use Clere Pure Petroleum Jelly to wipe the day away? Petroleum jelly is a better make-up removing option. Some make-up removers, or baby oils, contain ingredients that may irritate the eyes. Petroleum jelly is very mild and safe to use.

Everlasting fragrance

It’s disappointing when your favourite perfume scent constantly fades away. But with the help of petroleum jelly, you can make the scent last. Dab some on your pulse points and your neck before you spritz, and the scent will last for the entire day.
