    No, vaseline holds in moisture, it does not provide it, (so I have been told).

    Vaseline isn't a moisturiser. It's a barrier to the environment, rather than a product that provides moisture. Aveeno is a good moisturising cream, though

    I hate Vaseline. I had an accident when I was younger which led to me having 3rd degree burns up my arms and 2nd degree burns to my face. I was told to never use Vaseline as it's not a moisturiser! Best thing for my lips (I always have to have a lip balm with me) is Burt's Bees lip balm. For my body, E45 cream or Aveeno body lotion is fab as they actually sink into your skin instead of sitting on top like most brands which wash off in the shower!

    Apparently, Vaseline doesn't actually moisturise, but instead locks in moisture. In the past, when moisturising my hands overnight, I've put moisturising cream then Vaseline on x

    What are you trying to moisturise anyway? There are different products for different skin areas.
    If it's general body moisturising you need, try palmers cocoa butter. It's excellent. But aveeno is great too.
