Look what I just got:
Yup, pure Vaseline in a tube. Can you believe that tiny tube costs me almost 50 cents here? Back in the States, you can get a jar of Vaseline the size of a jumbo tron for a dollar. This is highway robbery, yo! Maybe the global energy crisis has to do with the rising price of Vaseline after all. I really do not know for sure but that's my educated guess.
But what am I going to do with it?
Can you guess?
I'm going to make lip gloss with it! Nope, it's not the type of "lip gloss" where you mix your Vaseline with whatever colorant and call it a day. What I am going to do is to melt it down and mix it with oil to create a clear liquid lip gloss. You can't believe how difficult it is to find a clear gloss here. It's impossible! I've been finding high and low for it but all I see are colored glosses with shimmer, glitter, scents, and the like. Really pretty and expensive ones and they are not even in the high-end arena. Nope, I'm not talking about Lancome, Chanel, Dior, or even Estee Lauder here. These glosses I found are probably in the rank of ELF, NYC, and Wet n Wild in the States and they cost an arm and a leg already.
Before you decide to preach me on the harmful effects of using Vaseline, let me tell you that I know all about it. I could have gone the good way but I don't have beeswax. Except for the wax on the white candles. Which probably sounds gross for me to scrape it and use to make lip gloss. Ew!
With Vaseline, I don't need wax. All I need are oil and aloe vera gel, which I can find. I'll probably need more Vaseline to run my experiment and I'll let you know how it goes.
That's all for now, folks! Have a lovely glossy-licious day!
