Waxelene, the petroleum jelly alternative, should be in your medicine cabinet!

Consider the fact that every time we lick our Chapstick-coated lips, we're ingesting a little bit of petroleum--not an ideal situation, by any means. Same for Vaseline, Chanel lipstick, or any of our favourite brands of lip coverings. Well, change has arrived, packaged in a delightful glass jar and available at select Whole Foods. Waxelene is your petroleum-jelly alternative, made with natural and organic ingredients, like beeswax, non-GMO soybean oil and natural Vitamin E, to soothe and protect lips, elbows, knees, heels and cuticles! I was fortunate enough to try a sample of Waxelene and I was pleased to find that it has a creamier, lighter texture than other petroleum-jelly substitutes, and a more delicate scent, to boot. I, with my acne-prone skin, would even venture to use it on my face in the depths of winter when no humidifier is able to counteract that parched-skin-effect. Trust the bees, they know what they're doing! A 2oz. jar is $6.99 from Waxelene.
