My Little Pink Tin...

Petroleum Balm is often referred to (in the UK) by the trade name Vaseline. Vaseline, is a brand (owned by Unilever) & the product itself is called Petroleum Balm or Petroleum Jelly.

Petroleum Jelly is a semi-solid mix of hydrocarbons 
which are obtained from Petroleum.

There are a number of different brands which offer Petroleum Jelly, I use Superdrug's little pink tin & I have previously used their little green tin. Unlike Unilever's Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline), Superdrug do not test on animals, are BUAV approved & are considerably cheaper.

Superdrug offer 4 little tins
the little blue tin - original
the little green tin - alo vera
the little pink tin - spf15
the little red tin - strawberry

So what can we use it for?

I haven't tried all of these, however I highly recommend carrying one of these little tins in your hand/cosmetics bag because you never know when you might need it... A point to remember is not to cross contaminate, unless in an emergency, because obviously bodies carry bugs.
