Brand Overview: Waxelene

This past 4th of July, I decided to do a water marble design which meant I needed to protect my skin from getting polish all over it. In my normal fashion, I used store brand petroleum jelly.

I don't mind petroleum jelly for the most part but I do wished it rubbed better into my skin afterwards instead of feeling slimy.

Waxelene is the eco-friendly alternative to petroleum jelly!  It has the same protective, waterproofing, moisturizing and soothing properties that doctors love, but contains no petroleum or hydrogenated oils. Waxelene’s ingredients include natural beeswax and oils like vitamin E and organic rosemary which soak in and nurture skin cells. Waxelene’s patent-pending aeration process gives it a silky smooth texture that won’t clog pores. Committed to the environment and healthy living, the makers of Waxelene endeavor to become more sustainable every day. From using natural and organic ingredients, to packaging in recyclable jars and tubes, and to implementing energy-efficient practices, Waxelene is striving to do its part to prepare for a petroleum-free future.

You can purchase it on their website or stores like Whole Foods, Sprouts, cvs/Pharmacy and Bed Bath & Beyond. They are cruelty free as well.You can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter for more information.


  1. I always use petroleum jelly, but I think every (water free/no emulsion) fat can be used.I'm actually wanting tontry a soft pink lipgloss I don't like...XD

    I don't find my fingers that slimy or greasy afterwards... hmm.
    First I scrape the grease and polish with a wooden stick off.
    When everything is dry-ish, I wipe the remains into a tissue.

    But everybody's skin and preferences are different. I just would rather look for an alternative in the house, before buying something new, but that's me, since I find these things a challenge :-)
    Thanks for showing anyway! :-)))

  2. Yeah, vaseline ks greasy, and it doesn't get absorbed by the skin. I tried some white craft glue once, but it was water soluble and no, it didnt just dissolve, but it stuck my fingers together in the water, since I marble my fingers generally more than one at a time... Im thinking of using one of the lipglosses I don't like wearing... lets see ^^

  3. Ok, you'll find it on my blog, too, just in case I forget ;-)
    But I think lipgloss should work fine, plus you can see where you have covered and where not.

    Just don't use a stainer ;-)
