Study: British Women Can't Do Without Vaseline Lip Balm
Posted on January 3, 2009The Telegraph reports that a British survey of 2,000 women found that Vaseline lip therapy is the beauty product women most need. The study tried to find which beauty products women couldn't do without, whatever the cost.
Vaseline lip therapy isn't an expensive product and can usually be found for less than $2. In the U.S. it comes in a small tube and on the UK drugstore websites it looks like it comes in a small circular tin.Jeff Wemyss, Superdrug Trading Director: "When asked what women couldn't do without, whatever the cost, it's Vaseline that came out top.
"The little tin of soothing salve not only protects skin from the effects of weather and exposure, it also acts like a sealant to protect the natural water loss of our skin and is a staple handbag item for women across the nation.
"None of the items in the top ten are necessarily luxury items, just reliable, timeless, products which have earned their place as essential beauty basics over the years."
