I recently received a jar of Waxelene in the mail to review, and I'll admit I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Here is the product description:
Waxelene - The Petroleum Jelly Alternative. Made of Organic Soy Oil, Beeswax, Organic Rosemary Oil, and Natural Vitamin E (from soybeans). That's it, no petroleum or artificial ingredients. 2oz size glass jar.When I first heard about this review/giveaway opportunity on Mom Blog Society and saw that description, I was very interested because I don't like petroleum jelly-based products, but I do like natural products. I'm glad I was selected for this review because I've found a new favorite product!
I love the cute little bumblebee on the jar! I knew that this was beeswax based, and I expected it to be, well, waxy in texture. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not. Once I tried it, though, I realized that it was completely different than I had imagined. Turns out, the consistency reminded me most of a body butter. It's a very thick, creamy, and potent moisturizer. Waxelene has many uses: to remove makeup, to moisturize all over, to tame flyaways in your hair...I first tried using this to remove my eye makeup, but then decided to use it as a body butter for my dry ankles and elbows.
I love the consistency of this product! The jar I received contained 2 oz of product, which I know will last me a while because a little goes a long way. It works so much better than petroleum jelly and is so much better for you (in my opinion), too. There are only four ingredients, which are listed above in the product description. A 2 oz jar costs $6.99 and a 9 oz jar will cost you $15.99; you can purchase some online at the Waxelene website (linked below), or at various shops and Whole Foods markets.
