It sounds like you are healing. But I would urge you to stay away from the vaseline. FAR away. If you need to temprorarily moisturize in order to take off some skin, just use warm water (my preference) or olive oil or coconut oil. Vaseline is sooo bad for the skin (in my opinion.) Gradually the raw skin will be less and less raw with each peeling cycle. At least, this was the case with me.
