Default Does vaseline on your face even work?

I can't remember a single time I was in the ring and thought "Damn that punch slipped right off my face."

I don't think you cut much with headgear on.

Does grease reduce friction?

It helps with avoiding abrasions. That's all it's supposed to do.

You get a pair of new gloves, or a particularly dried-out pair, and they can blotch someone up pretty badly if there's no vaseline. Doesn't lessen the impact of a solid punch.

I have a naturally greasy face. Great for boxing. Sucks for the other 90% of the day.
