Love this product for my hands, lips, elbows, and feet! Nothing beats it! In my opinion, MUCH better than Vaseline. It's a god-send for my hands and cuticles in the winter. I keep a jar in my desk, night-stand beside my bed, and a tube in my purse at all times. A little goes a long way and it does take a few minutes to absorb into the skin. I like that it is fragrance free, no-nonsense, very few ingredients, but very effective. It is a bit pricey, however, it does last forever. It even does a fantastic job of smoothing down the dry, frizzy ends of my hair and eliminating static. After I use this on my hands, I lightly rub my hands over my hair and it does the trick!
Great multi-purpose, winter staple to have on hand!
A coworker turned me on to Aquaphor last year to help with the cracked soles of my feet. There has been no looking back! This is the best deep moisturizer there is and I use it all the time on my feet. I also use it on my elbows, upper arms and hands and in particular the cuticles. I did not realize you can use it on your face too. Hmmm. The one comment I would make is that if you are going to put on your feet then put socks on immediately afterwards. This stuff is thick and takes awhile to absorb. If you walk around without socks you will make big greasy tracks all over your floor (learned this the hard way!).
An absolute staple! The greatest thing ever for my perpetually dry skin. I use it all over my face, including lips and eye area, and my skin is so comfy! Its lack of fragrance is a HUGE bonus.
I use this on elbows, feet, hands, cuticles, and fine lines. my dermatologist says it is better than vaseline due to the lanolin in it. great stuff!
In the UK look for this marketed at Eucerin - Aquaphor- Soothing Skin Balm (but the packaging is very similar to the US version).
This is my new replacement for 8 hour cream I reckon! I only bought it because of the rave reviews on here, but I'm glad I did. I currently have a cold and am using this instead of my usual 8 hour cream around my nose and lips - it's far less sticky. This is also fragrance free. It works a treat on my awful dry cuticles too, though it takes a while to sink in on my hands so it's more of a night time treatment (and what a great treatment it is!!)
Good for the lips too, as a balm.
I get dry elbows and this is by far the best thing I've used. God I love this stuff. It's about £8 in the UK (why is everything more expensive here?!?!) but an essential purchase.
I love this stuff, I originally bought it for my son's skin, but decided to use it also. Someone told me to try it under my eyes, and yes I was hesitant about putting THIS STUFF under my eyes. But in short, I love it as an under eye treatment. The research I have found all says its not good for your eyes as it is for external use but I am careful with it around my eyes, it just works way better than expensive stuff I have tried. People say it does not work, but fail to realize everyone's skin is different, it didn't work for them but I can visibly see the difference around my eyes, so i just keep it as an under eye treatment cause the creams don't work, but that's just me
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. First off, I am on accutane at the moment and one of the major side effects is dry lips. My derm gave me a pot of Aquaphor (I have no idea if they actually sell it in my country) and it has been AMAZING. Its easy to apply, really soothing and most importantly - incredibly moisturizing.
Because of my extreme dry lips I apply Aquaphor at morning, night and after eating or drinking. I find it keeps your lips moist far better than just Vaseline or lip balm, and my lips peel only a tiny bit overnight instead of cracking up horribly. Definitely going to keep this near me at all times during my Accutane treatment!
Best all purpose ointment I have used. Not a big fan of petroleum but this stuff works.
I have horrible cuticles and this helps with the dryness and cracking. Great for my feet, hands, lips and other dry areas of my skin. Perfect for "winter itch".
Its really thick so I mix it in with some of my regular lotion if I need to spread it on large areas.
I bought this on a whim a few years ago. I love this stuff. I have the driest, most sensitive skin and this really helps. I use on my hands, feet, lips, elbows and any rough or irritated patches. This winter my lips started cracking even after religiously using a super moisturizing balm and my hands especially my cuticles and the tips of my fingers were cracking even after applying a heavy lotion all day. I apply this before bed and showering and as needed throughout the day. My lips and hands are back to normal. I have even found the tiniest dab will work to tame my frizzy, dry curly hair. I always have a tube of this in my purse now and one by my bed.
I like to use this for my feet, lips, and nose. I don't really find it moisturizing, but it's protective enough to prevent further drying/chapping of the skin. It sinks into the skin pretty quickly, and it never feels super greasy. I hate the packaging because the lid always breaks on my tubes, and the tub is just a little gross to me. Otherwise it's a good product.
