Aquaphor is a godsend! It has so many uses, it's just great. The healing ointment comes in either a jar with a screw-top lid and a squeeze tube (different sizes). I have used both. I prefer the squeeze tubes because I believe it's more sanitary. I was reccommended this by my doctor a few years back when I did an Accutane course (the medication dries your skin out greatly).
I use this primarily to hydrate my dry lips, but other times I will use it on dry patches that might appear on my face. It's a great formula; it absorbs well and hydrates accordingly.
Just a tip: if you really like the stuff, I suggest buying the mini squeeze tubes for on-the-go purposes! It's about the size of a lip gloss or chapstick. Great addition to your bag/tote! :)
I have the driest hands ever. EVER. I slather this all over my hands morning noon and night and it keeps them moisturized. Love it.
I received this in a swap. I love it. It heals quickly and being in a tube you don't have to dip your fingers in it. I really don't like having to dip my fingers into stuff. I will buy this stuff--in fact I may stock up on it in case it is discontinued.
This is an amazing product! I have extremely dry, flaky lips, and when I use Aquaphor, it totally combats the dryness. I use this before I go to bed.
I have seen this product used to heal burn patients its amazing
this is my little beauty secret. it has so many uses: for lips, dry spots on my face, nails, hands, feet, eyes. even though it is an ointment, i've used this as a night cream when my skin is feeling particularly flaky and dry (from retin-a), and i wake up with more moisturized skin. it does not cause breakouts or clogged pores. i probably use this the most for my eyes and lips. my eye area gets really dry after i cleanse, but this gets them moisturized in a pinch. i also feel like this "conditions" my eyelashes and it makes my mascara go on more smoothly, if that makes any sense. this may also be my favorite "lip balm". i put some on, then blot my lips to get some of the excess off so it's not too greasy, and my lips are so supple and soft.
the tub has more product in it, but it's more sanitary to get the tube. plus the tube is easier to squeeze the product out.
I use it after I wash my teeth on my lips and then put on lipstick. I like it instead of Vaseline.
I have extremely dry skin on my face & this product is a godsend. I reiterate what everyone else says, it somehow protects & moisturizes without clogging pores or causing breakouts. I also buy the "baby" packaged version because it is cheaper. When I first heard about using Aquaphor on my face to heal dry winter skin, I looked at the ingredients and thought, mineral oil? ceresin? lanolin alcohol? glycerin? bisabolol? Why on earth would I put a product on my face that has all that extra junk in it when I can just put straight petrolatum (vaseline) on it? I thought I was being so darn smart. Well, vaseline clogged my pores & broke me out. There's something weird about Aquaphor & its mysterious extra ingredients that makes it better. Serves me right for thinking I know better when I don't.
Genius. This product is indispensable. I have used it for a variety of reasons to name a few: on my face after chemical peels, if Retin A dries out my skin in the winter, on my lips when chapped - or just as lip gloss, in my nose and lips when running in the winter to prevent chapping and on my hands and feet when they get dry. I just put it on at night and in the morning everything is better. This stuff has magical healing powers. I have containers all over the place. Don't be scared to use it on your face, I am acne prone but rub it straight on there. Its never broken me out. It feels greasy at first but then it just sinks in and does its thing. It's slightly pricey for something purchased from a drug store but a container lasts forever. A little goes a long way. A+
Got this for my new tattoo. It works really well. I started applying it on my hands, elbows and knees before I go to sleep at night, and it has made a huge difference for my super dry skin. Love this item!
