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.
Like everyone else I love this product, especially for my lips. I work in a heavily air conditioned place must always wear lipstick at work, so my lips have been very very dry. I even had to see a doctor who gave me some ointment with steroids in it to try to fix my always chapped lips. But after a while I could not keep using the steroid ointment so I turned to Aquaphor and now I will never go back to any other lip balms! My mom and I also get dry on the inside of our noses to the point where it bleeds and after putting some Aquaphor in, they are all gone! My mom also loves it on her dry cracked feet. This is a wonderful product!
I saw this on the shelf at SDM, remembered the MUA rave reviews, so I picked it up. I was looking for something to help my terribly dry lips but honestly, I didn't really expect much. I've tried tons of balms, lotions, etc, but nothing has really helped. However, in this case, MUA did not steer me wrong! When I initially put it on, I thought "mnah, it's just a vamped up version of vaseline". I've tried Vaseline on my lips, hands, etc, and it does nothing for me. This..this was different! Within a few hours I could actually feel and see my lips becoming more soft and supple (and supple is NOT a word I have ever used to describe my lips). I haven't tried it on my face yet but am going to give it a shot. I don't know what it is, but this stuff works!
Its no surprise to me that this has raving reviews.
I always need to have 2 tubes at a time, 1 for my room & the other for my purse.
Seriously cant be without it, especially during the cold/windy seasons. Other lip balms (wont say names) that claim to have healing & moisture power are a load of crap! All most balms do for me is jus coat & leave my lips feeling worst.
But not this stuff, this saves my lips as soon as i apply it. I also use it on my eyelids when they start getting a little dry & irritated, as well as hand knuckles bc i wash my hands alot.
Aquaphor has so many uses to it, the most common one i hear from people is that its good to soothe fresh tattoos, which i wouldnt kno from experience since i dont have any, but i believe it.
I would use it as a face moisterizer if i wasnt paranoid about it breaking me out, but i have other creams, Rosewater/Glycerin that keep my face dry free.
I can go on and on here, but ill let the rest of you express the benefits of this marvelous product! (:
