AMAZING! I've got very fair, sensitive skin that's acne prone, and I've also got eczema. This product is a WINTER MUST for my skin. It's a little oily and definitely takes a minute to get used to, but it's saved my skin so many times it isn't even funny. Great for burns, rashes, itch, hives, eczema...you name it. It's moisturizing without clogging up my pores (of couse, I don't use it on my face) and it's got the texture of an ointment without being too heavy. Love it, and don't know where I'd be without it.
I bought this for my extremely dry face to use at night twice a week. It is very slow to absorb on the skin and can be a little inconvenient to use. I would definitely keep a jar in my bathroom at all times to combat the dryness but only to be used sparingly..
I have sensitive skin and I use a retinoid. I also recently moved, and the dryer/windier/colder climate really did not agree with my skin. Just walking in the coldish wind for 15 minutes made the dryish areas around my mouth and nose start to flake. I also got wind burned. My face hurt like hell after I washed it like I normally do, and even my trusty, thick Vanicream wasn't making the stinging go away. So I smeared some Aquaphor on the places that hurt the most and were flaky, and the relief was almost immediate. My skin was much healthier and plumper in the morning, with just the thinnest of flaky skin (I'm blaming the retinoid for that).
The price IS a bit steep, but I got the tube version when CVS was having some sort of sale, and it's gonna last forever. It's so emollient that even if you wanted to smear your whole face in this, it will still last you a god long while. Highly recommend. It's also wonderful for the lips and the corners of your mouth if they're chapped. :)
This is, in all honesty, amazing! I'm not gonna lie. I've been on Accutane for several months and my lips are extremely, EXTREMELY dry and flaky and chapped. They're just plain gross. I have been using SoftLips lip balm, Nivea, and Carmex during the day and at school, and while they're somewhat helpful, they don't come close to Aquaphor! I put it on when I get back from school, and before I go to sleep. It doesn't burn my lips, feel weird, and it is amazing at moisturizing. I didn't wanna have to carry this whole tube around (I have the big version). Now I found out that they sell it in lip gloss size. So I'm off to buy that! Faithful user. Believe me, it heals!
I love this stuff!! instant comfort for dry lips. Also my hands get extremely dry due to constantly washing my hands, and I slather it on my hands before I sleep. Much softer and younger looking hands. This is also a great product for when tattoos are in their healing period. Relieves the itch! Definite great product would buy again.
I wish there was a hell yes button when they ask me if I would repurchase.
I use this on my lips, mix it in with my night cream, pat it around my eyes, and rub this into my cuticles. I swear this could probably mend broken bones! Aquaphor has saved the day over and over again with my super chapped lips. I always buy the hygienic tube and stash it inside my purse for daily use. I got mine for 4.59 at my local target. What a steal!! I love you Aquaphor. You're the best and Vaseline ain't got nothin' on you girlfriend.
Update: This is still working wonders on my lips. They're always soft and I don't get as many peelies. When my lips are dry, this always helps me buff away the dead skin!
LOVE this stuff! I previously used it on my tattoo when it was in the "cracking and peeling" phase, after the tattoo artist recommended I do so. More recently, I had a horrible reaction on my lips that caused them to be very dry and had very tiny bumps on them. I tried everything. Burt's Bees, Blistex, Chapstick, Vaseline Lip Therapy, Neosporin Lip Therapy, etc, etc. None of those worked. I normally use Burt's Bees, but it just wasn't cutting it. I applied this, and LITERALLY within hours, my lips were already healing. This stuff is great!
its pretty much just like vaseline same results really. just buy vaseline....
I've been using this as my in-purse hand lotion for a while now. It's a bit on the pricy side, but I like that it's thick and just a little bit greasy-I hate how some lotions feel like you didn't put anything on like 2 minutes later. Another major plus is that it works GREAT as a lip balm, so it's super convenient. Would definitely buy again. I'd recommend this for people with dry skin who aren't looking for a light lotion. I imagine this would also be great for hands after washing dishes.
This stuff is awesome, you can use it for almost anywhere on your body & it really heals & protects dry skin. I keep a tube of this at home at at times. continued >>
