Love this stuff!!! Works wonderfully on extremely dry patches of skin that I get on my hands and feet! Way better than vaseline IMO!
I, too, love this product. When I first purchased it I wasn't sure exactly what to do with it - but I now use it freely at night on my face after I have applied my nightime moisturizers. I especially like to use it around my mouth and eyes. Not only does it seem to help hold in the product I have just put on my face, it also seems to moisturize and makes my face look and feel great in the morning. I think you could use this product anywhere - face, hands, elbows, feet - at night to soften your skin. I also use vaseline but this product seems less likely to clog pores on my face...so that is primarily where I use it. Also, since I have to order it on line I am a little greedy with it. Next time I purchase it I will buy more than one tube, I know that. Good product and I want to throw out a thank you - as others have - to Kandee Johnson. She provides great basic make up advice with a heart.
Great night cream. I was as first hesitant about putting such a greasy product on my face overnight, but it really does do wonders! Also its not petroleum, so you won't have to worry about clogged pores. After I wash my face i use a 10% AHA and then lac-hydrin five and then this. You will wake up to baby soft skin. I recently stopped using BP and have not regretted it one minute. I think it was a little harsh for my skin. Being gentle and hydrating has worked wonders. Also, as many have read on this board..include vitamin d3, and zinc in your vitamin arsenal and it will really improve your skin. Love this product!
Edit!! I really loved the way this felt on my skin, however after using it for a month, I started to breakout and develop dry patches on my face. Come to find out, I think I have seborrheic dermatitis on my face, as I have all the classic signs..sensitive to all botanicals and natural oils/ dry areas around nose and mouth and between brows. This has coconut oil which totally destroyed me! Mineral oil and petrolatum are my friend, and I have pretty much been bathing in mineral oil with wonderful results. Just because a product is natural, doesn't mean it will work for everyone..I found this out with this product. Seb derm girls..avoid all natural oils and you will most likely see positive results! Also have been slathering on Amlactin on my face morning and night and my skin loves it!
So far I am enjoying this product. I heard about it from a make-up artist on You Tube how she uses it to seal in moisture over night. It does feel pretty luxurious and like is sealing and protecting my face. I love the natural ingredients and it can be used to take of eye make-up - it was even more effective than my clinique eye makeup remover! This is a multi-purpose beauty tool.
This product is awesome. It's totally replaced my addiction to petroleum jelly for chapped lips and more.
I started using it under my eyes as an extra boost. My under eye area was really dry and I can see an improvement after just a few weeks. Thanks Kandee from YouTube!
Love this product! Got it only since they don't sell it in my country. I absolutely love this, it works wonders on dry areas but it does not clogs your pores what so ever. It is very thick but as I said it does not clog my pores or irritate my skin. I love this!
I got this product a while back on my vegan/organic kick and I've discovered new ways to use it. I used to use it for my dry hands in the winter, but once YouTube guru Kandeejohnson said she slathered this stuff all over her face at night I decided to give it a go (considering I have dry, acne-free, skin). So I slathered this stuff on mi cara (face, ha ha) and the next morning I woke up my skin was pretty soft and the product was still some what on there. Not my HG night creme, but not too shabby :)
PS - I actually like that smell?
I originally got this after I got my tattoo since I have allergic reactions to products with mineral oil in them, but I've kept it around because it's just such a good thing to have in the bathroom. I don't know what people are talking about when it comes to the smell, because I personally don't think it has one, but I don't think that even if I though it smelled awful I would stop using it. I have so many uses for this amazing stuff that I will have to list them down to show just how versatile this is!
Diaper Rash Treatment
Dry Skin Treatment
This serves so many purposes in my life and I'm amazed that it's all down to one product. While I generally only use this as a cut ointment, dry skin treatment, one of the really great things is using it as a rash cream. Don't worry, I don't mean diaper rash. I get some bumps under my arms from shaving and this has really helped. This is also really great for the girls who love Egyptian Magic, but hate the price. So much better than that nasty mineral oil, petroleum junk called Vasaline!
I bought this after youtuber MU guru Kandee Johnson mentioned that she used it as a moisturizer around her eyes. It was only a few bucks at Whole Foods, so I thought why not? Honestly, I really like this product. I will say that I mostly use it on my feet because it is so heavy and so petroleum-like that I can't bring myself to rub it around my eyes. I think Kandee's skin looks amazing though, so someday I may be brave enough to use it as a moisturizer around my eyes...
This stuff is a staple in my house. It is all-natural, contains few ingredients (castor oil, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, & beeswax), and has a plethora of uses. I use it on my daughter's bum to prevent diapy rash, on my son's dry winter cheeks and lips, around my eyes after moisturizing at night, on my lips, on my feet covered with cotton socks overnight, as a hand salve, and as a cuticle softener. It's a great all-purpose product and a great value at $4 for a 3.5 oz tube.
