I bought a little travel size tube of this to use as a lip treatment. It works pretty good, not too greasy and does the job. I think I prefer it over my Carmex. However, this, as well as WD40, is for external use only. So I use it as a night-time treatment when I won't be licking my lips or eating stuff.
I agree with what a couple other people have said. Glorified Vaseline! I'll stick with my good old Vaseline which is cheaper and works just as well.
I think I have found my HG skin moisturizer! I never would have believed that something that feels essentially just like vaseline would produce such great results! I'm 22 and have what I would call a "reverse T-zone" and have always suffered from extreme dryness and flaking/peeling in this area, especially on my nose, and nothing seemed to completely moisturize this area. I have tried applying vaseline to it before and NEVER had results like with Aquaphor. I originally purchased this for my chapped lips after seeing the great reviews here and simply tried it on my face on a whim. I'm truly AMAZED! My peeling and flaking has virtually disappeard, and that's no exagerration. I apply it to my "RTZ" and lips every night before bed and after showering and cleansing. As most have already said, it also works miracles for chapped/peeling lips. It is simply indispensible to me now! I have the medium tube for ease of transportation, but just saw it in a two-pack of minis (purse size) at Target. I recommend this highly. It ain't your Mama's petroleum Jelly!
I made the mistake of buying the big tub of this. It's great and all, but it's nothing but an overrated tub of Vaseline. Save your money girls.
If you are even considering it, buy this product. I have the tube b/c I can easily tranport it. If you don't want to buy plain old vaseline, get this!!!!! I agree with all the other positive reviews - lips, elbows, knees, cuticles, dry skin anywhere (especially my nose area which is dry and peels a lot due to allergies).
For a good lip exfoliation, I suggest applying before taking a shower and then buffing it off with a wet washcloth afterwards. It always works for me.
It is not worth it to buy all those other lip moiturizing products b/c this one does it all!
after a depilatory mishap - this is awesomely cooling and reducing the weird sensation on my upper lip! also - i just had a cold core and didn't want to put anything on my lips but they were so dry. so i started putting this on...it helped soooooooooo much. this is like my new holy grail of lip treatments.
I love this stuff and am never without it. It has sooo many uses... I love it for my dry lips, it keeps them from getting chapped, and makes them feel soft and look glossy. I sometimes use it on my eye area when it gets really dry. I also works well on heels, elbows, and knees. I've also tried a tiny bit on my eyelids, over eyeshadow, to give it a dewy sheen and it has worked well for that. And I am constantly using it on my cuticles and it keeps them in good shape. I mean, this stuff has sooo many uses that it is totally worth it to buy yourself some. A little bit goes a long way, too. Definately, obviously, something I would repurchase again, and again, and again.
Great for lips and as a barrier cream for peels. Not nearly as greasy as vaseline or rosebud so it stays on lips much longer, penetrates and hydrates much better and makes my lips so much softer. Even my bf loves it and he hates everything lippie.
I love Aquaphor. It's the do-all heal-all ointment. It's great for lips and any place on the body. I even like it on my super dry eye area sometimes. It is a bit expensive though, about $9 for the tub. But a little totally goes a long way.
This stuff is really rich and wonderful for dry lips or skin patches. It feels heavy but not greasy and really, really helps for skin dried out by retinol or bp. great!
