Literally out of the blue I got a dry patch on the corner of mouth that was very painful. It was so painful that it would keep me up at night. After a week i decided enough was enough, it was just not going to go away on its own. I did some research and decided to try Aquaphor. It was the best decision I could have made!!!! After four days of applying it twice a day the dry patch was gone. No dry patch, no more pain.
I don't know what makes this different from general Vaseline, but Aquaphor Healing Ointment by Eucerin just works better. You don't have to use too much, as they used to say, a little dab will do you. Like a good handcream does, this will feel like a second glove on your skin. The big tub retails for about $16.00, so it's a bit more expensive than standard Vaseline, but it lasts a very long time. If you have cuts, burns, a rash, or other skin sensitivities, you cannot go wrong with Aquaphor Healing Ointment this stuff works. It is another staple for your skin care cabinet.
This is the ONLY lip treatment that I will ever use again. My lips have never been healthier. I use it all day and use color on top (usually Burt's Bees.)
You guys are so lucky to have this in the US!! I got it at eBay and although it is a huge jar (14 oz) it still costed me 40$... But it's worth every single penny! It works wonders on dry skins and lips. Both my son and I have very dry, sensitive skin and this stuff smoothes and softens it like nothing else. I applied it on my lips at night and the next morning I had the softest lips ever. I putted it on the really dry, eczema cheeks from my son and now he's got babysoft cheeks for the first time in his life! It looks like Vaseline, but Aquaphor is so much better because it also contains Panthenol and Bisabolol (soothing and calming ingredients). Great stuff! Eucerin, please make access to this miracle stuff in Europe too! Active Ingredients: Petrolatum. Inactive Ingredients: Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Panthenol, Glycerin, Bisabolol. Update: I moved on. After all I found my lips were becoming irritated and flaky (again). I think my skin doesn't like Eucerin products in general so I won't repurchase Aquaphor. I now use Bepanthen Salve.
I am pretty much in love with Aquaphor. I can't believe I haven't written a review on it before! It's my multipurpose beauty product that I absolutely CANNOT live without. I put it on my lips at night and I wake up with super smooth and super soft lips. When I get a sunburn, I put it on a few times a day, and it's much better than aloe vera. My burn seems to go away three times faster. I also use it on my skin the day before a big event, and my skin looks radiant. Bottom line is, this is the best product ever.
The texture is similar to Vaseline, but this stuff is so much better. It moisturizes better (without feeling as greasy), makes skin much softer, and even smells better. This is the best lip moisturizer I've ever found, and it works on dry/cracked skin, too. Can't live without it now!
I can't believe I'd been missing out on such a versatile product. It's absolutely amazing on chapped lips. It lasts forever. I put it on at night and my lips look and feel amazing in the morning. I also dab it on my heels and elbows. Unbelievable results. I would definitely take it with me to a desert island as one of my 5 survival items.
Good enough for burn victims, works magic on lips. The only thing that keeps me un-chapped. Found travel-size tubes at Bed, Bath and Beyond - you don't have to lug around the tub or the hand-size. I've thrown all my other lip balms out. Lasts forever.
Don't you just love love love when you find cosmetics on the outskirts of your cabinets when you're bored? Kinda what happened with this. Okay so my skin is allergic to some of the weirdest stuff such as the coating that covers wood on clarinet reeds and zinc from anything metal, and other stuff and i'm always stuck with scars[not that i mind actually],,, welll, i get irritations on below my lower lip due to my wood allergy, and this stuff cleans it up. It makes the skin there start peeling, to the point where the irritation is gone and I'm just left with a I guess you could say--scarlike thing? Anyway I love this, it heals, i t moisturizes, it just makes my life all the more joyous !! .
I would like to buy it again if it runs out but I don't think it will run out! Let me put it this way, it is THE BEST lip treatment for may dry lips. I used it overnight and my lips have never been so consistently nice and plump!
