I bought aquaphors at the drug store because I had read so many recommendations from the skin care board. This product is awesome. It has become my nightstand favorite. I use it all over, my face, lips, hands, body and feet. I'm going to get the smaller tube to keep in my travel bag, that way I'll never be without it. It replaces so many different products and at a fraction of the price.

People always talked about this product and it seemed too good to be true. Nope. It truly is a wonderful product. I have been applying it on my lips every morning over over a year now. I have no problems with dried or cracked lips at all. I apply it before lipstick or gloss (with gloss, I blot a bit) It's not too thick or greasy. It's just right for giving me soft lips.

I don't know where people are getting "petroleum-free" from. If you look at the ingredients list, that is the main active ingredient... I was reluctant to buy it at first because it did seem like a "glorified Vaseline" until I saw a teeny trial tube for sale at CVS. $1 couldn't hurt, right? I already have Vaseline to use on various parts of the body, but it tastes awful when I put it on my chapped lips. Aquaphor is virtually tasteless and odorless, goes on smooth, and I woke up this morning with soft smooth lips. I'd really recommend the little tube for your lips or face; for anything else, save some money and buy Vaseline.

I never bothered trying this until now, since I figured it was just expensive Vaseline. But it really is different. I still like my Carmex, but Aquaphor is better - no smell, not as gloppy, calms irritation immediately (when my lips get dry they also burn), and is better under/over lipstick. So now I keep little tubes of this all over. It is a bit pricey for what you get, but it is worth it.

Was surprised to spot this at my Maxi pharmacy section here in Quebec, Canada. I bought the big tub, because that's all they had. Was very underwhelmed. The feeling on my skin is no different than petroleum jelly IMO.

I had extremely bad eczema on my hands and patches on my face that would not go away; my doctor prescribed a steroid cream and recommended this to me. She said I could even try using it on my face at night; she also told me that it was very thick and very greasy.

At that point, I was thinking---Yeah, right. I really don't think I'm putting something like that on my already oily and acne prone face. Plus, I don't like using petroleum products if I can help it, but my hands were desperate, so I bought it (and yes, it is more expensive than Vaseline).

Anyway, this stuff did wondrous things for my hands in only a couple days, and the consistency and feel of it is so much better than Vaseline (which I hate), and it doesn't stink like Vaseline (even though it is made with petroleum). I put it on at night and put on cotton gloves; I also put it on my feet and then put on socks; in just a couple days, my skin was much better and so soft.

I was so impressed, I decided to try it on my face--I was so scared I'd wake up with a face full of pimples and an unmoveable oil slick, BUT, that didn't happen. When I woke up, my skin was very soft, and my eczema spots (pretty large ones) were almost healed, and the pimples I already had were smaller, less red, and less painful.

I don't know how this works, but it is SOOO much better than Vaseline, and it has healed any dry or damaged skin I've had. Now that my eczema is gone, I still use this as a facial, hand, and foot moisturizer a couple times a week. This really is a healing ointment, and no one could be more surprised than I.

Edited to add: Yes, I did also use the steroid cream while I was using this because the eczema was bad, but now that it's gone, when the eczema spots pop back up, I use the Aquaphor, and it does the trick.

I always saw this at the store, but didn't think much of it. However, combined with the high reviews on Productville and the latest InStyle mag where Lucy Liu bragged about this stuff, I thought I'd give it a shot. I picked up the small 2-tube pack at Duane Reade for $5.99. Each tube is about the size of a lipgloss, so I have one on my bedside table, and the other in my makeup bag.

This has replaced my beloved Rosebud Salve as daily/nightly lipbalm. I like that it does not have a scent (though I do like the rosebud scent of the salve), it's not too greasy, and the container is very sanitary and perfect.

I would buy this again and again, and would recommend to everyone for chapped lips, too! continued >>

This is the only product of any kind out there that I would call my HG. I have chapped lips worse than ANYONE else I know, and have searched for over a decade looking for something that actually worked. Aquaphor is it. It is THE perfect lip moisturizer. It's nice and shiny; I like the texture better than vaseline-- it's smoother somehow, a little more emmollient and moist. I wish it came in smaller packages, but I really can't complain.

I first used this 5 years ago on a recommendation by my dermatolgist; my skin was sensitized to everything at that point, and I was truly desperate. For raw, troubled, sensitized skin, I've never found anything better. It is indeed super greasy so you can only apply it at night, but the next morning any serious skin problem is improved. This is my HG emergency repair cream + daily lip moisturizer.
