Last summer I went through radiation for breast cancer. After radiation my skin was burnt and sore. The doctors' gave me medication and ointments to help the "sun-burn". I applied them religiously but it was going on 3 weeks and the area had not healed much. I found Skin-Aid in the drugstore while on vacation. Within 3 days of applying Skin-Aid the area showed great signs of improvement. I was so impressed and relieved that this ointment was working. Skin-Aid is a super, fantastic, helpful and reliable product. I have told so many others about it. (I even use it on pimples and they disappear within 3 days!)

I wish this had a flip top. I don't know why cosmetics companies still use screw-ons. Anyway, this is a good product. I use it on my cuticles, which can be very dry and are prone to painful hangnails. This can sting a little bit at first if you put it on over an open wound, but it does help quite a lot. It's a good product to have in the medicine cabinet just in case...

If this formula didn't separate in the tube I would love it,
but every time I go to use it I have to pour a bunch out until I get some of it that's not all watery.
I've tried squeezing the tube to try to stir it around and I've also tried shaking it but nothing works.
I MIGHT buy again in hopes that maybe I just got a bad tube last time but I don't know.

I had an embarrasing oops the other day when i was *ahem* waxing off the hair on my upper lip (thanks alot european descent), and for some reason, i also waxed off the top layer of skin on my right upper lip (towards the outer corner, not the whole upper lip thank gosh). Well, i have always used Neosporin cream on whatever cuts/scrapes i had, even on my face for when i picked (and shouldnt have). Well, the neosporin left a sort of shiny place (even though it was the cream formula, not the ointment), and i couldnt cover it up with makeup, so here i am at work, everyone pretty much pointing this huge red mark out AS IF I DIDNT KNOW IT WAS THERE!!! hahaha :-) After about a day, the surface was starting to scab lightly, but then crack painfully everytime i talked or smiled. I knew i needed something different, but wasnt sure what. I went to Walmart right after work to the first aid aisle, and this jumped right out at me, mainly b/c it had a big red sale sticker for $5.00 a tube (original price was around 7-8 bucks). I dont have the tube in front of me so i cant state the ounces, but for the small amount i use each time, its a pretty decent size. So for the verdict...I got home from work, washed my face, applied this wonder cream to that spot, and i woke up with it no longer red WHATSOEVER. Sure, it was still pink, but no scab, no cracks, not even as painful and tender as it was 7 hours before. I took a shower, applied this again, applied my Cetaphil lotion everywhere else on my face, and applied my makeup as usual, and was even able to apply my mineral powder concealer over it, without any cakeyness either. Even my coworkers (and girlfriends) mentioned they could hardly see it anymore. I dont know how in the world glycerin and that external analgesic (starts w/a P, cant remember the name) could heal this in one day, but it has. It's a keeper for sure. I have used it on some jagged cuticles overnight and they seemed much less inflamed when i woke up.

I have two tubes of this miracle cream/ointment. One in my bathroom and the other I keep in my mu bag. The consistency is like a creamy vaseline, but thinner. It's very easy to rub this into your skin. I've used it on mosquito bites and the itch is gone. I've also used this for chapped lips, dry cuticles, dry patch on my knee, paper cuts,.... on and on. I first bought this becuase I had red, dry, itchy patch on my eyelid due to who knows what (new eyeshadow?) and it wouldn't go away. I went to the drugstore for an ointment and found this in the first-aid section. I bought it and eye-thing went away in two days. I went back and bought another tube. I told my mom and friends to go buy it and we all love this. I'll always have it around. I'm thinking of buying a 3rd tube just becuase I always want one handy.

The full name of this product is Skin Aid All-In-One skin recovery treatment.
The box says it treats, soothes and protects the skin as it heals.
Apparently this is quite the all-in-one product as it treats multiple skin issues including pain, itch, minor cuts & scrapes, minor burns, irritation, redness, chapping, cracking, insect bites, stings and sunburn.
The active ingredients include Glycerin (40%) which is a skin protectant and Pramoxine Hydrochloride (1%) which is as external analgesic.
I found this product at Target in the first aid aisle instead of the beauty aisle where you normally go for Neutrogena products. I'd been looking for this product after seeing it on Neutrogena's website when I was searching for hand lotions. This, of course, isn't a lotion, but it has proven to be a minor godsend in the past few days. Either my winter skin is really bad this year or my hands came into contact with some sort of irritant because my hands, but especially my fingertips, have been rough, chapped, cracked and catching on everything. I started applying this lotion at night a few days ago and there's already an immediate difference. My cuticles are soft for once and my hands haven't required as many lotion applications as they normally do. My fingertips are getting back to normal and they've stopped catching on my lace underwear. You're not supposed to apply this product more than 3-4 times daily, but I plan to strictly use this at night so that won't be a problem.
From what I've seen, this is a great skin rescue product. I'm going to try it the next time i have a little cut or burn (inevitable occurrences in my life) and I'll update accordingly. But so far, we have a winner!
