This did for my lips what Keihl's, Badger, Clinique, Mac, Carmex, Blistex, Aveda, Body Shop, Mama Coco's, Chapstick, Rosebud, Kiss My Face, etc. etc. etc. all FAILED to do.

Ever since I could remember, my lips have always been dry. Whatever lip balm I would be trying at the time, I would need to reapply constantly just to keep it hydrated, and even after a few days, my lips would start to dry up and chap to the point where I would peel it all off so it could grow back soft.

Recently, my bottom lip would not hydrate at all, and would chap to the point where it would bleed. No idea why, but all I know is that everybody's beloved (but nasty tasting and smelling) Carmex couldn't save it. Neither could everybody's beloved Badger Balm. You get the idea.

After reading reviews here, I gave Aquaphor a shot, and I am amazed. Who knew that the best kept secret of lip balms was in the CVS lotion aisle? I apply it ONCE in the morning and I don't even have to apply it again until the evening, which is very contrary to the constant reapplication of the X,Y, and Z lip balms that I'm used to. My lips are effortlessly soft, smooth, for days and days, I can't believe it.

This is wonderful for chapped lips, beats Carmex hands down. A definite staple in the winter time.

After seeing Aquaphor recommended so many times as a lip treatment on the boards, I was so frustrated when I couldn't find it in the lip balm aisle. I finally saw this cream at a beauty convention and the light clicked on! As a hand treatment, this is very much like using Vaseline, it is greasy, heavy and takes forever to absorb, but it's great to have for specially treating hands/feet/whatever. As a lip treatment, it's awesome, but I can't use it everyday, as it breaks me out around my mouth, so be warned if you are also prone to such breakouts (Blistex DCT and Kiehl's broke me out too.) So I use it maybe once a week for a lip treat while I stick with my Chapstick or Avon lip balms. I think I prefer Neutrogena Norwegian Hand Cream or just straight Vaseline over Aquaphor, but I can't write this off completely, as the little travel tubes I received from them come in oh so handy.

I would buy this product again but I have a feeling I never will need to unless I lose it. It's a huge tube since it's to be used for chapped skin as well as lips. After reading postings here I had to get it since my lips have been super dry and horrible. I immediately put it on and started to feel the flakes soften up. There is no scent and has a good thick texture that is easy to spread thinly. I think I might buy a couple of lip balm vials and fill them with this stuff so that I can just throw it in my everyday make-up bag. It would be wonderful if they made this in mint too! But for now...this is a great product.

This stuff is awesome. It is creamier than plain vaseline and not shiney either. It feels fabulous upon application and actually seems to sink into my lips like a lip treatment should. I wonder if the reviewer below got a bad tube or something, as mine is virtually scent & taste free. This is one of the many wonderful products that I never would have known about if not for this wonderful site & the reviews!

*Love* this stuff! It's a miracle worker for my dry lips. I slather it on before bed each night & my lips have been so much softer. It also works great on dry heels. I just wish I could find the elusive travel sized tube for my purse. It's always sold out!

My doctor prescribed Aquaphor mixed 50-50 with Eucerin cream for dry skin. I had visited her thinking I had a fungus or something terrible, as I was itching terribly all the time, and she diagnosed DRY SKIN and told me to use this cream. It works wonders!!! So I mix up a big batch and slather it on whenever winter dry skin sets in. No problems with residual greasiness, soaks right in. Have been using regular Eucerin lotion in summer. Life saver, best stuff.

If you have trouble finding this, Eucerin is the company that makes it. I use this on my lips every night before bed and never get chapped lips anymore, EVER!!! After reading these reviews, maybe I'll try it on my feet too!

This works wonders on my perpetually chapped lips. Rosebud Salve and VS Balmy Nights weren't cutting it, and I needed something very moisturizing, so I picked this up. It's vaseline-like in consistency, clear in color, and odorless. I got mine in a tube for $4.99, but it also comes in a tub. Since I only use this as a lip balm, the tube will literally last years. In two days, my chapped lips were smooth as ever, and now I use Aquaphor at night, and the more lightly-moisturizing Rosebud Salve during the day. I think this is the best lip balm, hands down.

I love the squeeze tube and thick consistancy, but honestly, it's no better than an a good old fashion tub of vaseline! This is just marketed better and costs more! I'm pretty sure you can get vaseline in a squeeze tube now, so it's just come down to a matter of price really! Both do the same exact thing! I took off one lippy for the high cost.
