I got this in the little tube because I had disgusting cracks at the corners of my mouth that would not heal, despite taking extra B vitamins, which did the trick in the past. Vaseline did nothing, shea butter did nothing, Kiehl's Baby Lip Balm with olive oil did nothing. This cleared up the problem in about two days. AND it makes my mouth look younger:-)

Fabulous for dry, irritated spots or patches and particularly as a lip balm. Cannot be without this for our winter use especially.

I have never jumped on this site to review a product this quickly.....but OMG.....Aquaphor has been a life saver for my lips. I bought this a few days ago and nothing, I mean nothing, has done for my lips what this product has done! After the first application I noticed a HUGE difference. I took it home, put it on , forgot about it and then a few hours later I looked in the mirror and I could not believe it......my lips were smooth and had a nice pink tone to them, and they acutally looked a bit plumper!
I have awful, chronic dry lips that crack and peel no matter what the weather. I've tried soooooooooooo many products I thought I would never find anything to help. I was doing some research online after a dreadful day of peeling and bleeding lips, which the Rose Salve I was using only seemed to make worse, I saw this recommended on various sites and ran out to buy it.The only other product that provided some relief was plain Vaseline but as mentioned in other reviews it was too greasy and came off right away, plus it always just seemed to sit on top of my lips. Although this is a petroleum product it seems to just sink in to your skin! I've put it on at night and I've woken up with the softest lips I've ever had!
I can't believe it took me so long to find this product....but I'm so glad I did!

I have badd eczema where i have to scratch my legs CONSTANTLY at times. So a friend of mine suggested me to aquaphor and i was SOLD. Its pretty thick but i think thats the point. I rub some on my legs whenever i feel itchy and then i forget about it. The itchyness definitely declines. I dont like the squeeze bottle thing however because the product is so thick its hard to get it out, I will definitely buy the tub next time seeing as i need it pretty often. The thickness of the product is definitely bad, it makes me feel like i cant change into different pants because i might rub it off. Also leave my hands feeling gummy so i always have to wipe my hands off on a towel after use. WORKS WELL FOR ECZEMA. not a lifesaver but def. helps.

The best product out there for dry skin. My hands and feet get so dry and this is the only stuff that works. All other lotions I have to apply and reapply. This stuff really makes my skin feel better and I don't need to reapply as much. It reallly does moisturize AND protect skin. Will repurchase definately.

This ointment is messy, a little goes a LONG way...but, it has really helped my dry cuticles & hands. Use just a bit, and you will see a difference. This has been the best product I have found for dryness.

ive been using aquafor for a long time. it has really saved me during periods of super dry skin and lips. i think the reason some people are having bad/lackluster results is because they are trying to use it as a stand-alone moisturizer. on its own, it doesnt really hydrate or moisturize, rather, it seals in other products and protects from moisture loss. in addition, ive never found this to aggravate or cause breakouts, quite the opposite in fact. by calming and healing dry skin, it seems to have a positive effect on breakouts as well. the only downside i can think of (more like a recommendation) is that, due to the shiny-ness and the fact that it just sits like a barrier on your face, you may want to save it for nights that your boyfriend/significant other isnt spending the night! not very glamorous haha.
the way i use it is to first slather on moisturizer/lip balm and wait for it to sink in. i then apply a layer of aquafor over it and leave it on overnight. when i wake up, my skin feels restored and looks moist and healthy. i think of it as a boost, maximizing the effectiveness of other moisturizers. try it this way and i predict you will have much better results than simply using it on its own!
UPDATE: ok i have to revise this to admit that i was wrong! not about how great aquafor is, but on my assertion that it cannot moisturize on its own. georgia is finally getting winter temps so my already dry lips were recently plunged into extreeeme dryness. i am not exaggerating when i say that, after one night of slathering aquafor on my lips before bed, my lips are soft and smooth and no longer flaky and dry. it is seriously the only thing you can put on at 12am and when you wake up at 7am its still there! and the texture of your lips has been transformed while you were asleep! amazing product!

In the wintertime, I love Aquaphor more than anything else in the world. My skin will get ridiculously dry, what with central heating indoors and cold winds outdoors, and the best thing to restore my soft skin is to slather on my night moisturizer (Weleda's Skin Food) and then smear Aquaphor on top of it. The Aquaphor seals in everything and I wake up to perfect skin again. It's a godsend!

By the looks of the reviews, I am in the minority. I found this DRYING for my lips and skin, as did my mother. I slathered it on and I would wake up to lips that were even more dry and cracked and skin that felt tight and very dry. My mother told me she experienced the same. We both tried it several times, hoping the results would come later. They didn't. Perhaps we just don't gave good luck with petroleum bases products, but I was extremely disappointed with this product. I'm glad it works for so many.

Very useful product for extra-dry patches. Haven't used it on my face, but smooths out heels, elbows, etc. I've used it on my hands on occasion as well although I wouldn't recommend leafing through important papers afterward. Although it's mostly petroleum jelly, it seems to absorb better and have a less pronounced odor than Vaseline, Bag Balm, and the like.
