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.

Horrible break-outs! Aquaphor was a recommended product to use when doing at-home face peels. I use MUAC's glycolic and TCA peels regularly but had never used aquaphor as an ointment on my face while healing. Decided to try it this time - huge mistake! I broke out in terrible, cystic acne on my chin and cheeks, so now I have red marks and little bumps to mar the nice new skin revealed by the peel.
I also agree with the reviewer below - it's glorified vaseline.
I'll finish up the tube by using it on my feet, but NOWHERE else. Bah.:(

This stuff is amazing. I've been using this product on my lips at night before bed for about three years now. It saves my lips during the winter, and my lips have not been chapped in three years!!!!

this is mostly an FYI post re: the regular Healing Ointment and the Baby Healing Ointment. They are, according to the Eucerin website the same product in different packaging. from their website:
Q: What's the difference between Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment? Why do the packages look different if the product is the same?
A: There's no difference between these two products. We made Aqupahor Healing Ointment available in a "baby" package to better help moms locate it in the store.

The dream ointment for my dry, rough elbows. A little goes a long way, which is good because I've barely made a dent in my 14 oz jar. Use it on anything- calluses, dry spots, scars. Super gentle and moisturizing. Only thing is how greasy skin gets after you initially apply it. But I can let it slide for how soft it makes my skin!

I totally agree with the reviewer below me (taylorlaur). I first used this while on Accutane. I was searching around online shortly after the medicine kicked in and I was desperate to find a way to deal with my severely chapped lips. I came across someone who posted about Aquaphor and I immediately went out to get some. It was a miracle cure! I've been using it ever since, whether on my lips or for minor cuts and scrapes, I also use it whenever I get a bad reaction to a new skincare product. This unassuming little ointment does so much. I'll repurchase for life! They don't sell it here in Sweden that I've been able to find, so I always bring back a supply from the US when visiting my family. I can't be without a tube of this on me at all times!

In response to the poster who said "just by chapstick":
I'm currently on accutane, and NOTHING works like aquaphor. Before accutane, I probably would have agreed with that comment. However, once I got on the medication, I found that simple chapstick wasn't cutting it, at all. Someone recommended aquaphor, and it's been a miracle. Although I still have to apply frequently (maybe 5 times a day) to keep my lips moisturized, I'm not sure I would be able to stay on the meds without it.
Bottom line: If your lips are normal, the cheap stuff is probably fine. But if you have severely chapped lips for whatever reason (medication, weather, etc.) this is the one to go for.

I'm actually surprised at all the glowing reviews. I probably should have looked a little more carefully at the label before purchasing because this is pretty much petroleum jelly. 41% petrolatum with some mineral oil (which is actually drying in the long run,) panthenol and glycerin added to the mix. This is no where near worth $6 for a small tube when you can buy a tub of Vaseline for less than $3. And this is far too greasy to use on my hands. I have to wait forever for it to sink in before I can touch anything. As far as using it on one's lips, just buy a $.50 Chapstick and be done with it.
