Great versatile product. People (with the bad reviews) do not seem to understand that this does not moisturize but helps to SEAL in the moisture, protect healing skin, cuts, etc. That is why its recommended for helping to heal tattoo's, eczema, etc. Basically I use it at night after I am done brushing my teeth I quickly apply it as a balm to my lips to seal in the water that was on my lips. By morning, complete softness, ready to go for my lipsticks. I use it on my son immediately AFTER his bath to SEAL in the moisture in his skin because he has eczema. The ped. derm explained to me that your skin retains the water moisture for up to 20 minutes following any bath/shower, etc before it evaporates so the key is to do it within a 20 minute window. I just read a review to put some on my eyelashes for growth and softening purposes. While i dont believe it will help them grow per se, i do believe it softened them and the extra plus was that as i slept, some of it came off my lashes and onto my undereye and softened the dry lines there! it was very smooth and plump! so this morning i did not need to put extra moisturizer under my eye before using my undereye concealer. I have purchased both the tub and the tubes. the tub is for home after baths and the tubes are for travel. WAY better than Vaseline. I also used this when my son was a baby after each diaper change. i can 100% say that he NEVER, ever had diaper rash thanks to this. I smeared some on his bottom and in between his thighs (where his thigh meets his groin) and he never had an issue while he was in diapers. it totally created a barrier between his skin and the pee. Contains 40% petrolatum- I know everybody says to NOT use it on your skin, clogs pores etc, but this works! no clogged pores in this family. :)

I have severly dry lips, and this works wonders when I apply overnight.

This product does wonders for my lips. I normally have soft lips, but sometimes I lick my lips a lot that is causes my lips to be extremely chapped that it burns and stings. For these emergencies no other product works for me like this one. So before I go to bed, I put a medium layer on my lips. When I wake up they feel 10x smoother. I wouldn't recommend using this in public because it's thick and it doesn't look good. When I go out, I just use my regular chap stick. Overall I do recommend it. Plus it's cheap too.

Aquaphor is Vaseline on steroids. It moisturizes like no other product, but it can still be used for convenient multi-purpose tasks like removing eye makeup mistakes on the fly.

I agree that the product is very greasy. That's why I only use it at night. It may be just glorified Vasaline to some but to me its much better. It does something for me that vasaline can't. It compeletely heals my chaffed skin. I just put it on at night where I need it, go to sleep and wake up completely healed. Overnight! So if any of you girls have any chaffing or etc. whether it be from clothing or environmental irritants, this it the stuff you should use.

I'm obsessed with this stuff. I keep the tube on my nightstand right next to my bed so that I can apply it (pretty much all over my entire body, lol) every night before going to bed.
As a result of consistently using Aquaphor, my skin has gotten SO extremely satiny smooth to the touch. It's GLORIOUS!!!! I like that it's fragrance free, too. Nothing is worse than trying to fall asleep with a super strong perfume-y smell all around you. ick, can't do it!
This is not the most inexpensive product on the shelf, but for its performance, it is simply the best there is.

As someone else said, this is just "glorified Vaseline". I don't get all the hype. It just sits on your skin, it doesn't sink in. Yes, it protects, but it doesn't moisturize. I first bought this to use on my severely dry hands. Ha Ha, what a joke. Grease city! Now I just use this as I would Vaseline. Chapped lips, dry cuticles, irritated winter nose. At this rate, I'll never use up the darn tub. For sure, I will never buy again.

I love love love aquaphor- I use it for everything!
Eye Cream,Moisturizing feet, elbows, knees, taming frizzie flyaways right by my hair line, lip balm, on chapped noses and cheeks, burns, and on anything that may scab. Aquaphor prevents scabbing, and if you have one already, it will soften it and help you heal without a scar. It is also fantastic for if you have a new tattoo. Just apply 2 or 3 times a day and it will keep your new tattoo hydrated and healing properly. On my last tattoo I used it and it never went through the peeling stage at all (nor does aquaphor suck out the color, I was actually introduced to it by the tattoo artist who recommended it). Anyway, this is a one-size-fits-all kind of product, there are a million uses for it, and I will never be without it again.

Although I'm oily, I'm 30 years old and live in a very dry climate. I expierience suface dryness/flakiness every now and again and this stuff helps seal in moisture!
I just use it when I need it- mostly during the winter or after a chemical peel. I apply my usual skin care then take a pea sized amount of Aquaphor, warm it up in my fingertips, and pat it on to the dry areas. I can also dab it on top of makeup without disturbing it.
Also great to keep fresh tattoo's moist!

I know all derms/PSs are apparently in love with this stuff, much like they are with Cetaphil, but I don't see what all the fuss is about.
As most people will admit, rarely do you get the feeling that Aquaphor actually absorbs into your skin, and if it doesn't absorb into your skin, I'm not sure how it can really be moisturizing it. Even hours after you apply it, you can sometimes still feel the greasiness and gooey-ness on your skin.
I think it may do a good job of preventing moisture loss, that's for sure, but I would not recommend it for treating dry skin. I have had better results using a good all-natural lip balm anywhere I need to.
