i have a friend who love love LOVES aquaphor. i always see her using it and she even told me a couple times about how awesome it was. i hang out at a tattoo shop and they have a stock of aquaphor as well. for the past 2 years, i thought aquaphor was just some overpriced vaseline; well... the active ingredient is the same thing. i saw a pack of two travel tubes and decided to give it a try.
now, i LOVE (i love a lot of things, don't i? haha) Aquaphor!!!!! i use it as a lip mask at night, i use it on my tattoo sometines, as well as my elbows and my legs. basically, any place that gets totally chappy and flakey. i even bought one of those big tubes!

This was on my list to use after laser skin surgery and I bought this and a generic. The generic was fair at best and this was the most soothing balm ever. I continued to use long after I didnt need to. I dont know what the difference was but dont waste your money on a generic.

I remember the day I bought this stuff. I had heard great things about it, and saw it at cvs. I was so hesitant to buy it, considering vaseline was so much cheaper, haha. But I don't regret getting it at all :)
I use Aquaphor whenever areas of my skin get really dry: feet, elbows, knees, etc. My lips tend to get dry/chapped easily, and Aquaphor is one of my favorite lip moisturizers. I use it almost every night as a lip balm before I go to sleep. Works great!

This product deserves HG status-it is absolutely the best moisturizer for dry skin ever!Period,end of story.This ointment does not sit on top of the skin like vaseline,it sinks in very quickly.Just a little dab a few times around your face,rub it in and it disappears within a few minutes.Parched skin is gone, dry skin a thing of the past.I read in a fashion mag that surfers love to use this after a day in the sun.This product cannot be d/c'd or the world will come to an end-IT IS THAT GOOD!

This is one of those things every woman should own. It's a million times better than vaseline, too! I mostly use it for my chapped lips, but it works wonderfully when my cuticles, feet, hands, elbows, or dry patches need something extra heavy and moisturizing. I find when I put this on my lips at night, they never get chapped and I wake up and they're all full and nice-looking! Your lips kind of deflate when they're dehydrated, and this plumps mine right back up because its so rich. It doesn't smell funny or irritate anything and it makes scabs and blisters heal so much faster! Love. This is a million times better than vaseline, no joke. Get it. It's a classic for good reason.

I bought Aquaphor to put on my lips because I was overzealous when waxing my lip and ripped several layers of skin off. I got a small burn on my upper lip that was blistered, red, scabbing, and cracked. It was painful to open my mouth to eat or speak. I put the Aquaphor on the burn and in 12 hours it was completely healed. The scabbing, redness, and tenderness are completely gone. I am in love with this product. I am also using it on my lips and cuticles as a moisturizing treatment. Love it!

I keep this handy to put on my eczema (facial) when it gets really bad. I like it better than Vaseline for soothing the painful, flaky, oozy mess that can erupt (especially on upper cheeks and between brows/bridge of nose).
I like this on non-eczema times for 1. grooming eyebrows (a very small amount adds shine and a bit of "stay" for unruly hairs) and 2. for lip moisturizing when I'm not wearing lipstick or gloss (which is not often, but...there ya go).
If you already use Vaseline and are fine with it, no need to change. But I like the squeeze bottle (more hygienic) and it has other ingredients other than petrolatum for that extra bit of soothing.
Good product, useful for an assortment of soothing needs (see tattoo uses below), and not expensive.

This review is only in regards to use as a chapstick. I have not used it for other purposes. It comes in a big squeeze tube that I purchased at walmart for $5. I couldn't find smaller bottles that would be more convenient to carry in my purse. I have severely dry, flakey lips all the time regardless of the weather and it's been this way for years. I've even thought about seeing a determatologist about this. I have used numerous products (just to name a few, Burt's Bee's, Blistex, Carmex, Aveeno, Chapstick, etc) and none of them have treated my dry lips for good although some are clearly better than others and do help moisturize to some degree. I was hesitant to use this because a few reviews referred it as glorified vaseline and vaseline doesn't work for me. It moisturizes the lips initially but after a few days, the dryness returns. Unfortunately, this is what happened to me with Aquaphor. The ingredients list petroleum as 41% so I should've known. The consistency feels like vaseline too. The first two days, it was great. My lips were moisturized and somewhat flake free. I made sure not to overapply because that can create a rebound effect with any lip balm but on the third day, it just stopped working just like that. All of a sudden, my lips grew more dry and flakier. I stopped using it for a few days and went back to it and the results were the same. It no longer helps. I could see this working if your lips are not as seriously dry or flakey as mine or if it's being used on fairly healthy lips to prevent dry lips but if your lips need severe help and it's been a recurring problems for years, I don't recommend this if you've already tried vaseline. I have to give this 2 points though because it'll be useful for other areas of the body.
