Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!! I use this all over my face at night.
I moved to a new city 6 months ago and my skin absolutely hates the weather here. My skin is so so dry it is unbearable. I never had my face burn so much!! I was hesitant to buy something like Aquaphor and cover my entire face, but I really had no choice. My face was burning and peeling, the area near my hairline was purple and brown from dryness. Aquaphor healed that immediately.
As winter continued, some patches on my body became so extremely dry and irritated, they turned brown and purple too just like my forehead. Aquaphor healed those spots in 24 hours.
My face is still dry. I honestly cannot avoid the disgusting winter (and the harsh water) of my new city, there is nothing I can do (except to move of course). I use Aquaphor every night on my entire face. During the day I use Aquaphor on the driest spots on my face before I walk outside in the harsh winter. I reapply once every hour when a red dry spot appears from the harsh winter air and Aquaphor will prevent it from becoming purple and brown.
What I'm saying is, my face is still dry even with Aquaphor. Aquaphor cannot prevent my skin from becoming red because every day the winter and the water is destroying my face. But Aquaphor will prevent the red from becoming purple. Right now my skin is not UNBEARABLY dry, it's just dry. Aquaphor calms my skin down when it becomes too red. It's a huge huge improvement!!!
It is extremely extremely greasy. It's great after shower!!! But because it is so greasy, my hair attaches to my face and irritates my sensitive dry face. I want to scratch it all the time. When I use Aquaphor, I have to make sure my hair is tied tightly away.
