Phenomenal under eye treatment for AM and PM. Plumps, helps with fine lines and imparts a smoother look. Also great for lips and cuticles. No downsides—get a tube!

Love this. It makes my skin so soft and heals any cuts/picked spots on my face. Super moisturizing. It has a consistency of vaseline, so be prepared if you never used it. It rubs on smooth.

In this harsh winter, I'm experiencing very dry skin, with patches of rough/dryer skin. Derm recommended using coconut oil (in a tub) and applying this ointment over it. On my skin, it does nothing. In fact, it made the skin even rougher and drier! The coconut oil seems to help a bit. Prefer my regular Cerave moisturizing cream until can find a star product to help. Ointment is going back.

Like all the other products in this brand, it doesn’t disappoint. HG everything. I love most of their stuff. Especially the ointment and the p.m. facial moisturizer.
This is similar to Aquaphor, but it spread a little bit easier and it does feel slightly greasier but that makes it a lot easier to work with if you need to use it on larger areas. It also feels so nice on your lips it’s all I use on my lips anymore. You can add a little bit over your lipstick and it’s just a wonderful gloss. I use it to shape my brows, you could even use it on your eyelashes. It’s great for everything! Highly recommend it

I can’t really explain the success of this product; it’s basically petroleum, ceremides and silicones. Perhaps it’s like NyQuil-some magic combination of ordinary ingredients whose proportions are perfect.

It’s negative ten degrees where I live this morning, and the air is very dry. If it weren’t for this product, I could never use actives. It’s a final layer every night, and has saved my skin. After cleansing, I apply Hylamide sub-q, an active (either A313, vitamin C or a retinoid) and this. It’s still faintly there in the morning, so if your’re averse to a greasy layer, you may want to avoid this. It has never broken me out, which, my dry sensitive skin likes to do. Truly a standout product. This will be too much in the summer, but highly recommended for winter.

I need a tub of this since I could only find the small tube at my local Target. It keeps the moisture in my skin now that it is getting colder. Doesn't break me out or clog my pores. I was going through a bad week of feeling congested and sick. My nose started to develop flakiness because of constantly using tissue. This really helped to lessen the irritated skin around my nose. Highly recommend

I picked up two purse size tubes of the Cerave ointment on a whim. I usually keep the same size Aquaphor in my purse, my night table, in my desk at work - you get the idea - but Cerave products have worked for me before and, frankly, Aquaphor is the same as Vaseline, in my opinion. Like Aquaphor this is great for the lips, the hands, cuticles, etc. but I never, ever considered putting it under my eyes until I read about it here on MakeupAlley (I think). It's cold out and, despite my efforts, I had one stubborn dry patch ruining my foundation and don't want any more. I squirt out a bead of ointment, melt it by rubbing it between my thumb and forefinger and pat a thin layer under both eyes and on the patch. It doesn't make make my concealer greasy or slippery. Instead it acts like a sealer/primer, sealing in my other moisturizing efforts and providing a smooth surface for the concealer. Hours later my under eye area is still moisturized and not at all papery as it normally is by the end of the day. And, the patch is gone.

Milia is a concern so I avoid the inner corners of the eye (where I've had it before), concentrating instead on underneath and the outer corners. I do not apply the ointment at night. I wouldn't buy this in a tub (unsanitary) but I will buy the large tube when these two lil ones run out.

I love this product. I usually use it after I've done an at home peel or if I'm especially dry. I've used it as an eye cream, lip treatment, on scrapes or burns, you name it! I bought the large tube for hygienic reasons and it's excellent. I live in mn so it's cold and dry in the winters and this stuff really helps. What attracted me to this over aquaphor was the hypersonic acid and ceremides. It's so inexpensive! I was going to purchase the Dr. Jart ceremide cream and I'm thankful I didn't waste my money. I've seen reviews of people using it in the mornings and I'll need to try that out.

i had to review this since I mentioned it in a concealer review. My original reason for purchasing this was because I'd started Retin A (0.025%) and wanted something to combat any resulting dryness. I love that it's got hyaluronic acid and ceramides, and because of the added silicones, it's silkier than vaseline alone. I don't have an issue with silicone or vaseline breaking me out so after applying Retin A, I use this under my eyes, around my nostrils (because I can get a little careless with the Retin A, trying to target my marionette lines) and on my lips. I don't find it *the* best for lips (it seems to thin out when it gets warmed by body heat) but it still works and I don't get dry lips. It works nicely for cuticles and dry hands too when the weather gets so cold and dry. AND, for me, it works amazingly well under concealer (under my eyes). Someone had posted on the boards that they used vaseline under their eyes before concealer so I had to try it using this and I haven't stopped! I use a thin 'film' so just a tiny bit, but it helps spread my concealer and it makes it melt into my skin better. I set with RCMA powder and I'm good for the day! This is also great for the usual cuts, scrapes etc... I got the large tube which can be a little hard to squeeze but you only need a tiny bit to do the job. This will last me forever but I'd certainly buy again.

Great product! I like it so much better than Vaseline or Aquaphor. It makes the best night balm for lips and over your eye cream, also on scrapes or dry patches.

My friend who has super dry skin and is currently on Retin A, uses this as night cream and is loving it. My skin is combo and very break out prone so I wouldn't chance it but for her it's working out amazing.

I have the tiny tubes for travel and on the go and the big tube at home. Will repurchase for sure!
