Serious treatment for seriously messed-up skin, November 26, 2008
By
 This review is from: Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy, 14-Ounce Jars (Pack of 2) (Health and Beauty)
The first thing you’ll notice about Aquaphor Healing Ointment is that it’s not calling itself a “moisturizer.” Take that as a hint — it’s not for casual, all-day use. For that, I recommend the peerless Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion. This Aquaphor ointment is what I turn to when my hands or elbows or toes or heels are severely distressed. It’s heavy, it’s greasy, it doesn’t rub in very well, and I don’t mind, because it really works as advertised: it truly heals the rawest, itchiest skin.The best way to use this ointment is at night. I’ve been known to go to bed with medical white cotton gloves over a slathering of Aquaphor when gardening or cleaning has really torn up my skin. The change the next morning is amazing. A little experimentation also taught me to put a “base coat” of this ointment on my hands whenever I’m about to undertake some work that I know will mess them up. Because Aquaphor is so thick and greasy, it actually repels water and dirt, greatly decreasing the amount of damage caused by washing dishes, digging in dirt, cleaning up, etc.In short, Aquaphor Healing Ointment is heavy-duty. It doesn’t smell pretty (though it doesn’t smell bad either). It’s not light and airy. It’s not dainty. It doesn’t have a picture of flowers on it, and it doesn’t make you feel “pampered.” It’s medicine, and it works.

Better than Vaseline, November 16, 2008

This review is from: Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy, 14-Ounce Jars (Pack of 2) (Health and Beauty)
I’ve read reviews of this product complaining that it’s an expensive version of Vaseline, which I sympathize with. Having had severe-moderate psoriasis for years, I have lots of experience with Vaseline and various other greasy, heavy lotions. Aquaphor certainly LOOKS like Vaseline: it’s clear and kind of slimy. But there are nonetheless perceptible differences between the two. Aquaphor’s consistency is much better. It’s thicker, it stays on the skin longer, it absorbs better, it doesn’t rub off onto everything as quickly, it isn’t quite as greasy. I would (and do) pay the extra price to use this product over Vaseline any day. They are not the same product.This subscribe and save deal, moreover, is the cheapest I’ve ever found this stuff anywhere. In the store, you’ll pay $14-$16 for one container this size. So if you have dry skin or a skin condition and use lotion every day like me, you should look into this offer while it lasts.

Licensed Estheticians Review, October 11, 2012

This review is from: Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy, 14-Ounce Jars (Pack of 2) (Health and Beauty)
UPDATED REVIEWOk, Glamazons, there was a misprint in my last review, seriously, a MAJOR one. I am a human being and guess what???? Sometimes I make mistakes! This one just happened to be one that I didn’t proof read ahead of time, and therefore brought a hateful, and personal attack down upon me. On the bright side.. I am able to correct my mistake! Yay! Blessing in disguise! 🙂 Here are the reasons I love this product, and so do many physicians, estheticians, beauty experts etc.Vaseline is 100% petrolatum, while Aquaphor is 41% petrolatum based. With that being said, I am NOT writing a negative review about vaseline (vaseline has it’s own positive attributes, I’m focusing on Aquaphor), I’m writing a positive one about Aquaphor.Aquaphor is more miscible with aqueous solutions than Vaseline. Vaseline is mainly used in lotions as a catalyst, or lubricant, Aquaphor is not used in lotions. Aquaphor is made up of 41% percent petrolatum while the rest of the ingredients are lanolin and glycerin. Pharmacists use Aquaphor as a base for pharmaceutical ointments, unlike vaseline.

I, and my colleagues, clients etc. love to use this multi-tasker on our lips, with a little pigment mixed in you can make it any color. It’s great for hands and feet in the cold dry months, and is really soothing in a medicated version on cuts, burns and scrapes. These facts came from a pharmacist, and can also be found on differencebetween.net (vaseline vs. aquaphor). Love Aquaphor, I find it to be a household necessity as well as a “must have” in your makeup kit. My reviews are done in the light for the greater good of all. Thank you to the person who brought my mistake to light. Many blessings to you.

Namaste,

Heals dry hands – Nurses perspective, November 18, 2008
By
This review is from: Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment, Advanced Therapy, 14 Ounce Jar (Pack of 2) (Health and Beauty)
As a nurse I wash my hands several hundred times a day it seems. Even with the hospitals using moisturizing soaps my skin gets very dry. I bought this little jug and take it to work with me. It is amazing how well it can moisturize my VERY dry hands. In the winter I get cracks on the outside of my palms, without fail every year. I take this cream and let it sit on the crack for as long as I can. By the next day or so the crack has healed enough to be more manageable.Several patients have this cream prescribed to them by their doctors its so good.I highly recommend this cream to everyone that suffers from dry, cracked skin!Thank you for reading my review.

UPDATE July 2013:
So I write this review in 2008. No other reviews for 3 months then a few throughout the years then this spring there are suddenly over 150 new ones and my review gets not helpful over 20 times in 2 weeks. Seems fishy if you ask me. Thanks a lot fellow “reviewers”

Goes on a little greasy but works like a charm!, February 14, 2009
Verified Purchase
This review is from: Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment, Advanced Therapy, 14 Ounce Jar (Pack of 2) (Health and Beauty)
I purchased this ointment based on a recommendation by my son’s pediatrician. My son suffers from severe eczema and nothing we were using on him was helping. We have to be very careful with what we use on his skin because anything can make his condition flare up. The pediatrician recommended we use the Aquaphor ointment on him at least two times a day, and especially after his bath. She also said it is important to apply it within minutes after patting him dry from his bath before the skin has a chance to ‘dry out’.This is the only product that has helped his skin condition. If we use it on him twice a day his eczema is nearly non-existent. It has worked so well on him that I started using it after I shower and it has made a tremendous difference in my skin. I don’t have eczema but in the winter I end up with severe dry skin and this is the only moisturizer that made a difference.The only downside to this ointment is that it goes on greasy and can take a few minutes for the greasiness to soak in. I prefer not to put on any good clothes right away in case some of the grease transfers to my clothes before it soaks into my skin. If there is a greasy spot or two on the clothing then using powder on the spots helps to get it out (let the powder sit on the greasy spot for a few minutes or more so it soaks up the oils, then brush the powder away). Even though it goes on greasy I decided to give it 5 stars because it is an ‘ointment’ rather than a ‘moisturizer,’ and it does what it is supposed to better than any other product we have tried.

Wasted $100’s then finally found this..but keep 1 thing in mind!, September 25, 2013
This review is from: Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment Diaper Rash and Dry Skin Protectant, 14 oz Jar (Health and Beauty)
I have been using and carrying around this product with me for years. It’s safe, gentle, and dermatologist recommended. I’ve used it on my infant daughter’s diaper rash when anything containing Zinc Oxide made her bottom bleed (she’s allergic to that), and it cleared up overnight. She’s 2 now, and we both still use it. I apply a small amount to my dry, bleeding and cracked cuticles at night, and they’re smooth in the morning. It’s also a great remedy for dry, cracked lips. I always keep a tube on me. It’s expensive, but the 1.75 ounce tube lasts a very long time, and goes a really long way. I stick to what I like, and this product absolutely never disappoints!
There is one mistake I made recently I thought I’d share. I was at a Walgreens looking to purchase more, and chose the store brand over the Eucerin Brand. Big mistake!!The store brand product immediately liquefied in a sort of filmy, slimy liquified version of something that’s meant to soothe and coat your lips with moisture. Upon further research I found a few interesting facts…First, both products do contain the key ingredient of Petroleum (41%). However, the Aquaphor brand contains other Inactive Ingredients listed as: Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Panthenol, Glycerin and Bisabolol. The “Store Brand” lacks the last three I’ve listed in the Aquaphor Brand. The difference is quite shocking. Could this be why the store brand is such poor quality as compared to the Eucerin brand? I don’t know, but I’ll never buy store brand for this product again.Be sure to check labels before you buy store brand to make sure it really is similar to the name brand, otherwise you might find that you’ve saved a $1 on something that turns out to be a waste of money.
