Serious treatment for seriously messed-up skin, November 26, 2008
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.

Licensed Estheticians Review, October 11, 2012
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.

Heals dry hands – Nurses perspective, November 18, 2008
Geekdomo “GeekDomo” (127.0.0.1)
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:
Goes on a little greasy but works like a charm!, February 14, 2009
Wasted $100’s then finally found this..but keep 1 thing in mind!, September 25, 2013
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.
