Hmm…well, this product was not what I expected. Not that it was bad, I just expected something a little more than some gussied up petroleum jelly. Especially given all the rave reviews I’ve read about this stuff.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment is marketed as an advanced therapy for parched skin and it is, but dang…I just haven’t been able to get over how much more I expected! This probably has to do with the fact that I’m not a huge fan of straight PJ, as it can get kinda greasy.
On the bright side, this product does have many uses, including minor cut/scrape/burn protectant, lip balm, and hand/body moisturizer. It’s also fragrance and preservative free.
I keep mine on my desk, so I pretty much only use it after I’ve washed my hands. However, it has come in handy in a pinch as a lip balm on those rare days (usually after I clean out my purse once in a blue moon) that I have no other lip product on me to speak of
Have any of you guys given this product a shot?
Pros: Multi-use, cheap, lip balm in a pinch, safe for sensitive skin
Cons: Greasy, essentially petroleum jelly
$6 for 1.75 oz
