Aquaphor Healing Ointment by Eucerin

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?

Quick recap:

Pros: Multi-use, cheap, lip balm in a pinch, safe for sensitive skin
Cons: Greasy, essentially petroleum jelly

Stay Beautiful

    I just picked this up today for the first time. Like Eucerin this baby is THICK..lol
    I have to use it again to be fair but I know that my hands were not dry after I was done applying this product..lol

  2. Beauty 365 says:

    yeah man, thick is an understatement! i’m trying to discover fun uses for it — wish me luck! and, let us know what you think of it!

    The only time I have used this stuff is when having skin tags removed and the derm gave it to me so the areas the tags were removed wouldn’t dry out (kind of like using neosporin without the pain medication). If I’m putting something on my skin to moisturize it thtat’s not like PJ I would use the Aquaphor creams.

    @ StarStar – ahhh, that’s a great use for Aquaphor. It is just like Neosporin but w/o the medication

    thanks for stopping by!
