I have been using this as my night "cream" for about the past month. I slather it all over my face at night, even my eyelashes, and I wake up with soft skin that is highly hydrated and my lashes seem to have actually gotten a little stronger and thicker. I don't have use as much daily moisturizer as I use to either. When I wake up in the morning, I use a daily facial cleansing wipe to clean my face of any that hasn't absorbed into my skin.

Obviously, the biggest thing is that since it's an ointment type product, it is greasy and doesn't absorb right away into your face, which takes a bit getting use to. My pillow cases though have not been stained at all. That is my biggest complaint, but I will not be buying expensive night creams that don't work as well as this. I love that I can put it ANYWHERE on my face, even the delicate eye area and I have no problems.

My son is a swimmer, spending an average 3 hrs/day in the pool 6 days/wk, year round. He has very fair skin - no blemishes at all but is sensitive to chapping/irritation. Depending on the particular pool and the length of expoure, his face would sometimes become extremely red and chapped - like a bad sunburn. He started putting aquaphor on before he went in the pool, and it has significantly help protect his skin - he doesn't have the extreme post-pool irritation, and his skin is generally less dry. It is heavy and greasy - and it would not be suitable for him to use as a daily moisurizer or post-swim moisturizer. But it works very well as a protectant, and I would also use it as a therapeutic ointment for extremely dry/cracked hands/feet, etc.

I STARTED WITH THE TUBE (SMALLER VERSION) AND DIDN'T HAVE A LOT OF CONFIDENCE WHEN I SAW IT WAS LIKE VASELINE. BUT I TRIED IT BECAUSE OF THESE REVIEWS(THEY REALLY HELP) I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH CHAFING IN MY FEMALE AREA. AND LET ME TELL YOU ITS NOT VASELINE , IT MOISTURIZES AND GETS RID OF ITCH AND BURNING. I NOW BUY THE LARGER SIZE AND USE NIGHTLY BEFORE I GO TO BED. THE JAR LASTS ME ALL MONTH. WASHES OUT EASILY ALSO. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

      Comments about Aquaphor Healing Ointment, 3.5 oz:

      I've had eczema since childhood. Some years it's almost nonexistent, some years it's bad. I used to use Eucerin in the winter to protect against or soothe my eczema, but found it too thick and greasy. Aquaphor works great -- a thin layer of the stuff moisturizes just as well as a gob of Eucerin and leaves your skin soft, not oily or slick. It also has no smell. In the winter, I put it on the driest patches of my skin after the shower; all-over use or using it during other seasons might be a bit too much.

          Comments about Aquaphor Healing Ointment, 3.5 oz:

          I first learned about Aquaphor when my mother was bed ridden. We used it on pressure points on her body to prevent bed sores. My husband gets cracked skin on his feet in the winter, a few applications heals it right up. We use it on my infant son's exema, I've used it for chapped lips, it's great to moisturize my legs after shaving, and I use it as a barrier when using self tanners too so my elbows and knees won't get orange. If I have dry skin anywhere, I put some on at night and everything is soft in the morning. There is nothing better for a variety of uses. It is heavy and greasy, and lasts a long time on your skin, but it does it's job wonderfully.

            This is fantastic! I will definitely always have a jar of this around. It is good for healing up burns, scrapes, cuts, sunburns, etc - SO much faster than anything else. It is also nigh-upon miraculous for healing rough, chapped, or scaly skin. It is the best for chapped lips, winter hands, rough patches of skin, etc. I have even used it as a face cream. All-around great product.
