I first became acquainted with this as a suggested use by my dermatologist to take care of a hives break out on my legs. I thought I would be scared for life, and after using this product my skin is mark free and as supple as a baby's. Now it's just a regular part of my life.

It's a bit on the thick side for use in the hot months, but it is a must for the winter! If you have a dry itchy spot, a paper cut, chapped or split lips - this is your life saver. It heals stuff fast, and it's uncompromised because is has no dyes or parfumes making it great for you if you have sensitive skin, and great for babies.

Yes, it'a a tad pricey - but it's worth every penny and lasts an age! Bargain hunt elsewhere, spend the money on this.

My dermatologist said that this was the best moisturizer for wrinkles. I can use it at night time, but during the day it is just too greasy. I can wear it during the day if I put foundation over it, but not if I'm just at home and not using foundation. I haven't used it on very dry places yet, b/c of the greasiness. I may still try when I really need it.

Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

This product recommended by my podiatrist for a really dry and hard cracked skin, he warned me it was greasy, but that does not matter IT REALLY WORKS. I saw improvement in the first treatment, and the dr. Gave me several prescription and non prescription products. Whats a little greasy hands etc.???

        I have problematic heels: very rough skin. The product is heavy and oily but I put it on and wear socks for a couple of hours before bed. It definitely helps.

            Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

            I have used this for my 2 toddlers ever since they were infants and it's the only effective ointment that keeps their skin from getting dry and scaly. I use this religiously in winter and at least once daily in summer too (indoor AC can be very drying. It has a very thick consistency, almost like petroleum jelly but I guess thats what you need to be so powerful at keeping dryness at bay! Highly recommended for babies.

            Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

            I bought this after watching Dr. Oz tout this on his show. It is not what I expected. It is so heavy reminds me of axel grease or something you would use on a car. If this comes in lotion form I think it would be better. This has a great water barrier and a little goes a long way so it will last forever.

              I don't like heavy greasy products but this works.
              Just this pass week they were talking about it on
              Dr.OZ and after seeing that show I ordered it. I like it but not for all over body. I use it on my feet and hands mostly. Have also used on elbows and
              knees.

              Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

              Ok I don't know if there is a real difference between Petrolatum (the active ingredient in Aquaphor) and Petroleum (as in good old Petroleum Jelly) but if it walks and quacks like a duck and cost is 200% higher "shoot the duck".

              It is slightly softer (less jell like) then Petroleum Jelly, and I am guessing that is from the other ingredients they put into it. Aquaphor is 41% Petrolatum whereas "Vaseline" Petroleum Jelly is 100% Petroleum (nothing added).

              I have used it for a few days and it doesn't seem to work any different than Petroleum Jellies I have used before. I will NOT be paying this much, ever again for something that my grandmother recommended.
