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.

I liked it better than petroleum jelly and will use it on my hands and feet at bedtime in the winter. Does soften the skin, but is too greasy to use all the time.

    Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

    This is the ONE of two moisturizers that are going to become your best friends if you are on Retin - A micro. If your skin gets chapped crusted or cracked you need to stop retin -a for a few days use this ointment 3 - 4x a day washing face only at night until your skin returns to normal. When it does give it a week before you start using the retin- a again. This ointment also works wonders on new tattoos keeps from the ink scabbing over and falling off and from fading.

    Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

    I was receiving chemo therapy at NIH and an effect of my treatment caused my feet and legs to swell. Swell so badly they cracked and blisters formed on the outside of my skin. The blisters subsequently burst, leaving 2"-3" raw patches. The wound specialists used this product every day on these sores for about 2-3 weeks, and the raw patches healed completely. I will NEVER be without this product in my medicine cabinet.

    Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

    My skin doctor put me on this product after I developed some sort of skin dryness and spotting on my lower legs.

    I was really disgusted with the product at first--it so reminded me of Vasaline--which I could never stand at all...but you know I have been using this for many months now and it has helped my very serious skin problem along with a medical cream that I had to use.

    Truth be told --Prior to this --I was using some og the BEST lotions available and I tried them so I know of what I say. This out did them all on my serious skin issue ! It is the Best.
    Now I would tell you that if you are having a dry condition try this and you won't be disapointed because it works.

    I cannot use it at bed time because it is quite heavy and greasy initially. I apply it when I first wake up before I get out of bed...and re-apply during the time I am awake if needed.

    You also might want to find a small flat knife or wood spade to get it out of the jar as it is very thick and will get under your nails.

    Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

    I live in desert and its great all year round for dry skin. I use after each shower/bath in winter and ocassionally in summer if skin becomes dry from hot weather. I would like for it to be thinner but it does absorb well and if not I wipe off with damp towel. It could be that I apply too much but i love the feel of it and really good for feet/heels. Softhen hands and then cover with gloves or socks.

          Comments about Aquaphor Original Ointment, 14 oz:

          My podiatrist gave me some samples and when I applied the ointment on my hands I thought, "YUK..this is greasy! However, in no more than 15 minutes it is absorbed and actually leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. My elbows were in terrible condition because I am in bed allot due to a medical condition. The roughness is gone, the pain is gone and they are smooth again. I apply Aquaphor to my hands, elbows and feet before I go to sleep. Vaseline does not work because it just stays on the top layer of skin. I feel Aquaphor works more as a humectant and it is not expensive considering what it did for me. I tried VERY expensive creams and lotions but NOTHING worked nearly as well. I make sure I never run out of it and keep a bucket of it on my night stand,

            This works well for chapped skin but no better than Vaseline petroleum jelly which is much cheaper. I should have know when I read the ingredients but decided to try it anyway. With that said it is good for chapped lips, dry skin etc. It's very greasy and shiny though.
