Recently my lips got really chapped, red, itchy, and were peeling. I went to my dermatologist who told me I had most likely become allergic to my lip balm, and gave me a sample of Vaniply to use instead. It cleared up my allergic reaction, and it hydrated, healed, and protected my lips. I still use it in lieu of lip balm. I was using high end, natural lip balm, so it wasn't a chemical or fragrance sensitivity (they were fragrance free). I don't think I would use this anywhere else on my body unless I had extremely scaly, flaky, dry skin. Basically I think this is better than petroleum jelly, and I would use Vaniply in place of that. It is heavy, greasy, and kind of waxy, which to me makes a bad lotion. But it is a great protective barrier, and it moisturizes very well.

Good for dry skin

Vaniply is good but wish that drugstore would stock the tub version (13 oz) also. The tube is rather expensive (though very useful) and stocking up on both can lessen the pinch.

    This product is great! Really moisturizes without that greasy/sticky feel to it. I also love that it is fragrance free, so there are no strange or strong smells after use! I love it for my dry hands right before bed, works great on dry feet too!

      Comments about Vaniply Ointment for Sensitive Skin, 2.5 oz:

      This is really a great moisturizer. I use it on my face and hands (less in the summer, more in the winter). I tend to get Rosacea breakouts and this does not irritate my skin, but it gives it the moisture barrier I need to help keep things calm. It is thick, so what I usually do is apply it to my hands and then pat it onto the face - a little bit goes a long way! I've tried a lot of moisturizers and this is the only one I've stuck with...

      Comments about Vaniply Ointment for Sensitive Skin, 2.5 oz:

      This was recommended by my dermatologist for my lips. I have atopic dermatitis & eczema. Sometimes when I think my lips are chapped, they may just be having an eczema attack. This ointment heals my lips sooner and is soothing. I have also used on eczema on my eyelids and neck with good results. Yes, the tube is larger than carrying a chap stick. I squeeze some into a small container (travel size) to keep in my handbag.

      Comments about Vaniply Ointment for Sensitive Skin, 2.5 oz:

      Best used when your skin is damp after bath or shower. Use a fairly small amount and smear it over the skin, let it set for about 5 minutes, then follow with a coat of your normal skin lotion (my favorite is Curel Sensitive Skin Remedy) which helps it soak in and feel less greasy. Also great as a lip balm - just a tiny drop is all you need. Aquaphor and vaseline make my skin really itchy & flaky but Vaniply works well. This product was recommended to me by my allergist and he was absolutely right. Would be nice if drugstore.com carried the monster size jar.

        Comments about Vaniply Ointment for Sensitive Skin, 2.5 oz:

        Although this is greasy, when you have eczema, that's what you need. My skin absorbs oils super quickly so I need something really thick. What I love about this over aquaphor (what most other eczema sufferers use) is that the finish is less shiny & more soft. It's perfect for me under make up (I get eczema on my face so I need something to moisturize but still allows me to use make up on top of it to hide the redness). Other than the fact that I wish it was natural & organic so it was more eco-friendly, I love this!

            We use this product upon doctors advice for our 16 mo. old grand-daughter who has severe eczema problems. It is less greasy than vaseline or aquaphor, yet still provides a good barrier to hold moisture in skin...absorbs quickly, leaving skin smooth and soft.

              I had dried chapped lips for 3.5 months. Nothing would help. Cracked and bleeding. Then my dermatologist recommended vaniply. NO chapstick. This healed me within 2 days!!! I love it and will never use anything else.
