dry PIHAnti-AgingBlackheads+ 4
I LOVE THIS

I have very dry skin on my hands. It got so dry that it'll turn red and start to bleed. When it will heal it will form brown scabs all over my arms. I tried many creams and lotions such as Nivea, Petroleum Jelly, Prescription Cream, etc. I went to my doctor and she recommended this to me and it only took a couple of days to heal. I been using this for 7 years. I also use it on my lips and it keeps them hydrated. It is a bit greasy so I only apply this during night time. I wake up with nice and soft hands.

dry EczemaAnti-AgingBlackheads+ 1
My holy grail

The absolute only product that will consistently alleviate my dry skin or eczema-induced misery. It cures my dry skin overnight, and while it doesn't reduce or eliminate my eczema, it keeps the misery at bay, which is always appreciated. My absolute go-to for hands and lips in winter.

combination AcneAnti-AgingBlackheads+ 4
Heals and protects compromised skin; regular use on acne-prone skin will cause problems

Overall, Aquaphor is a fantastic product when used as intended. Easily obtainable and very affordable, it promotes healing and provides protection for dry, irritated, raw, and/or post-procedure (laser) skin. When I'm desperate for skin relief or wound healing, Aquaphor is my default.

It is an occlusive and contains several comedogenic ingredients, so extended use on the face is not ideal if acne is a concern. I apply it only to targeted areas.

Its consistency is similar to Vaseline, so home/nighttime use is best. Be aware that it will (at least temporarily) stain clothing and linens; I've successfully treated some stains and noticed others fade away on their own through regular laundering over time.
