Most Helpful Positive Review A Miracle Ointment
I have suffered acne for 35 years now. With middle age causing scarring cystic acne and a three year continuous regimen of antibiotics and cycling Accutane, I have developed acne prone skin that is both flaky dry and super sensitive. Someone told me to try Aquaphor for my peeling eyes, but I also decided to use it as a spot treatment for both cystic and small milia-based comidones (pimples). I didn't have much to lose with completely out-of-control skin.
Well... what do you know? It cleared my small pimples and expedited the life of my cystic acne spot on my chin. I'm addicted to this miracle and shockingly inexpensive product. It has become a staple of both my morning and evening skin routine.
Most Helpful Critical Review No, never again!
I was using this ointment for years. Once I switched to Cerave and back to this, I noticed a few differences:
Compared to the Cerave this did not sink in, like at all! I used it on my severely dry legs and I would have to wait for ever for this to soak in. Not only that, but after it soaked in my skin would become unbelievably itchy, like real bad. After comparing this to the Cerave ointment I noticed that Aquaphor has alcohol on the ingredient list, which must have been sucking all of the moisture out of my skin? I made the switch to the Cerave healing ointment and have never looked back. This was very greasy and did not soak in well. I would not repurchase this.

I used to have a terrible problem with the corners of my mouth cracking and bleeding. It seemed like nothing was working, but since using this I haven't had that problem in months. It was able to heal cracks in my lips literally overnight.
And for everyone saying "this is overpriced petroleum jelly" you are straight up wrong. This has lanolin in it, a key ingredient in healing your skin. Petroleum jelly doesn't do anything to heal your skin, all it does is create a barrier to lock in moisture. This stuff is 100% worth the money.
Great for tattoo healing
Meg from Atlanta
I have a very large tattoo in progress (about 55 hours in so far) and this stuff is a lifesaver. Once I can start moisturizing this is my go to. It makes it feel so much better and keeps it healthy!
Add on top of La Mer
Winter from Washington
If you love Creme De La Mer like I do, you can stretch it out even longer by layering a bit of this on top at night. Perfect for my winter eczema on my hands too. I can't live without it.
Great,always keep on hand.my dermatologists recommendations

Jd from As
I feel like it goes without saying but this product is amazing! Literally don't even think twice, go buy this product because you can use it for literally almost anything. I personally use it for my lips and any dry patches I might find on my face and it's incredibly hydrating and lasts long! Cannot recommend this enough!
If you have dry skin, drop what you're doing and go get this
Syd from Shreveport, Louisiana
My skin has recently gotten SO DRY. My lips have been chapped 24/7 and my face and even eyelids where peeling. I tried many many moisturizers and none of them made the problem go away..I picked this up one day for my lips and loved it. So much that I decided to give it a try on my face one night and WOW, all my problems were solved the next day. My face has been so soft and smooth and never dry anymore since using this. It even makes my foundations look better. I got a new "hydrating" foundation that still looked matte on my dry skin... I thought using this underneath would make it too oily but it made my skin look flawless and so natural. No more dry/matte skin! In love with this product and its so cheap. You can't go wrong!
Great for healing

This product was recommended to me by my dermatologist when I had extremely dry edges around my lips that wouldn't even allow me to open my mouth without pain I tried EVERYTHING in the books and this has cured it for me since then. I LOVE IT everyone must have in their home or even on the go!

Lina from Florida
This stuff was recommended to me by a doctor to treat my keratosis pilaris. I can see a noticeable difference in my skins overall health and it glows
Jenny from Augusta
I work in a place where I use my hands alot, touching and holding different kinds of fabric, and that makes my hands dry up fast and can sometimes cause blisters. This is the only healing ointment that works the fastest for me. When my hands feel irritated from being dry, I put on a layer of this and it quickly takes away the irritation and heals the cracked skin immediately.
When in doubt, use aquaphor
Alex from USA
My family always uses this for dry lips, irritated skin and cuts. It's a true miracle worker.
#1 choice for tattoos
JAB from Hesperia, Ca
This is always the after cream that I have used after I get a tattoo. It does the job and helps hydrate my skin and create a barrier so nothing get on it.
Nini from Aurora co
Great on my face and feet
Katie from Michigan
This product is basically just Vaseline with a different name and at a higher price. It is by no means an "ointment." Save your money and buy regular Vaseline. I would not buy this product again.
Better than expensive skin care treatments!
Kalexandra from Woodbridge VA
I had extremely dry cracked (overall awful and painful) skin due to the recent cold front. I bought this out of desperation, not wanting to drop an enormous amount of $$ on higher end products and I am so glad I went this route! My skin was infinitely better overnight. This is definitely something to only be used overnight or when you won't be moving/touching things for a long period. It was completely absorbed by morning, but is not something to throw on first thing then go about your day. The texture felt similar to vaseline, so I only recommend for extremely dry skin, not every day use. Overall, I will be buying this every winter!
MsShadow from Palmdale,Ca
Aquaphor I agree is a overpriced petroleum jelly. It does its job and I like it for dry areas and lips sometimes. I would recommend it for a refreshing application of dry areas and it will work great none the less.
The Only thing I will use on a healing tattoo
