This review is from: Aquaphor Healing Ointment - 1.75 oz tube (Health and Beauty)
This could be the best beauty and skin care product I have ever tried because of its versatility, price, and most of all, efficacy. My doctor recommended this product to me when I had to go on Accutane. As we were discussing the potential side effects, she said that one thing was certain: I would suffer from the worst chapped lips I had ever experienced in my life. And to combat the worst chapped lips of my life, she had only one recommendation: Aquaphor.
Well, since then I don't go anywhere without it, even though I finished Accutane a few months ago. While I was on it, I couldn't believe how fantastic it was for my chapped lips. I put on a small dab onto my very dry lips several times a day. Even though it's basically a petroleum product, it has amazing staying power. My lips felt slick for hours after I applied, but not greasy.
Now that I'm not on Accutane, I still use it for my lips. But now that it's winter I slather it on all over my hands and on my cuticles a few times a day. If a random patch of dry skin turns up, I'll rub it in there, too. A few weeks ago I accidentally over waxed my upper lip area and developed a scab. I rubbed Aquaphor on there every night and it healed quickly and scarring appears to be minimal. This week I decided to put it on dry patches on my scalp to combat winter dandruff and it seems to be helping! This is an amazing product!
