Ahh, my beloved Aquaphor. I must spread the love and the knowledge about this holy grail of all holy grails. This is THE product that I cannot live without. I’ve used this every single day since the first day I bought it. If I am out of the house and I realize I forgot it, I have to go to a store right away and buy one. I have one next to my bed, in the bathroom, in the living room, at work and several in my purse. Obsessed, I tell ya.
About Aquaphor: It is made by Eucerin, a company known for its moisturizers and creams. There are 4 basic Aquaphor products – Healing Ointment (comes in various sizes), Lip Repair, Baby Healing Ointment and Baby Gentle Wash and Shampoo. The consistency is like a thicker Vaseline but let me tell you, this is a million times better than Vaseline.
Where to buy: Any grocery store, drugstore or big stores such as Wal-Mart or Target. The cheapest is the Lip Repair for $3.99 and I think the big tubs of the Healing Ointment are like $10 or less. The 14 oz tub will last you years.
I am obsessed with Aquaphor for two main reasons: 1) It moisturizes my lips and helps satisfy my OCD about moisturized lips. 2) It is extremely versatile and there are many uses for it.
What I’ve used Aquaphor for:
- Moisturize my lips all day and all night.
- Put on my dry feet at night then wear socks to bed. The next morning my feet are soo soft.
- Applied it over my new tattoo.
- Clean the eye makeup underneath my eyes.
- Dilute my MUFE Aqua Cream Shadow to make it easier to apply and work with.
- Put it on my cuticles.
- Put it on my nose if it’s raw from blowing it too much.
That’s just 7 uses for me (maybe more, I can’t think of any). There’s actually a ton of more uses for Aquaphor that you can find on this website.
I still remember when I first read about Aquaphor in a magazine and Lucy Liu swore by it. I hope that in 5 or 10 years, you’ll look back, remember this post and thank me for introducing you the most amazing product ever. Ever. Ever!!!
