Aquaphor® Healing Ointment
- "I use Aquaphor for all kinds of things like dry skin, chapped lips, or as a diaper ointment for my baby. My hands get bad dry patches in the winter and this helps way better than any lotion. It is also good for small cuts and scrapes. " in 2884 reviews
- "My son has such sensitive skin and once I got this and started using it it cleared his eczema up within days. His legs would get so dry this would help seal in the moisture after getting a bath!" in 509 reviews
I work at a daycare so I wash my hands every 5 minutes it seems like so they crack so frequently and this product brings them back to life overnight. Its so hydrating and it doesn't have a scent so it doesn't trigger my headaches. I love it and i recommend to anyone who's hands dry frequently (like during the winter).

I use this stuff for everything. Anytime I have chapped lips this works wonders better than anything I’ve used on my lips before (including petroleum jelly, which I swore by for years before discovering this a few years ago). I also use this if I have dry heels or elbows and I use for all new tattoos. The only complaint I have about it is that it is too thick and greasy to use as a hand moisturizer.
I live in Michigan, and by the time winter starts I have dry, red, scaly, and extremely cracked hands (to the point where I had to take ibuprofen the pain was so bad.) This is the first year I have tried this healing ointment, and it took care of the problem, and believe it or not, within that week. Anytime my hands absorbed it, I just put more on. I couldn't believe the difference. A++ product.

I bought this at the recommendation of my tattoo artist. I applied it after my shower and massaged it into my tattoo. Within two days, my tattoo was healing nicely and I found that it also helped with the itching. I highly recommend it for anyone who just got a tattoo. I also use it for when my lips are chapped and to help any minor open wounds.
I'm covered in tattoos and obviously I have tried just about every cream you can think of to help heal my tattoos. This cream is by far the best cream I have ever used. It goes on smooth and it doesn't take much. I almost feel like my skin is craving this because right when I put it on my skin soaks it up. This is the only cream that HEALS MY TATTOO IN ONE WEEK. I was able to swim and tan after a week. It started to peel the 3rd day which usually doesn't happen until like the 6th day. It has enough ingredients in it to keep your tattoos looking fresh and not faded. They look more vibrant like it's still brand new. I highly recommend this product to all the newbies out there with fresh tattoos. I added my recent tattoo I got in the beginning of March. It looks like I just got it huh? With this lotion yours would look like that too. :)

Stick to the old school balm for tattoos and it works and has always worked like a dream!! The healing results have never failed me and for the price it is for such a big container you can never go wrong with it!!! If you need something for your tatts to help them heal this is your partner!!!! I recommend highly. #tattoo #tattoos #tatt
This is my go to diaper rash cream or wounds or chapped lips ( not using the same container obviously cause that would be gross lmfao ) but it’s clear and moistures. My kids both have very sensitive butts so this helps so so so much it literally heals in a day or less it’s some fast acting ointment. I’ve been obsessed since 2015

If you have tattoos of any size that itch like crazy! I honestly say this is going to be the best thing you can every do for them. Not only did it help with the itch but also helped my tattoos not to flake! It added an extra layer of protection and I even feel make my tattoos stay darker during the fading process
This was recommended to me a few separate times by different tattoo artists stating they prefer this over the treatments specifically made for post tattoo care. It’s a lot cheaper than the other brands and, using this product, I’ve never had any issues with my tattoos during the healing process.
Let me start off by saying that Aquaphor, would have to be my number one healing ointment to go to. It really works, unlike most other lotions and ointments I have tried and it's results are quicker than most others as well. It moisturizes excellently, but the only downside is that it leaves a very greasy feel to the spot that you applied it too (that's why I'm rating it a 4 instead of a 5). Not only can you use this ointment for cracked or dry skin, but also for diaper rash as well (so, yes, it can be used on all ages). The fact that it is scent free, also makes it the perfect gender neutral lotion pick; so if you have both guys and girls in your house you won't have to buy a different brand of scented lotion for the girls than for the guys. In this case, you'll only have to buy one bottle of Aquaphor for both to share (I say this because I know, from experience, that some guys can think that certain lotions/ointments smell "too girly".)
