|Eucerin Aquaphor Healing Ointment Review|
I have tons of these lil tubes trawled around the house and in different handbags, for a purpose. Eucerin Aquaphor Healing Ointment is a non-scented multi-use greasy ointment that can cure a lot of woes.
This water-free ointment creates the ideal environment to support the recovery process of dry, damaged or irritated skin. The active ingredients Panthenol and Bisabolol are clinically proven to support the skin's normal functions. It also contains Glycerin to moisturise and strengthen the skin barrier. Other ingredients include Petrolatum, Cera Microcristallina, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol.
Many have compared this to cheaper Vaseline. Personally, I can't tell the difference between the two products due to the petroleum content, although I do prefer the tube packaging of Eucerin Aquaphor Healing Ointment as opposed to the unhygienic Vaseline tubs.
Here's a list of uses:
1. Dry, chapped, cracked and irritated skin
2. Lip Balm
3. Treated skin eg. after laser therapy, chemical peels, dermabrasion
4. Foot salve for dry calloused feet
5. Hand & cuticle cream
6. Psoriasis, as a protective skin barrier
This is a sticky ointment and so I would advise using small amounts of this during the day time to avoid getting things stuck on the ointment. This product also contains mineral oil and petroleum so use caution if used on the face if you are particularly acne-prone. During the winter, you might want to use this in conjunction with a stronger moisturiser.
Top tip: Before bed, apply this liberally on your hands and feet, protect with gloves and soft socks while you sleep. You will wake up with super soft tips and toes!
Overall I do love Eucerin Aquaphor Healing Ointment and I would repurchase this product once I've run out!
