So What's An Aquaphor? Find Out Below & Enter To Win A Gift Basket PLUS $100 Visa Gift Card!

{ Tuesday, November 17, 2009 }

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Aquaphor.

Yes, this is a compensated review from BlogHer and Aquaphor, BUT! I would have totally written it anyway because I am in love with this product. In fact, I owned so much of it already that when I received the free samples I'm supposed to be reviewing, I gave them to my pregnant friend so that she could learn the joys of a diaper cream that doesn't smell AND that doubles as a heal-all for baby's skin.

That should be my review right there, but I'll actually go ahead and say more.

Growing up, my mom used the same diaper cream that everyone used. (I can actually conjure up that smell in my mind if I think about it.) When I got pregnant, I just assumed everyone still used smelly creams, and I was resigned to using them myself.

Until!

The day after we returned from the hospital with our darling daughter, and my visiting mother-in-law asked if I'd heard of Aquaphor.

"NO! WHAT'S AN AQUA FOR?" I replied, thinking I was clever. Because I was covered in spit-up and boob juice and quite possibly my own drool. I don't think my MIL was half as amused as I.

She explained that Aquaphor is the only thing her daughter will use because it is awesome AND completely odorless. And then just in case I wanted to try it, she went out and got us some.

I do not know if I am capable of writing what it's like as a new mother, freshly back from the hospital in a shocked-and-awed stupor, to use a product that just works.

Personally, it's not like anything went wrong when I got home...I just couldn't tell if I was doing anything right, either:

Is she eating enough? Am I holding her okay? Is she sleeping too much? Do I need to wake her up to change her? Is she too hot? Too cold? Is it okay that she fell asleep here instead of there? Should she be wearing a hat?

So the first time I saw the faint red marks around Eve's thighs where her diaper gathers, I knew enough to say, "Okay, this is not good." But I didn't know if that's what I was supposed to use the Aqua-for. (HA! I crack me up!)

I opened the jar and was relieved that there was no scent at all. I dabbed my finger into it and was relieved that it wasn't gross or greasy. I put a little bit on Eve's red marks, and then just hoped for the best.

Not much later, when she needed to be changed again, I didn't know what to expect. But you can imagine my astonishment when her red marks were totally gone. The truth is, I felt like Florence Nightingale. I was a healer! Something was wrong with my baby and I used the right thing and then the thing that was wrong wasn't wrong anymore! I AM A GREAT MOTHER! TA-DA!!!

(Yes, it was really the magic of Aquaphor but I will totally take the credit.)

But then? IT GOT BETTER!

One day while breastfeeding, I was staring at Eve's face, wondering when the skin on her forehead would heal. (Newborns go from being in fluid to being on dry land, and their skin can get/stay very dry as it "sheds" its in-womb properties. Regular grown-up moisturizers are not good for baby skin, and even gentle lotions aren't so good for babies' faces.) I looked to my side table and noticed the tube of Aquaphor just sitting there. I wondered...

The label said it protects and relieves chapped skin, so I figured I'd give it a shot. LO AND BEHOLD. Obviously it didn't clear up her dry skin in one shot, but regular application seemed to make it better. (Of course, her skin was a little shiny for a while, what with the ointment glistening on her forehead, but whatever. I'll take "glisten" over "red and flaky" any day.)

But once I realized what a miracle salve Aquaphor was, I started using it for everything. Sometimes Eve will still get pink patches of dry skin on her face, and I'll dab some Aquaphor on them and they clear up right away. (Note: VERY helpful for photos!!!) I smear the Aquaphor all over her legs when they get really dry and baby moisturizer just won't cut it. I also use Aquaphor to protect her skin from further damage/inflammation when she scrapes herself with her fingernails (which happens because I am still not very good at clipping them, whatever). I even use it on my hands when they get chafed (from my obsessive hand washing and sanitizer using -- it is flu season after all!).

And again, for the record? ALL of this was true before they ever sent me a single sample. Lucky for you, because now it's your turn to benefit!

Love it, Aquaphor is Aqua for--I've used Eucerin forever and Aquaphor now and then. It is the BEST overnight pedicure-in-a-sock treatment ever. It's probably good in gloves, too, but I can't sleep with gloves on. I'd feel like Mickey Mouse. Or a mime. Who could sleep like that? Still, Aquaphor in cuticles, elbows, etc. is heaven.

carmen said...

Fortunately I don't have to use it often, but sometimes if my hands are really chapped (during the winter) I'll slather it on. Another good use is if the tip of my nose gets scratchy from blowing my nose, I'll dab a bit on!

I would love to try these products on my super sensitive little boy! We are constantly fighting diaper rash because he is just so sensitive.

Candice said...

I love all of Eucerin products from their suntan lotion to Aquaphor. Aquaphor is fabulous on cracked lips. It's a must buy! Aquaphor Shampoo is terrific too. I use it on both of my children ages 1 and 3 years old.

Marika said...

I would be selfish and use non-baby stuff for me and my skin that is cracking from the dry cold in Alaska. And be giving and wonderful with the baby stuff to my friend who is due Dec. 2. Oh, and the gift card is all mine - aka the house that is a money pit.

Stevie said...

I absolutely LOVE Aquaphor products. In the winter months, I pretty much slather my entire body with it. If I had the means, I would fill a bathtub with it and dive right in.

Broken Bindings said...

Aquaphor and Eucerin really rock! I love how the Aquaphor keeps my elbows from getting too scratchy, especially in wintertime,

Caroline said...

My mother introduced me to Aquaphor. I'm rough on my feet - live barefoot and in flipflops. This stuff works miracles on heels.

Sara said...

I use AquaFOR cradle cap to get rid of the dry-flaky-redness on the baby's head. And as Kristy said, glisten(ing) baby mohawks are much better than red dry flaky baby head.

A. said...

Well, I'm due with my first in April, so I'm ALL about learning and finding the products that are must haves. It would be awesome to have a kit like this at the ready when we come home from the hospital.

Great review. I'll buy it even if I don't win! :)

Dana said...

My mom recommended Aquaphor for my husband who has been dealing with extremely dry skin for the past two years. He was amazed at how quickly it worked for him (even better than the prescription he received from the dermatologist). And now that we're in the chillier time of the year I've swiped his bottle to use on my hands, feet and cuticles. Aquaphor is Aqua-for all your moisturizing needs!

Amyella said...

I want Aquaphor because I have a brand-spanking new 6 week old nephew (the first great-grandchild in our family!) and I want to be the greatest aunt in the history of aunts!!

Daisy JD said...

I'd use it all on my dry, dry hands.

Christina said...

I use it on my daughter. She seems to have inherited my hubby random skin conditions, so I use it to soothe her skin. She doesn't seem to mind it and it works so well! I've used dabs of it here and there myself for little spots of dry skin. This stuff is great!

Lou said...

My kids have horrible winter skin and I've been using Aquaphor for years when things get really bad. I slather it on their hands at bed time and then put socks on over their hands and in the morning, they look significantly better. I swear by this stuff and buy it in bulk at Costco.

redvipervenom1 said...

Love Aqua-For dry lips. Works so much better than anything else I've tried.

Christine said...

I've been using Eucerin and Aquaphor for years. Never even knew they had baby products. Thank you! Thank you.

bethany said...

I would ship that gift basket right on over to my fiance's sister who just had a baby, along with a link to this review. I might send her the link right now, actually.

boosted98mitsu said...

I use Aquaphor ALL the time...nothing leaves my skin feeling healthier. I take care of my niece and I always have it on hand for her. She has had dry skin since she was a baby, something I think she has inherited...poor thing! She is always asking for us to put some on her. She calls it "milk". We aren't sure where she got them from but she started calling it that and we kept trying to give her a cup of milk then finally she went and got it and said milk! I guess it looks like milk to her!

wallysworld said...

I plan to use Aquaphor with my daughter after she is born in December. Everyone raves about this product!

Janice said...

I would slather it all over my poor boys legs this winter so he doesn't scratch his little eczemaed legs until they bleed

amy said...

As I constantly get colds or have allergies, I use Aquaphor on my nose all the time. It totally gets rid of the flaky skin that you get from blowing your nose too much. It doesn't clog your pores either, which is a total bonus. Who wants to trade in non-chapped for clogged pores? Not me... this gives you non-chapped and no clogging. Yay Aquaphor.

Living in Chicago, I am one dry chick during the winter. I would use Aquaphor on hands, lips, and feet.

Christina said...

I would love to try this on my face. I've noticed that even after my regualar moisturizer my face is a dry and it shows.

Lisa said...

I am 32 and have never experienced a sunburn in my life, until this past summer. Oh my goodness, it was brutal. With the suggestion of a friend, Aquaphor literally saved my hide. No other moisturizer helped like it did. Now I use it regularly when my skin needs boost of moisture.

THE MAIKS said...

I have never tried Aquaphor, but it sounds great. I would probably use the shampoo/baby wash and calming cream the most. Would love to try on my three kids 4,2, and 8 months!

SeattleD said...

I had not used Aguaphor until my daughter just had her new baby 2 months ago. I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of stink, and now thanks to all the tips and comments, I am going to try it on my helplessly dry skin. A big gift basket would help out enormously! And THAT is what Agua is for!

tiffany said...

I used Aquaphor when I was taking Accutane and my skin was WRECKED. It was the only thing that worked to keep me moisturized.

Crys said...

I use aquafor for my issues with eczema but didn't know they had baby products. I'd love to use it on my 3 month old, she's getting skin issues as well!

Heather said...

I use it all the time on my lips... and in the winter it helps stop the constant chapped and cracking nose (I won't give specific's but I am sure you get the idea). I love the stuff.

April said...

we use it to cure cradle cap. thanks for the contest!

I've used it when I've gone hiking, walking, or running for that leg chafing! It's like butta!

Lisa G. said...

I have this dry raised bump thing on my leg that I have been looking for a solution to. Regular moisturizers just don't cut it. Used to love Eucerin when my skin was going through "rough patches"- get it?

Erin said...

I used the lip balm religiously, but haven't ever tried the other products. I will definitely check them out now.

Adrasteia said...

I recently had surgery and various things are now not at all like they were before. I figure this stuff might work for making my skin supple enough to stretch as I try to regain function and range of motion in my neck. If it works on other stuff, hey, it might!

Pooks said...

My son has a bad habit of picking at his lips, and we use Aquaphor on his lips.

Karen said...

Eucerin products are so great! My hands get really dry in the winter, so I usually use the lotion on a daily basis from about this time, through March. Great stuff.

mjb said...

Eucerin is the only lotion my husband will use, so Aquaphor would be great for us!

Anonymous said...

Wow we use Aquaphor on a daily basis in my house. Both my daughters have sever eczema and this is used inbetween there medicated creams. I love the sizes that you can get this in and have tubes of it everywhere. We also use Eucerin as well. I would love to win this as I spend tons of money on this product. thanks

Do want. I've been a longtime fan of Eucerin and we picked up some Aquaphor after or little one came along b/c she was perpetually chapped behind the knees. It's become a life saver for her cheeks as well, and I don't know what we'd do without it!

i seem to be in the minority here considering that i have never used aquaphor, but that is EXACTLY why i want to win! my dry skin would love to experience this miracle in a bottle. thanks for the contest!

Sara said...

OOh! I have incredibly dry skin as soon as summer is gone. I also have sensitive skin so Eucerin works great, but I would love to try the Aquaphor on some really dry patches! And I would probably have to share it with my friend who is expecting. The baby goods sound too good to pass up!

Nickname unavailable said...

Twice a day every day on my boy who has ezcema. It keeps the steroids away....

Sincerely, Stephnie said...

I use it on my 3 yr old with eczema. Works great!

Jill said...

I use it on my alomst 2-year-old's thighs, upper arms, and cheeks where she has dry skin (or eczema). It seems to stop her from itching and helps heal it up. I hadn't thought about using it as a diaper cream until now. I will try it on my newborn and 2 year old for that purpose, too!

Emily Emrick said...

I love aquafor! I use it at home for everything from dry hands to chapped feet, an alternative to chapstick and diaper rash cream (all seperate bottles, don't worry!). It's GOOD stuff!

Colby and Joanna said...

Aquaphor is perfect for chapped lips!

Swistle said...

My children, all five of them, ALL have skin issues related to dryness. And I have never tried Aquaphor. So what I would do with Aquaphor is USE IT. Only on the three younger ones, though---I have GIVEN UP on the two older kids.

Also, I would learn to spell it, so I wouldn't keep typing Aquafor the first time.

Kaleena said...

We use it to relive chapped skin from frequent hand washing. This stuff works!!!!

Tater and Tot said...

I love to use Aquaphor on chapped cheeks! It works great to treat already chapped faces and protect against the elements to prevent! What a great giveaway!!

Kristina said...

Aquafor is the best for my son's wintery dry, chapped skin. It fixes up his bad skin quickly! Its the best stuff ever!

James and Jack said...

I got so excited when I saw a giveaway for Aquaphor! My 3 year old son has horrible eczema and aquaphor is the only thing that works on his skin. No fragrances and it keeps in the moisture. We cover him in aquaphor head to toe twice a day. Needless to say- we go through two of the big jars a week! We love aquaphor!!

Kristy said...

Love Aquaphor. I was first introduced to this miracle cream when my second son was born with Epidermylosis Bullosa Simplex, a blistering skin condition. The nurses in the hospital used aquaphor on the dressings wrapped around his arms and legs. Within two days he was growing skin back. Since that day 6 1/2 years ago, we have used it on everything - diaper rash, rough feet, heat rash, dry skin, blister and scrapes. EVERYTHING!everything -

Denise said...

I love this product and have been using it since I had my first child 6 years ago. My youngest son has eczema on his legs and aquaphor works wonders!

Her Royal Highness said...

I have such sensitive skin and aquaphor is the only thing I can use. The other day my three year old got hold of it and rubbed down her toy box with it. She was soft but momma wasn't happy.

Susan said...

I'd use it in the cold winter when my skin gets all chapped!

I would use it for my sons eczema.

rrouth said...

Oooh, I've been an Aqua FOR user for almost twelve years now. My derma got me on it when my skin dried out from using acne medication. Oh, wow, does Eucerin rock. Now my baby gets it on her lips in the winter.

Oh man, aquaphor is like the all-purpose magical cream. I use it as everything from chapstick to hand lotion. It also works great on tiny scratches, minor sunburns, and those weird dry skin patches you get in the winter. It's works pretty fantastically on just about anything!

I think Aquaphor is awesome for exzema. When my son was a baby, he would get it terribly on his cheeks. I used aquaphor and it worked so well. I also use it on my lips when they are really chapped. I love that a little goes a long way as well.

AshburnMom said...

Aquaphor is GREAT for your skin when you’ve gotten a bit too much sun in the summer! Rub it on lightly throughout the day to keep it moisterized and minimize peeling! It doesn’t have a lot of extra “stuff” in it to irritate your skin and it really works to seal in the moisture – especially just after you’ve washed your face! Just a dab will do ya! ;)

sandra said...

We love Aquaphor around here. My mom and I have psorisis, and Aquaphor was the only treatment that helped with that miserable red, itchy, scaly skin.

Heather said...

I use is to smother it on my feet at night and wear little bootie socks to bed. In the morning my feet feel like a queens!

What a hilarious but true review! I too discovered the fleeting moment of competency that Aquaphor gave me as a new mom. My little one's diaper rashes would disappear in days if not hours of using this stuff.

In my business, we slather it on the faces we've done deep chemical or laser peels to aid in healing. Good on skin after a wax treatment too. For myself, my favorite thing is to dab it on my chapped lips.

I started using Aquaphor on my son's arms when he was little. He'd get these tiny white bumps and his arms would flake and itch so bad, especially after his bath. No matter what soap I used, he'd still be miserable. I'd layer on the Aquaphor after his bath and it worked fantastic. I even used it on my sandpaper elbows at night.

We used Aquaphor for diaper rash when the kids were little and still keep it stocked today. Great for the frozen cheek sydrome during the winter.

Tricia said...

We love aquaphor at our house - lather it on both of our girls...skin and lips! We use it all year 'round.

Aquaphor kicks Vaseline's butt. We use it for our daughter's diaper rash, as well as a moisturizer when our lips, feet and hands are dry.

We use Aquaphor for my daughters eczema (its the only thing she can use). I also love to use it for sore/dry/chapped noses during colds.... and it totally rocks on your feet at night time!

Aquaphor is great for those winter-chapped hands...very soothing

Aquaphor is the best for a dry-skinned, eczema-prone family like mine! Faces, hands, legs, bums...you name it!

Eunice said...

I use it for dry skin. After I moved from NY to CA, I developed really ashy dry skin so I would borrow my son's aquaphor. Works better than anything else!

My two favorite uses for Aquaphor:

** Massage into cuticles and nails to ease dryness and cracking

** Apply a thin layer at hairline when coloring hair to help avoid staining skin

I use it on my toddler girl's cheeks because they stay red in the winter. In reading the other comments, I need to start using it on my hands and cuticles.

Mindy said...

What an awesome giveaway!

I'd use it on my poor, dry hands! Ouch! It sounds like it would work wonders.

I would use it for the dry skin around my nose!! LOL

Nicole said...

I have used it in the past on my 3 children's skin. I'm due with our fourth in the spring, so I know more would come in handy!

Nancy said...

I would use it on my dry skin this winter, especially my elbows, hands and feet. It works real well if you deal with cracked skin.

Joy said...

It's great on chapped lips and to help wounds heal

I would love for my daughter to try Aquaphor for her bouts with eczema .. and would love to try it myself on my heels.

Crystal said...

Well I have used aquaphor for lots of things. I used it as a diaper cream, I used it to treat excema and just general dry skin. I have even used it to treat new tattoos! It really is a great product and I would love a chance to win!

Mindy said...

We love this for the rough patches of dry skin/excema that our boy gets as well as the large areas of dry skin across his back and tummy. It's great stuff! Our problem is that we only just found out about it when our friends gave us a teeny-tiny little sample tube. We're almost out!

What don't I use Aquaphor? From diaper issues, to putting it on around the nose during colds, to putting it on my daughter and putting it on my hands after all the handwashing of the daytime. I just can't live without it.

I have not had the chance to use Aquaphor, but would love to. I have a 23 month old with dry peeling cheeks, this winter has been harsh on her sweet face! I hope I win!!

momof 5 said...

we will devour that basket if we are the lucky ones! From a mom with dry lips and hands, to a teenage baskteball playing son with excema on his legs to my little ones. We are believers. And that, my dear, is what the Aqua(s) for!

Kelley & Gabriella said...

Oh man - do I need that this week!!!!!!!! My poor (almost) 2 year old has the driest, cracking hands for some reason. It just breaks my heart, but the samples from her peed are getting us by, but almost gone. My lips get super dried out (sometimes up to my nose - NOT cute!) just by turning on the heater in my car, and with a little one, it's unavoidable in this 6 degree weather! I have been putting Aquaphor all around my mouth and on my lips, on my daughters hands and all her dry spots as much as I can remember. I love that it soaks in quickly and that it is SAFE for my baby!! It has helped her so much and has stopped her hands from cracking and bleeding. :) I'm hoping I'll wake up w/ healed lips as well!!!

DG said...

I would use it on my dry knee caps and elbows. This would help a lot from the sound of it!

I used this on my cracked knuckles, sensitive ear piercings and dry chapped lips. I cant wait to use it on my baby when he's born in March!!

Anonymous said...

I love it. I use it for my chapped lips, severely chapped hands from all those diaper change washings, and on my daughters butt every time I change her. She never gets diaper rashes. It is a preventive as well as a healer.

I would use it to help with the dry skin I experience every winter.

I know I'm too late for the contest but dang I wish I had not missed this! You know how some people get tennis elbow? I have COMPUTER ELBOW from leaning my right elbow on the desk while I scroll through pages on the internet. It is so rough and chaffed right now that it hurts and snags on all of my clothing! Thankfully I just got paid so I am off to get me some of this miracle cream and hope for the best. Thanks for the informative review and I totally got the funny play on words hon LOL!!!

Mary said...

We totally already use Aquaphor (and Eucerin in general). Both our kids are extremely sensitive to dyes and perfumes - as are their parents. We pretty much use the Eucerin cream after baths, and the Aquaphor for chapped places, especially under/around little noses during cold season. Love it!

Mary said...

And yes, I know I was too late, but heck, I'll brag on Eucerin products any day.

Elizabeth said...

I would use it because my daughter has excema and has really dry skin!
