Works for Me Wednesday: Miracle in a Tube

I love Wednesdays. Well, not really. Wednesdays are hard days in our office, so I don't TOTALLY love Wednesdays. But I do love me some "Works-for-Me Wednesday" ideas over at Rocks in My Dryer.

There are few things I can't live without, but here is one:

Aquaphor is THE best invention EVA'! It has the look and feel of Vaseline, but it is way better. I use it for everything. I never leave home without it!
I put it on my lips every night before I go to bed or on those rare "no make-up" Saturdays. I use it as lotion when my hands are really dry. I use it as a "night cream" by putting a little dab under each eye at bedtime. It helps keep that fragile skin supple and less-wrinkly. Concealer goes on better, too. It's great on skin abrasions and helps them heal more quickly. I even used it in place of Preparation H once! Aquaphor is also used in treatment of skin following laser resurfacing.
It is inexpensive, lasts forever, and comes in small purse-sized tubes or big ole tubs. There is a "baby formula" made for diaper rash and chafed skin, but as far as I can tell, the ingredients are the same.
Simply put, Aquaphor is a miracle in a tube, and it works for me!

I love it when a product works. I also love it when someone like you raves about it to others. I'll go check it out, I certainly will.

Have a fabulous day!

I'll have to try it, for sure!

Sherry said...

How cool! :D I'd never even heard of it. I'll have to try and find it.

Have a great WFMW!

My question...if you put it on your hands, does it soak in or stay on top of the skin like vaseline? My hands get dry, raw, cracked in the winter. However, I can't work with greasy vaseline feel on my hands.

I totally agree! My girls get dry spots on their little faces in the winter - an evening application keeps them soft and sweet!

Hmmm...I might have to try that out. My hands get sooo dry sometimes.

I love this stuff, it has been a lifesaver in our house. I didnt know you could use it under your eyes though, great idea!!!

You my dear are hilarious! I love to listen to Dr. Graham on the radio, I live in Saginaw (N. FW) and it doesn't make sense to travel all that way to church for me, lol. but I work with folks who go there. I found you by way of noticing the Prestonwood on your comment to Cardboard testimonies at Crystal's blog.
I attended the Christian Writers conference sponsored by Roaring Lambs - were you there?

I found you through your comment on angie's blog. I loved your honesty. I hurt for all the losses you have felt. I didn't read much of your blog besides the "about me" section, but from reading just that you sound like an incredible person.
