Aquaphor Healing Ointment Review & Giveaway

As my belly gets bigger, so do my problems.  I’m using the word “problems” loosely, but this babe has me experiencing things I didn’t know were possible: chaffing – and lots of it.

I’m a runner and have no plans of stopping while I’m pregnant, but know that I may have to adjust accordingly.  About three weeks ago, adjusting became my reality.  With warmer temperatures and inevitable shorts weather, I knew I needed to do something about the uncomfortable chaffing on my inner-thighs.  I tried all sorts of products (baby powder, Body Glide) before discovering Aquaphor Healing Ointment – and then my running life changed.

Aquaphor

Aquaphor Healing Ointment is specially formulated to create an ideal environment that protects and heals skin; it’s also free of fragrances (so important while I’m pregnant), dyes, and preservatives, making it gentle enough for all skin types.  What I like most about Aquaphor Healing Ointment is that it’s multi-use: I can use it for chaffing, dry feet/hands, minor burns, cracked lips, and more.  It’s not greasy and absorbs quickly into skin.  Athletes listen up – Aquaphor can be used for everything from chaffing, blisters, wind-burned skin, and saddle sores.  I can’t wait to try Aquaphor as a replacement to Body Glide at my next triathlon (hello, easy wetsuit removal).  I also had a chance to try (and fall in love with love) Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect; it’s SPF 30 (super important for outdoor activities in the summer) and seals in moisture to prevent dryness.  I’m a sucker for anything lip gloss/stick related but I’m also very picky about what I use and like.  Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect passed the running/sweating/longevity test.

Final Thoughts: If you’re looking for one product that does everything, Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Lip Repair are the way to go.  I couldn’t be more pleased with how well Aquaphor works with all aspects of my life (running, working out, bedtime, etc.).  Prices range from $6-$15 (depending on size) and can be found at various locations including Target, CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid, and local grocery stores.

You better believe I’ll be using Aquaphor when the babe arrives – it’s dermatologist approved and recommended by dermatologists, pediatricians, and moms!

  1. I have dry skin in general, all over, especially my lips! I’ve tried tons of different lip balms to remedy it, and got in some (literal) sticky situations). It doesn’t help that I have curly hair that has mind of it’s own and always gets stuck on sticky lips 🙁 Burts Bees has helped tremendously.

  2. I already follow you on Facebook 🙂

  3. Already follow you on Twitter as well 🙂

    Hi Mama! Another baby tip. Aqufor baby is equally magical, but for different reasons. It is great on the twinsies sensitive skin. I highly recommend picking up some for Poppy. XOXO

  111. I Use hydrocortisone or an antibiotic topical cream to help heal severely dry, cracked skin. Apply liberally and use a band-aid or gauze if necessary.

  121. following your blog on igoogle (Rose Marie)! I use cold cream daily, at the beginning and end of the day, mostly on my face, but sometimes my hands, too.

  122. I use body glide for prevention. I ran out the other night and oh my goodness did I get two horrible sores. I showed my running girlfriend and she told me to put aquafor on it to make it heal faster. I used it and it really helped with the pain and it healed fast! I never even thought to use it before running to prevent sores! I’m going to have to try that!
