Aquaphor Giveaway!!!

A few weeks ago, I wrote about my new found love for Aquaphor.

I was not paid for my post, nor did I expect anything to come out of it. I simply wanted to share my love of all things Aquaphor.

My posts automatically post to my Twitter and Facebook. The kind people at Aquaphor caught wind of that post through "the twitter" (as my dad used to call it) and sent me an email asking if I would be willing to do an official review of their product.

Since I've been having a secret love affair with Aquaphor, I immediately said I would LOVE to try some more product and do an official review for them.

They then told me that I could also hold a giveaway to share the Aquaphor love. YES. PLEASE.

After a few days of waiting, a package arrived in the mail. It contained this.



Not only did it contain Aquaphor product, but it also contained a $50 Visa Gift Card to be used however I  pleased! (I may or may not have gone to Joann Fabric and bought waaaayyyy too much fabric with it!)

Let me tell you. This package could not have come at a better time.

I had been sick for a few weeks prior to the package's arrival and my nose was dry and cracked from blowing my nose. My lips had split from being so dry from having to breathe out of my mouth. Not to mention, my skin was pretty dry and flaky from the dry winter months.



After just one application of the Healing Ointment, my nose felt so much better. It was no longer flaky and cracked. I could actually put a tissue to it without cringing from pain. My hands and forearms also felt a lot less tight and itchy from the dry skin. I'm telling you. This stuff is amazing.

Now, onto my lips. A few years ago, I blew myself up with the gas grill. (Don't ask....seriously.) Ever since then, I have had some scarring on my lips from the burns that I received from that accident. On occasion, the skin on those scars peel, tear, and bleed. Add a nasty head cold, in which I can't breathe out of my nose, and my lips became a hot mess.



After just two applications of the Aquaphor Lip Repair, my lips were feeling much better. The Lip Repair didn't burn my lips like some chapsticks do. It was very gentle. It helped heal the cracks in my lips and allowed my scars to heal. In fact, after using it almost constantly for the past week, the scars on my lips feel a lot softer and a lot less noticeable. YES!!! (the only downside is that a certain someone can't seem to keep his lips off of mine....cute at first, but kind of annoying after a while!) ;o)

So, here is the best part of all of this.

The kind folks at Aquaphor would love to give away a tube of their Healing Ointment, a tube of their Lip Repair, AND a $50 Visa Gift card to be used however you want! Isn't that sweet?!?!

So, here is how you enter.

Leave a comment below. Any old comment will do (but I would also love to hear your favorite Aquaphor product, if you have one). It's that simple.

I will leave comments open from right now until 9pm Thursday (4/19) evening.  Then I will use Random.org to choose the winner!

Also, for a 2nd chance to win, feel free to head over to my friend Amy's blog. She is holding the very SAME giveaway. Leave her some love and get yourself entered to win! You are welcome!


Also, for more info about Aquaphor, feel free to check out their Facebook page by clicking HERE.

In case it wasn't clear enough in this post, I was, in fact, compensated by Aquaphor for this post. I was given the Healing Ointment and the Lip Repair to review. I was also given a $50 Visa Gift Card. However, the opinions expressed are mine. 


This giveaway is only open to US Residents who are 18 years of age or older.

I don't have the product but it looks AMAZING! I would love to have the product. Glad the product came at the right time for you! Blessings to you!

Joe said...

I know my wife buys these products quite often so I'm sure she would love some more!

meredy338 said...

I haven't yet tried Aquaphor but I have the same nose problem when sick for more than 2-3 days! would also love to give the lip treatment a try

nicugradsmom said...

We have used Auqaphor since J was born. It is the only thing that we could use on his skin while he was in the incubator. Still use it for bottoms, knees, heck pretty much anywhere skin is dry!

ellybellylove said...

I haven't tried Aquaphor, but I would love to! Being students in the medical field and washing our hands VERY frequently, my husband and I both have very dry, cracked hands. We haven't found a product yet that works, so we would love to try this out!

Karen said...

I would love to try that as I have my Carmex right next to me! My lips are ALWAYS dry! Would love something to smooth them!

Hugs to you for everything you have been going through!

ajbarber3584 said...

Omg I LOVE the lip repair!! I had an allergic reaction to Carmex about a year ago my lips were crazy swollen, once the swelling went down, my poor lips were so dry and cracked I could barely talk. I went to CVS and tried the lip repair and in about a day my lips were just about healed!! It's seriously a miracle product!! I literally have a tube on my nightstand, one in my purse, one in my bag for work, and one in my car. I have some of their lotions as well but my big love goes to the lip repair!!

Mami2jcn said...

I've been using the advanced therapy healing ointment on my dry skin and it's been helping me a lot.

Thanks for the chance!

Girl, I LOVE me some aquaphor. It's a GODSEND for a mama with a scaly, rashy, eczema-elbow-patch boy like my sweet Aengus. It works so well that after 2nights of getting slathered with the stuff after his bath, his skin is smooth and perfect again. Do not enter me in the drawing, though. I have a huge container of it already that I gotta use up.

QueenRachel said...

Love, love, love aquaphor!!! Funny story... whenever I put it on my heels (dry & cracked from winter) my big, fluffy himalayan cat, Hosanna comes & licks it off my feet and out of the jar.

shyviolet said...

Love it works greaT on my sons skin

Shawna said...

I have used the lotion before, but not the lip repair! My oldest son has extremely sensitive skin. Doctor recommends he only showers every 2-3 days. However, a 9 yr old boy, heat, sweat, and baseball...NOT an option. SO, Aquaphor helps his skin out a lot! Now I'm gonna have to go try the lip repair :)

Angi said...

YES, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! Rylan's skin is SO bad in the spring/summer with eczema and Aquaphor is the only thing I have found that makes any kind of difference. I agree with its magic powers. I just hate how expensive it is - we go through a lot.

jacobcassie said...

We LOVE aquaphor over here! We started using it on our son's circumcision, then his entire body as a newborn. It's amazing. I can only imagine how great the lip repair is. Thanks for such a fun giveaway!

Danielle said...

I love aquaphor! I have two sons that battle eczema and it's been a lifesaver. I keep a very large tub of it on the changing table, you can find Aquaphor Baby Gentle Wash and Shampoo in my tub and the teeny tiny tubes of aquaphor in the diaper bag! I always recommend it my friends, with or without kids!

BlessedMommy said...

I love Aquaphor! I use their travel sized tube as a lib balm and it's the only thing that helps my lips! whoo hoo

Lindsay Partridge said...

I LOVE Aquaphor products! The traditional balm is great on chapped noses, just like you said Jill, and they also make a hand cream that I LOVE! Aquaphor works wonders on my poor little boy's eczema. If I put it on his rough spots before bed, by the next morning, his skin looks so much better. I would LOVE to win some Aquaphor because you get what you pay for and it's not cheap! :-)

Amy Bennett said...

Oh how we LOVE LOVE LOVE Aquaphor products! Everyone in my household suffers from excema, and I swear, it's the only thing that works! It also, I discovered recently, works wonders for getting EKG and tube sticker residue off. Go figure. ;-)

Auntie M said...

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try these products~ever since you first mentioned them. This post is hysterical, btw! Love your product review and hope you do more! Do you have to be random? Couldn't you just pick me?
I am on a truckload of meds (I have peripheral polyneuropathy, fibromyalgia, migraines, and psoriasis) and my skin is often dried out from all the meds I use. Plus I found this great all natural oinment for my fibromyalgia but my psoriasis doesn't like it so it keeps flaring up on my hands. *sigh* Hope your random thing chooses me! :-)

kah said...

Have been using aquaphor on my babies since they were born! It's amazing stuff!

Shrrbyrd said...

When I stress (which is all the time with work), my hands seem to crack and peel. Weird, huh! This healing ointment sounds so perfect, bringing relief to my hurting hands.

Tilley Brasfield said...

This is a comment.. :o

Teri said...

Here from Amy's blog! I love how long a tube of Aquaphor lasts! I've only ever used samples that I've gotten & it seems to last forever! I rub it on my cuticles because they get so dry!

FaythsMom said...

I also LOVE aquaphor!!! I love the dry skin therapy i wash my face with facewash and when i get out of the shower my face feels so dry so i rub some aquaphor on my face...I LOVE that it smells so good and it just takes a dab to feel so amazing and leaving skin so soft

LindseyB said...

My 5 month old has some pretty significant eczema and my pediatrician suggested I use the haling ointment after baths. It works great! We used to call her "lizard baby" because she was so scaley, but now if I keep up with the application, Aquaphor makes her all smoothe.

FreeIndeed said...

i'd love to try it too!

Mary Wagner Ritchie said...

Me too, me too...love Aquaphor! I have a special needs son that has very dry, scaley skin and it works like a charm. :)
Great product review. And yay for you and Joanns...whatcha gonna make?

Loraine said...

Aquaphor works great on my sons dry skin, as well as this weary mom's feet. We would love the free sample.

We love it! Both of my daughters have fair skin that's tends to break out in the cold months. It is the o ly thing that helps!!

Angela said...

That was awesome they gave you all that. Yes we do need to hear the story of the gas grill. If it makes you feel better I could tell you the story of my son lighting a cup of gas on fire. No I'm not kidding. Luckily he has no permanent scars.

Claire said...

Yay aquaphor! I like using the healing cream on bad diaper rash for my son. I have never used the lip ointment though...

Amanda said...

Love that stuff! I use it on my son's excema as well as my nose during a cold.

Hi! We really like Aquaphor as well. We have used it for our children with sinsitive skin. It works really good. I also wanted to thank you for your blog. It has been really encouraging to read. Thank you! Jennifer C.

Danielle Vincent said...

I'm allergic to chapsticks and would to try the lip repair. I have constant sore, dry, and burning lips and this sounds like a great product.

I love using Aquaphor on my dry cracked heels!

I haven't used Aquaphor but my elbows could sand rust off car bumpers and I can't take off my navy blue polyester work pants without dry skin flakes all over the inside of the pants...yes, Virginia, my skin is uber-dry.

I haven't used any Aquafor products since my son was a baby [9 years ago]. His pediatrician's office had a lot of little samples in their office and I remember having them in my diaper bag for the longest time!

KirstyB said...

We LOVE Aquaphor here!! DD has eczema that is usually under control. When we see it start to flare up, we use Aquaphor healing ointment and it usually nips it in the bud. We also use the ointment for chapped lips and noses. :)

I used Aquaphor on my 10 month old daughter's dry skin this winter. It was AMAZING how quickly it went back to soft and smooth. I love it!

Carla Sue said...

We discovered Aquaphor (the healing ointment)a couple years ago with both kiddos had a cold, leaving their noses all ouchy. :( Our doctor actually introduced us to the product. Since then, I've bought multiple of the small tubes that can be thrown into a purse or backpack and have them placed EVERYWHERE - in the car, bathrooms, bedroom, living room, etc. I use it on everything skin related, but think that by far, it's best at softening cuticles and keeping fingers from hangnails... :)

Erin said...

I LOVE Aquaphor. It does wonders on chapped skin during a cold. SOOO soothing!

The McCammons said...

The last time I used Aquaphor was for my oldest son when he was diagnosed with a skin condition. It worked fabulously. I did not know that they actually had lip care products. I would love to try them out again as I have extremely dry skin. (I just can't afford it because for lotion.skin care it's a little above my price range) :)

Julie said...

My oldest daughter has severe excema and Aquaphor is our best friend in the winter months, so happy to hear that it has made your quality of life better too :)

Em said...

Never heard of Aquafor before but wondering if it contains parabens. Can you read the back and see if some of the last ingredients are either methylparaben or propylparaben. IF i win I will read the ingredients myself. Thanks

BecBoo84 said...

I loved Aquafor products from my daughter's baby eczema. Also, Jill, I love your blog!

Beth said...

Have never used it but will have to give it a try. Thanks for the product review.

Michelle said...

I just recently discovered Aquaphor and will never go back to anything else. I have had eczema my whole life and the summer is the worst with outbreaks. Other ointments have just gave me temporary relief BUT with Aquaphor I did not need to reapply the cream every hour. – Michelle mjlhenry@yahoo.com

wojo said...

I think that is one product I haven't tried for my overly sensitive skin. None of the others work, I'd be willing to give this one a try!

Jolene said...

I would love to try the products!

I love love love Aquaphor! We started using it on 2nd son when he was 3 months old & not digesting fats. He would get terrible flaky, red, dry patches all over his body from the lack of fat & Aquaphor was the ONLY thing that helped!

Marcie said...

I LOVE Aquaphor around this house... it works wonders on my cracked heels from too much time in my boots around the farm.. and the boys know to bring me their "hand socks" and I slather them up with Aquaphor and then socks on hands... and off to bed they go.. and no more dry itchy hands by morning!

Beth said...

I have always enjoyed using Aquaphor on my kids' dry skin. It helps so much!

Tiffany said...

I have never used the product but I'm thinking I might try it now! :)

Thanks

Jessica Gadd said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Aquaphor Baby! It is THE ONLY thing I can use on my daughter Kelsey's eczema. She has it so bad, we have even tried prescription steroid creams and they did nothing compared to Aquaphor!!! When she was a baby I would coat her in the stuff, leave it on all day and then when I would wash her at night her skin would be so baby soft. Would love to win this, seeing as her eczema flares up in the warmer months!!

Laurie said...

I would love to win! I always have dry hands from washing them too much! Thanks, Laurie

I love your post and I also do love all thing Aquaphor! My son has some major skin sensitives and allergies and this is one of the only products that I can get him to use!

The "ingredients" read as follows:
Healing Ointment:
Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alchohol, Panthenol, Glycerin, Bisabolol and Petrolatum

And there is a lot listed in the Lip Balm, but none of them end with paraben!

Hope that helps! :o)

Maureen said...

I think it's wonderful of the company to sponsor this! I began using Aquaphor after my twins were born and I got some free samples from the hospital. It is great stuff for my kids sensitive skin.

Love Love Love me some Aquaphor!! I use the ointment all the time on my hands before going to bed and then put socks over them. In the morning they are no longer chapped and smooth as can be! I've never tried the lip balm, but would sure love to give it a try.
