Aquaphor Review & $50 Gift Card Giveaway!!



It is that time of year again. Time when my skin revolts and starts asking for some moisture! The cold weather and dry air makes for what I call Alligator Skin and Snake Skin Lips.

Usually, I am indoors during the winter but I have to go to work and do grocery shopping so I have to brave the elements. The minute I go out in the cold the wind dries my lips. I live with all types of lip balms in my purse, car, home and work.

I was sent a package that included the Aquaphor Healing Ointment, Aquaphor Gentle Wash and Shampoo and the Aquaphor Lip Repair + PROTECT that includes Broad Spectrum SPF 30.

I was excited to see the Aquaphor Healing Ointment because it is one of my go to lotions in the wintertime.  I tried the Healing Ointment a few years ago and still use it.  The Aquaphor Healing Ointment is must have for dry skin. It really moisturizes and keeps skin smooth and silky throughout winter. Hubby loves it as well.

The Aquaphor Gentle Wash and Shampoo is for babies and kids but that doesn't stop me from using it. I love it because it keeps my hair soft. I really liked the Lip Repair because I am not joking when I say that my lips become like snake skin in the winter.

They crack, dry and peel. Yes, peel. It is not a good thing. And if I do not keep them moisturized, it is not a pretty sight. There are times they get so bad that they swell up as well. Of course, I get that Angelina Jolie look but not in a good way.

We live in the mountains so it gets windy and cold in the fall and it snows in the winter. I try to avoid being out in the elements but if I have to shovel the driveway or walk in the cold, I want something that really helps my lips. The Aquaphor Lip Repair does a good job keep them moist and protecting them from any sun and wind damage as well.

Overall, I really like Aquaphor products especially in the wintertime.  I would recommend them to anyone.

I also have a great prize for one lucky reader. One of you will win a tube of the Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect and a $50 gift card! YAY! This is a great prize because you can use the $50 to stock up on Aquaphor for winter! To enter just fill out the Rafflecopter widget below!
