Hi friends! I’m excited to share with you today one of my favorite products – Aquaphor! When they reached out to me to do a review of their product I was ON BOARD 100%. Why? Because the Aquaphor Healing Ointment has been a well-used product in our household ever since we’ve had kids. True story! It’s pediatrician recommended, free of fragrances, preservatives, and dyes, so this multi-purpose ointment can be used for your skin needs from dry, sensitive skin to chapped cheeks.
In fact – I can tell you the first time we purchased Aquaphor. My oldest son was a baby and started teething and we experienced our first bout with SERIOUS diaper rash. You know, not that stuff you can just stick some diaper cream on and call it a day. It kept getting worse and worse, so I called the doctor – being a first time mom and having no idea what to do! The first thing they told me? Buy Aquaphor. And now we’ve owned it ever since.
So when we received our Aquaphor goodies in the mail I was so excited! Not only are our baby items restocked, that we still use on our little guys, but there was advanced Healing Ointment for US! Now I’m going to show you something – but you have to promise not to freak out. I live in Arizona and wear flip flops all. the. time. Now I try to keep up with pedicures (who has the time??) but I do confess that my heels get a little gnarly. But guess what is PERFECT for those dry, cracked heels? Yup, you guessed it. Check this out…
See! No more gross, dry feet. And a quick tip – if you rub some Aquaphor into your feet at night and throw some socks on, you’ll keep your feet looking this way! And in the Summertime (when the last thing you want to do is wear socks to bed) just cut the front part of the sock off so just your heels are covered. Problem solved!
One more quick note about the Aquaphor products (if you’re not sold yet), if you have kiddos that are rough on their lips, the Aquaphor Lip Repair and Protectant really works wonders. My oldest tends to lick and mess with his lips all the time, so they’re always so very dried out and peely. I’ve tried just putting vaseline on at night and chapstick during the day, which help in the short term but it never quite works as well as I want. So I was actually ecstatic to try the lip repair out. And it works! His lips have been in such better condition this week, just from a couple of applications! I’m so glad that I’ve discovered this product because it has really been something that has bugged me forever.
Ok, so now that I’ve told you ALL about Aquaphor and how much we swear by it, we have a little treat! Though Mother’s Day has passed, Aquaphor feels like the mothers out there should be honored every single day! And I agree, so I want to tell you a few ways that my mom has worked wonders in my life…
My mom has always been there for me, always. This picture of us is when I spoke at the Revive blog conference earlier this year. She’s not a blogger, but supports every single thing I do, so she bought a ticket just to hear me speak. My mom has always believed in me. From when I was a little girl she told me I could do anything, be anything that I want to be. And I believed her. And I have to tell you how much of a difference I can see that it made in my life in comparison to those who didn’t have that same encouragement or support. My mom has always made sure I had what I needed. Even to this day in my 30s, she checks in on me to make sure that our family has everything they need. She is truly an amazing person – an amazing mom – and everything I strive to be.
