Review Overview

Aquaphor Lip Repair is a very good, emollient lip balm that comes in a squeeze tube. The fragrance-free formula is gentle and does an excellent job of taking care of dry, chapped lips.

Eucerin included a small, but potentially effective, amount of antioxidants, an anti-irritant, and a cell-communicating ingredient, all of which can contribute toward making your lips healthier. Formula- and cost-wise, this is a great, portable lip balm!

Claims

Aquaphor Lip Therapy provides effective, long-lasting relief for dry lips. Aquaphor is a superior choice because it works by creating a protective barrier that conditions lips as it prevents moisture loss. It protects and helps heal dry, cracked lips to keep them smooth and healthy.

Ingredients

Octyldodecanol, C18-38 Alkyl Hydroxystearoyl Stearate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Panthenol, Water, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Bisabolol, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Lecithin, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Beeswax, C20-40 Alkyl Stearate, Magnesium Stearate, Magnesium Sulfate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Oleate, Citric Acid

Brand Overview

Eucerin At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive and widely distributed; fragrance-free cleansers; some good body washes and body moisturizers; widely available.

Weaknesses: Anti-redness products that added questionable ingredients instead of increasing the anti-inflammatory agents; nothing for acne-prone skin; jar packaging; some standard body lotions that are OK for dry skin but "OK" isn't good enough.

This drugstore staple line claims to be dermatologist-preferred skin care, but any dermatologist who recommends this line in its entirety without reservation needs a crash course in what skin really needs to be protected and look its best.

There are some basic products that a dermatologist would want to consider, but Eucerin falls short in products to address acne. Further, their latest facial skincare products aren't keeping pace with what industry frontrunners are doing in an effort to create elegant, effective products. For example, serums from Olay, Neutrogena, and Aveeno have much more interesting formulations, while moisturizers from many other drugstore lines (including Nivea, which is owned by Eucerin parent company Beiersdorf) include a greater complement of antioxidants and ingredients that mimic the structure and function of healthy skin. Eucerin is making some strides here, though, which is an encouraging sign.

A major pro for this line is that all of the products are fragrance-free. Although that's helpful for all skin types, it certainly isn't compelling enough for dermatologists to green-light this line without cautions about which products to avoid.

This isn't the best but..

The tube makes it convenient for putting in my car in hot weather. This has a greasy feel and doesn't feel as hydrating as I would like. I do appreciate lack of flavor, but I have used Cococare lip balm every night and it's superior for under $2.00. I highly recommend the Cococare.

Perfect.

Yes! Finally a lip balm that says what it does. My lips are chapped and dry (to the point of cracking) I use this for 2 days and bam: lips aren't chapped anymore. Can I get an AMEN? I've definitely tried the version with SPF and it was way greasier: don't go there people. Just get the version without it and you are good to go. I use it every morning underneath lipstick, my lips are happy. Thank you Paula!

I will not buy it again

I've been using "Aquaphor Lip Repair" together with "Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect Broad Spectrum SPF 30" for a couple of weeks now. What I like about them is that they leave my lips moist and smooth, and that they have no fragrance and almost no flavor. I dislike that they lack antioxidants. But the real breaker is that I am growing tired of them being so greasy thus forcing me to reapply them over and over again...

weird applicator, greasy, pricey, but it works!

No scent or flavor, very effective, but ... I don't like the squeeze tube w/ slanted plastic applicator tip. Also, it's a bit too greasy in texture. I think the price is a bit inflated.

Most soothing hydrating lip balm I've ever tried

This was on sale at Target for $3.50. It surpassed my expectations for lip balm. It is very hydrating, non-irritating, non-waxy, non-sticky, very soothing, wonderful!!!! Thanks again for leading me right.
