Fabulous, Functional & Frugal Fashion Tip #19

Multi-Purpose Dry Skincare Solution

3.5 oz. jar of Aquaphor advanced therapy healing ointmentI don’t know how true it is but I heard a rumor that spring is just around the corner. Call me a skeptic but when it’s looking like a winter wonderland outdoors, well, methinks we’re being duped.

For over a year I debated on trying a product I believe was touted as being a miracle cure to dry and cracked skin. One of the things I’ve noted as I’ve gotten older is my skin tends to be on the drier side and cold weather has a tendency to make it worse.

I can endure many things but dry skin isn’t one of them and dry feet drives me up the wall. It was time to give in and try Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment. To my delight, after three days of applying a generous amount on my feet at night and then putting on a pair of socks, my tootsies felt soft and smooth.

When I first heard Aquaphor was good on extremely dry skin and it could also be used on the face, lips, elbows, knees, hands, and feet I thought it might be worth a try. The ultimate factor that convinced me was learning it creates a breathable barrier on the skin that retains moisture. On a scale of 1-5, I give it a 5 with the following pros and cons.


  • fragrance-free
  • soothing on chapped lips
  • makes feet feel soft & smooth
  • can be used on minor skin irritations, cuts & scrapes
  • no preservatives


  • while wonderful on lips, feet, and elbows it feels greasy on my hands but I give it 5 rating because my feet were so dry and it works very well
