Aquaphor Works Wonders { Prize Pack Giveaway!}

*Giveaway now closed*

I am blond-haired, blue-eyed, very freckled and of Swedish and English decent…but compared to the rest of my family I have a fantastic tan. E isn’t so much “pale” as “transparent” and the kids definitely take after him. With all that paleness comes the usual complaints – dry itchy skin, sensitivity to all sorts of soaps and additives and cleansers, and chapped cheeks from runny noses and cold air. On top of that, my husband has a mildish case of rosacea (I say mildish, since it doesn’t bother him much – “vain” is not a word in his vocabulary – but it is persistent.)

So when Aquaphor emailed me and was like “Hey, can we send you some Aquaphor to try?” I was like “You mean send me MORE Aquaphor? Since I already buy it in the giant tub since we ran out of the giant tub the Navy prescribed to E for his face? Yes, yes you can.”

They sent me the Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment and the Aquaphor Baby Gentle Wash & Shampoo, both of which are favorites already in our house. The Healing Ointment is great on diaper rash, itchy spots and especially on the chapped skin on Evan’s face:

before Aquaphor

7:30 pm, right after bath. Poor baby. His nose runs and he wipes it with his right sleeve so the right side of his face is always the worst (We’re working on using tissues, I promise).

I used a teeny tiny bit of the Aquaphor Healing Ointment right before bed and…

after Aquaphor

8:00 am the next morning. Still a little dry but SO much better. Luckily a tube of Aquaphor lasts a long, long time so I just dabbed some more on throughout the day.

It even worked wonders on my thumb last night, after I burned myself lighting E’s birthday candles at 1 am (free tip: don’t play with fire when you’re really, really tired).

The Baby Gentle Wash & Shampoo is tear-free, fragrance-free and washes out really easily – all very important factors when trying to wash two squirmy kids who FREAK when you get water in their eyes or ears. Now that Caroline has hair long enough that I need to Deal With It regularly I appreciate that the Aquaphor Wash & Shampoo leaves it soft and shiny. It also took the marker right off both kids hands (and arms and knees and faces…) without drying or irritating their skin. We are Aquaphor devotees and I couldn’t imagine going through a whole winter without it.

To help YOU and your family enjoy your winter, Aquaphor wants to send one of my readers this amazing prize pack:

    I’m most excited about visiting my baby sister in Texas next week!

  2. Katherine T says:

    Just one thing that I am excited about this month….being one month closer to meeting this little kickboxer growing in my belly!

    But I would also be really excited to find something that would really help my dry, cracked, bleeding hands! I want to cry everytime I have to wash my hands :-(

  3. Katie Cox says:

    I am excited for a little Momma get-away this weekend spent with my sisters and parents (Ok, and maybe about sleeping in on said getaway!)

  4. Gassmama says:

    I am looking forward to running my first marathon on February 16!

  5. Katie Gibson-Stofflet says:

    Boy would this be good for my other little ginger nephew who has the same #firstgingerworld problems.
    I am excited for a big tax return to pay for my twins graduation open house and graduation announcements. Which by the way, you will get a super cute one!

  6. becca says:

    I’m most excited about my husband getting a new car!

  7. Stephanie says:

    I’m excited for lots of things! Volunteering on the L&D floor, my daughters 9th birthday, her rollerskating party, MOPS moms night out & my new book. February is a great month!

  8. Emily says:

    I am excited that this month my mom started watching all three kids for 8 hours on TUESDAYS! (The most glorious day of the week!) I am getting all sorts of stuff down. You know, like entering blog giveaways.

  9. Audrey says:

    Um, I’m pretty excited about this giveaway, that’s what I’m excited about. We are an eczema family, alas, which is only compounded by dry Cleveland winters. So poor Del gets dry patches on her torso and if we aren’t careful about only letting her have the binky for bedtime (I know, she needs to lose it already) she gets one heck of a chapped face. Plus ICE AGE!! And hot cocoa mix that we don’t have to make ourselves? I think Chris would leak a tear over that one. ;)

  10. I am super excited about my parents coming to visit at the end of the month so my husband and I can attend a film festival child free!

  11. I’m excited for…um…oh I know! Still being on maternity leave all month!

  12. lisa says:

    I am most excited for our first family pictures with my 3 1/2 month old. :)

  13. fun! there isn’t a ton of things happening this month, but we DO have several play dates planned with some great friends of ours. the kiddos get to wear themselves out and we get to interact with other parents we like. win-win!

  14. Cara says:

    I think I’m just excited for this month to end — enough winter already!

  15. barbra says:

    I am super excited about Feeding Tube Awareness Week 2013!!!! It’s going on right now! It’s an opportunity to show the world that feeding tubes (like the one my son has) is a good and positive thing that keeps him healthy!

    I would also like to win this because my husband calls me his alabaster queen. Our son also inherited my super fair coloring and in fact ended up as a red head – still not sure where it came from since I’m blond and my husband’s entire family has dark hair.

  16. Megan Dawe says:

    Cashmere!! I am excited about cashmere. I am also an aquaphor devotee… on you suggestion. But I didn’t know about the body wash. We will be getting us some of that! This winter has killed my face. And aquaphor is the only reason it hasn’t actually fallen off.

  17. Lisa Brown says:

    I am excited to ditch an unreliable vehicle for one that is reliable :)

  19. Brigid Keely says:

    I use aquaphor on my cracked horn-like super dry heels and it makes them feel like skin again. IT IS AMAZING!!

    I am a transparent redhead and love Aquaphor. I ahave been using it for years to protect my skin from from the nasty Chicago wind and freezing temps. My dermatoligist recommended it after removing a suspicious freckle. He told me the wound should heal from the inside out and keep Aquaphor on it at all times and it healed perfectly. I now have a pale blonde and blue eyed grandson who needs aquaphor.

  62. Annette Rowland says:
