Works For Me Wednesday: Brand Loyal Edition
Happy Wednesday to you! It's time once again to post another WFMW tip. This week it's a "Brand Loyal Edition".

Before I share my favorite brand with you, I'd like to mention that I've got my September Pay It Forward Book Exchange going on. Stop by for details on how to win up to 17 great books! More are being added daily, so keep checking back! And you don't have to host your own book giveaway to enter to win these books! You can just enter to win. :)

Now, on to my WFMW brand loyalty tip!

One of our favorite products is Aquaphor Healing Ointment. We started using Aquaphor when Snuggle Bug was a baby and we still use it now that he's 2 1/2 years old!

We've used Aquaphor for diaper rash, chapped baby cheeks, to sooth scratches, and to heal minor scrapes. I've even used it on my chapped lips at night!

This 1.75 oz tube is about $6.00. The larger 14 oz size is about $17.00. It's worth every penny, at least we think so!

Aquaphor works for me. To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!

This stuff lasts forever. I've had several little sample tubes from the OB/gyn from my last couple of pregnancies that lasted and lasted. Great stuff!

I might have to try this on my hubby. He's a quadriplegic and prone to skin breakdowns and chafing. I use A & D on him but it doesn't always work.

Thanks for sharing!

This sounds great. I've seen this product but never used it. It's always so nice to hear that someone really likes something.

Yes, ma'am. I cannot sing enough praises for Aquaphor. I have intense-crazy-wouldn't-give-this-to-my-worst-enemy eczema on my legs.

This was the ONLY over the counter product that worked after years of searching. Also, I just found out Costco sells the large tub for roughly $12.75 (instead of $17.00 at Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreen's, etc.) It is in the pharmacy at Costco, behind the counter so you have to ask for it.

But as you noted, it is worth it!

Sounds great.
I haven't seen it here, what a pity.

Wow, i'm going to have to try this. Thanks for the tip.

At 10:42 AM, Blogger Annabelle said...

I have some of this around the house too!

This one is new to me. Thanks for sharing!

i agree i have a huge thing by my bed for winter when my knuckles crack. we love it for diaper rash as husband is a pediatrician and picked up a good tip to mix eqaul parts of aquaphor and liquid malox and store in the fridge - it clears diaper rash in a few hrs!

I agree, this worked better than anything else on all three of my boys!
