We're all trying to get our beauty's worth, each time we spend money on treatments that promise to deliver.
Promises that equal smoother skin, smaller pores, acne-free complexion, wrinkles zapped, and so on.
And when these beauty products don't exactly live up to the hype, the frustration deepens. And when you've shelled out a lot of $$$ to look pretty, well, that really hurts.
Today we are looking at a simple jar of Aquaphor Healing Ointment ($8.99, 3.5 oz., drugstores everywhere).
On the jar it reads: 'Advanced Therapy for dry, cracked, or irritated skin. Clinically proven to restore smooth, healthy skin.'
And according to New York City Dermatologist Laurie Polis (see photo), this little jar does something else-----it acts a a superb nighttime eye cream.
Laurie Polis told In Style Magazine that Aquaphor Healing Ointment does its best work when you've retired for the night, which is actually the best time to treat your skin.
"It conditions lashes and hydrates the delicate eye skin really well," Laurie Polis says. And she swears by this product.
Who is Laurie Polis? She is a celebrity dermatologist. And her client list is quite impressive-----Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Drew Barrymore, Kate Moss, and even Mel Gibson.
Many of you have already used Aquaphor Healing Ointment for years on dry, cracked heels, on sunburns, chapped lips, fresh tattoos, newly shaven legs, and the list goes on.
The only advice we will give you: While using the product around the eyes, be careful when applying. You don't want to get the ointment in the eyes.
