Q: This is my first time using this product. The cream is so thick that it doesn't come out of the container without a lot of squeezing and it looks and feels like vaseline. Is this normal?

submitted by Lodges Lady - 4 years ago
  • A: Yes, it looks and feels like Vaseline. It should come out of the tube somewhat thick but not as how you describe. I recommend exchanging, check the expiration date. I bought mine a few weeks back and the expiration date is 2021.

Have a bunch of sample sizes and I like it a lot but the after affects are a little greasy for me. It works fantastic if you aren't touching something immediately after. The packaging is a cute tub and the one I have is tiny and cute. The scent is like petroleum jelly.

It feels like engine grease and does nothing to help cracked and chafed skin. It feels greasy and gross when applied. The price point is an insult for a bad product.

The ointment is thick in texture so you really have to squish the packaging to get some out, so I wouldn’t recommend the tube version if you have arthritis in your hands. It doesn’t leave a stickiness to the touch afterwards if you don’t use a lot of it and it’s also odorless. I’ve been trying it every night for 1 month and it’s not particularly great in any way, i’ll probably buy a cheaper ointment after this runs out.

A real game changer. My lips were cracked and peeling. I tried everything, to no avail. I read an online recommendation from a dermatologist that suggested Cerave Healing Ointment. I saw immediate improvement. I highly recommend.

I have this in the tubs and in tubes all over my house. I use it on top of moisturizer out of the shower… I use it when my skin is raw or irritated… I use it on my lips, my face. This is seriously an all in one product. This is so moisturizing and and truly is healing. This was recommended after a skin biopsy to help my skin heal and I do not have a scar where my dermatologist had me put it every day. This was recommended by my dermatologist and I’m so glad I bought it.

Winnie - 3 months ago
It says non-greasy in the description, title, and image yet it is very greasy. It's just like aquafor or vaseline. It isn't worth the price as I could just get this kind of product for a lot cheaper. The advertising is wrong and caused me to purchase because I thought it wouldn't be greasy. Sadly, it is totally greasy and I wasted my money. I even let it sit on my skin (rubbed in) for an hour while watching tv and it never sunk in. Definitely greasy feel. Poorly advertised.
