I have VERY dry skin, and outside of Aquaphor everything I put on it burns. I have tried several different "hydrating" creams, but all of them soaked in immediately and even after several applications back to back, still left my skin painfully dry. I got this product out of desperation and after the first use, my face felt quenched, it didn't hurt to move my face anymore, and it was helping my other moisturizers to absorb better. I use this product 2 to 3 times per day and it has made such a difference. My face is hydrated, smoother, it has helped with some fine lines, and my makeup looks so much better in combination with this. This is literally a life saver for anyone with extremely dry skin.
