Best Product EVER!
I’ve run four Rock Steady Running races (2 Moose Mountain marathons, the Spring Superior 25K, and the Zumbro 17-Mile) and this wonder product has always been in the race swag bags. It is, hands down, the best product I’ve ever used for chaffing and chapped lips.

Vanicream Moisturing Ointment
This ointment is absolutely the greatest thing!! It feels like silk, and not greasy. Worth every penny. Worth going out of my way to purchase this.

Didn't work for me
I just bought this from this website in the smallest tube because it was the only one they were selling(customer service was helpful though); but it didn't work for me. It just sat atop my lips. They were hust as dry as before I used it.

Moisturizing ointment
I 'am a veteran and have been going to doctors for over six months to get two places on my arm healed up they tried every thing they could think of even blamed it on agent orange but some one gave me some Vani cream moisturizing ointment they said to only use it and nothing else on it they said to use it 24 hours a day I was ready to try any thing. But to my I never dreamed that it would take care of the problem that nothing else would. Myself I can not think the maker's of Vani cream enough for this product.

Vanicream Ointment
I hate it. I hate not being to touch my arms. I hate the greasy feeling of it getting on my sheets. My dermatologist has me using the lotion in the morning and the ointment at night. I am not a lotion fan but will use it when i need to. The greasy feeling of the ointment is not desirable.

Solution for people with Eczema
I’m so glad I was introduced to this brand by my dermatologist. No face cream was working on me and all were irritating my skin. The cleanser and moisturizer have been working great for me. Thank you for your great brand. Just one suggestion, for the body wash please have a pump for the bottle to make it easier for use. I still haven’t bought that because of the bottle type.

stick form
I love the vaniply ointment for my dry lips. It is currently the only thing I can use. However, it is quite messy to continuously apply. Does it come in a stick form?

Shanon – We sell Vaniply in a 10 gram tube that allows for easy application for dry lips.
