The Beauty of A&D

I am addicted to chapstick.  I carry it with me everywhere I go.  Actually, more specifically, I am addicted to A&D ointment.

I have been the receiver of much grief over my A&D Ointment obsession.  After all, in order to purchase this miracle ointment, you have to go to the baby diaper rash section of a drug store.  My friends refer to it as "butt paste."  BUT (pun intended) I've officially converted all of my biggest critics.  They're all using it now, too!

A&D Ointment is good for chapped skin (that's why it's good for diaper rash and chapped lips), minor cuts, and minor burns (I use it when I burn myself with the flat iron).  I actually lather up with A&D Ointment when I have a sunburn.  It's a little stinky and very slimy, but I never peel when I use it!  Seriously, it's good for virtually everything!

For those of you who may want to shy away from carrying a tube of diaper rash cream around in your purse, here's my solution.  Buy a round little travel container and it looks like Carmex.  Much more discreet.

A&D Ointment comes in a variety of sizes.  
Big tubs

And two sizes of tubes.  I have a small tube in my purse sometimes and a big tube in my bathroom.

Bottom line -- everyone needs their very own A&D Ointment!

Fine print:  I'm not a doctor.  I'm not a pharmacist.  I'm not giving you medical advice.  Go ask your doctor if you have a serious burn or cut.  I'm just telling you what works for me!
