question re: Aquaphor

First, can anyone recommend a website where I can order the small tubes that will ship to Canada?

I bought a large container of Aquaphor at the pharmacy but apparently that's all that's available in Canada and it's obviously not convenient for taking out of the house...

Second, can anyone please confirm whether these 0.35oz tubes and 1.75oz tubes as posted below...

Are the exact same product as this large 14oz container (which is what I have)...

I'm guessing the 0.35oz tubes would likely be the most convenient to carry around in your pocket on a daily basis and 5 or 6 should last a couple of months.

Where could I find these online to order?

Drugstore.com won't ship to Canada and I haven't seen them elsewhere...

Thanks for any help!!!

The one that you have (the tub) is the "original ointment", but the one that most people use is the "healing ointment". I asked the Pharmacist what the difference is and she said that the healing ointment will help to restore healthy skin and it will be more soothing. What you have will work, but the "healing" one will help healthy skin grow back! :)

I searched high and low in Toronto (Canada) and couldn't find it, so I ordered it on eBay. :)

Btw, Walgreens.com does not ship to Canada... Amazon charges $24 for shipping!!

I'm not sure where else to look...

I just placed an order for 5 tubes of 0.35oz "healing formula" through AmericaRX.

Shipping was expensive... 14.37 for UPS Standard delivery to Canada.

The tubes were only $2 a piece. I hope I ordered enough to last me at least through November. I also hope I receive them later this week.

I have a feeling that this will improve my accutane experience tenfold this time around. I'm in month 4/5 and I've just increased my dosage by 20mgs to 100mg per day. So I'm betting this will be needed!
