Review First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is describe as a super emollient cream for anyone with severely dry, scaly skin due to harsh winter weather, aggressive cosmetic treatments, or skin condition such as dermatitis, eczema, and keratosis pilaris. With the help of colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, soothing eucalyptus oil, and ceramides, Ultra Repair Cream provides immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin.
Price: 6 oz. tube for $28. Also comes in 2oz and 12oz size.
Pros: It is formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, and synthetic dyes. It is moisturizing and thick yet absorb to a matte and non greasy finish. I don’t use this everyday but where it really shines is when my skin acts up. At the end of last summer, right before my wedding, maybe because I was under enormous stress but somehow my skin was terribly dry and flaky. No matter what moisturizer, primer, foundation, hydrating spray I used, my skin was just a flaky mess. I was freaking out as my wedding date is just right around the corner. Thank goodness for this cream. It’s the only thing that is able to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day and doesn’t turn my foundation into a cakey mess. My skin was not in its normal shape but much more manageable.
Also last week my skin was irritated and scaly from windburn. I use this and it was immediately better the next day. I find that when my skin is irritated, I just use this for a few nights and its back to normal. I also use it on my arms where I get chicken bumps. It helps keep it moisturize and soft. Too bad the price is not cheap enough to slather all over the body but it is very reasonable for such a wonderful product.
Cons: Nothing really except that it comes in a jar. I scoop some out into a smaller jar so I can keep it fresh and clean longer. I also wish it contains other antioxidant, if it does, I would definitely use it daily.
Overall: Even though it is not my daily moisturizer as it lacks antioxidants. It is a staple in my cabinet, my go to cream when my skin is dry or acting crazy. I love how it is matte and non greasy, I imagine even combination skin can find it helpful. Rating: 5/5.
