Product Review: Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Yu-Be
Name: Moisturizing Skin Cream
Size: 1.25 oz / 33 g
Price: $15 USD

I've never heard of Yu-Be before, but apparently it's a popular product in Japan.

A Glycerin-based moisturizing cream enriched with Vitamin E, Vitamin B2 and Camphor, Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream contains these leading skin conditioning ingredients (from the Yu-Be web site):
- Glycerin - natural "Humectant" attracts and retains moisture in the skin, making it softer
- Vitamin E - natural anti-oxidant and skin protector
- Vitamin B2 - helps to smooth rough or damaged skin (also gives Yu-Be it's yellow color)
- Camphor - helps soothe minor skin irritations (mild scent fades in minutes)

Other things that Yu-Be claims to do:
- helps hydrate, heal, soothe and smooth severe dry skin
- helps heal split cuticles and smooth rough, dry skin on hands, elbows, knees and feet
- helps protect and moisturize skin exposed to cold, wind, water and sun
- non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and locks in for hours
- contains no artificial colors or fragrances

To Purr About:
- absorbs super-quickly
- non-greasy
- my skin felt noticeably softer immediately after using

Claws Out:
- the camphor smell is a little off-putting at first, but it does fade pretty quickly
- online purchasing is only available to US residents
- a little expensive for a small amount

Final Comments:
The smell of this cream was a bit of a turn-off at first, but it does fade pretty quickly. And this product works really well! It absorbs really fast and leaves my skin feeling silky almost right away. The only thing is that you only get a little tube for $15 USD, so I wouldn't use this as a daily product, but perhaps for when you need a little extra soothing - I would use it mainly on hands, feet, elbows, knees, etc.

Rating (out of 5):

I tried this cream and unfortunately it wasn't moisturizing enough for my super dry skin. However, it does absorb super quickly and is not greasy so re-application is not a problem.

I have good experience with Moisturizing Skin Cream.

Now i buy Complex Skin Cream, This Cream can help soothe the muscle and joint discomfort that comes from living an active life.
