Review: Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

I got a sample of this and was excited to try the  “#1 selling medicated, vitamin-enriched skincare cream in Japan”…

About the Product:   It’s a concentrated glycerine-based moisturizer.  I think it should be called a “balm” instead of a “cream”, because it’s not very creamy.  It’s formulated without  sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals, and phthalates.

What I Think About It:  It’s a good moisturizer.  It feels a little greasy (which is why I’d call it a “balm”), so I wouldn’t recommend it for all-purpose use.  However, if you have problem areas (feet, over-dried hands from lots of washing, etc.) it might be a good choice for you.  I’ve been using it on my nose, which has been ravaged by lots of contact with Kleenexes, due to recent allergy attacks.  It’s very gentle and is medicated, so it treats the skin while moisturizing.

Available at: (maybe in stores),

Price:  $16 for a 1.25 oz. tube
