Today, I am going to talk and review about my recent staple in my skin care regime. My hubby got this First Aid Beauty (FAB) Ultra Repair Cream from US during his last visit. Although I had only told him to get my all time moisturizer cetaphil he got this one as an add-on. I am so glad he did as It is amazing cream to quench the thirst of my skin during late winters.

My take on the product:
The product comes in both tube and tub packaging depending on the quantities you purchase . I got a tube packaging and I will describe about it . The product comes in a cute white tube with pastel blue , grey and red prints . The cream is opaque with a texture of whipped airy cream. I would say something resembling a marsh mallow cream. It smells like old eucalyptus leaf. I take a very little quantity and massage on my face and neck. It absorbs very well and won’t leave a residue. But, if I apply my BB cream or a foundation, it gives a cakey look. Hence, I avoid using it underneath my makeup. I use it as a night cream and it works well.
Few days back, when the climate was changing from winter to summer here in Delhi, my skin was behaving very badly and had turned out very dry. Just moisturizing with cetaphil lotion was not enough. And this cream from FAB helped my skin to regain the lost moisture. Even though it is a heavy textured cream, it is non-comodogenic in sense, it didn’t give me any acne or white heads.
It has traditional ingredients like Oatmeal which is a skin soother along with science driven antioxidants, ceramides etc. It is one moisturizer which suits all skin types but I am not able to understand the fact that it has eucalyptus which is generally a skin irritant. Never-the-less it works fine for me.
- It is 100% free of Parabens, pthalates and sulphates .
- It does what is claims in intensely hydrating the skin
- Even men can also use this cream
- Good packaging & travel friendly
- A very good cream for skin dryness and dry patches.
- It is very expensive here in India
- Availability in India is also an issue
My Rating : 8/10
It is a good moisturizing cream for dry skinned people. It moisturizes all the dry skin patches. You can use it anywhere from head to toe. I do recommend this product to everyone who wants to try a heavy moisturizing cream and I can say it will not break out your skin.
