Before applying this skin-softening cream, exfoliate your face and body with Yu-Be’s Foaming Skin Polish.

Yu-Be

Birchbox Breakdown

Professional Japanese mountain climbers use this all-over moisturizer to keep their skin protected when they’re scaling Mount Everest, so you know there must be something special about it. Invented by a pharmacist back in the 1950’s, Yu-Be has been Japan’s top-selling skin cream for over fifty years. Great for head-to-toe hydration, it helps with all forms of stubborn dryness, including flaky red skin, chapped lips, and callused feet. The natural formula is free of ingredients like artificial dyes, fragrances, and petrolatum. It’s so gentle that even infants and kids can safely use it.

How it Works

A dose of soothing camphor gives this light yellow cream its faint herbal scent, which fades quickly upon contact with your skin. High concentrations of glycerin and sodium hyaluronate seal in moisture and protect skin from the elements. Finally, vitamins B, C, and E infuse skin with antioxidants and boost firmness. The thick, creamy consistency makes this an ideal hand cream, foot cream, lip balm, and facial moisturizer—or you can use it to soften rough elbows and knees. You’ll be amazed by how quickly it absorbs into your skin without leaving a greasy feeling behind.

How to Use

Smooth a thin layer onto any dry patches, and massage into your skin until the cream disappears.

Glycerin, Water, Isopropyl Myristate, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Triethanolamine, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Glycyrrhetinic Acid, Camphor, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Hydrogenated coco-glycerides, Stearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 80, EDTA, Methylparaben, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Sodium Hyaluronate.

Strange, but Awesome

I wasn't sure how to feel about this product at first. A product that I can use from my face to my feet,and everything in between? However, I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It works great. Makes whatever you use it on soft and smooth.

Amazing on lips
SampledPurchased

While this product says it's good for head-to-toe hydration, I use it exclusively on my lips. I suffer from peeling lips and this helps so much!!

I really only use this product on my lips when I can't find my Chapstick. It moisturizes my lips pretty well but not as well as petroleum

It's a very nice moisturizer but not enough for my super dry hands. Its a tiny sample so its nice to be able to use it on lips too.

Garbage
Sampled

This stuff is terrible! It stinks and is super greasy. If it were advertised as a medical cream that would be better but it's not something I would recommend putting on your face as a moisturizer. I used it on my hands and they were greasy for over an hour even after washing and trying to wipe off.

Funky taste and consistency
Sampled

Didn't like the smell, taste or consistency. Also didn't feel it fixed my dry skin at all, just added a slick layer on top...

I did not really like this product. It kinda reminded me of vaseline which I realize is a great moisturizing product, but I didn't like it.
