Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

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 50 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.

Too small sample size
Sampled

This was such a small sample size, like a one time use. Not a big fan of the smell. Did not notice any difference on skin moisture. Maybe if it was used daily. Not a good sample product.

Bad smell and texture
Sampled

Was not a fan of the smell of this product - it smelled very strongly like medicine. Also found the texture to be really thick and hard to apply.

Not for oily skin
Sampled

I'm sure this product is great for dry skin or during the Winter months but I wouldn't recommend it for oily or combo skin. It had a greasy feel that I did not like.

terrible scent
Sampled

This product smelled awful. I am surprised at how many great reviews it has received. Possibly, I just received a tube from a bad batch.

Vaseline... in a different bottle
Sampled

This stuff feels and smells and looks exactly like Vaseline. Instead of a moisturizing lotion, expect a thick goo-ey mess. It definitely seems medicinal. I wouldn't buy this but maybe there's another use for it? Good luck!

Wasn't a fan
Sampled

I really didn't care this moisturizer. The texture was very sticky and I did not like the smell. I did think that it worked well on my dry skin at all either

Smells Terrible
Sampled

The consistency is fine, nothing special, but it smells awful. I tried it once and threw it away. Even if it were the best skin cream in the world I wouldn't use it because of the smell.

Not for me
Sampled

This cream is thick and smelly. It reminds me of rubbing Vicks on and smells like it too. Not pleasant at all.
