Love it!

I love the way this feels on my skin. I only used the sample on my face, and it is one of the few things that totally helped with my dry skin.

smells so bad

This smells awful. Regardless of how well it might work, I couldn't stand the smell to keep it on my skin.

Small sample

Well this stuff was average. I need more to decide if it really is as good as the company claims. Seemed to make a difference to my feet, which nothing else I've tried has made a difference. Definitely has potential.

Smelly

I did not like the smell of this at all. Maybe if I had a stuffy nose, but as a moisturizer it wasn't something I would leave the house with.

Excellent for moisture issue

My dermatology put me on a prescription that is drying my face out, especially around my mouth. This product has worked wonders keeping me hydrated. It has a light texture and doesn't clog my pores.

moisturizing!

This product really helped with a few dry spots I acquired while living in dry colorado. I liked how a little goes a long way too.

Love it

This stuff is great. Received a sample one month and have been using it as facial moisturizer now that the drying winter air is here. Smells and feels sorta like Carmex but absorbs nicely and the camphor smell goes away in seconds. Made out of only a few good ingredients so I feel that that not only does it work, but it's made out of good stuff too.

My Skin's Best Friend
Sampled

I have found "my" product. I will never stop using this skin cream, it is amazing! Right off the bat I was intrigued by Yu-Be's sample packaging, it contained very informative write-ups and also a brief history of the company (love that!) along with a good sized sample. It looks small but a little dab goes a LONG way. As soon as I was getting low I went out and bought 2 full-sized tubes, I never want to run out! When you first use it, it smells a bit like Carmex but that scent is completely gone in a minute. I use it primarily on my face. It works like a primer/moisturizer in one. Also, I am fairly positive that Yu-Be is responsible for my cleared up skin! I had some ugly and annoying blemishes about a month ago and now my face is literally blemish free and my skin feels divine! I know I keep using a lot of exclamation points but that's only because I am so excited about this AWESOME product that BIRCHBOX introduced me to!! Everyone -- start using this immediately. You won't regret it. Japan's #1 Skin Cream for a reason.

Average product

I received this lotion in my May birch box and it definitely threw me for a loop. I'm always down to try new beauty products but I was not a fan of this one mostly due to its scent.
