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.

Perfection
Sampled

I love this product!! It makes me lips soft. I put some on my lips before I put make-up and my lips are prepped for lipstick. It does smell like camphor but the smell vanishes completely. I also dab some under my eyes as a eye cream before I go to bed.

This lotion is a nice, all over moisturizer. I enjoyed the sheer coverage, non-oily feel. One of those products that is very versatile.

My hands gets really dry in the winter and this worked well without leaving any greasy residue. I also love the fact that you can use it on your face too.

Too small
Sampled

I enjoyed the sample but it was too small for me to really get to use it. Might try larger size in the future. I also noticed it burned in dryer places but I also have super sensitive skin

Love

This smells like my sons diaper cream but my face feels soft and protected from the cold winter. it is a bit pricy though... Maybe I should just try my sons diaper ointment to save money.

Love it!
Sampled

My face started breaking out and I changed my face wash which cleared up my acne but left my face so dry I had patchy spots on my face.
I started mixing a small bit of the Yu.Be in my nightly face cream. It worked wonders! My skin has never been so smooth and soft!

Eczema Treatment
SampledPurchased

I have patches of eczema in several spots. My doctor has prescribed a couple of different (expensive) creams over the years. I initially received this in my monthly box. After 2 uses I could tell this was a great product. I ordered the full size and only have to use it occasionally now.
Also works well for dry lips and cracked cuticles!

Great versatile product
Sampled

Great product, my toddler and I have a real problem with chapped noses and cheeks during cold season and this was a life saver. It does not sting raw skin ( great ingredients!) and it takes away the redness and sensitivity, overnight. Will order it to keep around year round.

Feet

I have really dry rough cracked feet . I put this on my feet at night before bed and it has made a difference. The smell is a little off putting though
