Great for head-to-toe hydration, it helps with all forms of stubborn dryness, including flaky red skin, chapped lips, and callused feet.

My Skin's Best Friend

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great Moisturizer
Sampled

This moisturizer is the best. I have oily skin and it worked great on my face. I put it on after washing my face before bed and when I wake up in the morning my face feels great. I dont mind the smell.

Might be a great product...

I see this product got high reviews, so I am sure it works well. I was not able to get past the scent. It reminds me of eucalyptus (some other reviewer said it smells like Carmex and I agree!) I do have to say the smell does fade after awhile.

I am a nurse and I always am looking for nice lotion to help my dry hands. I really liked this product. I had not heard of this brand before. I did think it was very helpful and I did not mind the smell or consistency.

Life saver!

I was so happy to get this in my December box. Perfect for cracked dry skin due to cold weather. I also use it as an under eye moisturizer.
