Yu-Be Skincare Review

Yu-Be is the #1 selling Medicated, Vitamin-Enriched Skin Care Cream in Japan - Est. 1957. They sent me over 4 great products for review. They have been fighting dtry skin for over 50 years. Some history about Yu-Be
It was 1957 when a young pharmacist named Yoshikiyo Nowatari first introduced his now famous moisturizing cream to Japan. His creation was invented at the request of a woman long-suffering from dry, cracked skin. She was tired of using petroleum-based skin care products that she found to be greasy, messy and ineffective. With the help of a chemist and a special manufacturing process, he created a glycerin-based moisturizer that would go on to be one of the longest-selling skin care products in Japan and the #1 selling medicated, vitamin-enriched cream on the market.

Mr.Nowatari chose to sell his product as a "medicated" skin care cream so families would know it was for their use on tough, dry skin -as opposed to other "beauty", "wrinkle" or "anti-aging" creams on the market. In the 50 years since it's birth, this moisturizer has attracted and kept a massive and loyal customer base in Japan. Generations of familes have used the concentrated formula on all types of dry skin - from split cuticles and cracked heels to diaper rash - even frostbite - and to this day refuse to use anything else

The first product they sent for review is Yu-Be Foaming Skin Polish which retails for $18.00.
Cleanses, exfoliates and softens. This is a great product to use if you like using a self tanner as it exfoliates the skin really well.
Prepare your skin for moisturizing in your ofuro!
The Japanese bathing ritual or "ofuro" has been an important and sacred custom for many centuries. Baths provide both relaxation for the mind and improved health for the body by stimulating blood circulation. Scrub away stress and layers of rough, dry skin cells by including Yu-Be Foaming Skin Polish in your "ofuro". Fine grains of rice bran combine with bamboo and gentle cleansing agents to create a luxuriously foaming scrub that washes away dry skin. Extracts of ginger root and ginseng tone and balance the skin, while green tea, geranium oil and camphor provide a soothing, refreshing sensation. Use original Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream and Yu-Be Moisturizing Body Lotion after bathing to maximize hydration and help improve the feel of your skin.

The next product is the Yu-Be Lip Therapy which retails for $5.00.

ALL-NATURAL lip balm (stick) manufactured in the USA. The ingredients are based on the original 50 year old Japanese Yu-Be formula and includes Vitamin E and camphor. This product is highly effective for moisturizing, healing and soothing dry chapped lips. (Note: this product does not contain SPF protection)
The only con i can find with this item is that it doesnt have a SPF in it. I actually keep this in my purse and it works so good that Brendan likes it as well.

OK next product is Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream 1.25oz tube - the original #1 seller from Japan which retails for $16.00.

  • Use Yu-Be anywhere on the body - even the face and lips.
  • Helps heal split cuticles and smooth rough, cracked and dry skin on hands, elbows, knees and feet.
  • Absorbs instantly and works for hours. Good for all day or all night.
  • Non-greasy formula contains NO artificial colors, fragrances, petrolatum or SPF.
  • CAMPHOR soothes irritation and stimulates blood circulation to improve overall health of your skin.
  • Mild camphor scent fades within minutes.
  • Concentrated GLYCERIN moisturizer helps hydrate, soothe and smooth severe dry skin on the whole family - ALL YEAR LONG. (kids too!)
  • Makes a great massage cream! Click these links to see hand massage and body massage instruction
  • This is a great product it makes my skin really soft and I will be continuing to use this.

    Lastly we have Yu-Be Heel & Elbow Moisturizing Socks which retails for $13.00.

    Advanced bacteria-absorbing material called Chitosan (pronounced Kite-uh-san) that is both hypoallergenic and has remarkable anti-microbial properties to help eliminate odor and promote healthy skin.Directions for a "Yu-Be Nighttime Moisturizing Treatment"

    Soak and wash dry, cracked heels or elbows in warm water for several minutes before bedtime to allow pores to open and maximize absorbtion while you sleep. Apply Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream generously on affected areas and cover with Yu-Be Heel & Elbow Socks. You will be amazed to see and feel the difference when you wake up the next morning!
    -1 pair per box - 1 size fits all.

    I recieved these items for review purposes only. My opinions are honest and i was not paid for this review.
