Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream: Best-Selling Skin Care from Japan



"The Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream is a concentrated glycerin-based moisturizing cream enriched with vitamin E, vitamin B2, sodium hyaluronate and camphor. Free of sulfates, synthetic dyes and fragrances, petro-chemical and phthalates, the Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream is a safe and effective treatment for dry skin on the face, body, hands and feet. Use it to soften and reduce tough calluses, including hard, cracked heels and help heal and prevent split cuticles.

Yu-Be’s ultra-healing capabilities are largely due to its high glycerin content, which is achieved through a top-secret manufacturing process in Japan. It replenishes lost moisture from water damage or frequent hand washing, helps heal and minimize scarring from burns and protects and moisturizes skin exposed to cold, wind and water."

Use: Apply evenly on dry skin or lips as often as desired. For best results, use immediately after bathing.

What we think: This product is great. Keep in mind there is a menthol odor, which lasts a few minutes. However, your skin results in being deeply hydrated. It is a humectant, so it will hold moisture in your skin. Perfect for all seasons, especially winter when everything is chapped. 

Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream is also has attractive and functional packaging. The lid of the "To Go" variety lightly snaps onto the tube when screwed on so it will not twist off in your pocket or purse. Plus, a little bit of this product goes a long way.
