Moisturizers -First Aid Beauty -Ultra Repair Cream

I feel like I've wasted an absurd amount of time and $ experimenting with moisturizers for my sensitive, oily, dehydration and clog-prone skin. They cause blackheads, whiteheads and other uglies, irritate my skin, sit on top of my skin, are too greasy, fail to hydrate effectively, etc., etc. There's always a deal breaker. Or two or five.

Some of the ingredients in this cream gave me pause. My face doesn't normally get along with silicones, shea butter, or essential oils. But I have the kind of skin that is upset by a gentle breeze, so I desperately needed to find something soothing and hydrating.

Enter FAB Ultra Repair Cream! I would describe it as a dry moisturizer. There's no grease whatsoever, it sinks in immediately. I really put it to the test the other day after experimenting with a new cleansing oil- that stripped my skin of every last drop of moisture. My face was a burning, red, leathery nightmare. (To add insult to injury, the cleansing oil proclaimed it was "mild", designed for "sensitive skin". Sorry, but you only *think* you know what sensitive skin is, Etude House.)

This cream absolutely surpassed my expectations. It was instantly soothing, absorbed like a dream, my skin actually felt soft. With continued use my skin is looking better and better. It's starting to resemble healthy skin again! As far as I can tell, the cream hasn't caused any clogs or acne. *knock on wood*

Treatments (Face) -First Aid Beauty -Facial Radiance Pads

To me, First Aid Beauty is just a brand I don't really care for or know much about. Not too many people talk about their products, and it just hasn't perked my curiosity enough to put their products on my must try list. Anyway, I received a sample of these in a recent haul and ended up pleasantly surprised! They remind me of a milder version of the Dr.Denis Gross wipes minus the 2 steps. To sum it up, these are thin exfoliating circle wipes (think drugstore ones like noxema, clean and clear) that can remove facial makeup thoroughly, and doesn't leave behind an unpleasant film. No strong, unpleasant, or lingering scent. 1 or 2 pads (if you wear heavy makeup?) is enough. I haven't tried this long enough to say whether I would find these as a staple in my collection, but I wouldn't mind keeping this in my gym bag as an alternative to the standard makeup wipe on days where I feel my skin is a little dull and needs a little exfoliation. I know we're all different when it comes to acid toleration, but I would recommend these for those who have sensitive skin because I had zero irritation with this when I had skin issues. (For reference, I have sensitive acne prone skin with scarring and discoloration issues.) Also lastly, this brand is cruelty free and sold at sephora.

Moisturizers -First Aid Beauty -First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer

I have been using this moisturizer for about a week. My skin has been very, very dry from using Retin A for the past month and I needed something that was moisturizing, but not a thick, rich cream or lotion that could clog my pores. This is a nice, lightweight lotion that has a silky feel to it. It feels very nice and makes my skin super soft. Other moisturizers I have tried have left my skin looking greasy and shiny, while this one leaves my skin hydrated, but not shiny/greasy at all. For Retin A treated skin, this still isn't enough in terms of moisturizing capabilities so I do add a layer of jojoba oil on top, however for non-treated skin this would likely do quite well. It has not caused any reactions or acne breakouts and it has a lot of anti-irritants and skin-soothing ingredients, which were attractive to me since my skin is so dry and sensitive right now. It is also fragrance-free and doesn't contain any irritating plant oils/extracts that a lot of other brands use. My skin has been improving since I started using this and although it's a bit on the pricey side I will likely repurchase. I also use the FAB mattifying gel under this product and together they work great to hydrate and soothe my skin.

Moisturizers -First Aid Beauty -Hello FAB Coconut Water Cream

Extremely gentle moisturizer that feels smooth, soothing, and cooling going on. I can imagine myself using this only with another moisturizer, though, because it’s definitely not rich enough.

Cleansers -First Aid Beauty -Face Cleanser

They discontinue everything that I love and use daily. My beloved face wash has been discontinued and now I’m on the hunt AGAIN because my skin sucks and is so sensitive.

This cleanser is great for removing light makeup as it removed all my powder foundation and mascara .. BUT- I am allergic to an ingredient in this and I think it’s the feverfew. I can’t use any of the first aid beauty products and I think it’s safe to say the feverfew extract messes me up- my skin was red after washing :/ I wish they had a line without this ingredient because this would be a great face wash otherwise
