Foundations -First Aid Beauty -Hello Fab Triple Protection Skin Tint SPF 30

on 5/17/2018 12:40:00 AM

This, in my opinion is a HG product. I can’t find a lot of sheer, pore reducing, spf products that DONT try and moisturize - which is why I love this. I have a moisturizer I adore, but it doesn’t have spf or any tint to it, sooooo I mix this in and BAM literally perfect skin that makes people ALWAYS comment on how great my skin is WHILE looking 100% natural AND saving me a bit from sun damage. I love it. So versatile and so down to earth looking. I hate when skin care looks embarrassingly fussy. This is perfect.

Moisturizers -First Aid Beauty -Ultra Repair Cream

I've tried this out on about 3 separate occasions I just don't understand the hype. When I put it on, whether I slather a thick layer or I gently pat a pea sized amount over a damp face, it doesn't feel moisturizing at all. It feels as though part of it disappears all together, and the rest sits on top of my face in a dry way that makes my face feel more dehydrated (kind of like a product that is overly mattifying). My skin doesn't feel hydrated or moisturized or soothed, just a little bit tight. Each time I try it I end up going back to whatever else I've been using after a couple of days because it truly feels like nothing is happening for my skin. I'd rather use something that isn't hydrating enough than FAB ultra repair cream, which is like 90 seconds of hydrating relief followed by absolutely nothing and then that weird slightly tight drying feeling.

I wish I could be on board w this product, and I think the price point is really great. It just does less than nothing for me. I've never tried a moisturizing/hydrating product before that does as little as this does for me.

Sunscreen -First Aid Beauty -Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40

This sunscreen is likely best for those of you with super dry skin not prone to break outs. I have the opposite skintype.

Needless to say, Im really not a fan of this. Before even applying it to my face I noticed there was a major white cast sampling it on the back of my hand. But I hoped it'd blend in once on my face. It takes a LOT of blending to make this "disappear" on me...and I'm paler than NC10.

It honestly feels like an average drugstore sunscreen to me, and that's not good. I found it heavy, greasy, and as if it left a film on my skin. My pores could not breathe. I broke out pretty horribly using this. The following ingredients in it cause hell for my acne: coconut derivatives, plant extracts, oils, vitamin e, and shea butter. Acne-prone gals (and guys) beware if those tend to clog your pores. Below is a full ingredient list.

Active ingredients:
Zinc/Titanium Dioxide

Inactive ingredients:
Water, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Steareth-2, Dimethicone, Squalane, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Alumina, Ceteareth-20, Colloidal Oatmeal, Urea, Allantoin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Copaifera Officinalis (Balsam Copaiba) Resin, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Chrysanthemum Parthenium (Feverfew) Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Ceramide NP, Tocopheryl Acetate, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Caprylyl Glycol, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, C13-14 Isoparaffin, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Polyhydroxystearic Acid, Laureth-7, Methicone, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Xanthan Gum, Polyacrylamide, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, EDTA.

Treatments (Face) -First Aid Beauty -Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum

on 5/6/2018 5:12:00 AM

I mostly used this as an antioxidant serum under other moisturiser/sunscreen. It is quite light as a moisturiser by itself and is not enough hydration for me. A clear gel, it does have a slightly tacky finish which was okay for me as I was layering under other items and it did not pill. In fact, my face feels a bit tight after this dries, which I don't like that much. I think like another reviewer, I tended to use more of this product than other serums per application because of that tight feeling, so not really economical. It's mid-range expensive, but as I don't have particularly sensitive skin, I won't spend the extra cash just to have this formulation. It did not cause me any irritation, but is a bit expensive for what it does.

Cleansers -First Aid Beauty -Face Cleanser

I can not get past the consistency of this cleanser. Reminds of dollar store cleansers. I only get this to work well with my memebox nooni marshmellow whip maker. With the foam maker, it becomes a light foam cleanser. However I only used this as a morning cleanser. If I used this without the foam maker, I found it left a residue.
