What a horrible product. It is marketed toward sensitive skin but contains Eucalyptus which, even in small amounts, is a skin irritant. I bought this last December and gradually started to develop small bumps throughout my skin. I was under the assumption that something in my skincare routine was causing it, however, I did not realize it was this product. I stopped using it for a couple weeks and the bumps disappeared. Once I started using the product again, my face immediately got so red and itchy so I ruled this to be the culprit of my 6 month skin irritation.

What concerns me is that manufacturers who sell higher end items should be more responsible in how they market their products. If consumers are paying extra, one would assume they would get better quality ingredients. This product set me back $12 for just 2oz of product and honestly it isn't anything special compared to moisturizers you can buy at the drugstore. Honestly, if you are suffering from dry skin and eczema, you most likely have sensitive skin. I would steer clear from this product. If you have normal skin that is not sensitive, give this a go.

I hate the tub, so I just use the squeeze bottle moisturizer. I love this moisturizing cream and it's the only face cream I will ever use! It's so gentle on my dry skin and it blends in seamlessly so I can apply makeup on top. I use it day and night and I know to always expect comfortable, moisturized skin.

I've adopted this as my standard face moisturizer, which I use both at day and night. I have only used the 2oz tubes (on my third tube at the moment), which I would favour over the tub even though it is better value.

It is ultra moisturizing and non-irritating. I imagine that some might find it too heavy for their face, but I have pretty dry skin, so I really like it.

I got this as part of a sampler kit at Sephora. I love the facial cleanser and lip balm, both of which are part of the kit, so it seemed like a no brainer. I have seborrheic dermatitis, so I had the brilliant idea last week to stop using Epionce lytic lotion, and to use this instead. The first thing I noticed was the eucalyptus scent, which is strange for a supposedly soothing, repairing cream, and I don't find it particularly pleasant. This cream not only made my skin burn, but it made the redness and flaking even worse. I will now use it only on areas that aren't sensitive, like my hands or feet, just to use it up, but I will never repurchase this. It really isn't good.

I bought this cream in the 2 oz tube to try out. I have extremely sensitive, acne-prone, combo skin. I've been recently going through a very DRY phase and desperately needed a proper moisturizing routine. I fell in love with the ingredient list of this cream (simple, no fragrance, antioxidants like white tea and licorice root, ceramide..) and read such stellar reviews from SO many people on reddit and other places that I was betting this to be my HG moisturizer for my face. I tested this out for a month or two.

PROS
- Has soothing oatmeal in it, which is what I was looking for my reactive skin. But without the strange feel Aveeno lotions give me..
- Love the little touch with antioxidants and other good-for-your-skin things in this.
- Very light weight. It feels like something between a runny lotion and a cream to me. Absorbs right in.
- Fresh-looking, attractive packaging. I just really like blues!
- Sinks in and doesn't leave greasy feel that I HATE on my body.

CONS
- Expensive (for me anyways).
- Burns my skin every time I put it on! :( It fades after a few minutes. I got this because it was guaranteed for sensitive skin, but alas, I must have very, very sensitive skin.
- Not moisturizing enough for my face or my body..

All in all, I think this is a good moisturizer for those whose skin doesn't react negatively to it like mine did. I was really sad/disappointed that this didn't turn out to be my HG but I guess this is a good thing in the long run since I'm on a budget! It does seem quite overpriced to me. I'm glad I tried it out though.

I could take or leave this product. I think it depends on what I plan on using it for. I have about 20 sample tubes of this and decided to start using it on my hands. I'm a nurse living in frigid NY weather and almost always try to keep a little tube of hand lotion in my scrub pockets! This winter has been worse on my hands than I can remember in a long time. They are red, irritated, and sand-papery. I thought this would be a good choice and it was to an extent. But it didn't work any miracles. Especially for $30. It was light, yet rich, and nongreasy. Worth a shot as a splurge, but nothing I would purchase consistently.

I have really dry skin and have used multiple moisturizers to try to fix the dry patches on my face in the winter and keep my skin moisturized. I've tried argan oil and the clinique moisturizer but they did not really work or felt too oily on the skin. This inexpensive product, the First Aid Ultra Repair cream, feels so nice on the skin and has kept my dry patches away all winter. It doesn't feel oily at all and absorbs very nicely into the skin. I would highly recommend it.

So, I bought this at winner's for 16.99, which is why I bought it. I had been debating whether or not to splurge $28 on it, and I'm glad I didn't..

Firstly, I have DRY eczema skin. Sometimes my skin breaks out into eczema patches where it gets REEEALLY red and dry... This happened around the time I bought the cream, so I figured I would use the cream for a while after my skin stopped being so red - to give it a fair review...

At first, it wasn't doing much for my skin at all... It kinda made my patches flare up temporarily, and I didn't feel like it was all that moisturizing. It does absorb into my skin, but not as well as my sephora (ultra?) moisturizer. (granted the sephora one doesn't moisturize SUPER well either, but it's awesome).

Now, my skin is doing much better, but lately, I've been noticing some minor break outs on my cheeks. Let me just say, I NEVER BREAK OUT. Not once in my life have I broken out. I have had maybe a FEW acne spots but never more than like..3 or 4 at a time.. right now, it's VERY LIGHT and not a full blown pimple, but there are several... They're like little bumps on my cheeks, and I feel like this new problem can be attributed to the F.A.B. moisturizer... I really really wanted to like this, and now that my eczema isn't so bad (maybe BECAUSE of the cream?) it's actually kinda nice... But I'm scared to keep using it..

I will update this review when I get a more accurate...perspective on this situation, but for now, I think I will stop using it on my face.

I would buy this again for my skin IF it doesn't actually break me out AND if it's not for full price... However, for $30, I think you can buy something much better. I might try out some Kiehl's products instead for only like $7 more.

This moisturiser is amazing. Its so light and absorbs so quickly leaving my skin as soft as a baby! My skin is super sensitive and some mousturisers make my skin go almost scaley. The harsh canadian winter had my face really flakey and this sorted it out so quickly. Not only feels great on but really brightens up the face. Super product.
