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.

Rich creme is absorbed instantly and leaves my skin super-soft. I have been using it on my toddler's rough patches and it helps but not as much as if I use a slather of regular moisturizer like a gold bond or what-have-you. It does amazing things to the back of my hands, but it doesn't smell very nice so I don't see using it as a hand creme. I probably won't buy it again, but it's very nice and worth a try.

This is a great moisturizer for dry skin. I have severely dry, sensitive skin due to chronic medical conditions and am always looking for the best hydrating product. This is definitely one of the most hydrating moisturizers I've come across. I deal with flakes and dry patches every day and this definitely helps reduce them and even add a sort of subtle luminosity to dull looking skin. However, there was one problem with this product that put me off from ever buying it again. It burned my face so badly some days I had to wash it off. This was weird to me because it was marketed towards sensitive skin. I figure it's just my skin (you know, the type where sometimes even water will sting on a dry patch) and no one else will have this problem. I used the entire tube and thought it was great for my dryness but the burning prevents me from buying it. However, I definitely recommend it because I don't think anyone else will have the same problem with irritation as I do. All in all, a fantastic moisturizer.

I received a sample of this in my last Sephora order and I love it so much I have already ordered the full size tub. I personally have not been using this like a regular moisturizer though. I had seen that this is great for all dry areas. I have been using it on my hands that have eczema in the winter. This is the only cream that has been moisturizing enough and helping the dryness on my hands. I have tried various creams including one listed as an eczema blend. None of those creams can compare to this Ultra Repair Cream. The smell is a little blah, but not intolerable. The only downsides for me is the price is high. If you are having trouble with dry skin especially eczema, this is the cream you need to try.

Pass. This irritated my skin, making it drier. It also didn't hydrate. The texture felt a tiny bit waxy, it didn't absorb in as nicely as I'd like. Total pass.
