Review- Yu-be Moisturizing Skin Cream Review

Yu-be Moisturizing Skin Cream is Japan's #1 selling medicated, vitamin-enriched cream in Japan. It is a glycerin-based moisturizing cream with Vitamin E, B-2 and Camphor. It was tested at the summit of Mt. Everest by the first Japanese woman to ever summit Everest's difficult North Ridge. She taped a tube to a shoelace around her neck! Yu-be is safe and effective on all the dry skin areas of your body including your face and lips (works great on kids too). It contains no artificial colors or fragrances. It is recommended for rashes, eczema, dermatitis and other inflammation, cracking and itching in addition to just dry skin. Yu-be has been around for 50 years in Japan and is now available in the U.S. and around the world.

This is the most versatile cream I've ever used! I've been using it for weeks now on my lips, my hands (especially my cuticles), my face and my feet. It is super-moisturizing and has even taken care of the callouses on my feet. They now always look as if I've had a pedicure. The cream is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way. It has a pleasant camphor scent which disappears in a minute or two. Yu-be is great under lipstick as it absorbs completely and allows smooth application. I think it will be the perfect thing for wind-chapped skin. They are very careful to warn you that it has no SPF (I wish more companies did this). I'm very happy I found this product, I'll be using it from now on.
$24 for 4.25 oz. jar

I have to admit that I too like the camphor scent of the Yu-Be. In fact I love it. I used to use lip balms with camphor so when I got this and one of the uses was for the lips I jumped on that. This is very different from any balm I have used on my lips though. Lip balms carry the scent of camphor the entire time they are on; this has an initial scent that lingers for a moment and once it's absorbed it's completely gone so EVEN if you hate the scent of camphor it's dissipates into thin air in almost no time at all. This cream is a buttery yellow tone and reminds me of a cross between Vaseline & Aquaphor but not as heavy. It is still heavy but doesn't coat in the same way. It's a little lighter.
I have found that for me, since I am a paper pusher this is a great product for my cuticles and overall hand moisture. It's amazing how much paper dries me out. I have been using this on my hands, lips and feet. I love to sleep with socks on and slather a little extra on. I wake up with baby soft tootsies... I love that. Also when I use on my hands, I can wash and it's not completely gone, it does add a little barrier as long as I am not scrubbing my hands clean.Overall this is a small tube but I use less than a pea-sized amount for each area. This little tube will last and I am excited to have it in my arsenal for the approaching winter months when the heat turns on all the moisture in my home is GONE.
Great product and I hope they introduce some other products. Also for all you skiers out there I am positive this will be amazing for your faces, no more wind burns.

This is a great cream! I have been using the Yu-be on my super dry and scaly elbows and the results have been nothing short of amazing. My elbows are no longer scaly and any red discoloration that was there has now faded. In addition to using the Yu-be on my elbows I have been using it on my brittle cuticles. I must say I have seen tremendous improvement and now sport more manicured looking nail beds. My five year old daughter sampled the product and is always telling me she has dry skin just so she has a reason to use the Yu-be cream.The Yu-be cream has an almost whipped consistency and the camphor odor does indeed vanish rather quickly. I agree with Cityslicker that the Yu-be product does seem to leave a protective barrier on your hands even after washing. My experience with this product has been fantastic and I would recommend it. One other great thing about the Yu-be cream is that it is safe to use on children. We live in a neighborhood where the kids play outside all the time so I am sure that I will be applying the Yu-be to some chapped cheeks this winter.
