I was travelling to cold countries where I knew I would be exposed to cold winds, low temperatures etc and I really wanted a good all in one cream that would keep the dryness at bay.
The First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream was my pick. It’s a white coloured thick rich emulsion like cream. Consistency and texture wise it’s a bit similar to the Bath & Body Works Triple Moisture creams. It’s really thick but non greasy. It does however need a few minutes to sink in and get absorbed. But after that your skin is supple and soft for almost the whole day. You generally feel a bit of dryness in the evening.
It’s perfect to carry while travelling because you can use it on your face and body which just saves so much space and time. Its meant for dry skin but people with sensitive, irritated or certain conditions like eczema or psoriasis (see entire list below) can also use it. I wouldn’t suggest this for people with oily skin mainly because it might feel too heavy.
The fragrance is very unlike anything I tried before, sweets and candy. I know it says it’s fragrance free but mine really does smell like candy! It’s a bit minty and sweet. It’s not too strong, so I’m fine with it.
I’m so pleased with this purchase! It’s not something I use in my daily routine but I save it for when I’m travelling. Definitely buying this again when I run out!
The packaging is a nice tube with a flip open cap and easy to travel with and carry around in your purse. This one in the tube is 56.7g and you also get a larger version in a tub. It’s around £9.00 (almost Rs.900) but I got this at a discount from FeelUnique! So keep your eye out for sales if the price is steep for you.
