This winter has been intensely dry for my skin. I have dry patches all over my face, a crusty nose, and a flaky forehead. I have tried to double up on my moisturizers but my skin can’t seem to soak it up.
Youtubers are my frequent enablers that’s why I delved into the First Aid Beauty bandwagon.
The Ultra Repair Cream
This thing saved my skin multiple times. It is a thick cream that instantly gets absorbed into my skin and leave it supple. Whenever I’m not using this, my skin will literally peel off from dryness. I will definitely repurchase the biggest tub next time I come across a Sephora.
Retails for C$15 for 2 oz, C$37 for 6 oz, C$53 for 12 oz
Facial Radiance Pads
The little tub comes with circular pads that are soaked with the product. It was supposed to exfoliate, tone, and brighten but it didn’t really do much to my skin. It felt refreshing with a little sting when I put it on and that’s about it.
Not a bad product but I wouldn’t repurchase it.
Retails for C$18.50 for 28 pads and C$37 for 60 pads
Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask
This 10-minute mask feels like you are putting actual oatmeal on your face. It has oat bits and smells just like oatmeal. It does a good job on hydrating and soothing my dry and stressed out skin. I put this on about 3 times a week and my skin feels so plump right after especially if I follow it up with the Ultra Repair Cream.
Retails for C$28 for the 2 oz tube
I am definitely looking forward to trying out more First Aid Beauty products next time.
