Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream Review & Giveaway


New winner picked secondary to #18 not responding:



My skin is perpetually dry…no matter the season, the temp, it remains dry.  With fall quickly approaching, the colder weather quickly drys out hands, cuticles, and caused chapped lips, etc.  I am always on the lookout for moisturizing skin creams and today I want to introduce you to a company called Yu-Be.  First a little about Yu-Be:

It was 1957 when a young pharmacist named Yoshikiyo Nowatari first introduced his now famous moisturizing cream to Japan. His creation was invented at the request of a woman long-suffering from dry, cracked skin. She was tired of using petroleum-based skin care products that she found to be greasy, messy and ineffective. With the help of a chemist and a special manufacturing process, he created a glycerin-based moisturizer that would go on to be one of the longest-selling skin care products in Japan and the #1 selling medicated, vitamin-enriched cream on the market.

Mr.Nowatari chose to sell his product as a “medicated” skin care cream so families would know it was for their use on tough, dry skin -as opposed to other “beauty”, “wrinkle” or “anti-aging” creams on the market. In the 50 years since it’s birth, this moisturizer has attracted and kept a massive and loyal customer base in Japan. Generations of families have used the concentrated formula on all types of dry skin – from split cuticles and cracked heels to diaper rash – even frostbite – and to this day refuse to use anything else.

What is Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin CreamInvented by a Japanese pharmacist, it is a Glycerin-based moisturizing cream enriched with Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, and Camphor.  It’s the uniquely high Glycerin content and absorbability, achieved through a special manufacturing process in Japan, which makes Yu-Be so effective on severe and dry skin and truly sets it apart from other creams.

Yu-Be was kind enough to send me their entire line to review:

Yu-Be Foaming Skin Polish:    ($18.00)

Fine grains of rice bran combine with bamboo and gentle cleansing agents to create a luxuriously foaming scrub that washes away dry skin. Extracts of ginger root and ginseng tone and balance the skin, while green tea, geranium oil and camphor provide a soothing, refreshing sensation.

My take:  I really liked this product, a little goes along way and boy could I feel my skin tingle when I applied the Foaming Skin Polish.

Moisturizing Body Lotion:    (10.25 oz pump $29.00)

Our glycerin formula with a unique blend of vitamin E, B2 and camphor provides ideal daily hydration and protection for many troublesome dry skin conditions. The perfect year-round, all-over body moisturizer.

  • Smooth, easy-to-apply glycerin lotion helps hydrate, soothe and smooth dry, sensitive skin.
  • Moisturizes and protects against dry skin during the cold months – then soothes sunburns and replenishes moisture in the summer. (Yu-Be does not contain SPF protection)

My take:  If you like floral scents be warned this is not for you.  I would describe the initial scent almost as medicinal but as it is quickly absorbs into the skin the medicine like smell goes away.  My husband couldn’t detect the smell 3 minutes after I applied it.  I loved the fact that I did not feel greasy after applying the Moisturizing Body lotion.  Another great thing…you can apply it everywhere…your body, face, and even lips!

Yu-Be Moisturizing Lip Therapy:   ($5.00)

The ingredients are based on the original 50 year old Japanese Yu-Be formula and includes Vitamin E and camphor. This product is highly effective for moisturizing, healing and soothing dry chapped lips. Please note that this product does not contain SPF protection.

My take:  Hands down one of the best lip balms I have ever used.  Again it starts out with a medicinal smell that quickly goes away…I would recommend this to everyone!

Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream:  ($24.00)

Yu-Be Moisturizing Cream contains these leading skin conditioning ingredients:

  • Glycerin – Natural “Humectant” attracts and retains moisture in the skin, making it softer.
  • Vitamin E – Natural anti-oxidant and skin protector.
  • Vitamin B2 – Helps to smooth rough or damaged skin – also gives Yu-Be it’s yellow color.
  • Camphor – Helps soothe minor skin irritations – mild scent fades in minutes leaving skin feeling healthy.
  • * Concentrated moisturizer helps hydrate, heal, soothe and smooth severe dry skin
  • * Helps heal split cuticles and smooth rough, dry skin on hands, elbows, knees and feet.
  • * Helps protect and moisturize skin exposed to cold, wind, water and sun.
  • * Non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and locks in for hours. Good for all day or all night.
  • * Contains no artificial colors or fragrances.

My take:  Excellent for very dry chapped skin such as feet or elbows.  Do not need to use on a daily basis, overnight does the trick.

Yu-Be has a great offer to try 3 different Yu-Be samples for free (all you have to pay is $4.95 for S & H).  You have your choice of 2 different sample packs:  Skin Cream, Body Lotion, and Skin Polish or 3 pack of Yu-Be Skin Cream Tubes.
