Product Rave: First Aid Beauty!

I've been raving about my First Aid Beauty body moisturiser for the past few weeks so I thought it was about time I did a full review on my blog for you all.

I hadn't heard of First Aid Beauty (or 'FAB') before I received a sample of their body moisturiser in my GlossyBox a few months ago, but I'm so glad I've discovered this brand. If you haven't heard of them, they are a back-to-basics skincare line that is great for sensitive skin. They are unscented and don't contain paragons, phthalates, alcohol or artificial dyes.

The two products I've tried from the brand are the Body Moisturiser and the Ultra Repair Cream. These two products are actually pretty similar in terms of formulation and texture, but the Ultra Repair Cream is slightly richer and more moisturising.

Both are very rich and creamy. They feel more like a balm on the skin than a cream, but are absorbed very quickly. These have been so wonderful for the sensitive skin on my upper arms, chest and back. The Ultra Repair Cream is especially great for these areas as well as dry elbows, knees and toes!

The best thing about both of these products is that they leave your skin feeling totally non-greasy, yet super-soft. It's almost impossible to find intensive moisture treatment products that aren't super greasy, so if you suffer from dry and sensitive skin I'd thoroughly recommend this brand!

The one downside to the body moisturiser is that the packaging isn't ideal. The texture of the product is super thick and rich, so it can be a little difficult to get out of the bottle. I think it would be much better in a squeeze-able tube, like the Ultra Repair Cream.

If you live in the US, you can pick up FAB products in Sephora. For everyone else, you can find them at feelunique.com with free international delivery! The Body Moisturiser retails for £13 or $18, and the Ultra Repair Cream for £8 or $12. They aren't the most affordable body products, but in my opinion they are well worth it, especially if you suffer with sensitive, irritable skin!
