If you need a product that gives a lightweight, comfortable layer of moisture, then this is the product for you. Not to be confused with the cult favorite First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, this is a non-greasy, non-intrusive hydrating cream that performs well in a variety of situations on a multitude of skins. It is packed with powerhouse ingredients to soothe redness and inflammation, even out skin tone, brighten the complexion, and repair the skin barrier.
One of the ways this product has become a superstar for me is as an after-shave treatment. Most of the after-shave products on the market are too irritating for me and this calms down any inflammation I may have and provides an essential barrier on my skin without suffocating it. I also love this during the hot, humid summer months when anything too thick feels unbearable. It has layered well with every other product I have combined it with in my routine. I would recommend it for almost any skin situation, with the exception being dryness or severe dehydration. If that’s you, you would probably appreciate something more along the lines of the famous sibling, the Ultra Repair Cream.
Overall, this is a great product with an amazing cocktail of ingredients at a reasonable price. I have yet to find another moisturizer with such a great mix of reparative, beneficial actives in such a lightweight formula. I keep this in my collection at all times and usually have a back-up as well.
