The new (to me) moisturizer I swear by…

I was recently sent a tube of Yu-Be moisturizing skin cream. I’d never heard of the brand before but because I had a few super dry patches of skin plaguing my hands I was eager to try it out. And now I’m totally in love!

I love that, unlike petroleum based skincare products, Yu-Be’s highly concentrated glycerin formula isn’t greasy. It just soaks right into the skin! It’s also enriched with Vitamin E and B2 to nourish and repair. The formula was thought up by Japanese pharmacist, Yoshikiyo Nowatari, in 1957 and according to Yu-Be’s website, has been Japan’s soft skin secret ever since!

Now that I know how well the skin cream works, I want to try their whole range.

Oh, and if you know me and my obsession with Himalayan mountaineering at all, you’ll know THIS little nugget sealed the deal to make me a life long fan…

“Mountain climber and explorer, Sumiyo Tsuzuki, became the first Japanese woman to ever summit Mt. Everest from the difficult Tibet side in 1998. Wearing a 1.25oz. tube, taped to a shoelace around her neck, she overcame the extreme winds and sub-zero temperatures with the help of her trusted, Yu-Be Skin Cream.” 

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! I’m obsessed. 

P.S. You can find this and a lot of other products I love on the…*wait for it*…Products I Love page.
