Review: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Product Line*

Hey Guys,
Today I am going to share my thoughts on some products by First Aid Beauty. The products are from their Ultra repair line which now include hydrating serum, cleansing bar, and lip balm. For those of you unfamiliar with First Aid Beauty (FAB), it is a well known skincare line created with scientifically advanced formulas that are dermatologist recommended, allergy tested, paraben free and fragrance free. Their products are for all skin types and focus on solutions for both chronic and everyday skin concerns from head to toe. I am also proud to say that FAB is based in Massachusetts! This is very cool for me considering I have lived in MA all of my life. Keep reading to learn about the products and to hear my thoughts on each.

My thoughts:
I really liked this serum! Sometimes my gel moisturizer just isn't hydrating enough. Especially in the winter. This is a perfect solution to my problem. I have tried other moisturizers but always go back to my go to. Layering this serum with my moisturizer adds extra hydration. The serum alone is definitely moisturizing however, when I add my moisturizer I can almost feel it taking longer to soak into my skin. The serum acts like an extra layer or barrier that keeps my skin from soaking up the moisturizer too quickly. Some people may not even need a moisturizer and would just replace it with this.  The Ultra Repair Serum has not scent and isn't sticky at all. I like that it comes with a pump for application. The directions say to use 1 to 2 pumps AM and PM. I use only one pump since I pair this with a moisturizer. I think 2 pumps would be better if you are only using this serum without a moisturizer. I don't have any wrinkle concerns so I can't say that it helped with that. I do feel like my skin has felt more hydrated and look better overall since using this serum.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Gentle Cleansing Bar $14.00

Here is what is said about this product on the FAB site:
"Ultra Repair Gentle Cleansing Bar is a moisture-rich bar soap that gently and effectively cleanses head to toe, while simultaneously nourishing and calming. Formulated with Ultra Repair’s skin loving ingredients, including Colloidal Oatmeal and Allantoin, to calm and soothe, as well as Shea Butter and Squalene to moisturize, hydrate and help preserve the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Botanical-rich FAB Antioxidant Booster and Vitamin E further enrich this gentle formula. The creamy cleansing lather rinses easily and leaves skin residue-free. Free of fragrance and skin irritating ingredients, this head-to-toe soap is safe for all members of the family, even children and babies. Ultra Repair Gentle Cleansing Bar provides effective cleansing while leaving skin hydrated, soft and smooth."

My thoughts:
To be honest, this isn't my favorite product in the Ultra Repair line. I can appreciate that it has a bunch of great ingredients and would be great for someone with sensitive skin. I just didn't love it. It didn't sud up as much as my normal cocoa butter bar soap that I use and I prefer that over this. This may be a great product for someone that has skin issues or wants something to use for the whole family. This was just a miss for me personally.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm $20.00

Here is what is said about this product on the FAB site:
"Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm is a concentrated lip treatment that treats and helps prevent, chapped, distressed lips. Drawing on the natural healing power of bees, this formula includes Honey, a natural humectant that attracts and holds moisture in the skin; Beeswax, a natural emollient that provides deep moisturization and Propolis Extract, a honey protein that helps repair damage and restore skin. Colloidal Oatmeal, a hallmark ingredient in Ultra Repair, helps soothe lips. The rich, buttery balm blankets lips with long-lasting hydration to instantly relieve discomfort and dryness. Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm provides instant relief and long-term protection to keep lips nourished, soft and smooth."

My thoughts:
This lip balm is a great repair treatment! It doesn't have a scent and is a thick texture. There is definitely grittiness in it and has a waxy feeling on the lips. It may not be for everyone but it really helped my lips! I have had chapped, burning, and cracked lips lately and this lip balm has helped repair them each night. When my lips are feeling extra dry and cracked, I put on a decent layer of this before bed and in the AM. It has helped repair and moisturize them each time I have used it. You could use this every night if you wanted, but I use this more like a repair treatment. It has a cooling effect that really feels nice on burning lips.

Overall, I really enjoyed trying out these products! My favorite product out of the three is the Ultra Repair Serum. I would love to try more First Aid Beauty products. I hear their cleansers and masks are awesome. It is really important to take care of your skin and to understand that skin matters in your overall health. Taking care of your skin also helps in your appearance and the overall fight against aging. First Aid Beauty has a huge focus on this which I really appreciate. FAB is sold at both Ulta and Sephora as well as on their own website.
