As we head into the cold, dry months, I plan to be using my Yu-Be moisturizing skin cream even more. The cream hails from Japan and was created by pharmacist Yoshikiyo Nowatari in 1957. Enriched with vitamin E, vitamin B2 and camphor, the glycerin cream is highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. It works well on elbows, heels and knees.
I smooth a couple dabs on my face, especially when I plan to be out in the cold. It has a slight camphor scent, but it fades soon after application. Yu-Be contains no artificial colors or fragrances, is non-comedogenic and is 100-percent cruelty free.
