Beauty Road Test: Combat Winter Dry Skin With FAB Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer
Does the cold weather make your face all dry and itchy? Never fear: First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer is here!
I have pretty oily skin, so I’m usually wary about doing anything to it that might make it even shinier. That said, though, when the temperature starts to drop, my face often turns into a giant mess of itchy dryness. Ick! Definitely no fun.
Thank goodness for First Aid Beauty! I got the chance to road test their new Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer ($22, sephora.com and Sephora stores nationwide), and boy, am I glad I did. A riff on FAB’s cult favorite Ultra Repair Cream, this spectacular new moisturizer is designed specifically for your face.
What’s the magic ingredient? There’s actually a few of them: Oatmeal relieves itching and soothes irritated skin, shea butter moisturizes and nourishes, avocado and meadowfoam seed oil softens and hydrates, and licorice root, feverfew, and white tea provide a big ol’ boost of antioxidants.
I dabbed a little bit of the moisturizer onto my cheeks—the place my skin tends to dry out the most—right before bed and let it work its wonders overnight. And lo and behold, it’s been helping to keep the dryness at bay. No itchiness equals one extremely happy writer! I’m definitely adding this one to my fall and winter beauty routine, and I highly recommend that you do, too.
