Yu-Be Skincare Product Review

Since 1957, Yu-Be remains one of the longest and best selling skin care products in Japan today.

It is a concentrated glycerin moisturizer which can help hydrate the upper layer of the skin. It can also help soothe and smooth rough dry skin.

It is absorbed instantly, and stays locked in for hours to keep your skin soft and smooth.

It was 1957 when a young pharmacist named Yoshikiyo Nowatari first introduced his now famous concentrated glycerin moisturising cream, which is also vitamin enriched to Japan. Since then, generations of families have faithfully used his product. It’s the uniquely high glycerin content and absorbability, achieved through a special manufacturing process in Japan, which makes Yu-Be so effective on extremely dry skin and truly sets it apart from other creams. Yu-Be has been using it for split cuticles, cracked heels, diaper rash, a daily moisturizer and even frostbite. YuBe is the #1 selling medicated vitamin enriched skincare in Japan.


In fact, professional climber and world explorer, Sumiyo Tsuyuki took Yu Be to the top of Mount Everest and to the bottom of the world to the South Pole of Antarctica!


The first Yu Be skin care product I tried is their moisturizing skin cream. This is a concentrated glycerin moisturizer so a little goes a long way. I use it on my feet and heels which are very dry. And I rub it into my elbows, hands and neck each night.  I’ve never been a fan of petroleum-based products because they can clog your pores over time.  Yu Be, however, is glycerin-based and I have no problem using it on my face and lips as well.  Yu Be also makes their skin cream in a travel size tube which I carry in my purse at all times. This product is perfect for instant hydration, especially after a long flight.

The next product I tried is Yu Be’s Moisturizing Body Lotion. This is a non-greasy formula which really absorbs quickly and the moisture stays locked in for hours. I noticed a difference in the appearance of my hands after only one application! Yu Be’s body lotion is created with a blend of vitamin E, B2 and camphor which is perfect for daily body hydration.

And finally, I tried Yu Be’s Foaming Skin Polish.  This face and body scrub cleans, exfoliates and softens your skin each day.  This cleanser contains fine grains of rice and bamboo to gently scrub your skin.  It also contains extracts of ginger root and ginseng which tone and balance your skin.  And Yu Be also adds green tea, geranium oil and camphor to sooth your skin.

Yu Be products are such a wonderful find and I will be a long time fan. And Yu Be will even send you FREE SAMPLES in the mail to try out all of their exceptional products!  Just go to their website and click on the “Free Samples” icon!
