I’ve had eczema all my life. As an adult, it flares up especially during high-stress level periods and when I have not been eating enough green leafy vegetables to balance out all those tasty acidic fare I love but my body does not. So when Yu-Be, the moisturizing skin cream formula that was invented by a Japanese pharmacist in 1957, came across my desk for testing, I was intrigued. I didn’t automatically label it as an eczema salve. But since I was dealing with an outbreak, and there was an enormous amount of glycerin in its ingredients, I figured might as well try it on my inflammation.
To say I was blown away is an understatement. Within two days my flare up was COMPLETELY healed. I no longer felt a patch of dry, scale-y skin on my arm. Instead my fingers glazed over skin that was smooth and soft-to-the-touch. So how does it work? It’s made from a concentrated level of glycerin, which hydrates and soothes, along with Vitamins B2, C, E and camphor, which heals the irritation. The camphor scent dissipates within three minutes of application and I was left with a non-greasy panacea that is worth every, single penny! And, did I mention what it's made without? Sulfates, phalates and synthetic dyes. The B2 creates the yellow hue inside the bottle and a dime-sized amount did the fix with amazing celerity! So I say, run don’t walk, to get this true miracle in a bottle. $16 (1.2 oz. tube) to $29 (10.25 oz. pump bottle), available at local pharmacies, Sephora.com
and at Yu-be.com
