Moisturising Skin Cream
I use Yu-Be daily. Living in London (especially in winter) you need a good moisturiser that will last through the day to protect your skin from the elements. Yu-Be does just that. I use a medical grade retinoid which can leave my skin very sensitive, sore and peeling. Yu-Be to the rescue! Because Yu-Be contains camphor (which you may know keeps moths at bay) it doesn't completely sink into the skin but rather deeply penetrates whilst leaving a protective layer - almost like a film on top of the skin. I find that this not only locks in moisture for long periods of time but also helps to keep urban pollutants out of my sensitive skin, this means I do not have to use extreme cleansers to keep my skin clean. You can use Yu-Be on shaving rash, chapped lips and just generally dry skin. I would recommend this to those with acne as it is not clogging of pores.
The only downsides to this moisturiser are that some people may not like the camphor smell and that it's not practical to use in conjunction with foundation or concealer as it will clump together.

I have suffered from extremely dry lips for many years. I have tried many lip products from budget to expensive .. I used to carriy lip balm with me throughout winter, applying every hour or so to try to keep my skin from drying, flaking and peeling. This year I consulted a dermatologist who recommended I try Carmex (a product I hadn't come across) because she thought it worth a try before having freeze treatment which is used in the treatment of sun damage. Carmex, like the rest, did nothing.
I had one side of my lower lip frozen .. it scabbed up and the skin which grew beneath was slightly softer but still it became very crusty if I didn't "cream up" regularly.
By chance I was given a sample tube of Yu-Be cream when making a purchase in Space .. without any idea that it would be useful (.. it was just any old sample to try ...) I used it on my lips one night. At first I didn't catch on to the difference it made .. it was part way throught the following day when I realised my lips didn't feel so bad. I looked out the sample and used it again. After a couple of days the difference was marked - so much so that my husband could see. Since then (about a month ago) I have not looked back. I bought a full sized tube and I now have normal soft, pink-coloured lips, not the cracked sore nasty looking things I've been putting up with for years .. and I mean years. This cream has been a true break-through for me.

A must have
I bought this after being recommended in store and now I can't live without it. It goes in my handbag with me everywhere. I use it on my lips and even my hands.
