Has Anyone Tried First Aid Beauty?

Recommended Posts

I have very sensitive skin and am looking for a gentle day cream to use in the morning before my make up. I had a terrible allergic reaction to one so I think I may need to go the organic, paraben free or hypoallergenic route cause all my other skin care items are of that nature.

 

I received a sample of First Aid Beauty's day cream at Sephora and was wondering if anyone with sensitive skin has used this before. I've never tried it and although the cream does everything I want it to (SPF, anti-aging, etc) I still get nervous. Has anyone tried First Aid Beauty? Does anyone know of any great day creams for sensitive skin?

i love first aid beauty, i tried the ultra repair cream and its been great for my sensitive and extremely dry skin.

the first time i used it it did burn but i only realized it was because i exfoliated my skin beforehand. other then that its great.

i would recommend it, no doubt.

I have one of the moisturizers  i think it's the ultra repair cream i use it at night over my retinol. it's pretty heavy and my skin doesn't seem as dry as it was last winter so i don't use it every night anymore i was looking for a moisturizer without a lot of active ingredients to use with the retinol Don't think i would buy it again  i just don't love it. I don't like the smell  kind of like nozema. i got the cellex c extra gla moisturizer last year and i liked that a lot better.

Honestly, someone at Sephora told me about it because she thought their facial cleanser would be a good cetaphil replacement. Well I tried it and honestly, I like Cetaphil better. I'm not impressed, but everything works different on different people.

Remember everyone has different skin and products can react differently from one person to the next. I have NEVER been allergic to anything in my life. I used the First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Restore Cream and had a really bad reaction all over my face and neck where I had applied the cream. It took a week to go away.  Good lesson to remember to always do a test patch even if it says allergy tested. This was a big lesson for me, having a first time allergic reaction though I will always do a test patch now. I'm still looking for a product that works, my skin is so dry in the winter.  sadyes.gif

Here is a link to a thread were some other MUT members have talked about First Aid Beauty.

I have not tried this brand myself, so I can't give an opinion.

Well we all have different skin type and for sensitive skin. Before using any cream consult dermatologist know your skin type and take experts advice before using any product ..

 

I think that will sure help you..

I had the very same experience!!! I have NEVER had a reaction... I was sampling 2/3 face creams... Did not do the "test patch" and thought it was another product because they market to sensitive skin and help with rosacea! Strange:(

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
