First Aid Beauty (FAB) Ultra Repair Cream Review

Disclosure: Amazon affiliate link used.

If you have extremely sensitive skin, especially in the winter, and you’re looking for a great facial moisturizing cream that is petroleum free, I have found your product!

Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty (FAB) is an intense therapy skin protectant formulated to hydrate dry, parched skin.

A few thoughts on this product: it’s a very light whipped cream consistency, making ideals for sensitive skin. If you want your moisturizers to feel thick and greasy, this is not it. Designed for the face as well as the body, I found that FAB’s Ultra Repair Cream was great for chapped skin around my nose when I had a cold. It’s also great for kids’ chapped faces since it’s not greasy and it’s unscented. Now this isn’t a daily moisturizer with an SPF that I’d wear daily, but it’s ideal for irritated skin, especially in the winter. FAB does offer a full line of products for the face, including a daily face moisturizer, eye cream and cleanser.

I wasn’t familiar with FAB, founded in 2009 and specializing in safe and effective beauty skin care products. FAB products are free of harsh chemicals and known allergens, including parabens, phthalates, alcohol, fragrances and artificial dyes. Some of their products are also FDA-approved OTC formulas that target skin issues such as eczema and acne.

Giveaway: Aveeno Celebrates National Oatmeal Month

Disclosure: I received product samples in exchange for this giveaway post. Affiliate links used.

My skin gets really dry in the winter and I’m constantly applying lotion to battle the dry skin doldrums. One of my all-time favorite brands of lotion is Aveeno.

January is National Oatmeal Month and Aveeno offers several products that contain natural colloidal oatmeal, which is a natural anti-itch remedy (we even use oatmeal baths and shampoos on our dogs in the winter!) and perfect for delicate and sensitive skin. I love their lotion because my entire family can use it since it’s gentle and fragrance free.

Since 1937, the AVEENO® Brand has been utilizing the moisturizing and soothing properties of oatmeal in their products. In celebration of National Oatmeal Month, I’ve partnered with Aveeno to give away one bottle of AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion and one bottle of AVEENO® Baby Daily Moisture to one lucky reader.

Agadir Argan Oil Hair Shield Intense Creme Treatment Review

What can I say, I am not always very kind to my hair. I actually made a major (to me, ha!) decision about my hair before the holidays and went all brunette. For years I have had my hair highlighted blonde and I blow dry it at least four days a week as well as use a curling iron so I’m rough on my hair.

Whenever I see a stylist, they always uses a treatment before they blows out my hair but I haven’t found a good product I’ve wanted to stick with at home. I’ve been testing out Agadir Argan Oil Hair Shield Intense Creme for a couple months now and I use it each time I blow dry my hair. I love the scent and I feel like I’m protecting my hair from the damaging heat of my hair dryer. Although I’d love to let my hair air dry more often, with work and school days it’s just not possible. I’ve used shampoos and conditioners with Argan Oil and I love the way it helps my hair look and feel healthier.

Agadir Argan Oil Hair Shield Intense Creme contains Heat Shock Protein and Anti-Oxidants. The heat from your styling tool (whether it’s your hair dryer or curling iron) activates the Shock Protein to help repair, protect, hydrate and condition the damaged areas of your hair. It also helps condition, elminate frizz, and adds definition and shine.

Argan Hair Treatment 617x1024 Agadir Argan Oil Hair Shield Intense Creme Treatment Review

I am loving this hair treatment and I would definitely recommend it if you use your hair dryer and a curling iron as often as I do. I’ve always had trouble getting my hair looking “blow out smooth” and this product has helped me tame my frizz and natural curl. It comes in a large 10 oz. pump bottle and retails for $29.99. You can find it on the Agadir website or Amazon. If you try this creme hair protection treatment I’d love to know what you think about it! Now my challenge is to keep my middle school age daughter from using my hair care products.
