I could retire on the money I've spent over the years on high-end moisturizers. I've tried them all -- La Prairie, La Mer, Sisley. It turns out this $24 jar of cream is it. I purchased it as a hand cream, tried it on my face one day and never looked back. Just buy it, you won't be sorry. Thank you, Japan!

Every winter my hands end up dry, cracked and, at some point, bleeding. It's just an unfortunate inevitability. No matter how much heavy cream, vitamin E oil or even Neosporin I used, nothing kept my hands soft and well-moisturized during the coldest months of the year... until I discovered Yu-Be!

After doing extensive research on the best creams for cracked skin, my mother-in-law bought me a tube of Yu-Be for Christmas. She purchased a couple other brands of heavy creams, too, in hopes that one or all would heal my poor hands. I wasn't terribly satisfied with the other creams, but the tube of Yu-Be was the best gift anyone's given me in a long time! A few days of use, and my hands felt wonderful. After a week, they were in better shape than they are even in summer months. I loved it so much that I purchased a tube for my purse and a jar for home from Amazon just before I finished off the tube I received as a gift. The price per ounce is better when you buy the jar, but the tube is convenient. Whichever you choose, this product is well worth the money! A little bit goes a long way in repairing frazzled skin, meaning a small tube lasts a long time and makes this product an even better buy.

When you first apply Yu-Be, it feels a little greasy, but it absorbs in a matter of minutes, leaving skin soft and silky feeling. I try to apply it just to the backs of my hands, since my palms are usually fine; I then rub the backs of my hands together to spread it around, sometimes put the excess on my elbows, rub my hands together to thoroughly work it in the rest of the way, and then wipe my palms so I don't spread the cream onto anything I might touch before it's fully absorbed.

I am going to say that this Yu-be is really good stuff. It really is. I'm also going to let the buyer be aware that this is the EXACT same stuff as YuskinA which is the way it's marketed in Japan. Yu-Be is the western market name for the SAME exact thing. The difference is size and price. It's major. For 2.5 ounces of Yu-Be you're paying $25.00 plus/or free shipping. For YuskinA you pay $25.00 for 9.171 ounces of product plus free shipping! That's about 7 more ounces of product you're getting! Yes the YuskinA comes directly from Japan so the wait time can be longer --I waited 1 month. But for me personally I think it's worth the wait and weight! I actually used my YuskinA to refill my Yu-Be jar so I can carry it in my purse. If you're looking for good quality skin cream and don't care about price, stick with Yu-Be otherwise get the YuskinA and save your money. Don't waste it on re-packaging and marketing of the exact same product.

Feedback about the product: The product is a copy of the really good stuff, Yu-Skin, sold in Japan as yuskinA. If you are looking for an alternative and do not have relatives in Japan who can get it for you, or are not flying over there to get some. It works. It is a bit different, in that its thinner. Real yuskinA is thicker. This stuff is not as thick, but it does the same. The bottle is 70g where as the bottle of yuskinA is 120g in size. So beware, its a smaller sized container. Also since its thinner you use more, faster. For the price its not really a great deal. You can buy the real yuskinA in Japan for around $6 USD, where as this is $25.00 kind of a huge rip-off, but like I said, if you dont have any alternatives, you are stuck buying this.

Only reason I got this was to see the difference with normal yuskinA and to get it faster, since most sellers of the real stuff ship from Japan which could take up to 10 days. My thoughts, if you are gonna spend $25 on this, go ahead and wait the extra few days and spend the money on the real stuff from a seller in Japan.

This product is EXCELLENT!
I have eczema and in the winter my skin gets even itchier and dryer. When you're over 50 you need all the help you can get with your skin.
Well, I purchased this product and followed exactly what is said on the back of the jar and from knowledge after having this skin problem since birth.
Anyway, I took a soft haired brush (like the one you use when scrubbing your back) and I brushed my skin from top to bottom very gently, then I got into the shower and washed my skin with Philosophy, then out of the shower I patted my skin dry and applied a thin coat of Yu-Be. The Camphor concerned me at first, but once it hit my skin a coolness started and as I rubbed in the cream my skin felt smoother then EVER before. I put on my PJ's and went to bed and when I got up in the morning my skin was as if I never had anything wrong with it and sooooo smooth. WOWSERS!
The only thing that makes me sad is I need a lot of this cream for my adult body, so I've decided to apply a generous coat for a month and then start cutting back to a thin coat. GREAT product! Can't go wrong if you have sensitive, dry skin and if you have hard water this product will make your skin all better.
