First Aid Beauty – Ultra Repair Liquid Recovery

image

I bought this product when i was looking for products that can help relieve dry patches.

About the Product
First Aid Beauty aims to create luxurious yet highly effective product for those with problem skin. I bought the product because the ingredients did not contain anything that I know I will be sensitive to or will lead to outbreak on my face. In my recent trip to Bali, i brought this little bottle along to test the effectiveness of the product. Before I go on, here is the ingredient list:

INGREDIENTS
-Avena Sativa Oat Kernel Extract: Relieves itching and soothes dehydrated skin.
-Sodium Hyaluronate: Draws moisture into the skin, plumping the skin and supporting natural collagen levels.
-Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract: Relieves redness and aids in skin recovery.
-Propolis Extract: Repairs UV and other environmental damage, enhancing the skin’s own natural collagen production.

Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Ahnfeltia Concinna Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Propolis Extract, Chrysanthemum Parthenium (Feverfew) Extract, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis (Licorice) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Bisulfite.

Using the Product
I will wash my face and apply a teaspoon of this product on my face before applying anything else. I had used this together with my Albion Herbal Oil Gold and Albion Skin Conditioner. When the watery liquid is dispensed, i will distribute it on both my palms and spread it quickly all over my face. My skin did feel plumped up and somewhat hydrated forbthat few minutes. The redness on my face did seem to calm down slightly but I maintain that SKII Facial Treatment Essence (which I had used for about 2 to 3 years before switching to cheaper pharmacy brands) is much more effective in that department.

I observed that the hydration did not last very long and after using it for a week, I didn’t think it is worth the price. The watery texture does tend to make me feel that I may be wasting the product especially when it drips down my hand.

My verdict? Unlikely to repurchase coz its pricy and did not seem to be as effective as I hope it would be in truly improving the moisture level in my skin.

Where to Buy the Product
Well, I bought it at Sephora in Singapore. Due to my disappointment I didn’t bother to check if its sold online – i believe it would be elsewhere or on its official website.

Have you used any FAB products and worked?

Marc Anthony – Moroccan Argan Oil

I was introduced Marc Anthony Moroccan Oil when I received it as a gift from a relative. This is an amazingly fragrant oil that is neither too thick nor too thin to be applied on my hair.  These days, I carry it around with me whenever I go to the gym or vacation.

Marc Anthony Moroccan Oil
Lightweight moisturizer for dry hair

Stored in a slim bottle that is about 15 cm tall, the oil that in translucent yellow can be pumped onto the hand (for me 1 pump is sufficient) and applied to moist or dried hair. Personally I prefer to apply this to the hair ends when it is still moist from toweling dry. For those of you who use the hair dryer, make sure the hair is not fully dried when you apply this oil before continuing with further drying.

I thought the oil carries a fragrant jasmine / frangipani scent with nutty undertones. It feels calming when I apply before I go to bed. When you wake up the next morning, the hair looks well nourished and knot free.

I loved this bottle so much that I bought another bottle so that I can have one bottle ready at home.

Go grab a bottle from your nearby pharmacy or Watsons now!
