Lilli Gordon, CEO & founder of First Aid Beauty (FAB) started this skincare line to cater to the needs of individuals who suffer from serious skincare problems, and are tired of searching for the perfect remedy.

“FAB products blend therapeutic action with luxurious textures and smart packaging and delivery systems.  No longer do individuals with tough skin conditions have to sacrifice luxury and beauty, nor do they have to tolerate greasy creams and bland formulas. (source)”

Select products also boast FDA-approved over-the-counter formulations that target specific skin issues such as eczema and acne. The result is true first aid beauty and a collection of products that may be used safely by even the most sensitive skin types.

The first product from First Aid Beauty I will review is the Face Cleanser – Daily Treatment with FAB Antioxidant Booster ($18).

Description:

A MILD FACE CLEANSER THAT FEELS LUXURIOUS
FAB Face Cleanser gently cleanses the skin, removes surface oils, make up, dirt and grime. Its whipped texture transforms into a rich cream when blended with water. It is infused with a powerful botanical antioxidant blend that works hard to scavenger free radicals. 
WHO SHOULD USE IT?

FAB Face Cleanser is ideal for sensitive or irritated skin, skin that is undergoing treatment, or as a gentle alternative for healthy skin.

BENEFITS

Preserves the natural oils that protect the skin.  Calms redness and irritation.  PH-balanced to maintain the natural acidity of the skin.  Daily use will result in fewer flare ups and reduced skin reactivity.

FEATURES

No Parabens, Harsh Chemicals or Colorants. Safe for Sensitive Skin.

Key Active Ingredients:

1. HEAL AND SOOTHE: Allantoin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract
2. COMBAT FREE RADICALS: FAB Antioxidant Booster
3. MOISTURIZE/BARRIER PROTECTION: Glycerin

My thoughts: (Rating: 4.5 out of 5) I don’t really have any complaints about this facial cleanser.  I have been using this product for the last three weeks. Prior to that I have been using Clean & Clear’s Continuous Control Acne Cleanser (Read About It Here) to stop breakouts.  After using FAB’s cleanser, I noticed that I was getting the same results as I was getting with the Clean & Clear product, just without all of the burning & stinging.  I used this product twice a day – in the morning & evening; this product left my skin feeling fresh & clean without over drying it or leaving it feeling greasy.  This product is also an effective makeup remover as well.  I also love the consistency of the product; it’s like a mousse.  It’s also highly concentrated, so you only need a little.

I gave it a 4.5 out of 5 because of the price. I think it’s a little expensive, which may not bother some people.  I would like to try their acne/blemish control product.

Another product that was sent to me for review was their Ultra Repair Cream (6 oz for $27).

 

Description:

DELIVERS EXCEPTIONAL HYDRATION AND PROTECTION WITH NO GREASY PETROLEUM
FAB Ultra Repair Cream is a thick, rich, emollient product that hydrates deep down with exceptional penetration. With the help of colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, soothing eucalyptus oil and ceramides, FAB Ultra Repair Cream provides immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin.

BENEFITS

Hydrates, calms and smoothes skin. Improves natural barrier function. Relieves minor skin irritation and itching due to eczema and other conditions.

FEATURES
No Parabens, Harsh Chemicals or Colorants. Safe for Sensitive Skin.

KEY ACTIVE INGREDIENTS

1. SKIN PROTECTANT: Colloidal Oatmeal
2. HEAL/SOOTHE: Allantoin, Eucalyptus Oil
3. COMBAT FREE RADICALS: FAB Antioxidant Booster
4. MOISTURIZE/BARRIER PROTECTION: Ceramides, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Squalane, Shea Butter

My Thoughts: (Rating 4.5 out of 5) If you know me you’ll know I am obsessed with creams & moisturizers for the body especially if they make my skin feel super soft.  I love how this product made my skin feel.  Due to this harsh winter weather we had this year in New York, my skin took a beating.  Even though I exfoliate almost daily, my legs had a little scaly-ness to them.  I was using this all over my body after showering, and within a few days (no joke) my skin was just as soft & smooth as a baby’s bottom, my feet too!

I like that it’s creamy, and it soaks right into the skin instead of sitting on the top.   I even tried it as a facial cream a few times, and it worked perfectly even under my makeup.  It didn’t even feel heavy or greasy.  It has a very faint eucalyptus scent that fades almost immediately.

I only gave this product a 4.5 out of 5 because of the price. $28 seems a bit extreme for a jar of cream, but I guess it is worth it. I just can’t see myself spending that much on a cream though.

I do recommend both products to people with sensitive skin.

  1. This line is one of the best lines ever for sensitive skin. I'm currently using the Ultra Repair Cream and Anti-Redness serum which are working wondering on my skin. So glad you featured FAB!
