Yu-Be Review and Giveaway



HISTORY-----

It was 1957 when a young pharmacist named Yoshikiyo Nowatari first introduced his now famous moisturizing cream to Japan. His creation was invented at the request of a woman long-suffering from dry, cracked skin. She was tired of using petroleum-based skin care products that she found to be greasy, messy and ineffective. With the help of a chemist and a special manufacturing process, he created a glycerin-based moisturizer that would go on to be one of the longest-selling skin care products in Japan and the #1 selling medicated, vitamin-enriched cream on the market.

Mr.Nowatari chose to sell his product as a "medicated" skin care cream so families would know it was for their use on tough, dry skin -as opposed to other "beauty", "wrinkle" or "anti-aging" creams on the market. In the 50 years since it's birth, this moisturizer has attracted and kept a massive and loyal customer base in Japan. Generations of familes have used the concentrated formula on all types of dry skin - from split cuticles and cracked heels to diaper rash - even frostbite - and to this day refuse to use anything else.

MILESTONES-----

World-class mountain climber and explorer Sumiyo Tsuzuki uses Yu-Be to protect her skin on expeditions all over the world. Ms. Tsuzuki was the first Japanese woman to ever summit Mt. Everest from the more difficult "Northern Ridge" (the China/Tibet side). She also appears in the I-MAX documentary film "EVEREST". Wearing a 1.25 oz. tube taped to a shoelace around her neck, she used Yu-Be to moisturize and protect her skin from the harsh elements of cold, wind and water on the world's tallest peak. (29,000+ ft!)




Yu-Be gave me the opportunity to review a few of their products. My favorite is a toss up between the Moistuizing Skin Cream and the Foaming Skin Polish. Both were wonderful and really helped my excessively dry skin! I even used the Moistuizing Skin Cream under my nose when it was sore from being sick and using tissues. WOW! It healed right up and the Camphor helped me to breathe easier.
