Summer is almost here. Time to get your feet in sandal shape! Exfoliation followed by moisturizer is the best way to get rid of dry skin and cracked heels. I recently fell in with Yu-Be, a Japanese and was pleasantly surprised. Yu-Be is a glycerin based moisturizer with Vitamin E, B2 and camphor. It does not contain any artificial colors or fragrances and has been a favorite in Japan since 1957.
I tried the Skin Cream, Moisturizing Body Lotion, Foaming Skin Polish and the Heel and Elbow Moisturizing socks. Both the lotion and cream absorb quickly and are not greasy. However, the Camphor makes it smell like Carmex. Yu-Be reminds me of a lighter version of the old cure all, Bag Balm. That heavy petrolatum based ointment cured anything from diaper rash to eczema. But it took forever to absorb and was not pleasant.
Yu-Be was designed for dry, itchy skin, and cracked heals. There were many happy reviewers on Sephora.com, some even marveling how it helped with their Eczema. I like everything about it, except for the smell. However, I am always looking for simple products without additives, so I can overlook it. You won’t smell like camphor all day – the smell dissipates quickly. The Elbow and Heel Moisturizing socks are great because they are not a full sock. The design keeps your toes free and it keeps your feet from getting overheated under the covers. The Foaming Skin Polish is super-moisturizing. The simple ingredients, rice bran, ginger root, ginseng tone the skin while green tea and camphor help lock in moisture.
