First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & Fab Kit

I picked up the First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & Fab Kit ($54) during Sephora’s Holiday Sale Event and I must say I am glad I did.

The set contains an assortment of First Aid Beauty Skincare which I was quite happy about as I’ve been wanting to try the brand for a while so who doesn’t love a set that includes a variety at a value right?

First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & Fab Set

The First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & Fab Kit includes:

  • 6 oz Ultra Repair Cream
  • 2 oz Face Cleanser
  • 28 x Facial Radiance Pads
  • 1.7 oz Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream
  • 2.0 oz Vitamin Hydrating Mist

If you purchased these items individually it would be well over $100 so you’re getting a significant savings with the set and considering I purchased at 20% off during Sephora’s Sale I even saved more money! SCORE!

As you already know I have drier, duller skin thus I thought Ultra Repair Cream would be a good pick for me. It’s a multitasking cream that can be used for either face or body. It kinda reminds me on some levels of Mizon Ultra Repair Wonder Cream but the consistency is little greasier and oily at first application. At a glance it looks like a very heavy body cream but it has a light, thinner consistency out of the jar and is even thinner than Steam Cream. It is a water based moisturizing that contains glycerin and oatmeal. I’m kinda on the fence about it as it does absorbs fast but it looks and feels a little greasy on my face on the initial application but that isn’t the case on my body. However, once absorb it leaves skin nicely hydrated but I wouldn’t say it was as “intense” as the name implies. I realize it has a cult following but I didn’t feel it was all that special however, those with drier, itchy skin will appreciate the addition of oatmeal to sooth. I didn’t notice a fragrance so much but there is some very light scent in the back ground but it shouldn’t prove too much of an issue for sensitive users.

My favorite part of this set was the Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream although I have to say it kinda sorta reminded me of the Repair Cream but just with a slightly thicker consistency. It breaks down quickly as you apply and absorbs very easily into skin. I noticed instantly it treated some of my flakier areas around my cheeks and made the skin smoother and softer when I woke in the AM. But again “ultra” is a word I wouldn’t really use as it implies that this is somehow intensely hydrating. It provides nice moisture but I wouldn’t say it was ultra repairing or ultra intense moisture-wise.

First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & Fab Kit6

I’ve already reviewed FAB’s Face Cleanser but just to recap this is a creamy foaming cleanser that lathers nicely. It removes makeup well enough but as I mentioned in my prior review it kinda sorta stings a bit around the eye area which made it a bit of a deal breaker for me.

First Aid Beauty FAB Cleanse & Exfoliate Kit1

The Radiance Pads are also a product I’ve reviewed in the past. These contain a blend of lactic and glycolic acids to gently exfoliate skin with daily use. You can swipe them on and the act to resurface skin over night. I didn’t experience major change using them as they do contain a rather mild cocktail of exfoliating ingredients so for me they aren’t quite concentrated enough for noticeable or visible changes.

Vitamin Hydrating Mist I’ve also covered in a past review. This is apparently a fragrance-free formula but it does have a heavier citrus fragrance due to citrus extracts in the formula. It feels quite refreshing and hydrating on my skin but could prove irritating to sensitive skin types as although it is water based the citrus might not be a go for those with sensitive skin! It’s a nice enough face mist but I’ve own and have tried better.

I think my review of the First Aid Beauty Peace, Joy & Fab Kit is a little discouraging. I can see myself using all of the products in the set although I can’t really see myself repurchasing them in the future which is why I actually loved the set as it saved me money!

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love FAB. I pick up every gift set I can get my hands on. I ended up with 2 8oz tubs of the ultra repair cream after the holidays last year and tossed one on my honeys side of the bathroom sink and he loves it. I’m glad to see more people trying the brand. I love their lip repair. It’s holy grail for me 🙂

    Muse, I didn’t like the Ultra Repair Intense Cream either. I thought it was too thick and heavy for the face, didn’t absorb well, and it had a slight menthol scent (from eucalyptus), which irritated my face. I ended up using it on my body and hands. I thought the Cleanser was ok for a light cleansing, but not strong enough to really remove makeup and grime. I do like the Sleeping Mask. I slather my face with serums and creams at night, then put the Sleeping Mask on top to seal the moisture in. When my skin is extra dry, I do love their 5-in-1 Face Age Delay Cream with SPF 30. It’s the most moisturizing sunscreen I’ve tried, it doesn’t absorb all the way, but it plays nice with my foundation, and when it’s cold and windy out there, it provides a protective balm on my face, and the moisture lasts for a good 8 hours, then I just re-apply to extra dry spots, like my under eye. I’ve gone through several bottles. I’m +40, so my face needs it!

      It’s ok for night use Katherine. It felt pretty greasy but it absorbs fast enough. I didn’t get too much of a smell thankfully! I was meh on the cleanser too, it’s ok, not great. I have to try the sleep mask! Thanks for the recs 😀

    I tried a sample set of the Ultra Repair Cream and couldn’t order a full size fast enough. I never had dry skin until I reached this magical time in my 50s. I’ve tried slathering EVERYTHING on my face, but my dry skin just sucked it in and laughed at me. The only thing that moisturized was Vaseline, which my dermatologist recommended, and which I feel is repulsive.
    I’m sorry you weren’t crazy about it, but be happy you have youthful, not-so-parched skin! 🙂
