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?
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.
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.
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!
