I used to be a huge fan of First Aid Beauty’s products. The Ultra Repair Cream was a good moisturizer and seemed to calm down my sensitive skin, but I recently realized it was also contributing to my acne (due to its inclusion of Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, and Cetearyl Alcohol). I got First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Liquid Recovery because the ingredients list was safe, with no acne-triggers, and because my skin was feeling incredibly dry from the change in temperatures. But despite its promise to hydrate, repair stressed skin, and reduce redness, I found that it didn’t really do any of it. At least not enough that made me want to dish out $38 again for an incredibly tiny bottle. I guess I’ve become spoiled from Korean skincare, but I just expect my products to work.
