A Dry Skin Must-Have: YuskinA Cream. Review and price.
Here's a review on Yuskina Moisturizing Daily Cream
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available in all Browhaus boutiques
I'm a lover of multi- purpose creams and preparations that's why when I go abroad for a vacation, I always look for local favorites. So far, Lucas Papaw and Rosebud Salve are my go- to multipurpose creams, but when I was sent this vintage- looking product called YuskinA cream, Lucas and Rosebud immediately had a contender. YuskinA is a classic all- around cream from Japan and it's my favorite lately for addressing dryness, most especially on my lips!
WHAT IS IT:
YuskinA Moisturizing Daily Cream or better known as YuskinA Family Medical Cream in Japan is an all- around cream for soothing dry skin, cracked lips, windburn, rough knees, and dry cuticles.
The proprietary formula contains Sodium Hyaluronate, Vitamin E, Vitamin B2, Glycerin, and Glycyrrethinic Acid, which I think is the magic ingredient here. I have read that Glycyrrhetinic Acid is a derivative obtained from Licorice, which is known for soothing sun burns, sensitive skin, itch, dryness, and is even observed to help minimize subcutaneous fat if applied topically.
Locally, YuskinA comes in this size only; there's a tub version in Japan.
HOW IS IT? IS IT EFFECTIVE?
The product is a rich cream that doesn't feel heavy nor greasy. The tint of the cream is naturally- occurring due to Vitamin B2.
What I love most about it is how it 'heals' my lips. It has a medicated scent due to Camphor; not the most pleasing if applied on the lips (which I do all the time), but damn, it's a healer that it keeps my dry lips from flaking for days even without any lip balm on that's why I'm putting up with the scent!
This cream is also perfect for soothing dry skin, especially the elbows and knees, plus keeps skin area that's been bitten by insects from turning dry; it even alleviates itchiness!
I still have a special place in my heart for Lucas Papaw and Rosebud Salve, but man, Yuskina is a force to reckon with. It's a must- have for anyone with severely dry lips and skin!
