I received three Yu-Be products, Moisturizing Skin Cream, Lip Therapy, and Moisturizing Socks. Yu-Be is a Japanese company, and just to note, before accepting the products, Yu-Be responded to my email question to verify, “Yes, we are still cruelty free.”
The three products:

Yu-Be Heel & Elbow Moisturizing Socks
Do you have dry, cracked heels or elbows? I highly recommend this product!
One pair per box in one size.
Here’s how I used them for the “Yu-Be Nighttime Moisturizing Treatment.”
After washing and drying my heels, I applied Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream, and then covered them with the Socks.
The next morning my heels were as smooth as can be! No more dry, cracked heels! Two great products (the Moisturizing Skin Cream is reviewed below).
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream 1.25oz (33g) tube
In case you’re not sure, Yu-Be is pronounced, “YOO-BEE.” The ingredients are based on the original 50 year old formula that was invented by the Japanese pharmacist, Yoshikiyo Nowatari. It is the #1 selling medicated, vitamin-enriched cream in Japan.
This is a Glycerin-based cream that is enriched with Vitamin E and Vitamin B2. The skin cream contains no artificial colors, fragrances or petrolatum.
Glycerin, Water, Isopropyl Myristate, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Triethanolamine, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Glycyrrhetinic Acid, Camphor, Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Hydrogenated coco-glycerides, Stearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 80, EDTA, Methylparaben, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Sodium Hyaluronate.
While the label states that it can be used “anywhere on the body – even the face and lips,” I only tested it on my hands, legs, elbows and heels.
This is the cream that I put on my heels, and then used the moisturizing socks (reviewed above).
The company notes that the cream does not have SPF, therefore, it does not provide any sun protection.
Yu-Be is a true multi-tasker. Here are some of the ways Yu-Be has suggested you may use it:
*to smooth rough, dry patches on hands, elbows, knees, and feet.
*to soften and reduce tough calluses, including hard, cracked heels
*to help heal and prevent split cuticles
*to replenish lost moisture from water damage or frequent hand washing
*to help heal and minimize scarring from burns
*to protect and moisturize skin exposed to cold, wind, and water.
*to protect against diaper rash and frost bite
The only objection that some may have is that that there is a camphor scent. On the plus side to camphor: it is very effective at soothing skin irritations!
Yu-Be Lip Therapy
This is an all natural lip balm and contains no artificial flavors or colors.
Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Cera alba (Beeswax), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Camphor, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera), Eupatorium Rebaudianum Bertoni (Stevia) Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary Leaf Extract).
The lip balm is excellent for moisturizing, healing and soothing dry chapped lips.
Please note that this product does not have SPF, therefore, it does not provide any sun protection.
It really worked wonderfully, and the only objection I had is that since it is camphor enriched (which helps to soothe irritations), some may not like the scent–but it does go away.
