My Torrid Love Affair with First Aid Beauty Reaches a New Level of Love

We all know I have sensitive drama queen skin (mainly because I won’t shut up about it) which means most anti-agers are strictly off limits. You can imagine my elation when I heard one of my favorite brands, First Aid Beauty (FAB), is launching a line of anti-aging products specifically for sensitive skin called FAB Dual Repair.  My elation hit a ridiculous level (like chanting OHMYGOD OHMYGOD over and over again until my husband demanded to hear the news) when I found out they wanted me to be a FAB Dual Repair Blogger Ambassador, representing their brand and their new product line.    Now, you should know I’ve had the chance to work with brands prior to this but I was never interested because I wasn’t passionate about the brands (which means this was my first OHMYGOD OHMYGOD since I was made a finalist in the Allure Beauty Blogger Awards).  What got me about this opportunity was that I knew I would have zero problem raving about the FAB products since I’ve been doing it since the inception of my blog…

My review of First Aid Beauty’s 5 in 1 Face Cream SPF 30 was my second blog post in the history of this blog and the very first product review. This means that among my piles and drawers (and let’s face it closets) full of beauty products, I was more passionate about this face cream than any other product.  That’s love I tell ya.  I declared it “the soul mate for my sensitive skin” and that it was one of the very few beauty products I would never cheat on (though I’m cheating on it now with the FAB Dual Repair, but that doesn’t really count since I stayed in the family. Note: this rule does not apply with husbands, only skincare).

Our love affair continued a couple chilly months later when I helped my readers weather the cold with a post on how to care for their faces during the harsh winter months… “I slather on First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Concentrate .  It’s a lovely whipped texture and can basically treat any distressed skin condition. This is the first thick cream I’ve ever worn during the day, but it doesn’t feel greasy and it creates a shield for my face.  And, at only $28 you won’t feel wasteful when you use it all over your body on super cold days.”

Throughout the year I wrote about First Aid Beauty products in several other posts ranging from my visit to the Sundance Festival to Skincare Regimen for the Non-Girly Girl, and of course Making Your Morning Skincare Routine into the Ritual it Deserves to Be.  And then in December I spoke about their Ultra Repair Smooth Operator Kit as the perfect holiday gift on News10 Sacramento (which by the way includes one of my favorite new skin soothers, the FAB Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask).

So obviously my love for this brand is no secret.   I just started using the FAB Dual Repair line last week and I’m already loving it (shocking) and I can’t wait to share all the details with you in the coming months!  And here’s something else I’m going to share with you — the opportunity to try it yourself!  You’ll just have to keep reading my blog to find out how you can win the FAB Dual Repair line for yourself!

    I’m so glad I ran across your blog! I have been wanting to try First Aid Beauty’s stuff, but I was worried I was just picking up for the cute packaging (I’m a sucker for cute makeup lol). I have sensitive skin though so I have learned it is best to research first. Thanks!!

    Also, congratulations on being a finalist in Allure’s Beauty Blogger Awards.

      Welcome Kalee!! I’m so excited you found my blog! I think you’re really going to love the FAB stuff. My skin is THE WORST when it comes to being reactive and overly-sensitive (and bitchy!) and the FAB products always take good care of me. Thanks again for reading!!
