Review: First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Face Cream SPF 30

There are very few beauty products I won’t cheat on — First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Face Cream SPF ($38) is one, the soul mate for my sensitive skin.  It’s a light, thin consistency yet it hydrates and treats my irritated skin. I love that it multi-tasks (from Sephora):

What it is:
A multipurpose, antiaging moisturizer with SPF 30.

What it is formulated to do:
Supply your skin with all the ingredients it needs to stay young and vibrant. This formula uses five active facets that work together to keep your complexion healthy.
– Zinc Oxide sits atop the skin’s surface to reflect harmful ultraviolet rays.
– Bisabolol offers soothing properties.
– Alpha Arbutin evens out skintone.
– FAB Antioxidant Booster (comprised of licorice root, feverfew, and white tea) combats free-radical damage.
– Homeostatine® (a complex of two natural botanical ingredients) prevents and reduces wrinkles by protecting younger collagen fibers from unwinding and becoming brittle.

What else you need to know:
Appropriate for all skin types, including the most sensitive skin, this blend is allergy tested, fragrance free, and dermatologist recommended; it excludes harsh chemicals and colorants.

Research Results:
Independent Clinical Results:
– After 4 weeks, skin hydration improved by 79%
– 85% reported an improvement in the overall appearance of their skin
– 71% reported a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
– 89% reported an improvement in the radiance of their skin
– 71% noted an improvement in the evenness of their facial skin tone

The SPF is strong enough that it lasts all day. Mind you, if i know I’m going to be exposed to sunlight more than gazing out an office window or a short Starbucks run, i will pat on Supergoop 30.  You can never be too careful when it comes to SPF! All I know is that this face cream seems to be one of the only multi-tasking powerhouse beauty products that make the cut in all seasons and weather conditions.

    […] 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). […]
