Sunday Skincare #1

First Aid Beauty (or FAB) is a relatively new brand to me. I first heard their name mentioned in January of this year and initially, I thought nothing about it.
But as time has gone on, I have heard more and more people talking about their products and how amazing they are. 
The god that is Caroline Hirons was the person that eventually persuaded me to make a cheeky FeelUnique order. And here are the products I've been testing!

Face Cleanser
This is a thick creamy cleanser that gently removes oil, makeup and dirt. When it comes into contact with water it thins and turns into a lotion like consistency.
I like to use this in the morning as it helps calm my skin and the last thing I want is for me to look as red as a tomato before applying my makeup haha. Now as much as I love this, I don't think I will repurchase it as I know there are other products of higher quality for a smaller price tag. That doesn't mean that it isn't good though!

Ultra Repair Cream
Think Elizabeth Arden's 8 Hour Cream. This is one of those products that use for absolutely anything! Sunburn, eczema, lip balm,  moisturiser.. anything!

It is very soothing upon application – the active ingredient in this cream is oatmeal, and you can’t go wrong with oatmeal. It absorbed extremely quickly into my skin! I was so surprised as I thought it would take ages due to the thickness of it, but it didn't! It was gone almost immediately. 

This would even be great used as a moisturiser in winter!

Facial Radiance Pads
Caroline Hirons you are an actual god! I put my faith in you and you did not disappoint as per usual! 
Caroline is a big fan of acid toning in the place of a traditional toner in a skincare routine. Acid toners work by balancing the pH of your skin (altered during cleansing), exfoliating and hydrating the skins surface. They also work by allowing other products (such as serums, creams, treatments etc.) to absorb into the skin properly. 

I noticed an immediate difference after about 2 days. Old acne scars (I have a real problem with them) seemed to have faded and my skin just looked clearer! This was due to the acids promoting new skin cell renewal.  

The only problem with the products is that they aren't as widely available in the UK. 
But here are a few links where everyone can get their hands on them.. 

What products have you tried from the brand? Thoughts and recommendations please! :)

Thanks for reading!

Love Charlotte x



  1. Thanks for the review - I know from experience that it's so tough to find something that works on acne scars so it's always so great to read about products that work! x

    1. I still have loads, but they have improved so much! Got any tips? X

  2. A great review!! I have never heard of these before but I might have to do some online searching!!;)

    1. They are fairly new to me too! I have fallen in love with the ultra repair cream! I use it everyday now! I use it as a night cream! X

  3. Thank you for the review, Charlotte! We both are steady looking for an all around cream and the Ultra Repair Cream sound really wonderful :)
