Yu-Be Moisturizing Body Lotion


RATING (out of 5 stars): 2.5 stars

COST: $29 for 10.25 ounces

THE SKINNY: Yu-Be Moisturizing Body Lotion claims to be the same as the top-selling body lotion in Japan. My guess is that the scent must be different.

The bright yellow lotion smelled like Vicks Vapor Rub going on. And the smell lasted because I kept catching whiffs of it throughout the day. My boyfriend even asked me if I had a cold at one point because he caught wind of the medicinal aroma. (Embarrassing!)

The lotion is made with glycerin and camphor (which explains the smell).

On the plus side, Yu-Be is very hydrating.

I just can't get over the odd yellow color. And the smell. It was just too much.

But Yu-Be also claims to cool a sunburn. I might have to give it another chance this summer and see how that works.

KEEP OR TOSS: Toss. Who wants to smell like they are sick, no matter how good skin looks afterward?
