Since JMA revealed a little solution to some of your skin problems we have another little secret up our sleeves. The First Aid Beauty range, available exclusively at Boots, will be adding two new products to the shelves in September this year, the FAB Smooth Shave Cream (main image) and the FAB Ultra Repair Lip Therapy (below left).
To help you decide whether or not you should be eagerly awaiting their launch, we have already tried and tested them so you know what to expect.
‘Say hello to fuss free shaving and sublimely smooth skin’ says the FAB team, by using the gentle non irritating shave cream. Designed to give you a close, long lasting shave while being crammed with ingredients like Glycerin and Tea Tree Oil to soften, smooth, heal and moisturise. Like all FAB’s products, the cream is suitable for all skin types whilst claiming to minimising nicks and razor irritation. Having very sensitive skin myself, I am wary of products that I use but I have to say I was very happy with the final result and didn’t have the slightest bit of irritation which I tend to get from a lot of shaving products.
Application was as simple as applying a thin layer to moist, cleansed skin, shave away and then rinse. I found that a little bit goes a long long way and I really didn’t have to use much of the product. I had a very smooth shave and didn’t feel like the razor was attacking my skin at all. Afterwards I noticed a big improvement in the condition of my skin in comparison to previous shaves. The real test came a few days later when I went to get ready at a friends house and forgot the cream. I managed to give myself nick after nick after nick and my skin didn’t feel half as good the next day.
Perfectly sized to pop in your handbag and hot off the streets of the US, the intensely hydrating and nourishing Ultra Repair Lip Therapy formula should improve the appearance of your lips and sort out any dryness. Presented in a little squeeze tube the formula is definitely one to help you get the perfect pout. Containing Shea Butter, Glycerin and FAB’s unique antioxidant booster your lips will also be protected from the damaging effects of the environment. The formula was really nourishing and I noticed an improvement within a few days of using this lip therapy. Having a love for lipstick this product was perfect for getting my lips in a great condition for under my lippy – no dry, chapped lips here.
These two products are great additions to the FAB range and live up to my high expectations. Like all the products in the range they are reasonably priced with the Ultra Repair Lip Therapy at £9, and the Smooth Shave Cream priced at £12 or a travel sized version for £5.50. There’s already a growing waiting list (at Boots) so make sure that you are on it!
