Review on First Aid Beauty FAB Faves to Go Kit!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you have been doing well. =)

Today I am reviewing the First Aid Beauty FAB Faves to Go Kit

This set can be bought on Amazon for $28 and prime shipping!

What do I think of this product?
So this year, especially starting with the summer until now, I have been much more stressed than normal with studying for my mCAT exam, and now busy with hospital shifts, school, work, and applications. Therefore, my skin showed it. =P
I started to get redness on my face and also it became more sensitive and easily irritated. This is probably due to stress, lack of sleep, and also poorer eating habits (which are improving).
So I bought this kit! As you know I did buy the "First Aid Beauty" Ultra Repair Oatmeal mask and I loved it. It worked very well in calming my redness down and hydrating my skin. 
However, I did want a skincare product that treated me on a more daily basis, than just doing the occasional mask. I could wear the mask everyday, but most people don't and if I did, I would probably finish that bottle in a week. XP

This kit comes with 3 products:
-Face Cleanser: 56.7g or 2.0 oz
-Facial Radiance Pads: 28 pads
-Ultra Repair Cream: 56.7g or 2.0 oz

I have used these products for almost 1 month. None of these products irritate or redden my skin in any way.

Facial Cleanser
This cleanser is recommended to be used in the morning when you wake up and before you go to bed. It is said to moisturize and protect the skin.
This is a creamy cleanser with a soft texture. It will lather up into a foam when washing your face. One thing that did bother me was that it smelled like old paint...=/, but at least my skin doesn't smell like that after I wash my face.
I found this cleanser to be a nice cleanser for everyday use. It cleans my face well and keeps it hydrated. However, I don't find this cleanser to be that special or have a significant improvement for my skin. I think it works just as well as my Shiseido Perfect Whip and Shiseido Perfect Milk cleansers, which are much cheaper.
Therefore, while this is a good cleanser, I can find others that work the same and are much more affordable, so I will not be repurchasing this product again.

Facial Radiance Pads
These pads are said to exfoliate, tone and brighten skin. You are supposed to use it after you use the facial cleanser but I don't. I actually use it as a replacement for my cleanser on days that I come home late and I am very tired but I still want to clean my face, I will use these. Probably not the best way to use them, but it didn't hurt my skin, so I think it is okay. They clean my skin very well, I can see the pad change color very clearly from white to gray or brown....which may be gross, but hey! it works!
These pads are very thin and soaked with a lot of cleansing solution. They gently exfoliate and clean my skin. Also, they still keep my face moisturized, they don't dry out  my skin.
I love to use these because they are very portable, container is leak proof, and good to use when I am very tired or in a hurry. I personally don't think they brighten my skin much, but they do clean and exfoliate my skin well. I will definitely consider repurchasing this again, I think it is great when I am busy or when I am traveling!

Ultra Repair Cream
This is my most favorite product of the set. It is said to provide immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin and eczema. FAB Antioxidant Booster is there to defend skin from free radical damage. Ultra Repair Cream can be used all over the body and on the face.
The directions say to apply as needed. This bothered me a bit, because usually medical creams have directions like that, which means that the product is a strong and intensive product. Also, the cream smells medicated which doesn't bother me too much, just makes me concerned on how intensive this product is. Because the general rule for medicated products is that the less you use them the better.
I initially used this all over my face after cleansing everyday, because I had overall redness. The redness decreased rapidly because of this cream and as it says it is very fast acting and moisturizing. I also applied this to a bug bite on my face and saw a clear decrease in redness and swelling.
Once my overall redness decreased, I applied it only the redness around my mouth and my nose. And I am seeing great results with a lot of redness gone and some days with no redness!
This product is moisturizing but not as moisturizing as I would like it to be. Usually I apply it a second time if this is the only moisturizer on my face. But now I apply my Aveeno Baby all over my face and then the Ultra Repair Cream on areas of my face that are irritated and/or red.
This product works very well for me, decreasing irritation and redness quickly and significantly. I would definitely repurchase this product again!

Do I recommend these products?
For the Facial Cleanser, I really think that it is not necessary for you to buy it at that price so for the price I do not recommend it. However, if you really want to try this product or if you have very sensitive skin, then I think it's okay to try.
If you are looking for an on-the-go facial cleansing product, then the Facial Radiance Pads are your friend! I recommend this product because it is great for days when you are super busy, tired, or when you are traveling! I don't recommend for your daily use, but use it when you need it!
If you have sensitive skin, irritated skin, dry skin, red/inflamed skin I definitely recommend the Ultra Repair Cream! It works very well and worth the price! Just make sure to not apply it to any broken skin or open wounds, because they will sting.

So I hope you liked this review and found it helpful! Feel free to ask any questions or write comments in the comment box below. Thank you for reading and I will see you later! =)
