Hey everyone!! Today’s post is on the hyped Korean Belief Moisture cream and First Aid’s Ultra Repair cream. I received them as samples from Sephora. Let’s review them~
First of all, I love the simple packaging of the Belief Moisture Cream.
– Retails $38
Here’s what the full size looks like (Image not mine, all credits to the owner).
It reminds me so much of the philosophy brand with the lettering and simplicity. Inside is a white cream that is not too thick so when you apply it on your skin, it feels like nothing is there. After applying it, my face felt hydrated and I liked how light it felt on my skin. There was also no strong scent to it. It did a good job on retain moisture so I can see why it is getting so popular. It is a Korean brand and I’m a sucker for all things Korean skincare and makeup.
On the other hand is the USA brand “First Aid” and their Ultra Repair Cream.

So let’s talk packaging. This looks like a medical balm and I guess they purposely did that since it’s called “First Aid” and all, but I don’t like it. The first time I saw it, I was immediately excited to try the Belief Bomb since I heard awesome reviews about it and when I saw this included, I was like “Mehhhh whatever”. The Belief Bomb wins by far in terms of packaging. But I guess first impressions don’t always count… I surprisingly really enjoyed this cream, even more than the Belief Moisture Bomb!! It is a little thicker in consistency than the other one and you can feel it on your face, but it did an awesome job with moisturizing. I have dry skin and when I used the Belief Bomb, it did a good job, but I felt that it wasn’t enough. My face did feel hydrated, but I still felt a little of patchiness. I tried this after finishing the Bomb and after a few days, my face was really smooth and the patchiness was gone. Looking at the label now, it says it can help with eczema (which I sadly have, but on my body and really mild) and that you didn’t have to apply it on the face. I didn’t try applying it anywhere else other than my face, but I’m sure I wouldn’t be disappointed with it on my other parts of my body. This cream has a sunscreen scent which I noticed immediately after application, but it didn’t really bother me considering the amazing results I saw.
So, which one won? Belief’s “The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb” or First Aid’s “Ultra Repair Cream”? In my opinion, I would say First Aid did. I totally underestimated it’s abilities and I fell in love with it! Not to mention, it is $8 less than Belief’s. I would highly recommend it to anyone with dry skin; this did wonders for mine!!
