Yu-Be Moisturising Skin Cream. Available in Boots nationwide.

We've seen the beauty box, food fads have been and gone, and we're in the grips of another pastel thirsty spring. Imagine my face when this little beauty Bento box landed on my doorstep last week - oh hello! The concept of a Bento box originated in Japan - a single-portion home-packed meal, it traditionally holds meat or fish, rice and pickled or cooked vegetables in a 'box' container. More recently and globally popularised is the kyara-ben - the 'character' Bento - where food is arranged in a cute character, animal or anime character.

Yu-Be is a skincare company, focusing on combating against dry skin. Housed in an adorable beauty Bento box, the Moisturising Skin Cream is a hallmark of the Yu-Be aesthetic. The cream is glycerin-based and is light, medicated and vitamin-enriched, one of the longest selling skincare products in Japan. I've sampled this for a week now and am currently avoiding it on the face, finding it a little heavy on my 'normal' skin type. It has quite a minty scent, but I am enjoying using it on my hands to repair bouts of winter chap and also on my elbows to prepare for the incoming spring.

As for the other products in the Yu-Be collection, I'm really interested in trying the Foaming Skin Polish and Lip Therapy. Can't resist some more skincare to add to the trove.
