Review by Marta

Your Best Face is one of my favorite skincare brands because of founder, Darrell Owens, commitment to continuous and intelligent formulation. The latest addition to the YBF line is Rescue Face serum is a testament to the approach and is, in my opinion, the brand’s new hero product. Heck, I’ll just say it: Rescue is my new hero product.

Rescue Face Serum is an intense formula that delivers a concentrated dose of YBF’s signature spin trap, an advanced antioxidant, and a palette of well-chosen and focused anti-aging ingredients. It was designed to be the ultimate 12-day treatment – think countdown to a big event, or rescue from a bad one. This little guy punches way above its weight.

Speaking for myself, I really did use this serum in rescue mode. I was recovering from a very bad reaction to medication (one of the symptoms was a severe all-body rash about which I will spare you the gory details) and once stable I needed to get my skin looking supple and healthy. Even my husband (not unkindly) noted that in a few weeks I added on a few years. Darrell sent me a bottle of his new Rescue and I thought, well why not.

The serum is water-based, but has the consistency of a very light oil. One syringe-full easily does the entire face and neck. I immediately recognized the almond scent that reminds me of marzipan and birthday cake and is actually the spin trap. I relaxed and felt that my poor, old face was in good hands. Was it ever, within 12 days, I looked much like my old self and then I wondered if there was an actually an improvement on the pre-sick Marta.

My bottle of Rescue is lasting well beyond a 12-day treatment, which is just as well because I am not giving this up. I am continuing to use it mornings on my entire face and neck, but may at some point move on, as YBF suggests, to one of the alternate modes of using just a few drops with a regular serum. Anyway, I currently follow with a creamy serum such as Your Best Face Control or MitoQ. Like almost all YBF products, Rescue plays nice with others.

A few words on the ingredients, which are a focused list of the essentials. I have already mentioned spin trap, an intelligent molecule that stabilizes free radicals that are spinning out of control. Intelligent, how? Well, spin traps are the only antioxidants that differentiate between good oxygen molecules and damaging ones (ROS). And, by modulating proinflammatory cytokines, they are anti-inflammatory and age-reversing. Rescue also has a relatively new form of vitamin C, aminopropyl ascorbyl phosphate, which is highly stable and effective and is responsible for this serum’s skin brightening effects. Other important antioxidants are ECGC, isolated from green tea, resveratrol, vitamin E and ferulic acid. There’s nothing nasty and the preservative is the benign Leucidal.

Highly recommended for anyone looking to fast track or augment their regimen.

    I would give this 10 stars if I could! I used it in rescue mode for two weeks and there is still some in bottle. Starting the second week I applied Truth Vitality gel over it and used the Ultra sound and LED. OMG! My sagging jowls are improving with each use. Fine lines and wrinkles are improving, my skin just looks younger. I had no adverse reaction to it and I even use it around my eyes. I use it on face, neck, chest and the backs of my hands .

    I know that Marta said that she is continuing to use it in rescue mode and I plan to also. What I hope you can answer is, is there a point of diminishing returns, or will it continue to improve my skin? I have already purchased my second bottle.

    I used it in the fast track it approach for the first two days. Since I have sensitive/combo skin, I realized it was not the best for me as I experienced a few white heads. Nothing major. However, this approach gave me that real intense brightening that I really loved. Alas, I could not continue the fast track as my skin did react a bit. I decided to take it easy for long term use. This was perfect and I noticed the following benefits: overall radiance/more even skin tone, smaller pores, slight decrease in post acne scars. This is a serum that I will definitely purchase over and over

    I as so happy to be chosen to review YBF Rescue by the Dare To Try It program by Truth In Aging. For my 68 year old skin that had been abused by the sun as a teenager, rescue is what I needed. I have tried various products to lighten my sunspots and although I have been wearing SPF50 sunscreen every day for the last several years, those pesky little spots remain. After the 12 days I noticed no significant improvement in lightening spots. The ingredient includes antioxidants, spin trap and anti-aging antioxidants so even though the 12-day treatment didn't work as well as I expected, this serum is one that if used regularly would brighten up my face, and diminish my sun spots and fine lines.

    I received this as part of Truth In Aging's Dare To To Try It. It felt wonderful on my skin! It instantly made my skin feel smooth and silky, not greasy and it absorbed quickly. After only using it a few days, I felt that my skin looked brighter, it felt softer and more supple to the touch. It has been such a pleasure using the Rescue Face Serum, and it fit into my morning skin regimen easily. I am thoroughly impressed with how this product works, and I truly feel that my skin looks younger since using it. I highly recommend this product for individuals with dull, tired looking skin who want to brighten it up, improve the elasticity and diminish fine lines. Your Best Face Rescue Face Serum definitely deserves an A+ for its quality and effectiveness!

    Is this safe to use after microneedling?

  • dimethyl isosorbide
  • reverse osmosis water
  • vitamin C (aminopropyl ascorbyl phosphate/AAP)
  • Leucidal® (lactobacillus ferment)
  • spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone)
  • epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)
  • trans resveratrol
  • tocophersolan (d-alpha tocopherol polyethylene glycol succinate)
  • ferulic acid
Twelve day treatment series AM directions: Wash and completely dry skin. Wait one minute. With your palms, massage a dropper-full of serum into the face and neck, avoiding the eye area Precautions: Apply only to fully dry skin. Avoid the eye area. Never use immediately after any form of exfoliation, or in conjunction with retinols. For sensitive skin, use less serum per application. Patch test before use. Do not apply to irritated skin.

Fast Track It (primary method of use) The ultimate, potent 12-day treatment. How To: Use a full dropper per application and feel the actives going to work! Tread lightly with your first use and pay special attention to instructions guiding you to apply only on dry skin. Doing so ensures the comfortable and effective treatment we have in mind for you.

Spa Time (alternative use) Supercharge your next face mask experience. How To: Apply a few drops or up to a full dropper dose of the serum to dry skin. Wait a few moments and then layer on a great face mask. Tip: Pair with one of our wet masks (as opposed to a traditional clay mask) for the ideal experience and infusion treatment.

Take It Easy (for sensitive skin or extended use) Sensitive skin or budget minded? Follow this plan! How To: Instead of a full dropper application, layer a few drops of the serum with your regular, daily skin care products. Doing this provides a gentler experience and extends use of your serum up to six weeks. Alternatively, target areas as a single drop treatment
