, a new antiaging cream from Your Best Face that targets the lip area, was actually made with help from Truth In Aging's VIP members. Yes, your wisdom and passion for great skincare is shaping the future of the cosmetics industry - one potion at a time. Actually, two. VIPers also had the chance to test and pitch in on Prep, YBF's new exfoliator. And now (drum roll, please) we are proud to introduce a bundle of some of YBF's finest at a brilliant discount exclusively for TIA readers.
In the Truth In Aging store,
you will now find the YBF goody bag with the all new Define
(full size), Quench
(full size), a better-than-ever Correct eye cream
Personally, I'm not sure how Correct could have been improved since it was already, in my book, the world's best eye cream and one of our Five Best
. I have been trying out the new version for the past week and can report that the texture is a little thicker and this is one heck of a de-puffer (I've been partying all week - in the interests of science, of course) thanks to a new addition to the formula called Eyeseryl (tetrapeptide-5). Also new is dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline (Sepilift DPHP), a peptide that tests have shown to be effective on crow's feet. Happily no babies have been thrown out with the bathwater and you will still find Syn-tacks and Syncoll (see Define below). The other thing about Correct is that panda eyes will be a thing of the past.
Define could do for lip lines what Correct does for crow's feet. I have found that it has really softened mine and, although it is not a lip plumper per se, it definitely gives me fuller, redder lips (not easy since naturally they are as thin as a snake's). There are two peptides that might give the mighty Matrixyl a run for its money. Syncoll is a small peptide with a unique sequence to mimic the human body’s own mechanism to produce collagen via TGF-β, tissue growth factor. It is in good company with Syn-tacks
, which stimulates a broad spectrum of things responsible for youthful skin – laminin V, collagen types IV, VII and XVII and integrin – all at once. And of course, no YBF product would be complete without a smattering of the radical scavenger, spin trap, and new favorite, lipochroman-6
Lips will become even more kissable with Quench
. Whenever I'm asked to recommend a lip salve that really works, I suggest Quench. It has nothing nasty that you wouldn't want near your mouth and plenty that you would. Your smackers will be grateful for argan oil as winter approaches. Meadowform seeds are 60% omega-9 fatty acids. In practice, it behaves like a safe silicone, adding gloss and helping with the retention of moisture. And no YBF product would be complete without spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), a molecule that makes a bee line for free radicals that are spinning out of control and stops them in their tracks before they can do cellular damage.
Along with Define, Prep is brand new. It is a creamy - creamier, I suspect, as a result of feedback from our testers - exfoliator. Actually, exfoliator is an understatement. This is the closest thing to an at-home microdermabrasion that I have ever found. This is due to the aluminum oxide crystals (not to be confused with unsafe aluminum, this is used in hip replacements). Alpha arbutin helps to fade pesky age spots and there is the usual cocktail of YBF's potent peptides including Matrixyl 3000.
