Best of 2018: All-round serum

Best of 2018 TIA Awards
December 12, 2018 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments

Every December we honor some of the amazing anti-aging products that have delivered unparalleled results throughout the year. The Truth In Aging Best Of Awards is now a hotly anticipated event by both our community members and our carefully-curated brands. The treatments, serums and creams we award not only meet our strict standards — innovative, ethical, good for the skin — but are also proven effective by tough critics (aka real women and men like you). So whether you are looking for a line smoother, glow booster, anti-aging eye cream or all of the above, stay tuned over the coming days as we reveal the standout

Today we're awarding the best all-round, do it all serum. And the winner is...

New Your Best Face Control ($160 in the shop).  Your Best Face Control has been an iconic serum since Truth In Aging opened its community curated store. Over the years, founder and chief formulator, Darrell Owens, has tweaked the ingredients, but the latest iteration takes Control into a different league. This is truly a hero product.

 With the new 1.7oz bottle without a price hike, I feel I can be generous with my applications: the face, neck and decolette, morning, night or both. The impressive collection of skin nurturing peptides and brightening antioxidants include Relistase, Matrixyl Synthe’6, Matrixy 3000, Syn-Tacks and, of course, YBF’s signature spin trap. We are talking firming, anti-wrinkle and prevention.

There are a couple of other special actives that are worth a shout out. Homeostatine is a moisturizing and regenerating agent made from a complex of two botanicals (from a seaweed and an Andean tree). It has a double molecular structure meaning that it can penetrate the epidermis and work on the skin’s outer layer. I was interested to discover that it also boosts the anti-aging effect of red LED light

Pterostilbene is a derivative of resveratrol that is said to be more potent, not least because it is better absorbed.  It is the primary antioxidant in blueberries (source).

I love the new silky texture, smart Miron packaging and Control has become staple of my regimen.
