I have been having a huge amount of fun recently – thanks to all of you and Your Best Face. About six weeks ago, we got together with Your Best Face to create do it yourself kits that will be available in our store and allow members of our community to unleash their inner mad scientist and make their own cosmetics. When we asked you to tell us what you’d like, many people said they would like something in the heavy guns department. Think serum. Think intense.

Darrell, the founder of Your Best Face and chief formulator, sent me some vials of something that he called Concentrate. It features Your Best Face’s favorite antiaging actives: spin trap, Lipochroman-6 and vitamin E. I got to unleash my own inner mad scientist by trying it out with other potions and lotions and as a base for treatments. I even raided the refrigerator for fresh accoutrements to make a mask. Here are some of the things I did with Concentrate:

  • I used it with my Baby Quasar LED lamp. It worked really well applied to face or hand followed by six minutes of LED. The results were particularly noticeable on my hands, they looked plumper and smoother. In a side-by-side test with Osmosis Replenish, the immediate results were similar. What amazed me is that the Concentrate hand actually looked even better several hours later.

  • I added it to moisturizers to give them an extra boost.

  • I mixed some Concentrate with body lotion for those stubborn parts – eg knees

  • I mashed up some fresh blueberries and threw in a squirt of Concentrate for a homemade face mask

  • I made Ildi’s parsley mask and gave it a the turbo treatment

Your Best Face has prepared a limited number of Concentrate especially for Truth In Aging readers and we’ll be getting them into the shop as soon as we can. We’ll also be throwing in a few treats as well. So watch this space!
