Reviewed and recommended: Your Best Face Control


Diminished forehead and lip lines


Best paired with a moisturizer to prevent dryness

Another YBF winner

My affinity for Your Best Face products has been strengthened by a very successful three week trial of YBF Control ($160 in the TIA shop). The biggest impact has been on forehead lines and what I had come to believe were stubbornly permanent lines above my lip.

Control has YBF's signature ingredient, spin trap. This is a clever little molecule that seeks out free radicals that are spinning out of control and sets them right before they can do damage. While spin trap is going after free radicals, matrixyl 3000 is promoting collagen growth, assisted by idebenone (CoQ10), another antioxidant with a good pedigree, and vitamins C and E.

YBF has even made me a convert to argireline. I've always thought it rather pointless (freezing muscle movement and not much else). However, combined with the spin trap and matrixyl, it seems (if my forehead is anything to go by) to be having the desired effect.

I was so amazed by the results I got from YBF's eye cream, Correct ($150 in the TIA shop), that I didn't think they could pull it off twice. And, given the appreciative reader review for Defend ($120 in the TIA shop), YBF seems to have pulled off a hat trick.

Ingredients in Your Best Face Control:

Reverse osmosis water, argireline (acetyl hexapeptide-3), cyclomethicone, ppg-5 ceteth-20, matrixyl 3000 (palmitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3), c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, dimethyl isosorbide, ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), jojoba, nylon 12, idebenone, triethanolamine, alpha lipoic acid, polysorbate 20, sodium hyaluronate, vitamin e, paraben du.

    I would LOVE to try this product & I have no problem paying more money for something if it works! But the only place I can find it online says NO RETURNS.
    Does anyone know where I can either get a sample of this or purchase it with the option of returning if I don't like it??

    I tried this and for the last 3 days my skin is so dry, I am not sure if this is causing it but skin looks a little red and rough as well .
    As anyone else had this happen?
