Prevents breakouts


The pump dispenses too much product

Reviewed by Beata

I have been trying Your Best Face Boost ($65 in the shop) for the past few weeks and I am not at all surprised to report that I LOVE IT. That was expected I guess, but then you never know. After all, I ended up not liking the Nutralift conditioner that I had huge expectations for.

Glad to say “not this time”.

YBF delivers excellent product that does exactly what it promises to do. It moisturizes my face, leaving it looking supple and matt throughout the day. I have combination skin with quite oily forehead, chin and nose and those areas are in check for most of the day after using Boost, no need for blotting sheets. It also treats my quite sensitive cheeks with tenderness, delivering moisture without irritation.

Boost claims to discourage break outs and it does it. I am very happy to report that since I started using it my chin and forehead are very happy and do not break out as much as they did before. I hope that they will stop all together after longer use of Boost.

If there is anything that I am not 100% happy about it will be a pump that seems to deliver too much product for my liking and just does not want to behave no matter how gently I try to press. It might be intentional but I prefer more control over how much product I am using.

But after all this is really small complaint about truly remarkable product. I am very happy that I discovered YBF in general and Boost in particular.

    COMMENT ON SOLVING YBF PUMP CONTAINER FRUSTRATIONS: I use and love MANY of Your Best Face products. Many of YBF's original AND re-formulated gels, creams, and other types of formulations that are in their signature "pump containers" HAVE, in my experience two annoying and intermittent dispersal issues.

    MY SOLUTION--which gives me greater than a 99% relief from the "too much product pumped out" AND the "I cannot get ANYTHING to disperse from the pump mechanism" issues: In my collection of all skin care containers, I keep/store ALL of my YBF"pump" containers UPSIDE DOWN. I'm still able to read the labels as easily as if they are right-side up AND I'm able to control how much product the pump delivers simply by the amount of pressure I exert on the pump. About 1-2 times/month, I have a quick "it won't pump" issue. I just keep the product upside down in storage position--denoted by the small hole in the bottom of YBF's pump containers. I just give the container a slight "thwack" (a word that seems to describe exactly what it sounds like despite its unavailability in Oxford's dictionary!). Almost without fail, that one "thwack" (a soft sort of punch w/ my palm), re-starts the pumping process! CONCLUSION FOR ME: I store all of my YBF 'goodies' packaged in their signature non-glass pump-containers---UPSIDE DOWN. NO MORE "NO-PUMP" and/or "TOO MUCH/TOO LITTLE" product problems!

    Quick question - between this and YBF Balance which one is better if I had to pick one?

    Does layering both makes sense or is that overkill? If yes which one goes below?

    Also am assuming a moisturiser is not required after this?

    New reader here and planning to put in an order soon.

    Am 36 Indian male, super oily acne prone skin with large pores and dark spots...thanks in advance for the guidance

    Can't say enough about this moisturizer. The scent of sweet almonds when you apply it. Its crazy slip, so it spreads easily. The way it keeps your face matte, fresh, clear, toned, and hydrated for the day. This stuff is effortless, and just perfect.
