I love Your Best Face Correct ($150 in the shop), but struggle with the price. The good points are:

  • The product feels smooth, not greasy, and has a pleasant smell.
  • My one-month sample lasted for two months!
  • And I definitely saw visible improvements in the crepy skin on my upper eye (which was the reason I sampled YBF Correct).

I sat down to write this review six weeks ago and asked myself, “Am I really going to spend $150 for this? Did it provide ENOUGH improvement to justify spending $80 more than Osmotics Eye Surgery Under Eye Rejuvenator ($68 in the shop)?” (I also like Eye Surgery, but recently started seeing less positive results - perhaps because I had used it consistently for five years.)

I haven’t used YBF Correct for six weeks now, and the crepiness is returning. What’s a girl to do?

I have decided that if I am going to invest $150, I might as well invest an additional $68 for Osmotics Eye Surgery and get a definitive comparison between the two products. Helping me make this pricey decision is a friend who has graciously offered to use the remainder of the losing eye cream. Thus, I have purchased BOTH products and will test them out for the next two months - one on the left eye, and one on the right. I’ll keep you posted.

P.S. Your Best Face Correct works extremely well for crepy skin on the upper eye area. If money is not an issue, I highly recommend it.

    Hello Susan,

    Just reading this article seeking eye treatment -- What was the result of your test comparing the two eye products, one on each eye to see which was better?

    Julie Kay - I thought the very same thing when I saw that Meryl Streep movie!

    I also apply Correct around the entire eye area, upper and lower and crows feet. Really makes such a difference for me.

    Good refresher on the application process.

    Hi Sue, We ship to sunny SA from the <a href="" rel="nofollow">Truth In Aging shop</a>

    I really enjoy this website for its informative insight based on facts and results but here in south africa we do not get the same variety of products. We get the common la prairie, la mer, sisley but none of the others that are mentioned. How do we here in sunny sa get good products such as those mentioned on your website? Or comments on what we currently have available.

    Regarding upper lid crepiness: Yes, to application to upper lid, as well to the entire brow bone area. Meryl Streep is in a movie: It's Complicated where she visits a cosmetic surgeon asking what can be done about her sagging lids. I leaned over to my best friend during this and whispered, "Correct has prevented anything resembling this from happening to me!"

    Always apply your eye creams beginning at inner corner (near nose) going around to outside of eye (toward temple; not forgetting brow bone) then downward to undereye area and back to nose; up and around again...

    Peace ~jk

    Hi Laura,

    My esthetician, Ildi Pekar, taught me to start at the outer eye and move to the inside corner, she then continues over the eyelid from inner to outer. I have always used eye cream on my lids as well as under eye.

    When you refer to upper eye crepiness, are you referring to your eye lid, or crow's feet area? I use Correct and find it helps for under eye crepiness but I've never put any creams on my eye lids. I could see how Correct might be appropriate though as it has a very light texture that absorbs nicely.
    Marta, I saw a video on how to apply eye creams and it was only applied from outside corner to inside corner under the eye. What do you recommend?

    I too have to go back to YBF Correct or crepiness returns. Susan, looking forward to hearing your verdict on Eye Surgery.

    For me, YBF Correct is a must have in eye care and maintenance. I am on record as "batting both eyes" at the cost of skin care products, but I do dish out for this one.

    IT.IS.THAT.GOOD! ~jk
