YBF Nourish, Refresh, and Concentrate Antioxidants
I tried both of the eye creams at same time, one under each eye. Yes, they are formulated for two different age groups, Nourish, for those twenty-something people that are smart enough to begin preventive maintenance and Refresh, for those of us who have slipped beyond that decade and most likely need a bit of rejuvenation and prevention. Nourish is a nice lightweight cream that readily absorbs and did a good job of moisturizing and hydrating the eye area. This is a good choice for now youthful skin that wants to remain so. It is also at a good price point, providing an economical way to give your eye area a daily dose of antioxidants.
Although I liked this eye cream, it was no surprise that the Refresh performed a bit better for me. Also a lightweight cream that didn’t need any coaxing to absorb, Refresh comes in with heavier artillery to reduce what problems we may already have in the eye area, and I did notice the difference in the two. This one provided the same hydration and moisturization, but also plumped more and left the under eye area more supple. Fine lines also were less noticeable on this side.
I have also previously used the YBF Correct ($150 in the TIA shop) and liked the results I achieved. In comparison, it is admittedly a step above the Refresh in its smoothing ability and improving elasticity. However, after a couple of weeks using the two new creams, I did as YBF’s website suggested and alternated the Refresh side with Correct eye cream and found it does stretch the benefits of the Correct. At the same time on the Nourish side, I began also applying the Concentrate Antioxidants ($55 in the TIA shop) and noticed it did bump up the results after a couple of weeks with the fine lines appearing a bit more diminished.
All three of these formulas worked well for the intended purpose and also provide more choices for age ranges and creative combinations to help address individual needs and price points. I am happy to see these added to the YBF family of products and I even see on the YBF website there is a new calming, aromatic mask called Relax that has been added to the lineup. My personal thanks to Darrell for welcoming TIA reader’s input (positive or negative) when formulating new products.
