I was excited to try all the samples in my YBF stocking stuffer: I'm a dedicated Your Best Face Correct user, and was replenishing for the New Year but hadn't yet sprung for any other YBF products. I'm not a person who wants to do a lot of experimentation with a variety of products; just give me three things that work and I'll stick to them forever. But when I smoothed the single drop of YBF Private Reserve ($75 for 1.7oz) on my skin, it was like the Skin Goddess had reached down and brushed my face with magic dew!
The oil is, on first touch, well, oily, spreading easily over the entire face. The smell is divine, sandalwood, and immediately relaxing. My 59 year old skin drank it up. I went to bed feeling like I had done something nice for myself, and when I woke up I wanted to do it again! For the next several days I used the oil morning and night, and found that it gave my skin such a smoothed and firmed look that soon I was snooping online to try and find when and where I could snag some more of this youth elixir. I think it is a hit product; I love putting oil on my skin anyway at my age, and this product is both simple, economical and lovely: no shine, but a light DEWINESS that looks fresh and healthy. And who doesn't need that?
I also totally love the sample of Prep, the YBF exfoliation product that left me glow-y after washing. So there's my 3 for 2011: Correct, Prep and Private Reserve and I am looking super fine and out the door in no time!
