You know how when we are young, we are encouraged to invest money so we will be in a better place financially when we are older?  Well, I regard YBF Boost ($65 in the TIA shop for 1oz) in the same way when applying this wisdom to skin care.

Boost is one product in a line of outstanding skin care.  Although I was asked to test it, it would generally be unsuitable for me to use on a regular basis, as I am middle-aged and need a product containing substantially more moisture and anti-aging ingredients.

However, at this time in my life, I’ve endured a stressful, albeit positive, move from Oregon to California.  For a month or so after moving, my skin reflected my inner stress, and I applied Boost in order to nourish it, as my heavy-duty creams seemed to exacerbate the problem.  Boost took care of my skin with its superior ingredients during this trying time.

Boost is an excellent product for those who are younger (30s-40s) and those with oily skin prone to breaking out. I wish this product had been around when I was younger. I’m convinced my skin would appear to be 40-years-old, rather than 50+!

Ingredients: Reverse osmosis water, green tea, cucumber extract, olivem (cetearyl olivate, sorbitan olivate), caffeine, Homeostatine (enteromorpha compressa extract, caesalpina gum), Renovage (triglyceride, teprenone), niacin, vitamin B5, vitamin e, spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), Lipochroman-6 (dimethylmethoxy chromanol), paraben du

    Thank you, Darrell!
    Actually YBF has become a big favorite with me, thanks to Marta and the TIA community. I love what Define does for my lips - another 'can't do without' product ...

    The YBF antioxidants are terrific too, along with Quench.. The free sample pack was a real treat for me - thanks, Darrell & Marta for that!

    Just want to add my 2 cents here: I've been using Boost for about a month and I sure love it!

    Like Junko, I find it goes nicely over reluma in the day for just the right touch of moisture. It is really a great all around product that I find I can't do without.

    Hearing from both of you, Junko and Darrell, has put the biggest smile on my face!

    Thanks for your kindnesses, and have a sunny, wonderful weekend.

    ...and probably should clarify I didn't mean to imply increasing the richness of Boost, but rather head toward providing a richer alternative.

    Cheers to both of you!
    I wondered too, prior to the comment, if this was you Susan. I hope your move went well!

    And also to Junko -- being back up in Minnesota I hear you on the need for something richer at times and for some skin types! ...Will see what we can do before winter gets here!

    Susan ~ Dearest Susan! Didn't register at first who the reviewer was until you lovely photo appeared! Sometimes I need to be hit over the head! Finding a moisturizer for my break-out prone skin is always challenging, and Boost is one of my favorites. I can see where it might not be enough for those who need a heavier moisturizer. Always have to put my 2 cents in when one of my favorite products are reviewed. Thrilled that you are reviewing (do MORE!!!)

    Thanks for clarifying a point I didn't make strong enough. YBF Boost is a good product for any one to use at any age who has oily skin.

    For those oilier middle-aged (like me) who use a serious serum such as ReLuma, please look at Boost's ingredients! It'll add some moisture (not too much) and give a BOOST to your serum! Feels great over ReLuma * doesn't make your face heavy, greasy or goopy!
