Thank you for the opportunity to review the Your Best Face Concentrate Antioxidants ($55 in the shop) and Your Best Face Refresh ($80 in the shop). I was so excited to try these new products as I have recently started taking my skincare regimen more seriously than ever before – one of the side effects of looking in the mirror and realizing I’ve aged. I have tried dozens of different products only to find that some of them irritate my skin or my eyes.
I really wanted to wait until I had completely used up the entire sample before giving a thorough opinion on it. After Michelle and Sandy got things started I was finally ready to share my very positive experience with these products.
The first thing I noticed when I received the samples were the smart bottles. The pumps allow for every last drop of the product to be dispensed.
The YBF Antioxidants was a wonderful addition to all of my skincare products. It played well with everything I tried it with, whether it was a night cream, a day cream, sunscreen or by itself in use with the Baby Quasar LED Light Therapy.
It has a wonderful almond scent that is not overwhelming but just slight enough to make it a pleasant scent. When applied, the product took about 2 pumps to generously spread across my entire face and it went on very easily. By itself it can feel drying – however, I saw that as a benefit as this is probably the reason this product plays so well with others and is easily added to or mixed with anything I tried it with.
After finishing the entire bottle I saw a small difference in my skin. It looked a little bit more youthful, refreshed, and even toned. I would not say that this was as drastic of a difference as I expected, but I hope the antioxidant protection was doing its job even if I couldn’t see it.
The YBF Refresh was a very exciting experiment for me. I had just finished using up MyChelle’s eye cream as well as IS Clinical EyeQ and did not receive the results I was looking for from either product.
Like the YBF Antioxidants Concentrate, this product also has a pleasant almond scent that is not overpowering at all. I started using Refresh and instantly felt a hydrating and tightening of my eye area. My eyes felt fresh and not irritated. I carried the product all the way around the ocular bone and found no irritation whatsoever – this was unusual for me and would make me use this product over and over again.
During the first week I noticed some very slight red spots emerging around the lower half of my eye. They looked like tiny little blood vessels that may have been aggravated by the caffeine in the product. At first I thought about discontinuing the trial, but I was so impressed with how this eye cream made my eyes feel, that I was not willing to give it up yet.
I can happily report that after a week of using the product the red spots disappeared and I was left with the most youthful effects an eye cream has ever had on my skin. Could it be true? I was so impressed with this product – I cannot sing it’s praises enough. My eyes have tightened, my dark circles have disappeared, I even feel that the bags under my eyes have become so small that they look almost entirely gone.
To my pleasant surprise, the product also played well with make up with the added benefit of providing moisture throughout the day and preventing the eyeshadow from cracking. I actually found myself looking in the mirror throughout the last few weeks surprised at how young my eyes looked immediately after applying the product.
YBF Refresh has literally made me a believer in eye creams again. It has restored my faith and will make me a happy tester of any YBF product. YBF – way to go – you have a winner here!
