Minimal improvements over three months

Did not deliver results as expected

Reviewed by Sara

I was so grateful to receive my free trial of Your Best Face Control ($160 in the shop)  and I have been using regularly for over 3 months now.  I was supposed to send in my review a while back but I wanted to make sure that I gave it plenty of time to work.

I regret to report that any improvement in my skin is minimal.  I have a few small aging spot/sun damage areas, one of which is slightly lighter.  The crepe-iness around my eyes is a bit better, but not so around my lips.  My crow’s feet seem a bit less pronounced, especially when I compare that same area to the eyes of women around my age (57).

Even though I don’t yet see better results, I plan to continue using this product until it’s used up, hoping that continued use will make a difference.

    Thank you Darrell for the timely and concise explanation of how YBF handles the problem of active ingredients staying fresh for the consumer.
    I am familiar with the push-up bottle and have had zero problems with it. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. I just knew that YBF would be on top of this.

    Thanks again.

    Most of our products are packaged in airless pump containers as opposed to traditional containers where there is a dip tube that draws product up and out from the base of the container.

    In airless pump containers the product is pushed up and out through a vacuum. The result is that even if the container is opened there is little space for any air to remain in the container once it is closed again.

    Here is a link to an image of an airless container and you can see the lifting component that is drawn up as the product is dispensed:

    Understandably, airless containers are not always the right solution for certain products. Many products on the market offer great container alternatives which are safe. For us at YBF, using airless containers helps us produce products that consistently remain fresh through the duration of their use and they help us reduce the use of preservatives.

    Thank you,
    Darrell Owens, Your Best Face Skincare

    Marta or anyone who has knowledge,

    I have a question and you have probably explored this but, how do our favorite brands, aka Your Best Face, handle their packaging? If the bottles are opened, does a lot of the "good stuff" the active ingrieents get lost? I know that the Cosmetics Cop Paul Begoun, is always calling companies who supply good ingredients but their packaging doesn't work well with the active ingredients.

    Thanks for answering!
