A revitalizing toner mist that wakes up the skin, while providing anti-aging benefits


Is loaded with nourishing ingredients that leave skin feeling soft, refreshed and energized



Standing in a light, spring shower on my birthday was the first thought that came to mind when I spritzed with Your Best Face Uplift ($22 in the shop). If that sounds overly whimsical then let me just say that this Toner Mist has an incredible softness to it and a delightful whiff of marzipan from YBF’s signature ingredient, spin trap.

You can rely on YBF to come up with a simple toner mist that is lovely to use and has some of the best ingredients, so that even a morning spritz isn’t wasting any anti-aging opportunities. YBF calls Uplift Toner Mist a fatigue fighter. I would agree that, for both the complexion and mood, it provides the gentlest of wake-up calls.

Toner Mist is a useful addition to any anti-sagging regimen. It majors on Uplevity, which (as I mentioned the other day in my innovative peptides roundup) is a newish peptide, tetrapeptide-2. According to Lipotec, which is the company that makes Uplevity, it induces the expression of fibulin 5 and lysyl oxidase-like 1. The latter is a gene that catalyses the first step in the formation of crosslinks in collagens and elastin. Fibrulin 5 is an extracellular matrix protein. Tetrapeptide-2 regulates the gene expression of talin, zyxin and integrins, which contribute to the improvement of “dermal cohesion.” Or, in other words, it firms and lifts the eyelid skin.

Spin trap is a free radical scavenger and it works in a very different way from other antioxidants. Spin traps intercept free radicals before they are able to do any damage. And the intelligent part is that spin traps are the only antioxidants that differentiate between good oxygen molecules and damaging ones (ROS). They are derived from almonds (hence the marzipan/birthday cake scent).

Rather than merely adding the antioxidant green tea, the active compound epigallocatechin gallate has been isolated and is supposed to be more powerful on the antioxidant front than vitamins.

Even with a mist, YBF can’t help but push the boundaries. New to me is oligosaccharides from chicory. This gives the immediate gratification of tightening and the longer-term benefits of collagen synthesis. Also included are flavonoids from knotgrass. This is a scruffy plant that grows on wastelands and is known to help elastin by inhibiting something called cathepsin G.

Skin brighteners include licorice and kojic acid, while horse chestnut is said to be helpful for broken veins.

In short, I can highly recommend Uplift and it would be a mist (I know, awful pun) opportunity not to give it a try.

    I was fortunate to receive samples of YBF's Uplift Toner Mist, Restore, Correct (eye), and Private Reserve Slumber Blend Anti-oxidant part of a gift package about a month ago. These came at a time when I was looking for the perfect nighttime skin care regimen that would address my under eye puffiness & forehead expression lines and would provide hydration, repair with a minimal number of products.

    I eagerly opened the samples, using them one at a time so I might assess their effectiveness, each standing on their own. Admittedly, I did not start with the Uplift Toner Mist.

    Because I was trying to protect my pocketbook, I emailed the founder of Your Best Face, Darrell Owens. He not only answered me almost immediately, but kept up a discourse via email, answering EVERY question I asked. I had tried all four products by this time, but was unsure whether they would address my particular issues. He was forthright, honest, and did not pressure me to invest in every product.

    In the end, however, I did buy all four products during one of Marta's amazing sales. The Uplift Toner Mist is the first product I use at night on my cleansed face. It is light, airy, and extremely easy to pat into my face and neck. It provides the perfect base for the Vitamin C products I use before I hydrate with the YBF Restore and Private Reserve Slumber Blend Oil (just a FEW drops); the Correct (eye) is also an amazing nighttime eye treatment.

    I heartily recommend the YBF Uplift Toner Mist. It is a product that can be used both morning and night and may be used as a refreshing splash any time. It's lightness and freshness makes this a definite 'keeper'.
