Your Best Face Quench (lip balm)

Your Best Face Quench (lip balm)

Size: 0.15 oz (4.7 g)

Your Best Face Quench is an antioxidant lip balm that soothes dry and chapped lips while delivering anti-aging ingredients. Your Best Face developed Quench with the Truth In Aging community, sending prototypes testers and tweaking the formula based on their feedback. And now, YBF has increased Quench's antioxidant protection, further adding to the cumulative benefits you’ll receive from this silky lip treatment. You can purchase this popular product knowing it will work for you because it has been thoroughly tested and approved by our Truth In Aging community.

When you apply this lip treatment you’ll be keeping your lips naturally full, bright and youthful-looking with a collagen boosting, skin brightening and non-irritating form of vitamin C. Peppermint and clementine oils wake up your lips and add an invigorating tingle. Pharmaceutical-grade beeswax seals in moisture while Vitamin E, meadowfoam and blueberry seed oils hydrate and prevent against future damage from stress and environmental factors.

Please note Your Best Face products are final sale and not eligible for return.

TIA Review by Marta:
I usually have about three sticks of Quench lip balm around so that there is always one to grab from purse or pocket. It is comfortable, soothing, long lasting and has some great anti-aging ingredients.

Quench has spin trap. This shouldn't be a surprise since this busy little molecule that seeks out free radicals before they spin out of control is Your Best Face's signature ingredient (to be found, for example in my favorite eye cream, YBF's Correct). An exciting newcomer to the YBF oevre is lipochroman-6. This takes radical scavenging to a whole new level by going after reactive nitrogen species (RNS), which can cause cellular damage and oxidative damage to proteins. Scientists are coming to believe that oxidative damage to proteins may be the most important factor in aging.

Meadowfoam oil is very stable due to its fatty acid composition (each seed is 60% omega-9 fatty acids). In practice, it behaves like a safe silicone, adding gloss and helping with the retention of moisture. Meanwhile, blueberry is a source of vitamin E, carotenoids and antioxidants.

Quench is free of nasty preservatives and is safe enough to eat.

Our Take

Regular readers know that Your Best Face is a favorite skin care line of mine and Correct, the eye cream, is my "I simply can't live without it" cosmetic. Now YBF has come up with a lip treatment called Quench ($15 in the shop) that lives up to the high standards of the rest of the range. I've been... read more

    The best Chapstick I've ever found, I'm 43 & I have to moisturize my lips constantly. Quench keeps working hours after application. I use it after define , morning & night . And whenever needed in between. There is no other that has compared to the quality of this product . My lips feel smooth , repaired, protected , & plumped. I can't go without, even tho it's pricy it's worth it.

    So many lip balms I've tried in the past have not helped to prevent my lips from drying out, or the burning that can sometimes accompany this. The only ones that have worked are made out of petrolatum products and after educating myself about the bad ingredients that are currently in generic beauty products I decided I didn't want to ingest any more of that! We absorb what goes on our skin and if it's on our lips it's being ingested. So after trying out Your Best Face Quench I was so relieved because I knew I had found "the one". No more chapped lips and over two months of use I noticed that my lips looked younger and actually fuller, especially without the superficial dehydration lines. Awesome product with nothing harmful in the ingredient list. Thanks for creating this product!!

    This is a great lip balm. The taste and smell are amazing. Now add to that the remarkable ingredients! Quench is hydrating and moisturizing. And the best part, especially since it's on my lips, is it's completely safe. While $15 may seem costly compared to other lip balms, Quench has some unique anti-aging ingredients (like Spin Trap and Lipochroman-6 ) not found in other less expensive ones that make it worth the money.

    It has a mild mint scent, that fades away very quick, so you don't feel the typical burning of mint lip balms.
    It has the right balance of wax and glossiness, with a mate finish. You can feel that the product gets absorbed and doesn't just stay on top of your lips.
    Because it's all natural and not heavy, you need to reapply after eating or drinking. Not enough moisturizing if your lips are in really bad shape.

    I've been using YBF Quench lip balm now for about two months. It has a lovely smooth application, unlike so many 'drug store' lip balms which seem to sit on top of my lips instead of actually penetrating and hydrating them.

    I love the light scent. The only two reasons I did not give it five stars: It does not have sun protection AND I find myself needing to re-apply it more than I would like. I live in an extremely humid climate, I drink EVERYTHING through a straw (medical issue), & I hydrate my lips with several of my skin care products as I apply them So when I use the Quench, it is not going onto very dry, untreated lips. But, when this product does get some sunscreen, it will be the best lip balm I've ever used in the snow!

    As a footnote: I've been so incredibly impressed with Darrell Owens, the guy behind Your Best Face. He has been incredibly kind and responsive to every question I've posed to him. You cannot get better service than almost immediate answers to your queries from the person who invented the products about which you have questions!!

    My favorite lip balm so far! It feels perfect going on....not too waxy, not too gloppy, tastes fine, and best of all, it LASTS! I get a slight tingle for a few minutes after applying, and I like that. A mild minty, citrusy feeling. It's the best lip balm I've ever used, and yet my lips have a tendency to be chapped....not sure if I'll ever find something that truly takes care of the chapping....but until then, this my go-to product for lip hydration.

    I've tried Burt's Bees, Kiehl's, Aveda, Fresh Sugar, Rosebud, and all the cheap drug store lip balms, but none of them compare to this one. I'm constantly reapplying the other ones, but with Quench it's one and done. I love the way my lips feel and it's definitely worth the price.

    Very disappointed in this product. My lips continue to be chapped, and only feel moisturized when I first apply the balm - just like any other balm. My fav lip product (Lipotoxyl X3 is no longer available in the clear version - was the only thing that kept my lips smooth and chap free for years.) My search continues.

    This is the best lip balm ever! I have had problems with chapped lips my whole life. I've never found a lip balm to completely alleviate this problem until now. After using for a few days I no longer had dry skin peeling from my lips. I've gotten rid of all my other lip balms lying around.
    This balm goes on smooth and makes my lips feel soft without feeling greasy. They stay feeling soft even after the balm has worn off. I agree with Ashley that it would be great if it had an SPF in it, but even without it I will continue to use it for the foreseeable future.

    Favorite lip balm. The nicest thing about it is that my lips feel really moisturized after applying it, and yet it's not oily. If YBF would come out with a version with SPF, it will be perfect. I could use the one with SPF in the day and the one without at night.

    Quench is my favorite lip balm. I will never use anything else because when I stop using it the quality of my lips goes down dramatically.

    This is a great lip balm. I like the way this feels on my lips. It does not have a waxy or heavy feel to it, as many other lip balms do. It moisturizes and hydrates well and even after only 2 days of use, my lips are not as dry or chapped as they were and they feel moisturized. It does not have a glossy look and I like that as well. Like other reviewers, I am probably applying this more often during the day than is necessary, but it feels good and soothing.

    I love this lip balm! Provides enough hydration, it feels like it absorbs and really moisturizes unlike cheaper alternatives that just sit on top. Besides hydration, I also feel like I'm doing my lips good to stop those wrinkles from coming. I wish they also had a version with SPF.

    When I had put this product on my lips for the first time, I instantly felt that it works. It was this blissful feeling of soothing that lasted. I was suprised, to be honest. But it felt good. And it still does, my lips are better than ever. Plus I have found another added bonus. When I had a cold, I patted the balm with my fingers to my under nose area - where all the paper tissue rubbing occurs. After a few days I have noticed that it is not even sore! Now that's a plus!.

    I like the fact that it is not glossy or too emollient and yet it does leave my lips very supple and moist. That feeling lasts for several hours, but as I mentioned above I caught myself putting it on more often then necessary simply because it has this delicate taste of citrus drops with a touch of mint - thanks, I am assuming, to peppermint and clementine oils, just delicious. My lips and I are very happy that we were introduced to YBF Quench

    Have been ordering this since the original formulation and although the old formula felt more moisturising, it was also alot less matte. The formula they use now still stays on after one application provided you don't rub it off somehow (eating etc) and keeps lips just barely moisturised. If you are looking for a heavy duty moisturiser this is not the right one. Otherwise, a brilliant product.

    I’m on a quest to replace all my paraben and other questionable ingredients-filled products with more natural products. I was thrilled because I had heard that YBF has a wonderful skin care line, filled with all natural ingredients. Since it is winter, my lips get chapped very easily, so the time couldn’t be better to try a product like this.
    I’ve been using Quench daily for about a month now and I can report that the product definitely protects my lips and makes them feel less chapped, but the results are only slightly better than I would get by using my old standby, Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. Considering the price difference ($3 for Burt’s Bees and $15 for Quench) and the fact that I have to apply the product by pressing the tube into my lips so that huge clumps don’t come off, I’m not sure this is a product that I would go out and buy for myself. However the fact that YBF fills their products with such high quality ingredients may just bring me back.

    When I placed my order for the YBF eye cream I added on the YBF Lip Quench and emailed to say could they be posted together. The very nice sales department emailed back and said they were sending the Lip Quench to me as a gift just "because". So Christmas has come early. I got the parcel yesterday and have tried both. Too early to notice a difference round the eyes but the lip balm is so good I am about to order a couple more (one for the car, one for the handbag). It really is great and as Marta says, one application lasts for ages. I put it on at night now too (I used to use Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour cream or Vaseline - I dread to think what chemicals I've been ingesting all these years).

    I could seriously use this product right now. This time of year has been extra brutal on my face and lips and I feel like no matter what I do I can't find something to relieve the tight, dry feeling I have. I love finding reviews to help my quest in finding good products so of course I'll review and pass on the favor!

    I received this in sample size. I wasn't sure I liked it because of the unusual softness of the product. Also, when it arrived in the mail, it was quite cold from sitting in my mailbox and had a grainy texture to it. Soft AND grainy seemed a bit too much. However, after letting it sit overnight and warm up just a bit, the graininess wasn't quite so much. I don't know if the graininess is the normal state of this lip balm, and the texture is still unusual, but not completely offputting. It does not leave a grainy feel after application and it does apply well, more like soft lipstick than anything else. After using it for a week or so, I can say that Quench does work at protecting lips outdoors, and it also works well as a nighttime moisturizer. I really do like this. :)

    I am desperate to try YBF quench. I always wear some type of moisture product on my lips plus I now have a cold preventing me from breathing properly through my nose. Forced to breath through my mouth, my lips are even drier and I am running out of moisture resources.

    I would dearly like to try this lip treatment! I'm on accutane, which dries my skin and my lips out something fierce. I've only found one lip balm that helps with the constant peeling on my lips, and the woman who makes it is going out of business! Of course I would do a review... if it works on Accutaned-peeling lips, it would work on any lip problem!

    It would be my pleasure to try and write a review on "Your Best Face Quench!" I have been lucky to have the opportunity to review other beauty products and never failed to write my reviews. I would love to give this lip balm a try because I've been on a mission to find THE ONE, and haven't been successful yet. Thanks.

    I'd love to give the Quench a test and post a review. The reviews and comments on this site have been a godsend in finding products with ingredients I trust.
    My lips are cracked and chapped and I just can't seem to apply enough lip balm. It would be wonderful to find a product that only needs two or three applications a day - I've tried so many. I'll do that sample justice!
    BTW -I just ordered the YBF Control and have high hopes.

    I would love to try a sample of this lip balm. I am a balm junkie and would be able to test it against the best and worst of my lip balm drawer (yes, really).

    This time of year is so hard on my lips, as well as the rest of my skin. It seems I am always applying something and 10 minutes later they feel dry again. I don't know if it's the heat inside, cold outside but my poor lips are dry, dry, dry! I would love to try a sample of this and promise to review it. If it can help my lips that would truly be amazing!
