Either treatment will leave skin silky smooth, radiant and more receptive to other treatments to follow. Thanks to the glowing reviews this product has received from our community, you can purchase this microdermabrasion treatment without hesitation!

The all new formulation of Prep is packed with active ingredients designed to deliver your most radiantly smooth complexion yet.

TIA Review by Gloria:
I have been using the Your Best Face Prep for a month and I have to say I am very pleased with the results so far. I have used other exfoliators, but none have been as fine as Prep. My face feels absolutely smooth as a baby's bottom. I have extremely sensitive skin and also use the Clarisonic facial brush. On the days I use the Prep I lay off the Clarisonic.

I went for a facial two weeks ago and my esthetician told me to keep using Prep in conjunction with the other products I use. I love the rather unique fragrance it has. It smells like a spa in a jar. A little goes a long way and for me using it two times a week is enough.

I will definitely keep Prep in my keep drawer. My other products go on so easy and it doesn't seem like you need as much of the serums and moisturizers. That means they go a lot farther and saves money in the long run while making your face look younger and smoother.

Your Take...

  • Hi Anne, we do not sell any products with microbeads. They are made from plastic and will appear in ingredients lists as polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polymethyl methacrylate, polylactic acid, or nylon. They have been banned by President Obama in 2015. The exfoliator in this product is aluminum oxide crystals.

  • Hello - a cosmetic dermatologist told me many scrubs are not perfectly spherical and can damage your skin with micro-tears. Is there information about how the beads work and if they are safe for fish when them go down the drain? Thanks!

  • Hi there -- Darrell here from Your Best Face!
    I've had some questions about where to find the vitamin B oil Jessica talks about in her review of Prep.

    That's actually my Hydrate B Concentrate and is indeed a great pairing with Prep. Hydrate B is actually oil-free in case that is important to you and good to know; and is a water-based Concentrate serum with hyaluronate, several water soluble B vitamins and a skin firming peptide as the actives.

    You'll find Hydrate B Concentrate grouped with the other products in my line here in the Truth In Aging shop.

    Thank you to everyone interested in my line and many thanks also to Jessica for sharing your experience and also finding great ways to pair my products for some great synergy!

    All my best,
    Darrell

    I've never been a big user of facial masques or exfoliating agents (other than the indirect effects of ingredients such as retinol in it's various forms). That being said, this is an AMAZING product! Since I do not have many products or experiences w/ which to compare YBF's Prep, I was unsure what to expect. It did not go on as smoothly as I expected. I've been using it approximately twice per week in conjunction w/ a twice weekly use of Trophy Skin Microderm MD and I'm down to 2-3 times/week in my Sciote retinol serum/creme use.

    The consistency is of a very tiny granular, fairly dry product. I decided that I would go for using it as a masque and added a few drops of YBF's Vitamin B oil when I apply the Prep. This makes applying it much easier and when I rinse it off with cold water (I find it much easier to get my face clear of all of the product after a 15 minute masque if I use a soft facial cloth), the Vitamin B leaves my skin even smoother. The few times I've had professional facials and/or microdermabrasion sessions, my skin did NOT feel as soft and renewed as it has with Prep.

    Because I've ONLY used it as a full masque (not as an exfoliating product that I put on and wash off in one fell swoop), I'm finding that the ONE slight downside is that I'm finding it a challenge to get all of the product off of my face and my neck. The directions do not specifically suggest using it on the neck, but most, but not all of the products I use....I DO apply to my neck. Otherwise, I can find NO catches with Prep use!

    This will be a permanent part of my skincare regimen. Thank you YBF, again...for designing yet another winning skin care product!!

    I have been using YBF Prep for a few months and the results keep getting better and better. I am 53 and I was one of those teenagers who laid out in the sun with baby oil on my skin. I didn't know about sun screen. I have some sun damage and Prep has improved it over the time I've used it! I've used many different exfoliators over the years, but nothing works like this. It's gentle, but so effective against sun spots, blackheads and oily skin. Yes, I still have combination skin and blemishes at this age. Another plus, you don't have to use very much to get the benefits. I highly recommend this great product. It's worth every penny.


  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This is absolutely one of my favorites... I feel a bit of an addiction! Prep has me as soon as I open the jar because I love the scent of this product. A little goes a long way so the jar will last for quite some time - well worth the price. It rinses off easily and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth and looking brighter. Prep has helped with some red marks left behind by acne as well. I would say I have sensitive skin, I'm always hesitant to put something new on it for fear that it will react in anger. Prep has not irritated my face at all. This is one of few products I will continue to purchase!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This is such a great product. At first, I was unsure what value a physical exfoliant could have in my routine, but I decided to try it because of all the good reviews. I am sure glad I did. That's when I discovered how great it was to have both physical and chemical exfoliants in my anti-aging arsenal. I especially like you can leave it on for the extra peptides and antioxidants to penetrate. It's actually a pretty unique product. The granules are super tiny. I find it really helpful when my skin is peeling a little bit, it helps to remove those terrible peeling bits of skin...although I try to avoid my skin peeling it does happen sometimes. It also does a great job of clearing out pores. A+ love it

    The product blew me away. I have used many, many microdermabrasion products over the years but I have never come across one such as this. I am a 52-year-old woman in the throes of menopause. My face, as well as my moods, is on a constant rollercoaster ride of new challenges.

    The product had a very pleasent scent, it reminded me of being at a spa. After cleansing my face, I applied a small amount of Prep to my skin. A little amount of product goes a long way. I was surprised to find that the granules were extremely miniscule and its texture was creamy, I had not experienced this with any other dermabrasion product. I buffed my skin gently and rinsed. I could not believe how soft my skin was. It was very, very smooth and hydrated. My face had that glow and it felt like I had already applied moisturizer to it.

    I continued to use the YBF Prep three times a week. Into week three I noticed that my large pores (yes, I have those too) had almost disappeared. My skin appeared brighter and younger looking, if that is possible. My husband even noticed the change. That is big deal, my husband does not notice things like that. I also used the product on my lips. It is gentle enough to exfoliate the skin and leave your lips super soft. This helps with lipstick application.

    My skin issues include some sun spots, a few patchy areas of sun damage (that others can’t see but I see them in my magnifying mirror), some inverted oil glands, some random small bumps and lastly some redness along with uneven coloring & texture. When I use YBF Prep, I feel like every one of these issues is significantly diminished. My skin feels baby soft after using this product, and it looks healthy.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I've found that generally, YBF products work well for me. They don't give me instant "wow" results, but they are very soothing to use, stabilize my skin and over time improve it. YBF Prep is a favorite facial scrub. The grains are fine and exfoliate well, and what I like best is that it washes off easily and cleanly, leaving my face nice and soft. Most scrubs require plenty of water and splashing to wash off, and sometimes I can feel leftover stray grains after patting dry my face. Not Prep! And yes, one jar lasts and lasts, so it's worth the price.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I love this product. I have so many large pores on and around my nose that I'm constantly reminded of Minnesota and its 10,000 lakes. After 10 weeks of using Prep three times a week, I can't believe the difference. I'm not saying all of my pores are all closed but its getting there. I can't wait to see what another 10 weeks bring. In addition, Prep leaves my sensitive skin feeling clean and polished. I haven't tried it as a mask yet like others but I'm going to this weekend. I should also note that you need so little of the Prep to get good results that it is very economical.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I just want to update my original review, I loved this product to begin with and I believe that they updated it slightly, in any case I find it to be less dry than the original one that I used, the product stays more moist in the container than before, which is great. But what I really wanted to update is how I combine products, in this case, I put a few drops of Josie Maran's Argan Cleansing Oil in my palm and mix it with this product and it makes a lovely combination to really clean and polish my skin. My skin feels super clean afterwards and not at all dry, and it is a wonderful way to prep my skin before using my facial devices.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I generally love YBF and I specifically love the formulation of Prep and all the great exfoliating and hyperpigmentation-fighting ingredients packed into it. Like others, the price is the only thing keeping me from constantly using it!

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I would have to say that I also love Prep. I have used everything before and nothing gets close to a spa-level service like Prep. My only complaint is the price. It is really pricey for an exfoliator. For that reason, I go without it for awhile and then break down and buy it again.
    It's very impressive how it buffs the skin without actually damaging it or causing excessive redness.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I received my first "prep" as a sample size and liked it enough to buy a larger size. I was a little concerned initially that the particles felt a little rough, but I have not had any adverse effects on my skin and it definitely makes my skin feel quite clean and polished. The cleansing/exfoliating particles have been effective at cleaning without tearing. I am a big fan of YBF products in general and some of the pros on this one are not just its effectiveness, but that, as with their other products, a little goes a long way. It seems to have the right level of intensity that I can use it several times a week as it leaves my skin very clean without feeling stripped of moisture.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I absolutely love love love this product! It's gentle enough and really cleans out my blackheads and helps keep my acne in check. I try other exfoliators but I keep coming back to this one. Thank you TIA for stocking it- I do not know how else I would get YBF products here in Australia. Thank you!

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I do love this... exfoliator/microdermabrasion/masque - because it's all three . It's gentle enough not to aggravate my rosacea, it cleans out my pores and it helps make inroads into my tiny wrinkles. What's not to like? It smells good, feels good and is gentle to use a couple of times a week. Another great offering from YBF!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I have used the microdermabrasion cream and LOVED the texture and gentle yet refreshing exfoliation it gives.

    I love love love Prep! It is the best mask and leaves my skin looking smooth and bright!

    I love the prep microdermabrasion cream. It is very effective at polishing my skin and leaving it very soft and smooth.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    This product is fantastic. The consistency is perfect for a microdermabrasion and the ingredients are great. Love that its a scrub and a mask. My skin feels so smooth and fresh after using. I don't love the price but I did purchase.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Great microdermabrasion! I feel it's close to being like the one I get once a month at my aesthetician. I can save money using this product and have something else done at her business!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Feels really nice, exactly right amount of "abrasion". Serum and moisturizer feels extra effective when applied after Prep.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I'm actually typing this with "Prep" on my face, neck and décolletage and loving the product. I've never exfoliated with anything stronger than Lush's "Angels on Bare Skin" before and even though that's a lovely product, the difference is like day and night. I've only had this product for a couple of weeks and this is my 4th application and I can't believe what I've been missing out on.
    I find the micro particles very abrasive, I'm not used to this and only scrub with the most minimal pressure, I can feel the mask doing it's job now but with no discomfort. And the effect is amazing, I actually have a baby and even though I'll never achieve that level of softness on his bottom, I feel this is the closest I'll ever get. Definitely a keeper and I will repurchase before I run out.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I'm so glad this came in a YBF sampler, because I would never have thought to try it otherwise. I have sensitive, thin skin that's very prone to irritation and inflammation, and as a result I avoid anything remotely abrasive. But since I love the other YBF products so much, I gave Prep a try, and was soon using it every day. Amazingly it's given me NO irritation. On the contrary, it leaves my skin smooth and plump. I've had no problem with breakouts since I started using it (which is a small miracle in itself), and old red discolorations are fading to the point where I don't have to wear makeup. Keep running those YBF promotions, TIA. Every time you do, I become addicted to another great product.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I was just searching the site because I had run out of this wonderful product, decided I would write a review. I am a scrub addict, there I said it. I have been in search of the perfect one thought I found it in the last kit by Marta. But having tried YBF Prep I know now this is the one. I have large pores around my nose that I am so self conscious of and this minimized them with the first use I could not believe it. By the time I finished the jar not only did my skin look really great but pores are practically no more. I hope this helps someone looking for a fantastic scrub and I agree with Marta use on neck and chest area also you will be pleased with the results. Now I must order order more!

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I absolutely love the reformulated Prep. It seems to be a little bit creamier than the original Prep which my combination skin is appreciating this winter. With the old Prep, I used it as a scrub twice a week and once a week as a mask. With the added peptides in the reformulated Prep, I've been leaving it on as a mask 3 times a week so not to waste the benefits of any of them. Unlike other masks, Prep serves as an exfoliant first (apply in a circular motion on wet skin) and washes off easily. The original formula is a great product. The reformulated Prep is PERFECTION!

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I find Prep to be so versatile. Great of course as a microdermabrasion scrub but I like to use it in combination with other products or ingredients too.
    I add some Tilvee mask powder or some yogurt or other DIY ingredient. My favorite is to put LaVie Celeste facial cleaner on and then add a smidge of Prep to the nose, mouth, forehead, neck, or whatever area needs a bit extra but not a full scrub. Skin feels very clean but also soft and glowy.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I would first like to start by saying how balanced this facial scrub is. The particles are fine enough so they do not tear the epidermis. Also I noticed, In the morning when I was in a rush, I could take a cloth with water and it would come right off. Other facial scrubs will not easily come off unless you were in the shower. This one comes right off so it kind of makes you want to use it as part of your regimen.
    My skin felt extremely clean and I felt a little more confident that all my make-up was removed unlike other products. In addition, my skin glowed.
    Everything was perfect about this product except one thing: I had trouble opening and closing the lid of the jar. Other than that I definitely will be purchasing this again. I found the consistency to be balanced and my skin loved it.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    Prep has a creamy consistency with the most ultra fine crystals imaginable that left my skin feeling polished. Instead of red and irritated, my skin felt smooth and refreshed. I appreciate that it also serves dual roles as exfoliant and mask. Quick and easy, you simply lightly massage a small amount onto damp skin and rinse or you can leave on for a few minutes as a mask. I used this at night three times a week as a mask to reap the maximum benefit. What I had left on my fingertips I used to give the back of my hands a treatment also. The product rinses easily, completely and a little bit goes a long way. The range of benefits listed on their website include: brightens skin, smoothes & refines, reduces wrinkles & inflammation, balances skin, discourages future blemishes. I found after a couple of uses it also eliminated a few tiny blackheads that were beginning to form on my forehead.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I have been using Prep for about a month and I am very pleased with results. I am 34 years old and have oily/combination skin. My trouble areas include enlarged pores, post-acne marks, light hyperpigmentation, and emerging fine lines around my eyes and my nose.
    I have used Prep 3 times a week primarily as a mask. It significantly decreased scarring on my face, blemishes, smoothed out a few small hyperpigmentation marks, and evened out the entire complexion. It’s a powerful product when it comes to tackling blackheads. I found that it was easier to apply my makeup afterwards.
    As YBF founders warn, “Prep is not necessarily suited for the most sensitive skin types, but works amazingly well for those with normal to sensitive skin.”
    It did not significantly decrease my lines. The product gets washed off after all, but right after use, my face did look tighter and a bit more supple.
    It retails for $80 / 1.7 oz (50 ml) but a little goes a long way. It is a very generous jar, indeed.

    I have been using the Your Best Face Prep ($80 in the TIA shop) for a month and I have to say I am very pleased with the results so far. I have used other exfoliates, but none have been as fine as Prep. My face feels absolutely smooth as a baby's bottom. I have extremely sensitive skin and also use the Clarisonic facial brush. On the days I use the Prep I lay off the Clarisonic. If I use both, my face is a bit red for a while and it can cause too much irritation.
    I went for a facial two weeks ago and my esthtitician told me to keep using Prep in conjunction with the other products I use. I love the rather unique fragrance it has. It smells like a spa in a jar. A little goes a long way and for me using it 2x a week is enough.
    I will definitely keep Prep in my keep drawer. My other products go on so easy and it doesn't seem like you need as much of the serums and moisturizers. That means they go a lot farther and saves money in the long run while making your face look younger and smoother.

    This is still the gold standard and the real workhorse in the YBF line. Great results, and really not expensive given that a very little goes a very long way.

Interview with YBF founder Darrell Owens (VIDEO)

This is a real treat - a conversation with Your Best Face founder Darrell Owens. I first got to know Darrell in the early days of Truth In Aging and was intrigued to discover that he himself…

For best results, use only at night and one to three times per week. Avoiding the eye area, apply a thin layer of PREP to clean, damp skin. Lightly massage in a circular motion. Rinse or leave on as a mask for up to 15 minutes. When rinsing, use cool water and always follow with moisturizer. Suitable for all skin types except highly sensitive.
