Youth To The People

My first Youth To The People purchase was the Kale+Green Tea Vitamins cleanser, it’s a gentle cleanser and works pretty well for my sensitive/combination skin. I wish I could splurge and buy everything from the Youth To The People line!

I was in need of a new moisturizer and purchased the Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream and I love it! It’s great for my sensitive skin (no post breakouts) and I find it to be hydrating without making me oily, it seeps into the skin perfectly. Because it’s light weight its great for a nighttime skincare routine because no one likes that heavy feeling after you’ve layered on all your night time products. I also want to mention this moisturizer will be a savior and must have for the winter season!

Btw YTTP is vegan and cruelty free and packs all their products in glass containers which can be repurposed or recycled I’m actually going to use the cleanser bottle as a hand soap dispenser once I’m done using it!

Overall Rating 5/5

The Derma E Microdermabrasion scrub is a must have! If you’re looking for a salon quality exfoliant then look no further. I use this once a week to kick-start my skincare routine because it removes all the dead skin cells that build up and rough patches on my face from healed acne so it resurfaces my skin for a smoother softer texture. I have also used this on stubborn rough patches on my skin like my elbows and it does wonders! personally speaking as someone with sensitive skin I wouldn’t recommend using it everyday but I find using it once a week does the trick. I cannot really comment on the product alone about its claims of diminishing fine-lines as I use other products but perhaps the microdermabrasion scrub coincides with a anti-wrinkle moisturizer. As someone who is in her late 20’s early 30’s I do believe this product is a must-have for people who are looking for a good exfoliant, or if you tend to go to the spa for a microdermabrasion treatment I say you can skip it and do it at home for less than what you would pay based on service. Derma E makes a big range of skincare products and I have used 3 products from the brand all which I am very satisfied with when it comes to down the products performance.

Overall Rating 5/5 

Progenius is not an under statement, After only one week of use I have seen personal results which makes me a true believer in this product. I have seen numerous benefits from my skins texture,a natural glow to an improvement with post breakouts and the soothing/calming benefits it provides on my occasional mild cystic acne. On the third day I woke up and couldn’t help but admire my skin in the mirror as it had a youthful glow and my skintone looked evened out.

(my apologies for the poor quality result photos as it was taken with my iphone)

I should not expect less from a product which contains natural quality ingredients such as Coleous Root Extract to help defend against free radicals,Organic Rosemary which contain powerful antioxidants, Bakuchiol which helps improve skin texture and combat enviormental stressors (which is beneficial especially if you live in a big city as I do in New York) and other ingredients like Vitamin C, Rose Hip Seeds and Omega 3&6.

I have also applied the rescue oil around my under eyes which helps immensely to keep them hydrated especially since I use alot of cream based concealers (those can be quite drying.) Most skincare regimens call for 3 to 6 weeks to see results however it has only been 1 week! I’m looking forward to continuing my use of this product as I feel it provides great benefits. While the retail value of the Nude Progenius Rescue Oil is $68 I however believe its worth every penny!

For those of you who are also a fan of the Nude Skincare brand please feel free to share your experience, I would love to hear your feedback 🙂

Overall Rating 4/5 

I recieved this sample package with a sephora order and just recently used it. I’m on the third day of use and can already see noticeable changes in my skins texture and probelmatic pimples have greatly reduced. I will say it is quite drying which I wouldn’t recommend for daily use though the product claims it is safe to do so. I did get alittle redness post treatment but it went away within 3 minutes, nothing too irritating. I would love to make this part of my skincare routine but holy moly it is pricey! I am pleased with the results which makes me a believer in this product however its one of those products to rarely splurge on.
