Good skin takes concentration…YBF’s highly concentrated product line, that is.
We heart this favorite YBF (Your Best Face) is a groundbreaking skincare line created with a commitment to the safest, most effective ingredients, whether they be natural or synthetic. YBF stays on top of the latest technology in order to create potent combinations of antioxidants, peptides, vitamins and botanicals that aim to provide whatever care our skin needs. Recently, I took all three products in their amazing concentrates treatment series for a test drive.
The concentrates, like all YBF products, are housed in unique airless pump containers that are so hygienic, the products have minimal need for preservatives – always a plus!
Of course, everyone’s skincare needs are unique. My skin, for instance, is parched and flaky all winter long, yet morphs into an oily-t-zoned minefield as soon as summer hits. YBF offers formulas that effectively fight aging in skin of any type, and now YBF has reformulated its three most powerful weapons – its concentrates – to be even more effective at fighting the signs of aging.
Hydrate B concentrate ($45)
This unscented, clear gel is designed to boost hydration by drawing moisture deeper into the skin, where it can make the most of active ingredients. Hydrate B includes three forms of B vitamins, and, when used in combination with other products, works to speed healing and improve tone and texture.
I found it to be rich, slippery, and very effective at locking in moisture. A tiny bit goes a long way. It multitasks as a moisturizing pre and post-shave treatment, also.
Antioxidants concentrate ($55)
This lightweight serum is packed full of anti-aging marvels such as ferulic acid, spin trap (the “superhero of antioxidants”) and vitamin E. This serum not only helps tone and brighten skin, it also rejuvenates and heals the skin surface. I enjoyed this serum, and noticed it has a very a distinct scent, almost like almonds. Yum.
All three concentrates can be used alone or blended with other skincare products (like moisturizers and masks) to increase thier effectiveness. Besides facial skin care, this antioxidant-rich concentrate is great for use on neck, chest, hands, elbows and knees – anywhere skin can use a little help!
Advanced CE concentrate (day cream) ($50/1oz/30ml)
New to the YBF line, this was my favorite of the three concentrates. The lightweight, scent-free lotion has high levels of anti-aging vitamins C and E, and contains reverse osmosis water. While some people find vitamin C products can irritate the skin, this high potency lotion is great for all skin types, even those with sensitive skin.
I found that this lotion sinks in quickly and feels soothing. After a month of use, my skin looks healthy and radiant. YBF calls this “the best vitamin C product you’ll ever find,” and they just might be right!
