A little preview: Once upon a time, there was a girl who used to spend tons of money on all kinds of masks, face creams, and other products that would help her skin feel fresh and look beautiful. She would come across a lot of reviews, learn about the ingredients and get hooked on the ads. One day she got sick and tired of wasting money on the products that may or may not work for her particular type of skin, and she made a promise to herself that she won’t spend a cent until she finds something that would be really good for her. That girl is me.
If you know me, you know that there is nothing more important for me than balance. And I seek to find it in every aspect of my life. I know that vegetables make me feel good, so diet mostly consists of vegetarian produce. So, one day I thought: If vegetables make me feel so good, why don’t I find “vegetables for my skin”? A product that would nourish it and would also prevent my skin aging (since I am only 25 y.o.), something that would be 100% natural. Google offered me to cover my face with cucumber puree, add some homemade spinach mask, and to use tea bags to relieve tired eyes. Now imagine me driving around like that… 😁
This is when I came across brand called “Youth to the People” that could be barely seen on the shelves at my local Sephora store. The word “Youth” was quite catchy, so I got curious. I read about the concept of the company:
“We believe that the products you put on your skin should be as whole, clean and packed with nutrients as the food you put in your body. Harnessing powerful antioxidants and phytonutrients from cold-pressed plant extracts, Youth To The People combines superfoods and science to keep your skin as youthful, vibrant, and full of life as you are.”
You buy your first product and it works. Then you buy another one…..and it works. Long story short, my favorite thing about the products of the brand: they work.
About moisturizer and eye cream: they have incredibly light formula, so you can barely feel the moisturizer on your skin and the eye cream under your eyes. I want to keep my skincare routine simple and, at the same time, know that it won’t be harmful.
About cleanser: I try to maintain an active lifestyle, so at the end of the day I feel like my skin craves good cleaning and pampering. I am not sure if I have ever tried anything as good as this cleanser. It gently cleans out the pores without overdrying my face.
About superfood mask: all I have to say is that every time I use the mask, I feel like my skin has just had a smoothie!
Something I considered when I decided whether I wanted to give it a try or not:
– 100% vegan ingredients
– no parabens
– no added fragrance
– no animal testing
– no added color
– no sulfates
– no phthalates
– cold-pressed extracts made in the USA
and, what is also important, 100% recyclable packaging.
I hope you liked this post! What is your current favorite skincare brand?
