Your Best Face: A Great Scrub and Concentrates
Today is the last day of recapping Your Best Face's products, yes a company that I love. Again, they feature Spin Traps, super high powered anti-oxidants that will help you prevent aging. I haven't mentioned it in my previous posts, but this is a company that you really need to follow on Twitter and Fan on Facebook. They have a ton of specials and I swear that they run at least one amazing contest a day on Twitter. (I try to retweet them from my Twitter feed, but I'm sure I miss a lot. Just follow them directly so you can win some great skin care.)
Today we'll go over a few more products, so read on to find out about the last few items in the line.
• Vitamin C
• Spin Traps
Quench is one of my lip balm obsessions, and I admit that I carry this around with me pretty frequently. I love that I can have a great balm and do a little bit in my fight against aging at the same time.
• Small, very fine and regularly shaped grit (yay!)
• Spin traps and other anti-oxidants
I've reviewed Prep previously, though I will say once again that I am crazy, super picky about what scrubs I will recommend. This one has the fine and even grit that I like (look at the picture below, you can't even tell that it is a scrub by looking at it), just enough of it, it rinses off easily and I love it.
This product (and the next) are interesting in that they aren't really meant to be "stand alone", but rather to be mixed and matched with other items. Have a neck cream that you love but it doesn't have anti-oxidants? The idea is to add a little of this right before you apply, thereby boosting the anti-aging abilities of your own product. You could also use it selectively in certain areas of your face (around the mouth or eyes for example) if you want extra anti-aging power there. The product does have a little Hyaluronic Acid to help moisturize, but it is nearly the last ingredient.
This is a very light lotion (it almost borders on a thick serum) that sinks in almost immediately. I am not sure if it would be better to apply this on its own or mixed into another product, but it is definitely light enough that you could easily pair it with a full moisturizer that you are already using.
Hydrate B Concentrate
• Hyaluronic Acid
Another product that isn't exactly stand alone, this one is very simple. It is a clear gel that has a few B vitamins (such as Niacin) in it, but the real point is that it contains a ton of Hyaluronic Acid, so will help draw moisture to the skin (read more about humectants in my moisturizers post). So, you can use this in conjunction with any product that might not be moisturizing enough for you. Remember the other day when I was saying that some of the lightweight YBF products were great but not quite moisturizing enough for my combination skin in the winter? This is absolutely perfect for that situation. You can use an application of Hydrate B before the other product (since this is a highly water based gel it is better to apply before the lotion most likely), and then your usual product. Now you won't need to totally switch up your skin care routine just because the season has changed!
