Your Best Face? Actually, yes!

Your Best Face Skin care review

Your Best Face is a relatively simple anti-aging collection They have only 4 products, containing incredible ingredients that really do help with aging. I’ve been using them for the last 3 weeks or so and have seen great results!

The real basis of these products in the ingredients. This is one of only a very small number of skin care products on the market containing spin traps. Huh? Yes, Spin Traps.

What is a spin trap? Actually, it is a unique form of anti-oxidant. Rather than simply neutralizing the harmful free radicals, spin traps actually take away the extra “bad” electron, returning the oxygen to normal and therefore usable. The spin traps are also much stronger than many other anti-oxidants at hunting down and neutralizing the free radicals.

Many of these products also contain sodium hylauronate (aka- hyaluronic acid, holds a lot of water to itself on the surface of the skin therefore is great at hydrating and plumping the skin), Vitamins B & E (anti-oxidants) as well as several peptides to help with collagen creation.

Defend: Oil Control
I’ve been reaching for Defend every morning, which has a great anti-shine capability that I’ve yet to find in another product. While it is white and creamy with a fruity smell, it does sink in immediately. I feel like it is hydrating my skin, and it really leaves no residue behind. My skin is perfectly prepared for makeup, no greasiness in sight!

The oil fighting properties of this product are amazing! I’ve tried anti-shine products in the past from Clarins and OC Eight, which are remarkable for not working well despite their high price. This product work well all day, requiring no powder or blotting touch-ups!

Defend Ingredients:
Reverse osmosis water, ppg-5 ceteth-20, sodium hyaluronate, propylene glycol, nylon 12, spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), palmitoyl pentapeptide-3, micronized titanium dioxide, cetearyl olivate and sorbitan olivate, paraben du, vitamin e

Control: Extra Collagen Building
Control contains many of the same ingredients as Defend, but rather than having oil fighting abilities this product has extra peptides to help build collagen and firm the skin. This lotion is a light orange color, feels rich and creamy and smells almost like grapes to me. It does feel great on my skin, and it quickly dries to a semi-matte finish. Perfect for applying makeup over!

Control Ingredients:
reverse osmosis water, argireline (acetyl hexapeptide-3), cyclomethicone, ppg-5 ceteth-20, matrixyl 3000 (palmitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3), c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, dimethyl isosorbide, ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), jojoba, nylon 12, idebenone, triethanolamine, alpha lipoic acid, polysorbate 20, sodium hyaluronate, vitamin e, paraben du

Correct: Eye Cream
The eye cream contains 25% peptides (wow, that is a huge amount!), spin traps and other anti-oxidants such as Vitamins A and E galore! I like that it also contains caffeine, which helps to immediately firm the skin. This is a thicker white lotion with the same grape/fruity smell as the other products. It takes a minute or two longer to sink into my skin. But, the extra time is well worth it, since the firming from the caffeine really does help to firm my bags and tighten the area. This is a great eye cream!

Correct Ingredients:
reverse osmosis water, licorice root extract, snap-8 (acetyl glutamyl hexapeptide-3), pepha-timp (polypeptide), cucumber extract, simugel (C16H34), syn-ake (tripeptide), haloxyl (hydroxysuccinimide, chrysin, palmitoyl oligopeptide (and) palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3), nutmeg butter, matrixyl 3000 (palmitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3), dimethyl isosorbide, alpha arbutin, cyclomethicone (and) dimethicone copolyol, ethyhexyl palmitate, spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), glycerine, l-proline, provitamin B5, raspberry seed extract, alpha lipoic acid, sepilift DPHP (palmitoyl-1, palmitoyloxy-4 proline), triglyceride, paraben du, sodium hyaluronate, caffeine, cetearyl isononanoate, ceteareth-20, cetearyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, cetyl palmitate, ceteareth-12, vitamin e, BHT, olive leaf extract, vitamin a, violet leaf extract, oakmoss absolute

Restore: Skin Lightening
Restore combines the anti-aging effects of the other products with a skin lightening ingredient, alpha arbutin. This ingredient is made from Bearberry plant, and it acts on Tyrosinase, an enzyme important in the synthesis of melanin. As well, it acts on some of the intermediate products of melanin creation to decrease overall melanin production. So, while it does create immediate results (since it isn’t directly breaking down the melanin), overtime you will see skin lightening effects.

This lotion has a bit more of a liquid consistency than the other products, is milky white and has that grape-fruity scent that I like. It sinks in quickly, dries quickly to a semi-matte finish (perfect for applying makeup over it) and provides just the right amount of moisture for my combination skin!

Restore Ingredients:
reverse osmosis water, alpha arbutin, c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, sodium hyaluronate, ppg-5 ceteth-20, ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, spin trap (phenyl butyl nitrone), provitamin B5, paraben du, triethanolamine, polysorbate 20, vitamin e

    These products sound amazing! I may get the eye creme.
    Regarding the rest of the products, I have just one question: Are they used in combination over the course of the day, or are they created to use individually for different complexion issues?
    Thank you.

    They sound great, but *Whoa* at the pricetag!

    Arcona makes a paraben free Vitamin A product with spin trap and many other similar antioxidants for half the price.

    MyChelle also makes a peptide cream (with Matrixyl 3000, resveratrol, etc.) for half the price.

    Hi Judy,
    I enjoyed seeing your comment and if you give YBF a try, I think you’ll love our eye cream.

    You’ll find our line very flexible because each product is such a multi-tasker. As a result, you’re able to use our products in combination or individually. This, along with the higher concentrations of each active ingredient make YBF a much better value for many people.

    Some layering options for use include Restore and Correct at night and then either Defend or Control during the day. A number of people have also been using Correct around the lip line and furrow of the brow with incredible results. A little Restore on the lips prior to your other products helps to brighten the lips, making them look fuller and healthier too.

    In order of most emollient to least, they are Correct, Control, Defend and then Restore.

    You’ll notice the nutmeg butter right away in the eye cream, along with the aroma present in the entire line, which many describe as almondy. This is due to the very high concentration of the premium ingredient, Spin Trap.
