YSL Forever Youth Liberator – One Week In
I’m always a bit nervous when trying out new skincare. In fact, I tend to brace myself for a negative reaction.In the past, new skincare has resulted in hives, rashes and other skin irritations. As a result, I’ve become very, very loyal to the products that do work for me. As you can imagine, trying out YSL’s Forever Youth Liberator products was definitely a leap of faith. (If you missed my first post post about my experiment with YSL, click here.)
For about a week now, I’ve been testing out Forever Youth Liberator serum, eye cream and day cream.
The Serum is my favorite so far. I use before moisturizer in the morning and at night. While it looks rich, it doesn’t feel thick or heavy and absorbs into the skin easily without any greasy residue. After it’s on, my skin feels supple to the touch.
Morning and night, I pat the eye cream around my under eye area. This was the part that made me extra nervous. I’ve had terrible reactions to eye creams in the past. Terrible. For instance, I’ve had creams that literally dried out my under eye area resulting in lines that weren’t there before! With this product, YSL has delivered and I am at peace. This eye cream is working for me. It doesn’t feel greasy nor does it feel heavy.
Finally, there’s the day cream. It has an SPF of 15 which is a bonus, and like the two other products I’ve described, it’s light but feels very moisturizing. My skin feels amazing after I put it on, and it works beautifully under makeup.
Overall prognosis? I’m pleasantly surprised. I’m pleased with how the products apply, and how my face feels after application. I can say that while it may be not apparent in pictures above, my skin does feel smoother. Now, is that because there’s an actual change or just wishful thinking? I’m not sure to be honest. It will be interesting to see after three weeks.
How often do you switch out your skincare?
