YBF Skincare is an outstanding line with powerful anti-aging skincare solutions. Founders Darrell and Kimberley are a team of two and onlytwo. They do everything from creating the formulas, products and packaging to running the website and answering emails. Being a one woman show myself I can appreciate how challenging that is! It’s also one reason I love YBF so much–if I have a question about a product, product application or want to know which products can benefit my particular skin issues, all I have to do is ask!
You’ve already heard me rave about YBF Prep Microdermabrasion, now I’d like to tell you about a couple of other products that have really made a difference in my skincare routine.
Hydrate B Concentrate($40) attracts and draws moisture deeper into the skin helping active ingredients better penetrate, stay effective longer and perform better. Three forms of Vitamin B rejuvenate the skin and improve tone and texture. Hydrate B is a light clear gel that absorbs quickly and is meant to be used before moisturizers and serums to lock in moisture. I saw an almost immediate improvement in my formally dry skin.
Ingredients: reverse osmosis water, vitamin B5, sodium hyaluronate, niacin (B3), dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), paraben du
Define Lip Area Cream($70) address anti-aging concerns with the lips. I have a very thin upper lip and it really bothers me–I think it ages me and it disappears when I smile. In fact, that’s why I don’t post lip looks–I don’t have an upper lip! I actually did consider Restylane until I found out it was going to cost me $500 and a whole lotta bruising–uh, no thank you! Back in the day when I was modeling in my early 20’s, no one had the big fish lips that are so revered today so it didn’t matter. But now my thin lips are seriously beginning to affect my self esteem. Define helps gives me back some of the self esteem that Angelina Jolie stole from me! Define provides peptides to fill lips and smooth lines and antioxidants to help heal. It’s a white sort of gel consistency and smells minty. You can massage a smidgen into the lips or use as a nighttime mask. I used Define liberally at nighttime and it has saved my lips this winter. After using it for a week, I was really amazed at how soft my lips felt and how well my lipsticks and gloss applied. I never realized what a difference having smooth plump lips makes when wearing lipstick! And I’m sorry to admit this but smooth plump lips do help me to look younger. I’ve decided I never want to look like Taylor on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills–I have no idea what she actually talks about because I’m too busy staring at her fish lips! No lip fillers for me–for reals.
