Superfoods have been making headlines in the health industry for years, but only recently has the concept been adopted by the beauty industry.
Youth To The People have pioneered the way when it comes to incorporating health and lifestyle into beauty products. The line is founded on the idea that what you apply to your skin should be as nourishing and wholesome as what you eat. Taking the concept of a beautiful cold-pressed green juice and turning that into skincare. Combining both superfoods and science, YTTP boast formulas that are 100% vegan, fragrance-free, cruelty-free and packaging that is 100% recyclable. So not only are the products perfected through science, but they are also high-quality with a huge social conscience.
I have been trialling three of Youth To The People’s most popular products and thought I would share my thoughts and see if they live up to their claims.
This is where the green juice concept is most obvious; just look at those hero ingredients, and that colour! The product is housed in a beautiful glass bottle and really looks gorgeous sitting in the shower or on the vanity.
Packed with antioxidant-rich kale, spinach, green tea, and alfalfa, Youth to the People Age Prevention Cleanser keeps your skin glowing and protects against free radical damage, environmental stresses, and redness. It’s gentle and non-drying, so your skin is left feeling refreshed and clean. Use it daily to prevent buildup in pores, while keeping your skin balanced and healthy-looking.
The formula is as you’d expect from the colour, it is fresh, light and refreshing. True to form, it doesn’t foam up all that much, as it is gel cleanser, which I like as I find foaming cleanser generally make my skin feel dry and tight. Although it is free from added fragrance, there is a slight subtle hint of fresh fruity-ness but it is a nice bonus.
The YTTP Age Prevention Cleanser leaves my skin feeling super soft, fresh and clean. It removes dirt and makeup like a dream and it really is a pleasure to use. After over a months use, I can say that this is a hardworking but simplistic cleanser. It is practical but doesn’t produce any hard hitting results. Instead it is a reliable cleanser that without fail leaves skin bright, clean and super fresh. I noted that my skin didn’t dry out, nor was it left feeling greasy. It balanced my skin and did a great job at keeping it clean.
The colour of this mask instantly makes me think of a bitter green, but oh-so healthy green juice. This mask is meant to be suitable for all skin tones and targets, yep, you guessed it, fine lines and aging.
Age Prevention Superfood Mask feeds your skin with the best superfoods—sea greens, spirulina, and bioactive microalgae combined with a proprietary blend of kale, spinach, and green tea. This powerful formula delivers age-fighting antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to protect from free radicals and support natural turnover. Crosslinked hyaluronic acid keeps you fresh by visibly plumping, hydrating, and locking in moisture for a youthful-looking complexion.
The Superfood mask feels and looks like a rich heavy duty mask. The scent is much stronger than the cleanser and smells quite earthy and herb-y. The formula spreads best with a brush as it is quite thick. As soon as I applied the mask to my face, I felt a cold slightly stinging sensation – which I’m not worried about, in fact I quite like it, but I would imagine it would be intense for those sensitive skin gals. I like to layer the mask on quite thick, so it does take a little while to dry and it continues to give off a cooling feeling the whole time.
After the mask is washed off, my skin looks ahhhhhmazing. My pores seem to be minimised and any active acne is definitely lessened and any redness is gone. I wouldn’t agree with the claims that the mask locks in moisture, as my skin feels a little dry and is in need of a hydration top up afterwards. Overall it is a fabulous mask, but I think it is more suited to normal to oily skin types.
Whoa, what a mouthful. Again, sticking to the anti-ageing theme, this moisturiser focuses on plumping the skin, while treating fine lines and wrinkles.
Packed with leafy green superfoods like spinach, kale, and green tea, Youth to the People’s multi-benefit moisture cream restores, rejuvenates, and conditions the skin. The light, whipped texture absorbs quickly to deliver antioxidants and phytonutrients that protect against free radicals, environmental stresses, and redness. Hyaluronic acid hydrates and locks in your skin’s natural moisture. The refreshing, subtle scent is naturally derived from cold-pressed extracts.
This cream isn’t really a cream at all. The formula has a light, gel-like consistency and is a gorgeous minty green that has a similar scent as the cleanser. This is easily my favourite pick of the bunch. The moisturiser melts in after 15 seconds, it is light but certainly packs a punch. My face looks instantly brighter and fresh, and not to mention it is super smooth and noticeably more plump. I do think however, that it may not be the best match for dry skin, as I don’t think it would be rich nor hydrating enough.
Overall, while I really do love all the products, and think the concept behind it is fabulous. I don’t find the products to be too revolutionary as far as results go. Butttttt if you are health conscious and a bit of a foodie, I think this range would be absolutely ideal and a great addition to your skincare regime.
