1 Year Review: These 3 Products Keep My Skin GLOWING!

Beauty, Life


Mar 15, 2020


Two years ago I shared with you guys my horrible cystic acne journey and how meds and a chemical peel helped me to clear up that issue. I’ve also featured the skincare system I started using shortly after to help my skin bounce back to its glory days.

It’s been just about a year since I’ve started using the Youth To The People skincare line and wanted to give a real life, in depth product review on some of their products that have literally saved my skin! Most times you see people do reviews on products, it’s usually after a few tries and no constant, consistent use.

This is NOT that kind of review.

I’ve been using these products religiously and they’ve definitely stood the test of time. Yes, YTTP prices are in the uppity range, I keep refilling my supply because the line is really that good. Don’t mind the photos, These are actually my third bottles are jars. The products last super long!

Even through those fickle pregnancy phases where my skin was rough and dry and just really having a hard time, these three products (plus sunscreen and some help from baby) stood the test of time and I’ve been experiencing my best glow ever!

DISCLAIMER: I’ve not partnered with YTTP on any paid affiliate marketing collabs. These are my honest and true reviews because I really love this brand!

Glowy Selfies!

Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser

What: A gentle all natural gel cleanser that’s perfect for all skin types. It’s not made with any of the chemicals and additives used in other cleansers. The cleanser comes in a glass bottle which helps to maintain the natural plant-based properties.

Ingredients:  – Kale: A leafy veg that is a must-have for more than just your morning juice; rich in skin-loving phytonutrients and vitamins C, E, and K to strengthen and leave skin glowing.
– Spinach: A lightweight skin soother with cooling properties and rich with conditioning essential fatty acids.
– Green Tea: An anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient that keeps skin clear.

Price: USD$36

Use: morning and night; great for makeup removal!

Why I love it: Other than the amazing fresh cut grass smell, this cleanser really cleanses my skin. It’s super refreshing and leaves my skin feeling alive, renewed and awake. I could literally feel the dirt, makeup and all of the day’s stresses being lifted off my skin when I use this. Nothing like a cleanser that actually cleanses the skin!

Kale + Spinach Hyaluronic Acid Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream

What: A moisturizer perfect for promoting supple, smoothe skin that stays moisturized all day long. The texture of this product is so amazing; it’s not a thick cream, but has a true to life whipped finish that quickly absorbs into the skin.

Ingredients: Kale, Spinach, Green Tea

Price: USD$48

Use: Morning and night

Why I love it: Lightweight, but not a lightweight! This moisturizer is the real deal and helps keep my skin feeling good all day. The almost fluffy texture quickly absorbs into the skin and doesn’t leave any residue or weighty feeling. It provides the perfect bed for makeup application! I love that it’s the perfect mix between a gel and a cream.

Maqui + Acai Prickly Pear Goji Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil

What: The face oil for anyone scared to use face oils! This this truly more hydrating than oily and I absolutely live for that. Most face oils really do the most and leave that thick overwhelming feel on your face, but this is “thee bizness,” really makes you glow and not greasy and it smells so so so good.

Ingredients: Maqui: A free radical eliminator; helps fight the signs of aging.
-Acai: Antioxidant-rich; contains omega 3, 6, and 9 for collagen support; revives dull, dry skin.
-Prickly Pear: Supports cell renewal while reducing redness and hyperpigmentation; hydrates.
-Sunflower/Jojoba Blend: Ultra-hydrating, nutrient-rich oil packed with antioxidants and fatty acids.

Price: $44

Use: Morning and night

Why I love it: I love it because it makes me glow! Never have I ever used a face oil that I could use during the day, made me glow and not shiny and added a soft velvety touch to my skin. At nighttime, I pair it with the moisturizer for ultimate hydration and wake up to amazingly soft skin.

While I will give the baby some credit for my newfound glow, I must say consistent use of these products has really helped me get back to the skin I’ve always loved. It was a real battle even after the chemical peel to get my skin back to great health, now that we’re here and now that I’ve found the products that work for me, aint no turning back now! Oh, I get these items from Sephora!
