Youth To The People. The Youth Minis Kit Review

youth to the people skincare review


Ever since having tried and being impressed at the YTTP Superfood Cleanser, I felt like I needed to check out what other products this brand offers. It seems like Youth To The People (interesting name, huh?) is one of those brands that does clean skincare very very well and is also very innovative at it. Therefore, I decided that the best way to get a first impression of some of their bestsellers is to try their limited edition The Youth Minis Kit (48 USD).

youth to the people skincare

This kit contains five of YTTP’s favorites/bestsellers, and they are made with the concept of being vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free and overall made of clean ingredients. Speaking of ingredients, these products are mostly based on our superfoods, so they’re great for all skin types. Also, the minis in this kit come in clear glass packagings that are recyclable and I love their minimalistic/simplistic design.


Here now are my thoughts about these products.Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser and Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil ReviewSuperfood Antioxidant Cleanser: This cleanser is the first I’ve tried from YTTP. I’ve got several samples of this a couple of months ago and had enjoyed it so much. It’s one of those cleansers that you know you’re going to keep as soon as you first lather it on your face. One of my first impressions of it was the fact that it smells soooo good, so clean, and it just feels so nice. It’s got a good blend of kale and spinach that smells vegan and fresh. It’s so lightweight and it foams well, so it feels overall clean on the skin. It won’t strip any of the natural oil on the face, so no worries about being very drying at all. My oily-prone skin loves this and I’m sure anybody can use this. I think this cleanser should be a keeper.


Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil: This oil also smells divine. Like fresh sweet berries you just can’t get enough of. It isn’t sticky and it doesn’t feel heavy on the face. It actually feels more like a dry oil and just a few drops of this can give you that instant glow from within. Also, this doesn’t irritate my skin and I love to apply this either at night or in the morning to lock in skin moisture.

Youth to the People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask Review

Superfood Hyaluronic Acid (Air-Whip) Moisturizer: This has a nice, fresh, light scent that is quite similar to the YTTP Superfood Cleanser. This moisturizer may be light but it packs on moisture. My skin absorbs this easily and it keeps it moisturized all throughout the day. I never had any irritation issue with this so far, like some reviewers mentioned. I do think that this is a very nice option as an everyday face moisturizer.

Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream: With Ashwagandha and Reishi as some of its ingredients, this cream is meant to calm and soothe sensitive or irritated skin, while delivering intense moisture at the same time. Upon my first impression, I did notice that this cream does not have any scent and it does feel very creamy on the skin. I feel like I could also use this cream everyday or I could use this whenever my skin suffers a breakout or any irritation.Youth to the People Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream

Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask:  This is probably my second or could be third (Glow Oil) favorite product from YTTP. This mask contains antioxidants and Vitamin C as some of its main ingredients and it smells really really good, apart from being so creamy and moisturizing. This coats the skin and makes it feel smooth, well-hydrated, and plump. This works best if used overnight and I must tell you, this yellow-toned moisture-rich cream is so addicting to use.


Overall, I feel like I could switch most of my favorite skincare products to this line. YTTP really makes clean skincare products that work great for all skin types, and since clean skincare seems to be the thing nowadays (which is really what we should all be going for hopefully), I believe you guys should really try something from this brand, if you haven’t already.

Farmacy The Mighties Kit Review

Hi There! You’ve probably heard about Farmacy skincare before, and you’ve probably seen their products at some aisles at Sephora. Well, if you’re looking for some real and natural farm to face skincare products, look no further and take a closer look at the products offered by this particular brand. A good way to get yourself acquainted with their products is to try their bestsellers in a mini version, like in this Farmacy The Mighties Kit ($45).


Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy


I’m no stranger to Farmacy products anymore since I’ve tried some of their stuff before, and my experience has been totally positive. There’s not a lot of “green” skincare products nowadays that truly deliver quality results, while not compromising on clean, safe, non-irritating, and cruelty-free ingredients and standards. I believe Farmacy is one of those skincare brands that you can rely on if you’re into nature-inspired skincare. Being said that, most of their products are either made with honey or with Echinacea GreenEnvy – a different kind of Echinacea breed that has potent healing powers and contains more antioxidants than the regular Echinacea plant.


The Mighties Kit contains two Farmacy products that I’ve tried before as samples: The Honey Potion Mask and the Honey Drop Moisturizer. I was gonna purchase them in their regular sizes but I wanted to see if there might be some other Farmacy products I might like and should try. This Mighties Kit (got this on sale during Sephora’s VIB event several weeks ago) seems like a really good kit to try some other Farmacy bestsellers. The other three products that are Included in this kit which I’ve never tried before are the following: a green makeup remover, a night balm infused with Echinacea GreenEnvy, and a sample of their Dew It All Eye Cream. Hmm, these products seem really intriguing…


Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer with Echinacea GreenEnvy


Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy (3.2 oz: $34) – This smells like something green, slightly herb-like and totally fresh like a slight blend of lime and a hint of bergamot. This Allure 2017 Best of Beauty Winner looks waxy on the outside but once you scoop it out, it’ll melt into the skin and remove all kinds of makeup without any problem. Kinda like Clinique’s Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, but with a much better scent. You’re probably gonna need a spatula whenever you use this, and a small pea-size amount is enough to get rid of all the makeup on your face.


Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer with Echinacea GreenEnvy (1.7 oz: $45) – This moisturizer smells like honey and it feels really light on the skin. I’ve had several samples of this before as well and I really like the way my skin feels after using this. It’s softening and for my skin type or even for those with combo skin, this is a perfect consistency as an everyday moisturizer. However, if you have dry skin, this may not be enough for you, and if you put a lot of this, it may pill. So that’s something to consider, and for some, they don’t really like the scent of this moisturizer since it’s kind of boring and odd. I definitely think that this product can be a hit or a miss for some, depending on a lot of factors like your skin type, the area where you live, and your scent preferences among other things.


Farmacy Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy


Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm with Echinacea GreenEnvy (1.7 oz: $48) – This balm turns into a jelly-oil consistency once applied on the skin. It has this light green scent that is mixed with several nourishing oils which makes for an aromatic experience. The feeling of applying this is weird because the balm really does feel like an oil on my hands and on my face, but it isn’t really that oily. It has that sort of dry oil effect, and even though it took a while for this product to be absorbed by my skin, it didn’t really stain my bed sheets and pillowcases. As someone with an oily skin type, I was afraid that this might cause my face to get even more oily and will cause some breakouts, but so far, I haven’t really noticed any untoward reactions. Even though I didn’t notice the firming effect, what I did notice is that this balm had moisturized some dry patches on my skin overnight.


Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy (4.1 oz: $56) – This is one of my most favorite Farmacy products ever. I’ve had several samples of this before and I will buy this in its large packaging soon. This is surely one of the best face masks I’ve ever tried and it feels so good the moment you apply it on the face. It has this ginger-honey scent that feels like a really thick jelly to the touch, and it spreads on the skin smoothly while it warms. You could feel your skin feeling revitalized by it. I like to massage this mask all over my face for about 15 minutes and right after washing it off, my face feels so soft, so smooth, and so renewed. It looks plumped, well-hydrated, glowy, almost like having glassy skin. I could even squeeze my whiteheads and blackheads off easily, it’s amazing.


Dew It All Total Eye Cream with Echinacea GreenEnvy


Dew It All Total Eye Cream with Echinacea GreenEnvy (0.5 oz: $38) – This eye cream is a surprise love for me. I’ve never tried this before and when I did, I was so amazed by how soft and smooth this cream feels. It isn’t thick and sticky, it’s just a rich smooth creamy blend that my undereye skin soaked up immediately. It had kept it hydrated for hours and hours and it goes well under concealer or any tinted undereye moisturizers. While there’s no way of knowing if this eye cream had reduced my dark circles, given that I only got a free small sachet of a sample inside the kit, I do love its nice clean scent and its hydrating effect on my undereyes.


Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer with Echinacea GreenEnvy


Bottom line. If you’re new to Farmacy products, I suggest that you try this Mighties Kit. There’s a lot to love in this kit and you will discover and like some other Farmacy products that you might normally pass by at any beauty and skincare counters. Personally, I love all of the stuff in this kit, and I’m not surprised why they’re considered bestsellers, because they really are. However, I have a special liking to the Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm, the Dew It All Total Eye Cream, and the Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Mask.


This Farmacy The Mighties Kit is currently available at Sephora. You can also purchase individual regular-sized Farmacy products at JCPenney.
