L’Oreal added the Youth Code products to their skincare lineup a few months back. I was sent the Youth Code Serum, and honestly couldn’t tell you who sent it to me – nothing was included in the package, so I’m not sure if it was PR or the company directly. Either way, I should have talked about this new line some time ago.
A little history on this first – L’Oreal has 10 years of gene research in creating this product. What they learned from their research is that young and older skin react differently to a number of aggressors such as UV rays, pollution and other free radicals. I think we can all agree on that, and have heard this before. But, what they did with this knowledge is create what they call Gen Activ Technology, which is a proprietary combination of ingredients that increases regenerating efficacy of your daily skincare. It basically encourages your skin to act younger.
As I’ve said many times before – I do not have a degree in chemistry or other sciences. I only know if something works by testing it on my skin. I also know everyone skin is at different stages of aging depending on a persons age and other environmental and health factors. But, I also love that fact that there are more quality options for women and men with drugstore brands. I feel that this Youth Code Serum is a wonderful option in skincare at a great price – nothing is over $30 in this line.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the Youth Code Serum. The first thing I noticed is how clear it made my skin. I test many products and some can really irritate my skin. All my redness and irritation was gone in a couple of days. Over time my few “age spots” seemed lighter too. As I said – this made my skin clearer. This has a slight clean fragrance to it that wasn’t irritating to me and disappeared quite quickly. The serum soaks in quickly and is not greasy or tacky in any way. The bottle is a pump that you need to turn the top to get it to pump – which is an automatic protector against spills, which makes it great for travel.
Youth Code is available in stores now and I am encouraged by the results of this serum. I have not tried the other pieces to this line – the daytime moisturizer with SPF, the night cream or the eye cream, but if they are anything like the serum I’m guessing they are great as well.
Sounds good to me!
This is on my “try next” list. Thanks for the review.
I hope you will like it. Let me know after you’ve tried it.
I’ve been using it for about 3 weeks now and I’m really amazed at what it has did in such a short time, the only thing I can say is that it did make my skin more “youthful looking”. I saw it advertised on TV and thought I’d give it a try and I’ll certainly buy another when this one is gone! It does soak in right away and isn’t greasy at all! I’ll be 60 in about a week and I’m so glad I found this product!
Just bought it this weekend and love the product. Was dismayed when I found a lot of negative reaction to this on the web. Then I realized that most of the “doesn’t work” comments are in the 30 year old range. I’m 46 and have had acne my whole life. Could be this isn’t a one size fits all kind of thing. Would recommend it – to someone my age or older.
omg, Am using the new youthcode cleansing pad and the youthcode serum intense. I am simply stunned at the results. You might think I just had a few wrinkles and your product toned them down.
I AM 69 YEARS OLD, but thanks to your product I LOOK 50! I can’t thank you enough for YOUTHCODE. You have a customer for life.
Thanks for the great comment I just turned 40 and suddenly my skin looks age 50! I guess due to sun damage and smoking. I have quit both and now I’m dealing with the destuction. I’m on my way to get the Youth Code Serum right now!
I hope you love it – I really do!
I’ve been using this product for about 3 years now. Its awesome. The serum completely erased my lines between my brows and it’s definitely toned and tightened. I’m about to be 42 and I’ve added other L’Oreal Creme’s to my regimine including the Collagen day/night cream and now (for some signs is sagging jowls) the age perfect hydra. Nutrition day/night cream. Love love love L’Oreal products!!
You should find many salons that offer tanning
service. There are compromises, including acoustic panels designed to look like pieces of art, and
using things such as wall-hanging rugs can be surprisingly effective, but it remains the case
that the ideal solution acoustically is not the ideal solution aesthetically.
If I ever found a product that was sticky or smelly I would never use it again, but then I started
hearing more and more about another issue – dangerous personal care
products so I started researching.
