No stranger to some of the most luxurious face oils ever bottled, I am still processing how the Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil is casually $44 at Sephora. A fan of the superfood fueled line up, I have been devoted to the Antioxidant Cleanser since the brand’s launch a few years ago. Soon after, the soft drying clay mask became a vanity staple. The face oil, however, takes my YTTP passion for this green brand to a whole new level.
A lighter oil blend, Hydrate & Glow is a fusion of Sunflower, Jojoba, Prickly Pear, Goji, Acai, and Maqui Oils, among them. Combined with Moringa Seed Extract, Vitamins C and E, the antioxidant powerhouse provides superb protection against free radicals as well as strengthening, rejuvenating, firming, and brightening properties. Mega hydration is a default perk.
Those already familiar with various facial oils will immediately notice how silky the YTTP Superberry applies. Thinner than most, but by no means watery, the golden liquid sinks into the skin in seconds and leaves behind a hint of glow. Zero slip or shine. The juicy fruity aroma is all natural (a very pleasant surprise). If your skin hovers toward the dry end of the spectrum, you can probably use this during the day. Since my combination complexion needs something oil-free’ish in the warm weather, I layer it over a serum de nuit or my Retinol before bed.
Whether you’ve been curious about oils, scared of them, or unimpressed with some of the more affordable options out there, I highly recommend your giving the Youth To The People Superberry brew a try. Ultra nourishing and incredibly user friendly, this traceless oil blend illuminates dull skin on contact. For those who shy away from oils because of their texture, pat a few drops onto a damp face (or cocktail it with a pump of Hyaluronic Acid serum) and enjoy the quick absorption.
While frolicking around in Arizona’s desert last week, I forgot to bring my hair leave-in, so I tried half a dropper of Hydrate & Glow in my wet hair before towel drying. It worked perfectly and helped me instantly achieve the coveted ‘multi-tasker’ status. I’m like *literally* obsessed.
