A few weeks ago I attended the launch of L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Skincare Collection and learned a bit about the new line geared for those of us who want to combat the signs of aging, but don't want to pay an arm and a leg if we don't have to.
Backed by 10 years of gene research that’s internationally patented, L’Oréal Paris is now offering women what they claim is the most scientifically advanced topical anti-aging treatment…available at your local drugstore! The L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Skincare Collection includes four new products that are specially formulated with the latest development in gene science, GenActiv TECHNOLOGY™, clinically proven to energize the repair gene expression, enhance the skin’s capacity for recovery faster after aggressions and unveil younger-acting skin. Upon using the L’Oréal Paris Youth Code products skin will immediately look more luminous, feel silky smooth and deeply hydrated; with continued use the signs of aging will visibly diminish.
With age and continued exposure to environmental stressors, the skin regenerates less quickly. Signs of aging including sagging features, laugh lines, dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear and overall skin looks lack-luster. The L'Oréal Paris Youth Code Skincare Collection is infused with the breakthrough GenActiv TECHNOLOGY™ that is specially formulated with Biolysat, Adenosine and enhanced with peptides that help make the skin act faster and younger. Biolysat, known as a good bacteria, works to activate the repair gene; it acts at the epidermis level and tells the genes to act faster in the recovery process. Adenosine, a molecule that naturally exists in skin’s DNA and is essential to proper cell functioning acts as an anti-wrinkle ingredient; it stimulates DNA and protein synthesis while producing collagen. The powerful combination of these ingredients leaves skin feeling luminous and looking younger.
The L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Skincare Collection includes the following four products:
L’ORÉAL PARIS YOUTH CODE SERUM INTENSE 1.0 fl oz, $24.99
L’ORÉAL PARIS YOUTH CODE SPF 30 DAY LOTION 1.7 fl oz $24.99
L’ORÉAL PARIS YOUTH CODE DAY / NIGHT CREAM 1.6 fl oz $24.99
L’ORÉAL PARIS YOUTH CODE EYE CREAM 0.5 fl oz $24.99
Or try the L’ORÉAL PARIS YOUTH CODE CLINICAL STRENGTH STARTER KIT which contains small bottles of the above for $34.99 (great for travel)
After trying all of the products I can tell you I am hooked on the serum which is as good as some $200 versions I have tried. I have been applying it twice daily to my face and neck for 2 weeks and already see a more even skintone, luminosity and my skin is perfectly hydrated. Apparently the three-dimensional polymer has a unique ability to attract moisture and form a barrier over the skin to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles in addition to keeping the skin radiant and hydrated. My skin is
velvety soft and my makeup is applying better and have noticed I need less.
I am also loving the eye cream's emollient-rich formula. It is infused with moisturizing honey, caffeine to reduce under eye puffiness and light-diffusing micro-pearls to illuminate the eye area. It is fragrance-free and non-greasy so I have been using it twice a day as well and applying eye-makeup over it is not a problem (many eye creams I have tried do not work under makeup). Hey, I say if you don't have to spend a million bucks on excellent skincare, why should you?
L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Skincare Collection is available at mass and drug retailers.
