As it’s been stated time and time again, it is never too early to start with preserving your skin’s youth. Anti-aging products aren’t only for a specific age group. You can start young in preserving your skin from loss of firmness and elasticity before it starts happening. I’m highlighting one specific product from AMOREPACIFIC that has been my main go-to moisturizer over the past two months.
AMOREPACIFIC is a luxury Korean brand and well worth it investment. Their Youth Revolution Radiance Crème and Masque that launched earlier this year has been my holy grail of moisturizers since the very first use. It feels luxurious to use and you start redeeming all the skin loving benefits right away. This daily rich moisturizing cream helps nourish the skin, as well as improving the skin tone. It also goes on to help with dark spots as well as the anti-aging properties helping improve wrinkles and fine lines. This product is a cream and a mask all in one (or crème and masque if you will). It is safe to use on all skin types, from dry all the way to oily. I consider my skin to be combination, but mostly dehydrated.
How to Use the Youth Revolution Radiance Crème and Masque
For use, you can use it as either a daily moisturizer in the morning and at night. I usually use this as the last step in my nighttime skin care routine with a generally generous layer. I’ve used it in the mornings sometimes for extra hydration. I took this rather large container on my honeymoon to Europe with me, even with much smaller and much more travel-friendly options available. I trusted this product so much that I could not part with it for half a month. Sure, I could have scooped out some of it into a smaller container, but I didn’t think that far ahead.
You can also use it as an overnight mask by applying a much thicker layer to the skin to give your skin more of the moisturizing and restorative properties overnight. You just simply wash it off in the morning before starting your morning skincare routine. I’m not crazy about leaving too thick of a product on my skin overnight and having it get on my pillowcases, so I usually stick to the main moisturizer application.
Breaking It Down
Let’s get to the breakdown of the cream product now. As stated, it is a cream and a thicker one at that. They describe it as a “sherbet-like texture” and I could see this to be true. To be a moisturizer and mask in one, it is no doubt a thick formulation. If can apply it lightly still if needed, but it is far from a gel formula if that is what you are looking for.
AMOREPACIFIC as a brand is very passionate about the ingredients they use. They use a lot of green tea in their products to maximize the benefits of the green tea plant. It helps soothe and protect the skin from all the harmful qualities in the air around us. The whole movement in the beauty world towards anti-pollution benefits in products is definitely captured with this brand and this product. There are many environmental factors that have negative impacts on our skin and we are now seeing a lot more products that help prevent those factors from affecting our skin as much as they normally would.
Another main key ingredient in this product, and found throughout the Youth Revolution range from AMOREPACIFIC, is White Peony. This antioxidant helps brighten your skin and continues to purify the skin as well. This product is free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates, and is thankfully cruelty-free.
Wedding Day Skin Prep
I started using this AMOREPACIFIC product just over a month before my wedding and my skin actually had a really good month, which is rare. Considering the amount of stress I was under, my skin should have had so many breakouts, but it stayed fairly calm throughout the time leading up to the big day. I know it was likely a combination of products I was using, but this was one of the big changes I made in the most recent months.
I will continue to use every bit of this product up. It definitely has a luxurious price point, but I would definitely consider repurchasing this one once I run out. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to test out this product as it was gifted to me. But as always, all opinions are my own. Check back soon for more beauty recommendations!
