We’re always excited about new releases here at Care to Beauty, but it’s been a while since we’ve been as excited for a brand as we are for YOUTH LAB. This eye-catching Greek brand (one of our team members keeps referencing its “post-it colors”) has recently arrived in our offices and we’ve been struck by its unpretentious simplicity.
YOUTH LAB wants to unscramble your beauty routine. Are you ready to take the leap?
YOUTH LAB boosts your skin’s metabolism
YOUTH LAB was born out of the collaboration between multiple Greek experts acclaimed in the field of dermocosmetics. This combined expertise is what allows the brand to develop advanced, no-frills formulas that identify and respond to the skin’s actual needs. The brand’s aim is to boost the skin’s own metabolism, which tends to deteriorate with age and exposure to environmental hazards, to restore a healthy and youthful look.
To quote the experts behind the brand, “each year more and more biological functions move into the slow lane“. In other words, the skin begins to lose the ability to maintain its fresh appearance. This translates into dullness, imperfections, and those dreaded fine lines and wrinkles.
YOUTH LAB products are designed to target this dynamic: each product will boost a specific metabolic function, which will, in turn, help you correct whatever imperfection you’re struggling with.
YOUTH LAB handpicks only the most effective ingredients
Whereas other brands prioritize the origin and status of its ingredients, YOUTH LAB prioritizes their effectiveness and safety. As a result, YOUTH LAB products are dermatologically tested, rich in bio-compatible active ingredients, and free of gluten, parabens, SLS/SLE, petrolatum, and ingredients of animal origin. On top of all this, YOUTH LAB is also cruelty-free, making it a late addition to our growing list of eco-friendly brands!
YOUTH LAB streamlines your beauty routine
YOUTH LAB is all about simple and effective skincare rituals. Why should you need to apply 15 different products when 5 truly effective ones should give you the same benefits? This quality-over-quantity mindset is clearly visible in the brand’s minimal catalog, which includes a handful of cleansing and moisturizing options, a single anti-aging line, a sunscreen range, and a couple of specific body care products. This small (but mighty) range should respond to all your needs: let us show you how!
As far as cleansing goes, the brand’s bestselling product is the simply named Daily Cleanser, a rich foaming gel that purifies the skin without harming the hydrolipidic film. Suitable for the face and eyes, this gentle gel removes make-up, impurities, and excess oil. The product is available in two versions: one for normal/dry skin, and one for oily skin. What’s yours?
After cleansing comes hydration: YOUTH LAB offers a few options, the most popular of which is the YOUTH LAB CC Complete Cream SPF30. This multi-functional tinted cream (which is also available in normal/dry and oily skin versions), covers imperfections and offers a natural and flawless finish to the skin. As a complement, you’re welcome to use YOUTH LAB CC Complete Cream for Eyes, a new-technology eye cream that revitalizes the eye contour area–which is often the first area of the face to “tell” on how tired you are.
3. Anti-aging care
Looking for specific anti-aging skincare? YOUTH LAB has a full routine of “aging erasure” products at your disposal, in the form of a Restoring Serum, two face creams (the Wrinkles Erasure Cream SPF10 for the first signs of aging, and the Re-Activating Youth Cream for mature skin), and a Wrinkles Erasure Cream for Eyes.
These products restore and preserve the youth of the skin through advanced formulas that enhance and activate the skin’s natural biological functions. Moreover, this anti-aging range employs the exclusive Liquid Crystal Technology, which ensures deeper penetration and a gradual release of the active ingredients in the skin.
Last, but not least, YOUTH LAB suggests you apply sunscreen as the final step of your skincare routine. (So do we, by the way: take a look at some of our team’s favorite sunscreen products here!)
Here, as in previous categories, the options are simple: YOUTH LAB proposes the Daily Sunscreen Cream SPF50 for normal/dry skin, and the Daily Sunscreen Gel Cream SPF50 for oily skin. There’s also a third option, in the form of a tinted Oil Free Compact Cream available in two colors: medium and dark.
Finally, there’s one of the brand’s most creatively named products: the YOUTH LAB Body Guard SPF30, a spray-on sunscreen suitable for both the face and body. Our team members who have tried it swear by its light formula, which suits all skin types without leaving a greasy film over the skin and body hair. If you know any men who use leg hair as an excuse not to wear sunscreen, buy them this product: it’s use to change their mind!
