When I was contacted by Your Best Face Skincare, an independent , unisex line, that was founded in 2004 by partners Darrell Owens and Kimberly Fristed, my first response was, "do you have products that address the lip area"?. "We most certainly do", was the reply...ahhhh! Music to my
I didn't know anything about YBF Skincare, so I did a little research. YBF is successfully growing their collection and fan base, by offering products that use the most effective anti-oxidants, peptides, vitamins and botanicals. To remain cost effective, the products are highly concentrated. Their goal is to make getting great results a joyful experience, so textures and smells are pleasant and easily absorbed. The founders are conscientious about the power of Social Media and welcome customer feedback via Facebook and Twitter.
It all sounded positive to me and with a nod to the first paragraph, I quickly forgot all about it.
Last week, I reviewed a foundation find from By Terry. I was so besotted with their famed lip treatment Baume de Rose, that I went back to visit it. I hadn't noticed that in addition to the glorious pot, it was also available in a wand. I've never stalked a cosmetic counter before, but there I was. I chatted for awhile with the associates who all seemed passionate about By Terry too. I left with two hefty samples before coating my lips with Baume de Rose for the road.
When I arrived home, their was a goodie package from YBF Skincare, filled with samples, plus a full size "define" and "quench", both specifically formulated for the lip area. It felt fateful that I hadn't pulled the purchase trigger on Baume de Rose...maybe better things lie ahead...in fact, they did.
I have the beauty attention span of a gnat, so in a nano, it was off with the new and on with the new new. Define, ($70 .5oz) is an anti-age cream that, "addresses unique lip area needs, such as wrinkles, suppleness, brightness and fullness. It instantly soothes and provides peptides to fill lips and smooth lines. Anti-oxidants protect lips and help with healing, while brighteners enhance skin's color over time. You will notice more defined, fuller, youthful looking lips. Who can resist that"?
Quench, ($15 .15oz.) is a "velvety smooth lip treatment that keeps your lips naturally full, bright and youthful looking. Quench seals in moisture and prevents future damage from stress and environmental factors.
Who knows??? With a little luck define and quench will keep my lips lush and blogging will keep my piston's firing.
