Sample Sunday is on two L'oreal's Youth Code products. I used these two samples on two different days. I wanted to try them back to back so I could compare them.
The Youth Code 'Serum Corrector' was exactly as stated; a serum. It has a smooth consistency that my skin drank right up. I had enough to work into the outer corners of my eyes. It even had a bit of a cooling sensation.
There wasn't a coupon with this card, however. And since the price on these two products is higher than what facial products used to cost at the drugstore, it would have been more enticing had there been a coupon. However, I found the serum to keep my skin moist for several hours. It wasn't a sticky feeling, just a plumped skin feeling.
Next I used the Day/Night Cream. This cream was thicker than I expected. Yet, when I applied it to my outer corners of my eyes, again my skin absorbed it readily. I stayed stingy with it to use some at bedtime. The cream, just like the serum, kept my skin feeling soft for many hours.
The Youth Code Serum Corrector promises fewer dark spots and more luminous skin in just 8 weeks. It states it will work on sun damage as well as post-acne marks. That's a bold statement to make and some of the newest tags on facial skincare seen at the drugstore.
The Youth Code Day/Night Cream claims to help the skin regenerate quicker. When the skin cells turn over faster, it will keep the skin looking healthy instead of sallowy or pasty. It also allows collagen to stay in that area longer than without any product used.Keep the collagen in the skin and you keep wrinkles at bay.
The Vanity recommends the Serum Corrector if you want to work on just the beginnings of dark spots on the face and plumping up the tissue around the eye area. And I, wholeheartedly, recommend creating a regimen for this the moment you see your skin getting discoloration. The quicker you act upon dark spots, the better your chances of keeping them at bay longer. Since I have normal to dry skin, I think that my skin more readily absorbs in some products. The Serum Corrector was no exception. I liked how my skin felt after applying this.
If you are just beginning to show signs of dry patches, tiny creases around your eyes and mouth, then Youth Code Day/Night Cream is a good place to start. I would recommend those with sensitive skin and highly oily skin to tread lightly with this one. It may be too greasy for those skin needs.
I don't see any need to use both of these unless one has super dry skin. And even then, I would use a completely different product rather than using two.
Do you use either of these L'oreal products?
