The Tuesday Tester……………YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation & Youth Liberating Serum
Hope your all feeling fab. I went into Boots a couple of weeks ago and checked out the offers on the points machine; YSL had an offer of a free 7 day trial of both their Teint Touche Éclat foundation and Forever Youth Liberator Serum and i was very interested in the serum so i wanted to give it a go.
YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation
I had never really been interested in the Touche Éclat foundation before because i had ready plenty of reviews stating that if you have blemished skin then forget it, it didn’t offer enough coverage. As i was given a free sample, i thought at least give it a go.
This is a pretty nice foundation. The coverage is light but can easily be built up. The SA had done a great match for my skin tone and the shade i got was BR30. The foundation did not at any point settle into my fine lines and it had a lovely luminosity about it, setting to a semi-matte finish. It also had a mild floral fragrance, which was very pleasant.
The one thing i noticed about it was, that i applied it at 8am and by lunchtime, it had completely disappeared off my t-zone and especially around my mouth area. I applied it again to even my skin out; later on, removed my face makeup at 7pm. Sadly, most of the foundation on my whole face had completely disappeared. The following day, it seemed to stay on a bit longer than the first time i applied it, even though it still struggled down the t zone a bit.
I don’t think this is going to be any good for me, especially in the summer when i have a very oily t-zone then and it has already wore off so quickly now; in winter.
This may be a great foundation for people with lines and dull, dry skin; however, no good for anyone with oily or blemished skin.
The plus point is there are many shades available; is lovely when first applied but has no staying power.
YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum
I also had two sachets of the serum in my little pack. This is for 7 days use. It’s going to be a bit harder to review this because you have to use skin care products for at least 30 days to see the real benefits.
Initially, i noticed that i had to use a good amount of the sachet just to cover my face.It does have a nice light texture to it, which spreads fairly easily, settling into skin very quickly. I was assured by the SA that this really does work. It is supposed to be applied twice daily and has SPF15.
The product i normally use and love is, Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Recovery complex and i consider this my holy grail product for fine lines and anything else needs to be pretty special to out do it.
Well, i am impressed with the results, which were almost immediate. My fine lines almost disappeared and my skin felt really smooth and soft. The following evening i used it again and it gave fantastic results. If it’s this good after two uses, how good is your skin going to be within a months use?!
The two sachets only lasted three days and not seven because the amount i had to use to cover my face was quite substantial. The Estée Lauder one covers more area with a smaller amount and as a result, i will be sticking with it and not moving on to the YSL.
Great instant results with reduction of fine lines. It took a good pea sized amount to cover my face and a 30ml bottle costs £61.00. If you can afford it, then i highly recommend it, but expect to repurchase within 6 months.
Have you tried any of these products? What did you think? Have a great week everyone and i will see you all soon 😉
