Delving into skincare can be scary when you see acronyms, capitalizations and percentages on the packaging. But really, finding the best products for you comes down to your own skincare needs and concerns.
And when oily skin, fine lines, uneven texture and wrinkles are your enemy, this Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser can be a big help.
What’s so impressive about this cleanser — besides its 114,000 loves at Sephora — are its powerful antioxidants. The Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser includes greens like kale, spinach and green tea.
Kale has a bunch of phytonutrients — or compounds produced by plants, like vitamins C, E and K. All of those nutrients within kale help to give your skin a glowing effect and strengthen the skin’s barrier. The cleanser also uses spinach to help soothe the skin with its cooling effects. Plus, green tea contains anti-inflammatory properties for acne. With all these greens, it’s no wonder why it’s a superfood cleanser.
But honestly, you want to know what this baby really does and why more than 2,000 people have left reviews on Sephora? The cleanser is like a green juice straight to your skin while also taking off makeup and preventing build-up in your pores.
Plus, there’s hardly any fragrance (other than the combination of the ingredients) and still keeps your skin’s pH balance in check. The sulfate and alcohol-free cleanser has been a 2018 winner of GQ Magazine’s Best Stuff Award and it’s listed under Clean at Sephora, which includes products free of ingredients with sulfates, parabens, formaldehydes, phthalates, and mineral oil.
There are a plethora of positive reviews, like this one customer who said it left their skin glowing and soft.
“YESSSSS!!! I actually see a difference in the softness and the brightness in my skin when I use this,” they wrote. “I use it with my Clarisonic and it bubbles up nicely and doesn’t make my skin feel tight and dry.”
Another customer even called the product their holy grail.
“This product is absolutely amazing. I would go as far as to say a new holy grail item for me,” they wrote. “This has cleared up a lot of discoloration and bumps that I get on my cheeks, while not making my skin extra oily in problem areas.”
The cleanser, however, is said to be powerful — sometimes to a detriment. There are some customers like this one with dry to normal and sensitive skin who said the cleanser made them break out. You should always be sure to patch test on your arm first for that exact reason.
“I heard and read so many glowing reviews of this cleanser,” they said. “It’s pleasant to use, but it was not beneficial for my normal-to-dry, sensitive skin. Tried it for five days, and developed several blemishes and dry patches.”
If you don’t want to dive in face-first into the 8-ounce cleanser, you can also shop the 2-ounce cleanser for $10 to try out first. Either way, this cleanser is worth trying to solve those oily problem areas.
