ybf Skincare Review and Giveaway *100*



 My mother is an amazing woman for many reasons.  She's a strong woman, she works hard as a Kindergarten Spanish Teacher and she's a loving Grandmother but she also has flawless skin!  If it wasn't for her head of silver hair she would look like she was in her early 40's.  I won't tell you her real age because she'd kill me but I can tell you she doesn't look even close because she's always taken very good care of her skin.  She is wrinkle free and her skin is as smooth as a baby's bottom.  To make sure my skin looks like that at her age I've got to do a few things.  First, I've got to quit smoking again, I started smoking cigarettes when Josh lost his job after I had quit for a few months. I know, I know, it was dumb! Second, I need to start eating a little healthier because if I am what I eat, I'm screwed! And last, I need to make sure I cleanse and moisturize my skin daily.  Now usually I just used my body wash or whatever soaps I had laying around to wash my face, until I learned just how dry that can make your skin.  Around that time I met a wonderful woman by the name of Kimberley and she showed me the wonderful world of YBF Skincare!






What is YBF Skincare?
According to their site, " Our entire path to building the YBF brand has been about being true to intent.  In 2004 we set out to create something spectacular, delivering genuine results to people who love the products and the experience.  For us, that experience means including a personal touch from us as much as it means offering the finest skincare products to deliver the results you want.  With help from wonderful and supportive people we've come to know, we're achieving our goal.  Daily we strive and are thankful for the opportunities that allow us to continue to grow and move forward.  We want Your Best Face Skincare to be what people think of first when asked, 'What's your favorite skincare brand?'"
YBF is run by friends Kimberley and Darrell who came together at coffee shops to discuss running a business together.  But because life always has to throw us a curve ball every now and again, Darrell found himself staying in Minnesota with work and Kimberley ended up having to come down to Florida and they had to put their plans on hold.  That is until 2004 when YBF was born.  Since then it has taken off like a firestorm and has become very popular.  
YBF features products for all parts of your face including items to hydrate and moisturize, control, balance and many other products to take care of other stubborn issues.  


What Do I think of YBF?
Let's just say they don't call it Your Best Face for nothin'!  I'm going to go through product by product and tell ya what I think of each.
Prep:  "Prep is YBF's creamy microdermabrasion treatment that infuses skin with botanicals that brighten and soothe, vitamins and antioxidants that heal and protect, and peptides that smooth existing wrinkles and help prevent new ones."  I have always had problems with stubborn pimples on my forehead that stuck with me from the time I hit puberty at age 10 until now at age 25.  I've tried all of the over the counter treatments my parents bought me and nothing ever took care of them.  They never turned into acne so I never gave them too much thought until I got older and realized they were still around.  When I started using Prep I noticed within 2 uses, my forehead was dramatically clearer.  I couldn't believe the difference and to be completely honest, I didn't expect this much of a difference either!  My skin feels smooth and silky after I use Prep and I just absolutely love it!
Hydrate B Concentrate: "Increases natural hydration and protects skin with vitamins B5, B3 and DMAE.  Hydrate & Rejuvenate your skin with the perfect pretreatment."  "Hydrate B Concentrate attracts and draws moisture deeper into the skin, helping active ingredients better penetrate, stay effective longer and perform better for skin that feels supple and smooth."  I found that Hydrate B Concentrate is a great moisturizer to use with Prep.  It really made my skin hydrated right after using the microdermabrasion cream and my skin felt so soft, I just couldn't believe it!  One thing I love about this stuff is a tiny bit goes a long way.  So it lasts forever.  I can literally put a drop on my finger and completely moisturize almost half my face. 




Balance: "Balance is anti-aging skin care that also helps your skin look healthy, feel matte and be calm. Balance fights against new breakouts as well as helps to decrease the duration and damage of existing breakouts."  Balance was another key factor in my clear skin.  It went on very smooth and again I was surprised at how quickly my skin cleared up!  I noticed a difference in just days!  I have sensitive skin and these products were great for my sensitive skin, though it is recommended that Prep is not to be used on people with extra sensitive skin.  




Refresh: "Refresh is a moisturizing, highly refreshing eye cream designed for everyday maintenance. Refresh eye cream contains the antioxidants idebenone, spin trap, L-carnosine and more, plus peptides to reduce existing wrinkles and help avoid new ones. Refresh also restores elasticity and may help diminish the appearance of dark circles.that different!  The bags were completely gone and my eyes looked refreshed even though I still had gone without sleep.  YBF has really got it right with their products because I am amazed at the results every single time I use them!




So where can you go to purchase YBF?
I don't know how to express how highly I recommend this skincare line to you!  This is the only skincare line I will ever use, ever again! Yes, they are that good! You definitely get what you pay for and so much more. So, if you're dying to try out Your Best Face skincare for yourself (and I don't blame you if you are!) you can find them at their retailer,The Skin Care Shop and if you live in the Sheperdstown WV area you can visit their store!  For directions just visit their site!
