In one corner, we have adaptogens in formulas, that give your skin the deep moisture it needs. In the other, we have superfoods in formulas, that lightly hydrate your skin while bringing leafy greens to your top shelf. When we stack up two custom Youth To The People blends, how do they compare?
AT A GLANCE
YTTP's Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream is backed by our proprietary adaptogen blend. According to Mercedes Taylor, YTTP's Product Innovation Manager, adaptogens like ashwagandha, Rhodiola, and fermented reishi are in formulas that help your skin better protect itself from stress. If your living environment exposes you to a lot of sun or wind, the Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream will replenish your skin's hydration, making it less likely to be affected by environmental stressors. Adaptogens aside, the Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream's fragrance-free formula is packed with an ultra-moisturising trio - squalane, jojoba, and shea butter - for long-lasting hydration without clogged pores. With a soothing cream texture, it works well for all skin types and is best for skin that is dry, reactive, or sensitive.
But if you're in search of lighter hydration, look no further than YTTP's Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream. Powered by a custom Superfood blend, this daily moisturiser smells more like a green juice fresh out of the blender. Organic supergreens - kale, alfalfa, spinach, chamomile, and green tea - are incorporated into a formula to reduce signs of redness, fatigue and aging in your skin through hydration. Packed with vitamin C, E, K, and hyaluronic acid, the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream helps your skin build a more hydrated moisture barrier. Though good for all skin types, its lightweight, gel cream texture makes it an ideal option for combination or oily skin types. If your skin looks tired, then Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream just might be your player.
TIPS FOR USE
If adaptogens are more your speed, apply your Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream to clean skin in the morning and at night. You can use it as part of a routine (like in between the 15% Vitamin C + Caffeine Energy Serum and the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil) or on its own on freshly-cleansed skin. The Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream is fragrance-free, non-irritating, and infused with adaptogens like ashwagandha.
If you love a beat face, the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream will seamlessly transition you from your skincare routine to your makeup routine. A dime-sized amount smooths quickly into your skin, moisturising and priming it for makeup application. For an extra boost of moisture, try mixing a bit of Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream with your favourite foundation.
Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream is your player if you're often exposed to harsh sun or wind, prefer a fragrance-free formula, or have dry, reactive, or sensitive skin.
If you're looking for a makeup-priming, fatigue-reducing, lightweight gel cream - or if you have combination or oily skin - the Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream is in your corner.
