Test driving Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator! Contest!

What does one say when one is asked to try out a fancy new skin care line for a month and report on the results? Duh! Yes of course! So when Yves Saint Laurent asked me to use their Forever Youth Liberator as my skincare regimen for one month to discover the wonders firsthand of Glycobiology and the dramatic results in the rejuvenation of my skin there was really no debate on whether I would do it or not!

Curious about what the heck Glycobiology is and what it has to do with skin aging - me too! Basically it has to with Glycans which are complex saccharide chains that are naturally present in our body and help communication between cells to ensure skin regeneration. And while they are active in young skin, over time the number of glycans diminishes hindering the skin's regeneration process. This leads to wrinkles, loss of tone and a dull complexion.

Forever Youth Liberator contains Glycanacif - a patented complex of 3 glycans acting like keys to liberate the skin's youthful appearance which: on the cell surface send youth messages from cell to cell; inside the cell boost cell regeneration; and between the cells strengthen skin structure.

In one month I should expect to see radiance, anti-wrinkle lift as well as plumping... we shall see.

The products I am trying are: Forever Youth Liberator Serum, SPF 15 Day Cream and Eye Cream. I will be reporting in each week with my results - I have been using the products for a week already but a week isn't really enough time to see anything yet so I thought I would fill you in on the wonders of Glycobiology this week and next week tell you more about the products and how I'm finding them.

And of course before agreeing to be a YSL guinea pig, we wanted to know what was in it for our readers - and as it turns out - a set of the very same products that we are trying so you can do your very own experiment at home! If you've been looking to liberate your own youth than read on...

  13. Of course the big beef I have with aging is wrinkles - nobody wants those. Just discovered the 11's on my forehead :(
    But the suckiest thing? Is KNOWING there is no escape... well death is technically an escape but that would REALLY SUCK!
    Only thing to look forward to is the new time/age fighting products coming down the line.

    What I find the worse is not being able to do all that I set out to do in one day like I once did. At one time, I didn't keep an agenda. Now, the few plans never can done on time... and sometimes, not at all.
