Brand Review: Youth to the People

nakiacheyenne
Hey dudes! Today I’m doing something a little different, by reviewing a BRAND instead of a bunch of products. I wanted to talk about a few key points that this brand values, as well as why I support them and keep buying their products. Keep reading to find out more! PS — this is not sponsored or paid, and none of my YTTP products were gifted by the brand. We’ve never worked together, but I do really enjoy them. You can find most of this info on their website, but I wanted to pull out a few talking points that I find important. When Greg & Joe founded YTTP, they had help from their grandmother Eva & their Aunt Lisa, as well as Greg’s mom, Lisa. Women have always been important to their growth! Youth to the People has always been about the community, supporting non-profits and activists. They work towards inclusion and social change, and often challenge the “status quo.” They work to reduce their carbon footprint and also support young artists in communities! Ethos: — skincare for all, meaning all genders, all skin types, and all people! — consciously sourced ingredients, all made in California and paired with vegan actives — conscious consumption: leaving the world better than you found it — vegan and cruelty free: animals are not ingredients! Sustainability: — glass packaging means it won’t leech chemicals into the product like plastic can, and it can be recycled and reused way more times than plastic! — sustainable formulas that are safe for the environment, even after they are washed down the drain. They always feature diverse groups of people, including ethnicity and age variants, on their website and social media. During the current Covid-19 crisis, they are making appropriate comments online and supporting healthcare and frontline workers. Their products are consistently fantastic. I have used the cleanser, toner, both moisturizers, the oil, and the dream mask. All of them hold up as some of the greatest products I’ve tried, and I am always excited for new launches. The adaptogen cream is rich and soothing, and hydrating like their adaptogen mist. The mist is the perfect pick me up for any time of day! And the dream mask is, well, dreamy. It plumps my skin overnight and doesn’t leave me greasy. The kombucha toner is my holy grail exfoliant as of now, and I don’t see that changing soon. The cleanser is a staple I haven’t had in my routines in a while (I do own a back up) as well as the kale moisturizer. Sometimes I just like trying out new brands! If you haven’t tried anything from YTTP, I suggest you pick up some minis or a kit from their website. They’re truly a remarkable brand, and supporting them = supporting tons of organizations that help marginalized communities and people in need. 5/5 would recommend this brand to everyone!

Product Mentioned
Superfood SuperYES! 🌿
Talk about a refreshing cleanser! There are so few cleansers on the market that are actually full of ingredients I love and smell good! The scent is so light, crisp, and refreshing it’s like giving your face a salad! The product is a gel that creates a light foam as its lathered and leaves skin feeling fresh and smooth. I have tried other YTTP products and this is now tied with my other number one favorite, the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi which I use daily. (Special thanks to Cherie for sending me a jar and getting me hooked!) YTTP’s website claims: 🌿Benefits: 🍃Kale: This leafy veg is a must-have for more than just your morning juice. It's rich in skin-loving phytonutrients and vitamins C, E and K. 🍃Spinach: A lightweight skin-soother that boasts a high natural moisture content and cooling properties. 🍃Green Tea: An anti-inflammatory oil packed with essential fatty acids. 🌿Claims: 100% Vegan ingredients Cold-pressed extracts Recyclable packaging Made in USA No animal testing No parabens No phthalates No sulfates The full ingredient list totally passes the checklist on harsh chemical free but it does have added perfume which can be a no-go for some people, especially with sensitive skin. Overall I loved it! Sound off below if you have tried it and don’t like it or are an every day user!! Retails for $36 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser #CherieCreator

Daytime Routine
Recently I’ve gone through a lot of products and emptied a couple favourites, so I’ve changed up some products in my routine and thought I would do an updated day time routine. My first step is always cleansing, I haven’t gone through my comfort zone - comfort zone Essential Cleansing Milk but I’m pretty close to done, over half way, but it should last me at least another month. Next I spray my face with the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha and immediately put on the Dr Dennis Gross - Stress Rescue Super Serum with Niacinamide (📍). I’ve only been using this Youth to the People spay for a month, but I’ve already seen it make a huge difference in my glowiness and hydration through the day. The serum has also improved my skin a lot as my skin is sensitive to vitamin c, this has the brightening (niacinamide) and the antioxidant protection (goji fruit) that a vitamin c serum would have, without the irritation. Next I put on my The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG (📍) eye cream/serum, this helps to de puff my under eyes in the morning. My last three steps are to moisturizer with the CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Instant Brightening Moisturizer (📍), apply my current SPF which is the THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream and moisturizer my lips with the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom . I also want to start a new system in my posts, products with a 📍behind it on my posts, I received for free, as I’m trying to be more conscious of that. I’ve gone back on past posts and utilized this system. Thanks for reading! 📍= product was sent to me for free

Current night routine 🌙
I wanted to share my current night routine for my skin, starting with when I shower, because it's really been working for me: 1. In the shower, I use a half pump of YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser to tighten pores, get rid of any gunk on my face, and to brighten. 2. After I'm done showering, my blood pressure tends to go up because of circulation improving, so I get in my pajamas and apply Glossier. - Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum to calm any redness. Then I brush my teeth. 3. Next, I spray a little bit of Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray all over and roll my face using my SEPHORA COLLECTION - Rose Quartz Facial Roller 4. I roll my face using the wide end, starting with my left cheekbone and go to the jawline while going in lines/diagonals on my cheeks. Then I do my forehead by going horizontally - the top first and moving down, focusing on my brow bones (bc of sinuses, same with cheekbones and undereyes), next is the right cheek same as the left, then chin, sides of nose & undereyes w/ small end, and I finish by going in lines like a fern - but the branches/stems, not the little leaves. starting in one spot, going out, and coming back but going to different spots each time until I get that area covered - I make 5 lines on both cheeks and forehead using this method. It's difficult to describe tbh - center between my eyes / middle of brow, for cheeks its by my ear opening) 5. After my face is all cooled off, I put on a dime-sized amount of either Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream or Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream and lather it all over onto my face and neck. 6. Don't forget your lips! I use either my birthday, coconut, or my recent fave - the fig Glossier. - Balm Dotcom 7. The last step is to spray some more of my Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray but I also have two other sprays - YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandhaand TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Thx for reading ! 😊

Lit From Within Glowwww✨😍
I recently started using these 4 products for almost 2 weeks now & I’m never turning back!!! •YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream •YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil •YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask •Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid I have never had such a consistent glow to my skin since starting these! I get complimented daily! I love these products so much. The two Youth To The People creams absorb so quickly & don’t leave it feeling like you have all this junk on your face either. My previous moisturizer would always pill up once I went to put anything else on my face & these don’t do that! The Glossier serum is also extremely light & doesn’t clog pores which is something I was worried about initially. It comes out in this pinkish color but it doesn’t turn your skin any other, it just gives you a dewy look. & the Youth To The People serum is amazing of course! It literally gives me this glow like no other! A little bit goes a very long way, as with most of their products. Now I just need to clear up the little bit of texture I have left in my chin! I blame it on the fact that I went out quite a bit the last week (church, grocery shopping, random errands) & of course wore a mask the whole time! Resulting in some maskne 😢 But that is just temporary! As is every blemish! I definitely recommend trying these products guys! They are HOLY GRAILS if there ever was one! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Dream Eye Cream ✨💛
When youth to the people released their new eye cream this year, I was dying to try it out but didn’t want to commit to the full size. Thankfully they had a rare gwp offer with the sample right when I was going to stock up on my moisturizers 🙏🏼 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Dream Eye Cream With Goji Stem Cell and Ceramides What is it? yttp’s dream eye cream is formulated for nighttime use to hydrate, firm, and brighten the eye area Key Ingredients: goji stem cell: claims to stimulate skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles THD ascorbate (vit C): yttp loves this form of vitamin c that is stable and oil soluble superberry blend: like the dream oil and dream mask, the dream eye cream contains YTTP’s nourishing superberry blend with hydrating maqui, prickly pear, and squalane Product deets: This eye cream is completely fragrance free and has a thick texture that absorbs well. The Verdict? This is the first yttp product I’ve tried that I wouldn’t repurchase. The feel of the product is amazing and it does hydrate my eye area very well, but especially at this point in my life (I’m 28) I don’t need a lot from eye cream beyond hydration and their YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Hydrate + Firm Peptide Eye Cream , which is $13 less gives me plenty of that! I am so grateful I got a sample of this so I could ease my new product fomo and then go back to my standby! ✨ One thing to note - other than the added Goji stem cells and the fragrance removed, this eye cream has a very similar formulation to the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask If your eye area isn’t sensitive to gentle fragrances, but you want the intense hydration and vitamin C of the dream line, you could use the dream mask around your eye area.

•Adaptogen soothe + hydrate activated mist: a very fine hydrating mist.

It cleanses my skin without drying it out! ⁣⁣ ⁣ •Kombucha + 11% AHA exfoliating power toner: I use this toner every other night and I wake up with such nice bright skin! One of the few toners I feel actually does something. It does apply slightly sticky but when I put all my other products on it goes away. ⁣⁣ ⁣ •Adaptogen deep moisture cream: I’ve only tried this out a few time so I don’t have a full opinion yet but it definitely felt lightweight and sunk into my skin nicely. ⁣⁣ ⁣ •Superberry hydrate + glow dream mask: this is by far my favorite night mask.

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi
Moisturizing and more!!!
Moisturizing and more!!!
Sharing the beauty of YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi This has got to be one of the most hydrating moisturizers I’ve ever tried. And this beauty goes above and beyond moisturizing. This is a fragrance free formula made with Squalane, Jojba and Shae Butter. An Adaptogenic extract blend helps cope with dryness, redness, fine-lines and wrinkles while calming Peptides keep the skin response to environmental stressors in check. Proprietary Adaptogen Blend: Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, and Reishi. The use of adaptogens as medicine, taken internally and applied topically, has been championed by Eastern medicine and Ayurveda for 5,000 years. (Verbiage from their site) . Claims: 100% Vegan ingredients Recyclable packaging Made in USA 🇺🇸 Non-comedogenic No animal testing 🐰 No dimethicone No parabens No phthalates No fragrance I’ve been using this cream for about two weeks now. Out of all the moisturizers I have open I keep reaching for this. I have normal to dry skin and this helps keep it in balance. And I know I always say this, but just a dime-size seriously covers my entire face and neck. My favorites of theirs are - YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask - this one is a must have! Oh so good!!! I have so much admiration for this brand. When you go to their website the first thing you see is their support and dedication to taking a stance in ending racism and well as their long-time support of the LGBTQ community. 100% of the profits from their YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - With Pride Minis Kit 🏳️‍🌈 goes towards GSLEN. This kit has some of the top products. I’m headed to grab myself one right now 🏃‍♀️($34) . #contentcreator

my youth to the people holy gr
my youth to the people holy grails 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I love this company so much and their values are amazing. Love how they are sustainable and vegan, yet still so effective and good quality. Money spent on them is 100% worth it!! the moisturizer is perfect for daytime as it’s so lightweight but sinks in and hydrates so well. the mask is phenomenal at hydrating the skin but also softening, I wake up with plump skin and after around a week of usage I notice the vitamin C taking effect also as my skin was looking brighter! the mist is one of my favorites to layer with my serums and moisturizers at night as it gives you that burst of extra hydration as well as damn skin which helps you lock in more moisture. The ingredients in the mist are also amazing and really help soothe any redness I may have! Would definitely recommend all of these products to anybody!

Farmacy VS. Youth To The People, Say bye to which one?😥
Farmacy VS. Youth To The People, Say bye to which one?😥
Farmacy is really popular but I personally think that there's too much hype over it. I've used their Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask but I didn't get any other effects other than a warming sensation. Their Cleansing BalmFARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer is also pretty average and feels very oily. It's not as great as the Evelom cleansing balm, but of course, you get what you pay for. Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer has a really lightweight texture and it turns into water right away when applied, but it's not moisturizing enough as a day cream either in spring or summer. The moisturizing effect is not enough for my combination-dry skin. Youth To The People Kale + Spinach Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Superfood Moisture Cream has become my day cream after I finished my Farmacy moisturizer. I have to share a few things I like about it: It just smells so nice! It has a very natural, refreshing plant scent, and it has a lightweight texture just like the Farmacy moisturizer, but it's even more moisturizing. The texture falls somewhere between that of a gel and a cream, it spreads and is absorbed easily, it's non-greasy, and it uses the most natural ingredients. All in all, it meets all my needs for a day cream. Do you have the same feeling with me aftering using these?

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE MINIS - Two Creams and a Mas
I’ve been testing out these @youthtothepeople minis and here are my impressions: . They all have this obsessively velvety texture that I’ve never experienced with any other creams/sleeping masks before! . • Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask with Vitamin C: This was my favourite out of the bunch. This mask gives you an instant glow, adds hydration (HA and Squalene), and seals in moisture overnight. It has a subtle scent that I absolutely love. I will definitely be purchasing the full-sized product. . • Superfood Air Whip Moisture Cream: This has a similar, but more subtle scent, than their Superfood Cleanser. I used this as a day cream. Although this has HA, I didn’t find it hydrating enough during the colder months. It performed better in the summer but my skin still felt quite dehydrated towards the end of the day in the areas covered by my medical mask. I don’t think I will be purchasing the full sized product. . • Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream: I also used this as a day cream. Given its name I thought this would be more hydrating than the Air Whip cream but I didn’t actually notice a difference. Instead of HA, it uses Squalene to boost hydration. I had the same experience using this cream as I did with the Air Whip - better in the summer months but still felt dehydrated towards the end of the day in the areas covered by my medical mask. I don’t think I will be purchasing the full sized product.

THE YOUTH MINIS: Full Review! (Part 1)
THE YOUTH MINIS: Full Review! (Part 1)
So I bought YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - The Youth Minis Kit a few months ago and I feel I’ve finally used the products enough to give them an honest review! So here it is, my no-holds-barred review of this cult favorite brand. DISCLAIMER: This is just my personal experience with the products and I by no means speak for everyone’s experience. Maybe you love these products, and if they work for you, that’s amazing! If they don’t, I hope you find something that does! But if you haven’t and are looking into any of these products, I hope I can help you make an informed decision. Thanks! ON THE BRAND: I love YTTP’s mission, what they stand for, their sustainability and dedication to being inclusive. Their products, overall, have amazing formulations and I really admire them as a brand. I definitely want to try more of their products not included in this kit! I think they are killing it and I hope more brands switch to glass packaging and refill models! THE PRODUCTS YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask Is a hydrating sleeping mask with maqui berry, squalane, and vitamin c as its ingredient callouts to leave skin bright and bouncy in the morning. I wanted to love this mask so much! I was so bummed because it didn’t work for me at all. My skin is combo-dry, and this product sounded amazing but after using it three separate times it was the only time I can remember waking up with my skin being SO oily I actually had to wash my face and then I ended up with crazy bad breakouts on my cheek, a place I never break out. It feels amazing and I know it’s a deeply loved product, but it just didn’t work for me. I’m going to try using it as a 10 minute wash off mask instead! But for it’s intended use, it’s a no for me. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi A night cream with ashwaganda and reishi mushroom extract, squalane, jojoba oil, shea butter and a 5 peptide complex to smooth, soothe, and hydrate overnight. I AM IN LOVE. This is my new holy grail night cream and I do not say that lightly because I have VERY testy skin that I am constantly on a trial and error loop with, but nothing has been so amazing for my skin as this cream. It is somehow both thick and light. It takes a few minutes to absorb but it’s not so bad that my skin feels heavy. And in the morning when I wake up, my skin is smooth and actually hydrated. I’m sure it’s not this cream alone, but the texture on my cheeks is no longer rough and dry, and my redness has improved ever so slightly. This is 1000% a repurchase even if the price tag is a tad steep ($58 USD) because it is so worth it. If you have dry, sensitive, red skin, I highly recommend you give this product a try. Please check my page for the rest of the review! I promise I’ll try and keep it brief but informative. Thank you!
