When it comes to face moisturisers, the lazier we can be and the harder it works, the better. So, when one comes along and promises to re-program your skin to ‘act younger’ with just one slather, we’re all ears.
That’s exactly what this new high street skin cream is claiming and it’s hitting the UK for the first time. Yes, we’re excited!
Youth Lab’s Oxygen Moisture Cream, which costs £19.90 at Boots, contains a bunch of metabolic ingredients including wild yam, baker’s yeast, ribose, vitamin B-3 and biomimetic actives which promise to reverse the signs of ageing.
The science is all down to the ingredients - because they’re herbal and biocompatible, the skin recognises them as their own, soaking them up instantly so they get to work right away.
These genius 'ampoules' that will make your skin look better than ever are selling 2,000 units every single minute
Wild Yam is a bit of a super ingredient known for its ability to stimulate collagen reproduction, keeping skin looking plump and glowing. It also helps reduce the appearance of dark spots.
Then there’s the Ribose, a natural occurring carbohydrate used in skincare to boost cell energy, which in turn, helps to fade wrinkles.
Youth Lab’s founder, Konstantinos Kafkas, has said that, ‘Youth Lab will make skin of a 40-year-old perform like it did in your thirties - reducing ageing, reversing signs of sun damage, giving it more moisture, better texture and lasting results.’
A last-minute Christmas list addition? You bet. Sadly, it's crashed the Boots website so you'll need to leg it to your nearest store.
(50ml) is available from Boots, £19.90
