eye creams

correct eye cream (USD) $150            

The BEST eye cream is better than ever.
Improved Formula - Fall 2014
Our end-all-be-all eye cream keeps getting better to help you fight signs of aging, sagging skin and the look of fatigue around the eyes. Correct includes peptides that improve hydration and tone, combat sagging skin, and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness. Now with six advanced skin brighteners, Correct more effectively reduces dark circles and in time brightens the entire eye area. We’ve also dramatically improved how Correct moisturizes, feels going on and how it dispenses, which now – FINALLY -- is flawless.

Invigorating & Protective Eye Cream
Perhaps a better name for Correct would have been, "ZING!" because of the energizing and recharging experience you get from caffeine, vitamins, and a bounty of top antioxidants. Part of a highly advanced series of peptides included in Correct are Sepilift DPHP, Relistase™, Matrixyl 3000™, Syn®-Tacks, Syn®-Hycan, and Tego® Pep 4-17. These make for your ultimate option today in eye area skin care.

Targets Lines & Puffiness
We were serious about fighting eye area wrinkles when we created Correct. A concentrated cocktail of the latest age-fighting peptides are here to serve and help to smooth the skin, plump up existing wrinkles and curtail new ones from appearing. Now with addition of the peptides Uplevity™ and Matrixyl® synthe’6™ along with the award-winning puffy-eye-fighting peptide Eyeseryl®, Correct takes a leap forward in its ability to help you look your best.

Reduces Dark Circles
Correct’s power combination of six brighteners targets dark circles and signs of fatigue from every angle. Most causes of dark circles are addressed from hyperpigmentation to other forms of natural discoloration that leave you looking worn out or not so well rested. Together, these brighteners – alpha arbutin, licorice root extract, the powerful isolated antioxidant from turmeric (tetrahydrodiferyloylmethane), trans resveratrol, quercetin and the peptide Haloxyl® – all work in concert together unlike any other eye area brightener combination available. Delicate eye area tissue is strengthened, dark iron deposits are flushed from the skin, and excess pigmentation is put on notice resulting for cumulative improvements to eye area brightness that make you look more rested and alert.

New additional actives in Correct’s fall 2014 updated formula:
Uplevity™ – peptide improving elasticity and reducing skin sagging
Matrixyl® synthe’6™ – skin smoothing and rebuilding peptide
Cupuacu butter – moisturizer and skin conditioner
Aspen bark extract – skin smoother and natural preservative
Quercetin dehydrate – brightener and antioxidant

clarity matcha green tea facial mask (USD) $9 to $40           

You're in for a treat with our matcha face mask, loaded with antioxidants — ready for you to mix fresh and enjoy.
Give yourself a fresh glow and quality spa treatment experience anytime with our mix-it-fresh Japanese ceremonial grade green tea and French green clay mask. We created this luxurious mask especially to draw out the bad stuff while infusing your skin with lots (and lots) of the good stuff.

French green clay, as you may know, is revered to help clean and detoxify the skin, drawing out the gunk from your pores that often results in congested, breakout-prone skin. It's also a wonderful ingredient that helps tone and tighten the skin.

Japanese green tea has been prepared for hundreds of years as matcha, a delicate stone ground powder naturally abundant with antioxidants and amino acids. Those in the know who love matcha as a healthy beverage are familiar with differing quality grades ranging from coarse, bitter and astringent with unappealing color to the most honored, ceremonial grades — often ridiculously costly but vibrantly chartreuse, flavorful and sought after. Most matcha facial masks on the market today make use of inexpensive, low grade matcha. Clarity is very different and we're excited to be using some of the very best matcha in the world — matcha that would normally be reserved exclusively for Japanese tea ceremonies.

One of the many active antioxidants found in green tea is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). We weren't satisfied with the already high amounts of EGCG present in matcha so we added more by including pure EGCG in Clarity's formula. Like we said, this mask is loaded with antioxidants! We also included the same powerful antioxidants infused into our Private Reserve Antioxidant Oils: spin trap, Lipochroman-6 and vitamin e succinate.

Your skin will soak up and love the extra vitamins we added. Vitamin B5 works wonders on tired, dull skin and a gentle but extremely effective form of vitamin C helps protect and brighten skin.

Rounding out Clarity, alpha bisabolol and thyme naturally reduce inflammation and work to discourage the bacteria that contribute to breakouts.Clarity is a thoughtfully crafted mask with so many good things to soak up we think your skin will glow with appreciation. ...and Clarity smells divine too!

popular with: everyone
best to use: day or night once or more per week

(USD)
$9 / 4.5 grams one single use packet
(USD)
$40 / 5x 4.5 grams five single use packets

preparation
Into a small bowl, precisely measure two teaspoons of water and one teaspoon of honey. Empty in packet and with a fork, briskly stir for 30 seconds or longer until smooth. Then allow the mask to rest 15 minutes before use. We recommend you use raw New Zealand manuka honey for the best experience and benefits. Clarity also plays well with all products in our line. Try adding one of our Concentrates, or for added moisture a touch of your favorite Private Reserve antioxidant oil. You can even add a dollop of Prep for an even more luxurious exfoliation treatment.


application
Start with a clean face. Avoiding the eye area, apply a thick layer of mask. Clarity will not stain the skin but may stain light or white cloth material. Wear dark clothing and use dark washcloths and towels when possible. Enjoy the mask for 20 minutes or until completely dry.


removal
Shower off or use a warm washcloth to rehydrate and gently remove the mask. Once removed, rinse with cool water and apply your favorite product from our line.

With Boost, your skin is moisturized and is infused with a healthy dose of anti-agers, antioxidants, botanicals and vitamins.

lip treatments

define lip cream (USD) $70        

NEW Formula Launched March 25, 2014 and is your most advanced option for improving the overall look and condition of your lips and lip area.
Define Lip Cream, now even better for your best lips — your best kiss, yet!

Softer more youthful looking lips can be yours. Define targets the lip area to create a smoother, firmer contour and brighter, fuller lips.

Major and exciting changes are in store for our lip cream. The new Define is smoother, silkier and applies to the lip area better than before and has a new aroma profile of vanilla absolute, nutmeg, fir balsam absolute and spearmint.

Most exciting though are the changes to active ingredients and in particular, heavy-handed use of these peptides:
(new to the formula) Matrixyl Synthe-6, Syn-Hycan, TegoPep 4-Even
(continuing to use in the formula) Syn-Tacks and Hilurip

We’ve also added these botanicals to Define: Quercetin, Licorice Leaf Extract and Rosehip Seed Oil

Added vitamins and antioxidants offering more free radical protection than ever: B6 (coenzyme B6 as pyridoxal-5-phosphate) and CoQ10

So, forget about those traditional, short term lip plumpers, Define is with you for the long haul. The brighter, fuller lips you get with Define are a result of ingredients chosen for their ability to actually improve the appearance of your lips and help them look natural and in great shape.


How Define came to be.
We heard many YBF customers were using our eye cream to brighten their lips and fight vertical lip lines, so we set out to create a solution better suited for the lips.

Working with Truth In Aging's exclusive consumer product testing panel, we created Define Lip Area Anti-Age Cream.
  
popular with: everyone
best to use: day or night

(USD)
$70 / .5 oz (15 ml) airless pump
size options in our store: sample ($10.50), trial size ($32.50) and full size ($70)

directions

Apply sparingly to the lip area and massage until fully absorbed. Alternatively, apply liberally as a nighttime lip mask, set as long as desired. Remove excess with a dry cloth.

More about Define's Brighening & Countouring
Define works very much like our eye cream and Restore to reduce hyperpigmentation. For the lips, the result is redder or pinker lips that look more vibrant and youthful. Define also includes peptides that help reduce existing lip lines and prevent new ones from forming.

Product Tips
Before applying Define, try using your toothbrush to lightly brush your lips. Doing this sloughs off dead skin, smoothes the lips and helps you get even better results from Define.

Define is off-white and minty fresh. The xylitol in Define is what adds sweetness and is safe for use by those with diabetes.

advanced CE concentrate (USD) $50            

Gentle, divine, creamy and ohhhhh so wonderful for your skin.
By our own account, this is the best vitamin C product you'll ever find. Darrell here at YBF says, "Seriously, I always thought we'd never produce a vitamin C product. The market has always been flooded with (a few good and lots of bad) vitamin C products, so I resolved myself that a great vitamin C cream could never be made that's both gentle AND effective. Toward the end of summer 2012 I started thinking about the possibility of us producing a C product but wanted it to be something special and effective yet anyone could use. I threw out the idea of using the usual irritating and unstable Cs commonly used: ascorbic acid, ascorbyl palmitate and used to a lesser extent, ascorbyl phosphate. I also knew I wanted to use at least one stable oil soluble and one water soluble form of C. Eventually I landed on three Cs I loved and we developed this wonderful, potent and yet still gentle formula using some of the more novel and costly new Cs available. The addition of a specialized form of vitamin E and the skin calmer, alpha bisabolol was icing on the cake."

hydrate B concentrate (USD) $45            

Hydrate & rejuvenate your skin with the perfect addition to your skin care regimen.
Improving hydration is an important step toward better-looking skin. Adding use of Hydrate B Concentrate to your routine, along with other skincare products you already know and love, can help you get more from the moisturizers and other products you use.

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. While boosting hydration, Hydrate B also infuses skin with three forms of vitamin B that help skin become more toned, clear and radiant.


This moisture-binding, clear gel with its three forms of B vitamins works to help rejuvenate the skin, speed healing, and improve tone and texture. Hydrate B Concentrate generally pairs best applied prior to other products, but you may also find it to be a gentle alternative to using toners or as a stand-alone skincare treatment depending on the climate in which you live.

Darrell here at YBF says, "You've got to try this as a pre & post-shave treatment!"
