[Review] L’Oreal Youth Code pre-essence

Standard

one of the items in last month’s Bellabox – the hyped up L’Oreal Youth code pre-essence!

i am quite excited to try this cos i’ve seen the ads everywhere, prints, internet, youtube. was thinking if its really so good… increase absorption of skin X2!

this is meant to be used on cleansed face before the usual skincare routine. I was apprehensive at first as i really dont get these multi steps routine, and i think its just a marketing gimmick to add another ‘staple’ into the routine

 

100,000 women tried it and saw instant results

the essence is off-white in colour of thick consistency, more runny than your usual serums

And true enough, I must be the 100,001 person whom saw instant results.
the skin really becomes softer immediately. however, i am not sure if softer skin = better for absorption of products.

applying to only the right side of my face (LEFT SIDE OF THE PHOTO)

i have tried this for about a week. i am happy to use it as my skin really becomes significantly softer each time i applied, with no sticky feeling.
If this is to increase the effectiveness of my skincare, i think its hard to judge as i seldom see visible difference and i always believe skincare is part of a long process to keep up and maintain.

i would recommend this to others, considering it is affordable and it works to keep skin soft and prep for the next steps of nutrients
