Pure Beauty: Youth Restore Lift & Nourish Repair Night Cream & Firming Essence Review

4.29.2015

staying youthful with Pure Beauty Youth Restore

Once you hit 25 years old, your anti-aging skincare products becomes your best friend. Seriously, I'm not kidding because I got pass 25 and I still look like I'm a university student. Sure, your lifestyle, your image, your fashion style does affect the way you look but looking youthful? It's no easy feat because once you pass those years and one day look into the mirror GASPED at the wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin, and how dull you look, you're going to regret not taking care of your skin because it's going to cost you double the time, effort and money to look great again.

I started using drug store skincare when I was 10 years old (seriously) then I had sensitive skin, and then dry skin and by the time I hit 25, I was already on anti-aging skincare. It's not hard, it just takes some research. First by exploring products available at the pharmacy (because they're affordable and it's interesting to discover products there), from friends and from reviews. The best was to ask around your friends, what works and what doesn't. Don't go jumping into luxury products if you're not at that "level" yet. Explore and try products available around you and stick to one that works for you.

what I do with my anti-aging skincare

How do you know if a product works? Well, knowing it doesn't irritate your skin (allergic / sensitive / too harsh on you), loving how it feels on you (yes, you gotta love doing this daily before you sleep!) and seeing how your skin loves it back (meaning it works). Just last week I received two (2) new product from Pure Beauty to review. I thought I incorporate my review with a basic how to find the right anti-aging skincare for my readers who's curious on how to stay youthful.

made for Asian women using the latest Korean technology

Step 1: Getting to know the product

So I receive two products from Pure Beauty, under their Youth Restore (Lift & Nourish) range, a repair night cream and a firming essence. Pure Beauty Youth Restore Lift & Nourish line has been clinically tested and proven to improve skin quality. The product claims to have proven reduce fine lines and smooth out wrinkles, while enhancing your skin's elasticity and firmness with consistent use. Generally, to see results one would have to diligently use your products on a daily basis for at least up to 4 weeks to see improvements to your skin before and after.
Pure Beauty Youth Restore Lift & Nourish contains Liftonin Complex, Red Ginseng Peptide, Green Caviar, Blue Lotus Extracts, Certified Organic Active Extracts and an Enriched Antioxidant Combo to restore your skin youth. The powerful ingredients boosts elasticity, reduces wrinkles, lock in hydration, soothing and prevent early signs of ageing. With clinically proven results, this beautiful new formula is professionally formulated in Korea to help your beauty last forever.

The bonus points about these products are that they're dermatologically tested, Paraben free, Lanolin free and Alcohol free. Being alcohol free is a big bonus for me because I have sensitive skin. Alcohol is drying and may irritate sensitive skin you see. Did I mention how I love Korean skincare products before? Pure Beauty is made in Korea!.


Let's move into the ingredients benefits as I'm liking what I read on the packaging.


1. Boost skin eleasticity & reduces wrinkles:
Enhances skin's firmness and moisture. Rich in antioxidants which fight against the damaging effects of free radicals. Anti-ageing Complex (Liftonin, Red Ginseng Peptide, Noni Fruit Extract).

2. Locks in hydration:
Secure skin moisture and prevents early signs of ageing with natural antioxidants to rejuvenate your skin. Sea Grapes (Green Caviar), and Blue Lotus extract.

3. Enhances soothing effects:
Soothes skin using internationally recognised organic and natural raw ingredients. Certified Organic extracts (Thymus Vulgaris "Thyme", Buddleja Davidii, Edelweiss).

4. Keeps skin radiance:

to be use day & night after cleansing & toning

The firming essence helps to enhance facial contours by using highly concentrated active ingredients that help plump, restore and rejuvenate your skin.

The repair night cream is enriched with highly concentrated active ingredients vital to help you achieve younger-looking skin at nigh time. It is dedicated to reduce fine lines and improve dull complexions, giving you a fresher, more youthful looking, supple skin from the moment you wake up.

I love the texture! Gel turns into watery liquid that quickly
gets absorbed into the skin :)

Step 2: Try the product

Every night before I sleep, I will cleanse my face and apply the firming essence. The firming essence is my favourite between the two products. Upon pumping, it gives a gel like texture and when I massage it to my skin, the gel melts into water, velvety to the touch and is quickly absorbed by my skin. It leaves a strong power fragrance, which I like because I am not sensitive to fragrance. I use a pull and lift massage technique with this firming essence.

After, I would apply 50cents coin amount of the repair night cream on both my cheeks, the place I suffer dryness and as I believe it, the front line of my face that suffers from aging signs first or should I say, obvious signs of aging first. Think pigmentation, age spots, saggy dull cheeks.

Step 3: Seeing the difference

My verdict as for now would be I am going to continue using this product because I love the textures on the two babies. Using the latest Korean technology, they really do understand Asian women's skincare woes. Being in such hot and humid weather just makes skincare sometimes a pain to use. Particularly if they're rich and creamy. I find that the repair night cream rich and creamy on the first impression, however as I massage it into my skin using firming and lifting techniques, I find the velvety cream just becomes a second layer of skin, still hydrating but not overly creamy or greasy that it leaves stains on my pillows. When I wake up in the morning, I could still feel the velvety smoothness on my skin. I am impressed.

For the firming essence which I love the texture as well as it's one of the latest hype in Korean skincare to have gel textures turned watery, slippery to the touch and just envelopes your skin as you apply it in a lifting manner (upwards) on your face during application. The absorption rate is alarming as my skin which was watery becomes dry in a matter of seconds. Now that's Korean technology to you. I can feel a smooth protective layer after application and it's not as hydrating since it's an essence so using the repair night cream after is a must for dry skin people like me.

I do find that both products has a strong powdery scent which may be a turn off to those sensitive to fragrance but you know what? I am loving it as I use them before bedtime and the smell of powder just makes me feel like a big baby.

I am going to continue this for another 3 weeks and see if there's any significant results :) I do find my face still glowing and hydrated in the morning but I can't determine any signs of aging has been reduced so do stay tune :) when I come back here to edit my post to update on my feedback.
