Youth To The People Discovery Kit Review
Like a lot of discovery kits (especially Sephora Favorites Kits), all of the info you’ll need on the products is on the back of the package.
Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser, 1 oz. – Estimated Value $5.00 (Buy a 2 oz. bottle for $10.00)
The more I use this kale + green tea cleanser, the more I love it. One whiff of the open bottle and it smells straight up like a smoothie or a salad with the help of kale, spinach, and green tea. This liquid gel cleanser has a nice consistency and lathers to a light airy foam when in use. My skin feels incredibly clean and fresh after using this and it legitimately makes me excited to wash my face. Full-size, here I come!
Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner, 1 oz. – Retail Value $9.50 (Buy a 4 oz. bottle for $38.00)
I had such high hopes for this toner, but it turns out it’s a little harsh for me. This toner is meant to gently chemically exfoliate your skin with 8% lactic acid and 3% glycolic acid to reduce pores and revitalize dull skin. It has a sharp scent to it and even though the directions state “the combination of ingredients not only exfoliate but work synergistically to retain hydration, which can cause the product to feel ‘tacky,’” I just can’t get down. It also will have a bit of a tingly feeling and some redness after which is normal, but always slightly alarms me. They suggest using your favorite moisturizer overtop but even with other products my skin feels too tacky and didn’t make me happy. Since AHAs can be a little intense, they also suggest using this a few times a week and slowly building up to daily use. I think I’ll just stick to physical exfoliants and soothing toners…
Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi, 0.5 oz. – Estimated Value $14.50 (Buy a 2 oz. jar for $58.00)
This moisture cream is so silky and smooth and makes my skin feel the same! The other night, I had forgotten my overnight bag to stay at my sweetie’s house, but luckily I had this sneaky little jar in my bag. Just a perk of the job, I guess! After removing my makeup and washing my face with the cleanser I have stowed at his place, I slathered this on my thirsty skin and sighed a big sigh of relief. The featured ingredients of squalane, ashwagandha, and fermented reishi worked together to soothe and rehydrate my skin so I had one less thing to worry about. My face still felt soft as heck when I woke up the next morning, so I’m going to take this moment to say “thank you!”
Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask, FULL SIZE 2 oz. – Retail Value $48.00
The only full-size product of the kit is this pleasing yellow dream mask made with super berry: maqui, which is the most antioxidant-dense fruit in the world. Along with squalane, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C, this mask aims to hydrate, brighten, and plump my skin while I sleep. Truth be told, I had a mini version of this from a past Sephora Favorites Kit but wanted MORE. Sleeping masks are one of the easiest parts of a skincare routine since you just spread it on before bed and forget about it. This has a really pleasant citrus scent and although the cream is on the thicker side, it doesn’t feel greasy or oily. My skin drinks it up and leaves my face feeling dewy and looking youthful the next morning.
Verdict: The Youth To The People Discovery Kit did indeed hit the $77 value in this box with the four included items. Since I’ve been wanting to try some of their skincare, I was excited to see some in one package to test out at once. Three of the four were winners for me and I’m glad that I could try smaller, cheaper amounts before splurging on full sizes. It’s hard to pick a favorite among the cleanser, moisture cream, and dream mask so I’ll just give them a tie while the AHA toner was a little much for me. Sadly, this box is sold out but they have a minis kit with three of the same items plus 2 more- all in mini sizes for an even better price.
To Wrap Up:
