Packaging 5/5

This moisturizer comes in a glass jar with a plastic cap and it has the information written in black. The packaging is quite simple, however, I absolutely love it. The glass jar makes it feel instantly more high-end. But what I love most about it is that it is safe for the planet. It’s extremely eco-friendly. Not only glass is safe for the environment, it is also an easy container to repurpose and reuse for something else!

Formula 5/5

Concerning the formula, this moisturizer is super rich and hydrating. It absorbs quickly into the skin and feels extremely lightweight. It makes my skin extremely moisturized and plumped! Moreover, it works wonderfully with my acne treatment, it manages to keep my skin less red and less irritated.

From an ingredients point of view, this moisturizer contains some really interesting ingredients like for instance, Panthenol which is an amazing humectant that is able to attract and hold moisture. This moisturizer also contains vitamin E which is a wonderful antioxidant that aids in skin regeneration and elasticity. Allantoin and Aloe Vera are two other great ingredients to soothe and protect the skin.


Conclusion – Youth To The People Adaptogen cream review 10/10

To conclude, I absolutely love this moisturizer. It is rich and moisturizing yet does not feel heavy or oily! I’m already thinking about purchasing another jar. It’s quite expensive hence I don’t know if I feel comfortable recommending it but I definitely would recommend to check it out if you can.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this review. If you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to subscribe to my blog.
