YSL Forever Youth Liberator Eye Zone Serum Review

YSL Forever Youth Liberator Eye Zone Serum*, £45 – Feelunique || Debenhams

Back when the YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum (HERE) was launched, it was named “the ‘holy grail’ of anti-ageing”. A few weeks ago, YSL added a new product to the Forever Youth Liberator line, which targets specifically the eye zone. I jumped at the chance to try this revolutionary product, after all, who doesn’t want to look younger and fresher?

This is the YSL Forever Youth Liberator Eye Zone Serum, the first YSL eye serum that targets the panoramic eye area (crow’s feet, under eye wrinkles and frown lines). It contains the Glycanatif complex, which helps stimulate the skin’s ability to recover its own youthfulness. The serum comes with a little pipette drop applicator to give you more control over the amount of product you want to use.

How does it work?

I’m terribly sorry, but I may have to get a bit scientific here; I don’t usually read that deeply into what beauty products are made of, but the entire Forever Youth Liberator line makes a lot of bold promises, and I want to make sure that we understand exact how it plans to deliver them.

I’ll try to keep it simple: first of all, the formula inside the Forever Youth Liberator Eye Zone Serum is based on the fact that as we get older our skin looses its firmness and looks a bit wrinkly. That’s because there isn’t as much collagen available to hold everything in place. So if we know who (or what) is responsible for producing collagen, we can try to give it a little help producing some more, right?!

Glycans are partially responsible for the making of collagen, but they decrease in quantity with age. The YSL Forever Youth Liberator uses a formula (Glycanatif complex) that helps stimulate these Glycans so they can continue to play their part in the production of collagen, and we can go back to looking young and fresh. And that’s how YSL promises to fight wrinkles, dark circles, puffiness, crow’s feet and frown lines –  I hope I haven’t lost you with all the geeky lingo by now! :)

Does it work?

Even though I’ve not aged all that much yet, I am in my late twenties, and so I’ve decided to make a true effort to look after my skin. I don’t have any visible wrinkles, but I do have dark under eye circles and under eye bags (don’t we all?). I’ve chosen them to be my target area whilst trying this product and looking for results.

According to YSL, you can see visible results from the first application, and after 3 days “wrinkles look smoothed, dark circles and under eye bags appear reduced”. I’ve been using the Eye Zone Serum for about a week, and I have noticed my skin looks firmer around my eyes and my dark circles are not so dark anymore, but I want to give it at least a month before I can write a full review.

I will report back with ‘Before and After’ photos and a progress update, so watch this space! I understand that this is an expensive product, so I want to give you as much details as possible so you can make an informed decision before committing to buy it. If you do decide to give it a try, remember to monitor your progress (maybe document it by taking photographs); the difference can be very subtle if you’re not ageing so much yet.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi ysis, I’m 18 years old and I’ve been using this product for about a month now, before using this serum, my eyelids and under eye are was a darker colour than the rest of my face and as I’m indian, it shows up a lot more on my skin, I’ve been using this serum for about a month now and its definately made a difference. Even though thje difference is subtle, my skin looks brighter under my eyes and it makes my face look fresher even though it should already look that way since I’m still young. Just wanted to write this review to help others when deciding if they should buy this product or not :) so basically, yes. Its worth the money and it’ll probably make more of a difference on older skin so go and buy it! Btw ysis thanks for this amazing review, very informative!
