Yves Saint Laurent 'Forever Youth Liberator' Serum
Not my cup of tea
I love YSL beauty products but never had a chance to try out their skincare line. After a few month, I finally decided to splurge on this. After the first week, everything was okay, nothing really happened. The 2nd week, my face started to break out and the only thing I added to my routine is this serum! I stopped using this serum and my breakout got better. I'm going to have to return this because I could really do so much with $150. :((( Too bad it didnt work out, I was so excited to try it out.
The bottle is also very heavy which makes me feel like most of my money goes to the bottle itself and not the actual serum
Works okay but annoying bottle = overpriced
This serum seems to work okay but I've only used a couple weeks so can't say for sure.
What I don't like about this serum is the design of the bottle and the dropper. Through normal usage, I have already tipped over the bottle and spilled serum onto my counter not once, but twice!
The body of the dropper is made of glass and is quite long and weighty; the glass bottle itself is also heavy and tall. The rubber part of the dropper (which protrudes from top of bottle) is flimsy and lightweight. What has happened to me is I put enough from the dropper on my fingers for my face, re-insert the dropper, and do not screw it back in because I intend to put a drop on my fingers again to do my neck. Then when I go back to get that second drop, I bump the flimsy rubber part, or fumble with it to get more serum out, and the whole bottle tips over as a result. (I don't want to put too much serum on in just one step because I'm afraid it will be too heavy on my face.)
Another thing that concerns me about this bottle/stopper system is I have no idea what I will do when I get down to about 1/3 of the product. The bottle is not see through, so no way to know what level the serum is at. But ignoring that point, the design of the whole system makes it seem that there will be a lot of serum stuck to the sides and on bottom that will be inaccessible. This wouldn't be bad IF the bottle were not that big (like if it held only about 1 oz and was more squat and maybe partial see through) and if the serum were more reasonably priced, but as it is, I anticipate a lot of waste at great cost to me.
I'm so bothered by this that I'm thinking of returning this serum for another one that has a better designed bottle and stopper.
This serum is so luxurious, within 1 week you see a visible difference in your skin. People are complimenting me on my complexion. Haven't had compliments on my skin in years. Love this product. Would definitely recommend this product for anyone that needs bounce and radiance back in their skin!!! Try it - You will LOVE It.
