Review: Youth to the People

Kale cleanser – I found it very similar in feel and results to the Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Cleanser that everyone seems to love. It left my skin feeling tight and stripped when used on its own. I think it would be good if you do the oil cleansing method (see previous posts) and use this to finish, or if you like that squeaky clean feeling, or just have really oily skin, but for me it was too much. It definitely removes all makeup thoroughly though, and I liked the herby scent. I have to say though, I much prefer using the Kale & Spinach cream from this company, and would stick to my oil cleansers.

Kale & Spinach Cream – It feels like a Korean/Japanese water cream, except it is the TINIEST bit less silky and sinks in more quickly – because of no silicones. Besides the vegetable extracts, it has glycerin, panthenol, and hyaluronic acid for hydrating and sunflower oil for moisturizing plus a little bit of Vitamin E. Like all water creams, it is a very light moisturizer which would be great for oily/normal skin but probably not enough on its own for us drier types. For drier skin I would mix in a few drops of your favorite oil. It is fragrance-free, but does have a scent that is kinda vegetable-y (as it should) but I felt very neutral about it, didn’t like or dislike it, it was just there? All in all it’s a lovely moisturizer for oily/normal skin if you want a water cream that sinks in and disappears. I prefer this to Tatcha’s water cream with the silicones and fragrance, plus it’s a bit cheaper too which is a bonus. If you want dramatic changes besides hydration however, you will need to apply something with actives.

Overall -I love the branding on this, adding our green superfoods to facial creams for nutrients is a really fun idea and they’ve done a great job with it. Besides their eye cream with peptides and superfood serum with AHA, they don’t really use clinical actives, so most of their products are best for the basics in your routine but you will want to pair them with some active-filled serums if you are trying to dramatically change your skin.
