Y/OU’RE going to love this post if you’re looking for a good skincare routine! Y/OUR designs a personalized regimen based on what you’re looking to improve in your skin. They sent me my own kit to try out, and I’m impressed! After following the regimen for 2 weeks, I definitely see results in the areas I asked for. Also, the packaging that it comes in is so cute, I ended up keeping it as storage for the products. It opens up like a little drawer and has separators for each of the 4 products.
How It Works
Visit the website here, and click “Get Started” to take their quiz. They ask for things like your skincare goals, skin type, how your skin reacts to certain environmental factors, and other probing questions. After you finish, the system puts together a 4 step regimen with personalized ingredients in each product. You’ll receive your analysis via email about 15 minutes after finishing the quiz. After you place your order, you’ll receive your box in about 5 business days (mine came in 3). If you use all 4 products as designed, you start to see a difference in your skin in the pain points that you indicated in the survey! The products in my pictures are full sized, and it’s a 3 month supply.
The analysis you get via email shows a summary of your skin concerns, the ingredients chosen for your products, and the details of your personalized routine. I told them that I wanted to focus on wrinkle reduction/prevention, redness, and dry skin. A lot of skincare products focus on acne, which is not really an issue for me so I appreciated how easy it was to customize the experience. Based on that, plus the other factors in the quiz, these are my ingredients:
I have never had an actual skincare routine, so this subscription is perfect for me. If you’re a skincare newbie too, I definitely recommend this. I used to just use random products here and there, would forget to use them all of the time, and never really knew if they were working. This box gives you all the pieces to the puzzle, and tells you exactly when to use them and in what order. Each box comes with a cleanser, day cream, serum, and a night cream. To be honest, I kept forgetting to use the night cream, but I still saw results even with just the first 3.
I use the first 3 products right after I shower in the morning. The first time I used the cleanser, I didn’t wet my face enough so it didn’t foam up like it’s supposed to. After I realized that, it worked great! (Can you tell 'I’m a skincare newbie?) My skin feels super smooth and hydrated after just the cleanser itself.
The day cream comes next, and mine is specifically to protect my skin from the sun to prevent wrinkles since I live in Florida. My analysis says, “You mentioned you are not using sun protection. This is not optional.” So bossy, I love it… haha! All I need is 2 small drops of the day cream, and it covers my entire face. It also smells so good! It’s a subtle smell, which I appreciate because I can’t stand strong smelling lotions that linger throughout the day.
Without even checking the details of the serum in my analysis, I knew right away after the first use that it was suppose to reduce redness. It doesn’t completely remove all redness like a foundation does, but it definitely works. It dulls the redness in my cheeks and chin which has gotten pretty noticeable since I moved to Miami. I’ve tried other serums that leave my face feeling sticky or take too long to dry, but I loved this one. It leaves a smooth coat over my face, but doesn’t feel heavy at all. I would recommend putting it on right after the day cream, I found that they work better together.
The night cream is supposed to prevent wrinkles and nourish your skin, but like I said…I keep forgetting to use it. I am much more ambitious with my skincare in the morning, apparently. Even so, the first 3 products do reduce the wrinkles under my eyes, and allow for smoother makeup application. I actually haven’t put foundation on my face very much in the last 2 weeks, because I’ve just been in love with how my natural skin looks and feels.
Y/OUR has an awesome customer service team that will help you fine tune your formulas if you feel like the first batch isn’t quite right. I wouldn’t change anything about mine, but their satisfaction guarantee policy allows you to reformulate your products for free up to 2 times during the first 3 months. If you run out of any of the products before 3 months, they’ll send one off gifts to keep you stocked up.
For all of you environmentally friendly and anti-animal testing peeps, this is what Y/OU’RE looking for! They use clean ingredients, no filters, no animal testing, and everything is made in the US. ~bonus~
Pricing & Subscription
To get your 3 month supply, you can pay a 1 time fee of $195 or opt for a payment plan of $65/month. In case you’re wondering, I don’t get commission for sales and I’m recommending this product/company because I truly love it, and will continue to use it myself!
I asked Y/OUR for a discount code since we’re blogging on a budget over here, and they were nice enough to give me one!! Use this link here, and you’ll see a banner at the top of the web page that says “Limited Time $15 Off Our Award Winning Personalized Skin Care System.” You can redeem the discount at checkout. The normal website doesn’t have that option, you lucky ducks.
