(Reviewed) The YSL Forever Youth Liberator Y-Shape Concentrate with Glycanactif Y-Complex

I popped into my local Debenhams store Beauty counter with the purpose of purchasing my usual YSL Forever Youth Liberator Serum, only to be told that they had sold out, but would I be interested in taking a look at the YSL Forever Youth Liberator Concentrate for the face, neck and décolleté (the delicate area between your collar bones).

Looking at this product before me, trying to whey up whether to try something new or not, I followed my instincts, thinking that, it’s still the brand that I trust and it never fails to disappoint me.

The “Y-Shape” contains the Glycanactif Y-Complex, a BIG plus in my book, all an added bonus for me.

I had a little tester, applying it mainly to my neck and décolleté area, these are my problem zones, repeated sun damage over the years are the main cause, unfortunately.  I was hooked, this product smoothed them out a little with instant results.

Product Overview

Product:  Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Concentrate for Face, Neck and Décolleté.
Price:  £66 for 30 ml
Place That I Purchased From:  Debenhams Department Store.
My Rating: 10/10 and more.

The Testing Out of This Product

I have used it every day for a week, I did feel undecided about the texture to begin with, along with the pump spray applicator, but extremely impressed with the results.

The texture is very much in keeping with a Serum, much thicker though, keeping it more in line with a concentrate.

The applicator is brilliant, it only delivers a small amount, making sure that you do not use too much, well thought out indeed – very clever.

Upon the first application of “Y-Shape”, you could possibly think that it has a sticky feel, that could leave a residue on your face etc… but it doesn’t, it quickly dissipates to reveal a lovely, smooth, soft texture to your skin.

By day three I had noticed that my skin, particularly around my delicate eye area and cheeks, felt more refined.  The skin on my neck and décolleté had started to firm up.

It’s all looking good for me. to be revealing my results in one months time, as the description suggests 🙂

What YSL Have to Say

This is quoting from the Debenhams website within the YSL Forever Youth Leberator Y-Shape Concentrate section:

“The first firming concentrate by Yves Saint Laurent, containing the Glycanactif Y-complex, to act on the look of Y-shape i.e. face, neck and décolleté through a firming effect in just 7 days skin feels suppler and looks more luminous.  After 1 month facial skin feels firmer and denser while the neck and décolleté look visibly tighter, for a more defined Y-shape.  Apply morning and evening on face, neck and décolleté.”

Well, I whole heartedly agree with the 7 day effect.

I will write another review after 1 month to keep you all up to date.

In a Nut Shell

  • This product is a fantastic anti-aging product.
  • It will help in firming up the neck and delicate chest area.
  • We all need help after the age of 35 in toning everything up and especially with increasing sun damage.
  • This product is perfect for those of us in our Fifties.
  • The neck and décolleté are the first signs of aging no matter what we do to our faces.
  • I will most definitely be a regular purchaser of the “Y-Shape”, that’s for sure.

I hope that I have covered any thoughts or questions that you may have concerning this product, however, I would love to hear what you have to say.
