Just past half way 😊😊

So I’m just over half way on my skin journey and I must admit I’m sooooo happy with the results. I have tried so many different skin products and they never really do what they claim or I get disappointed halfway through and jump ship. (I’m a bit of a product junkie) However this time I decided to stick to this and I’m so pleased I have. My skin, looks and feels amazing. Definitely going be recommending this to friend, family and anyone who will listen. Just one quick question, I need to now...

Mineral sunscreen

I would like to know if at some point you guys are thinking of making a mineral sunscreen. I have tried to change many habits, especially in relation to the environment, so I have opted for mineral sunscreen instead of chemical, because it is also healthier for the skin and I had skin trouble with avobenzone base products( allergy problems) . What are your thoughts about this?

@luneangeli No plans at the moment but we love hearing your suggestions! When did you first start using a mineral sunscreen?Read More...

Do you do?

was wondering if yous do a soap free, foam facial wash? Seen your post about cleansing brushes and remembered I actually have one that’s never even been used and with a little research on how to use it found out that using a soap free foam face wash is apparently best.. I have your exfoliating face wash and the hot cloth cleanser so not sure either is suitable and thought I’d ask if yous done a soap free foam one.

@Ca0 All of our cleansers are soap free 😊

Recommended scrub

Hi everyone!! I have been using the balancing skin concentrate, the anti-oxidant day cream, the pro-vitamin overnight cream and the refreshing facial wash. I just was wondering if there are any of the other products that I should now introduce into my regime? I do have some blackheads on my nose. Any recommendations would be gratefully accepted! Thanks, Heather

I recommend the scrub, it’s gentle for everyday use if needed and also the lip balm is really good 😊Read More...

Products pilling/balling up

Hi everyone. So I've been using a few ygs products together recently. Just noticed that the products seem to be pilling in my skin, i.e. just balling up when trying to rub them in. What am I doing wrong? I'm using in order, glycolic toner, concentrate, anti blemish lotion and then moisturiser. First I thought it might be the anti blemish lotion so took that out of the routine. Still same result☹️ To top it off my foundations going everywhere !!! Please help, cos I absolutely love the...

Produced order

Hi, I've just joined this so bare with me. I've recently just update my skin care routine from 3 products to more & would like to know what order I should be applying them in, I know cleanser and toner are first but should I use the ygs concentrate before my day and night cream & eye cream or after? And when should I add facial oil? Really looking forward to seeing the end results of my 28 day challenge X

Newbie advice

Hi I just had a few questions as I’ve never Followed a beauty Regime before and would like to check I am following it correctly... 1.) how much time should I leave between putting concentrate on and then moisturising? 2.) is the concentrate just for cheeks, forehead and Chin (eg not nose)? 3.) how long after The moisturiser should I leave until I apply make up? 4.) the day and night moisturisers are Different sizes. Should I be using Different amounts / are the both bottles supposed to last...

@nickiteddy I would agree with the advice of @Sai use the concentrate all over your face you might find it lasts slightly longer than the 28 days too. Use the day and night cream in the same amounts. Leave a few mins for the serum to sink in. Hope you enjoy using the productsRead More...

Translation Option??

Hi Ladies, I have noticed that some posts are in languages other than English and I would love to know what is being discussed in those threads, does anyone know if the YGS site might be adding a translate button similar to what is found on Facebook so we could all be involved in all the discussions?
Replies 11
I went looking for a post like that and I did see one. A translate button would open up for others to be able to join in or even offer opinions based on their experience. Hopefully it will be easy to add.Read More...

SPF in moisturiser

Hi, reading through the information in relation to the daily moisturiser with 30 SPF, it states it can be applied every 2 hours as an sunscreen. Surely if its in a moisturiser, then its diluted, therefore not so effective as an normal SPF? Could someone clarify please.

Exfoliating wash or scrub?

Hey! I've just started using this brand a few days ago and so far so good! 😊 I bought both the exfoliating wash and scrub (in addition to several other products) and they feel the same to me but seems like exfoliating wash left my face a bit dryer tonight but that may be cause I tried it after trying the scrub last night. What's the difference between these two products? I think my skin is comination, so my nose gets oily but everyelse gets a bit dry sometimes, especially in winter. Which...

Hi @Iqraali They are both very gentle and reveal beautiful healthy skin. I would use the scrub only twice a week. You have amazing clear skin already 😊Read More...

Is there a Boots website or locations in USA?

I am just curious if Boots Beauty is only in the UK aside from its partnerships with retailers like Walgreens and Target? I have tried looking for a USA division website to no avail. Do they have locations in the US? What about YGS? Plans to grow into the US with direct opportunities at all or will they always be available only to UK residents? Thanks!

@JenS2018 Unfortunately Boots isn't in the US and I don't think there are any plans to open stores there at the moment. I know you can get some Boots brands in Walgreens! Were there any particular brands you were after?Read More...

Is it too much too soon?

I immediately fell in love with the SBC from the first use! I immediately went out to purchase the Acne cleanser, toner, daycream and night cream. Even though I am using products as requested, I have been noticing now my skin is getting worse! Is it too much product too soon?
Replies 18
@Greenfeline2004 The YGS Balancing Skin Concentrate is designed to re-balance the skin, which includes improving cell turnover and reducing sebum (oil) levels. Both of these are linked to spot formation, so with continued use the product should help reduce breakouts. It is normal to experience a few breakouts when you are changing your skincare routine. It usually happens in the first week. If no irritation occurs I would recommend to persevere for one more week as you start noticing results...Read More...

Anti aging

Skin concentrate

was wondering if the skin concentrate is something you use daily on a permanent basis or is it only for the 28 days?

@Ca0 I use it daily.

What do I need to start off?

I'm completely new to this. I've picked up the facewash, balancing skin concentrate and the overnight cream. I'm interested to try out the 28 day trial. Do I need to get anything else from the range for the best results? Thanks x
