Sustainable Youth brings science and comfort to your skin

Sustainable Youth

If you were offered products from Sustainable Youth®, wouldn’t you be curious about them? I certainly was since at my age I’d like to sustain whatever youthfulness I still have. What I received is SUSTAINABLE YOUTH ULTRA CREAMY CLEANSING LOTION and SUSTAINABLE YOUTH ANYTIME LIFT EYE TREATMENT.

When you open those white boxes you’ll see this, which gives you a clue as to their philosophy and ingredients:

Sustainable Youth Anytime Life Eye and Creamy Cleaning Lotion

Sustainable Youth Anytime Life Eye and Creamy Cleaning Lotion

SUSTAINABLE YOUTH® uses an ingredient called ALASTA® in all of their products. Alasta® is a patented scientific discovery of the most potent immunostimulatory and concentrated ingredient derived from the rind of the Aloe Vera leaf. Alastra’s job is to improve skin elasticity and firmness through its ability to boost the body’s overall immune system performance. Sounds to me like they are calling my name!!

Sustainable Youth Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion with alasta® is just a terrific cleanser. I’m loving this gentle cleanser that rehydrates my skin. It is incredibly creamy and my face just sighs when I apply it. It’s a pH balanced cleanser that doesn’t strip skin of moisture. My skin feels soft and hydrated after using it.

There’s no foaming at all with this cleanser, it’s like cleansing with the finest moisture product. But it gets my skin very clean. I often use it with my new Michael Todd Soniclear or if I’m rushing I’ll just wash and wipe off with a soft cloth (I like the one from The Body Shop). Either way my face is ready for the next step without ever feeling tight.

This also contains Cocoa Seed Butter which is rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Pro-vitamin B-5, otherwise known as panthenol, penetrates into the skin’s lower layers, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Also a proprietary blend of organically grown natural extracts including extracts of cucumber, white mulberry, green tea, licorice root and fig. Even with this wonderful cocktail of ingredients, there’s no fragrance to it.

SUSTAINABLE YOUTH® LIFT EYE TREATMENT with alasta® is a treatment serum that was created to help lessen the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines and wrinkles. I’m unfortunately stuck with all three of those but mostly crow’s feet and fine lines. Since this helps to minimize dark circles and under eye puffiness I am only using it during the day. As soon as my face is cleansed, I’ll apply this gently under my eyes and smooth it until it’s absorbed. I found it did more for me during the day than at night. You can also take this with you to reapply during the day.

Anytime Lift Eye Treatment uses ingredients that work synergistically with alasta®. It contains a potent blend of natural gums and polymers to mechanically smooth your skin. It also contains vegetable proteins to repair tissue damage and promote regeneration. In addition it uses potent natural plant herb blends to neutralize free radicals and prevent further damage.

As we age the skin around our eyes becomes less plump making our eye area look more sunken and looser. What I like about this is that it can be used over makeup. What I don’t like so much is the $60 cost. While all the products in the lineup for Sustainable Youth® are costly, this one seems a little out of line at least for me. I highly recommend the Ultra Creamy Cleansing Lotion though for a luxury feel to your face and a wonderful way to start your skincare regimen. — Marcia

Comments

  1. These products sound really nice for anti-aging. I agree that the eye cream is a bit expensive, but if it works it might be worth it if it lasts for a long time.

    Hi Kelly, my favorite is the Cleanser which has a feel like an expensive one. The eye serum is on the light side but is great for daytime.
