I saw a small display of L`oreal`s Youth Code products. I almost didn`t see it, because it was quite inconspicuous. Each of the products shown above was $3.99
For the amount that you get, I think it`s kind of expensive, considering you could just get a large tub of lotion for around $4. lol
From left to right:
Eye Cream Daily Treatment - 0.33 fl. oz. (10 mL)
Day/Night Cream - 0.5 fl. oz.(14g)
Day Lotion SPF 30 - 1 fl. oz. (30 mL)
They`re available on http://drugstore.com for $4.99 each. http://tinyurl.com/7phefme
With that being said, the prices are still a bargain compared to how much the full size products actually cost.
If I`m not mistaken, the full size...
Eye Cream is around $22 for .5 fl. oz. (15 mL)
Day/Night Cream is around $22 for 1.6 fl. oz. (45 g)
Day Lotion is also around $22 for 1.7 fl. oz. (50 mL)
Pound for pound, or in this case, ounce for ounce, you can see that the miniature versions are more bang for your buck. The smaller versions cost less than 5x as much as the full size versions, but they hold much more than 1/5th of product. The smaller eye cream is almost 70% of the regular size. Day/night cream almost 1/3. Day Lotion 70% of the regular size.
Even if you purchase the Starter Set for around $30, it`s still more f a bargain to get all 3 individual products for about $15.
Also, I like getting miniature versions of new products I want to try. Just in case they turn out to be crap, at least I got the smaller, cheaper version, so I`ll feel less guilty if I stop using it, or worse, throw it out.
It`s like throwing away money!
Ok that`s enough math. I`m a numbers person, so it makes me happy to see all the numbers clearly explaining how I got these 3 products at a bargain. I wish that there was a mini version of the Youth Regenerating Skincare Serum Intense Daily Treatment, which is actually the main product of the line, isn`t it?
The serum costs about $22 for 1 fl. oz. (30 mL), which is definitely expensive to me, and doesn`t come in a bundle, as far as I know. I think it probably also doesn`t have really have a chance of regenerating skin, so I do not have any desire to purchase it.
Let`s see if any wrinkle diminishing and skin rejuvenating actually occurs. I kind of doubt it, and it`s probably just very well executed marketing, and quite beautiful packaging that is designed to make us believe, and hope, that these products will actually do anything. I think what I can reasonably expect is that they`ll perform as well as a decent moisturizer. However, it`s relatively inexpensive (Keep in mind, still expensive when compared to any other lotion in a tub, if the performance of these products end up performing like a lotion. I think they probably will end up acting like regular lotion and just be moisturizing.) and I had to buy something at Walgreen`s when I went in to make an exchange.
I`ve used these for the last couple of days. I think the lotion you can just apply whenever you want. The eye cream and day/night cream both state to apply day/morning & night. I don`t have time to put on the eye cream and the day/night cream in the morning, but I do try to make an effort to do it once I get home from work, and again before I go to bed. That shouldn`t make too much of a difference, I think?
The eye cream does feel good upon application, but why shouldn`t it? It`s creamy and there`s a metal applicator, which gives a cooling effect, of course it`ll feel good, that`s just common sense. I secretly hope that the eye cream does get rid of the wrinkle underneath my right eye. It`s such a deep wrinkle compared to my left eye, which doesn`t really have a wrinkle. I wouldn`t mind it so much, but I think anything that`s not symmetrical on my face is unattractive.
All the products have this sort of rosy scent. It`s okay, I`m indifferent about it and also not good at describing scents. So far, no result yet, but hey nothing bad`s happened to my skin and I`m happy about that too.
When I revisited the Walgreen`s for snacky things, I noticed that the Eye Cream was sold out. That did seem to be the most enticing product out of the three, for me at least. I don`t think these mini products are being sold at any other drugstore at the moment. However, in my google search, I saw them on http://drugstore.com, but the Eye Cream is no longer available, sadly. The Day/Night Cream and Day Lotion are both $4.99, so that`s still quite reasonable. http://drugstore.com requires $25 for free shipping, and you can get 6% back from http://mrrebates.com or http://ebates.com, I believe.
