Product Name: YSL Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow

Fast lifestyle, late night…YSL Beaute knows that every woman needs to start with a perfect base to integrate seamlessly with the demands of her daily schedule.

YSL’s solution is Top Secrets: an innovative skincare range for make-up lovers that offers multitasking products for your complexion.

Now… a new secret is now revealed: INSTANT MOISTURE GLOW, a take anywhere, ultra-lightweight blur perfecting moisturiser bursting with hydration for up to 72 hours.

“Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow has an ultra-sensorial texture that durably hydrates the feel of skin and carries the blurring technology of an invisible foundation. Within seconds, skin adopts the feel of softness of satin” – Lloyd Simmonds, Create Director YSL Beaute

Applied all over the face before make-up, Instant Moisture Glow instantly hydrates the feeling of skin and locks in moisture. Applied throughout the day, it offers a burst of hydration on-the-go to leave the skin looking radiant.

One streamlined product for the woman that wants it all and has no time to wait.

My Experience: I got a sample of this product in a gorgeous mascara set gifted to me. I wasn’t quite sure if it was a cream or a primer as the title doesn’t really tell you explicitly what the intended use is for. I googled it read the description and benefits as above. I applied it before my makeup as instructed and the results were… read on.

Fragrance: I was initially slightly concerned that the product was fragranced, as I don’t tend to use fragranced products simply because of a bad experience I had many years back. However the smell wasn’t potent and it did in fact smell gorgeous, very similar to the YSL Mon Paris but much more subtle.

Results: Amazing AF!  The product glided on to my skin and was extremely light and made my skin feel super silky. My makeup finish looked professional. Now I’m a once a day makeup applier and as a nurse I don’t have time for top ups other than a bit of lip gloss. In addition I work long hours and my makeup is on my skin for up to 16 hours a day. I noticed after day one, my makeup looked just a fresh as when I applied it at 6:00 am in the morning. I loved the glow it gave and made my skin look radiant, healthy and well hydrated, concealer didn’t sink into the creases under my eyes and my skin did not appear oily after a sweaty 13 hour shift.

Price: My initial sample of 5mls came in a gift box costing £25, with that I got a full sized mascara and eyeliner which is great value for money for it being YSL. 3 weeks on I’m still using the 5ml sample size. I have however gone on to buy the full sized version of 40ml, priced at £29.50, which although it seems expensive the 5ml is proof that a little goes a long way.

Final Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this product to all makeup lovers, perhaps get the mascara gift set if you want to try it, which is great value for money. If you don’t like it, you will most certainly love the mascara and eyeliner…which makeup lover wouldn’t?

In addition the YSL Top Secrets Instant Moisture Glow, can be used for those who are not big on makeup, but are still conscious about healthy looking skin.

My only con to this product, is that it has a slight fragrance to it and might not be for everyone, especially those with sensitive skin, a patch test is recommended.
