What if your nighttime routine took only a few minutes? What if, with the power of only two products, you were able to break down the residue of your day and simultaneously build up your skin? With Youth To The People’s new Superberry Dream Cleansing Balm and the iconic, award-winning Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask, getting ready for bed has never been easier.
STEP 1: CLEAN SLATE
Great for all skin types and skin goals, the Superberry Dream Cleansing Balm functions as both a cleanser and a stellar makeup remover. According to YTTP’s Director of Field Sales + Education Jacob Tomás del Rosario, full-coverage, long-wear, and waterproof makeup are no match for this cleansing balm.
“This [balm] is a beautiful option for removing even the most stubborn makeup,” says del Rosario.
Rosario recommends placing a nickel to a quarter size of the cleansing balm into dry palms and then massaging onto a dry face. After a few seconds of massaging, the balm will emulsify and transform into an oil. Once you feel as though all makeup and debris have been lifted away from the skin, wet your hands.
“Continue massaging until [the balm] emulsifies again, into more of a milky texture,” explains del Rosario. “Then rinse with water and pat dry as you would with any standard cleanser.”
The Superberry Dream Cleansing Balm contains an innovative blend of three different weights of oil-soluble hyaluronic acid. This means that the balm is able to break down dirt and debris effectively without any foaming or lather, and leaves the skin with a plump, smooth feeling—all thanks to multidimensional hydration.
STEP 2: DREAM STATE
The second and final step is to apply the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask, which can double as both a moisturizer and an overnight leave-on mask. Del Rosario suggests applying a simple, even layer of the mask onto the skin.
The Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask is packed with moisturizing ingredients that protect the skin from transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and antioxidants that protect the skin from free radicals.
“We have a blend of four vital hydrators [in the mask]—hyaluronic acid, betaine, glycerin, and squalane—that work to flood the skin with water and lock it in,” says del Rosario. “And then of course, in the Superberry blend [found in both the Dream Balm and Dream Mask] are maqui, acai, and goji berries—all super antioxidant-dense. They stabilize and reduce the general look of oxidative stress in the skin.”
Both the cleansing balm and the mask have rich, whipped consistencies, but don’t leave a filmy excess on the skin. The ultra-hydrating and conditioning ingredients in both products enhance each other, working synergistically to deliver clean, clarified skin and long-lasting moisture that carries over into the morning and beyond. Your minimalist PM routine with maximum effects awaits!
