Whether you love or loathe your fine lines, it is no secret that anti-ageing products are one of the most sought-after ingredients in the beauty market. While some women choose to embrace their ageing appearance, some feel more confident with a smoother, shinier and stress free look—no matter what your choices are, as long you’re comfortable with your own skin, you do you, boo. However, if you’ve exceeded a certain amount of age, and just now begin to look for a way to tackle your ageing problems, it is never too late.  

Same goes to you who’s in your 20’s—it is never too early to incorporate an anti-ageing product into your skincare routine. I mean, the phrase ‘’it’s better late than never’’ exists for a reason. Especially these days where our skin is frequently exposed to the harsh UV lights, fouly environment, pollution, blue light and green light, the ageing process could make your fine lines, wrinkles and dull skin visible. So by wearing the right anti-ageing ingredients can somewhat tackle this problem if not slowing the process. Anyway, when it comes to investing in anti-ageing products, you would notice that most of them consist of only high-end brands, and most of the treatment from the medi-spa will likely break your wallet. So, if someone could pinpoint the nearest product that’ll help me feel you and stay young? 

Enter; the greatest of all time, L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Collection. Thanks to this trustee brand, they came out with a solution that will help regenerate the skin and protect each barrier from the external aggressors. The essence was made firmly using ultrasonic extraction techniques—it is highly recommended for all of you who’s looking to restore the skin elasticity. Beauty Insider took the lead and tried out the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Collection for you and here’s our honest review. 

First, What Is ‘’Ferment Essence?’’ 

Fermented ingredients were first introduced in the famous Korean skin care regime—they’re famous among the Korean beauty cult. But what exactly does ferment essence do? To summarize, the ferment process is an act of adding and mixing good microorganisms like bacteria and fungal into natural ingredients. The microorganism will slowly release their enzymes that will further break into small molecules in the raw ingredient. These ingredients will then help to fight and combat external aggressors for making its way from your skin fiber. Most of the time, your skin barrier alone cannot absorb all of the active ingredients that you’ve layered on top of your skin, because too often the ingredients that you used came in bigger sizes of molecular. So, through the fermentation process, the microorganism will separate the molecules into smaller sizes, so your skin will easily absorb the ingredients smoothly into the deepest layer. 

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Collection

First and foremost, the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Collection consist of three products—the Fresh Mix Ferment Pre-Essence Mask, Skin Activating Ferment Eye Essence, and Skin Activating Ferment Pre-Essence. They were first introduced to the crown in the year of 2017, and since then this range has made its mark all over the world as the most-trusted products to tackle sagging skin, fine lines, dull skin and others. Basically, if you’re one of those who are concerned about the visible ageing process, these products are literally heaven-made for you. These magical ranges have been proved by their users to keep their skin looking youthful, prolong smoothness and clean canvas. 

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Ingredients

Just like any other essence and serums out there, these L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence ranges consist of almost 80% water as their main ingredient. Other ingredients include the advanced ferment essence which is Bifida Ferment Lysate. They also consist of other skin booster ingredients like Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citric Acid, and Sulfonic Acid—which are heavily known to fix the skin barrier, control sebum production and dissolve uneven skin tones. What’s more, healthy fruit extracts like Papain and Pineapple also play their parts in these products. As promising as these ingredients look, they also contain additional fragrances and few other active alcohol insiders. So to be honest, if you suffer from sensitive skin problems, we suggest you stay away from these products, if you’d like to, you can ask your doctor’s advice. We found out that this Ferment Pre-Essence Ingredients were made specially at a certified chemical company, too, with a forte in wrinkles reductions, reducing rough textures and restoring elastin altogether. Not going to lie, they brought out some of the big guns in manufacturing these ranges but our only concerns are the alcohol inside. We recommend you try a few patches of test before using it completely on your skin. 

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Texture 

Now, texture-wise, and how it feels on your skin. Overall, we think it is super tolerable due to the lightweight condition and feathery light when it is layered overall your skin surface. As the ingredient promotes, it leans more towards watery and serum-like texture. Which makes them absorb as quickly as it can be onto your skin. If you’re dealing with an oily skin appearance, it is safe to say that the products weren’t like clogged your pores because they don’t leave any greasy or stickiness once rubbed on your skin. So, in short, their texture received five over five stars. Thanks to its watery texture that glides smoothly all around. 

How To Use L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence

Now, knot the steps. How and when should one incorporate this  L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence into their routine? Just as its name suggests, the ‘’pre-essence’’ part was supposed to be used after your cleanser and toner. And before any heavier skincare application like moisturizers, primer and sun protection. Though, if you have dry skin, we suggest you leave a couple minutes to let the pre-essence absorb completely into your skin before applying any thick skin products. This way, it doesn’t fully mess with the condition of your skin or leading it up to any sensitivity. As in how to use the product, just simply layered and covered your skin evenly throughout. It doesn’t have to take a lot of products, a minimum 2 to 3 drops are enough. 

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Packaging 

Aside from all that, we will be giving another round of applause for this L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence due to its packaging. The products were stored perfectly in a thick, black glass bottle, which for me, is super hygienic and easy to use. Though the glass bottle could easily drop and smash into pieces it accidentally slipped out of your hands. You can easily read the ingredients at the back of the bottle too, as they attached to it. The bottle looks elegant, classy and overall fits their aesthetics. 

The Final Verdict

Now, the moment that you’re all been waiting for, what’s our overall takes regarding this product range? To be honest, we love it. We love how it does to our skin, restoring elasticity, even our dull skin tones, dissolving the fine lines and wrinkles and bringing back hydration balance onto our skin. However, as we mentioned earlier, our only concern is the active and additional chemical ingredients inside. It is not permissible for those with sensitive skin to use these products as it will further irritate the skin and cause inflammation. But other than that, we’re totally getting behind these L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence range.
