Today I have a review of the Crème Jeunesse (Youth Cream) from Sothys Paris. Their Canadian PR team had me fill out a skin questionnaire and sent me one of the Youth Creams (Crème Jeunesse) to try out based on my answers.
There are five different Youth Cream formulations –Vitality (fix for fine lines, loss of radiance), Wrinkle-Targeting (extend for wrinkles and tone), Firming (revive, loss of firmness, wrinkles),Restructuring (restore for slackening, dark spots, wrinkles), and Redensifying (regenerate for loss of vitality). I received a full sized jar of the Wrinkle-Targeting Youth Cream (Crème Jeunesse Rides Confort), as well as two sample sized tubes of the Redensifying and Restructuring Youth Creams.

The Wrinkle-Targeting Youth Cream is supposed to visibly smooth fine lines and wrinkles, maintain the skin tone and preserve an even complexion.
Sothys Youth Creams / Crèmes Jeunesse contain BP3 Tri-Complex which combines two botanical active ingredients with new generation peptides […]taking a double action on the signs of aging: 1. Fight against oxidative stress. 2. Fight the signs of chronological aging. The polyphenols come from Saffron flowers.
I started using the Youth Cream in the mornings for a few days on its own, before combining it with my usual morning serums. I then started using it at night on its own for a few days, before combining it with my evening serums.
The Youth Cream has a very mild scent – it reminds me of a cream that my grandmother had when I was a child – although I cannot recall what cream it was. It is mild enough that it doesn’t bother me.
It is a rich facial cream, the comfort texture is geared more for drier skins and the light texture for normal to oily skin. I have the comfort texture and it is perfect for the colder weather as my skin tends to be dry at this time of year. I think that it would be too heavy for my skin in the summer months.
I think that the Youth Cream works well for smoothing out fine lines, and it works very well for hydration and combatting dry skin. My only complaint is that when I wear it with certain foundations, I find that I cannot skip setting my foundation with powder, or else my skin will look shiny in the t-zone (especially my nose).
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!
