L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence Review

5 years ago / beauty

All about Ferment Essence and anti-aging!

I've been a little obsessed with anti-aging lately. Maybe it's cause I'm been watching so much Devious Maids and the actress who plays Genevieve Delatour is like 70 in real life but she looks so impossibly good!

Right??? She sometimes says she's 46 in the show haha and I also want to be like her when I grow up! Ok fine, maybe not shave 24 years off my real age... just 14 will do :joy:

I was recently introduced to L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence which is the line's star product since its launch in 2012 (yes, it's the one you see endorsed by Rui En!)

The number 1 essence in Singapore, the formula has since been improved with 98% pure Ferment Essence. Otherwise known as “酵素”, this ferment essence helps to activate skin's youth with the renewing power of fermented seeds. I’ve heard that this is the No. 1 essence in Singapore and that ferment essence is extremely popular in Korea, Japan and Taiwan where it is frequently used in health and beauty products!

We are all familiar with the metabolism of our body, but what about our skin's metabolism?

Let's put it this way... when our skin's metabolism is normal, our cells function well, damage is repaired, cells self-exfoliate and collagen productions remains constant.

However, skin metabolism slows down and cell renewal decreases as we age and as a result, our skin will hence show signs of aging such as loss of firmness, fine lines, rougher skin texture.

The L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence uses fermented seeds extracted at 98% purity to stimulate skin metabolism and accelerate the skin's self-renewal.

The result?

Bouncy, radiant skin.

More specifically,

  • With 1 Drop: Instant smoothness and softness.
  • In 1 Week: Skin texture is improved and more refined
  • In 1 Month: Skin regain youthfulness and radiance

I've been using the essence for a week now and my skin is smoother and definitely more radiant - in a healthy glow sorta way.

I use it both in the morning and evening, after cleansing and toning and before applying any other products. I like how the dropper design of the bottle allows me to apply only 2 to 3 drops of the pre-essence on to my entire face.

The L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence has a lightweight and fluid texture that glides smoothly and easily. It gets absorbed almost immediately (usually it takes only a few seconds for me) and leaves skin with a soft finish without stickiness.

I then follow with serum and moisturiser and I have realised it also helps the other products to be applied more easily.

Regardless of skin concerns, the Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence can be easily incorporated into most beauty regimes - look forward to soft and bouncy skin if you're in your 20s, clear and radiant skin if you're in your 30s and firm and smooth skin if you've hit your 40s.

The L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence retails at $41.90 and is available at all leading Watsons, Guardian, Unity stores and major supermarkets.

LIMITED! For the month of January only, you get to purchase two bottles of Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence for only $56.90!
