YBP Plant Remedy Skin Elixir

As the years pass by, I've found myself drawn towards self care rituals with an enthusiasm like never before. There's a simple joy in pampering yourself, respecting your wellness and enjoying the few moments of peace and mindfulness that come with it. For this reason, I chose to start practising Gua Sha routines after Swati initially introduced me to it.

I know I'm late to the party, but over the next few posts I'll be sharing my treasured pieces from YBP that I have been using ever since they launched (but of course failed to showcase it here on time, 😅).

YBP is a brand whose philosophy I resonated with, they work on supporting your skin with products that promote overall well-being as beauty, not unrealistic gimmicks that promise magical transformations.
Today, I'll be talking about the very first YBP skincare that I bought. Swati and I have both used their Color Creams which are reviewed HERE.

 

This 3-in-1 concentrated plant phytonutrient formula can help any skin condition by penetrating deep into the skin and strengthening your skin’s lipid barrier and response to the sun.

Plant Remedy is made with only 4 carefully chosen ingredients. Each ingredient is sourced straight from its source in North Africa and plays a very significant role in our formula.

Each ingredient in this blend is chosen specifically for its medicinal properties, not for its scent. And together these 4 beauties make our Plant Remedy Skin Elixir. They are capable of helping repair, de-stagnate, and calm your skin and mind.

Use on clean damp skin.


The oil comes packaged in a blue tinted glass bottle with dropper, and I have travelled with it without any messy leaks. YBP uses raw handmade, Khadi paper from Gandhi Ashram Co-op India to house all their products in, which I think is a commendable initiative.

Skin elixir isn't your average face oil, it's an experience- one that makes me look forward to applying it every day! Right from the beautiful green colour to it's fresh sweet herbaceous fragrance, this potion is a treat to the senses. Moroccan argan oil, blue tansy oil, geranium oil and rosemary CO2 extract are blended together into a light weight oil that has found its place in both my am as well as my pm routine. You can see the oil in action in this video HERE.

I start by dampening my skin with a mist and then warming up just 3 drops between my palms and patting it on top to lock the hydration in. The dissipating scent relaxes the mind as soon as you warm up the oil. Being light-weight it sinks in nicely, leaving a healthy sheen behind.

In my pm routine, I sometimes add a couple of drops more to leave a little slip on my skin when I plan to follow up with Gua Sha.

I feel that the Plant remedy's elixir oil is like a nourishing skin food that can be used by all skin types to keep it healthy and well maintained. 

In the past whenever I got a few bumps occasionally, I stripped down my skin care routine to just the PR elixir and it calmed them down well.
Since I have bought their Calendula Salve now, I use that in the morning & the plant remedy oil in the evening on damp skin.

During a particularly stubborn phase, I reached out to the YBP team and they advised me to use skin elixir as a hot compress over the problem area and I was amazed with how quickly my bumps subsided! This is a tip I'm going to keep in my bag for sure!
Since this oil has repairing ingredients, in my opinion it would help to soothe skin issues like rosacea, dermatitis, eczema & redness to an extent. 

Skin elixir oil is always going to be a part of my stash, being such a versatile product. It can be used as an everyday essential, or an occasional treatment but you can rest assured that it will support your skin & help in keeping it healthy. 

Price : 2450 INR for 30ml
