Youth to the People is a skincare line that creates skincare products for all with the planet in mind. With the products from YTTP the ingredients are what matter most. Recently, they sent me over a new product that they dropped, the Mandelic Acid + Superfood Unity Exfoliant. This product is sold in 4 ounce bottles and retails for $38. This is a leave on exfoliant that uses a combination of three exfoliants to leave skin feeling smoother and not irritated. NAT received this product at no cost for review purposes.
Firstly when this company says with the environment in mind… they mean it. The bottles are always glass, which I really like. If you aren’t familiar with why – that’s a whole nother issue. Anyway, This exfoliant uses three different exfoliants to gently slough away dead skin. 3% Mandelic Acid (which is a new ingredient to me) 2% Salicylic Acid or BHA and 1% Glucotalactonate. Additionally, this lightweight liquid includes licorice root as well as glucosamine.

The instructions for use say that you simply apply this to clean face with a cotton round and then follow with moisturizer and SPF. This is like water – extremely lightweight with an earthy, herbal smell that I really like (there’s no added fragrance whatsoever!) This product is also cruelty free, vegan and free of phthalates as well in case you were wondering. I found that this product did an excellent job of smoothing my skin without causing redness which is always a concern of mine with exfoliants. This is definitely gentle enough that I would recommend it for people with sensitive skin and it’s deserving of it’s price tag as well! If you are in the market for an effective and clean exfoliant that is perfect for sensitive skin this may be your new holy grail!
