The Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite and Day Cream With Hematite put a big smile on my face! 😉 Oh, in case you’re wondering, the lipstick I’m wearing is the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour in 154 Expérimenté
How much of a nature lover are you?
Personally, I recycle religiously, love taking long walks in the country, like animals (as long as they have a spinal cord, LOL!), and try to limit my use of water, air conditioning, and heating…
I’m not a vegetarian, my idea of a perfect vacation is not going camping in the woods, and if a bug decides to show up in my apartment, I won’t just politely ask it to leave, if you know what I mean.
When it comes to skincare, I think my level of love for all things natural is pretty similar: I don’t exclusively use products with natural ingredients, but I definitely like to use them.
So when Yase Cosmetics, a skincare brand that only uses natural ingredients, asked me if I wanted to try their new serum and day cream, I gladly accepted. What I found particularly interesting about their products was that they’re completely free from any artificial preservatives and need to be kept in the fridge – which is a first for me!
I’ve been using the Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite and Day Cream With Hematite for almost two months now, both in combination and each one on its own. They both absorb easily without leaving any residue on the skin and sit well under makeup.
Every Yase Cosmetics product has a 3-month shelf life. The expiration date is stamped on the bottom
Let’s take a closer look!
Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite (€59)
Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Rhodochrosite Extract, Panthenol, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba (Guar) Gum, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Extract, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Mentha Viridis (Spearmint) Leaf Oil, Limonene
The Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite has a runny gel consistency
The Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite is a lightweight transparent serum with a pretty strong spearmint scent. I personally don’t mind it and can only smell it during application.
Based on my (limited) knowledge of cosmetics ingredients, if I had to classify this product, I’d say that it’s an antioxidant serum (Rhodochrosite Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Coffea Arabica Seed Extract) with good hydrating properties (Glycerin, Panthenol).
Yase Cosmetics Day Cream With Hematite (€59)
Yase Cosmetics Day Cream With Hematite ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Simmondisa Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Hematite Extract, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate
The Yase Cosmetics Day Cream With Hematite has a pretty firm consistency, but spreads very easily onto the skin
Again, let me start by talking about the scent, which is hardly the most important thing about skincare, but I know it’s a deal-breaker for many. The Yase Cosmetics Day Cream With Hematite is completely fragrance-free (which is ideal if you have sensitive skin), but the hematite extract it contains gives it a pretty peculiar scent, which dissipates a few minutes after application.
Despite I normally only use a serum during the day (no moisturizer), for testing purposes I’ve used the Day Cream With Hematite after the Serum With Rhodochrosite many times, and was really glad to find out that it didn’t make my oily skin oilier.
Since it contains Glycerin, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Panthenol, which are really nice ingredients to keep your skin hydrated and nourished, I think it will also suit drier skin types (but maybe it won’t be enough for the driest) – I definitely see both this and the serum suiting a wide range of skin types.
So the vedict is:
If you want to keep your skin nicely hydrated and fight skin-aging free radicals, and/or want to keep things simple in your skincare regimen, and/or only use natural products, the Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite and the Day Cream With Hematite are definitely worth trying.
