Yase Cosmetics Serum Day Cream Review

Yase Cosmetics: My First Experience With Skincare So Natural It Needs to Be Kept in the Fridge

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!

Yase Cosmetics Serum Day Cream ReviewI’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.

Let’s take a closer look!

Yase Cosmetics Serum With Rhodochrosite (€59)

img_4175_copiaYase 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

Yase Cosmetics Rhodochrosite Serum ReviewThe 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 Hematite Day Cream ReviewYase 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

Yase Cosmetics Hematite Day Cream ReviewThe 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. Yasecosmetics.com offers free worldwide shipping and a 14-day money-back guarantee.

    I have never used skincare products that specified that they needed to be kept in the fridge with the exception of the LUSH face masks. They really go off easily.
    And I have to say, you are reading the ingredient list very well.

    I haven’t used any natural cosmetics that needed to be kept in the fridge and I love this concept and especially their ingredients. I love argan and jojoba oil for face products. I have oily skin, yet I use lots of oils and serums and my skin is at its best condition! Great review 🙂

      I love using oils, too, but usually only at night.

    The only skincare that I have used that needs to be kept in the fridge is Lush face masks. These products sound really good. My skin is usually drier so I think I could benefit from them.

    I’m really liking the short ingredient list but I never came across a product that needed to be kept in the fridge so these intrigue me. I also love that they have free worldwide shipping, too many brands are limited to their home country or Europe only so this is great news.

    This was so interesting to read! I love natural skincare and I’m a vegetarian too, recycle etc. So I always look for way to keep the eco-friendly/natural life to skincare and beauty products too! So definitely have to look this brand up! Xx

    So do they claim that the minerals these products contain, rhodochrosite and hematite, have any specific effect? I’m curious about that.
    I don’t think I would be able to finish a 30 ml serum in 3 months, I’m sure I wouldn’t actually, so it makes it a bit wasteful for someone like me!

      There are no claims on the packaging, but here’s what their website states:
      Rhodochrosite – “The extract enhances collagen synthesis and has relaxing properties. Through stimulation of micro-circulation, it participates in nourishment of the skin’s support tissues. As a result, the complexion’s structure clearly improves, becoming firmer and smoother.”
      Hematite – “Mineral with high iron content. It directly activates key enzymes in skin cells and intensifies procollagen synthesis in them. It restores proper skin colour and firmness. It rebuilds skin tissue.”
      Since they expire in 3 months, I think these products are better suited for someone who uses the same skincare every day, day and night (so, basically everyone I know outside the beauty blogging world).

    These sound so interesting! The mineral extract is an intriguing ingredient. I have never tried any fresh skincare products before.

    I already store some products in my fridge. But since these HAVE to be stored in the fridge I’m kind of hesitant to try ’em because what if you travel, right.

    I’ve used natural skincare products before, however not those that are so natural they need to be kept in the fridge – how interesting! The lack of obvious scent is an interesting element of such natural products, and thanks for the brand introduction 🙂

    Oo interesting that it needs to be fridged! The only ones I know of is the LUSH masks and I never bought any cause it takes a while for me to get back home and I always worry the masks would go bad between transit! Although I’ve been meaning to put my eye cream in the fridge to help depuff it! I’m really curious how hematite extract smells now, thanks for the review!

    Keeping in the fridge? I haven’t used anything that I have to keep in the fridge, I have TBS sorbet which I put in fridge in summer to get that cooling feeling but nothing more. I am not really fan of natural skincare products as I had a bad experience before. Good to hear that this duo doesn’t make your skin oilier, it is the last thing I would want 🙂

    This brand sounds interesting! I’ve never heard of them before but it sounds like the have great all natural products. Can’t believe you even have to keep them in the fridge. The consistency of that serum looks really really beautiful on the back of your hand. Great review!

    LOL @ not politely asking the bug to leave. I am yet to use a product that requires storing in the fridge. Sounds like its an amazing one. I love the consistency and the packaging.

    These sound interesting! I think I’d struggle to use them up within the 3 month expiry due to that pesky blogging habit-I change up products too often at the moment! They do sound like they’re full of all the good stuff, however!
