I’ve had the opportunity to try the Sustainable Youth Total Immune System, which includes the Revitalizing Serum, the Elasticity Cream and the Elastifirm Oral Supplements.I’ve been using the products for more than a month now it’s time to tell you all about them.
All of the products, packaged in containers made with sustainable materials, contain organic ingredients only. The key ingredient is Alasta, which is derived from the rind of the Aloe Vera plant. Alasta is said to reduce inflammation throughout your body which then increases skin firmness and elasticity as well as improving joint and muscles health. It also has antiaging properties as it fights free radical damage and collagen decrease.
Size/Price: 60 capsules (one month supply), $65.00
What I liked: easy to swallow, natural ingredients
What I didn’t like: may forget to take the tablets sometimes
The Supplement bottle contains 60 tablets, all made with organic ingredients only, to be taken twice a day. The capsules aren’t too big so they are easy to swallow and because the packaging is very light, it is also easy to carry it in your bag. The only problem you may have is to forget to take them sometimes. I took them everyday, although on some days later than usual because I kept forgetting! Sesame of Viva Woman also reported that the supplement helped with her backache.
Size/Price: 30ml, $80.00
What I liked: absorbs easily, natural ingredients, tightens and softens skin
What I didn’t like: can be drying for dry skin
The serum has a lightweight, liquid consistency that absorbs easily into the skin and doesn’t leave any greasy or sticky residue, although it feels slightly drying. Straight after application, my skin feels tight and very smooth. The scent is natural, fresh and pleasant. Apart from Alasta, it contains, although in small quantities, an alcohol derived from sugar cane that is used not only to preserve the product but to give skin a fresh feeling as well. It also contains several natural oils, like Glycine soja oil (an oil derived from wild soybeans) that have emollient properties.
Size/Price: 30ml, $80.00
What I liked: absorbs easily, natural ingredients, moisturizes normal to oily skin well
What I didn’t like: not moisturizing enough for dry skin
Just after the serum, I apply the cream, both twice a day. The cream has a light consistency and a natural, fresh smell as well. The pump makes it easy to get just the right amount of product you need. It absorbs quickly and moisturizes my combination skin well, leaving it feeling very soft and looking radiant. But I think this cream is too light and not moisturizing enough for people with dry skin. Nikki of Askmewhats, who has dry skin, thinks so too. Check out her review here.
Like the serum, this contains small concentrations of alcohol as well to preserve the cream and give skin a smooth feel. It also contains several natural oils, like Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil and Sweet Almond Oil, all of which have moisturizing properties.
My Overall Experience
All of the products work really well for my combination skin and I can see a slight improvement in how my skin looks and feels. My skin feels very soft, smooth and clearer and I noticed it is a bit firmer too.
I can’t say much about the antiaging effects because I’m still quite young. I only have a few fine lines on my forehead and around the eyes, which are still there but smoother and less noticeable than before.
I wouldn’t say the products work miracles and if that is what you’re expecting you will be disappointed. I could definitely see an improvement, but not a dramatic one. But overall, the products work and give good results.
All the products can be purchased on Sustainable Youth website: www.sustainableyouthproducts.com. The prices are a bit expensive but at the moment Sustainable Youth is doing a promotion and you can get all three products for $150.00 (reduced from $225.00). The single products are reduced too: $55 for the supplements and $65.00 each for the serum and cream.
If you’re not interested in the whole set, you can always purchase just one or two of the products. You will still see the results, although it will take longer.
Overall, Sustainable Youth Total Immune System works very well for me. Although it didn’t dramatically improve my skin, the results are noticeable: my skin is moisturized, soft, brighter and tighter. Fine lines didn’t disappear but are less visible and smoother. I would recommend them to people with normal/combination/oily skin, but the system may not be moisturizing enough for dry skin.
