Youthful Essence



Youthful Essence® features a collection of products intended for at-home “microdermabrasion.” These items are intended for facial resurfacing and the removal of bumps and blemishes. The Youthful Essence® website also offers a “build your own kit” option for people who have specific needs. The sentiment towards this collection of products may be less than positive with some of the low scores in terms of effectiveness it has received on consumer-driven websites. We believe this may be accounted for by the fact that these items lack certain essential ingredients.

Beenigma - Premium All-In-One Bee Venom Face Cream
We are so pleased to bring this formula to you and have found that Beenigma is the premium choice among Bee Venom face creams in the entire world. New Zealand, where the premium Beenigma face cream is manufactured - is located in the South Pacific at the bottom of the world. There are very few places on earth offering such unspoiled wilderness and purity in flora and fauna. It is this purity and beauty that inspires the very core of the Beenigma cream. The Beenigma story is a new story with old origins. It began in Auckland, New Zealand where the Beenigma team undertook research into Apitherapy and specifically the use of Bee Venom as a means to fight the signs of aging. It has been discovered that topically applied Bee Venom directly nurtures cell regeneration, assists in collagen formation and even helps in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The more the Beenigma team learned, the more they were amazed by Bee Venom and its incredible rejuvenating effects. Read a Full review of Beenigma here.

56 Responses to “YouthfulEssence”

Marla: I’ll do anything to look like Suzan Lucci! She is so beautiful and her skin looks wonderful. I have never tried her creams yet. Can anyone tell me if Youth essence really works? Thanks!

elisabeth: This Youthful Essence thing consists of a “yellow microcrystalline cream, a battery driven vibrating unit with sponge attachments, and various face wash and moisturizers.” You are supposed to use the vibrating thingy to work the moisturizers into ur skin. I figured i would try it out, i like susan Lucci and all, but this really didn’t work any better than a good exfoliant scrub. Plus it was way expensive. I feel like its really just a fancy vibrator and i feel ripped off.

pickles47: at first i realy liked youtful essencces bcs it made my skin so soft and t looked sorta like it was glowing and i felt good about the purchase & used it all the time. but than it made me breakout after 2 weeks about, so now, i don’t use it & my skin is improved a bit.

Clara: I don’t know what compelled me to buy this soap opera show bullshit. It was late at night and I was desperate…It is just as cheap as I thought it would be. It left my skin raw and red. yuck.

Nerrisa: Cannot say there’s anything wrong with this, its fine as an exfoliant, but it doesn’t seem to be any better than the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion I used before. And Youthful Essence costs quite a bit more, I thought it would be beter.


Lucy: When you look at Susan Lucci, and realize she’s got to be like, what, 100? And her skin is to die for, so you figure that anything that’s got her name on it has to work for the obvious reasons…well, Youthful Essence is just another version of those resurfacing thingies, just like the one put out by Neutrogena, only Neutrogena’s cheaper, and doesn’t leave your face all red and blotchy. So save your money on this one, and get the cheaper product, it’s all the same, really.

Ilene: Youthful Essence is in a word, garbage. I have gotten microdermabrasion treatments at the salon before and for a minute it seemed like a good idea. oh what a bad decision this purchase was! it burns, stings and smarts. It’s just awful. This should be left to professionals, not Susan Lucci.

maggieMay: This caused my skin to become red & irritated, even when I adjusted the pressure of the device. It looked like such a cool product, I just HAD to have it, but I’ve been pretty disappointed wiht the Youthful Essence system.

Ann Vera: How often is it best to use Youthful Essence? I have been using it at night, about 5 days a week for a month now & am wondering if I need to use it more often for results?

Patricia: Used the Youthful Essence Cleansing facial wash and I agree it’s very gentle. A bit too gentle for me, I could only use it in the morning because at night it does not remove makeup. Also leave my skin a bit too dry. I stopped using it and moved to something cheaper and better for my needs.

Maude: Been using the Youthful Essence for just a few days, it hurts to use it, would appreciate any tips from some of you longer time users, thank you.

Vivian: I can’t believe I tried this on my skin, and I guess it’s because Susan Lucci endorsed it, and that’s what convinced me. But YouthfulEssence is too strong for my skin, it’s looking like it even have scabs before the healing is done. So next time I’m going to get a gentle scrub that comes ina gel, and not do this routine, ever again.

marianna: Well, how is this Youthful Essence thing supposed to make u look younger? I don’t get it.

stacey millhouse: lately i’ve been hearing alot about Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen. I’ve been wondering whether it might be a smarter idea for me to just find a product with those ingredients in them, rahter than buy this weird apparatus that i don’t understand how it works. Anybody have any advice on this?

Carla: UGh, Youthful Essence was just horrible; the only “youthful” part about it was the blemishes it brought to the surface after 10 days. It should be called “Adolescence Essence.” THUMB DOWN

Kelly: How long does it take to do that whole thing, I saw a demo but seems like it takes forever to put on. Is it is the case?

JulyPetersen: The Daily Hand Moisture Protection was okay actually, but not better than something from CVS. Its sad actually that she has to sell this stuff. At least Suzanne Sommers thigh master worked. I feel sorry but I have to give a thumbs down after all.

Thelma: This has made my skin feel SUPER soft & smooth, and thankfully, I have no acne or anything unsightly, except for a few fine lines. how long should it be until these go away?

Babs: I have to say I like how my skin feels after I use YouthfulEssence…it’s really smooth, and I think that the color’s evening out, BUT, you positively cannot use this more than once every 3 days or so, or you’ll end up with a mess. If you end up with raw skin, it’s really your own fault! Take it easy with this stuff, and it works, but if you try to use it every day, you’ll have some sorry results. Just be careful.

Lindsay: IS it safe to use creams containing AHAs while using Youthful Essence?

Teddy: I think that this Youthful Essence is ok, but I did find it hard to use. I mean, if you do it like the instructions say, it’s confusing, and there are too many steps to follow, so that’s a drawback. I like the end results, I just wish it were a simpler process.

sheri: I sort of like the moisturizer that comes with Youthful Essence, it sinks in nicely and is very light and non-comedogenic. But at the same time, I really didn’t care for that weird device, it was almost painful and caused a great deal of redness. most importantly, it did not seem to make any difference whatsoever to my wrinkles or fine lines.

Becky: Susan Lucci’s still got what it takes…she’s just so beautiful, and if I could end looking as good as she does at her age, it would be a happy day. So I bought Youthful Essence, thinking, Yeah! I’m going to age in a great way, too, but I swear, you practically have to be an aesthetician to get all this stuff on in the right order and in the right amount. so maybe I’ll get somebody to help me do this, a neighbor or someone, and we can trade off giving each other treatments.

Teolia: She made me hope that suzan, I fell because of the way she looks, I forgot it could have been surgery that could make her look so good. So I bought the Youthful essence and of course it does not work at all so if I can save you anytime and money ladies I would not feel so bad for falling for it.

Katherine: This Youthful Essence was the biggest waste of money ever, and I wasn’t able to get the customer service number either. I think this might just be a giant scam.

Lizzie: I think that I like this product, Youthful Essence, but it’s a bit pricey for me. Does anyone know of just a scrub that would do the job and not cost so much? I’ve heard Neutrogena makes a sort of gel scrub that you can use every day. Anybody tried it?

Donna: You are not supposed to use this for more than 4 times per week, right? I also read that it is suitable for teenagers, my 13-year-old has acne, should I introduce her to Youthful Essence?

Riley: Well I have only been using this for 2 weeks but I like it so far. My skin is very smooth & soft & it only takes a few minutes to use the Youthful Essence device. Cool product.

AnnieLorie: I liked the little machine that you use with Youthful Essence, but the grainy stuff you have to put on your face first didn’t smell very good, and left my skin quite irritated. Maybe I used too much of it? I wasn’t very clear on how to spread it on myface with the sponges…why not just use your fingers?

Sophia: I bought mine on HSN and got a pretty good price for it and I really enjoy using it. It’s that time of a day where I feel like I can pamper myself. As far as making me look younger, not sure about that but it makes my skin feel smooth and that is good enough for me.

Cadence: I cant be too harsh here since I really admire Ms Lucci and her career and her ability to reinvent herself I hope to do the same thing in my life. My mom sold Mary Kay and she was able to be independent and i want to be like that too. I bought a bunch of these beauty products and they are not my favorite but like I said I just appreciate what she is doing for women.

OLIVIA: NO, Lindsay, it is NOT a good idea to use AHAs on your skin while using Youthful Essence, WAY too harsh! Just try one or the other, I still haven’t decided which is better.

Danielle: I’m pretty sure that Susan Lucci has had plastic surgery. I’m sending this thing back. It made me break out into hives.

Diana: I am confused about how these products are meant to be used togetehr in a system. I am on my lunch break and quickly trying to sort the good from the bad in terms of beauty products and I saw this Susan Lucci Youthful Essence line and I admit I was curious but based on what I am reading here skeptical to say the least. I need something affordable that is going to work and I do like the idea of mixing and matching if it is cheaply made that wont be of any use to me, right? thanks for the advice!

Brittany: This left my skin raw & I followed all instructions. Youthful Essence was not worth the money.


Shelia: Love it. I’m in my mid-50’s & suffer from a faceful of clogged pores. I only use the resurfacing cream with the unit (not the cleansers, etc) & it keeps my face looking wonderful! A bit pricey tho.

CC: I use this for 3 days and off for 2 days. My skin is baby smooth. Pores have been reduced dramatically. Don’t forget to moisturize; this is not a stand alone product. I use Wei day and night creams

Joyce: I was excikted to hear about Youthful Essence and called to order. Upon hearing the great deal…I was told my account would be charged each month thereafter for supplies. The forced sales tactics tell me that the company does not have faith in its product and all their glittzy claims to not let their customers decide for themselves. Yes, they saikd it can be cancelled at any time, but we all know how that goes..numerous letters, phone calls, emaails, and alot of headaches just to get it cancelled. Unfortunately, I am sure I’m not the only customer who feels this way about your forced sales tactics and makes us believe that it’s not cut out to be what you claim.

belini: I have been using this for over a year and think it works great..I have combo skin that’s proned to clog and break out..I only use the crystal cream ALONE, use with your finger tips and gently. I have smooth blimish free skin finally. The tool caused my skin to sag.,so I stopped using it. I only purchase this product every 5 months or so..use it frequently but sparingly. Good Luck

Lorrie: Katie – Youthful Essence Customer Svcs # 1800 394-8565

Jocelyn: Not sure I like YouthFul Essence, my skin is still full of blemishes after 2 months of using. I might call & cancel this,thx for the number. Does anyoneknow what works beter?

Lisa: My skin was improved in no way whatsoever with Youthful Essence, and I really found all those monthly charges to be a huge headache. i called every month to cancel, and kept getting new charges, every month! Finally cancelled my Visa card to make ‘em stop. Anyway, Jocelyn, I like Healthy Pores for clearing up my skin, its not too harsh but my skin is clear & smooth.

Ann: YouthfulEssence is a very ordinary exfoliant. The “tool” has a brief life span, and new batteries do not bring it back to life. Even before it starts to die, the sponge starts coming off of it. Just another high profile commercial with a very disappointing product.

kris: I have been using this and really like it. I use my own cleanser from Clinique. If you overuse this product I could see how you could get raw skin. But used in moderation it is great. I called and canceled the monthly shipments the same day it came in the mail so that I wouldn’t forget. I just buy replacement products at my leisure off of ebay. It only took 2 minutes to cancel, they weren’t pushy or anything. I was really surprised.

Devon: Was also disappointed with Youthful Essence tool, worked fine for maybe 5 weeks and then it died. I replaced the batteries and it only lasted for 3 day! ITs a pretty cheaply made device if you ask me.

Jean: Not only is this an expensive product but the customer service is horrible–noone seems to know what is going on!!!! – Youthful Essence

Kristen: I have used this product now for a year every other day on my face. I think it works great. It leaves my skin soft and an added bonus is that it helped my acne to clear up. The combination of their mask and scrub caused my face to clear up much better than any acne product I have used in the past (includign proactive). I will give you a hint though buy through hsn its cheaper than the youthful essence wqebsite and you can choose your autoship plan depending on how much you use it. As for the device, I’m still using the first device with the same first battery. – Youthful Essence

Fabby: I bought this product years ago, but I use it here and their. I just finished all the micro cream. I love it. I need more and I am going to purchase another set. The first time or every time you use it, you can feel the difference. Thank you this is a great product, I love it.

Demetria: What do you babes expect? You probably have been neglecting your skin for years and now want a miracle. I started taking care of my skin when I was 21 and now at 67 and with help from this product it still is wrinkle free. I use a variety of things and this is the “base’ of other skin care. It takes care to have good skin.

Marni: I ordered this product the first week of December and they took $35 out of my checking account. Then 2 weeks after receiving my kit they took $97 out of my account and sent me another kit!!! Which I refused and had mailed back. 4 weeks later they STILL will not refund my money. You get the runaround no matter WHO you talk to!

Roz: Don’t do it… I returned this product and it’s been 7 weeks and still have not recieved my refund. I cancel the service and will continue to wait for my refund and tell any and everyone about the bad experience and this long wait time for a refund.

C: I live in Las Vegas. Several years ago I received a third degree sun burn when I fell asleep on a float in my pool. I was a cocktail waitress at the Mirage and worked the graveyard shift and had a very difficult time trying to adjust to the awful hours! When I woke I was so burnt my face was swollen and blistered as well as my neck, chest and shoulders, I was vomiting and ended up in the emergency room. The blisters left ugly scars all over my face and neck! The scaring was so deep the skin that healed was a layer under the top layer of skin and this skin will NEVER tan. I also had dents left in my face and neck where that top layer of skin used to be. If I went out in the sun, I would tan like normal except for the blister scars. I used to wear so much heavy makeup to try to hide my scars, you cannot wear that much without looking a fright. I have spend thousands of dollars on two prescription creams one of which is a skin bleaching gel. Since the plastic surgeon explained my scars with never tan I should try to bleach my healthy skin to help blend in the scars. It took years, I still use both today. BUT! I saw Susan Lucci on an infomercial. I didn’t care about the soft or younger looking skin I heard something about reducing scars and bought it immediately! I had lived for so long embarrassed of all the makeup I slapped on every day, then I started noticing my collars, I could not go to work without covering the scars on my neck, but I hated the constant ugly makeup stains around my collars. I was so self conscious of the scars. I can now go out in public without all the makeup, still need to wear it, but wear it like a normal person! When I first used Youthful Essence, I was startled by the layer of dark skin that just rolled off my face the second time I used it. I have to say if I had not used this product along with the two creams, (plastic surgery was just too expensive!) I would not be able to show my face in public without heavy makeup! It took years, but it was all the hope I had and kept up my routine every night. Today I never think about the scars, they are not noticeable at all on my face (THANK GOD!) but I still have a few on my neck and chest. Guess I should spend another five years or so working on those, and I just might be scar free! As for customer service, it seems like very order I receive is wrong, been like that for years. Went round and round with guther whoever, because they started to charge me more that the original price. I used so much at first I had two shipments sent every three months instead of one. A couple of years later I noticed I had extra jars of cream stocking up and realized I wasn

Anil: Thanks to all the posts… I was almost about to order this one and now decided not to.

debra: I would like to try this..ordered it and received..cannot get the top of machine to insert the batteries!

Youthful Essence® is advertised as being safe for “all types of skin,” yet we never see any clinical evidence to support these products or such claims.

 Ingredients in Focus
In general, Youthful Essence® appears to be a fairly standard skincare approach that, for the most part, contains mediocre ingredients. Youthful Essence® is advertised as a “home microdermabrasion kit,” but people should be aware that these items may not achieve dermatologist-quality results.

In addition, we noticed that Youthful Essence® lacks quality ingredients like Matrixyl 3000®, which is known to moisturize, which keeps skin soft and vibrant. This ingredient may also assist in reducing wrinkles and restoring the skin. When searching for a skincare product, we believe it is crucial for people to look for proven ingredients like Matrixyl 3000®.

Youthful Essence® also includes a “resurfacing” tool that helps apply the items contained in this set of products. However, several online testimonials claim that this device is poorly designed.
With so many choices, making the right choice in skincare is not always an easy decision. However, choosing an item with the most effective ingredients may be an important part of healthy skincare. Youthful Essence® may not be safest or most effective item on the market. In fact, despite its supposed “physician recommendation,” Youthful Essence® seems to be potentially unreliable. Youthful Essence® appears to lack an adequate refund policy, which is often a sign of a high quality manufacturer and a good way for people to feel confident in the items they buy.

 Final Thoughts
Many products like those included in the Youthful Essence® line are mediocre items that are geared towards making a quick sale. People should keep in mind that not all skincare products are safe for long-term use. The long-term appearance of the skin may be deeply impacted by the products customers use. That is why we feel it is so important for people to search for items that contain high quality ingredients that fit their individual needs. Most high quality products are backed by consumer testimonies and have been featured in prominent publications.

Safe and effective ingredients to look for may include Matrixyl 3000® and Argireline, which are known to be efficient skincare ingredients that provide great results without side effects. In the end, we tend to agree with the consumer reports that have rated Youthful Essence® as an inferior item. We believe people may be better off looking elsewhere for high quality skincare items. Our research shows that such items often come from industry-award-winning companies that are more than willing to provide a complete list of ingredients for each of their products. Often these companies will back up their products by providing research and a money-back guarantee.
