I'm not the person the Amorepacific Youth Revolution Radiance Creme and Masque was made for. See, it's a two-in-one. Both moisturizer and mask, all rolled up into one. And while I live for versatility in a dress, a piece of furniture, or a carry-all, I'm really into ultra-specific, targeted skin care. Are you the serum for the zit beneath my left nostril brought on by excessive simple sugar intake a few weeks ago? Wonderful. Are you the cleanser for when I don't take off my makeup before my workout class? Great. Are you the night cream for when I have to get up for the airport in four hours because it takes me forever to pack? Amazing.
But alas — I found myself on a three-night trip with nothing but an adorably miniature version of the Amorepacific Youth Revolution Radiance Creme and Masque, makeup remover, and sunscreen to keep my skin looking its best the entire time. I was exactly two serums, one oil, and one cream short. And I wasn't sure I was going to make it.
The first night, I smoothed on the whipped-smooth, lightly floral-scented cream right after my shower. My skin felt hydrated, but I think I couldn't get over the mental hurdle of just putting on one thing. So I went back in a couple hours later, before I went to bed, and applied another layer.
In my head, the first go was the cream, and the second application was the mask. I slept in my faintly floral-scented cocoon, and woke up to truly bright, smooth skin. Someone even commented on how fresh I looked! And rightly so — further research revealed that I'd gotten a double dose of hydrating glycerin and squalane spiked with peony flower extract, lavender oil, and antioxidant green tea polysaccharides.
The next night, and the next, I only applied one layer. And it was just enough.
