Yves Saint Laurent Forever Light Creator Serum Review

FLC (716x495px)

The Yves Saint Laurent Forever Light Creator Serum hit the shelves this week, and we’ve been dying to talk about it! A few months ago, ten 20-something girls at House of Fraser HQ put it to the test to see if it really did what it said on the tin.

Luckily for you (and them!) it really does do everything it says. Labeled a “dream product”, this little serum helps to correct the appearance of uneven skintones, while shadows caused by fine lines and enlarged pores appear minimised. Over the course of a few months, any dark spots and redness looked visibly reduced, and skin tones looked more radiant and even.


Onto the reviews…


The YSL Forever Light absorbed very quickly and easily into my skin. Even though I have sensitive skin, this product did not sting my face or cause any redness at all. I applied the serum after my toner and before my moisturiser, and it felt really refreshing. You would expect a serum to be quite thick, but I found it very light, leaving my skin feel re-energized.

I have rather dry skin that often lacks radiance, especially after too many late nights and a stressful week at work, so I was in desperate need of a product that would give my skin a much needed pick-me-up. I used Forever Light in the morning and evening in place of my moisturiser, and not only did it rehydrate my skin wonderfully, but after only a week I noticed a visible difference in my skin tone. My skin looks brighter and more radiant and I found myself using my foundation more sparingly. The serum glides on beautifully and absorbs into the skin much faster than moisturiser, meaning getting ready in the morning has become a breeze!

I have trouble finding skincare products that really work with my temperamental skin type, but Ia��d heard good things about Yves Saint Laurent Forever Light, so I was eager to see what this had to offer. I suffer from combination skin a�� the usual oily and dry areas that often make skincare shopping a nightmare. This serum promised a radiant appearance after one use a�� a claim that was proved after I applied my first dose. My face had an iridescent sheen and felt baby soft! After a couple of weeks use I can honestly say this has made my skin look and feel plumper. My pores have tightened which has left less room for excess oil and dirta�� resulting in less spots, which is always great! Overall, I feel that this is a great option if you are looking to treat your skin to something special. Great work YSL!

I loved the fragrance of the Forever Light Creator Serum, first and foremost! Upon application, the silky-soft serum was smooth and rich on the skin, but it wasna��t sticky at all and it absorbed extremely quickly. It instantly enhanced my skin with a slight pearlescent radiance. After using the serum for a month in the evenings and occasionally in the mornings, I noticed that my pores appeared finer and residual imperfections, left over from previous stress spots, were visibly smaller. The overall appearance of my skin was smoother, softer and more even in tone. I will definitely continue to use this product and recommend to friends!

Ia��ve been usingA�YSL Forever Light Creator every morning prior to putting my makeup on, and it works well as a base primer along with its primary function as a complexion highlighter. The serum is smooth and easy to apply and smells amazing! I don’t find the pipette applicator easy to use, but I find it easier to apply with my fingertips. I have used the product regularly each day on my face and neck as per the instructions and can easily say that I saw an improvement to my complexion almost immediately. My skin feels softer and silkier to touch, and my skintone seems even – I will definitely continue using this product everyday, as it’s become a staple in my morning makeup routine!

I absolutely love this product! When applied, my skin appears instantly brighter and feels hydrated. It glides onto the skin, providing a great base for make up while improving the tone and texture of my skin.A� I only used it in the morning, so it did take a couple of weeks before I began to notice the benefits, but now ita��s a must-have in my beauty bag!A� A small amount goes a long way too, so Ia��m expecting it to last for a long time.

I have been using YSL Forever Light around my eyes because I have millions of lines which are getting more prominent with age. After using it for a month I have seen a definite change in the appearance of my smaller wrinkles, however, the deeper wrinkles have seen no significant changes. This product is more for fine lines and pores, and I’m really happy with the results.

I have quite dry skin so I found the YSL Forever Light Creator a little light to use on its own. I would apply my moisturiser as normal and then apply this on top. On weekdays I would apply my make up on top of this and it worked really well as a primer too. As my skin is dry, I find that it absorbs my make up in to my skin so I have been advised that I should use a primer. Unfortunately I have found most primers make my skin quite tight, so using this has been perfect!! It helps keep my make up on my face and gives it a more radiant finish.

I am loving the Forever Light SerumA�and it has been part of my daily routine for about two months now. I use it in the evenings just before I go to bed and it leaves my skin feeling very light and refreshed. I have noticed my face feeling firmer, especially on my cheek bone/eye area and my skin tone has become more even.

I was really excited to try this new product from Yves Saint Laurent. I always worry about serums being greasy as I have oily skin but this had a really lovely texture. There was also a very light shimmer in the serum which gave my skin a nice glow when I applied it. This product claims to even out skin tone and I feel like this really did work. I have been using it religiously for the past two months and I have noticed a visible difference. When I apply this at night, my skin feels soft and smooth when I wake up in the morning. Ia��m so glad that Ia��ve found this product… This has definitely become one of my skincare staples!
