Youth To The People | Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum: Review
Youth To The People has taken its place among one of my favorite brands for reliable and clean skincare. I've enjoyed many of their products so I was beyond excited about the release of the new Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum (C$68 for 30 ml), a hyaluronic acid serum promising intense hydration and visible plumping.

Youth To The People | Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum
Housed in a beautiful blue glass pump bottle, the Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum fully embodies the minimalist yet trendy aesthetic that Youth To The People has got down pat. The serum is formulated with hydrating hyaluronic acid, collagen-supporting peptide, and moisture-binding extract from the peel of cactus and rambutan. With a watery, gel-like consistency, the serum has a very subtle but slightly unpleasant chemical smell. Those with fragrance sensitivities will appreciate the no added scent but I kind of wish the formulation had a bit of natural fragrance to mask its natural smell. The serum spreads easily on the skin and absorbs beautifully without leaving any sticky film or residue on the skin. I've not experienced any pilling so the serum pairs well with all my moisturizers. In terms of effectiveness, the Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum definitely boosts hydration. When followed with a good moisturizer, the serum improves skin texture, creating a smoother, hydrated complexion. All in all, this is an excellent product. However, I'm very hung up on the price tag. The Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum is essentially a hyaluronic acid serum, albeit a great one. If you have the money, then by all means, splurge! But given how many similar products can be found on the market, it's easy to find cheaper alternatives. If you are looking for something similar but at a bit easier on the wallet, I would recommend checking out the Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Serum or the Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying and Hydrating Daily Skin Booster.
