A while ago I was sent two Yonka Anti-ageing products to try out. As I am over 40 my skin is starting to show fine lines and wrinkles and it needs all the help it can get to turn back time.
Yonka is not a brand I was familiar with so I had a little look to see what I could find out. It appears the company was started by two doctors who wanted to use plants and natural means to find cures for burns, joint pain and colds. The idea grew from there and a company was formed that add essential oils and plant extracts into face creams, massage oils and body oils which have a beneficial effect on the skin.
I was sent two products from the range to try, Yonka Fruitelia Anti-Wrinkle Renewer and Yonka Alpha Complex Anti-Wrinkle Renewing. The two products are complimentary as Yonka Fruitelia is for day time use and the Yonka Alpha Complex is for night time use. The first thing that struck me about the products was the packaging. The boxes are a lovely silver colour with small amounts of purple writing and silver flowers on them. They look really elegant.
Yonka Fruitelia comes in a glass bottle which continues the silver theme. It has a pump top lid, which you need to twist before you can get any to come out. It can be locked again afterwards, which is great for stopping children messing around and wasting it! It is made from a mixture of fruit extracts. You can really smell the fruit when you use it, it has a gorgeous scent.
Yonka Fruitelia is a really light moisturiser which sinks into your skin quickly leaving your skin feeling lovely and soft. It should be applied in the morning after cleansing and toning. The fruit acids in the product are meant to promote cell renewal and remove dull lifeless skin whilst smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. I have definitely seen an improvement in my skin since I have been using this product.
RRP £54.00 for 50 ml.
Yonka Alpha Complex
Yonka Alpha Complex is again in a glass bottle with a silver theme although it is pale yellow in colour. It is designed to be used at night after cleansing and toning and the product also contains fruit acids which work to remove dull lifeless skin and erase wrinkles. It has the same pump top as the Yonka Fruitelia which needs to be twisted to get the product to come out, a design I like. Again when you use it you get a lovely fruity scent which is gorgeous.
Yonka Alpha Concentrate feels very light on the skin and absorbs very quickly, without leaving the skin feeling greasy or tight. My skin looks softer and I can see a reduction in the fine lines on my skin since I have been using this. These are lovely products and I would recommend them.
RRP £60.00 for 30 ml
The products are more expensive than products I would normally buy but they actually have lasted really well and I actually think I would have used twice as much of my normal product so it would work out about the same.
