Hi there, I have launched myself into Decleor and am enjoying their products. But as with most ladies on EDS, I am also looking for My Perfect Skincare Line ... and I'm not convinced that Decleor is it.

I have been looking through Yonka and I have read some really good reviews. Are there some long time Yonka users out there? Is there anyone who has used Yonka as well as Decleor and could compare them?

Any comments would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Oh, forgot to add, my skin is dull, patchy, and although not zitty, has small bumps/congestion.

It's genuinely combination - both dry and dehydrated at the same time.

I'm not a long term Yonka user, though I used to use a number of their products, a while ago now though. I actually found it a bit bewildering knowing which products from the line I could use.
I can't give you much advice, but in regards to the bumps and congestion, I'd definitely recommend using the Yonka Juvenil. I didn't find it great for helping breakouts, the Emulsion Pure is more effective for that, but you can mix a little bit of the Yonka Juvenil with whichever moisturiser you may choose from the line and I found using it daily really helped clear areas of congestion for me. Even more so if I just used a thin layer of the Juvenil over my face first and then applied a moisturiser.

If it's any consolation, Serendipity, I loved Yonka when I was using it! Smile What did you order?

It's a sign!! Skinstore canceled my order because they don't ship Yonka internationally. I only ordered a couple of items ! I could take the sign to mean I need to stop spending so much money on skincare Crying or Very sad ; but I prefer to take it to mean:


I should only purchase through EDS Wink !!

I only use one Yonka product, the Gel Nettoyant Cleansing Gel is in my cleanser rotation. Wink I find it very gentle and it cleans well without leaving any residue.

I love Yonka's products. Although I don't use them exclusively, I always come back to them when my skin needs a break from the actives I use. My staples are the Cleansing Milk and the Serum. I'd actually never be without the Serum!

I have been using Yonka products for over 8 years now, all I can say is I ABSOLUTELY Love them. My favorite is the Serum and Optimizer. People always ask my how do I get my skin to glow and look so Young, I say well it's a secret. IT"s YONKA! I'm 35, but people think I'm 28!!!

I am about to place my order for the serum and Optimizer once again.

Anyone know which eye product they can recommend.

Thanks,
Jacquy

Jacquy, Could you tell me how you use the optimizer and serum? Do you mix them in with a moisturizer? I have used Yonka on and off for many years. I was in a spa the other day and the girl had the most glowing skin, I asked her what she used and it was Yonka.

I used the it both was together or by itself. But I would rather use the optimizer alone because the cerum is an oil and I already have only skin. I usually use the serum after a deep scrub or a masque.
