Brand Overview

The Youth As We Know It is “Formulated with the ten most effective anti-aging ingredients we’ve found over ten years of giving ‘great face’, The Youth As We Know It is a one-stop shop for wrinkle renovation, exfoliation, oxygenation, binding hydration, surface line relaxation, cellular respiration, and collagen and elastin regeneration.” Wow! If any of this were true, you’d have to wonder why Blisslabs is still selling its numerous other anti-wrinkle products. This water- and silicone-based moisturizer contains more antioxidants than any other Blisslabs moisturizer, but the choice of jar packaging won’t keep them stable once the product is opened. That leaves you with an OK moisturizer for normal to dry skin and the unfortunate fact that many of the beneficial substances not affected by light and air exposure are barely present. Lastly, I don’t know where Blisslabs got their ten most effective anti-aging ingredients because no research has established any such directive, but I can think of dozens and dozens they did not include.

Jar Packaging: Yes
Tested on animals: No

The story of Bliss starts in 1996, when personal trainer Marcia Kilgore opened a New York spa designed around no-fuss skin treatments and de-stressing regimens for busy lifestyles. Over time, clients asked for Bliss-branded skin care products, and so Bliss skin care was born.

Bliss enjoyed success for years, being sold in spas as well as online and at some brick-and-mortar retailers. Kilgore eventually sold Bliss, and after changing hands a couple more times, the brand began to lose some of its identity. Its most recent owners decided it was time for a back to our roots makeover, with lower prices across the board and a cleaner version of Blisss iconic white with splashes of color packaging.

Blisss biggest appeal is in providing people with a spa-like experience at home. The line features multiple masks, in addition to exfoliation treatments, moisturizers, and body care products for a variety of skin types and concerns. While there are some missteps in the line (including fragranced products and some instances of jar packaging), there are some gems to be found among Blisss offerings you just have to know where to look.
