|Bliss Youth As We Know It||
Bliss is a line of beauty care products found in high-end makeup boutiques, and Bliss Youth As We Know It is one of their leading anti-aging offerings. As a brand, Bliss was founded in New York City in 1996. It is claimed by the manufacturer of Bliss Youth As We Know It that this cream is suitable for any and all skin types. The manufacturers go on to claim that 100% of testers who participated in a six week trial showed an increase in skin hydration, while 81.3% saw “an improvement in skin radiance” and 63.6% saw “an immediate relaxing of fine lines.” Finally, 50% of those who participated in the trial claim to have seen a reduction in hyperpigmentation.
The official website for Bliss Youth As We Know It also claims that the product was featured in numerous media outlets, including People Magazine, Allure Magazine, on Dr. Phil’s show and in Lucky Magazine. It is claimed that Bliss Youth As We Know It contains 10 active ingredients. These include: Collagen and elastin protectors, anti-wrinkle peptides, visible facial fillers, oxygen boosters, advanced moisture binders, 7 day hydrators, skin protecting ceramides, wrinkle appearance reducers, brightening multi-fruit complex and skin refining Vitamin A. Unfortunately, few details are disclosed regarding many of these active ingredients, and we find some of these listings to be a bit vague. Bliss Youth As We Know It can be used safely with all other Bliss products.

The Bottom Line
Bliss Youth As We Know It is one of many, many products available from Bliss cosmetics. The product manufacturer makes a lot of big claims about their product, but they offer little proof to back up these claims. We’d opt for a product from a manufacturer more focused specifically on wrinkle care, and also one that maintains a more professional web presence.
