Cleanser, Toner, Lotions, Acne relief, Moisturizer

After my recent facial with The Summit Spa (read that post here: “Do Yourself a Facial“) I have been ob-sessed with Yon-ka Paris products. I will give you a fair warning before you continue reading this post because I will have nothing bad to say about these products!

Make-up remover – cleanser, face and eyes, Purifying

FOR: Combination skins, Oily skins (Day & Night)

This azure blue gel with its smooth and silky foam is appropriate for
all skin types.  It gently cleanses and removes make-up from face,
eyelids and eyelashes, and purifies and revives the skin. Gentle on the
hydrolipid film, it leaves  your skin  supple, fresh and comfortable.


Hydrating, Soothing, Refreshing

FOR: Dry or sensitive skin, dehydrated skin (Day & Night)

The phyto-aromatic healing water

More than just a toner, this healing mist is a true phyto-aromatic
fountain of beauty, essential for re-balancing and preparing the skin
for everyday beauty products. Alcohol-free, it refreshes, tones and
sanitizes the skin, the energizing effects of its essential oils can be
felt throughout the whole body.

Fresh and soothed skin, radiant complexion A beautiful aroma that helps you unwind.

Exfoliating – Detoxifying

FOR: Dull complexion, all skin types

Triple action instant radiance scrub: purifies, polishes, and invigorates.
This exfoliating cream gently cleanses and unclogs the epidermis:
delicately polished as a result of two by the complementary association
of micro-beads in various sizes (guarana and organic brown rice),
softened by a cocktail of plant extracts with soothing virtues, skin
feels smooth and silky, its texture is refined.

Clean, fresh, radiant, your skin appears able to “breathe” again.


Complexion protection, Revitalizing, Protecting

FOR: Normal to oily skin, lacking in radiance (Day)

Vibrant energizing cocktail.

A real boost (shot) of energy, this light, luscious cream with an
invigorating citrus scent lights up the complexion and vitalizes the
epidermis. The version for normal to oily skin, with a higher
concentration of fruit, tightens the pores.

Your complexion is radiant. YOUR skin and spirit revitalized thanks to citrus aromas.
I’ve been using these four Yon-ka products for the past couple of weeks, and I can honestly say I’ve been loving every minute of it. I think the biggest thing for me is the smell. I’m not sure if I associate the smells with my facial I received at The Summit Spa about a month ago, or if they are just super relaxing smells, but I always feel super zen while I’m washing my face at night.  

The gel cleanser sloths off my makeup effortlessly to the point where I don’t even need eye makeup remover anymore (um this is kind of amazing!), and its specifically designed for acne prone skin. Yay! – Not sure why I’m celebrating acne prone skin, but I’m happy there’s a product to help it – that doesn’t bleach it.

The Yon-ka Toner smells absolutely amazing and I love it so much! Which is really saying something because as my esthetician can attest I was not a fan of using toning products before. I would very often skip this step because my skin would either feel tight or feel dry, and neither of these were the case with the Yon-ka Toner. My skin felt clean, and fresh, and never dry.

When you suffer the slings and arrows (apologies I just saw Ballet Jorgen’s Romeo and Juliet – read about here) of adult acne you know that it’s important to scuff off all that dead skin so your skin can breathe and make room for fresh new skin. The guarana scrub is great for for detoxing as well as exfoliating. I used this scrub a couple times a week (especially on weekends) when I want to really make sure to take off my heavy makeup. After using the scrub I noted that my skin felt super soft, and clean, and most importantly fresh.  It’s important not to over do it with this one, exfoliating is great but in moderation; your skin is very fragile, and you don’t want to upset it by using abrasive products too much.

I also make sure to follow up after a scrub with a great hydrator. It’s important to put moisture back in because you to nourish that your fresh new skin. I love the pamplemouse cream, its fresh citrus scent not only smells amazing, but also absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t feel greasy or sticky. It’s perfect for applying under your makeup because it makes the skin super soft, hydrating, and feels really clean, and it didn’t break me out! Woo!

Honestly these skin care products are my most loved to date! My skin has not looked this great in a really long time. I’ve been really trying to stay consistent with using all of the products together to make sure I’m getting an accurate perception of their effectiveness and I really think it’s helping to calm down my acne.

For more information or to find products to suit your skin type visit Yon-Ka USA. Or if you live locally you can book an apt with The Summit Spa here in Halifax, and a skilled esthetician can help you choose the right fit.
