So from the title of this post, you already know that this review will be from a person who has sensitive and acne-prone skin. Yes, I am a person who has super extreme skin sensitivity. My skin reacts to anything and I get breakouts within hours.
So for me, a skincare product working effectively without causing any negative effect is a big thing. Recently, YBP Cosmetics launched Plant Remedy which is a mixture of 4 oils that is, Argan Oil, Blue Tansy Oil, Geranium Oil, and Rosemary CO2 Extract.
The USP of Plant Remedy is, it is 100% pure. YBP Plant Remedy is all about pure and natural oils from the source and I have been using Plant Remedy from over a month, day and night.
Let us see how YBP Plant Remedy worked for me…
I Do Believe in Energies and Vibes
I am not sure if anyone can connect to this but I do believe and in energies and vibes. I do feel every ingredient has its own vibes and energy which gets transfers when we use them. You instantly feel a positive connection with a product that ultimately works for you as well. That’s what happened when I saw the YBP Plant Remedy.
Being a person having a history of super skin sensitivity where products with oils have caused major breakouts, I went ahead and gave all my positive energy into this as I could feel that it is something that is pure and will work for me.

Review – YBP Plant Remedy
My Skin Type: Combination to Oily in Summers, Dry in Winters, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin.
Packaging: It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper cap. Furthermore, the glass bottles come in a khadi box packaging. That’s what makes YBP Special. They are all into nature.
1. Instantly Calms your Mind
When I first rubbed the oil between my hands and applied it on my face, the soothing and calming fragrance of it actually relaxed and soothed my mental energy. This rarely happens. Like my mind was literally feeling calm. It has not only a beautiful soothing fragrance but an aroma that calms your mind.
2. Lightweight and Non-Sticky
I was having this feeling that it will be slightly on a thicker side or heavier side because it is purely made of oils. But to my surprise, it is lightweight, not at all sticky, greasy or heavy and easily get absorbed by the skin. It didn’t leave any uncomfortable or sticky feeling post-application.
3. Adds Beautiful Glow After First Few Uses
I started using Plant Remedy as my night time oil because oils work beautifully during night time that is, the repair mode for your skin. When I woke up the next day there was a noticeable glow on my skin. The glow was something on the next level.
4. Instantly Moisturizes the Skin
The moment I apply onto my skin I can feel my dry skin feeling relaxed as it instantly moisturizes the skin. All the dry feeling around the lips and on cheeks goes away instantly.
5. No-Breakouts or Clogged Pores. Suitable for All Skin Types.
This is the first time, a skincare product made of oils worked for me. I have used serums and facial oils and each and every one of them caused breakouts overnight. There was the time I started to believe that my skin is not made for oils. No oil ever going to work for me. Every time I have used a facial oil, I got clogged pores and big red bumps the next day. This happened with me when I used St.Botanica Argan and Rosehip Face Serum as well.
But, YBP Plant Remedy changed everything. This not only didn’t caused breakouts but also helped my skin in fastening the process of healing the pimples.
I remember doubting that why every time I use a skincare product having Argan Oil give me pimples. I was literally leaving all the products having Argan in it. But after YBP Plant Remedy, I realized how important it is to be the original and pure.
Because the oils used in Plant Remedy are 100% pure, they worked for my sensitive and acne-prone skin.
6. Works Effectively even for Oily Skin
We oily and acne-prone skin people are afraid a lot when it comes to using oils because a lot of times, we have faced clogging up of pores. I too used to avoid anything with oils. But the reason behind it might not be in it’s purest form. I have myself stayed away from oils because I used to believe that it will just result in pimples but nothing else. But to the contrary, oils are simply beautiful and they work beautifully for all types of skin and when used in pure and natural form, they do not cause any negative effect.
7. Fastens up the Process of Healing the Pimples and Acne
After two weeks or so, I realized that time taken by my skin to heal a pimple was much reduced. Because Plant Remedy has calming and anti-inflammatory properties, it effectively soothed the pimples and helped my skin healing them faster.
8. Reduces Pimple and Acne-Pain
I got one big pimple on my forehead during those days which was red and painful and I remember how Plant Remedy actually calmed it and reduced the pain. Within a few days, the pimple was almost healed having no pain.
9. Might Not Help in Protecting Skin from Forming New Acne
If you are someone whose skin is exposed to a lot of pollution and dust on a daily basis then there will be pimples for sure. It wouldn’t help in reducing the formation of acne but will surely help in healing them faster.
In protecting my skin from forming new acne and pimples every now and then, Caladryl Calamine Lotion really helped me.
10. Takes About a Week in Improving/Healing the Dull and Dehydrated Skin
It wasn’t something that instantly or overnight showed results. It took about a week or 10 days when I noticed that it is slightly has improved the way my skin looks. The glow and the texture were similar to what I got when I started using Innisfree Orchid Moisturizer. Day and Night, there was that healthy texture on my skin with a beautiful glow.
11. Can be Paired Up with Other Skincare Products
Because this is made of 100% pure oils and nothing else, you can easily include it in your skincare routine along with other products. I first use my Vitamin-c Serum, followed by Caladryl Lotion and then finally, I apply YBP Plant Remedy and it works so well for me without causing any irritation or something.
12. Couldn’t Keep Skin Moisturized for Longer Hours
Surprisingly, the amount of moisture it adds to my skin wasn’t enough during these super dry-cold winters. Even though it was improving the way my skin looks and glows but I was having this feeling that my skin needs more moisturizer. Not immediately, but after a few hours. It was like it wasn’t able to keep my skin nourished for longer hours as the season gets drier. Then, I started applying my Simple Rich Moisturizer on top of that and it again worked great, without giving me pimples.
Alternatively, I increased the number of drops I was using from 3 to 8-9 to see if it works and then it started to deliver the moisture I need for my skin but with this much amount, I had to pour in a lot more time to let my skin absorb and it took a much longer time for my skin to completely let it sink in it. Not an issue though because I am a person who can spare time when it comes to skincare but considering the price factor, this could finish up the bottle in a short span of time.
13. Can Help in Restoring Skin’s Youthfulness and Slowing Down Skin Aging
Because Oils are known for their magical powers in making the skin look younger and working on fine lines, including YBP Plant Remedy in your skincare routine can also help you to adopt a routine that will help your skin in delaying its aging.
14. Might/Might Not Replace Your Moisturizer but, Will be a Great Addition to Your Skincare Routine
As mentioned earlier, it wasn’t able to keep my skin moisturized for longer hours in these winter days, it might or might not replace your moisturizer depending on what your skin needs.
But, because it is the only product I tried with 100% purity, which helps in healing and calming the skin, which can help in delay skin aging, it will be a great investment towards your skincare routine.
15. Great for Sun-Damaged/Burned Skin
Because YBP Plant Remedy has anti-inflammatory properties, it worked great in soothing and calming the skin which was slightly got red due to sun exposure. I do not get tan, I get burn under the sun and Plant Remedy really has the capabilities to heal the skin.
16. Can be used as Night-Time Facial/Repair Oil
Night-Time is the best time to feed your skin as it enters into the repair mode. Our whole body uses what we have fed to repair itself during the night. I specifically use this YBP Plant Remedy along with my serum and moisturizer for added benefits as oils can help your skin to repair itself overnight. I have heard people who have invested in their skincare in their 20s, have the most healthy and youthful skin in their 40s. So I do feel that If I will add facial oils to my night-time routine now, it will help my skin to work on fine lines or delay skin’s aging.
17. Soothes the Skin Instantly
This is what I really like about it. It instantly gives my skin a soothing and calming sensation. Whenever I have applied this, I could feel a sensation of calmness. I easily get redness and inflammation and this really helps in soothing it down and relaxing your skin cells from deep within.
18. So Pure that Anyone Can Use Without Any Second Thought
This is literally the best part of Plant Remedy. Because it is 100% and Original, you don’t need to think twice when getting this product. If you want to go for it, just go for it. No matter what skin type you have, no matter if you are a man or woman, anyone can use it.
YBP Plant Remedy Oil is the first-ever facial oil that I have used, having 100% pure, original, natural from the source ingredients. So pure that anyone can use it without any doubt. It causes no breakouts and helps in soothing and calming the skin and mental energy. Adds a beautiful next-level glow. It helps in healing the redness or inflammation. Great for sunburned skin and can help your skin in delaying aging. It might not replace your moisturizer depending on your skin’s needs but could be a fabulous investment to your skincare routine.
When used in pure form, oils work like magic for your skin. They have properties to make your skin look younger, they can delay aging, they can help skin healing anything, and they are just simply beautiful. Nothing in this world can do what oils can do for our skin, body and mental energy. They have their own special existence and for that purpose, YBP Plant Remedy is the best pure option you can have.
