Hello you bunch of legends!
Today, I’ll be writing you a full and frank review about Younique Corporation‘s new(ish) Royalty Range – and not the Frank who lives next door to you, potentially. One choice word keeps coming to mind: “luxurious”.
A little back story on Younique… Younique’s mission is to uplift, empower, validate, and ultimately build self-esteem in women around the world. Some of the profit made by this brand goes to charities that support rape victims, therefore it’s a good cause to get behind.
Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft, a brother-and-sister team, founded Younique in September 2012 with a mission to uplift, empower, and validate women across the globe. Derek and Melanie firmly believe that all women should feel valued, smart, and empowered through opportunities of personal growth and financial reward!
Although I don’t own the entire range, I know a thing or two about it through a friend of mine who is a well-respected and established Younique representative/presenter.
Give your skin the royal treatment
Last month, the brand had a Customer Kudos offer which meant that buying the Instant Lifting Serum means you’ll get £15 off towards another product and I took advantage of it!
The “Customer Kudos” changes every month by the way. This month, for example, you can buy three SPLASH liquid lipsticks for £57 and get a lip exfoliator for FREE!
So, I ordered the Instant Lifting Serum along with the Detoxifying Mask and waited patiently for them to arrive in their beautifully presented Cadbury purple sparkly packaging with a Twirl chocolate bar thrown in for good measure. #WINNING!
I waited an entire month before reviewing as I wanted to give a fair opinion and not one that would be biased or short-lived.
Younique’s Royalty Detoxifying Mask
Everyone who knows me knows that I’m not a big mask fan unless it’s from LUSH and it’s fresh but Younique’s Royalty Detoxifying Mask has converted me. It’s a black, gel-like consistency that applies on the face like butter and dries on smooth but crackles like Rice Crispies before drying. Why? To draw out the toxins and impurities trapped under the skin. If you’re worried about washing it off and making a mess – don’t because it’s not messy during or after washing off. It’s also important to mention that it comes off smoothly too, meaning it doesn’t dry or go crusty like you’d think it would.
After washing it off, you’ll be left with baby soft skin that looks clean and boasts a healthy glow. Apparently, you don’t get many uses out of it because it’s a small pot but for the price you pay it’s definitely worth it!
The packaging of these products is second to none. It looks very luxurious, regal and classy. The Detoxifying Mask comes in a small, what-might-be glass bright purple jar with a champagne coloured lid. What’s more, the box that it comes in matches the mask’s packaging of course!

Younique’s Royalty Instant Lifting Serum
Now for the main event… The BAE to my BEAUTY – it’s Younique’s Royalty Instant Lifting Serum. If you follow my blog closely you’ll know that I do NOTHING but bang on about my previous “Alvin & the Chipmunk cheeks” look but would you like to know what helped? THIS!
The Instant Lifting Serum is liquid gold, that’s how I would describe it… It’s the first anti-aging / lifting serum which I’ve tried that provides noticeable results very quickly. How quickly? 10 minutes. The Instant Lifting Serum is great for sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, the odd crows feet and dark circles. Any imperfections will be ‘ousted’, and ‘Cilit Bang'(ed)!
I do love me some air freshener and kitchen cleaner puns!
Younique’s Instant Lifting Serum should be worn over your moisturiser apparently. So, the plan is: you wash your face with a cleanser of your choice (or the Detoxifying Mask), follow up with a toner, moisturiser and then apply a small amount to the desired area. Personally, I use it as a primer underneath my make-up.
Top tip for make-up wearers: wait until it sinks into the skin before applying your foundation.
Again, the packaging is luxurious, a small bright purple bottle with a gold cap and a pump-tip which squirts out ample amounts of the product. If you want to use it all over the face and neck, two-three pumps should be more than enough. I use it every day and I believe I’ve still got half of it left… So, it’s definitely worth it!
Does the Instant Lifting Serum sounds like something you’d like in your make-up or skincare bag? Get purchasing HERE!
However, I’m not sure whether orders are made via Younique representatives/presenters directly or whether you can buy directly from the website, please double-check though as I bought my products from a friend who sells on their behalf.
Better still, if you’d like to become a Younique Presenter and start selling for your friends, they’re always looking for new faces to join their Younique family. You can do it at your own pace, in your own time. I mean, you don’t even need to sell… You can just purchase a Presenter’s kit worth £178 for a one-time payment of £67 and not sell anything but you’ll still be eligible to receive products before they are released and get special offers and discounts. That is a win-win situ if ever I saw one!
