ART Skincare vs. BLOOM – Which to pick?!

Young Living has 2 incredible, top-of-the-line skincare lines for us, but that may have you wondering, “so which should I use??”.
I’ve personally used both and LOVE, I mean LOVE, them both! But let’s break down the details on each line so you can decide which might meet your needs most ideally!

The ART Skin Care System is YL’s OG skincare line. It stands for Age Refining Technology & combines DNA recovery enzymes – an advanced technology – with a proprietary Anti-Aging Peptide Complex, to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, diminish age spots, even skin tone and increase the elasticity and density of your skin. It uses naturally derived ingredients to safely and effectively cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin to enhance your natural beauty. With innovative, powerful botanicals and efficacious, skin-loving essential oils, the ART Skin Care System serves as the foundation for your outer beauty. Much like an artist prepping a canvas, Young Living’s works of ART will leave your complexion feeling and looking refreshed, renewed, and radiant. 

Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Works with skin to maintain balance
Helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance
Prevents drying and helps protect from environmental aggressors
Made of naturally derived ingredients that absorb easily into skin
Formulated without parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic dyes/colorants

The ART Skin Care line includes: ART Gentle Cleanser, ART Refreshing Toner, and ART Light Moisturizer, ART intensive moisturizer, ART beauty masque & ART renewal serum.

This is YL’s latest & greatest when it comes to skincare! It was developed using our old fave, Sheerlume! I like to think of Sheerlume as “spanx for your face! Brightening, tightening, and lightening! Developed to address the appearance of dull, uneven skin, the BLOOM by Young Living Brightening Skin Care Collection is your secret to a natural, youthful glow. This collection is infused with the most advanced natural ingredients available to brighten the skin’s appearance and add natural radiance. BLOOM by Young Living products are formulated free of synthetic fragrance—just one more expression of our unwavering commitment to clean beauty. Featuring the Sheerlumé Brightening Complex, the BLOOM by Young Living Brightening Skin Care Collection is loaded with antioxidants to help intensify hydration, minimize the appearance of future damage, and help support the appearance of an uneven skin tone.

It’s loaded with Hyaluronic acid…  so amazing! Hyaluronic Acid is a clear, gooey substance that is naturally created by our bodies. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist. It’s so amazing because it supports healthier, more supple skin, can quicken the skin’s healing process, and could even reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! But you’ll definitely want to use the 3 part system. HA is very light viscosity so it will evaporate quickly, be sure to lock in that hydration with the lotion!


Pracaxi seed oil brightens and gives skin a radiant glow
Plumeria extract provides skin with a smoother texture
Helps restore the appearance of an uneven skin tone
Restores pH balance
Reduces the appearance of dark spots
Hydrates the skin and strengthens the moisture barrier
Made with naturally derived, gentle ingredients
Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and cruelty free
Formulated without gluten, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, sulfates, petroleum, and mineral oil

The BLOOM line includes: BLOOM Brightening Cleanser, BLOOM Brightening Essence & BLOOM Brightening Lotion.

To sum it all up…
You can’t go wrong with either! 

Bloom is a brightening line for any kind of skin, based on Sheerlume (the cleanser smells just like sheerlume… it’s divine!!)
I think it’s especially well-suited for oily skin types.

ART might be a better fit for dry or combination skin at any age, but focusing more on those who are wanting to turn back the clock. (Often the fave for the “mature” crowd, especially combined with a heavier moisturizer like Intensive or Sandalwood)

The Scents of Fall: Clove, Nutmeg & Cinnamon Bark

These are three of my favorite oils when it comes to those yummy fall scents and all the immune support!! Try them in the diffuser together or on their own to fill your house with all the fall spicy yumminess, with the added benefits of all the immune supporting properties. What’s so great about these oils?!

Clove oil has a spicy, warm scent that’s instantly familiar because of its connection to fall and winter holidays. To produce Clove essential oil, the flower bud and plant stem are steam distilled, and the rich, strong oil that results from this process contains eugenol. This powerful constituent makes it a potent essential oil, and Clove oil uses include topical applications such as massage oils and personal care products.

Nutmeg has a warm, spicy aroma that is energizing and uplifting. Nutmeg oil has many health benefits, including cognitive function support, immune support, and powerful antioxidants.

Warm and comforting, Cinnamon Bark essential oil’s familiar aroma comes from the naturally occurring constituent cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamon Bark oil is a key part of our proprietary, top-selling Thieves essential oil blend, combining with Clove essential oil to give Thieves its signature spicy aroma.

During autumn and the holiday season, there’s no smell like Cinnamon Bark to evoke memories of fall and holiday celebrations. Diffuse Cinnamon Bark in your kitchen and living room to create a warm, comforting, and inviting environment for your family and guests. For a festive twist, diffuse Cinnamon Bark with Frankincense, Orange, Tangerine, Clove, or Nutmeg.

Use a carrier oil to apply these oils topically as they are considered “hot” oils and may be sensitive to the skin. All of these oils smell amazing and have so many beneficial properties. Also, be sure to try their vitality oil counterparts for even more amazing ways to use these oils!!
