    Default M7 Original Formula Owners...I have a question about your box.

    We know that the original formula lists 4 ingredients on the box and that the 2nd formula lists 13.

    My question is:

    What are the 4 ingredients listed on the box?


    Thank you in advance.

    My understanding is that the following constitute vintage:
    1) Original red glass bottle
    2) 4 ingredients listed on the box

    If you have those two, you are guaranteed that it is vintage. I have seen posts that maybe some of the old red glass bottles were used post reformulation (the first reformulation) before they started using the clear glass bottles with the red sticker. This would mean that they are still "reformulated" juice with a vintage bottle.

    My understanding through the official distributor of YSL into India is - pre-formulated bottles were packaged into newer boxes (which showed more ingredients and needed to because of current regulations) to show less-wear, of boxes.

    I've got the all-brown (red) bottle, but the larger list of ingredients on the box. I'd be curious to hear from more folks as to whether this is still the original formulation.

    Yup, the less ingredients the better the juice :-)

    I got the same, from India (all brown bottle) but with more ingredients - it is the vintage bottle,change in IFRA regulations that they needed to modified the boxes,even for existing juice.
