Even the greatest skincare routine can do with a boost, and now you can do just that with the new generation of powders and serums.
But is it really worth the extra investment?
Skincare expert, Sarah Chapman thinks so: “They are the new skin essentials really, water-based for easy absorption of high levels of actives with concentrations of specific potent ingredients - it makes for quicker and more dramatic results.
The beauty of boosters is that when you need a little extra help, you don’t have to change from beloved products, simply add a booster into masks, serums or creams - they are so versatile.”
