Maybe you have your favorite moisturizer, serum, or mask — and you don’t want to buy a new one or change brands — but at certain times out of the year, you need a little extra something to add to it to make it perform better. Sometimes even our lifestyles or climates can work against our favorite skincare products. Been around too much pollution? There’s help for that. Traveled too much and your skin looks tired? There’s help for that too! The good news is, you don’t have to do anything too radical or change up your routine too much.
Clarins have released these incredible new little “Boosters” that you can add to your favorite moisturizers, serums, skincare treatments/masks, and even your foundation! Each of the three boosters has its own specialty. These are highly concentrated, so you won’t want to use them alone. Partner them with your fave products — a few drops will do!
Here’s the breakdown…
Booster Detox — Congested skin? Partying, overindulging, smoky environments, extreme pollution? Booster Detox helps refresh and revive skin that’s had enough. Its unique formula is enriched with green coffee extract, a plant from tropical Africa, rich in caffeine, and known for its detoxifying properties. It helps revive radiance of a dull complexion and plumps the skin. If you’ve been around too much smoke, or maybe indulging a little bit too much — this may be a good choice for you. Just add 3-5 drops to your moisturizer, mask, serum, or foundation. $39
Booster Energy — Fatigued skin? Late nights, a hectic lifestyle, jet lag, dieting, chasing after kids—when life takes a toll on your skin, give it a tailor-made beauty boost! Booster Energy helps skin survive these daily stresses. Its unique formula is enriched with ginseng extract, a legendary Chinese plant known for its stimulating properties. Mix 3-5 drops with your moisturizer, mask, serum or foundation. $39
Booster Repair — Weakened skin? Sunburn, extreme climates, hard, salt or chlorinated water, minor cosmetic treatments? Booster Repair helps your skin fight back. Its unique formula is enriched with mimosa tenuiflora extract, a Mayan plant known for its recovering properties. This can help reduce the skin’s feelings of discomfort, optimize skin recovery, and minimize the appearance of redness. $39
As a personal testimonial, I just came home from a vacation that included being on several flights, boat trips, automobile rides, and my skin was extremely unhappy to be around a lot of cigarette smoke in the process. The only thing missing out of that equation were a few train rides! I came home and added the Booster Detox to my daytime moisturizer, and the Booster Repair to my nighttime moisturizer with great results. It’s going to take a few more days of being “home” for everything to get back to normal, but the boosters are definitely helping.
