[productsample] The very first thing I noticed about the new Elemis Superfood Boosters is that the box is huge for the product. Luckily, it’s cardboard and can be recycled but it’s definitely a mismatch. After that though, it’s all good.
These boosters are tapping into the trend of customised skin care. On the one hand, I love the concept of being your own skin care expert – nobody is more in tune with your skin than you, but on the other, there are so many products that have built-in boosts; they’re just not billed as such. Anyway, from these two new launches that will hit shelves in August, the AHA Glow Booster is the one that grabbed me straight away.
If you have sensitive or reddened skin that’s worse with dryness, you’ll veer towards the Cica Calm booster formulated with fermented cica and agave – the ferment has prebiotic properties. It’s aimed at those who want to reduce redness and generally calm their skin. AHA Glow Booster is a zing for dull skin – again, prebiotic with fermented pumpkin and acerola cherry, both of which contain AHAs and enzymes so will encourage your skin to constantly slough away the dead cells that inhibit brightness. For both, key ingredients are fermented rice water, prebiotics and fermented green tea seed oil.
I haven’t put either to the test yet so this post is for information only. Now I think about it, it’s not really clear from the materials I have whether you add the booster to other skin care or use neat on the skin. Elemis suggests that you add three drops – but I’m not sure to what! They are very small bottles – 9ml – and at £27 each, I’m expecting very great things!
