blackheads? fine lines? dry skin? breakouts? I gotchu.
our selection of highly effective boosters can help you target a variety of skincare concerns and upgrade your creams and serums.
I did you a solid by developing 6 easy-AF boosters that address everything from fine lines and rosacea flare-ups to stress-induced breakouts.
we’re talking gentle ingredients like sea buckthorn and bakuchiol to replace traditional vitamin c and retinol, with hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, lactic acid, and glycolic acid to stimulate the production of collagen, gently exfoliate and improve your skin’s texture.
don't @ me when your flatmate calls you out for using up all the counter space in the bathroom (good skin is worth the drama!).

hyaluronic acid: helps your thirsty, thirsty skin retain moisture and look rejuvenated, dewy and plumped. a classic for a reason!
vitamin B5: this little guy is a humectant that attracts moisture and holds water in the skin, allowing the skin to produce moisture and hydrate from within. it’s also anti-inflammatory and helps with redness and irritation from environmental stimuli.

niacinamide (aka vitamin B3): keeps your skin in check and regulates oil production, so pores are clear and breakouts stay at bay. it fades hyperpigmentation by regulating your pigment-making cells. it soothes redness with its anti-inflammatory powers. it protects from free-radical damage (air pollution, UVs, smoking, alcohol, poor nutrition, etc…) and it hydrates really deep by making your skin produce more hyaluronic acid
raspberry: one of the only fruits that are naturally high in salicylic acid, which is a favourite of most people in natural acne treatments.
- lactic acid: lactic acid to mildly exfoliate your skin for instant glow and radiance. it removes your dull dead cells on the surface of your skin and restores smoothness and clarity.
- buckthorn: is like the new açai berry, but so much better. this berry contains over 190 nutrients and phytonutrients, and an incredible concentration of anti-aging vitamin C, 12 times higher than that of an orange. impressive sh*t people.
got it like that:
- bakuchiol: the plant-based ingredient that mimics the glow-boosting and skin-smoothing effects of retinol, minus the irritating side effects. in short, this stuff is a gentler natural alternative to retinol but still packs a strong punch.
- glycolic acid: works by dissolving the glue that holds together your dead skin cells. so it lifts the pigment from your skin and increases collagen production, without tearing your skin apart, like an aggressive scrub or exfoliating brush.
- chamomile: will soothe and calm the effect of glycolic acid.

how to use
use twice a day (in the morning and evening) to help plump and soften skin. layer it under a moisturiser and/or face oil. you can also use it as a booster to practically all our other products.
if you’ve got any leftovers, don’t wash it off. use it on your hair or your nails. if your hair splits at the end or occasionally have cracked nails, this is going to help 😉

our boosters are like supplements for your skin. you can add them to your daily regimen as standalone products or mix them with other products to improve their performance.
use come clean every day, best used nightly. mix with serums, creams or masks to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your clean dry skin.
use light up anytime of day. mix with serums, creams or masks, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your skin. allow to absorb 2-3 min before applying makeup.

use got it like that anytime of day. mix with serums, creams or masks, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your skin.
unlike conventional retinol, bakuchiol doesn’t increase your sensitivity to sunlight. you can use daily or as often as needed.
use recovery on at night to avoid light sensitivity. mix with serums, creams or masks, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your skin.
if your skin is on the sensitive side, start by using it twice a week. at first, glycolic acid may accelerate whatever pimples and other skin conditions were already working under the surface of your skin and quicken their appearance on the surface by speeding up the entire cycle dramatically. please do not be alarmed.
this is completely normal and part of the process. just like you'd breakout if you went for your first facial, you know? you shouldn’t be afraid of purging as it’s not your body rejecting or having a bad reaction to the booster, it's just accelerating what’s already happening to eventually clear it.
you can also apply to your hair to exfoliate your scalp and get rid of dandruff. it will also help retain moisture and prevent your hair from breaking.
note: you might get slightly red the first time you use it. not to worry, your skin’s just getting used to glycolic acid. these effects fade after several uses. for optimal results, we recommend to use it consistently for four weeks.
