My Current Favourites
After using these serums for around three weeks it is time for a review!
I’m a sucker for a good serum and what I love about Boost Lab is that everything is so straightforward. There’s a clear explanation of what each serum does for your skin and even better if you head over to their website you can take the skin advisor to help you find the right products for your skin type.
Retinol Night Renewal Serum
I love love, retinol it’s my holy grail. If you haven’t started using retinol I highly recommend reading into it! Before this lovely serum entered my life, I used to apply retinol in oil form and I found that it irritated my skin and broke me out. However, I always thought it was just the side effects of Retinol up until I started using this. It’s oil free (which is why I feel that I am not breaking out) and contains soothing organic Aloe Vera and Bisabolol. The emulsion of 2% Granactive Retinoid and Retinol promotes skin renewal, improves skin hydration, and rebalances uneven complexions.
2-D Hyaluronic Hydro Boost Serum
An award winning product for good reason as it helps hydrate your skin to fight the signs of dry and irritated skin. It forms a transparent film on your skin to lock in moisture, while also strengthening your skin’s moisture barrier to soothe and reduce the symptoms of sensitive skin. I find that this Hyaluronic Acid absorbs quickly into my skin without leaving me with that tacky/sticky feeling IYKYK! Formulated with two types of Bio-Hyaluronic Acid and infused with Provitamin B5 for that extra boost of skin conditioning.
Vitamin B3 Blemish Rescue Serum
This Blemish Rescue Serum is an oil-free serum that delivers an intensive Vitamin B3 concentrate to help reduce skin blemishes, acne, enlarged pores, redness and oily skin. This multi-action formula has improved my uneven skin tone and I don’t know if it’s the mixture of these serums combined or this particular one that has truly helped clear out my skin, but hey whatever it is, it’s working! Also this serum forms an invisible, breathable shield to protect our skin from all the nasties, which is great if you live in the city like me.
AHA Resurfacing Serum
The AHA resurfacing serum actively removes dead cells without the risk of micro-tearing thanks to the patented time-release delivery release system of lactic acid to promote gentle exfoliation and increased cell turnover. Infused with Aloe Vera & Manuka Honey to soothe and smooth while Arginine reduces inflammation and refines skin texture for a brighter, even complexion.
