Our exciting new BOOSTERS have just launched and the most common question we’ve been asked is “what’s the difference between a serum and a booster?” – well, let us tell you…


Serums are formulated with a single hero ingredient. This ingredient is a powerhouse but is usually at levels that are manageable for all skin types and can be paired with day and night creams for an added boost.

Boosters and Supershots

Boosters are exactly that, a boosted version of a serum. These are the superheroes of any skincare regime. A booster can either be formulated with higher levels of single ingredients, or by using dual ingredients that have been carefully selected as “soulmate” ingredients that marry together to deliver results.

When should I use a serum vs a booster

There is a place for both serums and boosters within your skincare regimes. In some instances where you might want to use one or the other would be if you have particularly sensitive skin or are looking to layer your serum with other serums or treatment products. If you’re looking to use both with the same ingredient, we would recommend using the serum in the AM and booster in the PM, or pair with alternative ingredients AM and PM to activate different skin benefits.

Let us introduce you to your new BFFs…

Vitamin c 12% Supershot £8.99 RRP – The BFF who makes your day so much ‘brighter’

Packed with a punch, our Vitamin C SUPERSHOT is formulated with 12% Vitamin C, and we’re certain it’ll become that one BFF who is always brightening your day.

This little superstar can be used both AM and PM, but for more sensitive skin types we recommend using our Vitamin C 3% in the AM and our booster in the PM. Use after cleansing and before moisturising.

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + Triple Ceramide Complex £8.99 RRP – The BFF who makes sure you stay ‘hydrated’

If you suffer with dry, dehydrated skin then this is absolutely the booster for you. Formulated with 2% Hyaluronic Acid and we have specifically used varying molecular weights to penetrate multiple layers of the skin, targeting dry skin at every level.

Like all of our boosters, this can be used both AM and PM. Use after cleansing and before moisturising.

Marine Collagen + Multi-Peptides £8.99 RRP – The BFF who makes the decisions and is ‘firm’ but fair

Last but definitely not least, this booster is all singing, all dancing –  with a tiny bit of shimmer to give you that perfect no makeup glow. Formulated with Marine Collagen and a blend of Peptides which are known to specifically to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but also help to create plumper, more supple skin.
