I haven’t used much of Elizabeth Arden’s products but out of the 2 I previously tried, I fell in love with one which was the 8 Hr Miracle Mist. I wasn’t really looking for Elizabeth Arden products last year but when I came across the Superstart Skin renewal Booster and I was quite interested in it.
What the brand says:
Elizabeth Arden SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster helps restore the healthy look of skin’s surface layer, fortifying its natural ability to repair and renew. Designed for Every Woman. Every Skin Type.
So last Christmas, I purchased the 30ml booster in a gift set forgetting I had already told my bf I wanted it for Christmas lol. I ended up with 2 of these which I didn’t mind because I could really test out the claims of the product. I used the first one earlier this year, finished it and went a month without it before starting my second bottle. I’ve been using my second bottle for about a month and a half now.
The booster is a lightweight serum which feels really nice and soothing on the skin with a delicate subtle scent. I use it mostly in my evening routine but I have also added it to my morning routine a lot of times. I use it after toning before any serums. The booster alone feels hydrating on the skin and I haven’t experienced any pilling when I have layered other products on top of this. I really like the product on its own and I liked that it helped to soothe my skin when I damaged my skin barrier due to over acid use.
The booster contains some probiotic and other ingredients that help to strengthen the skin barrier keeping it healthy. You also get some anti-microbial ingredients in here as well as some hydrating ingredients
Does it help to boost the effectiveness of other products? I used the booster with products I haven’t used before so whether it helped them be more effective who knows. Did I notice any difference with the time it takes to notice results from products? No, not really.
I like the booster as a standalone product because there were many times I layered simple hydrating serums over this and called it a night. I like that it helped restore my skin when it was irritated from over acid use, in fact I really like this for helping to soothe and restore the skin. It layers well, has an amazing texture and it’s a good product on its own.
I guess I would have to use the booster with a product I am quite familiar with in order to test out the claims of boosting a product’s effectiveness.
I will repurchase but not straight away, maybe at Christmas when it comes back in a gift set.
