Hello! How are you? Today I bring you by popular request a very interesting post for those who really want to know a little in depth the products that I recommend and want to know which ones I like the most. In this post I’m going to talk about the best boosters for less than 10€ (plus a bonus gift). Sometimes it seems very difficult to get lost among so many molecules and compounds, after all, here we are not Louis Pasteur.
On this post I explained in detail what a booster is, what characterizes it and why they are necessary in your beauty routine. To make a brief reminder: boosters are products that we apply right after the serum and just before the moisturizer to provide our skin with extra nutrition that the rest of cosmetics are unable to give. With them we get a good dose of antioxidants, mattifiers, moisturizers, etc. that gives us a much more effective result than the simple use of the serum and moisturizer. With a couple of droplets you will achieve wonders, that’s for sure.
Remember that in this post I talked in more detail about the basic tricks to understand the labels of cosmetic products, so if you are interested in the subject and want to learn a little more about the subject (and impress all your friends looking like Marie) Curie) you can take a look.
Sooo, in this post I’m going to talk a little about my favorite boosters and I’ll tell you what makes them special so that you can choose the one that best suits your needs. Among the products that I will talk to you about are:
In this post I gave you in more detail my opinions about the EUK 134 0.1% of The Ordinary. This is one of the most iconic niche brands that we can find in the market today. The Ordinary is part of DECIEM, a Canadian conglomerate of companies that is based on the development of very high quality formulas (probably at the highest level of the market) and their sale at very low prices.
EUK 134 is a molecule that helps fight the signs of aging in a very particular way. Specifically, it focuses on protecting the skin’s natural antioxidants from free radicals that destroy them and make us more vulnerable to damage caused by cold, heat, radiation, pollution, etc.
In this case, The Ordinary offers us a product with a proportion of EUK of 0.1% that surpasses (with much difference) to that of other products in the market. And you will think: but with that small amount really gives results? The answer is a resounding yes. I have incorporated it into my morning routines and I am delighted with the result. It makes me feel protected and I see my skin more rejuvenated and healthy.
I want to make special emphasis on a very important fact: you should not combine the EUK 134 with other products with a very acidic composition (for example, those with high vitamin C combinations), since these make it completely lose its effectiveness. Therefore, although the brand indicates that we can add it to day and night routines, I prefer to use it in the mornings.
WHAT I LIKE THE MOST: provides a great protection against free radicals to help prevent aging.
WHAT I LIKE THE LEAST: The texture is slightly oily. You already know that my skin has an oily tendency and this always creates a bit of alarm, although I have already got used to it and, truthfully, it does not oil the skin at all.
I already told you about this booster by The Ordinary in this post, so if you want to read my opinion about it in greater depth you can take a look at the review.
This cream is one of the most iconic products of The Ordinary. They are, in part, responsible for having hooked me to continue sharing with you what I learn and what I know. When I started reading about it, I began to understand the importance of vitamin C and all the good things it can contribute to our skin.
I do not want to go into much detail because I will publish a post soon talking about the subject, but I want to briefly explain why vitamin C is so important to maintain a young and healthy appearance. Vitamin C is currently experiencing a tremendous boom, if you look at all the major brands are beginning to advertise products that contain it among its ingredients, but not all have the same effectiveness. And what is vitamin C for? Well, it’s simple: it has a great effectiveness as an antioxidant and when it comes to diminishing skin spots and improving brightness.
Again, with this Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%, The Ordinary offers us a very inexpensive product, with a huge concentration of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), which far exceeds other products that can be found in the market.
Some have asked me several times how to use this Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% of The Ordinary. As you can see, the package is cream type. To use it, you only have to apply it between the serum and the moisturizer or in combination with any of them. I prefer to use it in my night routines and, truthfully, I am very happy with the result. Remember to avoid combining it with other acids to prevent irritation.
WHAT I LIKE THE MOST: It brings an incredible dose of vitamin C to the skin to help prevent the signs of aging and reduce spots.
WHAT I LIKE THE LEAST: Its texture is gritty and leaves a itchy feeling a bit unpleasant when used alone (however, when combined with the serum or moisturizer that sensation disappears completely).
3. REVOLUTION SKINCARE STABILISED ACTIVE COLLAGEN.
Here you can read my detailed review of this Revolution Skincare booster. It is likely that the brand sounds like hearsay (or not even that), since it is very new and it’s still beginning to be distributed. Revolution Skincare is the new range of products for skin care of the London firm Revolution Beauty. Some compare Revolution Skincare with The Ordinary for the composition of their products and the quality of their ingredients, but in that latter area The Ordinary shows a waaay better quality.
I have been using this booster for almost a month almost daily and I am quite happy with the results it has offered me. As I was saying, I had been reading about the brand for a short time and finding good opinions about its products, so I decided to launch and buy a few to see how they are.
Collagen is a protein that can be applied topically (or are already already drinks based on it) and that helps keep the skin firm, elastic, and hydrated, thus reducing the signs of aging. Providing an extra dose of collagen to our skin never hurts, and with this booster you will get it easily.
WHAT I LIKE THE MOST: It has a texture that I love, soft and light, that is absorbed quickly.
WHAT I LIKE THE LEAST: The presence of parabens among its ingredients.
So far I have shared with you my opinion about the best boosters for less than 10€. As you can see, each one has its particularities that makes it especially good or effective to incorporate it into your routines, it is up to you to choose which one you like the most or which one you think will best suit your needs. However, as they are quite iconic and I think they deserve an honorable mention, I want to briefly tell you about two other boosters that are a bit priced but whose composition and results make them deserve to be here.
BONUS 1: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE SUPERBERRY HYDRATE AND GLOW OIL.
Youth To The People is currently one of the most important niche cosmetics brands in the United States. Probably, those who are a little interested in this world will have seen that their products are everywhere. A very careful aesthetics and high quality compositions make it one of the favorite brands of many.
This Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil booster from Youth To The People is an oil that combines the properties of maqui, acai and goji (among many other natural ingredients) to create an excellent combination of antioxidants to give your skin a luminous look, hydrated and rejuvenated. In principle it is designed to be used in day and night routines in order to achieve a much better result.
WHAT I LIKE THE MOST: It has a complete combination of ingredients to give your skin that extra dose of antioxidants you need so much.
WHAT I LIKE THE LEAST: I think it has a price a bit excessive. I understand that it is not cosmetics that stands out for being inexpensive and that it brings great results, so it must be worth it.
Okay, I’m not going to stay without making an honorable mention to Korean cosmetics, which lately is everywhere. Klairs is a Korean brand born within Wishtrend, one of the largest shops in the sector (I talk in more detail about this on my post on Korean beauty shops).
Many will know the brand by its toner, which is everywhere and from which all who have tried it speak wonders. I just bought it and when I have incorporated it into my routines and have an opinion formed I will talk about it in detail. In this case I bring you another product that I just bought: the Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop by Klairs. This booster comes loaded with antioxidants, such as vitamin C and centella asiatica to help prevent the signs of aging and maintain a uniform skin tone.
WHAT I LIKE THE MOST: It has a fairly clean composition with a lot of ingredients of vegetable origin.
WHAT I LIKE THE LEAST: It’s slightly priced, although it promises great results.
You can get the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop on Wishtrend, on Yesstyle and on Amazon.
If you want to know how my experience buying at Wishtrend was, you can check my post on Where to buy Korean cosmetics.
Here I finish my comparison of the best boosters you can buy for less than 1€0. You see that it is easy to find a product that suits your needs and what you really want, so I hope this post has helped you. If you have any questions or want to talk about a specific product you can leave a comment and I will answer as soon as possible.
