Paula’s Choice boosters and serums focus on specific skin concerns such as enlarged pores, uneven skin tone or dehydration. They improve the skin and bring results sooner than you think. At first glance, you can’t tell the two apart, but closer inspection will reveal the differences between boosters and serums . These differentiating factors are extremely important for some skin types and skin concerns.
Remember that other skin care cosmetic companies may interpret or create booster and serum products differently from us. Therefore, we recommend that you do not use the definitions and uses we give specifically for Paula’s Choice products to determine the uses of products from other brands.
Distinguish the difference between booster and serum
Booster (Essential Booster)
Our enhancers contain either a potent concentration of a skin-critical ingredient or a blend of a specific group of ingredients where similar structures of each ingredient are combined to enhance results. These include C15 Super Booster , C25 Super Booster , 1% Retinol Booster , Hyaluronic Acid Booster , 10% Niacinamide Booster and Peptide Booster .
High concentrations can do wonders for the skin, but these amazing ingredients still need the help of other ingredients to get the most out of them. That’s why you’ll find other ingredients in our booster products such as antioxidants, skin-replenishing ingredients or skin-restoring ingredients.
Each booster product is designed to be powerful, yet exceptionally gentle and easily layerable with other products in your skincare routine. Enhancers can be applied alone as a separate step or mixed with moisturizer/serum. They can be used around the eyes. For lips, Paula’s Choice has also created a booster product that is Hyaluronic acid + Peptide Lip Booster.
Maintaining a long-term relationship with these ingredients is how you reap the real benefits. Every day, you have to help your skin do things on its own that it can’t do anymore — that’s where boosters come into play.
Our serums work in harmony with moisturizers and other skin care products by providing an advanced, similarly weighted blend of bioactive antioxidants, nourishing ingredients skin supplements and skin-restoring ingredients.
What makes our serums unique is their balanced concentration of key supporting ingredients that the skin needs to stay healthy and to repair itself, protecting itself from damage during the day. future. It’s the concentration of certain bioactive ingredients that separates serums from moisturizers. You should know that not everything your skin needs can be found in one product.
Our serum has a special texture suitable for different skin types. They range from lightweight, liquid formulas for normal to oily or combination skin to softer, smoother textures for normal to dry skin.
There is no single “best” serum, so choose a serum based on your skin type and concerns. No matter how well-formulated a serum is, if it’s not compatible with your skin type, you won’t get the results you want.
How to add Booster/Serum to your daily skin care routine
Our Boosters and Serums are made to be versatile! They can be applied in many different ways. Can be used 1-2 times/day or used on alternate days or you can apply one or more times in the morning and different times at night. There really isn’t a single usage rule; usage and frequency of use, everything can be changed to adapt to your needs.
The procedure below is a step-by-step example of how you can add one or more booster/serum products to your morning and evening skincare routine. Just make sure that applying sunscreen is the last step of your skin care routine in the morning.

Can Booster/Serum Replace Night Cream?
Maybe. For some people, especially those with oily to combination skin, a booster or serum can work on its own when applied layer upon layer without the need for a separate moisturizing step. Our boosters and serums contain mild moisturizing ingredients that even those with oily or slightly dry skin need.
