What makes skin care so fun is that it gives you the opportunity to play. Test out different formulas, get to know the ingredients you love, and find the products that bring you joy. When you finally land on your holy grail face cream, it can be hard to want to let it go—even when you’re yearning to switch things up. With the new Superfood Booster-Powder from Éminence Organic Skin Care, you can get the best of both worlds—add a teensy scoop of the powder to your favorite cream moisturizer and get what seems like a whole new product with a super dose of vitamin C.
The Éminence Organic Skin Care Superfood Booster-Powder ($60) gets its power from Kakadu plum, a fruit native to Australia that has 55 times the amount of vitamin C found in oranges and five times more antioxidants than blueberries. “Kakadu plum combats acne, reverses hyperpigmentation caused by UV rays, and increases the skin’s hydration,” says Tiffany Torrence, an esthetician in New Jersey. Plus, it helps to firm and tighten skin, thanks to vitamin C’s important role in collagen production.
But, the formula goes beyond just Kakdu Plum—the Éminence Superfood Booster-Powder also contains coix seed, a botanical source of niacinamide that soothes skin, brightens and evens the complexion, and regulates oil production. It also has spirulina, a blue-green algae that’s high in vitamin K to strengthen skin. Finally, it’s got sweet potato, which is packed with beta-carotene and antioxidants to rejuvenate skin while reducing visible signs of premature aging.
And because it’s all in a powder, the formula is super stable, meaning you’ll be getting a fresh dose every time instead of having a pre-mixed formula that will inevitably degrade over time.
Putting the Éminence Superfood Booster-Powder into action
Using the Éminence Superfood Booster-Powder is simple as long as you do one very important thing—DON’T lose the little scoop it comes with. It is very small and allows you to scoop just the right amount of powder so that it mixes well into your moisture.
Start by grabbing your favorite simple, cream-based moisturizer (the powder doesn’t blend well with other types, like gel). Opt for one that doesn’t have any active ingredients like retinoids, vitamin C, or alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids so you don’t create the skin-care equivalent of a nuclear bomb in terms of irritation. Add enough face cream to cover your face and neck to the palm of your hand, then add a single scoop of powder—”A level scoop, not a heaping scoop,” explains Brian Goodwin, medical esthetician and lead educator at Éminence. Rub your hands together, and in seconds you’ll have a new-and-improved face cream. Slather it on and let your skin enjoy all the benefits.
Using this powder lets me play cosmetic chemist in a measured and safe way. I love how easily it mixes into creamy formulas and allows me to create a super potent blend at home. As long as I don’t overdo it on the powder, it melts into my moisturizer perfectly without feeling grainy or dry. Once I have it on my face I know I’m giving my complexion a major boost while protecting it from environmental stressors that can lead to hyperpigmentation—my main skin-care nemesis. If you also love to play and want to give your routine a boost, get the Éminence Superfood Booster-Powder into your medicine cabinet ASAP.
