Over the last few months most of the products I’ve been taken with or used most regularly have been skincare products. In preparation for my wedding earlier this year I put a lot of my energy into getting my skin in tip top condition (or at least as tip top as I could get it with just four and a half months notice), so in doing so I discovered some fabulous new products…
I picked up a bottle of Strawberry Booster from BYBI (£12.00) on a bit of a whim a few months ago whilst I was in the midst of searching for an alternative to retinol. I was hearing rave reviews all over social media and I was interested in giving it a whirl (I also picked up the 1% Bakuchiol Booster).
Strawberry Seed Oil is a relative newbie on the green beauty block and has only recently been widely used in skincare products. BYBI Strawberry Booster is made from 100% cold pressed strawberry seeds (the tiny bumpy bits on the outside of the fruit) which are considered waste from the juicing industry. The oil is super rich in the essential fatty acids Omegas 3 and 6 and particularly nourishing and soothing, so it is great for hydrating and nourishing the skin, making it an ideal additon to the routine of anyone with dry, flaky or sensitive skins. It smells absolutely divine to boot!
The booster is designed to be intergrated into your existing skincare routine and can be used on a daily basis. Either add a couple of drops to your serum or moisturiser and apply as usual or simply use it neat, pressing gently into the skin. It goes on easily and is absorbed almost instantly. It makes a great base for make-up too!
Before I finish I must give a mention to the beautiful bottle. As with all of the BYBI booster packaging, the pink bottle looks and feels beautiful – and is a visually fun addition to your bathroom shelf.
