Ceramide Barrier Booster 30ml
A ceramide rich booster that helps balance the natural skin barrier and lock in moisture. Ceramides are considered the building blocks of the skin; the mortar between the skin cells (the bricks). Uniquely formulated with a Ceramide Complex, this featherweight fragrance-free gel-cream helps to comfort, soothe and restore the skin’s barrier. Skin is left looking hydrated, nourished and healthy. By strengthening the skin barrier, skin feels more in balance.
What is a booster? The brand new booster category has a clue in the name: they give your skin and your existing regime a major ‘boost’ to balance skin. Consider them a targeted treatment with a high concentration of ingredients blended for specific skin concerns. They allow users to customise their regime and give their skin an extra boost when it needs it most.
Maintains the skin’s natural barrier function, leaving skin hydrated, nourished and healthy. Calms and soothes compromised skin.
For all skin types, the fragrance-free formula acts as a wonderful treatment for stressed, sensitive skin that is prone to blemishes, the appearance of redness, severe dryness, or for anyone that exposed their skin to regular use of ingredients like Vitamin A and acids who are experiencing sensitivity as a result. Dermatologically tested to make it suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
Not sure where a booster sits in your routine? We recommend layering it in after your serums and before your moisturiser/SPF.
Allow your skin to absorb each layer before applying the next.
Apply twice daily to cleansed skin.
Use AM and PM.
Use within 6 months once opened.

“I love this cream! I've had rosacea on my cheeks for some years now and no creams have made an impact at all. The ceramide cream has a beautiful, cooling, calming sensation on my skin, I really enjoy the process of applying it. And the reduction of redness on my skin has been quite amazing - no other product has made an impact at all. I have a particularly stubborn patch on my right cheek which has calmed down a lot. I love this cream and it will become an essential staple in my skincare routine"
Amazing! Finally my answer for my skin!
I have suffered with acne roseacea and the past 6 months it has been so bad, nothing calmed it - until this booster! This calmed and soothed on first use! I have been using twice a day and my spots have gone, I have more even skin tone and my skin feels so moisturised. I have just started to use the blemish serum in conjunction with this and results are even better! I am sure that I will be confident to wear no makeup again very soon.
I bought this as my menopausal skin had gone so dry and red on the sides of my cheeks and felt very uncomfortable. This product is amazing. The texture feels like silk and it blends really well. After 3 weeks my skin looks so great and feels so soft. Definitely recommend it. ?
Build back that moisture barrier
So I love this product- however, once again I can only award 4 stars as I feel like the pump action is not sufficient for the product. I had to unscrew the top to get it out on most occasions which is incredibly inconvenient- please improve the pump bottle and I will reorder
Plumping star performer
Absolutely love this product- it has made a huge difference to my skin in terms of barrier replenishment- I’m only giving 4 stars though as once again I feel like the pump is insufficient to dispense the sumptuous product- I end up having to remove the top and tap out into my hand - please look at the pump dispenser on this and the hylauronic spray which I also had a problem with
Love the product but the packaging is really bad. The pump doesn’t work so I find myself getting the product out with the back end of it. I was told it was a one off but , after reading the reviews, looks like more people have the same issue. A jar would be so much easier ! Im not sure I’ll buy it again…
Really lovely ceramide booster.
I love this ceramide booster especially as it’s fragranced free as I’m allergic to aroma therapy oils, so have very reactive facial skin. My only gripe is the dispenser pump, which most of the time doesn’t work, so I end up unscrewing the top of the bottle to put some into my hands and apply to my face. That said I’m on my third bottle and my facial skin has much improved redness has damped down and my skin has a general glow. So I love the product but please do something about the pump because it’s been a problem on every one that I’ve used. Thanks.
Instead of calming my sensitive and rosacea prone skin this product inflamed it, made it red and itchy. It is not cheap and it doesn't work! I won't be buying this again.
Lovely booster, but sadly not for me.
Loved the texture of this booster and it made my skin feel comfortable and soft. After a few days, however, I noticed a few spots forming round my mouth, so I've stopped using it. I may try again, but I think it's not going to be for me.
In terms of the quality of the product, the cream feels really nice and cooling on the skin and dries down quickly, so doesn't leave any greasy residue. The packaging however is the reason why I wouldn't repurchase. The pump is very temperamental as sometimes it seems that the product gets kind of clogged in the pump, meaning I'm endlessly pressing down on the pump to get even a little bit of product out. Additionally, there is loads of product left in the bottom of my bottle, but I can't get it out as nothing is pumping out, so I feel like a lot of product gets wasted in this packaging. Maybe a tube would be better.
I hope this helps although I’m having a break from the product. I was very pleased with it and it felt nice and cool on the skin. But then I noticed some increased redness, which is why I’ve stopped using it for now. I will try again as it might not be the serum that has caused it. I use balance me moisturiser and rose oil which I’m very happy with, but had hoped the serum would reduce the redness further. We’ll see
