Supercharge your skincare with The Social Butterfly Gift Set, curated with the party lover in mind to ensure they walk into the (virtual) party with confident skin, thanks to the Skinsmiths Retinol Booster and moisturiser of choice. Unleash the power of Vitamin A with the Retinol Booster to start the journey to smoother skin. The longer this collagen boosting, skin smoothing essential is used, the better the results. The Skinsmiths hack is to either use alone or mix a few drops into a favourite moisturiser to lower the dose while the skin gets used to the powerful active ingredient.
The Daily Moisturiser keeps skin hydrated all day, every day. This lightweight, fast-absorbing formula feels great and is ideal for all skin types. This lightweight moisturiser does what it promises – it provides the skin the care it deserves with a little extra hydration reinforcement — for softer, smoother, happier skin. For those with oilier skin, control shine thanks to the Hyaluronic acid in the formulation whilst maintaining the right moisture balance.
