    Kevin - Teleurgesteld
    Over het algemeen ben ik uiterst tevreden met al mijn Paula's choice producten. Ik was ook erg enthousiast om de Retinol 1 % booster toe te voegen aan mijn gezichtsverzorging routine. Echter ben ik zwaar teleurgesteld met dit product, niet zo zeer om de inhoud en werking, maar met name om het flacon. Wanneer je licht op het pompje drukt spuit er een enorme straal product/ creme eruit, waarmee ik zowat m'n hele lichaam mee kan insmeren (beetje overdreven gezegd). Ik ga hiervan uit dat het om een productiefout gaat en heb ik telefonisch aangegeven. Reactie hierop van de klantenservice waarmee ik aan de telefoon was, bevestigde de klacht, dat er inderdaad te veel product eruit komt, maar daar moet ik mij maar bij neer leggen... !!? Dit is voor mij reden genoeg om de Retinol Booster niet meer aan te schaffen. Het is al een vrij prijzig product, maar als het dan ook nog eens te veel inhoud eruit komt elke keer, terwijl een klein pompje voldoende is... Dat is en vindt ik echter weggegooid geld.
    Imke - Prima retinol product!
    Al jaren heb ik ervaring met vitamine A crèmes (die die je alleen op doktersrecept kunt krijgen). Vitamine A crèmes waren voor mijn huid al vrij snel te heftig. Daarom nu na al die jaren overgestapt op een retinol product (uiteraard van PC!), in de hoop dat die wat 'milder' is. En dat is hij, maar wel met goed resultaat. Meestal vermeng ik deze booster met mijn nachtcrème, maar ik breng hem ook wel alleen op. Voelt goed op mijn huid, trekt goed in, laat geen rare plakkerige laag achter. Heel fijn product!
    Daphne - Medium enthousiast hierover
    Vind de applicatie fijner van deze Booster dan van de 1% Clinical Retinol, namelijk de mogelijkheid om te kunnen mengen met je serum. Maar waarom is de prijs bijna hetzelfde ten opzichte van de 1% Clinical voor de helft minder hoeveelheid? Verder nog geen baanbrekende resultaten, behalve dan wat droogheid door de retinol wat wel aantoont dat het werkt.

    Customer Care: De prijs van een product wordt o.a. bepaald door de formulering (gebruikte ingrediënten) en de kosten voor het ontwikkelen van een product.

  • Faq

    Can I use 1% Retinol Booster when I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

    Due to the higher amount of retinol being closer to the strength of prescription retinoids (which are contraindicated for use while pregnant or breastfeeding), we advise against such use unless OK’ed by your doctor. If your physician does not provide a clear answer, it’s generally best to be cautious and refrain from use until you are no longer pregnant or breast feeding.

    What is the difference between the 1% Retinol Booster and the Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment?

    To start, there are similarities between the 1% Retinol Booster and Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment. Both contain a high-level of 1% retinol, and each is formulated with peptides and a significant amount of antioxidants and anti-irritants. Where they really differ is in terms of texture, usage, and which skin types they are ideal for (although both products are suitable for all skin types). The 1% Retinol Booster has a fluid texture that allows it to be mixed in with your favourite serum or moisturiser. Its formula is thinner, lighter, and especially well-suited for normal to oily or breakout prone-skin. It’s also a phenomenal option for ANYONE who wants to boost their current skincare routine with a higher strength of retinol. Adding 1% Retinol Booster to your serum or moisturiser allows it to work more gently on your skin, so you can use it more frequently – even as a daily part of our routine. The Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment has a creamy lotion texture that is most ideal for normal to dry skin. It’s an intensive high-percentage retinol treatment that a consistent retinol user looking for powerful results will love. It’s best to slowly add this to your routine – no more than a pea-sized amount up to 3 times per week to start – and adjust based on your individual experience.

    Can I use 1% Retinol Booster if I am using other Paula’s Choice products that contain retinol?

    Yes, though you may wish to alternate them—this will depend on how your skin responds. You can also apply your usual retinol product (serum or moisturiser) all over your face and neck, then apply 1% Retinol Booster to areas showing more advanced signs of ageing: Crow’s feet around the eyes, laugh lines, expression lines, and dark spots.
