Éminence Organic Skin Care Superfood Booster-Powder couldn’t have landed on my desk at a more perfect time. The new vitamin-rich formula is designed to help even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of dark spots, and promote healthier-looking skin overall—and as a new mom in the process of sleep-training my eight-month-old, I’ve been looking, well, tired. And that pregnancy glow I was blessed with last year? Officially gone. My skin has been in desperate need of a pick-me-up, and the Superfood Booster-Powder is proving to be up for the challenge.
Mixing the ultrafine supercharging powder in with your favorite cream moisturizer is like blending up a nutritious smoothie for your face. It’s a simple, seamless way to kick your routine up a notch. Here’s why I’m hooked.
The ingredients are major (and clean).
Becoming a mom has definitely made me more aware of what I put on my skin. And because I’m breastfeeding, injectables and certain components like retinoids are completely off the table. I appreciate that Éminence uses certified-organic ingredients that are free of potentially harsh chemicals like parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, mineral oils, and artificial colorants and fragrances—all without sacrificing efficacy.
The standout ingredient that is in Superfood Booster-Powder is Kakadu plum, an antioxidant-rich fruit with high levels of vitamin C that helps minimize the appearance of dark spots. The powder also contains coix seed (a botanical source of niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3), which helps brighten; spirulina (blue-green algae that contains vitamin K) to help reinforce the skin barrier, and sweet potato (a source of beta-carotene) to help reduce visible signs of aging.
It’s easy to use.
Listen, at this point in the motherhood game I can barely keep track of what day it is, so anything even remotely complicated isn’t going to work. Mixing the powder with moisturizer may sound like a mini science project, but it’s a quick and easy step—trust me.
After cleansing morning and night, I add one scoop (using the included dosing spoon) to a dollop of the Éminence Organic Skin Care Coconut Age Corrective Moisturizer, my current go-to because it contains a natural retinol-alternative complex. I just swirl the formulas together with a clean finger and then apply all over my face.
The powder has helped make my complexion look bright and more awake, with minimal effort on my part. It’s the boost my skin needed—and deserved.
