I have questions about Barrier Booster Moisturiser

After using Barrier Booster Moisturiser, my face is oily or I noticed my pores are enlarged.
If that’s the case, it means that it’s too oily for you. Everybody has different degrees of dryness and requires different amount of oil. Barrier Booster Moisturiser contains a small percentage of our proprietary oil blend that is beneficial for acne-prone skin. You can try mixing a little bit of Barrier Booster Moisturiser with Hydrating Serum and apply together. Jasmine, our founder, uses about 3 grain size of moisturiser to one full pump of Hydrating Serum.

How does it help to “Barrier Boost”?
The moisturiser has a blend of skin lipid-identical ingredients like ceramides, cholesterol and free fatty acids. These ingredients hold skin cells together like glue, reinforcing the skin barrier. By reinforcing skin barrier, hydration increases leading to smooth plump skin and decreases skin sensitivity.

If it contains oil, will it clog up my pores?
These antioxidants-rich oils are specially selected as they are beneficial for breakout-prone skin. These proprietary blend of plant oils with natural Vitamin E moisturizes and doesn’t clog up pores. It helps to balance sebum production.

Do I still need to use Hydrating Serum before using Barrier Booster Moisturiser?
Yes. We highly recommend that you use hydrating serum as it adds water and holds water in your skin. 64% of skin is water, so hydration is absolutely necessary. Barrier Booster Moisturiser serves to add oil and lock in the hydration.

I find that Barrier Booster Moisturiser is not moisturising enough? What should I do?
You can mix 1-2 drops of Skinlycious Balancing Facial Oil with the moisturiser and apply. Our oil layering is only recommended for very dry skin or in harsh climates.

Do I still need to use Barrier Booster Moisturiser when I’m already using Balancing Facial Oil?
Barrier Booster Moisturiser has more than just the oils in Balancing Facial Oil. It also has ceramides and 4 plant extracts that help strengthen skin barrier and moisturise. We do highly recommend that you layer on pure oil after applying moisturiser.

I think you misspelled squalene. Am I reading this correctly?
No, we didn’t misspelled squalene. Squalene is found naturally in our skin. But we use squalane derived from sugarcane in our Barrier Booster Moisturiser. Squalane is created by hydrogenation of squalene. Due to the complete saturation of squalane, it cannot oxidise anymore. A study has shown that oxidation of Squalene leads to acne, hence by adding Squalane, less squalene will be produced and in turn helps in reducing acne.
