Barrier Booster Moisturiser

Moisturize while normalising sebum profile

An antioxidant rich moisturiser designed to strengthen your skin barrier function and in turn reducing sensitivity. While Barrier Booster Moisturiser moisturizes, it also balances and normalises sebum profile of your skin, especially helpful in acne-prone skin. Feel your skin softer and firmer after application.

With Skinlycious, you can customise the amount of moisture(oil) and water your skin needs.

If you need more moisture, layer on or mix in a drop or two of Balancing Facial Oil.
If you have oily skin, we would recommend you use Hydrating Serum instead. If you would like to have the benefits in Barrier Booster Moisturiser, but yet finding it a tad too oily, you can mix with Hydrating Serum.

Skin Problems Due To Lack of Moisture

Moisturize and Boost Skin Barrier

An antioxidant rich moisturizer designed to strengthen skin barrier function reducing sensivity

Key Active Ingredients

Ceramides + Cholesterol + Fatty Acid

Locks moisture into the skin and reinforces skin barrier, decreasing skin sensitivity.

Proprietary Oil Blend

Cold pressed Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Squalane, Sunflower Oil moisturizes without clogging pores, leaving skin soft and supple.

Lotus Leaf, Green Tea, Guava Leaf, Angelica Gigas Extract

A plant extract which is rich in
antioxidants and helps to ease skin irritations and inflammation. It also protects the skin from sun light, with a certain whitening effect.

PRO-VITAMIN B5 (Panthenol)

Binds and holds water in the skin, moisturizing and softening skin. Helps strengthen skin barrier.

Saccharide Isomerate

Long-lasting hydration for up to 72 hours as it cannot be washed away once absorbed. Helps to relieve sensitive skin too.

How Barrier Booster Moisturiser was Developed

To understand natural ingredients better, Jasmine specially took a diploma in organic skincare formulation. After researching on the types of oil that is beneficial for acne-prone skin, Jasmine tested and developed a proprietary oil blend (Skinlycious Balancing Facial Oil) that didn’t break her out. She then used this oil to formulate Barrier Booster Moisturiser.

After many iterations, Jasmine finalised on a formula that didn’t break her out. She then sent out 3 samples of the same formula, with difference only in the percentage of Balancing Facial Oil, to a small group of initial customers who feedback that they needed a moisturiser on top of hydrating serum. It was a blinded test. When the results came back, there was no winner among the 3 samples.

Jasmine then decided to choose the one with a lower oil percentage, so that herself (oily/normal breakout-prone skin) could use this moisturiser. And launch a pure blend of our proprietary oil as Skinlycious Balancing Facial Oil, so that the dry breakout-prone skin can customise the amount of oil they need.

Why is Skin Barrier Important?

Healthy skin barrier prevents moisture loss and defends your skin against outside aggressors.
The skin barrier is similar to a “brick wall structure”. Ceramide, Cholesterol & Fatty acid together form structural lipids, which are firmly connected to keratinocytes to stabilize the skin barrier.
Barrier Booster Moisturiser has skin identical lipids to strengthen your skin barrier.

Non-Sticky, Non-Greasy Texture

Fragrance, colorant and essential oil free. Absorbs easily.

Customise the Right Amount of
Water & Oil Your Skin Needs

Mix and match to give your skin the moisture it needs. Because only you know best.

Combination 1

HYDRATE & MOISTURIZE

Hydrating Serum adds and holds water in your skin while Barrier Booster Moisturiser adds a little oil into your skin. Layer on or mix Barrier Booster Moisturiser into Hydrating Serum to adjust the right amount of oil your skin needs.

Combination 2

MAXIMUM MOISTURIZING POWER

Layer on Balancing Facial Oil after Hydrating Serum and Barrier Booster
Moisturiser if your skin is drier. Or add
a drop or two and mix with Barrier Booster Moisturiser for just a little bit more oil.

Bottle Design

Airless pump bottle minimises contamination and keeps product fresher longer

Read about the success stories of fellow Acne Fighters & Skinlycious users.

“No more pimples
Pimples are gone and I have smooth skin now 🙂 The Glow Exfoliant works very well. Spots flatten the next day. I’m so glad to have found Skinlycious!”

“Cystic Acne Cleared”
I struggled with cystic acne for many years. When I stopped my prescription medications, my acne always came back with a vengeance.
When I chanced upon Jasmine’s story, it felt like she was telling my story. I decided to try the starter kit and never looked back. My acne is now gone and skin is clear. It’s been more than a year and my acne has not returned with continued usage of Skinlycious.

“Acne finally went away and never came back!”
My big acne got smaller the next day after applying Glow Exfoliant! After using the cleanser, my skin is soft, smooth and not dry. The whole Skinlycious range is my skin-saver. I’ve struggled with acne since my teens and I finally have clear skin at 40 years old!

“I’v gained back my confidence after 8 years of self-consciousness”
The Skinlycious Clear Skin Essentials Kit helped me get rid of the acne that I have been struggling with for 8 years. My favorite is the Glow Exfoliant because it penetrates into my skin and removes all the dirt in the pores. Redness and acne scars are gone too. My acne was completely cleared after 3 months of use!

      Hi Karen, you can add on Balancing Facial Oil either by mixing one or two more drops of oil with Barrier Booster Moisturiser and apply together. Otherwise, if your skin is very dry, you can layer on Balancing Facial Oil after Barrier Booster Moisturiser.

FAQ

Q1. Do I still need to use Hydrating Serum before using Barrier Booster Moisturiser?
A1. 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.

Q2. Is it a must to use Barrier Booster Moisturiser?
A2. For younger skin below 25, it’s not necessary to use Barrier Booster Moisturiser if you find the Hydrating Serum is moisturising enough for you. For ages above 25, we recommend that you use Barrier Booster Moisturiser to benefit from its antioxidants rich and anti-aging properties. For oily skin, you can use it as a night cream.

Q3. I find that Barrier Booster Moisturiser is not moisturising enough? What should I do?
A3. Mix 1-2 drops of oil with the moisturiser and apply. Otherwise, you can layer on Balancing Facial Oil by applying the pure oil. Our oil layering only recommended for very dry skin or in harsh climates.

Q4. After using Barrier Booster Moisturiser, my face is oily or I noticed my pores are enlarged.
A4. 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.

Q5. How does it help to “Barrier Boost”?
A5. 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.

Q6. If it contains oil, will it clog up my pores?
A6. 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.

Q7. I think you misspelled squalene. Am I reading this correctly?
A7. 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.
