The first thing these Dr. Dennis Gross Clinical Concentrate Boosters reminded me of was Mario (of Mario Bros., duh) eating a mushroom *cue sound* and getting boosted up, up, up--because, well, they kind of do the same thing for your skin. (It might be a far-fetched comparison, but it's definitely true.)
Knowing that people's skin's chemistry is constantly changing (due to factors like stress, weather, etc.), Dr. Dennis Gross formulated a trio of anhydrous (water-free) boosters that allow you to customize your skincare routine by targeting specific zones or mixing them in with your other skincare products. Basically, you can apply the Clinical Concentrates directly to your face, or you can mix a few drops into your serum or foundation to--as the name implies--"boost" them up.
But finding which one(s) is/are best for you is key--and while that may sound complicated, let me assure you that I've been experimenting with my own custom batch for the past week, and it's hands down been the easiest, most rewarding step in my skincare regimen. It's the little things, you guys.
