Antioxidant Booster Drops
e.l.f.'s Antioxidant Booster Drops are a great concept at a great price. While it might not be the most impressive booster product available, it's still impressive for its price!
There's plenty to like Antioxidant Booster Drops, including its packaging, an opaque white bottle with a dropper dispenser which helps protect its antioxidants (which are very sensitive to light and air) so they remain stable throughout its lifetime.
This fragrance-free booster has a water-light texture that works well on its own or mixed into other skin care products (though don't mix this into sunscreen, as mixing dilutes sunscreen's effectiveness).
Ingredient-wise, this contains heavy hitters like niacinamide, stabilized vitamin C, and vitamin E, antioxidants which can help protect skin from environmental assault and other factors that can contribute to visible skin aging.
While they're great additions, Antioxidant Booster Drops would be more impressive with additional antioxidants, as well as skin-soothing, skin-replenishing, and skin-restoring ingredients. Still, we feel it's deserving of its rating considering its affordability and smart packaging.
- Lightweight fluid texture works well on its own or mixed into other skin care products.
- Contains antioxidants niacinamide, vitamin C, and vitamin E.
- Packaging protects beneficial ingredients from light and air.
- Nice mix of hydrating ingredients.
- Fragrance free.
- Formula would be better with a more robust mix of antioxidants.
This lightweight booster supercharges your beauty products with antioxidants for added protection. These concentrated drops give a nourishing Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Snow Mushroom Extract boost that's perfect to use alone or to add to any foundation, liquid, or cream.
e.l.f. (it stands for which stands for Eyes, Lips, Face) was founded by Scott Vincent Borba and Joseph Shamah. The story goes that one day Borba was shopping in a dollar store and noticed women dressed in designer clothing and sporting designer handbags loading up their baskets with inexpensive nail polish, eye pencils, and lip balm. He took note of the products being sold in such stores and quickly decided he could offer products of even higher quality at the same competitive price. His idea paid off, as e.l.f. has enjoyed continued success and increased distribution online and in retail stores.
For a line offering many products for just a dollar (OK, there are plenty that cost $3 and $5, too), there are a surprising number of hits in the mix (especially the makeup brushes). True, not everything is going to be as luxurious or innovative as some higher-end brands, but overall you're likely to be impressed with what they developed for so little money, and you may just find some beauty bargains!
