Do you closely watch your skin condition every day? I do and it isn’t just because I am obsessed with my skin, but because my skin is super sensitive to temperature, humidity and even air pollution. Climate and seasonal changes can also make things worse! Therefore, I use tons of product to tackle my skin need—toners, serums, moisturizers…you named it, I’ve got it.
But sometimes (if not always), I am hesitated on picking the products to use as they share similar functions.
However, imew boosters are such lifesaver for me! I can pick the daily essential that suit my skin type, and add the booster(s) for targeting different skin needs.
Mix & Match:
Essential Range + Boosters to target skin needs
As simple as that, you could create your own and new formula.
The imew range is:
- Dermatologically tested,
- Vegan friendly, and
- Not tested on animals
It is also planet- friendly as all components of the packaging are made with 30% Post-Consumer Resin (PCR) Plastic, and the paper box is made from FSC-certified paper.
Best ingredient combos you should try

Now let’s take a look at how imew bosster targets your specific skin problem!
01 Hyaluronic Acid Booster
Does your skin need some hydration boost? Plump it up with the #01 Hyaluronic Acid Booster. It helps revive dry and tired skin with 2% of hyaluronic complex. This is actually my daily staple after applying the essential range (I use the Aqua Range by the way).
I have encountered some hyaluronic serums that are in thick gel texture, which cause pilling when I follow with my skincare routine. This booster is nothing like that, it’s water-light and hydrating. The 01 Booster scores the highest for hydration level among the 4 boosters.
My acne-prone combination skin is very happy with it, with no concerns of pore-clogging.
02 Niacinamide Booster
After a long weekend full of festivities, it’s normal that your skin feel dull, tired, dry, and lifeless. And this is when I add the #02 Niacinamide Booster. With 10% Niacinamide, it can brighten skin tone as well as to regulate oil, and strengthen lipid barrier.
The consistency is a bit more viscous than the hyaluronic acid, but it also absorbs well without leaving any residual and sticky feeling.
Niacinamide can also minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. If your skin has an “orange peel” textured, add this to your daily skincare regimen!
03 Bakuchiol Booster
Bakuchiol is plant-derived and seen as a gentler alternative for retinol. It is suggested by studies that Bakuchiol may be functionally comparable to retinol with less irritating effects.
The #03 Bakuchiol Booster contains 0.5% Bakuchiol, so it’s a great starter if you are a beginner using retinoid, or if you are looking for a plant-derived or vegan option. The booster helps improve firmness and fine lines, and well as help fight signs of aging.
It feels richer than the other boosters from imew, and I like to use it at night to provide intensive support for my skin and repair itself.
04 Centella Asiatica Booster
As mentioned at the beginning, my skin is quite sensitive to environmental stressors such as sun radiation, air pollution, tobacco smoke etc. Centella Asiatica is known for its properties of anti-inflammatory, reducing redness and soothing sensitive and acne-prone skin.
You can tell how this booster is my must-have item. It helps to calm down my skin after a long day of work and give a healthy glow in the next morning. I am very happy with how my skin feels with it.
Create your own formula with imew boosters and give your skincare routine a perfect add-on.
