Hiii all! I’m back with another skincare review today– and it’s one of my favourite skincare brands of late! Cute Press has recently released 3 Booster Serums to serums to go perfectly with their sleeping masks.
Maybe you’ve not seen either product– and I hadn’t either before this year! Their skincare offerings are a relatively new expansion for them– most of us may know them for their popular loose powder, with many tourists stocking up on several containers-worth when they visit Thailand (lol)! 🤣
When they were stocked in Watsons and later on on Shopee I purchased their foundation cushion and loose powder. Highly recommend it as an affordable drugstore brand with a very nice finish! ✨
But I digress. My first encounter with their skincare was earlier this year, when they launched their sleeping masks and invited me to try them out for myself!
In all honesty, I didn’t expect to love them as much as I did! Believe me when I say the hype is 100% real! I went through 3 tubs of the stuff between me and my boyf, and purchased them as gifts for my friend to try too 😌 I don’t recommend anything I don’t love!
Here are their benefits:
Overall, my skin was very happy with the sleeping masks that were added to my nightly routine. When Cute Press approached me again to ask if I would like to try out their new Booster Serum, I agreed right away!
The booster serums are priced at $24.90, and the sleeping masks are priced at $23.90. They are available for purchase on Shopee and Lazada, and the sleeping masks are available for purchase at selected Watsons stores as well.
But I’ll let you in on a good deal I found 👀 because who doesn’t love a good discount? Cute Press have a Skin Rescue Duo deal available on Shopee where you can purchase a booster serum + sleeping mask in any combination you wish for a discounted price of $38 (U.P. $48.80).
But if both the booster serums and sleeping masks have similar targeted benefits, what’s so amazing about using both the booster serum and the sleeping mask together, you may ask?
Let me break it down for you.
Why use the Cute Press Booster Serum?
These booster serums have been formulated to boost the effects of the sleeping masks, as well as provide a more ‘customisable’ skincare routine that is now suitable for daytime use as well.
If you want a X2 booster effect, you can pair the booster serum and sleeping mask of the same series.
However, depending on your skin concerns or skin goals, you may want to mix and match different booster serums and sleeping masks to achieve targeted benefits.
Perhaps you want to purchase the 8hr Full Night Sleep Booster Serum for added hydration day & night + the Calming Cica Sleeping Mask to fight maskne and soothe troubled skin.
Or you may want to fight dull skin with the 1 Week Brightening Booster Serum + the 8hr Full Night Sleep Sleeping Mask! It’s entirely up to you.
Your journey to good skin starts now.
let's take a closer look, shall we?
This serum, combined with the sleeping mask, is intensely hydrating, yet lightweight. My skin felt very hydrated, supple, and firm in the morning.
Appearance-wise, I feel like the boost of hydration helped with smoothing out skin texture and improving radiance. This combination is a favourite with me for my dehydrated yet oily skin.
I use the Calming Cica series whenever I experience bad breakouts, and to help reduce the redness that I usually get in my complexion. I regularly deal with bad maskne + hormonal acne, and this combination helps with reducing redness & soothing my skin.
I like that it’s very gentle and 6-free, with no irritants. Sometimes, I combine this series with the Full Night Sleep range when my skin feels very itchy & dehydrated.
I tend to use the Brightening Booster Serum in the daytime for extra glow. When I first tried their sleeping masks previously, I actually really wanted something that could go under my makeup.
While their sleeping masks were non-sticky, they still aren’t designed to be used under your makeup directly. Applying foundation on top of it– even when dry– may cause piling of the foundation + the hydrogel-like mask formula.
Sure, I would wake up with hydrated, revitalised skin, but I would have to cleanse first before applying my makeup. I wanted a little boost of that little extra something something to keep my skin feeling fresh and hydrated throughout the day– and now I have it!
If you’ve made it all the way till the end of this very long review, congratulations! 🎉
