A little over a month ago, I went South to Singapore with Olay to preview a new product, that is now available in stores. When I clapped my eyes on the Olay Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence, I couldn’t help stifling a grin. Truly, there’s now no escaping the pre-essence or treatment essences phenomenon. Especially not when you have affordable options now!
What the Olay Miracle Boost is, is a product that you put on your skin after cleansing (and acid/exfoliating toner if you use it) and BEFORE other serums, essences or moisturiser. Hence the name – pre-essence. If you don’t use an acid toner, you’d apply this immediately after cleansing.
What it is supposed to do, is to boost (hence the name) surface cell renewal, and this increased cell metabolism helps your anti-aging serums and moisturisers work more efficiently. Aside from the boosting activity, it also boosts skin hydration, and that is something I hold dear to my heart. It does what many pre-serums, treatment essences or pre-essences promise to do… for a wallet friendly price! ;)
