For someone who loves innovative beauty tech, RÉDUIT BOOST would be an excellent gift.

Swiss precision beauty brand, RÉDUIT, recently launched BOOST; the world’s first bespoke skincare device that works in tandem with the user's existing skincare routine. 

According to RÉDUIT, "featuring an entirely new beauty technology, BOOST and its accompanying app, customises the user's favourite skincare products, ensuring their skin receives the actives it needs most and provides more absorption than fingers alone, to give better results."


The device's app uses information provided by the user like - their skin type, gender, age and environment etc. and then scans their skincare products to ensure all the important actives are pushed deep into the skin where they are needed most. For e.g.  antioxidants need to be at the deepest layers of the epidermis to function while brightening and hydrating agents belong in the middle layers and UV protection agents should be at the surface. 

BOOST is designed to fit perfectly into the palm of the hand, and with a comfortable silicone touch and feel the device glides effortlessly over the skin delivering alternating vibrations for a relaxing, facial massage vibration. 

It is available in four lovely colours and can easily be taken on the go so that one need not ever leave their skincare routine behind. A fab gift for someone who loves their skincare routine.
