How to use

Step 5 Moisturisers C5 Super Boost Moisturiser

How to use a moisturiser

Once or twice daily, apply a small amount to face and neck. For daytime, always finish with SPF 30+.

Here's a step-by-step of your morning & evening skincare application.
Step 1: Cleanser
Wet your face and apply a small amount with gentle, circular motions. Rinse well. To remove heavy makeup, repeat or use with a clean, wet washcloth.
Step 2: Toner
With your fingertips or a cotton pad, gently apply over the face and neck. Do not rinse.
Step 3 Exfoliants
Gently apply with your fingertips or a cotton pad over the face and neck, including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. Start slowly: Apply every other day and note your skin's response. Then use up to twice daily.
Step 4 Treatments
Dispense a pearl-sized amount to your hand and apply once or twice daily to the face, neck and eye area.
Step 5 Moisturisers
Use a day moisturiser as the last step in your morning skincare routine and apply liberally at least 15 minutes before stepping into sun exposure. As always, it's best to reapply every two hours once the skin has been exposed to direct sunlight. For a night moisturiser, apply a small amount once or twice daily to the face and neck.

Most asked

What types of vitamin C are used in C5 Super Boost Moisturiser?

C5 Super Boost Moisturiser is made with two highly stable types of vitamin C: 3-O ethyl ascorbic acid (3%) and ascorbyl glucoside (2%). The 3-O form is both water- and oil-soluble, while ascorbyl glucoside is water-soluble. Together, they deliver multi-level vitamin C benefits. The skin converts 3-O ethyl ascorbic acid and ascorbyl glucoside to L-ascorbic acid, the most research-backed form of vitamin C. L-ascorbic acid helps fight off free radicals and external stressors, lessening the ageing impact of both.

Why did we choose to use these two forms of vitamin C vs. L-ascorbic acid?

We chose these types of vitamin C because of their stability, efficacy, and global regulatory compliance which helps ensure we can offer these amazing products to Paula’s Choice customers around the world. They’re both highly stable and work on all skin types, including those who tend to be a bit sensitive to our other vitamin C products.

Is C5 Super Boost Moisturiser suitable for rosacea-prone or sensitive skin?

Yes, C5 Super Boost Moisturiser is suitable for rosacea-prone and sensitive skin, but we recommend starting slow and using it 2-3 times per week in case you experience any redness or sensitivity. Let skin adjust to the new product, then work your way up.

Is C5 Super Boost Moisturiser good for acne-prone skin?

Yes, C5 Super Boost Moisturiser is suitable for acne-prone skin, especially when used as part of a complete anti-acne skincare routine.

Can you use two products with vitamin C at the same time?

Yes, you can use two or more vitamin C formulas together. For example, you can use C5 Super Boost Moisturiser with other vitamin C skincare products. By combining vitamin C products, you get better free-radical protection and environmental defence, plus improvements to discolouration, wrinkles and loss of firmness. Try using them in the morning, always following with SPF.

Can you use this vitamin C cream under and around your eyes?

Yes, C5 Super Boost Moisturiser is safe to use under and around your eyes, but we recommend avoiding eyelids and along the lower lash line.

Can you use vitamin C with other active ingredients like retinol or peptides?

Research shows that vitamin C works even better with other active ingredients like niacinamide, retinol, peptides and AHA/BHA. Here are a few of our favourite combos:

Vitamin C + Retinol: Retinol (in the form of retinyl palmitate) and vitamin C (ascorbic acid) are naturally present in skin, where they work together to keep it healthy. Vitamin C and retinol can coexist and maintain their benefits in a single formula, or they may be formulated separately and layered.

Vitamin C + Peptides: Ascorbic acid plays well with almost all peptides, working to protect skin and help visibly repair damage. The only exception: copper peptides. These tend to oxidize ascorbic acid, making it less effective on skin. When using vitamin C and copper peptides in your routine, we recommend using one in the morning and the other at night to ensure maximum effectiveness.

Vitamin C + Niacinamide: Together, vitamin C and niacinamide form a powerhouse combo that addresses uneven tone, wrinkles, loss of firmness and dullness. All skin types will see radiant, smooth, more even, and younger-looking skin when pairing these two ingredients.

Vitamin C + AHA/BHA: The exfoliating action of AHA or BHA sheds build-up of dead skin cells to help vitamin C sink into skin better. Using AHA/BHA before vitamin C helps it be more effective.
