I would buy this forever!!!


I began using this product about 3 years ago at night before moisturizing. I'm 65 and have areas on my chin and jaw areas that have acne-like issues along with other aging issues. This product has been wonderful. It's not harsh or drying but it gets the job done. I recently ordered from Dermalogica. The free gifts were delivered but no skin renewal booster. When I called, I was informed that it was no longer available. I'm extremely disappointed. No one informed of any alternate product.

Why did you discontinue my favorite product ever !



Great product but would not use every day


Does wonders for my skin but would recommend not using everyday. If you over use it dries out the skin and causes irritation. I have gone from an every day user to every other day or every third day. Also very small bottle for the price.



Have used this product for a Very Long time & it's great!


Skin Renewal Booster has been a staple in my skin care regimen for a long time. I use it after cleansing, but before moisturizing. I feel it exfoliates, then "feeds" my skin with what it needs and also helps alleviate the occasional blemish quicker.

I would buy this again


I have used this product for the last 2-3 weeks. I apply at night after my toner and before my moisturizer. My skin looks more even toned and brighter since using this product. I use the daily resurfacer regularly so I think the combination is working really well.


Smoothes, heals, use periodically


This booster heals papules and smoothes, brightens my skin without drying it out. I don't use it every day because it can make the skin a bit sensitized if over-used (and the container is small, Im afraid it wont last long if I use it everytime I cleanse). Very effective to clear up occasional breakouts and prevent recurring papules. Use underneath a moisturizer. I have normal skin type, fitzpatrick type 3, and am 24 yrs old female.

Unexpected treasure!


I got a tiny 10mL bottle of this free with my order earlier this year. I have to admit that it sat in my bathroom drawer for about six months before I gave it a go, and boy did I wish I had of tried it sooner. Quick summary, my skin is oily/combination so I get an oily t-zone, chin and nose but I still tend to get dry patches in my smile creases and on my forehead. I also have mild acne - now when I say 'mild' I mean that I don't get horrible cystic acne like some people, but I tend to have at least four decent sized zits on my face at any particular time, as well as some considerable congestion and black heads on and around my nose, chine and forehead. I had trialled multiple BP solutions which completely dried me out, as well as many Salicylic acid products (including Dermalogica's Medibac Clearing series) with nothing being of help. Finally when I tried this product, with once daily application, I found that my skin appeared fresher, more illuminated and that my zits and congestion was clearing! It is now a staple in my skincare routine (Skin Clearing wash w/ Clarisonic, Skin Renewal Booster, Active Moist) and absolutely swear by it.

I am in love!


I have been using this cleanser for about a month now and my skin has never looked/felt so great! I have always been self conscious about my larger pore and blackheads but since I have started using this product I have stopped wearing foundation and now just apply my bronzer/blush along with my eye makeup.

I absolutely love this product. makes skin look really smoove. i am using it at pm. But thinking to start using it in the am as well instead of clearing mattifier (as i feel that even with usage of hydration booster on top of it) it makes my skin drier and break out appear. My question is if i can mix renewal booster and hydration booster before applying mousterizer.

i use this once a week for skin and i love the way it makes my skin feel and i see a difference.

This product saved my face, and I have been using it for 7 years. I am beyond upset that it is no longer available. Would you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE reconsider this decision to discontinue the Skin Renewal Booster.

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We do not have plans on bringing back this formulation. We recommend using Biolumin-C Serum or Overnight Retinol Repair as alternatives to this booster. Thank you, The Education Team


Why would you discontinue such an amazing product?? Do you have a replacement coming up?


Hello, Thank you for your feedback. I apologize for your negative experience. You may like BioLumin-C Serum as a comparable item. Kind Regards, Bernadette


Can this be used after the Multivitamin Power Exfoliatint? Can it be used everyday?


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Renewal Booster can be used daily. Do not use on the same day as using Multivitamin Power Exfoliant. Kind Regards, Bernadette

I'm 19 and I have some acne scars that have been on my face for 4-5 months. They are disappearing but too slowly. I am looking for a product that specializes in clearing acne scars. If this the best product for this purpose? Or are there any other products better for clearing acne scars?


Hello Thao, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Textured acne scars cannot be reversed with topical products. Please see a Dermatologist for recommendations, such as laser treatments. If you have post inflammatory hyperpigmetation, you may like Power Bright. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can I use this in conjuction with the overnight retinol repair? My plan was to alternate them weekly using each 2-3 times per week. I LOVE this product but I also really want to give the retinol a Try! I just don't want to give this product up either!


Hello E, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. I do not recommend using Skin Renewal Booster and Overnight Retinol Repair together on a daily basis. However, the way you described may work. If you experience any sensitization, try less. Kind Regards, Bernadette

My Dermalogica skin specialist has told me that the skin renewal booster has been discontinued. This product has transformed my skin, and I am absolutely devastated to hear this. What product would you recommend to replace it? Thanks. w


Hi Wendy, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You may like Daily Resurfacer. It is a hydrating, leave on exfoliant, which contains alpha hydroxy acids. It is the most comparable product. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Can I use the skin renewal booster (and/or the extra firming booster) around my eyes--including under the brow bone? Thank you!


Dear Xtina, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Skin Renewal Booster should not be used around the eye area due to its exfoliating ingredients. However, Extra Firming Booster can be used around the under eye area to firm. Kind Regards, Bernadette

Is this the best product to reduce laugh lines? The lines around my mouth have gotten deeper and I would like to target that area. Thank you!


Hello Brooke, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. This product may help. However, Nightly Lip Treatment is best to target aging on the mouth area.

Has the formulation changed? I have been using the skin renewal booster for 17 years, and I absolutely love it. I credit it for my clear, smooth skin and recommend it to many friends. Recently, I have had a hard time finding it at salons, and now Ulta has stopped carrying it. I ordered it through Amazon, and the product is totally white and the bottle had a strange stickiness to it. In the past, the product has always been more of a translucent white versus a stark white color. Also, there was no mild tingling that I have experienced in the past. Thank you.


Dear Jenny, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Amazon is not an authorized vendor. For accounts that are not authorized retailers, we cannot guarantee the contents inside of the bottle even though the packaging may say Dermalogica. Here is a list for your reference:,default,pg.html That is why the texture looks and feels different. Kind Regards, The Dermalogica Team


When to use before and after Professional Treatments?: How long should one wait after a Diamond Tip Microdermabrasion treatment to use the Renewal Booster? Can this booster be safely used before/after a Bio Peel and how long before/after each peel? A series of BioPeel treatments have significantly improved my skin., How should this product be incorporated into a skin care regimen during the BioPeel series. I've already had four Bio Peels and my skin is brighter, healthier and small dark spots have been greatly diminished. I'm scheduled for another two BioPeels, so wondering how to use my booster during this time. I also use Intensive Moisture Balance 2x daily and Overnight Retinol Repair regularly, plus Vitamin C. I discontinue Overnight Retinol Repair 5 days prior to the Peel and resume use of Overnight Retinol Repair 7 days after the Bio Peel. However, If my BioPeels are scheduled 2 weeks apart, then I do not use the Overnight Retinol Repair during this time.


Hello, Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you are using Overnight Retinol Repair, and have frequent peels and diamond tip treatments, please do not use Skin Renewal Booster. It would be too much exfoliation on top of what you are already doing. Kind Regards, The Dermalogica Team
