Is it time for an Ampoule?
Looking for an ampoule to boost your skin’s health? We’ve got you covered! But first, here’s a quick on what an ampoule is.
Now I’m sure we are all quite familiar with serums; the water or gel-based concentrate of active ingredients. They help to target our skin concerns and treat them to improve our skin’s health. Well, ampoules are serums multiplied by 2 or 4 or even 10 in terms of their active ingredient concentrations. You might have heard of them referred to as “supercharged serums” as well.
Generally, ampoules are able to work much faster due to the higher concentration of active ingredients. So, they’re ideal for ‘boosting’ the skin’s recovery or if you want slightly faster results.
The first of our top 4 picks is the:
Vita B3 Source by TIA’M
This “Dual Action Brightening Complex” ampoule is packed with a whopping 10% Niacinamide (vitamin B3) and 2% Arbutin, helps to minimise the appearance of dark spots and redness by actively reducing melanin production AND boosting cell metabolism.
Niacinamide also helps to smooth the skin’s texture, regulate oil production and strengthen the skin’s barrier.
Sensitivity, redness, hyperpigmentation…. This ampoule is suitable for ALL skin types, yes, including oily skin. The Vita B3 Source is extremely lightweight and fast absorbing so it can be used all year round as well.
Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule
“In love with this miracle ampoule!”
A lightweight, fast absorbing ampoule which soothes irritation and redness immediately… in fact it even delivers some hydration to the skin!
It contains 42% of Centella Asiatica extract which promotes the soothing and healing of sensitised skin. The Panthenol, allantoin and Madecassic acid also help to reduce inflammation, heal and strengthen irritated and sensitised skin.
This ampoule is great for all skin types especially for those with acne prone skin and/or those with irritated skin from external factors.
Propolis Light Ampoule
The Propolis Light Ampoule from COSRX is a viscous, yet fast absorbing ampoule containing 83.25% black bee propolis extract.
It is an intensive care ampoule which helps to heal the skin, reduce redness and to deliver nourishment to the deeper layers of your skin.
Propolis is an antimicrobial, making it effective for acne treatments and its healing, antiseptic and restorative properties also make it ideal for healing and strengthening sensitised skin.
This serum is great for all skin types, but for more oily skin, I would recommend using this in the colder drier months of the year. For drier skin types, this ampoule is a great way to prevent damage from external factors and to prevent dehydration!
Silk Collagen Glow Ampoule
Smoothing, plumping, and brightening. The perfect ampoule for those starting out with anti-aging and even for those who just want a little more nourishment.
Formulated with an infusion of 20% gold silkworm cocoons, honey extract, collagen and niacinamide, the Silk Collagen Glow Ampoule helps your skin to achieve a healthy, radiant glow without behind to heavy and harsh on the skin.
The niacinamide also helps to reduce dullness, and to smooth the skin. This luxurious ampoule is yet again suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin!
