What is Ampoule?

This is my second time reviewing “Ampoule” product. So, what is “Ampoule”? Is it similar to serum? Ampoule is considered to be the more concentrated version of serum. Often, they contain a higher number of active ingredients and are used for a finite amount of time. In short, ampoule is more potent than serum.

My verdicts

Alright, I must admit that both products are very impressive in terms of result. At the beginning, I didn’t even fancy the smell coming from the ampoule and mask. Perhaps it’s too “ginseng-gy“. Although the smell stop bothering me when I first saw my skin condition improvement.

When I first use the mask, my skin were dry and flaking while my T-zone was superb oily. I find that the mask sheet is different from the usual one that you can get from store. It’s thin but it hold the essence very well. It doesn’t even dried up after the 30 minutes time up. There are also good amount of essence leftover that I can use for my neck area.

My skin feel very hydrated and healthy. After 2 weeks of using the ampoule and occasionally using the sheet masks, my skin is glowing! I no longer have excessive oil production and even my previous humongous pores look small. I didn’t experiences any breakout nor allergic reactions. You can check below how glowing (and super improve) my current skin.

Straight from my camera with no filter. Yes, there are still redness and occasional small hormonal acne but it has been great so far.

I didn’t even wear any foundation nowadays. My go to make up routine shorten to translucent powder to ensure everything stay matte throughout the day without the need of re-application. My pores does not appeared humongous (although there are still huge) but I’m glad it has shrink.

Will I re-purchase it? YES! Definitely. Although I have been only using this product for a month but I can clearly see the improvement on my skin. I will definitely recommended this SHO products to all my approaching the big 30’s sisters. If you are interested, you can check out the products below. They also have other products targeting different skincare problem.
