The Plant Base Ampoule Review – M Review 128
Among an extensive 10-step skincare routine, ampoule is sometimes forgotten. Reasons being either
1. You’ve never heard of ampoule. (WHAT?)
2. You think ampoule is the same as serum.
3. You have flawless skin.
I was number 2 for a long time before I came across The Plant Base’s three famous ampoule. An ampoule can often be confused as an essence or serum because of their similarities. Sometimes the words are used interchangeably! An ampoule has the highest concentration of a single antioxidant to singlehandedly boost the skin’s health.
See forehead wrinkles, smile lines, or crow’s feet forming? This anti-aging ampoule is formulated with key ingredient Hericium Erinaceum (Mushroom) Extract in place of water. At nearly a 77% concentration, the mushroom extract promotes collagen production and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Other ingredients include glycerin and sodium hyaluronate for locking moisture in the skin and Tremella Fuciformis to hold moisture and boost immunity in cells. It absorbs quickly into the skin and immediately nourishes the skin’s texture.
Simplicity in its highest form, this ampoule’s only ingredient is sodium hyaluronate! It’s suitable for dry skin types that need immediate intense moisture in a single droplet. With a pH level of only 6.15, it is gentle yet heals rough and dry, patchy skin. The ampoule is straight to the point without any hidden ingredients. After applying this ampoule, you might not even need to finish with a cream moisturizer, it's that moist, for lack of a better word.
If you’ve heard that washing your face with rice water is beneficial to the skin, this is that but in a ceramide ampoule. Formulated with rice protein, rice bran oil and rice water, this lightweight ampoule strengthens the skin barrier. Other ingredients niacinamide brightens the skin and ceramides help the skin retain moisture. Ceramides protect the top layer of the skin by strengthening the skin barrier and keeping harmful things from permeating the skin. Ceramides play a huge role in healing acne scars, smoothing skin texture, and improving dry skin conditions.
To sum it up, these ampoules are made to target specific skin concerns. I would recommend Time Stop Collagen Ampoule to someone struggling with wrinkle and fine lines, Hyaluronic Acid 100 for someone with dry damaged skin, and Quesera Ceramide to someone who has sensitive and combination skin, no major concern, but wants to preserve the skin and it’s natural barrier.
The Plant Base’s ampoules sold out extremely well not only because of its beautiful packaging, but because of its brand focus on using only plant-based ingredients without mineral oil, parabens, and artifical fragrance.
