DocLab Face Ampoule - The benefits of Hyaluronic Acid

Face Ampoules are now getting much more popular and more brands are coming in. Before this, ampoules were highly used in the makeup artist industry because of the instant and long-lasting effect it creates. 

Recently, I've been trying out a new set of face ampoules by DocLab which is voted as Korea's No 1 face ampoules! 


DocLab face ampoule apparently claims to boost skin moisture and provide deep hydration with their Hyaluronic Acid technology. ALSO, with Collagen and Ginseng Extract as their active ingredients, these ampoules are able to restore skin suppleness, elasticity, retextures skin and making your skin smooth as well as protect your skin from harmful chemicals and pollutants. 

Ampoules are known as small airtight products that are filled with concentrated high active ingredients, they usually come in sizes like 5ml/10ml but sold in boxes so you get maybe about 30ml-50ml depending how many ampoules are in a box. 


What are the benefits of using DocLab's Hyaluronic Acid Face Ampoules?
- Makeup last longer
- Skin is more hydrated
- Controls sebum, balance your skin PH (Hence oily/dry/combo/normal skin wouldn't be a problem)
- Repairs skin (anti-wrinkles & Hyper-pigmentation) 
- Skin is more radiant and supple. 



How to use the DocLab's Hyaluronic Acid Face Ampoules?
Day: Cleanse -> Tone -> Ampoule -> Moisturiser -> Sunblock -> Makeup 
Night: Cleanse -> Tone -> Ampoule -> Night Cream 
Treatment: Cleanse -> Tone -> Ampoule -> Mask -> Moisturiser



My thoughts on it: 
When I opened the box and took out the first ampoule, I was a little confused and unsure of how to open the ampoule. It was then I realised I had to slowly tilt the tip to one side and push it down. There is a rubber seal/quality seal inside which is sealed up air-tight so even though it was a little confused with the packaging I think it's a good one as it's packed nicely ensuring quality will be remained in there. Also, once you've opened it, you can't close it back, therefore you know it's a legit quality seal. 


This ampoule has a very light watery texture, in fact, it felt like water and I was very afraid of spilling it. Lesson learnt; pour it on my palm not the back of my hand. Took me a while to figure out how to apply it as it is so watery, so in the end, i placed it on my palm and dabbed it onto my face like how i would use any of my treatment essence (Ex: SKII, EL Micro Essence Lotion, Missha Treatment Lotion, etc...) With this, the product is pat directly onto my face and I would also ensure it's not placed onto only one spot or dripping everywhere. Unlike serum which usually has a thicker, much more concentrated texture, this is watery and you just need to get a hang of it. 

I love how it doesn't have a sticky feeling to it like certain sheet mask or serum. It's not heavy and doesn't irritate your skin. HA is known for deep hydration and most HA products are very sticky, so I was really surprised with this as well. 

I was worried at first, as I suffer from Rosecea and with the high heat during this month, my face has been flaring and acting up. I hesitated and wanted to push this till the redness has gone away but after two weeks I realised that I could give this a shot to see how it works on sensitive skin as well. How did it go? It did not flare up my skin but i wake up with a morning with no redness. Then again the minute the heat comes in, the redness starts again (but this can't be changed) 





Would I recommend it? 
Yes.

MONTHLY FAVOURITES - MAY 2016 | GWENBEAUTY

Another month has passed and here we are again for another monthly favourites. Some of the products you might have seen it on my snapchat/instagram throughout the months as well. 

So let's see what do we have... 


1. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette 
When UD just launched the smoky palette last year in August, I had to grab my hands on it, despite me having the palette 1 and 3. And I was lucky to be able to grab it the first week it was launched in Malaysia. #luckyMe
As usual, I always loved UD's eyeshadow because it's so creamy and pigmented.
2. Biotherm Life Plankton Essence 
I cannot love this enough and cannot believe how not many people know about this product. With the heat and crazy weather, my rosacea has been flaring up and this product is one of the very few that has not only calm my skin down but provided the moisture and protection I need. 
3. Biotherm Blanc Therapy CC Cream - anti redness
I was introduced to Biotherm this month, with the life plankton collection and the whole Blanc Therapy CC creams. What i love about this the most is that it contains SPF50 (yay protection!) Anyone who knows me will know how i see the importance of sunscreen. The anti-redness one comes in a green tint and you should know by now that green is the contrast for red. Hence why many anti-redness products have a green tint. 
4. Shuumera Skin Purifier Cleansing Oil 
Shuumera has always been famous for their cleansing oil and so far i've used the anti/oxi skin refining anti-dullness cleansing oil (green color) when Carol bought the travel size and I've loved it then. This time, we were given a free travel size for Skin Purifier (brown one) and it's amazing. I expected it to be the same as the anti-oxi but surprisingly it wasn't - this was much lighter in terms of texture and it wasn't as oily as the anti-oxi. 
 
5. B.Liv Submerge Me - Moisturizing Booster 
I cannot get enough of this moisturiser. I feel that it's so underrated and not many people know about it. May has been a very hot weather and my Rosacea has flared up, and whenever it does, my skin would become dry and this is the B.Liv submerge me is the only thing that doesn't agitate my skin, provides me that layer of moisturising protection. Apparently this has antioxidant and anti-aging. But we shall see. 
6. Mustela Hydrabebe Body Lotion 
Best Body Lotion ever. period. LOL This is like my holy grail body lotion. I look up to this so much that any other body lotion that I review will be now compared to this already. This shows how much I love this. 
7. Mustela PhysiObebe Cleansing Fluid 
To be honest I was a little skeptical in the beginning about this. But after using it, OMG. I cannot say enough about it. Wiping hands have never felt cleaner. LOL. Hand sanitiser that doesn't smell like alcohol? This is the one for you too! Asides that, I've used it as a makeup instant anti-bacterial clean right before i use it. 

8. Jill Stuart Treatment Hair Mist 
Weeks ago Carol brought me to a clearance sale in Pavilion and the one thing that caught my attention was the Jill Stuart corner. (OMG! How can you not fall in love with any of the Jill Stuart packagings? They make your dressing table feel so princess-sy). Asides the pretty packaging, this Hair Mist has also been the one item that I found myself grabbing often throughout the month. I've recently bleached my hair again in April, therefore my entire hair care routine has switched around and this is not just moisturising, it doesn't weight my damaged hair down, not greasy and my roots are not oily as well. On top of everything, the scent is just amazing.  
9. YSL Touche Eclat Foundation in shade B10 
If you follow me on snapchat you would have realised that i've been grabbing this foundation throughout the month. Well, good things are meant to be shared right? Some people say that the price is a little overrated but then the finishing is very different. I would say that the dupe for this and the closest is the Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation but then only difference is that this doesn't transfer as much as that, it gives a dewy finishing and doesn't not cake up. The only problem with the Bobbi Brown skin Foundation is that you need setting powder to set it in, the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation does not need that. 
10. Chloe Parfum -  Eau De Toilette 
I was never a fan of the rose scent. It has always reminded me of Lovely Lace and I didn't like the overwhelming scent of it. But, when I was given the sample of this, I fell in love with it. Funny how things work out isn't it? And if you know me, you would know that I have quite a number/collection of scents on my table which I would pick and use according to occasions and everything else. The Chloe Parfum is the one that I have been grabbing mostly the past few months especially seeing the boy.
