Ampoules are a great addition to any skincare routine, particularly when you want to address a specific concern, whether it be oil control, hyperpigmentation, or dehydration. 111Skin has 5 different types of ampoules, each has a unique formula which targets a specific skincare concern.
I’ve tried the Y Theorem ampoules before, they are perfect for speeding up skin recovery after in-office procedures. Since my skin has been feeling a little dehydrated and inflamed lately, I thought I should try the Hydration Concentrate ampoules this time!
Each 111skin set contains 7x2ml ampoules which are meant for a week-long intensive program. The Hydration ampoules are formulated with hydrating, soothing and barrier-boosting ingredients to instantly reduce inflammation, hydrate and decrease trans-epidermal water loss. The texture is milky, 2ml is sometimes too much for one use, so I use half of the ampoule in the morning and half in the evening routine. Unlike Y-theorem ampoules these don’t have any unpleasant scent! I let the formula sink to the skin and then apply a light moisturizer on top of it, the Ubeauty hydrator is great. The ampoules are soothing and nourishing, and give an instant glow to the skin!
I read somewhere that “Ampoules should be treated like a boot camp for your skin”. Using an ampoule once in a while doesn’t do anything for my skin so I personally add an intense 7-day ampoule-therapy to my routine every 2 months or ahead of a big event.
Overall, If you are a fan of 111skin masks, you definitely are going to love these ampoules, I’m planning to buy a few more ampoule sets during the holidays sales, will keep you updated.
