It's been a while since I made a full Korean skincare review. So, today I'm going to give you my insights about this latest product I received, the Cosrx Propolis Light Ampoule. This ampoule has a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient as it is formulated with 83.25% black bee propolis.Love the fact that this ampoule has only 11 ingredients that are all EWG Green grade plus it doesn't contain any harmful ingredients and is hypoallergenic-tested so that even those who have sensitive skin can use it without any worries.
Packaging:This comes in a 30ml transparent plastic bottle. The dropper head design resembles a honey dipper. The bottle is lightweight and handy so you can easily store it on your luggage or bag whenever you travel.
Texture and Scent:The ampoule has a thick and sticky consistency. It doesn't have any notable scent.
What type of skin do I have?Acne prone, sensitive, and has a combination type of skin
ExperienceI honestly have mixed feelings about this ampoule. It is true that this ampoule is moisturizing. I always stay in an air-conditioned room so my face gets dry and this ampoule helps in keeping my skin look more hydrated.
It is great in drying out maskne and soothing the redness whenever I have an active breakout.
Although I did not have any adverse reaction with this ampoule, I would still advise to always do a patch test first. I prefer using this at night since it helps moisturize and makes my face look more supple the next day.
Surprisingly, it doesn't pill under makeup even if it has a viscous texture and is sticky upon application. I did not see any noticeable instant glow.
If you damage your skin barrier from over exfoliation then this would be a great skin-saver solution. I would definitely use this again on months that are colder.
Since the ampoule is a little bit sticky, I have to massage it all over my face for a full minute for it to be fully absorbed. I don't advise using this on hotter days as you can feel that somewhat greasy film upon application.
