Beauty: DocLab Hyaluronic Acid Premium Face Ampoule

*gasp*! Did I just open up a treasure chest? The glow on my face isn't even fake, it's because of this brand new ampoule that I've discovered recently and can't wait to share with you guys! Ampoules are a crucial part of my skincare routine now as it accelerates absorption of nutrients by the skin to give it that glowing effect every girl craves. What's more, DocLab is voted as the Korea's No. 1 Face Ampoule, all the more you should read this!

If there's anyone you should trust when it comes to skincare that gives glowing skin, it's the Koreans. There's something about the way their skin illuminates radiance, and not just in a greasy kinda way. DocLab Hyaluronic Acid Premium Face Ampoule, formulated in South Korea, is now available in Malaysia and it's one of the best ampoules that you can find! They are also certified by the Malaysia Ministry of Health. All ampoules are made with natural ingredients, are alcohol, paraben and silicone-free, plus are not tested on animals!

You might be asking, why choose HA instead of collagen, which is more known to boost your skin's youth? Actually, Hyaluronic Acid keeps collagen synthesis up and contributes to the anti-aging benefits of the skin. Unlike collagen, HA can penetrate the upper layer to the dermis of the skin, thus boosting elasticity, suppleness and hydration. The protective layer it leaves, locks in moisture and protects the skin from excessive chemicals to give your skin a more youthful appearance.

Before we go into detail, let's talk a bit about ampoules. Ampoules are typically airtight glass containers that are filled with concentrated, highly active ingredients. They usually contain botanical extracts, vitamins and enzymes in various combinations. The ingredients will not cause any side effects unless you are allergic to certain skincare products. Ampoules are designed to address every skin concern and deficiency - the most common ones are skin dullness, dryness, irritation, hyper-pigmentation and aging. Because they are stored in airtight packaging, no preservatives or chemicals are added which means that once opened, it is advised to finish the bottle of ampoule within a day to keep it fresh. Store all ampoules away from heat and sunlight! 

From what I understand, this is the new packaging for DocLab's Hyaluronic Acid Ampoules. The previous version were stored in a fully-enclosed glass vial that needs to be broken before you can get to the liquid inside. I personally find this version much safer and convenient to open as you won't risk breaking the glass. Each tiny vial is only about the size of my finger, but so saturated with goodness. In fact, the ampoule is so rich on its own that you do not even need to use cream or moisturiser after that! 

Some benefits and ingredients of using face ampoule:
- Boosts skin moisture and hydration with Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
- Restore skin suppleness and elasticity with collagen
- Retexturise and regulates skin, smoothen fine lines and reduce wrinkles with ginseng extract
- Provides natural antioxidant and skin protection with Vitamin E
- Powerful skin whitening and lightening with arbutin
- Skin soothing & refining with witch hazel extract and aloe vera leaf extract
- Makeup lasts longer
- Controls sebum and makes the face look less oily
- Tighten pores
- Repairs & strengthen weak skin tissue to make it look more radiant

To open, just twist the gold pointed cap slightly and pull it downwards. This will pop off the rubber seal inside. After that, you can just close the container with the rubber seal to store the ampoule. As you would've probably guessed, the ampoule itself is light & liquidy, colourless and odourless. For first-time treatment, it is recommended to use the ampoules continuously for 14 days in a row. Thereafter for maintenance, just apply 2 - 3 bottles a week. One bottle of ampoule should last you for a day, but I usually use one bottle for 2 days, both in the morning before doing my makeup and at night as part of my skincare routine. I usually just pour the liquid on my hands to warm it up a little before patting it evenly on my face.

As I only have tried out 5 bottles of the ampoules, I completed the treatment in less than the recommended timeline of 2 weeks. I find that even so, this was enough to refine my skin. I had pretty bad acne on my forehead prior to trying out the ampoules and that lead to many redness and scars. After using the ampoule, redness has significantly reduced and my skin definitely looks & feel smoother and brighter! You can see the difference in these unedited photos, especially on my forehead. Makeup stays on better due to the refined skin texture as well. I do find that it is not advisable to slap on so much of the ampoule in the daytime, it can leave your face feeling a little sticky. While I can't vouch for the anti-wrinkle part, I must say that I'm impressed how just one small bottle is enough for my whole skincare routine, definitely saves me more time!

What I love:
- Classy packaging, small and easy to bring for traveling
- Odourless and colourless, doesn't stimulate my sensitive skin
- Helps to refine the skin and reduce acne/ redness
- Smoother skin helps makeup to stay on better
- Saves time, as one bottle is sufficient for skincare routine

What I don't:
- Applying too much of the ampoule at once may cause the face to feel a little sticky
- Can be quite costly for a full 14-day treatment, as each bottle is so small
