For Better Hydrated Skin — DocLab Face Ampoules

Ampoules has been quite a trend in the Korean skincare routine (don't we all admire their super smooth skin?!) for a while now. These highly concentrated, serum-like substances are basically a booster shot for your skin and they are meant to complement your existing skincare products. Just when you thought that your current skincare routine is such a hassle, be prepared because you’re about to get another step.

Claiming to be one of the best ampoules in Malaysia is the DocLab’s Hyaluronic Acid Face Ampoule that originates from South Korea. Made of natural ingredients, it is alcohol free and paraben free as well. Unlike collagen, the DocLab Hyaluronic Acid Ampoule can penetrate through the superficial layer of skin when applied. It then penetrates to the dermis, thus boosting the elasticity and hydration of the skin. The protective barrier on the skin locks in moisture and gives the skin a youthful appearance.

Each box of DocLab HA Face Ampoules comes with five little bottle of the ampoules that are stored in airtight glass containers. Designed to address various concerns such as repairing, hydrating, brightening, anti-aging — they sure are a handy pick-me-up in times of skin dryness, dullness, breakouts, irritation and inflammation. Essentially, you’ll want to use one whenever your skin is not looking at its best.

Skin moisture boost and deep hydration with Hyaluronic Acid
Restore skin suppleness and elasticity with Collagen 
Retexturize skin, smoothen fine lines and reduce wrinkles with Ginseng Extract 
Natural anti oxidant and skin protection with Vitamin E 
Powerful skin whitening and lightening with Arbutin 
Skin soothing and refining with Witch Hazel Extract and Aloe Vera Leaf Extract

Basically, ampoule is being applied after cleansing and toning your face followed by serum and moisturizer. In this case, you can actually skip the latter as DocLab's Face Ampoules are rich enough. On days when you think your skin is in need of some TLC, you can apply a mask after your ampoule to aid its absorption into the skin. And oh just a tip, it is best to exfoliate (in moderation) before using an ampoule to maximise its benefits as dead skin cells sitting on the surface of your skin can hinder absorption.

Ampoules are filled with highly active ingredients like pure vitamins, enzymes in various combinations, and most of the time do not contain preservatives or chemicals thus once the ampoules are opened, it can only last you for a day. It is recommended to use one bottle per day for day and night.

Pour an appropriate amount and distribute them all over the face and just gently massage it. The four areas to cover are the cheeks, the nasolabial folds to the ridge of your nose, the forehead and lastly your chin line.

I tend to have dry skin cause I usually spend long hours in air-conditioned environment. So I'm a big fan of any skincare products that contains Hyaluronic Acid as we all know its super ability to retain moisture; it’s considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. (Fun fact: one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water!) Anyways, this is actually my first time trying out ampoules so I was not quite sure what to expect.The packaging of the bottle was pretty simple and easy to open. The ampoule has a watery-like texture which is really light. I've found that a little goes a very long way, and it absorbs into my skin within minutes. Definitely a plus point to me as it does not leave any sticky and oily residue on my face. So after the first application, I can really feel the instant hydration and refreshing effect on my face. Of course, you can't see a vast difference by just merely 5 days. Thus it is advised to use the ampoules for 14 days continously for better result.

DocLab HA Face Ampoules is now selling at RM138 per box but fret not, just key in the promo code doclabbeauty to get a RM50 discount from the total bill. No harm giving it a try, it might turn out to be a pretty good investment for healthier and better skin! If you're interested to purchase, feel free to contact Miss Lim at 0192062386 (:
