These Ampoules come in a silver box on which the essential information such as the desired effect and the method of application have been listed. This product is available in two different models containing either 3 or 12 ampoules. As for the ampoules, they are made up of plastic not glass, so there’s no need to worry about dropping them accidentally. To open them, you will have to gently break the top section and they will easily open at the neckline.
A non-oily and non-greasy liquid formula. Keep an eye out for any leakage of the liquid through your hands when using it.
Snap open the head of the ampoule, pour half of it into the palm of your hand, and then wet the fingers of your other hand with the liquid and pat it gently onto your face. You can also apply the liquid around your eye area in case you’re suffering from any traces of fatigue or wrinkles.
Spread the remaining part of the liquid on the areas you find in need of more radiance and less traces of fatigue and wrinkles. In case you’re not applying the ampoule for a special occasion or if you don’t suffer from signs of aging on your face, we advise you to preserve the remaining part of the vial for the following use. You can do that by placing the head in the opposite direction to prevent any leakage, and then preserving it in an air-conditioned place away from the heat.
These ampoules have a faint and pleasant fragrance.
We tested these ampoules on young skin (26 years old) and on skin that suffers from wrinkles and fine lines (50 years old). What we noticed in terms of the young skin was that you needed around 10 minutes after applying the ampoule for the skin to absorb the serum in order to notice the difference; your skin will soon look radiant. The results will appear even better if you wait for around 15 minutes, you can then apply makeup without going overboard with foundation to hide imperfections or highlighter to illuminate your face.
When we applied makeup after the ampoule, we noticed that it sat in place for a longer period of time. At first, the makeup used to last for around 4 hours before starting to fade. However, applying it along with the ampoule held it down in place for 7 consecutive hours, knowing that we applied it for a night out while being exposed to hot weather and high humidity.
In terms of the skin older in age, keep in mind that you won’t achieve complete face lifting as the product name indicates, nor will the wrinkles instantly vanish. However, you will notice that the appearance of aging signs will diminish after a while of applying the ampoule when the serum spreads out through your skin. That will allow you to distribute your foundation easily, and your makeup will look less flaky and clumped up at the fine lines as it usually happens. Hence, you can count on these ampoules to prep your face for makeup application, especially before occasions as it will look brighter and fresh.
We would like to point out that whichever type of skin you have, whether young or old, the effect of these ampoules will wear out after 8 hours of application. It is important to keep that in mind since you will begin to notice the radiance fading and the signs of aging reappearing as intensely as they were prior to application.
