The By Wishtrend Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule is one of the favourite products at OhMyGloe. If you have not been introduced to this wonder product yet - you are welcome ;)
There is a common misconception that bee propolis is honey, however it is actually the glue that bees use to build and hold their beehives together. In other words, propolis is a natural resin, or simply put, “bee glue”.
The Propolis ampoule is well known for its hydrating properties and ability to reduce redness and inflammation in the skin. Together with its antioxidant properties, it is also a good choice to help treat acne and scaring!
Let’s unpack everything you need to know about the Propolis Ampoule:
Texture and Qualities:
Alongside aiding in the hydration of your skin, propolis is also a wonderful source of antioxidants to help keep your skin looking and feeling youthful and healthy. Propolis, the main ingredient, nourishes and soothes the skin which will help diminish the look of blemishes and other skin concerns triggered by dehydration and irritation.
The texture of Propolis (whether dropped on your palms or directly onto your skin), may come across as rich, but it will immediately absorb into the skin without a trace, leaving your skin feeling hydrated, refreshed and plump.
Having an ampoule in your skincare routine that is hydrating and moisturising is always a good idea, but when it has additional skin benefits such as skin soothing and healing, it becomes a HOLY GRAIL! Let’s look at the breakdown of the ampoule’s ingredients:
- Propolis Extract - a great hydrant, antioxidant, naturally antibacterial and skin soothing ingredient.
- Houttuynia Cordata - powerful skin detoxing agent that is a smart addition to help treat acne as well as other skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
- Sodium Hyaluronate - a humectant to keep your skin hydrated.
- Zinc - a well-known ingredient to help keep your skin healthy.
All these ingredients work together to keep your skin hydrated and soothed whilst adding antibacterial properties. The ampoule is formulated to suit all different skin types, including sensitive skin, and will keep your skin hydrated for long periods of time.
How to Use:
The Propolis ampoule should be used at the step of essences or ampoules, therefore right after cleansing and prepping the skin with toner. As the ampoule does not have any sun sensitive ingredients it can be used day or night, and our suggestion would be to use it twice a day for best results! Allow it to fully absorb into your skin before following with another product. If dehydration is a key skincare concern for you, you might want to apply two layers of the serum to properly target the source of dehydration.
When applying the ampoule, massage it evenly over the skin until it is fully absorbed, but also remember to *pat, pat, pat* as it not only helps with absorption but it also reduces any possible stickiness.
The OMG Pro Tip:
Besides the usual function of a hydrating serum, this product goes even further.
If you would like to enhance the results of the Propolis Ampoule, skincare tools can be a great help! Whether it be a jade roller or any type of facial massager, gently rolling it over your skin after applying the ampoule can help with the absorption of the product into the skin and promote deeper penetration into the skin.
