SCINIC Honey All In One Ampoule Review
My combination skin (oily t-zone, dry-to-normal cheeks) dries out like crazy during the cold seasons. And while it makes my already dry areas even more dry and flaky, the oily zones compensate but getting even oilier! I take Fall and Winter hydration very seriously.
Honey extract - honey is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants as it’s meant to be the bees' sole nutrition source during bad weather. Raw, organic honey has extra antibacterial properties thanks to the naturally occurring forms of hydrogen peroxide.
Niacinamide - vitamin B3 that visibly tightens pores, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and evens out the skin tone.
Royal Jelly extract - royal jelly is the food that the queen bee consumes. It contains beneficial amino acids, sugars, lipids, vitamins and minerals. It can help heal and regenerate the skin.
Propolis extract - propolis is produced by bees from tree sap. It’s a strong antioxidant and emollient that helps balance troubled skin and speed up cellular regeneration.
Centella Asiatica extract - a well-known Korean beauty ingredient that helps reduce irritation and treat / prevent redness and breakouts.
And many other plant extracts for healthy, radiant skin. A full list of ingredients is included at the end of this review.
The 250ml jar (you read that right, it’s huge) contains honey-colored, translucent gel. The product is advertised as “all in one”, replacing several traditional Korean beauty steps.
How to use:
Apply to a clean face
However, I get the best results using it as a serum. So, Lucy’s modified how to use is:
Cleanse the face and use toner
Apply your favorite watery essence(s)
Apply SCINIC Honey All In One Ampoule
Seal in with emulsion and/or cream
Use sun protection in the mornings
In short - I like this ampoule. It moisturizes quite well. The spatula that comes in the box makes it tempting to apply a bit too much, which can cause stickiness. But if I apply only a thin layer, it gets absorbed quickly without a sticky feeling, making the SCINIC Honey All In One Ampoule perfectly suitable for daytime use. The size is beyond generous, especially for the price, and I use it on the neck, chest, and hands as well. It’s a fantastic all over treatment for any season, but especially during the cold weather. I also love the scent. This would be a great choice for pretty much all skin types.
