Oloa Fuco Antioxidant Ampoule Review
This is a sponsored post with affiliate links. Product provided by Be Mused Korea.
For a little over a month, I’ve been getting to know Oloa - an eco-luxe skincare brand that’s based on rigorous biotech research. Oloa stands for On Life, Of All. I already reviewed the cream here, so let’s talk about Oloa Fuco Antioxidant Ampoule.
The ampoule, sold on Be Mused Korea (use my code LUCY15 for a discount), promises to revive dull skin, brighten, and help elastin and collagen production.
The Fuco in the product name is for fucoxanthin - marine carotenoid with excellent antioxidant properties. It’s one of the ways microalgae survive the stressors of the sea, including sunlight. Fucoxanthin can help protect the skin from free radical damage and prevent premature aging and pigmentation.
The ampoule also features PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids) - Omega-3s that help support a healthy skin barrier and prevent water loss - as well as EGFs (external growth factors).
How to use
Apply after toner
Gently pat in
Follow with the rest of your routine
Just like with the Oloa’s Pufa cream, the ampoule’s color comes from the microalgae in the ingredients and not from added artificial colorants. It has a faint herbal / lavender scent that doesn’t linger and a somewhat slippery (but not sticky) texture. The dropped bottle is glass.
Another win from Oloa. I use this ampoule at night, after toner and before cream. It works just fine with moisturizers from other brands, but most of the time I pair it with Oloa cream.
When evaluating skincare results, it’s important to consider the starting point. My pigmentation was already mostly under control, but prevention is always on my mind (I’m very prone to freckles). I am noticing an overall brightening effect with a subtle glow that wasn’t there before.
Furthermore, the Oloa ampoule does a great job plumping up fine lines and wrinkles and hydrating without causing oiliness. The scent is also much milder than Oloa cream’s, making this suitable even for people who don’t enjoy strong product smells. I have quite a few ampoule / serum options on my counter, but I keep reaching for the Oloa Fuco one, which says a lot about how much I enjoy it.
I can’t wait to see what else Oloa has to offer and what they develop next. I can always count on Be Mused Korea to find the coolest new brands to try.
