Every skin care junkie knows that serums have the ability to boost a skin routine's power through the roof. All those skin-friendly ingredients in one bottle? Yes, please. But when it comes to potency, serums have tough competition. Introducing, ampoules.
Compared to serums, ampoules have more concentrated ingredients—hence making them more potent. Most of them even come with a dropper so you can't overapply! Also, they're generally packaged in smaller jars and bottles, and they are a bit more expensive than other products.
At this point, you might be questioning your entire relationship with your serums. But don't fret, ampoules aren't here to ruin that bond. Ampoules address very specific skin care concerns, and in Korea, they're mostly used as a two to three-week treatment course. Which means, they're only necessary while its targeted issue is ongoing.
Convinced yet? Well, you should be. You can never go wrong with a skin care boost! Start your ampoule collection ASAP with our favorites below:
