Now, I’ve dabbled with Vitamin C serums before, but never a Vitamin C Ampoule before. Just the name ‘ampoule’ intrigued me since ampoules are super-charged, ultra-concentrated nourishing treatments (even moreso than serums). The beloved LJH Vita Propolis Ampoule comes to mind with over 60% bee propolis to boost skin’s glow.
Now a Vitamin C Ampoule sounds like instant radiance, especially given Vitamin C’s known brightening properties. Vitamin C, in the form of Ascorbic Acid is a powerful antioxidant proven to strengthen and brighten skin while helping to fade scars and discoloration. Wrap that all in up in a portable, easy-to-use finger mitt, and that sounds like a winner to me.
Unlike other exfoliating pads, the Wish Formula I’m Pro Vitamin C Ampoule Pad is totally soft and smooth. The comfortable cotton is super soft and cushiony against skin, and since it is drenched in the ampoule, it glides across the skin easily and without any physical irritation. While ‘juicy’ is not a particularly pleasing word when it comes to describing mitts or sheet masks, these pads are absolutely soaked with not only Vitamin C, but also nourishing and hydrating botanical extracts and oils.
With these pads, the right application method ensures maximum absorption of all the good antioxidants. First, gently sweep the pad all over, to get some coverage. Then, tap, pat, dab the ampoule into skin with a light pressing motion,
Usually with Vitamin C products, there is a tingly or stinging sensation, to which I usually think “it’s tingling, which must mean its working and actually exfoliating!” With these ampoule pads, my skin did not sting at all as I swiped, patted, and dabbed all over, and yet I still could tell that my skin was immediately soft and radiant. Like magic, my skin was clear and bright without the pain!
The best part of these individually wrapped pads is that they’re TSA-friendly and perfect for travel. Ripping one open on the road is like peeling a fresh, citrusy orange. I toss a couple whenever I’m traveling for on-the-go, pocket-sized radiance without any heavy bottles or droppers.
