What is an ampoule and why do I need it?

If you follow skincare trends, ampoules might be showing up on your newsfeed. The big question: What in the world is it & why do I need it? We’re here to give you the scoop (and a deal if you read to the end!)

So...What Is An Ampoule?

Ampoules are a staple in European skincare routines, however the trend is newer to North America. Essentially we think of ampoules like super-charged serums. They are made with high concentration active ingredients that are designed to deliver results quickly & effectively. Ampoules help to provide intense care to the skin so you can immediately glow (check out our Vitamin C Ampoule for the ultimate glow factor)! One reason why ampoules are so effective is because of their glass vial packaging. Since you only crack open an ampoule once you are ready to use it, the active ingredients are not exposed to environmental stressors or oxidization ensuring they maintain their efficacy. That’s why we recommend that you use your ampoule within 2 days of cracking it open. 

How to Open an Ampoule

Now that you know what an ampoule is, you’re probably asking yourself if you REALLY need it. The nice thing about ampoules is that you don’t need to add them into your daily skincare routine. They are a treat for your skin so we recommend adding 2-3 ampoules a week! That means adding ampoules to your skincare routine doesn’t have to break the bank. Are you convinced yet?

Pro Tip: If you have a special event coming up, we would recommend using ½ an ampoule every morning and evening for 5 days leading up to the day of the event (e.g. photoshoot, wedding, Zoom socials etc.) and your skin will thank you!
