About the product

What Is It:

Formulated with 80% propolis extract, this highly concentrated ampoule is your all-around anti-aging, anti-irritation solution. Propolis is known for its antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s great for acne-prone and sensitive skin. It’s also a great antioxidant, which means it fights the free radicals formed from UV rays, pollution, even stress that contribute to a decrease in collagen, wrinkles, and sagging.

Woah! So little needed to make such a big difference. I absolutely am in love with this product. It glides on your skin with ease and within a couple days I saw a difference in more radiance and brightness in my skin. I have dehydrated skin that’s maturing. This is a great base under your moisturizer day and/or night.


This is a great introductory ampule. A little really does go a long way and all you need is 2-3 drops. The benefits and the price alone make this a go to product for sure.


This keeps my skin SO calm and clear. It layers really well under other products and always leaves my skin feeling hydrated and renewed. I’m very sensitive and acne prone, this has been an absolute game changer. I’m going stock up!


an excellent product if you have acne or your skin get irritated easily, it makes your skin hydrated,it feels refreshing and calms it , and even if you have sunburn, add this product to your skin care routine it makes a difference. I 100% recommend this product.


Great product and great value! This concentrated serum absorbs quickly leaving the skin feeling lightly hydrated and comfortable. After applying this product the skin perfectly prepped for your moisturizer without adding heaviness to the skin.


I've been using this instead of the vitamin c serum I have and there is such a noticeable difference in my skin! Abolutely love this product! If you don't have it, get it!


Who wouldn't love this ampule! It has so many benefits for the skin and provides protection. A must!


This ampoule is amazing! i just received this in the mail, and i couldn't wait to use it! I suffer from severe dehydrated skin! No matter what I do, I am always dry! Products seems to just get super absorbed quickly. I did my usual skin care routine, wash, and tone, in place of a serum I used this ampoule. This ampoule immediately plumped up my skin and my skin looked so hydrated! it didn't feel heavy at all. I recommend this ampoule to anyone who is dehydrated or want more moisture added!


Great ampoule that absorbs very well. It adds a nice light layer of moisture and I've found that when I use it on any active breakouts, it helps to minimize any irritation/redness. Not sticky at all if I use sparingly. My only complaint would be the bottle, since I can't get all of the product out and it leaves quite a bit in there since I only use a few drops at a time.
