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.

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.
