Review: Mizon Peptide Ampoule Cream
I was searching for a new face cream and stumbled upon Mizon Peptide Ampoule Cream. I haven’t used a Mizon product in a while. The last one was their bb cream. I haven’t touched that bb cream in ages since it didn’t work for me. I was a little worried that this skin care product wouldn’t work for me (a little skeptical about the brand, haven’t had a good experience with it), but let’s see what happens! So the face cream contains Copper Tripeptide-1. The main reason why I picked it up. I was thinking about trying out some other products with this ingredient, but this one popped up first. Let’s give this one a go! The purpose of this face cream is to improve skin elasticity, protect the skin against premature aging, and the formation of wrinkles. That sounds nice. I hope it works. Here are my thoughts on this product!
My Thoughts on Mizon Peptide Ampoule Cream…
This product is an ampoule face cream. An ampoule is a type of product that contains a high concentration of an ingredient. I feel like ampoules, serums, essences are essentially the same thing with different names. Purely marketing, in my opinion. I haven’t noticed a difference in using any of them at all. They either have an active ingredient or a main ingredient. This one contains Copper Tripeptide-1 (20ppm, says so on the box). 20ppm is 0.002%, so that’s not a lot. That’s very little. I’m not even sure if that’s going to do anything for the skin. 🤔 I’ll give it a try anyways. Let’s get on with the review. 👇🏻
This cream comes in a jar. It’s not sealed. It would be nice if it was. The cream feels very soft, but it’s not silky smooth. The texture and consistency of the product is more in line with Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream (that’s if you’ve used it before). I’m not using the Eucerin face cream anymore. Don’t forget to check out my thoughts on it!! Mizon Peptide Ampoule Cream feels more lightweight on the skin, and it’s easier to blend. The cream is very easy to use. It absorbs very quickly into the skin and left my skin feeling moisturized. But not for long. Only upon application and possibly 1 hour later, but that’s about it. I didn’t feel like it was moisturizing enough being a cream. I really thought it would be more moisturizing. One of the other reasons why I purchased it. On the box, it says to reapply throughout the day for a better result. In my opinion, that’s not ideal at all. Who does this? lol. A single application in the morning and at night is more than enough. Any more than that is a waste of product and money. The product is only 1.69 fl. oz. (50 mL) too. That’s not a lot of product.
This is not a fragrance-free product. It smells like lavender (contains lavender oil). If you’re sensitive to lavender or essential oils, this may not be for you. I didn’t like the smell of the product. I’m not a huge fan of essential oils or fragrance in my skin care products. I prefer them to be free of fragrance. The smell of the product bothered me the first day using it. Once I opened the jar and noticed that it smelled like lavender, that was it. The smell was way too strong for my liking. But, I continued to use it anyways for a few days to see if it was effective or not. That didn’t last too long. I stopped using it on my face because the smell of the product made my eyes burn and teary. I had bloodshot eyes every time I used it. It must’ve been the lavender oil. I’m still using this product, but I’m just not using it on my face. I’m using the rest of it on my neck and chest area. It’s been nearly 2 weeks now using this product, and I haven’t noticed any changes. I’m truly not impressed by this cream. The quality isn’t up there. Maybe it’s not for me. hah. Another product that I won’t repurchase. I wouldn’t recommend it either. It’s a waste of money.
This is what the cream looks like. It’s a nice beige/tannish color. I actually liked the coloring of the product. 😊 The product comes in a jar. It’s not sealed. I purchased this cream from a reputable store, so that’s not a problem. The cream didn’t come like this (see photo). I’ve already started using the cream. 🙃
A new update when I finish the whole jar, but these are my thoughts on Mizon Peptide Ampoule Cream for now. Hope this was helpful and have an amazing day! 🙂
Update on Benton Fermentation Eye Cream & Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream & Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream
I decided to remove some more products from my life. 🙃 I mean, skin care routine. This time, they’re not face skin care products. They’re eye creams. They are Benton Fermentation Eye Cream, Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream, and Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream. I’ve talked about these eye creams before. It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned them. Here they are again and my updated thoughts on each one. Let’s begin with the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream!
Benton Fermentation Eye Cream:
One of the eye creams that I was madly in love with was the Benton Fermentation Eye Cream. I loved the texture and consistency of the eye cream. It’s thick and creamy. It moisturized my eye area (doesn’t dry it out). This was one of the eye creams that I couldn’t let go. The ingredients were nice too. It had Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bifida Ferment Lysate, Macadamia Seed Oil, Ceramide Np, Sodium Hyaluronate, Aloe Leaf Extract, Adenosin, Panthenol, and so much more. Seemed beneficial for the skin so I kept on using it. So what’s the purpose of this eye cream?? It’s supposed to help with wrinkles, intensive firming, and moisturize the skin around the eyes for a brighter and more youthful look. After going through several tubes of this eye cream, the only thing this eye cream did for me was moisturize my eye area. I haven’t noticed any results with wrinkles, intensive firming, brighter eyes, or a more youthful look. So it just leaves the eye area moisturized. The ingredients and texture of the product seems really good, but I just didn’t see any changes other than moisturizing. Also, even though I love the thickness and creaminess of the eye cream, it was a little difficult to spread the eye cream under the eye area. It doesn’t smooth out easily, which made application more difficult than it should be. That means more pulling and tugging at the under eyes. That’s a huge no for me. I stopped using this eye cream for those reasons. All it did was moisturize and it was too difficult to blend into the skin. Where were the results? lol. I’m over this eye cream. Moving on…
Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream:
Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream was one of those products that I kept using just because. It’s also affordable, so it was pretty easy to get hooked on it, lol. So the product claims to be an anti-aging eye cream that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. In turn, makes the eyes look younger. The ingredient list is very long, so here’s a quick snapshot of what’s in it: Centella Asiatica Extract, Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Shea Butter, Peptides, Madecassic Acid, Macadamia Seed Oil, Green Tea Extract. There’s more to it, but it’s just way too long. The ingredients look good. I’ve also gone through several tubes of this eye cream as well. My experience using this eye cream was OK. It didn’t irritate my eyes. It was soothing. But it didn’t help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as advertised. It also didn’t help make my eyes look more youthful either. What it did was moisturize my eyes (when first applied to the skin). The moisture from this eye cream didn’t last. It sunk into the skin and disappeared. I did like the fact that this eye cream absorbs very quickly. It just vanishes into the skin without any issues. Since the moisture is temporary, it did absolutely nothing. It’s a useless eye cream that I’m purging from my skin care routine. See ya! 👋🏻
Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream:
I purchased this eye cream on a whim. I didn’t think much about it. I was using the Snail Essence around that time too and thought this eye cream would do something for my eyes. Here are my thoughts on Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream! The purpose of this eye cream is to firm the skin, boost radiance, reduce dark under eye circles, treat dull and dehydrated skin, fine lines, and puffy under eyes. The eye cream contains Snail Secretion Filtrate, Sunflower Seed Oil, Niacinamide, Palmitic Acid, Arginine, Betaine, Allantoin, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Peptides, and so many more ingredients! My experience with this eye cream has been OK. Well, only when it comes to moisture. The eye cream is sticky and actually does moisturize the eye area. Must be the snail filtrate secretion! 🐌 But that’s all I noticed about this eye cream. It didn’t help firm my skin, boost radiance, or even reduce dark under eye circles. If it helped with my dark under eye circles, I would’ve noticed by now. I’m on my 3rd bottle. Will be moving on to my 4th (last) bottle soon! It didn’t help with fine lines and wrinkles either. No to the puffy eyes and dull skin. All it did was just moisturize my skin. That’s it. This eye cream is on the pricier side, so I won’t repurchase just for an eye cream that moisturizes. I need an eye cream that actually delivers. This didn’t deliver entirely. My face moisturizer does the same thing as this eye cream (moisturize) and is more affordable.
Which eye cream is more moisturizing? In my opinion…
- Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream
- Benton Fermentation Eye Cream
- Purito Centella Green Level Eye Cream
