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! 🙂
