SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule Review
Centella Asiatica also known as Cica, Gotu kola, spade leaf or Brahmi is a perennial herb that has been famous in culinary and medicinal domains. This ancient plant has now taken the skincare industry by storm owing to its innumerable benefits. Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on one such formulation that is surely going to amaze all of you. This post is about SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule Review.
The brand brings to you the purest and finest quality 100% Centella Asiatica extract from the pristine and untouched island of Madagascar. This Korean brand believes in the ideology that rich and good quality ingredients can be originated only from pure soil. Therefore whatever touches your skin should be pure, fresh and of supreme quality. After extensive research, the brand found its heart in Madagascar. While exploring and mingling with the natives they found out that Centella Asiatica has healing and protective properties. This herb is also known as the “Leaf of Life”.
Centella Asiatica possesses high concentrations of flavonoids,triterpenic steroids, amino acids and sugars. These compounds have a wide variety of skin benefits such as anti-ageing, moisturising and skin-soothing properties. The brand cultivates the highest quality Centella Asiatica at an average temp of 23-27°C at an altitude of 700 m. By following the GACP farming process the brand promises to bring to you the highest quality ingredients to pamper your skin. Their products are EWG Green Grade Certified.
SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule Packaging
Can we just take out two minutes to admire how gorgeous and luxe the packaging of this ampoule is? From the outer cardboard box that has a beautiful picture of the Madagascar island to the glass bottle housed inside it, everything about the packaging speaks of how pure and luxurious the formulation is. It is devoid of any fragrance which is an added benefit of this beauty. I would describe this ampoule as the “Golden Elixir” due to its beautiful colour. Now, do you all know what exactly are the benefits of Centella Asiatica? If not then I’ll be listing down all the miraculous benefits of this small yet power-packed antioxidant-rich plant.
SKIN1004 Madagascar Centella Ampoule Review
I’ve been using this 100% pure Centella Asiatica ampoule from the untouched island of Madagascar for one month. The ampoule has a watery/runny consistency and is transparent in colour. It claims to calm, heal, soothe and moisturize the skin. It tackles skin troubles like large pores, sebum production, dehydration and compromised skin barrier. This golden elixir provides a punch of hydration to my combination skin type. However, the way of application differs for each skin type.
For my combination skin type, I just apply a single layer of this ampoule and pat it for two seconds. If I try to add further layers of this ampoule, my skin becomes sticky and further layering of products makes it more sticky. While on the other hand, my mom has severely dry skin and she applies 3-4 layers of it and her skin gulps in all the hydration. It has become a saviour for her ageing skin and treats her dry patches and irritated skin. This ampoule sinks into the deeper layer of skin within few seconds leaving it soft and supple all day long.
It is an all-rounder product that replenishes, soothes, softens and rejuvenates my skin all at once.
I get frequent bouts of hormonal acne coupled with redness and this ampoule helps in calming them down. With regular usage, it does help in slightly controlling sebum production and accelerates the process of diminishing blemishes. There’s a reason why it’s called the “Leaf of Life”. On days when I do threading and bleaching, I apply refrigerated cotton soaked layers of this ampoule. It instantly soothes the redness, irritation and burning sensation.
People who are into chemical exfoliation will instantly fall in love with this ampoule. Due to chemical exfoliation, the skin tends to become dry and at times the skin barrier becomes weak. Fret not! this ampoule is going to be a saviour for such situations. The ph of this ampoule is slightly acidic to create a protective layer and match the skin ph level. After using it for one month my skin looks much healthier, soft and supple. The 100% pure Centella Asiatica ampoule is non-comedogenic and hypoallergic. Therefore its suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin. Overall I thoroughly love this pure, fresh and ethically sourced ampoule.
1)The colour of each ampoule might vary due to the surrounding environment. Factors such as climate, soil etc affect the growth of this herb. However, the quality and efficacy remain top-notch.
2)Patch test recommended.
Madagascar Centella Hyalu-Cica Brightening Toner, Hyalu-Cica Blue Serum, Hyalu Cica Sleeping Pack
These are the three samples I had received from the brand. I had used these one time samples after bleaching my face. The results were just amazing. I wished I had the opportunity to try out these full-sized products.
Hyalu-Cica Brightening Toner
It has a watery consistency and sinks into the skin within few seconds. The presence of cica helps in providing a punch of hydration to my red and irritated bleached skin.
Hyalu-Cica Blue Serum
It has a slightly thick gel-like consistency. The serum glides on the skin smoothly and takes about 30 seconds to get absorbed into the skin. It creates a protective layer on the skin. Not to forget further layering of the sleeping pack is still easy and does not cause any pilling.
Hyalu-Cica Sleeping Pack
Lastly, I ended my self-indulgent routine with this sleeping pack. It has a thick transparent gel consistency that locks in all the moisturization and hydration.
Now coming to the results of these samples. I just loved and loved the post effects after using these samples. You guys won’t believe my skin was glowing differently and it looked so healthy and smooth. I am attaching a photo for your reference so that you all can see the amazing results of these samples.
I hope to try out the full-sized products of these samples.
