Scinic Aqua All In One Ampoule

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Scinic’s Aqua All In One Ampoule. I bought this product because I loved the look of it. However, I had to google to find out what it’s supposed to do!

Alrighty, this product promises to revolutionise skin care because it can be used as… a toner, an essence, a serum, a moisturiser, and, apparently, even as a sleeping pack. All you need to do is apply the product to your face.

I’ve been using this product since November 2017 (the current routine is shower, ampoule, eye cream, day cream), so here’s what I think…

I’ve been applying a generous amount of product to my face and neck every day (mornings only) for over 3 months now, and the bottle is still more than half full. I think that’s impressive! However, this is the only thing that’s impressive…

… This product cannot replace a toner because it just doesn’t work. It’s not a serum because it’s nothing like a serum. It can’t be a moisturiser because it’s not hydrating. And it’s certainly not a sleeping pack because no matter how much product you apply, it’ll always dry down to the same dry and dull (yet slightly tacky) mess.

I wanted to love the product, but it’s not working for me. I can’t use it on its own or in conjuction with any of my regular moisturisers because it makes my skin feel dehydrated.

Having said that, this product gives me the chance to use (and hopefully finish) some of the richer (well, greasy) moisturisers that I own – because it manages to suck the oil right out of those greaseball face creams. So… I guess I could say that I did make this product work! ūüėČ

I wouldn’t repurchase Scinic’s Aqua All In One Ampoule. However, if you’re interested, it’s available as 250ml (I believe). I paid ¬£9.99 (TK Maxx).
