Skincare Review: SVR Laboratoire Ampoule Hydra, Ampoule Anti-Ox, and Ampoule Lift

At my age, hydration, plumping, and radiance are important. That’s why I enjoyed trying out these new ampoules from SVR Laboratoire. As someone with oily and aging skin, I enjoyed their texture. For an ampoule, they all felt lightweight and gentle on the skin. I also liked how they all felt nourishing.

The Ampoule Hydra uses vitamin b3 and a combination of 3 hyaluronic acids to soothe, strengthen, and plump skin.

It has a gel texture but it feels thicker than most hyaluronic acid serums. I didn’t mind, though, as it dries matte quickly. It feels hydrating and plumping on the skin. I have been using this every day and I can’t get enough. My skin just loves its hyaluronic acid formulation.

For radiant and toned skin, the Ampoule Anti-Ox uses 20% optimized vitamin c.

It has a watery and runny texture but applies a bit oily on the skin. It also sits on top of the skin so I prefer a more oily-skin friendly vitamin c to be used in the morning. Those with dry skin might enjoy this better.

A new favorite, the Ampoule Lift promises to improve texture, diminish signs of wrinkles, and leave the skin smooth and even using retinol.

This has helped with my fine lines and it doesn’t sting at all. Its thin and milky consistency goes well with my skin. It applies thinly and feels light on the skin. Compared to the retinol products I have in my stash, this has the thinnest and lightest consistency. After a couple of months of use, this left my skin plump and smooth.

Brand Overview: Somme Institute

Using Molecular Dispersion Technology 5, which allows full vitamin absorption by the skin, Somme Institute products promise to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, repair sun damage, even out discoloration and brown spots, treat moderate to severe acne as well as rosacea, improve the skin’s tone, texture, and clarity.

The Nourishing Cleanser ($45) has a jelly texture that feels like milk on the skin. It’s not drying or stripping but my skin felt cleansed and soft afterward. It didn’t leave any residue. It’s a good cleanser in the mornings but, personally, as someone who prefers a foaming cleanser, the price is a bit too steep.

The Transport Pads ($65) are exfoliating pads containing panthenol and vitamins A, C, E, B3 and B5 to buff and polish the skin, remove dead skin cells, excess oil and debris, soften lines and wrinkles, and purge pores of impurities. Right after, I used the pads which felt a little stingy at first, it really made my skin toned and clean.

This is honestly one of my faves in this bunch. The Serum ($92) aims to brighten and improve the skin with stabilized vitamin c at 15%. It is lightweight and has a gel texture that sinks in quickly onto the skin. Aside from that, I saw instant brightening after first use. It leaves my skin looking glowing and radiant.

The A-Bomb Moisturizer ($79) works to replenish moisture and correct signs of aging and sun damage with panthenol and vitamins c, e, and a. This #moisturizer has a creamy texture and a thick consistency but I wake up with soft and silky skin afterward. I reach for this whenever my skin is feeling dull and dry.

Another favorite is the Skin Reset Restructuring Cream ($95), which is formulated to reverse facial skin damage, restore elasticity using glycerin, mango seed butter, and soybean protein. This also has a creamy texture and a thick consistency. However, this leaves my skin soft, plump, and bright. It also doesn’t dehydrate my skin.

If there’s one thing I can brag about these products, they would be how they really toned, softened, and evened my skin.
