By Wishtrend Polyphenols in Propolis 15% Ampoule features Propolis Extract obtained from the Auvergene volcanic region in France. This extract contains two Polyphenols, Catechin, and Quercetin. They are good antioxidants, as well as effective ingredients for the nourishment of the skin.

30 ml / 1.01 fl oz of product came in an amber glass bottle with an eye dropper dispenser. The packaging felt very sturdy and even came in a box lined with corrugated cardboard to prevent breakage during shipment. There is a plastic piece around the bottle’s opening so the dropper is securely closed with a soft click.
How to use:
After cleansing, prep your skin with toner and apply an appropriate amount evenly to the face.
The light yellow ampoule has a very faint herbal scent, with a liquid-gel type of consistency. It spreads easily and leaves an immediate greasy finish but quickly absorbs into the skin.
One full dropper is how much I use all over my face. I typically use this in the mornings, post cleanser and toner, as it is light yet is able to sufficiently hydrate my skin. I’m able to apply a gel moisturizer and sun screen over it without any heaviness on my combo skin.
I’m currently recovering from facial eczema and this product has been crucial in the process. It provided the necessary and additional soothe and nourishment above my eczema cream. With its help, I managed to gradually keep my eczema under control. I’m currently using it to calm my redness and build up my skin barrier. Its calming property is not as powerful as an ampoule that’s specifically targeted at redness and irritation, but I find this propolis ampoule more nourishing.
At my present rate of usage, this bottle will last me a little more than a month. The cost is a little on the high side but the quality of this product is superb.
I highly recommend this to sensitive and dehydration prone skin. I also think all skin ages can benefit from it.
