[REVIEW] SecretKey Prestige Ampoule

Hi guys!
Miss my rant? - I bet you don't..haha XD

Since I don't have anything to do although I'm in my exam month, but since I just finished my Mandarin paper this morning, I felt I want to do a new post. Plus, the next paper will be on next week's Friday ( how long is that?)

Talking about the previous post, have you read it? Sorry if it kinds of freak you out. I was freaking out when I saw the pictures all is fine now, no worries. That happens on February when I took the treatment :D

You know how much I was like a skincare freak since the end of last year? I'm kind of strive for a better skin instead of hiding it under my make up. But as much as I want a clear skin, there's a limit to that. I can't erase enough my past acne scars - the hole-like one. 

Anyway, onto the review. This serum was bought in January or February - I don't remember because it was too long and I have finished it for sometime. 

Can't get enough with the gold pattern :D

See how runny it is?

My skincare feels empty without serum or ampoule because I much preferred them more than cream because most creams are too thick or too moisturising for my skin. That'll eventually breaks me out no matter how good or expensive the cream is.

So I saw this serum was selling cheap on so I bought it alongside the cream. To think that previously I thought these won't work unless I used the cream as well. It proved that I'm wrong because the cream don't work for me at all. That will be reviewed later.

Since the cream doesn't work for me, I just used this ampoule alone and omg, it really works on controlling my redness from my active pimples. Sometimes, not all active pimples are bumpy, they're just red for no reason. I have no picture to prove but I really do love the effects of this ampoule on me.

It is not sticky, it's very light and absorbs really fast. Just like a lot of snail essence, the texture is a bit gooey but not that much, it is almost unnoticeable. It is just to show that the ampoule is really from snail mucus extract.

This ampoule is dual functional product. It claims that it will give whitening and wrinkle improvement. Honestly said, from all my experience will snail products - none of them really gives a noticeable result in wrinkle improvements including this one. Not sure if my skin doesn't have much wrinkles to begin with, only the one under my eyes are severe because of sleep. The eye part is kinda tough. Not many products could improve dark circles or wrinkles under eyes.

Another function is whitening and this product really nailed it! I could see my skin is so much brighter the next morning because I notice that even my lighter bb or foundation doesn't look much different with my skin. It means that the colour blends well with me - so that's why I never said that I will throw away the cream that is lighter than my skin.

There're no breakouts or problems while I'm still using this. I'm completely satisfied with this ampoule. I would love to repurchase but my skincare collection is just too much and I just found a new HG recently which is better than this serum. I would love to re-purchase once more if I'm kind of broke out coz this is pretty affordable for a good results :)

Thank you for reading.

This sounds great. I like Serums&Ampoules too, because they show the most obvious results. I'm happy that it worked for you :)

Mizu said...

I know right! Because they usually came in a small bottle and expensive at that.

Xana said...

Loved the review! I've been wanting to try out this ampoule because the snail repairing cream actually works for me and I just got the gel formula for the summer. After reading your review I will definitely buy the ampoule for winter.

Thanks for the detailed review! Take care!

meishenmeweishenme said...

which one is your HG ? I am soo curious ^^

Hope your exams will have nice results ~~

Mizu said...

Oh, you've tried the Snail cream from SecretKey?Which one is it?

or maybe you're mistaken with Mizon? Because only Mizon that got the cream and gel version.

If you're referring to the Mizon brand, I don't recommend the ampoule version of it. Because I've tried it and it doesn't work for me as much as the cream and gel.

I did posted it on my fb but in case you wanna know, it's the Shills Mandelic Acid Skin Renew Essence. I did the review twice here ;

oh,you bought on9? how much? have u do review about laneige product? done follow you...terima kasih ^^ ada jual kat malaysia tak?

Mizu said...

Hi Ju,

Yes, I bought almost all of my cosmetics online. I never tried the Laneige skincare simply because I have an oily skin on my own. Plus, I have other concern as well.
For the meantime, only Laneige is available in malaysia. As far as I know, SecretKet is not yet available in Malaysia. tq

Wow this sounds nice especially
how it helps redness. I hope you share
your new HG serum when you can.
Thank you for reviewing. :)

Mizu said...

Sure! Though I ran out of my HG serum at the moment but I'll try to make a review for it soon. In case you want to know what the product is, it is the Shills Madelic Acid Skin Renew Essence :)

Bijin Blair said...

That is one luxurious packaging! Secret Key is a brand that I've seen a lot online. Have you tried any other products from them that you'd recommend?

Xana said...

The cream I'm using is by Scret Key and I already have the gel version that's called Secret key Snail+EGF Repairing gel cream. And i also bought a sunscreen from the same brand.
Since I've been liking the cream so much, I would really love to try the ampoule by Secret Key too.

Mizu said...

I see!Then you really like the cream than me. I tried the cream and it doesn't work for me besides breaks me out..T_T

Lucky you...

Mizu said...

From SecretKey? I tried the Treatment Essence of course :D

Mizu said...

hmm, as far I remembered, mine was pretty clear, you can even see it from the picture. probably, it was from a different batch so probably the consistency is different. anyhow, thanks for dropping by.
