seaNtree's Hyaluron Ampoule 100: A Clean Dose of Hydration

I live within walking distance to 3 asian beauty stores and how I manage to not throw all my money at them is a wonder. A few weeks back, C'est La Peau was having a 30% off sale and I picked up some masks and a bottle of seaNTree's Hyaluron Ampoule 100.

It's a little hard shopping at AB stores without preexisting knowledge of what you want because very little is translated to English or French. When I walked in, I knew I wanted something that would soothe my extremely dry skin since I had been dabbling with some new products which were taking a toll on my moisture barrier.

 I decided on this bottle because of it's simple list of ingredients... water, butylene glycol, sodium hyaluronate and phenoxyethanol. What is sodium hyaluronate? It's the salt of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies with 50% of it found in our skin. Babies are full of this ooey-gooey stuff, keeping them nice and plump but as we age, we lose our retention of HA which leads to rough skin, dryness, wrinkles, etc...

What's the advantage of one over the other? The sodium hyaluronate molecule is smaller in size so it can penetrate deeper into your skin. Sodium hyaluronate and hyaluronic acid both can hold 1000 times their weight in water and they do so by pulling moisture from their environment and bringing it to your skin for it to be absorbed naturally. However, take attention to the climate you live in when using products with these ingredients because if you're in a dry climate, the molecules will reach into your skin for moisture and bring it to the top which can lead to dehydrated skin in the long run.

I had to tweak the way I apply this to my face since my environment includes cold weather, strong winds and heating systems. I start by cleansing my face and applying toner, then I spritz my face with a facial mist. My favourite one so far is The Face Shop's Chia Seed Calming Mist (it caresses you with a soothing mist, seriously in love!) but I've also tried it with Pixi Glow Mist and Clinique's Moisture Surge Spray with nice results.

While my face is still dewy with the mist I apply a dropper worth of the Hyaluron Ampoule onto my fingers and pat the product into my face. I wait for it to dry and then I spritz my face again and apply the Hyaluron Ampoule into my face again.

I repeat these steps as many times as I think I need to, usually about 3. At night, I apply a moisturizing lotion and lock everything in with a dab of vaseline. I wake up in the morning with soft, hydrated and bouncy skin.

As much as it's been saving my dry skin, it has a concentrate of 750ppm of sodium hyaluronate and I've seen other products on the market with a much higher amount (like this one at 4000ppm). I can't claim anything on those other products until I try them but I'm very curious in trying them out once this bottle is done.
