Ampoules are also one of the latest additions to join Vichy’s award-winning Liftactiv Specialist range. Designed to be used over a 10 or 30-day period, Liftactiv Specialist Peptide-C Ampoules are Vichy's first glass ampoule leading the way in expert-ageing, and loaded with dermatological actives of natural originamount of serum, morning and evening. Each ampoule is also made from amber glass to protect the active ingredients inside from UV light, oxygen and contamination.
But what ingredients are normally used in an ampoule and what benefits can you expect on your skin? Vichy uses a minimalist yet powerful formula that draws on Mineralizing Water and 10% pure vitamin C. This formula helps to stimulate cell renewal and refine the appearance of the skin’s surface, smoothing the look of lines and wrinkles.
The formula is enriched with Bio-peptides and multi-molecular hyaluronic acid, andhelps replump, rehydrate and smooth the appearance of the skin. Such a potent formula should leave the skin looking and feeling comforted and soft.
And the results speak for themselves. A clinical study, research found that the Liftactiv Specialist Peptide-C ampoules showed reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, and forehead wrinkle .
How to use ampoules
Each ampoule contains two uses for the morning and evening. Gently tap the head to make sure all of the formula goes into the care, and then use a tissue to break the ampoule with two hands. Next twist the head of the plastic applicator to break it and set aside. Insert the applicator onto the top of the ampoule. Point the ampoule downwards and shake gently, before pressing the size bubbles and dispense half of the ampoule into the palm of your hand for one application. Apply across the whole face and neck, and then close the applicator to preserve the formula. Let it penetrate the skin for 30 seconds before applying your usual moisturiser and SPF.
