Review: PureHeal’s Propolis 90 Ampoule

I like the fact that Korean stores are much more generous – anyone who’s shopped in Korea will know what I’m talking about. That’s right, the giant bunches of samples they hurl at us could form a mountain- in Singapore, the closest you’ll get is an anthill. I received this product as a “sample” during Sephora’s Beauty Day out last year. If samples were all this size, I’d never have to spend money on skincare ever again hohoho.

I say…

I’m pretty surprised to find a relatively unheard-of product in Sephora, a place where you’d usually find heard-of brands (think: Dior, SK-II, Clarins, Bliss, etc)

  • It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper system. The quality of the dropper is better than Skin Inc’s (good lord that one gave me a cut the first time I tried to open it), but not as good as Belif’s Peat Miracle Revital Serum Concentrate.
  • It has a nice honey-minty smell, which is refreshing and soothing at the same time.
  • This product is essentially propolis (from honey and bees and all that buzz), kinda like concentrate serum of honey goodness.
  • The texture is similar to Belif’s Peat Miracle Revital Serum – a somewhat thick liquid that takes about 5-10 seconds longer than usual serums to absorb, but leaves not much residue (ie not greasy, not sticky).
  • My face seemed slightly healthier (more bounce to the skin) and also looked slightly more radiant – again, similar to the effects of Belif’s Peat Miracle Revital Serum. I guess Koreans of the same feather flock together, especially when it comes to beauty and skincare hurhurhur.
  • However, the real reason I love this because it helped me to lighten several scars (on my calf). I know it’s a weird spot to be testing this out on, but I’ve had pretty bad ingrowns long before I started my IPL sessions, and constant picking at the skin resulted in multiple scars on my legs which never really went away. But after applying this propolis ampoule, I found that the scars had lightened by quite a bit, and the skin texture had also improved. Yay!

I now know why Sephora chose to bring this brand in – you can get it at Sephora for a pretty affordable price (I think it was about 20-30+, but don’t take my word for it. Will head down to check it out soon!)
