The time has come to share my first thoughts on a product that was completely new to me only a few weeks ago. I’m talking about the Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Boosting Ampoule! This is supposed to be a hydrating product, and hydration is something my skin is in desperate need of.
As you might know; I’ve been searching for the perfect moisturizing cream for ages now. I’ve been trying cheap ones, expensive ones and everything in between without any luck. So recently (probably a couple months ago) I thought it was time for me to purchase more hydrating products aswell. After all, what’s the point in applying a good moisturizer if there isn’t any hydration in the skin to begin with? ANYWAY, that is why I ended up buying the Juju Lava Seawater Boosting Ampoule from Innisfree, along with the Supple Preparation Facial Toner from Klairs. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m going to have to start somewhere, right?
Let’s get to it ↓

I’ve actually used the Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Boosting Ampoule a few times now (yep, more than once, shame on me!) and I think I actually quite like it so far. The product is very thin and I love watery skin care products, cause I find that they absorb into my skin like a dream. And afterwards my face always looks and feels refreshed and healthy. What girl doesn’t want that?! When it comes to doing what it claims, which is to hydrate the skin, I’ll have to give this product another week or two, but so far I’m enjoying it 🙂
And remember; I always recommend taking a closer look at any new product before purchasing it, just in case you’re allergic or sensitve to one or more of the ingredients. Personally I always check before buying a new product, because I know my skin is of the extra vulnerable type as I do have dehydrated combination skin with acne prone areas. You can find the ingredients, what they are and what they do at CosDna.
As with any other product I put to the test, I’ll be back with a full review on the Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Boosting Ampoule in a couple of weeks, if not before. It really all depends on how good or bad my skin takes to said product. But I must say that I have a rather good feeling about this ampoule, and although I’m not sure how effective it is yet, I highly doubt that it will give me any trouble! Just how I like it.
So that’s it for my “first” impression on this ampoule! I Hope you found it helpful. And please let me know if you’ve tried it and in that case; what you think of it!
