Since I had a lot of page views for this post, I've updated the details of the product in this post while my thoughts of it remain the same. Do note that the packaging for this ampoule has also been updated to a more sophisticated look.

What is Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 100 Ampoule?

It's an ampoule containing 100% of Centella Asiatica extract. Which means you get all the goodness of Cica with this ampoule. That's why it's so highly raved among beauty addicts as it's a single ingredient product. So you could expect all the benefits of Cica from this ampoule.

Key Ingredients

Centella Asiatica Extract

Centella Asiatica is also known as Cica is highly praised for its properties that's rich in antioxidants that help soothes inflammation. This makes it a really good ingredient to help combat acne. Just reading about Centella Asiatica made me obsessed about it and when I did some googling, the ingredient was kind of a hot trend at that time as quite a number of brands were introducing products with Cica as it's main ingredient. I had a pretty hard time deciding which product should I try first since I haven't tried this ingredient before. After reading that the Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 100 Ampoule offers 100% of Cica extract, I was sold.

My Thoughts on Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica 100 Ampoule

Sounds pretty amazing that this product offers nothing else but 100% Cica extract. That's probably why a lot of beauty bloggers have raved about this product. I myself saw and experienced the benefits of Cica after using this product. But after a while, this doesn't seem to work much on my skin anymore. Probably because I use a lot of acids in my skincare routine, which you who follow me would know the amount of skincare I use daily.

Chose to give this a try as it was on sale at @altheakorea. At first I wasn't that keen as I'm not familiar with the brand. But this product kept popping up my timeline, so it tempted me to read its reviews. Almost all of them rated this 5 stars. So it triggered me to do a bit of research on Centella Asiatica and guess what?.. a few minutes later, I was totally sold! Centella Asiatica a.k.a Cica a.k.a Tiger Grass is know to be rich in anti-oxidants and helps to soothe redness and inflamation. Which means its good to help recover acne. There are many more of its benefits but I got sold because of this. After looking at the ingredriants, this ampoule consist of 100% Centella Extract ONLY. No need to think more, I instantly made my purchase. It has been one month over since I've started to use this ampoule and I could visibly see my acne scars clearing up. I use this in my AM routine rotatingly and sometimes in my PM routine when I feel I want to. I feel like this ampoule is perfect for those with oily skin as it abosrbs quickly in the skin and its light too. It comes in quite a huge bottle so it makes it worth for the amount paid. My thoughts on this are the same for those who rated this 5 stars. Its a good product and I obviously see results even though it does take a while to have the acne scars cleared. Because of this, I've been obssesed with Cica products and been hunting down for more. Saw that Skin1004 actually does have a few other products based from Cica, so I'm aiming to give those a try too.

If compared to the new packaging and the old packaging which I using now, I visibly prefer the new packaging since it looks more sleek and expensive. LOL... But usage wise their old packaging is sufficient enough but the size of the ampoule is too much for me. Thank goodness they offer mini versions now.

It's very watery almost like water since its colourless. If you but both side by side you can hardly tell the difference. However it absorbs great into the skin without any sticky feeling.

Not much scent to it

It worked out well when I first tried it out. Surely helped with reducing my acne problems but however it became less effective over time and I could hardly finish the tub.

Overall Thoughts
I use this product once a day only now, normally in my morning skincare routine, 2 or 3 days a week. Depending on my skin and my mood. I feel like this product has become something light to my skin but it does help soothe inflammation. I tend to reach out for this when I wake up and feel my skin feeling uncomfortable with acne.

If you're a skincare junkie and into products with a high tendency of acids, I don't really recommend this. but if you're the type that doesn't apply much skincare but looking to boost and help your skin fight acne, you could try this out. This worked great for me when I started using it, but after a while, it just seemed to lose its effectiveness on me.

My Rate
Rate: 4/5
Repurchase: Probably Yes!
