A.H.C probably isn’t a company you have come across yet, I only started using their products about a year ago and so far I love the value and quality of them!
About the brand: is a korean brand that provides beauty products that are specialised for skin clinics, dermatological hospitals etc.
This is a relatively new product that I have recently purchased. After loving their “Real premium eye cream for face’ I was eager to try their ampoules.
Claim: This is the 2nd update to the A.H.C Eye cream for face line. Although this isn't the most recent update to the eye cream,as it is on its 4th update. The product claims to prevent/improve eye sagging, remove dark circles, puffiness, fine lines and improve skin elasticity.
Skin Type: All Skin types
Texture: It has an incredibly rich, smooth and creamy texture which seems to melt once it touches your skin. Although rich, it
doesn't leave you with spots, or an uncomfortable heavy
Effectiveness: Personally, this is probably my favourite eye cream to date, it is hydrating, lifting and after 2 weeks I saw some improvements in the lines under my eyes. As for reducing dark under-eyes, I personally don't have dark under-eyes so, I cannot vouch the effectiveness
of the product on them.
Overall: I love this product, for its affordable price, it has proven to be very effective and was the first product that really made me love the A.H.C brand. Both my mum and I have both seen really good
results and love the feel of the product. Would definitely recommend this product for those who want a quality product for an affordable price, HKD$195 for 2.
You can use this product on your neck and smile lines as well!
Claim: "A moistuizing ampoule containing hyaluronic acid that helps skin retain water and stay moisturized"
Texture: The texture in comparison to the collagen ampoule is a lot more water like, which is quickly absorbed into the skin. Because of its quick absorption sometimes I add another pump of the ampoule to make sure I have reached all areas of my face. The melts into all the little crevices in our skin with little encouragement, so there is no need to massage it into the skin.
Effectiveness: I found that during the autumn transition month, my skin starts to feel very tight and dry which calls for (4.5/5) me incorporating more hydrating and richer products. rating Although the product isn't very rich/thick I like to use it as a hydrating first step in my skincare routine. I like to use it together with a sleeping mask to maximise my skins hydration levels.
Overall: I really like the product, however, I wish that the product was a little more rich. However, overall the product offers immediate hydration to the skin and suppleness over a longer period of time.
Claim: This collagen ampoule comes as one part to the 5 ampoules available within the A.H.C range. "A lifting ampoule containing collagen that helps to firm dull and sagging skin".
Texture: The ampoule is a lot richer than the hyaluronic ampoule, you will definitely need more than one pump of this stuff to be able to cover your entire face. The ampoule is not overly sticky that usually come with product that have collagen in them. The texture is more gel like than watery.
Effectiveness: I use this product together with the hyaluronic ampoule after cleansing. I find that the collagen (5/5) ampoule when applied to your neck and face really rating helps with boosting brightness and plumpness.
After applying it the night before, I found that it
really improve the look of my foundation, instead of
looking a little uneven (because of my combination
skin), it applied smoothly and evenly.
Overall: Out of the two ampoules I have tried, I must admit that the collagen is my favourite. The fact that it isn't overly thick in texture, really helps in the absorption of the product into my skin. You see most significant results in the morning after you use it.
Mix this collagen ampoule into your everyday BB cream or foundation to help boost hydration whilst going about your day.
Claim: The capture collagen set is a month long treatment that focuses on the renewal of skin and hydration of the skin. The set comes with 4 (single use) peeling serums soaked in a large cotton bud as well as 30 x 5ml collagen serums.
How to use: The set requires you to use the peeling serum once a week and the collagen serums twice a day (half a bottle at a time).
Peel: The peel slowly helps remove the excess dead skin and the dirt that has accumulated on the skin over time.
Ampoule: Used to help nourish the new layer of skin and help it remain hydrated making it supple.
Effectiveness: Personally I was a little disappointed in this set. I wasn't prepared for the peeling serum, as someone (3.5) who almost always wears BB cream (with SPF), I found rating that the two days after using the peel the skin on my nose started to peel, which meant my BB cream clung to the peeling skin which was kind of annoying but, after about 3-4 days of peeling my skin did feel very soft. I repeated this over 2 weeks and was a little disappointed that one of the peel serums had completely dried out!
Following the directions of using half a bottle of ampoule every morning and night, I found that it was too much for my skin and the product didn't fully absorb into my skin. I always left the remaining
ampoule and used it on my neck or left it for another time.
After 2 weeks I found that there wasn't much change in my skin and the peeling gel didn't cause my skin to peel anymore...
TIP: I would recommend this product for those who have very dry skin or is lacking in moisture, especially in winter.
