It's no secret that Koreans are really good in taking care of their skin. Making sure the skin healthy with a glow from within sometimes doesn't really take much work, but the many times we tend to overdo it. So, how to achieve a healthy glowing skin without overdoing it? The answer is sometimes as simple as a bottle of ampoule and treatment mask.

SHO is a Korean skincare brand that combines beauty treatment and science. Produced in the best cosmetics manufacturer in Korea under strict standard to ensure quality, SHO offers a range of fine ingredients skin care products which give modern working women a high-quality treatment at the comfort of their own home.

All of SHO products are free from harmful ingredients such as Triethanolamine, Benzophenone, Mineral oil, Sulfate, Paraben and Acrylamide. It is safe to be used by pregnant women too! There are 2 products from SHO - ampoule and ampoule mask, which are designed to work together to produce the best results for the skin.

SHO Wrinkle Lift Peptide Ampoule - 50ml (RM 189). Ampoules are considered to be more concentrated version of a serum, and it has 3X more effective and absorption compared to serum. Think of it as a booster shot that gives the additional "push" to your skin. Ampoule often contains a higher number of active ingredients, provides lasting effects, helps to restore balance to the skin, and non-sticky.

Peptide is one of the most effective ingredients for elasticity of the skin. When peptides form a long chain of amino acids, they become protein. When they are in a short chain of amino acids, they are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and "communicate" with our cells to let them know how to function.

SHO Wrinkle Lift Peptide Ampoule contains ingredients such as:

Marine Originated Collagen - Skin firming,enhancing skin barrier
Adenosin - Wrinkle improvement, enhancing skin elasticity
Portulaca Oleracea Extract - Soothing skin, antimicrobial
Elastin - Maintaining skin elasticity
Hyaluronic Acid - Smoothing skin texture, moisturizing

The ampoule is recommended for rough, flaky and again skin as it has benefits such as skin firming,enhancing skin elasticity and moisturising.

How TO:
1. Apply appropriate amount, tap to promote absorption.
2. Follow up with a moisturizer.
3. Or make it the last step depending on your skin concern.

The ampoule comes in a sturdy glass jar and thanks to its dropper design, it is very easy to dispense and control the amount of ampoule. I was a little surprised by the size of the ampoule, as they usually come in smaller size.

The ampoule has a thick watery texture and a little does go a long way. Just a drop or 2 is sufficient to apply the entire face. As SHO has claimed, the ampoule does absorb into the skin fairly quickly, despite the thick consistency. I was a little worried that the ampoule would be too rich for my skin, but it turns out my skin is loving it! My skin is looking healthier and plumper. Also, I noticed I have less breakouts compare to before, and my acne scars are healing faster too.

There are a few ways that you could optimize the use of the ampoule:

1. Ampoule + Foundation/BB Cushion
For those of you who want to have a dewy look or increase the hydration of your skin, add a few drops of ampoule into your foundation or BB Cushion. I heard about combining skin care and foundation for the longest time, but this is my first time trying out. I started out with 2 drops of ampoule and work my way up.

It does give the skin a dewy look, but somehow it is now working for the BB Cream I'm using. Somehow my foundation just couldn't stay. However, I also understand this method only work for some foundations/BB cream. So, do experiment and play around to see which one work for you.

2. Ampoule + Moisturizer
If you find your skin to be exceptionally dry or scaly, try mixing the ampoule with your moisturizer, and use this as a sleeping mask. This way, it would help to lock in and seal all the moisture in the skin and prevent any water loss. This is my favourite way of using the ampoule. Not only it saves me time, but I noticed my skin looks and is so much healthier. On top of this, my skin appears to be less oily too!

If are not sure how your skin would react, I would suggest you go easy this. Probably want to start with a ratio of 1:1 and observe.

Another important stop in my beauty routine is facial mask. Facial masks are perfect skin care treatment to help with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help hydrate the skin, remove excess oils, help improve the appearance of the pores, remove impurities from the skin, and the essential oils in the masks can be quite therapeutic.

SHO Wrinkle Life Peptide Ampoule Mask - 7pcs (RM 159). Unlike many conventional masks that are meant for daily use, this is a treatment mask and it contains 27ml of ampoule to provide visible results in just one application. This means you don't need to use it every day to see the results. In fact, many users have said to see results after one use.

The treatment mask contains:

Peptide - The most effective ingredient for elasticity of skin.
Marine Originated Collage Composite - Effectively moisture the skin.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 & Adenosine Components - Well known for its outstanding anti-aging effects, making the skin healthier and look younger.
Active components of Glycosaminoglycans & Lecithin - Helps to achieve a moist and elastic skin texture.

Some of the key benefits of the Wrinkle Lift Peptide Ampoule Masks are skin firming, enhancing the skin elasticity and healthy, and moisturizing. So, it is recommended to use if you have rough, flaky and/or aging skin.

I've been using the mask once a week and I absolutely love the mask a lot! When removing the mask, I noticed the mask is soaked with ampoule. So, you probably want to be very careful when removing the mask from the package, to avoid dripping the ampoule all over the place.

The mask sits nicely on my face and despite packed with ampoule, it doesn't drip thanks to its thick consistency. In just one usage, I could feel my skin is so much more moisturized and plump up. Since this is a treatment mask, I tend to use it once a week or the night before of an event/function.

I used to think with my combination skin, it is very hard to find a product that not only works in giving my skin enough moisture but at the same time, doesn't create more breakouts. How wrong could I have been!

If you are looking for still looking for a good skin lifting solutions while keeping your skin moisturized, you definitely should consider SHO! On top of this, SHO also offers a few other ampoules and masks that address different skin need. You can get them from their Facebook, Instagram, and 50 selected SaSa stores.
