The Isntree C-Niacin Toning Ampoule looked promising even at first sight, the ingredient lists is fantastic: many vitamins, antioxidants and plants extracts in one ampoule without any irritants! That is exactly what I was looking for!
Instead of water, Isntree uses sea buckthorn fruit extract which is full of vitamins. It contains vitamin B3 (2%), aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, B5, E, anti inflammatories etc. It is alcohol, paraben and fragrance free!
The Isntree C-Niacin Toning Ampoule is a very lightweight ampoule, it absorbs fast, it is not sticky or oily, the name “toning ampoule” describes this product perfectly. In my eyes it is the best “booster” to start my skincare routine with in the morning or evening. It is meant for everyday use, it is very gentle to the skin, I love the soothing and especially the brightening effect. I believe it helped fading my acne scars (red spots) a bit in a few months which is a very hard task! My skin can tolerate 2% niacinamide, I can use this ampoule twice a day, but I can’t say the same about my 10% niacinamide serum which I find a bit irritating (the strength of the The Ordinary serum was too much for me). It is perfect for sensitive skin too, it can be the base of your skincare routine because everyone’s skin needs some antioxidants and vitamins, especially the ones that are included in this product.
All skin types. It is the right ampoule for you if you are looking for something gentle, lightweight but effective with a lot of great ingredients. Whether you have sensitive, dry, oily or combination skin, you’ll love it! Perfect for beginners for a minimalist routine or for those who want to get the most out of each skincare steps.
