Manyo Factory Ultra Moist Spa Mineral Spa Treatment Ampoule

Product Name
Manyo Factory Ultra Moist Spa Ampoule

The Claim 
This is a super revitalizing functional ampoule makes rough and dry skin smoother and nourishes skin for healthy glow

Where does it fit in your routine?
I use this after all my watery toner steps but before emulsions.

Size and Price
Each bottle contains 50ml of product. I got this from ebay for $14 from one of blueprint21’s crazy auctions. It is also have it regularly listed at $25.99. It is also available on MelodyCosme for $30 or Koreadepart for $25.25.

Packaging
Ampoule comes in a frosted glass bottle with a dropper cap. I have the old packaging. The new packaging is a turquoise blue color instead of the navy blue shown here. The dropper cap sucks. It’s clumsy and doesn’t grab onto a lot of product.

Fragrance
It smells like Sprite. I don’t care for the scent, but it’s faint enough not to be a problem.

Color and texture
This ampoule is translucent white in color and has a cream-serumy texture.

Performance

To use this, I fill the dropper 4-5 times and apply the ampoule to my face and neck. Immediately after applying, my skin looks amazing. It’s plump, smooth, and glowing. However, the effect is short lived, and an hour later, it’s as if I didn’t use this at all. Long term, I haven’t noticed any effects to overall skin appearance or hydration levels, and when I don’t use this in my routine, it makes no difference at all to how my skin looks.

A lot of people I follow on Instagram seem to really love this, but it just doesn’t really do anything for me. My skin usually isn’t dehydrated, despite being dry, so it’s possible it’s just not suited for my skin type, but I usually do see some improvement (for instance, with Mizon HA 100 Ampoule) from hyaluronic acid products. Bizarre.

The Takeaway

Great sounding ingredients, but for my skin the results just didn’t deliver.

Overall score: 2.6/5

    I was really excited to see this review, have been eyeing this for a while! Such a disappointment that it didn’t deliver, for you. I’m still sorely tempted by it though, seaweed does amazing things to my face and I just really love Manyo Factory products.

      It makes my skin look so great, but the effect just doesn’t last at all. I wonder if I’m missing something because so many people seem to like it. Maybe if I use the corresponding cream?
