Propolis Ampoule: the Powerful Antioxidant to Have in Your Routine
by bbonJan 29, 2019
If you’re a skincare junkie like myself, then you are probably already well familiar with Propolis and have a general understanding of the key benefits it has for the skin. Although, are you just as familiar with polyphenol in conjunction with propolis?“I for one know I wasn't!”If you’re unfamiliar with both, then this is the right place for you. So let’s dive deep into the skincare world and take a look at what these two ingredients are and my personal experience using them in the By Wishtrend Polyphenol in Propolis 15% Ampoule.
What is Propolis and how does it help my skin?
Always a great question! Put simply, propolis is a counter by product of honey. Bees create propolis as a “glue” that is used to structure the honeycombs together.Think of it as a highly concentrated version of honey, only better. Instead of eating propolis, we instead use it on the skin as a topical treatment for wounds, irritation, and nourishment.“Think of it as the glue for your skin, it strengthens, restores, and puts things back together.”
What is Propolis good for?
If you’re unsure if this propolis serum is right for you, then you might want to consider incorporating it into your routine if you identify with any of the following:• Skin is dry• Tight• Wrinkles• Fine lines• Cracking• Flaking• Easily irritatedEssentially, if you have chronically dry skin, aging skin, or are simply seeking to start using anti-aging products in your skin that have antioxidants, then this is an ingredient you must try!
What is Polyphenol and what does it do for me?
It sounds complex, yet polyphenol is as simple as being a powerful antioxidant that is found in dark chocolate, teas, and berries. This strong anti-aging ingredient when used in skincare speeds up skin cell reproduction, healing, moisture retention and has even shown signs of being a sunblock for the skin.“Essentially, it’s a secret anti-aging powerhouse!”When combined with the restorative, skin healing properties of propolis, you get a wonderful anti-aging, youth restoring cocktail for the skin.

Now that we all are cleared up on what exactly this anti-aging serum does for the skin, it’s time to share my personal experience with this product!“I’m half way through the bottle and shocked!”It’s been just over 1 month since I have begun using the By Wishtrend Polyphenol in Propolis 15% Ampoule and I must say, I am pleasantly surprised and here’s why.
Scent, Texture & Packaging
For starters, the packaging is lovely! The anti aging serum comes in a wonderful tinted transparent glass bottle with a glass i-dropper for dispensing the product. What I love about this is the fact I can see how much product I have used.“I’ll know when I’m running low and potentially need to purchase more.”In terms of texture, when dispensed onto the skin, the propolis serum has a rather thick texture which reminds of honey, only a less sticky version. On that note, the ampoule is not at all sticky on the skin when applied generously. It has a smooth texture that instantly feels hydrating and moisturizing. Lastly, the thing I am happiest about it…“Ithas no scent!”As I am someone with sensitive skin, especially in regards to fragrance, finding a skincare product that is scent free makes me very happy.
My Experience & Results
At first, I was unsure if this serum was worth using. It was hydrating and moisturizing, but in terms of anti-aging and repairing, I couldn't see the instant result as for many other ampoules out there since the effects are more visible when you use it for a period of time.However, I found myself reaching for it daily! As it currently is mid winter where I live, my skin had been extremely dry and cracking, especially around my nose and inner cheeks.“To my surprise, in two weeks everything changed!”I no longer had cracking skin around my nostrils and nose, my cheeks were no longer tight and peeling, and my skin overall felt amazing which was something I hadn’t been able to say in a couple months!My skin felt and looked better, but unfortunately for this reviews purpose, I can’t say much in terms of wrinkle, fine line, or acne scar healing as my skin originally had neither of those. However, in regards to nourishing and healing, I can 100% say this propolis serum is outstanding!“I was skeptical at first, but not I use it daily!”If you’re in need of a skin healing serum this winter season, you need to try the By Wishtrend Polyphenol in Propolis 15% Ampoule! Even as just a regular day cream or night cream for those with oily and combination dry skin! It really is a treat to use.
