PURE HEALS - PROPOLIS 90 AMPOULE
Pure Heals by Nature Village is a Korean company who is specialized in skincare and other beauty products which are made with natural extracts. Their propolis collection doesn't only include this ampoule, they also have a cleanser, a milk, toner and cream. What is propolis? It's a honey extract with not only honey but it includes valuable ingredients from plants as well. Propolis main formula is Polanoid, and it claims to be great to calm the skin while keeping it moist. The 90% propolis extract ampoule claims to be good for wrinkle improvement, whitening, calming, balance care and intensive moisture. They don't test on animals and it's paraben free. It contains 30ml of product.
The packaging is yellow and has a few bees on it. It has English as well as Korean descriptions on it. On the packaging they explain propolis as "a mysterious mixture of natural materials made by honeybees, which collect the sap of plants and mix them with their saliva, adding beneficial enzymes, It contains nutritional ingredients to protect the skin from both internal and external irritants and repair damaged skin. It helps restore skin to health by soothing sensitive skin."
It comes in a glass bottle with a dropper, make sure to check the expiry date at the bottom of the product. The dropper is quite big so it's easy to get a lot of product out at once, so it's important to do it slowly to get a few drops out.

HOW TO USE
After face wash, use a suitable toner for your skin type and apply a moderate amount of this product onto the skin with light patting motions.
It has a floral/herbal scent to it which I'm not a big fan of. Luckily it's very light, so once applied on the skin you can't really smell the scent.
HOW IT FEELS
The ampoule is yellow and a bit sticky after application. It absorbs within a few seconds which is great, it depends how much you put on your face as well of course. It takes longer if you apply a lot at once, but a little goes a long way. After application it creates a glossy finish which I love.
WHERE TO BUY?
It's sold at ibuybeauti.com for $13.21, nice price I would say! Great option if you're on a budget.
I can see why this was one of the best beauty products according to Allure magazine. I have been using this ampoule for two weeks and this product feels great on my skin. My combination dry skin likes it. It is soothing and moisturizing. What I also love about this product is that it creates a glow on the skin after application, my skin looks more radiant after which is great. Great for people with a dull skin I would say. I didn't notice anything about wrinkle care and whitening effect since I only used it for 2 weeks. Unfortunately I'm not a big fan of the scent, but luckily it goes away once I apply it on my face. If you are interested in adding propolis into your skincare, you might give this one a try, it's a cheap one as well!
