My skin often goes through phases in which is need more moisture than it needs, especially in the summer. This ampoule replaces the need for moisturiser and can definitely replace my other hydrating products (I don’t use this alone because of its thick consistency). My only gripe/con is the pipette. For such a thick ampoule, the pipette doesn’t suck enough product and so you kinda have to go back in again the suck more product out. This is my third bottle so I highly recommend.
