Review: COSRX Full Fit Propolis Light Ampoule

With 80% propolis extract, this ampoule helps to increase the skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture, leading to a healthier complexion with a natural glow and softness. Apply after cleansing and toning.

Yesstyle

I went on a limb to try this product, as it costs about $21 on Yesstyle (2 weeks shipping) or $25 on Amazon, for a small amount of ampoule in return. However, it’s quickly become one of my favorite additions to my skin routine. Looking for something that was moisturizing but wouldn’t trigger acne, I was attracted to the high concentration of propolis in the this ampoule as well as its inoffensive ingredient list. Hoping it would fight acne (fungal and hormonal) but not be overly drying, I was so pleased with its performance that I proceeded to order two more bottles as soon as I saw results.

Ingredient Pros and Cons:

Ingredients: Propolis Extract, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Carbomer, Panthenol, Arginine

Significant Pros

  • Propolis Extract (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, moisturizing)
  • Butylene Glycol (hydrating agent)
  • Glycerin (moisturizing, humectant)
  • Betaine (moisturizing, humectant)
  • Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract (debatably anti-inflammatory and moisturizing)
  • Sodium Hyaluronate (hydrating, humectant)
  • Panthenol (moisturizing, humectant)
  • Arginine (moisturizing, calming)

Significant Cons

  • Nothing (nothing)

The Takeaway

Keeping acne at bay, this ampoule has all the moisturizing, calming effects of propolis without any of the sticky residue of honey. Quickly absorbing and devoid of any harmful ingredients, I can see this being useful for any skin-types, but have found it especially rewarding for my sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin.
