What a surprise! Korean Skincare products are at my local CVS! Korean beauty, also known as K-Beauty has become extremely popular in the last few years. Skincare companies globally replicate products made in Korea, mainly because they’re concoctions are often revolutionary. When it comes to beauty, they are the crème de la crème. Thankfully, they are reasonably priced too, so I picked up the Elisha Coy Moist Up Hyalurone Ampoule Serum. Wanna know more? Then, keep reading.
Elisha Coy Moist Up Hyalurone Ampoule Serum Review
This product had me at hello! Cute packaging, pink ombre glass, and plump, caviar-like orbs floating in a clear, viscous liquid – what isn’t to love? For $12.99 at CVS, you get 1.7 fl oz. Strangely, it’s much more expensive on other websites, including on ElishaCoy.
The Moist Up Super Hyalurone Ampoule Serum contains 70% fermented lotus flower water. Lotus flower is supposed to purify, soothe, exfoliate, and firm the skin. Those are somewhat contradictory claims, in my opinion, but let’s move on.
The serum is extracted using a squeeze-top dropper. I use 2, sometimes 3 droppers-full for my whole face and neck. As I stated before, the serum has small orbs suspended throughout the liquid. I’m thinking those are castor oil droplets because there’s no “casing” and they dissolve immediately in my hands. 🤔 The scent is copious. It’s very floral, possibly from lavender. Once it’s absorbed into the skin, the fragrance disappears…mostly. Sensitive noses beware.
For my dry/combo skin it performed great under my makeup. I tried it with my regular Loreal Pro Glow foundation, as well as It Cosmetics CC Foundation. It absorbs quickly and added softness, smoothness, and a much needed burst of hydration to my skin. The hyaluronic acid also gave a slight plumpness. The results were slight, but I did feel a difference throughout the day.
Now, would I say this is worth the money? Yes and no. With one of the main ingredients being castor oil, to me that is kinda a turn-off. The scent is also a bit much. On the other hand, I really enjoy it as a makeup primer. I think it made a difference that I really enjoyed. I will continue to use it, but I may not repurchase. That is, unless something momentous happens between now and then. I’ll post updates on my social media. Click the links to follow: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Also subscribe to my Youtube here.

- I’m currently trying out a new foundation and I really, really don’t like it.
