Sometimes you just want to give your skin an extra boost, particularly if you have a special occasion like a wedding or graduation to attend. The new Advanced Time Response Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule Set from AmorePacific contains 4 ampoules formulated to be used over 4 weeks to help promote collagen synthesis to give skin additional smoothness and elasticity. Corrective rather than preventative, the ampoules also help reduce discoloration.
Described as “age defying immersion therapy,” the ampoules feature a concentrated amount of a green tea active called EGCG, said to contain antioxidant benefits that are 200 times more powerful than vitamin E. These antioxidants work to extend the lifespan of cells and promote collagen production, which increases the thickness of the epidermis. Another green tea active called saponin also enhances collagen production resulting in fuller, better toned, more youthful-looking skin.
Clinical texts support the company’s claims. With continued use EGCG provides a 28.5% increase in skin smoothness and a 10.2% increase in skin elasticity.
In order to ensure the potency of the ampoules, the formula is not activated until just before being used. Each Time Response intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule consists of two individual vials that are mixed together just prior to use. Once mixed, the ampoule is active for 7 days. Apply the serum morning and evening underneath your regular skincare regimen.
AmorePacific prides itself on offering breakthrough products that combine the best of technology with Asian botanicals. In fact, no water at all is contained in the ampoules, it’s pure product. However, such technology comes with a cost. The set of 4 ampoules is priced at $550. The good news is that since only 1 ampoule is activated at a time, you don’t have to use the ampoules in 4 consecutive weeks. You can save them and just activate whenever you have a special occasion coming up and your skin needs a boost.
The Time Response Intensive Skin Renewal Ampoule Set launched this month and is available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
At the same time, AmorePacific brings its #1 best selling cream in Asia to U.S. shores. A preventative treatment, Future Response Age Defense Crème ($195) works at a cellular level to fight multiple types of free radical damage for 24 hours.
Future Response contains a blend of green tea and pine mushroom extracts that work to control inflammation, provide antioxidant protection and block the receptors that trigger aging. According to AmorePacific, it is the only beauty company to actually grow its own green tea. It also contains a fusion off 12 Asian botanicals that target 12 different triggers of aging.
In clinical tests, Future Response Creme prevented environmental triggers from causing further damage by up to 104%
Future Response Age Ddefense Crème is available at select Sephora stores in the U.S. and Canada.
