The newly released “Rose Hydra Glory Ampoule” is an illuminating and hydrating ampoule that gives skin three-dimensional radiance thanks to Rose HD Complex™, which combines Damask Rose Water and 5-Fold Hyaluronic Acid.
The product boasts a watery formula that is lightweight and yet, deeply hydrating. It’s a fast-acting ampoule that is rapidly absorbed and leaves a thin, non-sticky moisture film on the surface of the skin, quickly replenishing skin with just one application.
It contains 60.4% Damask Rose Water, the key ingredient of Mamonde’s Rose Water line, and provides intense hydration with five different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid. It also contains microbiome ingredients to support skin barrier function and peptides to increase skin elasticity.
Mamonde’s “Rose Hydra Glory Ampoule” improves moisture retention by 631% immediately after use, and deeply hydrates skin by penetrating up to 10 layers deep into skin surface. In addition, the moisture film formed by the ampoule was shown to last for 72 hours and skin texture showed 100% improvement immediately after use.
