[Review] Mila D'opiz Ampoule (Vitamin C, Purifying, Calm and Nourish)

Hello! It's May already!

Time flies so fast, isn't it? It's also been two years since I started to learn about skin care and keep discovering interesting products for my skin needs until now. I know it's not an easy journey, having a good and bad time where my acne kinda acting up sometimes make me tired and frustrated. But I know I won't learn anything if I don't do the trial and error, even though some times I'm questioning myself whether to continue this "trial and error" process or just go straight to the doctor hahaha (well, it's also not an easy decision.)

This time, I decided to try another ampoule for my acne. I know my skin likes minimal skincare routine, the basic step will never fail me, but my friends who have tried these ampoules are saying that it works for their acne and pigmentation, which makes me curious about these Mila D'opiz ampoules. Fortunately I am given the chance to try the ampoules (Vitamin C - which the one I am so curious about as it can helps the cystic acne, Purifying - suitable for small acne and whiteheads, Calm & Nourish - to calm the skin redness). So here's my thought after using them for about 6 weeks.





  • Mila D'opiz Vitamin C Ampoule


A concentrated ampoule packed with Sodium Ascorbyl Phospate or known as Vitamin C to help brighten the complexion, moisturise the skin, and help the regeneration process. 

I already heard so many positive feedbacks about this tiny ampoule especially the Vitamin C. Some of my friends think this ampoule is not only great for fading the acne pigmentation but also the cystic acne!

The ampoule, as you can see, packed in a small glass bottle. But if you see an ampoule this small it also means that this is a concentrated one and often works better than usual ampoule. This yellow-orangish comes in a watery form that makes it easier to spread and it feels light on skin. It has a fairly scent to it. This ampoule has two highlighted ingredients; Vitamin C for brightening and stimulate cell regeneration and Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid) to moisturise skin.

I only need a drop as spot treatment and two drops for wider area (cheeks, chin). I tried to use as a spot treatment for my cystic at first, after it gave a good effect, I use it too for my pigmentation on cheeks and it also works great. Why do I agree that this ampoule is great? I notice my cystic flatten and the pain is reduced and it heals that fast. Literally, amazing. On the other hand, my pigmentation starts to fade (but for the pigmentation, I also use other products and regimen to help fasten the process). My only wish is it comes in bigger size but still in the same price or lower hahaha­čść





Ingredients?
Aqua (Water), Butylene Glycol, Sodium Ascorbyl Phospate, Phenoxyethanol, Citric Acid, Xantham Gum, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, CI 19140 (Yellow 5), CI 14700 (Red 4), Sodium Chloride, Sodium Sulfate

pH: 6.7 - 7.5 (sumber: www.miladopizindonesia.com)




  • Mila D'opiz Purifying Ampoule

A concentrated ampoule to help normalizes sebum production, reduces inflammation, controls bacterial growth and works against blackheads.

This green tiny ampoule, as you can see, packed in a small glass bottle. The texture is watery with a strong scent, combination of alcohol and perfume (I do think this scent is strong to my liking, but YMMV). The ingredients highlight in this ampoule, taken by www.miladopizindonesia.com, A.C Net Complex to control sebum production and Sebaoclear as anti-bacterial to treat inflammation and irritation.

I was told this ampoule works well for the small acne but it maybe drying for some people so I do try spot treatment first and boost my hydration to make sure it doesn't dry out my skin. Fortunately, my skin accepts it and it helps my combination skin stay in control. I also try layering with the vitamin C ampoule and it delivers better result.

  • Mila D'opiz Calm & Nourish Ampoule
A concentrated ampoule to soothe and nourish the skin, promotes regeneration, and moisturize. Its texture also makes it ideal for long massages.


The Nourish and Calm ampoule has thicker texture compare to the other two. It is also more sticky and the finishing is a bit oily, but if you want to have that glow this surely your partner! Although it feels oily (because it contains several types of oils), it absorbs pretty fast and I am sure you glowskin-seeker will like this. It does feel moisturizing and I agree it feels great for massaging. It also smells good kinda reminds me of Huxley but still tolerable.




Squalane, Macadamia Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, those ingredients are good in moisturizing the skin and they are rich of fatty acids (you can google it for more details). I find the ampoule is pretty oily to use during daytime, in my opinion this is more suitable for night. I some times only use the ampoule itself after toner without sealing it with moisturizer and it still enough, or I use it as a spot treatment to calm my acne because it helps calming the redness.
Tips: if you are redness-prone yet you're afraid this ampoule is too oily for you, use it as a spot treatment. Use a tiny amount of it and massage it so gently around the redness, leave it overnight and the next morning you'll see the result!

Ingredients?
Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Macadamia Integrifolia (Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil), Squalane, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Triisodecyl Trimellitate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract, Octyldodecanol, Plukenetia Volubilis Seed Oil, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum (Fragrance), Retinyl Palmitate, PEG-8, Tocopherol, Aqua (Water), Schizandra Chinensis Fruit Extract, Ubiquinone, Ceramide 2, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid
