Thalgo Source Marine Ampoules
Thalgo Source Marine Ampoules

The Thalgo Absolute Radiance Ampoules have been sitting around for ages – I’d all but ignored them but for no particular reason I thought I’d give them a go. Put it like this – I had to photograph them straight away before they all got used up, because after two goes I knew I’d finish the box!

Basically, a box with 7 ampoules acts as a one week radiance reviver. My skin is in pretty good nick (I’m working my way through my pot of M&S at night-time and using Lancome in the morning, mostly, but I chop and change a lot) so makes an even better test case than skin that’s very dull because its harder to make a difference. But, there is absolutely no doubt – 4 ampoules in – that it has. My skin looks brighter and more perky and feels softer. I used to love some ampoules made by a brand called Babor and I am not patient with skin care – I like it to do something – anything – quite quickly and Thalgo Absolute Radiance Ampoules has ticked all of the almost instant boxes. If you get quick results like I did, don’t use up all of the box – save a few so you can just use as and when.

The full ingredient list is below and it explains why there are such good results – glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, citric acid, malic acid are key players, so if you don’t respond well to ‘peel’ type ingredients, avoid it. Otherwise, I’d have a stash of these in my beauty first aid drawer if you have a special event coming up or for the depths of winter when a glow is hard to come by. I’ve found them HERE at FeelUnique with 15% off – usual price is £39.50.
