Skincare from a professional hair care brand? L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule Review

L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule

Unusual products like L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule are my favourite - you never know what you can expect from them. La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule looks more like a professional skincare treatment than a product that you can use at your home. Can this ampoule be the final solution for dehydrated skin?

About L'ador 

L'ador might be the unpopular brand for you, but I know this brand as a haircare brand - I might be an esthetician, but my speciality is haircare and I love to work with haircare brands especially when I got opportunities to translate some treatments that are coming to EU, sadly I barely ever do this. L'ador history stars in 2007. The name L'ador comes from two English words - Leaf & Adorable, both words are supposed to show how L'ador focus on nature since (it's an eco brand), but it's also about the feeling L'ador wants to give to the client.

L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule - Packaging 

L'ador La Pause series has a nice design that reminds me of marble. Maybe, not the same Marble as Dear Dahlia uses (a South Korean makeup brand, the thing that makes Dear Dahlia different from competitors is characteristic marble packaging). L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule design reminds me of a lot of water and algae - one of the ingredients which you can find in L'ador's Ampoule. Once we open the box we can spot an ampoule and a syringe. I have to admit, I had to check youtube and L'ador website to figure out how to use it, even if there's no needle - the syringe is well protected. Don't worry about ampoule - it keeps the liquid safe.

L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule - Scent & Texture 

The green liquid doesn't contain any artificial colourants - it's a natural green colour. How is that even possible? Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex can impact the colour of a formula - it's a pigment, Chlorophyll in the name of this ingredient gives us a hint since Chlorophyll makes plants green. The formula is not oily or sticky. The scent is a bit fragrant - you can smell rose water.

L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule - Ingredients 

Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (51%), Purified Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Trehalose, Methyl Gluceth-20, Betaine, Sodium Hyaluronate (3,000Ppm), Allantoin, Panthenol, Aphanothece Sacrum Polysaccharide, Sodium PCA, Hypnea Musciformis Extract, Plankton Extract, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex, Benzyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Raspberry Ketone 

Rosa Centifolia Flower Water (51%) is a cabbage rose water. This type of rose is widely used in the beauty industry. It's a floral hydrosol distilled from rose petals, it's a refreshing and rejuvenating floral water. Purified Water is an ingredient that you can find in almost every product. Its purpose in products is easy - it's a solvent. Glycerin is one of the most popular humectants in skincare. There's a large number of myths around glycerin like it can clog your skin. It doesn't clog your pores, but too much glycerin can make a sticky layer on the epidermis and even make your skin dryer than before due to TEWL (Transepidermal Water Loss). Still, it's an ingredient that we want to see in formulas. Butylene Glycol is a moisturizer and solvent, but it's also alcohol. You see, not every alcohol in skincare is terrible. Some of them have positive effects on your skin - just like Butylene Glycol, which is a popular substance even in eco/green cosmetic products. Trehalose is sugar and another moisturizer in this formula. Methyl Gluceth-20 is a synthetic humectant. Betaine derives from sugar beets. It's an amino acid that keeps your skin moist, and you might want to use it in your haircare routine. Sodium Hyaluronate (3,000Ppm) is a salt form of a popular Natural Moisturizing Factor - Hyaluronic Acid. Allantoin is a powerful ingredient in skincare, and I think we all know it since the early days. My family didn't imagine my childhood without this cream. Allantoin derives from comfrey, and it has soothing properties, but it also speeds up the healing process, which makes it ideal for acne-prone skin and sensitive skin. Panthenol is nothing else than Pro-vitamin B5, a soothing moisturizer with positive meaning to the skin barrier. It speeds up the healing process.

Aphanothece Sacrum Polysaccharide or Sacran is a polysaccharide extracted from seaweed. This type of seaweed can be found in Japan. Sacran is supposed to help with transepidermal water loss (TEWL). According to L'ador, this ingredient can absorb 6l of water per gram, and it works better than Hyaluronic Acid. It helps with inflammation, and it leaves a moisturizing film on your skin. Sodium PCA stands for Sodium Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid, and it's a humectant. It leaves a hydrating film on your skin that prevents transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Sodium PCA naturally occurs in the skin. Hypnea Musciformis Extract is an extract obtained from seaweed. This alga is supposed to help with skin moisture. Xanthan Gum is a thickener. Disodium EDTA is a synthetic stabilizer and preservative. It helps with the viscosity of the product. Chlorophyllin-Copper Complex is a green dye used in skincare product as the pigment that gives colour to makeup and skincare products. It's also an antioxidant. Ethylhexylglycerin is a preservative, it keeps your products fresh and protected. Raspberry Ketone is a scent ingredient.

Is L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule a final solution for dehydrated skin? 

I know L'ador as a haircare brand, I was shocked to see L'ador has skincare products as well! The first use wasn't the easiest one, after removing the protecting cap from the ampoule, I couldn't figure out how to use a syringe. The product has no instruction in English which for me isn't a problem, but I guess even with a manual in English - opening the product with no photos or videos of how to do that would be hard. Believe me, you can show me a manual to something in Polish, and I'll still do it a different way. To unlock the syringe you have to remove the two-part protecting piece and then stuck the syringe in a lid, keep it upside down and pull the syringe. 0,5ml of L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule should be enough for your face & neck, sometimes I use up to 1ml. According to L'ador, Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule should calm your irritated skin, moisturize and nourish it. Moreover, this ampoule helps with skin smoothness and firmness thanks to a 3-layer moisturizing ampoule made out of Hyaluronic Acid, Trehalose and Sacran - from what I understand it is supposed to work on 3 different levels of the skin, for example, Sacran makes a protective film on the surface of the skin to protect it from TEWL. Trehalose goes a bit deeper and Hyaluronic Acid - even deeper. I thought that I might use this ampoule with iontophoresis or sonophoresis, but since my device has some "issues", I'm not even trying. We only know that L'ador used HA 3000 ppm (parts per million), but in general, I wouldn't expect Hyaluronic Acid to go very, very deep into the skin.

The green colour of a liquid was a bit suspicious to me, but L'ador is an eco brand with cruelty-free & vegan-friendly products. I was at first expecting artificial colourants and scents, but the formula turned out to be calming! I'm on Aklief (I say that in every article lately) - an acne treatment based on Trifarotene - 4th gen retinoid. Even if Trifarotene is supposed to be milder than older generations of retinoids, I had issues with dryness, especially after my last lectures at the university where my natural barrier got destroyed with an alcohol-based cleanser, that's what you get when your university uses products from "cheap" brands. Not every professional brand is worth its price. Back to La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule, I can't check how it works on fine lines but it's one of few serums which I can use currently. My skin gets easily irritated, and this ampoule is a miracle for my skin. It's not sticky or oily, it leaves a delicate film on the surface of the skin. It's not a problem to use it under the makeup. I do not use it everyday, but every time I feel like my skin gets dry, I'm happy to have L'ador La Pause Blue Marine Hydro Ampoule in my stash. Overall, L'ador is not a great hair care brand, but it has potential as a skincare brand, and you shouldn't sleep on it!
