This is a review on the leegeeham Grow Hyal B5 Toner and Ampoule. To read the Vita Propolis Ampoule and Cream review then click here! Also these were sent to me in exchange for reviews.
Leegeeham started and was known in the Korean cosmetic and skincare community for it’s successful dermatology clinic. Then over the years they started to develop their own brand of skincare. The leegeeham Grow line is one of 4 different lines they carry, but they do have also products outside of these four categories. The grow line also includes a Hyal5 face cream and cica serum and cream.
The main ingredients they use in this line are 5 kinds of hyaluronic acids, pro vitamin B (panthenol), and glyceryl glucoside, which they aptly call ‘Hyal B5’. The five hyaluronic acids are hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, sodium acetylated hyaluronate, ascorbyl propyl hyaluronate, Hydroxypropyl trimonium hyaluronate, and sodium hyaluronate. This hyaluronic acid cocktail delivers moisture deep down into the skin, refines skin texture, treats dryness, and helps stimulate collagen production making your skin looking plumper and younger. Added to this is the Pro Vitamin B5 also known as Panthenol which helps lock in the moisture from evaporating. Glyceryl glucoside helps skin elasticity and stimulates aquaporins, water channels in cells.
The toner comes in a clear heavy plastic packaging with a pump and a top cover. The liquid inside is a viscous formula, but when you rub it in it becomes a thinner liquid. It has a very faint herbal scent. The extracts that are in this toner are Ginseng fruit extract, vanilla fruit extract, Centella Asiatica extract, kava extract, burdock extract, and mushroom extract, and yam extract. It also contains oils, olive oil, white yam leaf oil, nutmeg kernel oil, carrot seed oil, cowpea seed oil, white chamois flower oil.
I love thicker toners like this one, so I instantly fell in love with it. It does have a very slight sticky feeling, but because I have very dry skin my skin loves it! I don’t mind it because it’s the first step in my skincare routine. it absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t irritate my skin or eczema patches. I would recommend this if you like the Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Toner, personally I like the leegeeham one a little better because it’s suited more for drier skin types. For 120ml is costs 26,000KRW.
This ampoule comes in the same style of packaging as the toner but with a dropper. The liquid is a thicker than the toner and the ingredients are pretty much identical as the toner with the exception of a handful of ingredients. So This is a bottle of a more concentrated level of the toner which is great since the toner is so good! However, the stickiness of the product is also increased. It spreads easily on the skin and absorbs quickly. The immediate finish is a bit sticky, but as it dries it lessens. Also because I will put on cream afterwards the stickiness is not much of a problem, it’s actually feels quite nice as it feels like it’s sealing in the moisture. For 30ml it costs 28,000KRW.
I would highly recommend this line to dry skin types and anyone who has seasonal dryness. The toner and ampoule are two items that can easily be added into your skincare routine. Having used the Hyal B5 and the Vita Propolis together it made my skin GLOW. I have tons of other skincare to review, but these products really made it hard for me to take a break after using them consistently for 3 weeks. I can’t wait to get back on it!
Bonus mask review!
The Hyal B5 Moisture Mask is also a great product. It doesn’t have all of the 5 Hyaluronic acid but still contains Sodium hyaluronate. It also has Ceremide NP, Centella Asiatica extract, and panthenol. The sheet mask is so soft and adheres well on the skin. The fit is nice and the effects are nothing short of great! Love the mask.
