For our third edition of “does this product actually deliver results” we’re trying out the AmorePacific Moisture Plumping Nectar Cream with before and after pictures!
I’m always on the lookout for a good daytime moisturizer. This seemed like a good fit, as I have enjoyed every AmorePacific product I’ve tried previously. I love AmorePacific so I wanted to try this new offering.
I used this product every night as the last step in my night-time skincare routine. I have aging, normal to dry skin. Mostly normal throughout the seasons; I live in a temperate climate.
My skincare routine was as follows: Pyun Kang Yul Toner, Missha Time Revolution FTE, Sulwhasoo First Treatment Essence, AmorePacific Single Vintage Extract Essence, Holy Snails Shark Sauce, Stratia Liquid Gold & Fortify Oil, Tretinoin 1x/week .25% buffered.
About the AmorePacific Moisture Plumping Nectar Cream
There’s fragrance with AmorePacific products which can be cloying. Not bad, but somewhat annoying. The gel-cream texture is one that I love and drew me to the product. For $160 US, there’s a decent amount of product in the jar.
Full Ingredient List
When to use the AmorePacific Cream in routine
Generally speaking, The Ordinary Caffeine Solution should be used before your moisturizer, after you use a cleanser, toner, and/or serum. In other words, apply it after your serum. While you could use it all over your face, the Caffeine Solution is meant to be gently patted in around your eyes. Make sure you are gentle upon application, because the eye area can be pretty sensitive!
If you are using a hyaluronic acid serum, apply The Ordinary Caffeine Solution after the hyaluronic acid serum.
Week 1 Thoughts
Meh. I was disappointed. Not very plumping. I have good skin, I didn’t expect a miracle, but I’ve had better moisturization from other products.
I like to have a “sinking into my pores” feeling and this wasn’t it. I’m hydrated but that’s about it. The claim is to plump, there was no plumping. I have more from a sheet mask.
Week 2 Thoughts
Again, nothing stood out for me. It’s very ordinary. Nothing outstanding. I was disappointed, frankly.
The product is very ordinary. I’m sad as there are some really great products by this brand, but again, this wasn’t one of them. If you like AmorePacific and want to try an expensive moisturizer, then purchase. If you’re looking for a heavy-duty anti-aging moisturizer, then look at other brands within AmorePacific or elsewhere.
