Question
What is the difference between a serum and an ampoule? I'm a little confused as to the major differences between serums and ampoules.

    No real difference gf :) honestly marketing terminology

    They're the same thing basically. I would just use them interchangeably when you're thinking about your skincare routine 🙂

    Yup, not really a difference! I think ampoule traditionally comes from K-beauty, like they created the terminology. But the functionalities of serum and ampoule are the same–essentially to treat specific skin concerns.

    There isn't a huge difference! Ampoules are often thicker in consistency than serums and often have a higher concentration of active ingredients to help target skin concerns. They belong in the same step in your skincare routine – before your moisturizer and after your toner.
