Centella asiatica or Gotu Kola is an amazing ingredient to include in your skincare if you are dealing with an inflamed or irritated skin. Nowadays many brands are including hydrating toners, ampoules and serums containing centella for improving the overall texture of the skin.
In today’s post I am sharing my experience with COSRX Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule.
Coming to the product details-

Benefits of key ingredients-
Centella asiatica extract- this ingredient is rich in amino acids, fatty acids and phytochemicals. Adding a centella based product helps in healing and soothing the skin due to its anti-inflammatory action.
Chondrus crispus extract- this is also known as Irish moss which is a species of red algae. It helps in promoting optimal hydration in the skin, protects it from stress damage and improves the lipid barrier with the help of its hydrophilic molecules.
Sugarcane extract- helps in reducing redness and treats blemishes on the skin. It adds a subtle glow to the skin and reduces dullness.
Madecassoside- this is an active ingredient of centella asiatica which has anti-redness and anti-scaling effects. It promotes healing and calms inflamed skin.
Panthenol- also known as Vitamin B-5 which helps in wound healing and delivers anti-inflammatory benefits. It improves hydration, elasticity and provides a smooth appearance to the skin.
My experience with the product-
I do love to use centella products in skincare. They are amazing to heal skin, improve lipid barrier and reduce inflammation. As I try out various products on my skin sometimes I do get irritation and slight inflammation. To reduce those effects I rely on such products to calm down my skin.
The ampoule sinks nicely into the skin giving immediate hydration and smoothness to the skin. It can be paired with all the skincare actives and best to use when you are using chemical peels for exfoliation.
The ampoule does not feel heavy on the skin and gives a nice glow to the skin.
