Yowza! This is not your ordinary hydrating hyaluronic acid based ampoule.
The products that I have tried from Manyo Factory have each blown me away with their superior ingredient lists, formulations, product textures, and product effectiveness, this ampoule is no exception.
I know that some of you all have been around the block and back but trust me when I say that this will pique your interest.

- Why I woke up the night after drafting this blog and named it a holy grail
If you are a dry, patchy, mess, like I am, you will straight up become addicted to the effectiveness of this ampoule.
What is hyaluronic acid?
In short, hyaluronic acid is a component that can be found in your skin but can be lost as you age. As hyaluronic acid diminishes, your skin becomes thirsty and dehydrated which leads to moisture lost, wrinkles, lost of firmness.
With hyaluronic acid in your routine, you can help restore and strengthen your moisture barrier all while protecting your skin from pollutants thanks to its antioxidant properties.
Manyo Factory Ultra Moist Rebirth Ampoule
Ah, when I first tried this ampoule, I thought it was going to be a boring little thing. I already enjoyed the Ultra Moist Spa Ampoule, the Hada Labo Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Lotions (regular and Premium) so really what could this other ampoule give me? Soo vanilla, am I right?
Well NO, I was not right. This vanilla ampoule surprised me. It was more like a vanilla bean ampoule with a hint of sea salt and caramel.
What caught my eye
This ampoule is made with hydrating 30% hyaluronic acid in the form of sodium hyaluronate and trehalose, has only high quality plant water ingredients instead of filler ingredients like glycerin and water, as well as anti-aging adenosine and niacinamide.
What caught my skin
Immediately upon application, I fell in love with this ampoule. (What? Too dramatic? I really love it, ok? 😝) When you apply this ampoule straight onto your face (high points of your cheeks, forehead, cupid’s bow), you can feel an immediate slinkiness coat your skin.
After a light massage, the ampoule slips away into your skin, sinking in just a few swipes.
The texture of the famous Hada Labo Gokujyun Hyaluronic Acid Lotions are thinner in consistency and do not sink in nearly as quickly. What does the longer absorption rate mean? You will not need to wait around as long for your products to sink in which means the Manyo Factory Ampoule will give you peace of mind that you are getting 100% of the product into your face and not just smearing it onto your hands.
The texture of this product is slinky and sinks into your skin well. The product has a slight tackiness after drying. If you glide a finger over your face, it will not budge (I LOVE this feeling). After application, your skin will look mostly matte with a slight glow.
Just like how you need base makeup for crease and smudge-free makeup, you need a sturdy base in your skincare routine to make sure everything will sink into your skin well. This ampoule can act as that base if your intentions are for hydration, anti-aging.
Why not use Hada Labo for your base? While these “lotion” products are suppose to go on right after cleansing, they do not perform very well as base products. Instead, I prefer to use these “lotions” as essences, instead!
What effects I saw
Immediate hydration, plumping, and stronger skin barrier over time!
Other ways to use this ampoule
I really love dosing the area around my eyes with this ampoule! I have some intense lines going on under my eyes thanks to eye eczema and allergies so it is indeed extra soothing and the best base I can provide for my hardcore eye serum products.
How this ampoule got bumped up to holy grail over night.
About a month ago (end of May, it is now early July), I woke up to a huge mosquito bite. ON MY FACE. BELOW MY EYE. JUST...WHY!?! As a consequence, it evolved into an eczema/dry patchy nightmare because what doesn’t turn into a dry patchy nightmare when it comes to my skin?
I’ve been doing my usual brightening routine while supplementing it would Hada Labo’s Premium Hyaluronic Acid Lotion, a light emulsion, heavy cream, and then a sleeping mask I’ve been using to seal everything in.
Still, the blotchy, red dry patch evolved into TWO DRY PATCHES. What the crap?!
I tested this ampoule nonchalantly all over my face and loved it as base skincare. I then noticed that my mosquito-induced dry patches were finally becoming...less red and dry patchy. A couple evenings later, the 2nd dry patched that dropped off straight up DISAPPEARED. It’s been a course of about 1 day 2 nights at this point.
The following morning, I dropped a single drop onto my finger and tapped the ampoule into my dry patch and it was dry patchy no more.
This stuff it POTENT. And it is EXCELLENT.
