HAPPY VALENTINES DAY BUNNIES!! I have another great Hunnyybase review for you todayy!
This product to my left is the Elisha Coy Moist Up Super Hyalurone Ampoule Serum, 1.7 OZ. I got this little baby at CVS because I was all out of moisturizer and I wanted to get a new Kbeauty product.
My first though upon seeing this serum was like… “is this even Kbeauty? Look at the name..” But according to Elisha Coy’s website, they are a “natural cosmetics brand founded in South Korea with offices in Japan, China, Hong Kong, and the United States”.
So as you can see, the bottle is amazingly sanitary with its dropper top, so you don’t dip your fingers in a jar container 🙂 Kudos to that~ The bottle itself is made of translucent pink glass for a refined look~
More product details:
- Contains 70% fermented lotus flower water instead of purified water!
- Australia’s pure fermented lotus flower water leaves your skin hydrated and clear”
“Tonify skin with toner every morning and evening and use the dropper to apply and spread smoothly over face. Wrap face with palms for deep penetration.”
This ampoule serum feels very nice! Silky, smooth, a touch sticky-not too noticeable for me although reviews online complain about the stickiness. I think this is a thicker serum than other ones I’ve tried in the past but I think it’s a good thing because it keeps my dry skin moisturized! I’ve gone through 3/4 of the bottle now and it’s been about 5 months. The dropper applicator works divine, no problems on that front either 🙂

Okay first of all I wanted to find this “70% Fermented lotus flower water” they claim in the product description but at first glance I can’t find it.. I don’t see the word “Lotus” anywhere in the ingredient list. But eventually after looking into it, the Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract (highlighted in green above) seems to another word for Sacred Lotus. Now, it leaves out the word “water” so i’m not sure if the extract was mixed with water afterwards or what.. I’m not a chemist here… Hopefully one day I can gain some more insight on this!
Butylene Glycol- An organic alcohol that is used as a solvent and conditioning agent, however little to no data in regards to ingredient safety.
PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil– white pasty substance that comes from Castor Oil. This ingredient is meant to act as a surfactant, however it can contain a high toxicity to your organ system. Is it that damaging? Probably not, it is generally safe to use concentrations of this oil from 0.5% to 10%.
Phenoxyethanol – moderate rating. irritant. must be used in approved amounts to avoid high toxicity.
Fragrance- Never great to put in skincare.
Alcohol– what kind of alcohol? I would really like some clarification on this..
Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract and Gentiana Lutea Root Extract-Great rating due to its skin-soothing and antioxidant properties
Overall there were no products that raised any red flags or had damaging concerns. Does it live up to its claims on the bottle, “Moisture beyond your expectations”? Sadly, no. I didn’t think it was THAT moisturizing. I still needed night cream after this. For a serum, it did its job though. I didn’t find this serum irritating or super sticky- the only negative I can think of is the price- $13.. Ha.. so expensive of a teeny bottle of serum. And frankly the packaging could be better. 4/5 stars. Will I repurchase? Probably not. It was a nice product but not a holy grail worthy item.
