The Plant Base Time Stop Collagen Ampoule Review:
When I first got this ampoule, I was basically looking for a cruelty-free serum that is 100% GOOD ingredients. I didn’t want any iffiness with any of the ingredients on the list, so I meticulously looked up 20 different top-selling serum ingredients lists to analyze. This ampoule was a clear winner with goodies packing the long list.
It looks super sleek and high end, so the lightweight packaging really surprised me since it looks so glass-like, but I’m really not complaining. It still looks sleek and functions very well, with the ampoule dropper filling up easily with just a push of the screw top. I love using it as a result of having the little mechanism!
Packaging aside, this little bottle is full of pure magic. 77% of it is a mushroom extract, which is as good of a humectant as hyaluronic acid. Most of the ingredients following all have some sort of water-retention capabilities. Licorice appears in the mix and functions as a UV-damage inhibitor. It has skin lightening properties that target hyperpigmentation, aka, sunspots.
The biggest benefit I found while using this serum is the amazing hydration! It doesn’t have a super-gloopy texture and falls somewhere between gloop and watery substance on the texture scale. It absorbs quickly, leaving skin hydrated and glowing! There’s a tiny bit of stickiness after use, but it dries up within a few minutes.
Since there’s no added fragrance, the formula itself doesn’t have any noticeable scent. I’ve been using it consistently in the evenings, and while I don’t see any significant differences in terms of skin texture, my skin feels and looks more plump, radiant and my blemishes have virtually disappeared. I would 100% repurchase this little miracle serum.

I absolutely love hyaluronic acid in my moisturisers and serums. I just didn’t know mushroom extract had the
capability to mimic its properties. This was such an interesting and informative read. Thank you!
Absolutely! Who knew, right? The texture and feel of this serum are actually very similar to the hyaluronic serum from The Ordinary.
