An ampoule (also ampul and ampule) is a small sealed vial which is used to contain and preserve a sample, usually a solid or liquid. Ampoules are made of glass. The walls of glass ampoules are usually sufficiently strong to be brought into a glovebox without any difficulty.
Considering this, how do I open glass ampoules?
To open the ampoule, hold it with both hands, with one thumb against the narrow top section. Hold the bottom of the ampoule firmly while pushing the top section away from you with easy, even pressure. A light pressure should cleanly snap the ampoule open, while using too much force can cause it to shatter.
Furthermore, what is ampoule used for?
An ampoule is a supercharged serum with higher concentrations of active ingredients that you're meant to use for a finite amount of time as a booster or when you're having a skin crisis of some sort. Chang recommends using them before your essence or serum. Ampoules usually come in smaller bottles with droppers.
What is the difference between vial and ampoule?
An ampule is a sealed glass container usually containing an injectable media and is one time use only when you break the glass top away. A vial typically seals with a stopper of rubber or screw cap or glass stopper and typically contains medications that are stored and used on regular occasions.
Can I use ampoule and serum together?
They do fulfill the same role. But in some cases, depending on your own style and preference, you can use the ampoule first to boost the serum – like a double boost! Also, keep in mind that you can spot treat, just applying the product to the area you want to affect – as would be the case with hyperpigmentation.
