After my mishap with fungal acne triggering skincare products, I purchased this propolis ampoule from cosrx (the repackaged version) in hopes to help boost hydration for my dehydrated skin as I had to drop a lot of products from my routine, as well as to heal my fungal acne, and it did just that. I wouldn't say it's light, as it is quite dense. However, if you use only 2-3 droplets for the whole face, it won't feel heavy at all. It spreads quite nice and leaves a glow on your face even after being fully absorbed. It does get pretty tacky on its own, but if you put on your moisturizer/oil afterwards then it goes away. As for the hydration, I find it to be good enough. It isn't as impressive as their snail mucin essence in terms of hydration, however it certainly is better than your watery serums/ampoules. I only gave 4 out of 5 stars due to the price to performance ratio. It's pretty pricey for such a basic ampoule (at least in my country Malaysia) that doesn't do much for the skin, so if you have terrible fungal acne and can't find other cheaper propolis products or can't go for skinfood essence or bywishtrend prophenol, or you want that nice propolis glow after applying the ampoule, then go for this one by cosrx. Otherwise, save your money and buy something else.
I've been using this for about a month now but I don't think it has any effect on my face. It just adds on to my oiliness and I don't think it moisturizes my face. I was really expecting a lot from this because it's a well-known brand aside it's fungal-acne safe category. I'll stop using this once my new product comes.
