Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule Review:
Well.. There was a time in my life when my skin got rough and dull. SO MUCH. There were no changes in the skincare products I used, neither my habits. The only change that happened that time was, the environment I lived. I used to live in a cool city, but then I had to move to a higher-temperature, beach-near city. Moreover, I had to work in the office, which caused my skin to contact to air conditioner nine hours a day.
So, I guess my skin got shocked. It got rough, and there were skin flakes on my cheek. Then I decided to look for a more-moisturizing skincare products immediately, or else my skin would be worse.

Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule Review:
Why did I choose SECRET KEY Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule? First, my previous experiences with Secret Key product (its gel cream, essence, first essence, and cream) were all satisfying. They really did what they claimed.
Second, based on the name ‘ampoule’, it’s supposed to be more concentrated than serums or essences, isn’t it? A more effective one would be better.
Third, in my personal experiences, Secret Key always launches affordable products – around $15 – $20 that gives optimal effects compared to any other brands around that price.
Secret Key Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule came in a sturdy, quite-heavy, glass-like packaging. The jar itself is brown, probably to prevent direct contact with sunlight. There’s only minimal information about the product on the jar only product’s claim and volume. This ampoule uses a pipette as the applicator, most likely to keep the product’s hygiene.
There’s a box as the secondary packaging which contains information about the product claim, ingredients, volume, and user guide. Unfortunately, the information is all in Korean language, so I have to translate them manually with (so much) help of Google.
SECRET KEY Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule itself has a quite viscous texture; it’s hardly stream down your hand. It also has transparent color. A little of ampoule really goes a long way.
As a comparison, I have a quite small-sized Asian face, so approximately one pipette-push is enough for my face and neck. Until now, I’ve been using this for 7 months and the volume is still around one-half centimeter-tall left. I guess that’s related with its viscous texture.
Turns out that my addiction to Secret Key is right. Combined with my moisturizer SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Cream, my skin got so much better. After approximately one-month usage, it became moist and elastic, even better than before.
I’d say that SECRET KEY Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule is a magical product – you’ll see the difference after a single use. Use this before a long, enough sleep, and your skin will feel more supple and smooth the next morning. However, this effect is only temporary. You’ll have to use this regularly to get a permanent supple skin, just like I do to my skin.
For further review, I’m gonna list the ingredients’ claim on the Secret Key website:
“Grapes contain vitamin A, B, C, D for effective skin care and enhanced skin resilience”
‘enhance skin resilience’? I’d say so. My skin feels resilient when I wake up the next morning after using this product. But I don’t see the continuous effect if I missed my skincare routine for some days.
Tomatoes contain various vitamins and minerals control in-body water to help making skin lively and clear.
Vitamin B group prevent dry and rough skin, E group increase skin resilience
Yes, it prevents dry skin and increases skin resilience. About skin liveliness and clearness, I don’t think a single use could do this.
“Green tea contains catechin to tighten and soothe tired skin, tannin to supply and absorb moisture”
Again, this product does a lot of moisturizing effect. However, I don’t agree about ‘tighten’.
However, SECRET KEY Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule disappoints me more than other Secret Key products. As you can see in the ingredients list, it contains alcohol (ethanol) and methylparaben. Secret Key usually doesn’t add parabens to its product that it even claims 7-Free Systems or even 10-Free Systems in some lines, including Paraben-free.
I don’t know why there’re only 4-Free Systems in this product, and paraben-free just doesn’t included ☹ For me myself, the contents of parabens and alcohol is quite a concern. I could tolerate alcohol in some products, but I don’t think so with parabens.
As a conclusion, I don’t think I’d buy SECRET KEY Multi Cell Night Repair Ampoule again. This product works splendidly for me though, but I don’t like putting those alcohol-paraben duo on my skin at once. However, this product may be very suitable for you who doesn’t mind any alcohol and paraben contents in ingredient list, since its effect is wonderful and it does what it claims too!
