The brand Missha:
While I was doing more research on Missha, I realized that this Korean cosmetic brvà was quite specialized in dupes of popular beauty products.
They’re definitely not counterfeits but you can clearly see that some of the products are very inspired by other products. Their Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule is supposed to lớn be a dupe of the Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair. Their eye cream MISA Geum Sul Vitalizing Eye Cream is apparently very similar to lớn the Sisleÿa eye cream by Sisley (I’m not sure about this last one, but FYI, I use it at the moment, & it’s very nice & rich!) (my Reviews is here).
At first, I felt like Missha didn’t really have a very harmonious identity as a brand. And this impression was confirmed when I went to Korea & was able to visit one of their shops. It definitely looked lượt thích a multi-br& store in there. But it wasn’t, it was a 100% Missha shop. The different products ranges had just nothing in common. I feel like they recently tried to change that because they target an international clientele now, và this lachồng of harmony is quite disconcerting for customers.
Just take a look at their US trang web that doesn’t have the new packaging yet & you’ll see what I’m talking about! From what I can tell, they have sầu several ranges of skincare:– Time Revolution, their classic anti-age range (where you can find the First Treatment Essence Intensive),– Super Aqua, their moisturizing range,– Misa, more traditional và premium (the packaging look like a mix of Sulwhasoo and The History Of Whoo, two Korean luxury brands),– Near Skin, their range of dermo-cosmetics, more “medical” looking,– and their range for men.
They definitely look like five sầu different skincare brands! But despite this disparity, Missha still deserves to lớn be mentioned because you can find hidden gems in these diverse ranges! And it’s totally the case with the Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence Intensive.
I already talked a bit about it in my article on essences, this is a First Essence, which preps the skin lớn receive sầu the other products you apply on top. In its formula, it includes a good concentration, 80%, of Saccharomyces (that’s yeast, I spoke about it in my Focus on fermented ingredients) which help khổng lồ smooth skin texture while also bringing a lot of radiance to the complexion. They are worshiped in Asia because they’re also lightening (but more in a sense of brightening, not whitening).
Compared to lớn other yeast-based First Essences I tried, the Missha First Essence Intensive Essence is probably the most moisturizing of all. But, looking closer, I feel that this particular essence of Missha is no longer available everywhere. The new version is the Intensive Moist, even more focused on hydration (it contains a little bit of dimethicone, which I try lớn avoid because my skin doesn’t lượt thích it very much) (but to lớn be honest, this silicone is really not very high up in the ingredient menu, so I don’t think it would cause a big issue on my skin).
Here is the complete danh mục of ingredients for the Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence Intensive:Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bifidomain authority Ferment Lysate, Propanediol, Niacinamide, Polyquaternium-51, Ulmus Davidiamãng cầu Root Extract, Betaine, Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract, Pirper Methysticum Leaf/Root/Stem Extract, Beta vulgaris (Beet) Root extract, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Cassia Alata Leaf Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Pentylene Glycol, Water, Trehađại bại, Disodium EDTA, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Raffinose, Tromethamine, Acetic Acid, Lactic Acid, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Caprytyl Glycol, Hexapeptide-9 Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate
There are a lot of interesting ingredients in this formula: the saccharomyces as explained above, but also a probiotic (the Bifidomain authority Ferment Lysate) which is anti-oxidant & moisturizing, niacinamide (a super-star ingredient which I spoke in details on my blog), hyaluronic acid (Sodium Hyaluronate), but also many plants extracts with brightening effects.
I used the Missha Time Revolution Essence Intensive Essence for several months in my evening skincare routine, after my Biologique Recherbịt Lotion P50W. I applied it directly with the fingertips, dabbing the skin gently (you can use a cotton pad if you prefer but I think it wastes too much product). It’s very liquid và has a fresh but very subtle scent.
Regarding the results on my skin, it’s difficult to be certain of its direct benefits on my skin’s radiance (mainly because I use a lot of other active ingredients lượt thích acids and retinol, which are svào glow givers), but I think it helps and I really lượt thích the moisturizing feeling it gives me.
It’s a very nice step in my routine and when I stopped using it (mostly when I was traveling), I saw the difference on my skin. My skin definitely likes this Missha essence!
