I saved the best product for this batch of reviews for last! Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Missha’s Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence!
I have been using this product twice a day since December and I can now confidently write a review about it! But first, why do we need essences and what exactly are they?
Essence is an integral step in typical skincare routines of Korean women. The primary goal of an essence above all else, is to hydrate. Alicia always notes that our skin is like a sponge—when wet, it becomes more absorbent. Using an essence drenches the skin with moisture allowing for better absorption of subsequent products. Also, like a sponge, when it’s wet and it’s squeezed, the surface doesn’t crack unlike a brittle, dry sponge. In the same way, when skin is well hydrated, it is healthier, stronger and functions better. Essences help your sponge-like skin fill up with necessary moisture for better skin health and better product absorption. –Peach and Lily
The product itself is very much liquid. It’s very runny and has a faint yeast smell to it. Personally, I’m not a fan of the smell but it’s faint enough that you won’t even smell it except if you have a sensitive nose. To apply it, I put into my hands a few drops and rub it all over my face and neck area. Upon application, you’ll immediately feel your skin being moisturized. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple! <3
One of the biggest differences I have noticed in my skin since I have used this is the fact that I don’t get oil build ups anymore. (If your skin isn’t well moisturized, you’ll get oil build ups.) I can actually go a day without powdering my face and even leave the house without any make-up at all. My pores have also decreased its size. And, I also get this natural glow which I love. Overall, my skin now looks rejuvenated, brighter and better!
Since I am an avid fan of Korean skincare, a friend asked me more about it and this product was included in my recommendations. She has acne prone skin with acne marks. After a month of using this product, of course alongside different products, her skin has made incredible improvements. Her skin no longer has redness from acne plus, her acne seems to be drying out too! As for myself, I have a normal-combination skin and aside from the pores getting visibly smaller, I can also see that my skin looks and feels better.
Would I recommend you to buy it? Definitely! I don’t even know if my review is written well enough for you to be convinced but believe me when I say this product is legit. It might be a bit costly but what you’re getting in exchange is worth it. You can see the improvements on your skin after a month of continuous use! Go ahead and please buy this product! It’s never a mistake to invest in your skin. 😀
This has only been the new product in my skincare regimen and this review is based on personal experience. It may or may not be because of this product but I believe it’s because of it.
