In previous post I wrote about the 10 step Korean skincare routine , click here for post. The 5th step, the Essence is one of my favorite new skincare addition because of the positive impact on my skin. The Essence is the nucleus of the Korean skincare routine and it is what makes Korean skincare routine unique from all others.
WHAT IS MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION FIRST TREATMENT ESSENCE
Highly concentrated essential essence for the first step of skincare, to recover the balance and make skin healthy radiant by increasing the emotional level. It soothes, balances sebum level, hydrates, improves skin tone, firms and repairs wrinkles.
Fermented yeast Extract 80percent: A humectant that has healing and protecting qualities . It acts as a stabilizer for other compounds like enzymes that are found in skincare products . It promotes good skin conditions
Niacinamide – it is a skin smoother and a derivative of vitamin B. it can improve skin elasticity, tone and texture.
HOW TO USE IT
Double cleanse your skin. Pat dry .
Sweep toner gently across your face .
The Essence can be applied in two ways.
1 You can saturate your cotton pad with essence and swipe across your skin.
2 my preferred method , you pour a little in your palm, carefully rub it into your skin and pat it in until it is absorbed. Please be very careful with this method because the essence is in liquid form so take your time when you are applying it
Follow with your serums, moisturizer and always finish with a sunscreen
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
Been using this Essence since January 2016
Its smells slightly fermented but its not at all offensive or strong
All skin types and all ethnicities
It’s a beautiful breakable bottle . The bottle looks frosty , the best way to describe it would be like putting a bottle in the freezer and the look on the outside when it thaws ,its really pretty . You have to be really careful with the bottle because it is breakable so be careful how you carry it around or store it.
The minute I apply it my skin feels so hydrated.
It brightens the skin
My skin is soft to touch
It works great with any skincare routine and will even enhance the most basic routine
My treatment absorbs better therefore I see more positive results.
Packaging: It is breakable which makes it fragile when traveling and when at home I worry about storage space especially with my 2-year-old running around.
Overall this is definitely a step In my skincare routine that I plan to keep doing because I have seen a difference in the overall texture of my skin.
I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions or comments about this product or any other skin related question. Have a blessed week end .
