After trying out snail filtrate & bee venom in my skincare routine I had no reservations about giving fermented products a go. It was hardly intimidating given the weird things I've slapped onto my face in hopes of achieving healthier skin. I used up several foil packet samples of Missha's Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence without any bad reactions and probably would've bought this original formulation had RoseRoseShop not had a sale on the newer version, The First Treatment Essence Intensive. (So this review isn't a comparison between the two versions [sorry!] but only my impressions of the newer formula.)
Missha is a very popular Korean company for both skincare and cosmetics. The first Asian beauty product I ever tried out, a BB cream, was created by Missha and to this day I still use their makeup faithfully. Before joining the fermented club I'd never tried their skincare items beyond samples but I did regularly see many positive reviews online. Since I didn't want to drop big $$ on the most well-known yeast product (SK-II Facial Treatment Essence), I opted for Missha's more affordable dupe. The Time Revolution line also has serums, ampoules, toners, etc but I was only interested in the popular essence.
