Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule Review

Sunday, February 15, 2015

It's long past due that I should be introducing you to one of my favourite skin care products of all time. It's the Missha Time Revolution New Science Activator Ampoule. You may have heard a lot about it when it first came out. Marked as a dupe of the very popular Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair ampoule, Missha showcased their talent in being able to replicate expensive skincare products with  something that is just as good but at a fraction of the price. 

You can also use this product in conjunction with the Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence (the one that is a dupe for the SKII Facial Treatment Essence). I've done that before. I did see a slightly better result doing that than using the Night Repair alone. However, this might just be that the The First Treatment Essence is a really good product as well. 

Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair: $92 USD ( $105CDN) - 50mL (1.7 oz)

VS.

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair New Science Activator Ampoule: $49 USD ($49.99CDN) - 50mL (1.7oz)

Although price is important, what matters most is how the product actually performs. I've never used the Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair before so I can only tell you how the Missha Night Repair works for me.



CLAIMS
" The Ampoule energizes, repairs, and restores elasticity. It also provides wrinkle repairing and whitening benefits. 

Contains Fermented Bifida, Lactobacillus, and Lactococcus for improved, healthier skin. Bifida Ferment strengthens skin's barrier to prevent damage from harmful environmental factors. Lactobacillus Ferment contains Peptide and Vitamin B12 for improved, healthy skin condition. Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate has protective and antioxidant properties to moisturize and improve skin barrier. "

Looking at the claims, we can see that this product basically aims to repair your skin, whether it is anti-aging and healing the skin.


PRODUCT





Missha Night Repair comes in a colourful class bottle with a glass dropper - very similar to the Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair. The dropper is really nice as it gives me exactly how much product I want to dispense. Although the bottle is opaque, you can still how much product is left. 




The product itself is a brownish liquid. It doesn't have a smell and it's not sticky at all.  When I first saw the product, I had my doubts. It looked so thin that I didn't think it would do anything for my skin. 




PERFORMANCE
Despite it's relatively thin consistency, the Missha Night Repair is actually really moisturizing.  I usually dispense half the amount in the dropper and apply it to my face during the morning and night.  I can honestly feel the difference in my skin the next day. My skin feels moisturized, soft and supple - as if I've injected life back into it.  It is easy to massage onto the face and absorbs after a few seconds. I have no trouble applying other skincare or makeup on top. 

After using the product consistently for a couple of month, I do feel like some of my acne scars have faded by a little bit and my skin looks clearer. 

As a make up and skin care lover, I always gravitate towards new products but I also always come back to this one. I've repurchased Missha Time Revolution Night Repar three or four times now and will continue to do so in the future. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. 

Thanks for reading!
