What is it?
If you know Korean beauty product, you probably already know what an essence is. But if you are new to Kbeauty it can be quite overwhelming just getting to understand what everything is.
So, this product is an essence.
And what is an essence?
They are mainly products that has the goal of enriching your skin and preparing for the next steps (a little like a toner) but they are very fluent and not as thick as a toner (Korean toner that is). They should be your first step after toner and pat (or use a cotton pad) and apply all over your face

What is fermented skincare?
Fermentation is actually a natural process where active ingredients are broken down into smaller parts so that their nutrients and minerals can be absorbed into the skin. The ingredients become richer in antioxidants vitamins and amino acids. You heard it a lot of times when it comes to food. Kimchi, kombucha, salami, sauerkraut or Swedish filmjölk is fermented products. And we all know the benefits for your stomach and intestines when eating fermented products. So, keep that up.
But the process of fermentation is also very good for your skin. Its benefits for the skin is;

My thoughts on Missha time revolution first treatment essence
I love this, I think it is an amazing product and my skin loves it too. It really helped my skin to clear up. Before I started with Kbeauty my skin was patchy, red and super dry. It is still super dry, but the patchiness and the redness has reduced a lot. This was one of the first treatments I tried, and I still use it.
I like that packaging, it comes in a frosted glass bottle and a silvery plastic lid. the essence is very liquid but the packaging makes it easy not getting too much product out. I always add some directly too my face, and then pat it in (don’t want to waste any of the product in a cotton pad). It has no strong smell, but there is some scent to it.
After applying it my skin feels oxidized, cool and fresh. It doesn’t do much on my dry skin when it comes to moisture, but then again, I don’t use this product for its moisturizing purposes, instead I layer on product that are better suited for that.
So what it did to my skin was simply even my skin tone. I do use a lot of products for this purpose but this was one of my first products for getting a more even skin tone.
This is really one of my favorite products, though I will absolutely try others, but it is a really amazing product and I can absolutely recommend it.
I give this product 6,5/7
