My thoughts on Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence
Always when it comes to types of products that aren’t super common (in my part of the world). It is really common not knowing exactly when to use a certain product in a skincare routine. If you use the Korean method, that is layering products in many steps. It is not always easy knowing when to add a product. In Europe the regular skincare routine is cleansing, toning and moisturizing. But when looking at the Korean routine there are a bunch more steps to think about. And since I follow that routine I always end up looking at the thickness of my product to know when to add them. In this case I use it sometimes before toner and sometimes after toner, but always before serums. So I always end up using this as a first or a second step.
It comes in a beautiful glass bottle which is just lovely. I really like the packaging of this one. The opening of the bottle is just right so you don’t get too much product out at once. I am not one of those persons who always look for a beautiful packaging (like judging a book by its cover). But I really don’t get disappointed when I get a package that feels a little fancy.
The essence is a little thicker than the essence I am used to. That does not mean that its thick, it is still very liquid. Just that it has a thicker feeling to it.
Missha Time Revolution Artemisia Treatment Essence is light yellow and it is scented. The scent is not very strong so it is not a scent that bothers me.
As for when to place it, well either your first or your second step, depending on the thickness of the rest of your skincare products. So I usually end up using this as a second step and it absorbs really fast into my skin. If you are looking for one type of product to add to your routine this is an easy step since essences almost always are very liquid and you don’t need to wait long between your steps.
Mugwort is a really great ingredient to look for if you are looking for an ingredient to calm your skin down (acne) or if you need an extra layer of hydration.
So how did it work for me. Ever since I started my Korean skincare journey I have use brightening products on my skin. Simply because that is my main concern. Hyperpigmentation and redness. When I first started I saw a huge difference on my skin but of course you come to that time where there is not so much more to do and the difference isn’t that obvious any longer. So I simply check how a product act on my skin. And the benefits of the ingredients. I will never stop using this type of product since I find them super easy to use and is still a great way to get that little extra out of your skincare routine.
When I tried the Missha starting treatment essence I saw a huge difference in my skins tone so I am really not going to stop using this type of product. If you are new to brightening products you might see a really big difference and I do recommend you to try it.
This essence main ingredient is Mugwort which is a great ingredient for a lot of different skin types. Its perfect for calming the skin down if you are acne prone. It is great for adding another layer of moisture if you have a dry skin type and it is also great for sensitive skin. So really this is a win for everyone. If you don’t use an essence today this is really a great starting product. You get a huge amount of product for a good price.
I give this product 7/7
