Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Borabit Ampoule
Bought for: P1,600/50ml
Bought from: Althea Korea
I couldn't stop watching YAMD (You Are My Destiny) episode by episode but then again, I remember I've been slacking off the past few months and so I have to make up by writing and posting all drafted blogs and un-uploaded pictures. Here's another product review that's over due. I've accidentally deleted the initial pictures I took for this product so I had to retake and upload just by now. This is one of the items I got during my Althea Haul last December together with the Laneige Clear C Advance Effector Ex if you saw my Instagram story. This is another cult-fave in the Korean Beauty scene and I got it for 30% off in the website since I bought it together with an essence also from the same brand.
Get that dewy,supple and clear complexion with Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Borabit Ampoule. Its key ingredient Bifida Ferment Lysate is a fermented yeast that visibly reduces signs of aging and improves skin elasticity. This anti-aging serum is often compared to Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair as its less expensive dupe. It is gentle enough for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin.
I know anyone would agree if I say that the packaging is really pretty. I mean look at that purple packaging! It comes in a cardboard box and a manual inside. It has a dropper that dispenses product easily and allows you to control the amount to use every application. The rubber attracts dust and dirt but you can just simply wipe it clean with some wet wipes. The overall packaging is really beautiful and you can place it on the front line of your vanity without any problem. The only downside is that it's not very travel-friendly as it's made of glass so it would break any moment.
Unlike other Korean products, I'm surprised that it has English translation so I'm getting an idea what I'm putting on my skin without having to utilize Google.
SCENT, TEXTURE AND EASE OF APPLICATION
It has a mild scent and the ampule is light brown in color. I don't know if it's just me but it seems to oxidize gradually, turning to a deeper brown in shade. Despite that, it still performs well. Texture is soft like what you would expect with ampules and consistency is quite thin and runny but not to the point that it's dripping.
Since this is an anti-aging product, I kind of expect that it will be a little heavy on the skin. It feels a little sticky once applied but fades eventually after a few minutes. It warms up the skin so it's a bit annoying to apply during summer but I think if your skin is leaning more towards dry, this will provide just enough hydration. Because I have oily skin, I only limit application during night time, probably about every other day because it makes my pores produce so much oil.
This is a highly concentrated ampule and is said to be a great dupe for the ever-popular Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum with about half the price I haven't tried the latter so I couldn't compare but it must be good for everyone's raving about it. Missha's ingredient list took me forever to read and I'm not very good at distinguishing what's unique about each and every ingredients but combined together works to make skin sleek, firm, even and healthy. The key ingredients though are the four (4) types of Ferment Lactobacillus Complex that contains Purple Energy Lactobacillus Ferment ingredients.
I won't pretend I know and understand what they are but doing a quick search enlightens me. They work to repair, prevent wrinkles and lighten skin. I am still in my early 20s so I don't have that much fine lines to worry about. Nonetheless, prevention is better than cure. It's best to combat early signs of aging. Using it religiously, I noticed my skin plumping up and skin's softer and smoother. Also, it really is hydrating, makes skin more elastic and boost skin's radiance overtime. Whenever I use it at night, my skin has that morning glow.
Despite the slightly thick texture, it did not clog my skin and cause breakouts. A drop is sufficient to moisturize the face and neck area so I think it's worth the price tag after all. I'll keep using it to keep my skin hydrated but I'm still thinking of whether or not I'd repurchase since it's going to be making a dent on my pocket. If you have the budget, go and splurge! It works well in restoring skin's vitality and gives it a youthful glow.
