Best of Missha Skin Care Routine ProductReview by Kews
What's your overall rating?
I waited couple months before writing this review. I want to see if the product works the same way as SK-II Essence Treatment. After two months of using this product twice a day, I agree with the rest of the reviews that it gives the same result without breaking your bank. This product is my number one must have for Missha Skin Care Routine. (Posted on 10/9/2016)
Amazing, simply amazing product!Review by Elizabeth
What's your overall rating?
I've used Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence as a first after-cleansing step, and adore the result.
I just finished my second bottle, the Essence has become indispensable to me, it feels incredible on skin (I apply it right after cleansing), it seems to make the products that come absorb and perform better, my skin is drinks this stuff up. There's a lot of great ingredients, fermented yeast that Missha mentions is chock-full of Vitamin B. Niacinamide is also very high on the ingredient list, which is another form of Vitamin B and a major anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and it enhances the absorption of ceramides in human skin and improves the epidermal barrier. I put mine in a portable spray so I can refresh and mist throughout the day.
Even my coworkers compliment me on how my skin glows! (Posted on 9/25/2016)

Different FormulationReview by natasha
What's your overall rating?
I previously used this toner under the name " The First Treatment Essence Zyosis". The old formula did everything it claimed to my skin felt brighter and more tight and I recommended the product to so many people. The new formulation "intensive" felt a bit different on my face, it made me break out while using it. I do have slightly sensitive skin so I would recommend researching the ingredients.
All in all a great brand, but I would recommend checking out the ingredients. (Posted on 8/26/2016)
Can I live without it? Better question: do I want to live without it?Review by Kyra
What's your overall rating?
I was suffering from breakouts after moving to a humid climate from a dry climate, and anti-acne products were only making the problem worse. I decided to give this a try, and found it was the one thing my routine was missing. It cleared up my skin within a week, and made my skin look healthy and my complexion more even. Every once in a while I get lazy and leave this out of my routine for a while, and I notice the loss of radiance. I guess I’m hooked! :) (Posted on 8/6/2016)
Love this product!! Great essence! Review by RE
What's your overall rating?
I started using FTE about a month ago and it has really made the difference in my skin. As I have oily skin, this product has really helped with oil control and does not break me out. It has also started to clear up some acne scars I had. My face feels plump and healthy!

Instead of putting the product in a cotton pad, I just put some on my hand and pat down to my skin for better absorption.

Definitely will keep using this product! Thanks Missha! (Posted on 8/5/2016)
Use Essence Everyday!Review by Esmeralda
What's your overall rating?
Essence helps to prep my skin for my ampoule and snail lotion. You can feel the different texture it gives your skin immediately on first use. I use it everyday and night ––sometimes alone if I forget to use my ampoule or face cream. (Posted on 8/5/2016)
Holy Grail Product!Review by Shannon
What's your overall rating?
This is probably my favorite essence ever! I love the feel and effects of the FTE. That it features such a large amount of fermented yeast and niacinamide makes it such a pleasure to use, with immediate brightening results. It is also a more affordable dupe for the highly sought out and expensive SK-II Essence. I love this product and 100% recommend! (Posted on 8/2/2016)
I need it everdayReview by IVA

So happy to know this product.

Very good facial treatment essence with affordable price.

My face become hydrated, looks good and good day by day.. No wonder if many people said this is like a miracle water.

Love it..!!!! I will always use this facial treatment essence. Thanks Missha..!!!! (Posted on 7/29/2016)
Super Effective!Review by Jessica
What's your overall rating?
I have used both the Clear Toner and the First Treatment Essence, and even though I've seen people say that the FTE can be used in lieu of toner, I feel that the two are best used together. The Clear Toner definitely feels more like a cleansing agent, while the First Treatment Essence actually feels like a "treatment", meaning I could still feel it on my skin after applying it with a cotton pad.

I pretty much always suffer from hormonal acne right around that time of the month, in the form of one huge blemish that comes to a head, and I noticed one starting to form a few days ago. However, after using the FTE, I could see a drastic reduction in inflammation, and the pimple scabbed before it could even become a whitehead. Seeing as how the FTE is the only recent change I have made to my skincare routine, I can only attribute this magic to its effectiveness! (Posted on 7/13/2016)
Does wonders for my skinReview by A
What's your overall rating?
This essence calms the redness on my skin. It helps brighten my skin and makes it feel soft and smooth. Since I have acne prone skin, this does NOT break me out, which is great. I also read reviews that this helps lightens acne scars, so I am hoping if I use this longer I will see a change in my scars. (Posted on 6/25/2016)
Hydrating, better than SK-IIReview by RJ
What's your overall rating?
I was gifted SK-II's essence and I tried it out for over a month. I didn't notice any type of changes on my face that the brand claims to make, so I decided to buy Missha's essence..

Missha's directions is to apply the essence on a cotton pad and swipe all over your face. I do it the other way by pouring a few drops into my palm, rub my hands together, and then lightly press my neck and face.

You really don't need a lot for your face to be fully hydrated. For my neck I use 5 drops, and for my face I use 5-7 drops of essence.

Unlike SK-II's essence, this one is slightly thicker. Not in terms of being as thick as an ampoule or serum, but it's just slightly thicker.

After pressing on the essence, my face is hydrated and has a certain *glow*.

If it helps for future buyers, I have acne-prone and oily-combination(most times oily) skin. (Posted on 5/2/2016)
Great productReview by Van
What's your overall rating?
I have been using this essence for about 1 month and I definitely see the dramatic change on my skin. My skin gets softener, and brightener. You can see the full benefit of this product when combine with the Time Revolution Serum. They work well together. I haven't tried the SKII yet but I think the price does not worth it. Why not using this product with the quality is almost the same and price is way cheaper? Definitely purchase this product again. Thanks MISSHA .... (Posted on 4/30/2016)
I used it 2x dailyReview by Jojo
What's your overall rating?
This first treatment essence seems to be working well for me. It is light and absorbs well especially during the cooler winter months. At first it feels a little bit sticky as I tap it into my face with bare hands but it absorbs quickly and it feels soft and smooth with absolutely no more stickiness. But I must say, I do switch up my essences depending on the weather. I feel that in the summer I will opt to use another essence that is not sticky as the humid summers may be an issue with application. It depends on where you live and how your face reacts. My skin is oily yet dehydrated - combination skin so when weather is humid, al ot of products just sit on my face without being absorbed as well. This is definitely working well for me during these cooler months though! (Posted on 2/24/2016)

Good productReview by SR
What's your overall rating?
I did not think this product would work, but I have been using it twice a day for over a month and I have noticed differences in the brightness of my skin and overall moisture; however I did not see a difference in pore size unlike what others have written on their reviews. Nonetheless, it is a good product. (Posted on 2/19/2016)

Must have for dry skinReview by Kathleen
What's your overall rating?
I've been struggling to find something to help my dry flakey winter skin. This was my answer. I noticed the difference right away upon the first use. The skin feels so clean, soft, and hydrated. A little bit goes a long way, so even though its a bit pricier, it will last a long time. (Posted on 1/24/2016)

I ordered this product awhile ago, and it does work very well to moisturize and smooth out the skin. (Posted on 1/17/2016)
Can't live without it! Review by Mina
What's your overall rating?
I tried this 6 months ago to see what all the fuss is about. I use it day and night and sometimes use it as a mask with cotton pads. This definitely helps maintain the youthfulness of my 35 year old skin and keeps it free from wrinkles and blemishes. At first, I felt I didn't see much results in the beginning but I went on vacation for a week and forgot my bottle and I immediately noticed my skin is not as plump and my hormonal acne came back. I'm on my third bottle and this has become a skin staple, along with double cleansing and my hyaluronic acid moisturizer :) (Posted on 1/17/2016)
