Curtain Call: MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Rx

Okay, the posts have slowed down due to me getting through with pretty much all the sheet masks I had on hand. They are a one-time use beauty product, so I was able to go through a lot of those in a short amount of time. There will be more sheet mask reviews here and there but nothing like how it’s been for the past few months. Today’s post is a Curtain Call entry. It’s been a long time since I did one and I just finished this up today, so I thought it’d be fitting to blog about it. Here’s my review on the MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Rx.

MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Rx

Stated on the back of the bottle:


DIRECTIONS: At the first step of skincare, take an
appropriate amount on cotton pad or into the palm of the hand.
Apply over face and pat lightly for absorption.

What I love about this product? The frosted glass bottle with mirror cap is absolutely elegantly beautiful. As for the product itself, it is so light on my face and it doesn’t have a scent to me. It feels like water almost when it dries on my face. It is moisturizing still but it feels like there’s nothing at all on my face, which I LOVE. No greasiness, no hint of having anything on my face. If there’s a scent it’s basically non-existent to me, which is another thing I love. I dislike strong scents and can be particular about the kind of scents I like. It is clear and the consistency of it is it’s just as viscous as water. I use this twice a day at least, during my AM and PM skincare routine. I distinctly remember noticing my face is glowing even before using this for an entire week. I couldn’t believe it. I use this just as described in the directions, as the first step of skincare after cleansing my face. I did start off with using a small cotton ball but decided that I actually like tapping it onto my face more. I just tilt the bottle slightly and quickly so that a drop or two squirts out onto my forehead and use my pointing and middle finger to tap it all over my face. I do this several times until I covered my entire face. I let it dry before proceeding to the next step of my skincare routine. I have tried another MISSHA FTE but I like both the formulation and scent of this one better. I also feel like the brightening effect is more prominent with this one than the other one, so this is THE HG item for me in the FTE category.

What I don’t like about this product? It should be nothing but MISSHA loves reformulating their products. I got this from TJMaxx and at the time I got this they just released an updated version of this (the 5th generation of this product that is available on their site right now). So while I KNOW that this version works for me, I can’t say that their current or future formulations of this would work for me. I do have a back-up bottle of this that I got on clearance from TJMaxx 2 weeks after I got the first bottle (that I just finished). I’ll be using it after I finish up the next 2 toners I have lined up, which can take a while as this 150 ml / 5.07 fl oz bottle lasted me for about 6 months. They do have sales often so I would avoid paying full-price for this to make it worth even more to you.
