Could it be? Is this really a K-beauty dupe for my beloved (and expensive) Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum? I had read multiple claims that the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule is comparable to ANR because they both have the active ingredient Lactobacillus ferment. This acts as a skin softener, and was also shown to be therapeutically effective in the treatment of atopic dermatitis. I used the Estee Lauder ANR for 3 years, so I had to put Missha Time Revolution to the test.
I decided to purchase the Missha Time Revolution Best Seller Special Set because I also wanted to try The First Intensive Moist Treatment Essence. (It’s wayyyy cheaper to buy the set! A steal!) I’ve been using both the ampoule and essence consistently for the last 2 months.
I am loving the whole set! In fact, The First Treatment Essence has completely replaced my favorite Cosrx Galactomyces 95 Essence. My skin feels softer, plumper, and looks much brighter. I especially love soaking White Rabbit Cotton Pads in the essence and using it as a 5-minute face pack.
As for the ampoule, it is very similar to ANR. The consistency is almost identical, although the Missha is slightly thinner and easier to spread. Most importantly, it reminded me of why I was so loyal to ANR. I have sensitive combination skin, and I sometimes get too oily or too dry or too sensitive. However, I haven’t had those problems since using this ampoule. My skin looks and feels AMAZING. It’s soft, bright, and balanced. Best of all, I don’t have to pay $92 a bottle for these results!
Are you a loyal Estee Lauder ANR user? Would you try this cheaper K-beauty dupe?
