[REVIEW] MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION NIGHT REPAIR PROBIO AMPOULE

We all know how much I love Jolse and how incredible their deals are. I’ve been eying on this specific product since it released but wasn’t sure when I was going to buy it. Jolse kindly sent this product in exchange for a review and let me just say, this product really surprised me in a way where I didn’t expect it to. Sometimes products just don’t meet our expectations, here’s why!

My thoughts/ rant

There are a lot of fantastic ingredients such as niacinamide, fruit&veggie extracts, squalane, panthenol, Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E, Ceramide and etc. I blindly chose this product to review for you all because I was very curious to know more about this line thus I wanted to see if I could find a dupe for any of the anti-aging high-end products I already own. I clearly did not read the ingredients list prior to choosing this so that was on me but I am curious to know how this would work on my skin.

Luckily, I did not break out or had any negative reactions to using this. That being said, as much as I wanted for this to work for me, it was a very meh kind of product. I don’t care if whether I had it in my routine or not. I saw a lot of positive reviews on this and was so excited to try it out but I’m not sure if these people were are reviewing the products are experiencing placebo effects or not because I too have experienced that with other products in the past. Regardless of the reason, I definitely wouldn’t repurchase this.

Rant: I’m not a fan when companies throw some crazy claims to upsell a product. First of all, that’s great that you have all these incredible claims of what the product can do, however, that being said, don’t say can be used all skin types/sensitive skin user-friendly because there are quite a few questionable ingredients in this product that are potential skin irritants.

  • Texture: 3/5 – It has a thick consistency to it but it breaks down nicely into the skin. The only thing I wasn’t too crazy about was the sheen in left behind on my skin. This is definitely more of an evening skincare product than morning because you will see a residue left behind on your face when using this. I would say the texture resembles a jelly sheet mask essence in a way, the consistency really reminds me of that.
  • Scent: 3/5 – I would say the scent is quite pleasant but that’s because there was a sneaky blend of essential oils in it, minus 2 points because of them and why they’re so high in the formulation. Preferably, I would have been okay if it was lower in the ingredients or even better, none. But it is what it is, my friends. I think what bothered me so much was that sensitive skin claim and seeing the ingredients list. Ideally, brands that market to sensitive skin types really needs to consider going fragrance-free all together.
  • Price: 4/5 – Pricing is okay, there’s a lot of product in here so you have a lot to work with.
  • Performance: 3/5 – Although this product was able to provide my skin hydration + nutrition, I wasn’t wowed by this and I’m also not convinced that it has effective anti-aging ingredients. Whereas the Klairs Midnight Blue Youth drops were way more effective and gave me faster results than this. Mind you, I’ve been using this for over 3 months now and the Klairs? only a month so the results and time usage speak for themself. Anyway, wasn’t too crazy about it. It’s not a bad product but if you’re curious about it, wait for a sale then get it. Jolse often has amazing sales between 20%-70% off.
  • Packaging: 3/5 – It’s so pretty! I was convinced that I had to get it because Missha is very well known for their time revolution line, especially for their first treatment essence that a lot of people cannot get enough of. To be quite frank with you, I wasn’t wowed by that product when I first used it but I will revisit it again because I do have a fresh bottle in my stash so stay tuned for a review on that. The dropper is kind of bad, it doesn’t always grab enough or any product so that really sucks.

PRODUCT FLOPS: CHAPTER 2

Hey hey, this is probably the most active I have been on my blog and I really just wanted to stretch this series because there are quite a few products where I just did not like and I really wanted to share with you all my thoughts and opinions on them.

Disclaimer: What may have or may have not worked out for me doesn’t mean it will apply the same for you. Everyone’s skincare type is different. These are my personal experiences with these products.

The first bb cream I have ever tried!!
At the age of 17, I started getting more familiar with makeup and experimenting with different brands and products. Bb creams were a huge deal back then because they weren’t just for post surgery folks but they are the future of foundation because they are multi-function and provide anti-aging, whitening and buildable/high coverage. Bb creams may vary in texture and coverage but this one was very thick and has medium coverage. I loved this bb cream for my early stages of practicing with makeup. This bb cream had literally ONE shade and it’s most comparable to the Missha M Perfect Cover Bb cream in shade #21 but it has a really heavy grey undertone to it. I didn’t appreciate that it clung onto my dry patches and made my skin look aged especially around my smile lines and forehead. Maybe this bb cream is meant for oily skin users? Not sure but this was a flop for me and I don’t know why I repurchased this thing 3-4 times.

INC.redible You Glow Girl in Cosmic Blur

This product came out before the Colourpop Jelly shadows and I thought this idea was brilliant but at the same time, it was too good to be true. Anyone who has followed me on Instagram long enough would know that I am all about that holographic, duo-chrome, unicorn look. This is gorgeous when you first apply it and you can layer it pretty well. My issue with this is that if you accidentally wipe or touch your face, the highlight is GONE. I highly doubt this is going to be blendable with other shadows because it’s consistency alone. The concept is great, the formula definitely could be revamped and improved on. Overall, it is a fun product to play around with to take some cool photos with but it’s not meant for long wear use.

2501224 Shiseido Light Bulb Foundation in 774 Light Beige

I had extremely high hopes for this foundation but it just did not work out in the end. The shade match was quite accurate because this was only available online to purchase so I kind of just eyeballed my shade and hoped for the best. The one thing I appreciated about this foundation was that it never oxidized on me. This foundation has such a DENSE, thick and oily texture to it. Not something I would like in a foundation. It really weighed my face down and I felt extremely uncomfortable with it on. It’s the exact feeling I get when my skin is congested from a hot, humid day. The odd thing was my face didn’t oily regardless the fact my face felt weighed down.. it looked quite dewy and healthy but I just did not like it’s heavy texture. If they had a lighter formula for this, I would have loved it.

p425265-av-03-lhero Huda Beauty Winter Solstice Palette

I honestly purchased this palette for the blue-lavender shade aka “arctic glow” but it just didn’t work out. It looked really bad on my skin and it looked like a giant blue strip on my cheek even if I gradually layered it and took my time to blend it. Winter Rose and Northern Lights were okay but I was hoping they would be more buildable. Frosted Kiss (peachy shade) was a cream formula. I personally don’t really like cream highlighters because they don’t apply well and you have to work really hard to blend it in the skin. I prefer pressed powder highlighters because they’re not as messy and difficult to work with.

That’s it for this chapter, friends. Tune until next time for chapter 3 on Product Flops!
Have a good night~
