Second chance review: missha time revolution night repair science activator borabit ampoule

" data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" />
After blogging for a couple of years và using Asian beauty products for a couple more before that, the vast majority of products I’ve sầu tried have become a big shiny blur. Generally only the really great and really dreadful products stand out. But sometimes, a sản phẩm sticks in my mind even when I didn’t love it the first time around. It’s kind of lượt thích that one person you sat next to lớn in that one class in college, whom you never really got khổng lồ know but always wondered about years later, imagining that they had hidden depths you’d missed out on exploring (or maybe got arrested in some spectacularly popcorny fashion).

For me, one of those products was Missha’s Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoulesigh. So when Missha’s US lăng xê team contacted me about trying some of the Missha products now available at Target, I figured it was time to lớn give the Longer Name Ampoule another shot.

You can totally use it during the day, by the way.

Notable ingredients: So as you can see, Missha Time Revolution Longer Name Ampoule is one of those products that uses the laundry các mục approach lớn ingredients, presenting a giant array of sexy-sounding botanical extracts and long science words. This ingredients các mục is freaking epic. It makes Sulwhasoo ingredients lists look lượt thích 23.5°N ingredients lists.

The positively Biblical ingredients các mục looks lượt thích it offers something for everybody. Ferments for the ferment lovers, which really sounds wrong but it is what it is. Niacinamide, retinol, và two vitamin C derivatives for the sciencey actives lovers. Sea water, extracts, & oils for those especially interested in “natural” ingredients. But here’s the thing about a ridiculously long ingredients danh sách, even one that does happen lớn be ridiculously good-looking: are any of those ingredients present in meaningful amounts? Or is it just a soup of trace amounts of everything?

The first time I tried this sản phẩm, I checked with Missha about the retinol percentage, which turned out to be 0.0004%, which tips the balance more towards “soup of trace amounts.” Oh.

Still, if we look farther up than the retinol in the middle of the menu, there is a promising focus on ferments in this sản phẩm. Fermentation is said khổng lồ render the antioxidants & various beneficial compounds in an ingredient more easily absorbed & used by the skin. A non-corporate Taiwanese study published in 2014 found several benefits to the use of fermentation compounds in skincare, particularly against hyperpigmentation. The study calls out lactobacillus & bifida ferments specifically. That’s a good thing, since the Night Repair Borabit Ampoule contains both.


Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule is a smooth amber liquid with a very faint spicy, extract-y scent và plenty of slip. It applies easily, no drag and no oily feel, và sinks in quickly. The fairly lightweight consistency makes it easy to lớn layer with other products, a major plus.

I used the Longer Name Ampoule at least once and usually twice a day for about six weeks, including a three-week isolation period where it was the only treatment hàng hóa I used on just my right eyelid. I lượt thích using my eyelids as isolation areas, since they display everything I want my skincare khổng lồ address, including but not limited to lớn spots and aging. Even better to lớn only use one eyelid. Then the differences, if there are any, become clear.

And I really, really wanted lớn see some differences! The first time I used the Night Repair ampoules (both the old one and then, immediately after finishing that one, the then-new Borabit reformulation), I got through two bottles without seeing much of a change. But for some reason, I really thought I might get a different outcome this time. I don’t know why. Same reason I’ve watched Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice multiple times, I guess. (Insanity.)

Yeah, not so much. Six plus weeks và no noticeable changes khổng lồ skin tone, texture, or elastiđô thị. I did find the product nicely hydrating on my poor neglected eyelid, but, khổng lồ quote my old Đánh Giá of this product:

There are about 1,000,000 other hydrating serums in the Korean market, 900,000 of them available at much lower prices.

So my original Reviews of this hàng hóa still stands, except I think I’d reduce the rating to lớn a 2.5/5. It caused me no problems, but it just didn’t bởi vì anything to impress me or set itself apart from the sea of anti-aging serums on the market.

I won’t say that this is a totally ineffective hàng hóa. My personal anti-aging skincare method revolves around attacking issues with actives, then supplementing those actives with antioxidant-heavy hydrating treatment products. I love antioxidants in skincare. They provide a lot of potential extra protection against wrinkle-accelerating không tính phí radical damage & may also help prsự kiện oxidation of melanin in skin, reducing the development of hyperpigmentation.

Preventative sầu effects are difficult to quantify & demand a lot of faith, though. For that reason, I demvà that even preventative-type products have at least some visible effects in the short term. If they don’t, I just won’t consider them worth using over the long term. And wouldn’t you know, I just happen khổng lồ have sầu suggestions for some products that have sầu given me actual, visible results where the Time Revolution Night Repair Longer Name Ampoule didn’t!

Skin firming: Banila Co Miss Flower và Mr Honey Essence Oil (original review và ingredients). This is a highly moisturizing, heavier serum-type sản phẩm that also makes heavy use of fermentation. Fermented honey, to be specific. It gave sầu me an impressive sầu insta-firming effect as well as lots of glow; I’ve sầu been through several bottles of it. (Amazon*)

Elastiđô thị và resilience: Sulwhasoo Capsulized Ginseng Fortifying Serum (original Review và ingredients). For me, the effects of this serum are truly quality. It makes my skin bounce back from just about anything–I don’t even get pillow creases when I’ve been using this regularly.

Brightening and hyperpigmentation: Over the years, I’ve sầu found that niacinamide works far better for my skin than other comtháng OTC, non-acid skin brighteners. And Holy Snails Shark Sauce works far better for my skin than pretty much any other brightening products I’ve sầu tried (though Naruko’s Platinum Bright Essence Repairing Complex and Face Renewal Miracle Essence vì come close).

Chel, who is also my good friover và fellow Snailcast member, formulated this with the max proven percentage of niacinamide và boosted that with n-acetylglucosamine for a powerhouse hàng hóa. Also, it makes sense that this works well for me, since Shark Sauce was born from a late-night whine & cheese session. Basically, I whined about products not having disclosed percentages of niacinamide. Then I cheesed when she offered khổng lồ make me some maxed-out niacinamide serum herself. I still use Shark Sauce every day. (Holy Snails Shop)
