We’re featuring another Skin & Tonics blog post comparing Missha’s product to another brand’s!
(If you haven’t yet seen their comparison of Missha’s The First Treatment Essence to SK-II’s essence, click here!)
Missha’s Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule energizes, repairs, and restores elasticity to the skin while providing wrinkle repairing and whitening benefits. It helps create flawless skin by promoting the skin’s natural power to improve its condition daily by providing it with extra nutrients and moisture.
The ampoule provides 3 main benefits to the skin: it improves any skin damages, supplies energy to the skin, and strengthens elasticity of the skin.
The Night Repair Ampoule contains various lactic acid fermented ingredients which create smooth and firm skin. Ingredients include Fermented Bifida, which strengthens the skin’s barrier to prevent damage from harmful environmental factors. Lactobacillus Ferment contains Peptide and Vitamin B12 for an improved, healthy skin condition. Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate has protective and antioxidant properties to moisturize and improve the skin barrier. Lactococcus Ferment strengthens and soothes sensitive skin.
A multi-vitamin complex of vitamins and vitamin derivates, including Vitamin C, create a synergy effect with the various lactic acid ferment ingredients to help repair the skin.

Our essence is often compared to Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Ampoule, which also contains Fermented Bifidia. Skincare blog “Skin & Tonics” notes that “Like the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum, Missha Time Revolution Science Activator Ampoule also contains Lactobacillus and Sodium Hyaluronate. The Missha serum contains Retinol instead of Retinyl Palmitate – Retinol being the stronger of the two. Additionally, the Missha formula also contains a multitude of beneficial plant extracts, and one of my personal favorite actives, Niacinamide, which has anti-inflammatory and brightening properties”
Skin & Tonics rates Missha’s ampoule as 4.4/5, saying that in terms of performance, it was “brightening, calming, slightly moisturizing. Purported cumulative anti-aging effects”. Regarding quality, “luxurious glass packaging with spillage protection, stellar ingredient list with no irritants” and in terms of value, “$80 retail for 100 mL (3.4 oz) of product is a great price for a quality serum. Additionally, it’s frequently on sale on Missha’s US Website”
On the other hand, Estee Lauder’s ampoule was rated 3.7/5, particularly because one of ingredients Oleth-3 is a potential acne trigger.
