The Missha is one of the dupes for SK-II, and I personally feel that in terms of placing, Missha places number 3 as one of those dupes.
Similar to SK-II, with placing comes the (1)Iope Bio Intensive Conditioning Essence, (2)Innisfree Soybean Essence, (4)Tony Moly 96.5 Essence and the Missha itself.
The consistency is slightly tacky and sticky. Yeast smell too.. I find that my skin doesn't have any changes and therefore I would recommend the innisfree because it's cheaper and absorbs well. Unless you want to opt for a higher end brand then Iope would do nicely.View Review
Bought the third generation while it was on sale on *****. It was way cheaper than the retail price in Sunway Pyramid.
I will be comparing this to SK-II since I've used both before.
Smell wise, I think this smells less heavy than SK-II. The liquid itself is in the same colour as the SK-II's FTE but is stickier than SK-II. However, it goes on the skin nicely so it's not a major issue. I use this day and night after the toning step by patting it onto the skin with my palms.
Overall I have not seen any drastic improvement for my skin but it may have prevented the formation of acnes along the way.
It is also much cheaper than SK-II and I think it's worth what I pay for.
Would recommend this if you want to try out a good quality FTE at a much lower price.
I got a sample size of this and have been using this together with the Missha's Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule. I did not notice any visible changes in my skin nor did I break out from it. However, I would like to note that my face feels a bit bloated in the mornning after using this, so I tend to avoid the eyes area. It is much cheaper than the brand everyone is comparing it to. The scent is barely visible to as compared to the other brand. It does gives you that dewy look in the morning, but nothing that really 'wow' me. Personally would not purchase this again.View Review
Just started using this not long ago, and i think this really works! Have been using for a few weeks and everytime i use, i like how supple my face felt after that. My skin tone seem to have gotten brighter slightly too. cant wait to see how much it can really do! heard good reviews of this and is glad i tried it. my skin can be pretty sensitive but this does not cause breakout or anything, and it is lightweight, watery feel. it has a slight odour though, but it is not overwhelming so its fineView Review
Many have said that this product is a good dupe of the SKII Facial Treatment Essence. I bought the latest one, the third generation, with intensive moist while I was in Seoul. I use this in my daily skincare routine for both day and night after applying my toner. After using it for quite some time I did notice that it has improved my skin moisture and radiance level although the different is not that significant. The product is clear and watery and my skin absorbs it really quickly. I use my hands instead of a cotton so I won't waste the product. It does makes my face feel smooth instantly and I always like to touch it after I apply it!View Review
