Missha recently released a copy-cat version of the infamous SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. It has sparked a huge debate among Asian skincare fans, so Hope In A Blog did their research on these two identical products.
There’s no debate here on the price – Missha wins hands down! Priced at only 42,000 wons – and for the same amount ( 150ml ), SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is 4 times more expensive!
Judging from the ingredient list too – Missha Time Revolution Treatment Essence has a LOT more beneficial ingredients from Niacinamide, Licorice Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Adenosine and etc compared to the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which focuses on the Fermentation Extract and no other beneficial ingredients.
The main difference between both is the ferment filtrate. SK-II uses 90% of their infamous Saccharomycopsis Ferment Filtrate, a type of yeast produced during the fermentation of sake. P&G scientists claim that a special filtering process makes Pitera an extra-special yeast by-product but has not published many research to back this up. Missha uses 80% of Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, which is the yeast used to brew beer. It is also interesting that Pitera ( the main ingredient in SK-II Facial Treatment Essence ) is from the same family as Saccharomycescerevisiae , the yeast used in beer and also in Missha The First Treatment Essence. Since they are from the same family, would they have the same effect? Or is the SK-II Saccharomycopsis just a marketing ploy by P&G?
Either way, Missha Time Revolution Treatment Essence is worth the try just for it’s price and the number of beneficial ingredients included in the essence. If it works, SK-II will have a big problem, and i mean, BIG.
