Missha is one of those brands who have gained prominence in Asia as a copy-cat brand – they recreate very high-end beauty products and sell them at a much more affordable price. The Time Revolution is one of such items – this is supposed to be a “dupe” for the SKII’s Facial Treatment Essence.
A quick review today on the APIEU Essential Source Hyaluronic Acid First Ampoule – I found this when I was in Korea last year, and got it for KRW22000 which is about SGD22 for 30ml. I found it selling for a similar price on a few websites that sell korean products. Honestly, the only word that I can read on it is “hyaluronic acid”, which has been such a big thing in the beauty world for the last few years.
Today’s review is on the Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum, which i purchased from the Sulwhasoo counter in Tangs Orchard. I got it quite a few months ago, when the 60ml retailed for $106. I’ve also briefly mentioned this before in an earlier post on the serums and essence that I’ve been using.

As a skincare junkie, trying out new skincare is one of my favourite activities of the day. And it’s particularly enjoyable when it comes in cute packaging such as this Skin Inc Regenerate Vitamin A Serum! But of course, just looking good in the bottle does not mean anything to me – does the serum itself perform as well as it looks?
