For newbies to Korean Beauty, a First Treatment Essence is the product you would use right after your toner. Missha’s FTE is one of those ubiquitous, holy grail products that are raved about for a reason it’s just that good. It’s known as a miracle water which hydrate, restores, rejuvenates and generally just makes you glow.
The FTE contains a whopping 80% Fermented Yeast Concentrate (a naturally fortified Vitamin B Group ingredient) which increases the rate of metabolism and maintains healthy skin. It has similar components to NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor) to help improve the foundation of skin through moisturizing, firming, and balancing. The Niacinamide rich essence is not just for brightening. This Vitamin B3 component improves skin elasticity, enhances the skin barrier function, and revives skin tone and texture. Niacinamide also has anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and occlusive benefits.
A study was done in Japan on 30 women who used a Niacinamide cream on one side of their face and a no-nutrient carrier on the other side. 64% had wrinkle reduction in the side where Niacinamide was used.
Because of the tightening of cellular bonds and anti-inflammatory effects, it’s also proven as an awesome ingredient to prevent acne and rosacea.
Missha’s FTE also includes DN-Aid, made from Cassia-Alata Extract which adds vitality to the skin, protects against UV rays which cause aging and promotes restoration of damaged DNA.
To use, after your toner, simply pour some of the FTE into your palm then pat gently into your skin working in an upward motion towards your temples.
We loved Missha’s Time Revolution FTE so much, we included a trial set which includes the FTE and Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Ampoule in the February Bomibox for you to try if you haven’t already. The Ampoule energizes, repairs, and restores elasticity. It also provides wrinkle repairing and whitening benefits.
