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.

Missha seems to be really confident with this product as they are daring to compare their product to the SK-II in their advertistment and website. Looks like they’ve got all their guns ready and ready to fire! Look at the video below and how they blurred the SK-II logo! Hahaha.

  1. (I think you inverted the prices in the first description at the begining of the article.)

    Anyway, INDEED! If the Missha essence is as good as the Sk-II’s, there will be PANIC at the Sk-II’s headquarters lol

    I have the Sk-II Essence. When I’ll finish it I’ll totally buy the Missah’s.

  2. I definitely didn’t need another product at home… But I couldn’t help and snatch one since it was just released in HK. It’s more expensive here, about 25000 krw more. I haven’t used for a long time, just one for 2 days. What can I say, it’s not as nearly good as SK-II. The skin doesnt feel moisturized, nor does it glow like after using pitera. Hmm. I will continue to use it, but even Sum 37 is closer to the real deal. However I should admit that both SK II and SUM 37 gave me a mild reaction but I am
    Absolutely fine with Missha.

  3. now i doubt about it since SK-II didn’t feel moisturized on my skin neither does it leave any glow on my skin. However, i heard otherwise….so i’m going to try when i can…fingers crossed
