Hi, Everyone, it’s me Heiley.
Have you ever heard of the ingredient “?”
Bifida Ferment Lysate is a component obtained by the dissolution of fermented Bificobacteria
which strengthens the skin barrier, improves skin tone, supplies moisture and nutrition and more.
It is a non-oil ingredient that is non-sticky, feels fresh, and does not occlude the skin, allowing it to breathe.
For today, I will introduce and compare
an expensive and an inexpensive product
that contains this Bifida Ferment Lysate.
For today’s Expensive vs Inexpensive product
We have Estee Lauder’s Little Brown Bottle,
Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (6th Gen) and
Missha’s Violet Ampoule, the Time Revolution Night Repair Violet Ampoule (4th Gen).
Estee Lauder’s comes in a plastic container, while Missha’s comes in a glass one.
Estee Lauder’s Little Brown Bottle 50ml costs 155,000 Korean Won,
where as Missha’s Violet Ampoule 50ml costs 39,000 Korea Won,
which calculates to 3,100 KRW per 1ml of Estee Lauder’s Little Brown bottle
780 KRW per 1 ml of MIssha’s Violet Ampoule.
Although these two products differ in brand and price,
there are actually a lot of similarities when it comes to their content.
As mentioned before, they both contain Bifida Ferment Lysate.
In addition, they also contain other ingredients such as Fermented Lactobacillus,
Squalane, and more
to not only strengthen the skin barrier, but also moisturize, improve skin tone, and elasticity.
Both products have a very pale brown color
and are viscous in texture.
The application of both products also feels similar,
being slightly smooth upon application,
as it gradually gets absorbs into the skin.
But, the finish between the two are slightly different.
Where as Estee Lauder’s Brown Bottle is light and watery,
and is gradually absorbed into the skin when applied,
Missha’s Violet Ampoule has a wet and nutritious feeling
as if I had covered my skin with a barrier of moisture.
When comparing the two products
Estee Lauder’s was less shiny
while the Missha side provided a bit shinier finish.
Having dry skin, I applied each product separately, one on each side of my face
to compare the differences.
Estee Lauder’s product appeared to be absorbed faster
but felt a bit dry,
where as Missha’s product took a bit longer to be absorbed,
but provided me with a moist finish,
therefore I found Missha’s product to be better in the sense of moisturization.
In addition, since both products works to improve the overall skin condition
or to improve the skin texture,
I consistently used each product separately, one on each side of my face for a whole week.
As for the results of after using these products for a week,
I noticed that the side with Estee Lauder, which I had mention felt slightly dry, was slightly smoother.
Although the side with Missha had also gotten a little smoother,
it did not become as smooth as the side with Estee Lauder’s applied.
So let me first point out the ingredients that they both share,
and then briefly talk about my thoughts from using both of them for week.
So let’s now take a quick look at the ingredients
with the brief specifications of these two products together.
When looking at the ingredient list of both products,
we can see that the number of ingredients in Missha’s product is much higher.
Missha’s product is said to use the Pro Ferment α™ technology.
Bifida Ferment Lysate is at the top of the list,
In addition, there are also Lactobaillus Extract which includes Bifida Fermented Lysate,
Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract,
Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate,
Bifida Ferment Filtrate,
Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate,
Lactobacillus/Acerola Cherry Ferment,
Lactobacillus/Punica Granatum Fruit Ferment Extract,
Lactococcus Ferment Extract,
Lactococcus Ferment Lysate, and more,
totaling up to 10 kinds of Lactobacillus ingredients, each with their individual effects.
With these ingredients, it is expected to provide energy to the troubled areas of the skin
in order to liven it up for clear healthy skin.
It’s said to contain five kinds of purple-colored ingredients such as purple carrot, purple cabbage, eggplant, beetroot, and blueberry
to soothe the skin irritated by the harmful environment,
so you can expect to make your skin smooth and healthy.
It also contains Collageneer,
which is a combination of white lupine seed extract and sunflower seed oil,
to improve the firmness of the skin and provide smoothing care to rough skin.
Taking a look at all the ingredients...
except for the inclusion of lavender oil that requires a bit of attention,
there really aren’t any ingredients that look harmful.
So as long as you’re not sensitive to lavender oil,
this would appear to be fine for people of all skin types.
Estee Lauder’s product on the other hands appears to only have a few ingredients
and is said to make use of their exclusive innovative Chronolux Bioclock Technology.
Bifida Ferment Lysate is listed second on the ingredients list.
It also contains a yeast extract which is effective for skin tone improvement.
I also see that it contains Sodium RNA and Squalane which are effective against aging.
Sodium RNA is an ingredient that is promoted by Estee Lauder as “Clock Gene”
As to my knowledge, it is also included in a lot of placenta cosmetics.
Looking at the ingredients,
I can tell that the ingredients are mostly effective for moisturizing, soothing and for their antioxidant effects on the skin.
Echinacea Purpurea Extra which can protect your skin
Chamomile which is effective in soothing, and caffeine are also some of the ingredients that stand out from the list.
In addition, I also see that it contains Tocopheryl Acetate which has antioxidant effects and may delay or prevents skin damage.
Tocopheryl Acetate is also known as source of a vitamin E.
In addition to the ingredients listed above, most of the remaining ingredients are either ingredients for conditioning
As I was checking out the ingredients, I was surprised that it contains
Ingredients for viscosity control and even pigments that could’ve been omitted.
When looking at the overall ingredients, I noticed some of the ingredient requires attention.
If you are someone who has sensitive skin,
I believe it is crucial that you do perform a skin test before purchasing or using it.
If you were to only check the contents of this product, you’ll find that it is similar to products of other brands.
The ingredients, the effects and the speed of the effects appears to be slightly different.
What I felt from trying out both products for a week, was that
Estee Lauder’s product was obviously faster in terms of effectiveness,
and I was able to notice the effects right away,
while Missha’s was comfortable and surprisingly moist,
I felt that it would’ve been better if the effects were noticeable quicker.
Personally, since the Estee Lauder’s provided quicker results,
I thought that if I were to keep on using it, my skin would definitely get better quickly,
on the flipside,
I was also concerned whether such a quick acting product would cause the skin to become slightly irritated.
As for Missha’s product, although the effects were relatively slower than Estee Lauder’s,
being that it was relatively gentle on the skin when applied,
I thought it would be great for daily use.
But, since the moist feeling is not that of the hydrating sort,
but of the sort when it covers your skin with a moisture barrier,
If you are someone with oily, or combination skin,
I believe that it would be better to avoid using it in the summer.
Of course, all these thoughts are just my personal opinion, so please take them as reference only.
The choice is yours.
So, let me show you a comparison chart of the two products.
Estee Lauder’s revolutionary 1st generation Night Repair serum that has been loved by many since 1982
for its endless efforts to its current 6th generation
Missha’s Night Repair serum that has been steadily developing from its 1st generation in 2012
to its current 4th generation.
Two brands that have placed much effort
in creating a better and more effective product.
How can we not applaud them for the amount of effort they have made?
Oh, and the two products we compared today
both have the name Night Repair on the front.
And that’s because they are both said to be more effective at night rather than during the day.
Even if you want to use them during the name, please note that you should continuously use them at night.
By using them consistently, you will feel your skin smoothening and firming up.
As for me, Estee Lauder and Missha.
I like both of these products, and I will be continuing to use them.
Everyone, which one do you prefer? Estee Lauder’s or Missha’s?
