let's recycle!

Yay—let's recycle! Here’s a quick guide for when you've finished using all your products:

1. Make the products 'recycle ready' by rinsing it out and cleaning it. What if the product doesn't work for me? Give it to someone who might like to try it! That way, you will minimise wastage and give the product a second home. ♡♡

2. Get the DETAILS! Typically, most skin care packaging is recyclable in Australia, but what can and can’t be recycled depends on where you live. A quick Google search will reveal a recycling guideline based on your state / territory.

3. Can I put this in my recycling bin? If you've checked and the answer is 'yes', give these items a second life and put them in the recycling bin. If it's not, look into enterprises like TerraCycle, to help you properly recycle your beauty products. If the product is recycable through TerraCycle, it is FREE and all you have to do is gather your empty products together, print a recycling label and ship it out - that’s it! They’ll take care of the rest for you.

FYI, recycling plants uses numbers ranging from 1 to 7 to help sort all the materials. PETE stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate and PP stands for Polypropylene — these are both plastics. PAP represents paper / mixed paper / cardboard. See Earth Easy to learn more about your plastics.

That's it babes! Remember to love our earth; love our planet! #dontbetrashy

Frequently Asked Questions

What does MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence RX do?

The Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence RX does it all: it brightens, hydrates, soothes redness and even smooths out fine lines thanks to a potent mix of fermented yeast, bifida ferment lysate, niacinamide, ceramides and adenosine.

Is Missha Time Revolution essence a toner?

Technically, the Missha Time Revolution Essence is, well, an essence and not a toner. In a traditional K-Beauty skincare routine, an essence is the step AFTER a toner, and BEFORE your serum and moisturizer. While toners are generally astringent (i.e. cleansing), hydrating or pH correcting, essences tend to treat a specific skincare concern and supposedly enhance the absoprtion of your serums and creams.

Does Missha Time Revolution Essence have niacinamide?

The Missha Time Revolution Essence contains niacinamide in both its original and new (5x) formula. Its one of the key skin brightening and soothing ingredients.

Is Missha Time Revolution essence good?

Tens of thousands of diehard fans can attest to how good the Missha Time Revolution Essence is! The product has attracted an almost perfect 5 star rating on Korean Beauty curator extraordinare, Soko Glam - and that's amid some very stiff competition.

How well does this absorb into skin?

The watery texture of the Time Revolution First Treatment Essence means it's absorbed very quickly into the skin, particularly if your skin is feeling parched. The consistency is slightly thicker with the 5x version, but is no less easily absorbed.

Is Missha Time Revolution essence fragrance free?

The Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence (both the original and the 5x) is fragrance free. That means no artificial fragrances or essential oils. It has a 'fresh' kind of scent about it to the keen noses out there, but most can't really detect much of a smell.

can you layer the Missha Time Revolution essence on top of a different essence?

The Time Revolution Essence can definitely be layered - on top of a different essence or a toner. In fact, most K-Beauty products were developed to be in a multi-step, layered routine, so you can tackle several different skin concerns at once. You can also apply multiple layers of the essence itself - it has a watery texture that doesn't pill.

How long after essence can I apply serum?

With most essences including this Missha Treatment Essence, wait until your essence is almost dry (i.e. skin appears slightly tacky but not bone dry) before applying your serum of choice.

What is the appropriate age to use MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence RX?

The Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence doesn't contain any ingredients that suggest there is an appropriate age group for this - it can literally be used by anyone, young or old. Obviously, this doesn't extend to kids and babies (we don't think we've ever met a kid that looked like it needed an essence before).

Is MISSHA Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence RX good for oily skin?

The Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence Rx isn't specifically targeted towards oily skin in that it won't really help with regulating excess sebum production: with that said, it shouldn't do it any harm either. It's not greasy and can actually assist with oily skin that's dehydrated at the same time.
