Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for the ‘Mask’ Category

Time Revolution White Cure is new whitening line of Missha introduced in 2011 with three exclusive compounds. 1) DN-Aid™ , a DNA repair ingredient created in collaboration with SERO Biologiques of France. 2) White-Cure™ that contains melanin care ingredients of Madagascar island to lighten the pigmentation and control the melanin formation. 3) Seven flower extracts – White rose, Freesia, Edelweiss, Jasmine, White lily, Iris and Lotus for various skin care benefits.

I love flowers, they always have special power to beautify this world. Being a rational skin care person, I tend to take flower formulation in skin care product as emotive ingredient more than effective ingredient, exception given to those are supported with sufficient scientific studies from reputable world organization.

Both White Cure toner and lotion have strong floral scent, which is pretty common trait of Korean skin care. I personally think the fragrance is soapy. The Super Essential Toner (KRW22000/150ml) has a tint of slippery feel, feeling very lightweight, refreshing and absorbed in skin easily; whereas the Super Radiance Lotion (KRW22000/130ml) was feeling light and moisturizing, leaving skin shinny-looking and it was slightly sticky before it dried on skin. For moisturizing effect, I have mixed feeling about them eventhough I have only tried them for a week plus in total. As the skin condition varied in different circumstances, they felt insufficient for drier skin but moisturized just right when skin was oilier. For whitening effect, I have yet to see any result given with the short trial.

Gel-textured sheet mask normally costs more than normal mask but this Missha mask is actually affordable for try if you purchase it at its original Korea retail price.


The mask sheet is held between the transparent plastic film and a white pearl paper. It is extremely slippery!! I need to handle the mask sheet very carefully. It had slipped down from my hands into the basin once, but I still picked up the contaminated mask and applied it to skin, my skin itched within several minutes! Will never do that again.


Both sides of the texture are different. One side is smooth while the other side is not glossy thus adhered to skin more steadily.


I placed the unsmooth side to skin but the mask could still slip down easily, so I have to adjust the mask sheet from time to time during application (40 minutes!).


In spite of the mask ingredients have enough studies backed up their lightening effect, the instant brightening result after application was actually quite subtle compared to those Vitamin C-enriched mask. However, after a close examination, I did see the uncovered skin appeared a shade darker than the skin covered with the mask, hence I believed the skin indeed had been temporary lightened up a little bit particularly it had been “soaked” for 40 mins. The hydration effect was pretty mediocre that skin texture appeared nothing much different before and after.


I have three pieces of this mask and the last mask sheet that I tried was appeared to be slightly drier than the previous two because it felt not so slippery. Therefore I think the mask sheet would become drier after storing for certain period, best to get the fresher batch. As a sum-up, the Missha Time Revolution White Cure Hydro Gel Mask has never fascinated me since the first use but a new skin care experience anyway.
