There are many pretenders to the throne, but for me, there is only one Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. It is now eye-wateringly expensive, and it receives mixed reviews, but I am one who is still loyal to it after all this years. Naturally therefore, when I came across rumblings of a possible more affordable Estee Lauder ANR “dupe”, I was interested.
Rather unsettling for me was the fact that it was by Korean brand Missha. It is the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Science Activator Borabit Ampoule – that is a freaking mouthful, so I’ll just call it the Missha Time Revolution Night Repair. Why unsettling? It’s because, unlike many, I’m not your biggest fan of Korean brand skincare. And especially not of Missha, which I’d sampled many years ago, and found them too basic, too harsh, and wanting.
But still, I told myself, let’s have a go. What did I have to lose?
