Welcome to my review of the Missha First Treatment Essence Mist. Comment below this post if you need any more clarification; I’d be happy to help!

Age: 25

Skin type: Sensitive, combination (dry in winter, oily in summer, can get oily from the wrong products)

Skin concerns: Moderate acne, hyperpigmentation, redness, itchiness from products

Climates I tested this in: All climates

Length of time tested: More than a year on and off

How often I used: Once a day (morning)

How much I applied: A thin mist


  • made my skin look noticeably more radiant immediately after use and even more radiant long term
  • texture is moisturizing but light; not greasy
  • makes foundation glide on much better (perhaps it’s the natural silica it contains)
  • didn’t notice any strong smell
  • doesn’t clog my pores
  • has a cocktail of top anti-aging and discoloration-lightening ingredients (niacinamide, adenosine, licorice, just to name a few)
  • no harmful alcohol/fragrance 
  • bottle is sturdy plastic and looks nice
  • opaque bottle keeps light from breaking down ingredients
  • produces a fine, even mist
  • 2 size options: 50 ml and 120 ml


  • because the spray isn’t your typical water-feeling spray, it can be easy to use too much because it’s hard to tell how much you’re putting on
  • if used frequently, the amount you get for the price won’t be the best ($20 for 50 ml)
  • it can get slightly sticky throughout the day if too much is used on hot and humid days or on very oily skin
  • this one is only a con for me: it caused slight redness and itchiness due to me being allergic to one of the ingredients
