Bifida Ferment Lysate is the primary ingredient here and it’s some form of yeast. You might think why yeast on skin as it sounds disgusting but surprisingly it does wonders when applied to skin topically. It provides anti aging benefits, brightening, and hydration.

If you compare the two products, Missha contains slightly more skin favoring ingredients such as Niacinamide (Vit B3), peptides, and Retinol although I’m unsure what’s the % of each ingredient. Both products have a brownish tint to it and runny in consistency. It absorbs right in when applied. Now you probably want to know the results on both. Honestly, I don’t quite like both because they sorta clogged my pores after a week. I used them on two different occasions of course. I also find it’s slightly too rich for my normal to dry skin type. It’s my first time using a serum with yeast and perhaps it’s too strong for me as I have sensitive skin at times. I wonder if using it 2-3x a week would be better. My boyfriend ended up using both products and his skin type is combination. He likes both and the results are the same meaning not one is better than the other. Both products made his skin tone more even and well hydrated. If he has to choose, he likes the Missha one slightly better because it’s more hydrating and the price is so much lower! I think both products are worth a try as everyone’s skin is different. If you’re located in Canada just like me, the Estee Lauder serum can be ordered online at beauty boutique at Shoppers. They offer free shipping over $50 and you can collect points to redeem for products after. I got mine when they have a special bonus points promotion which is a good deal! Although both products didn’t work out for me, I believe it’s one of those products one has to try – it either works great or doesn’t do anything at all.

Let me know in the comments below what you think of both products if you have tried it before. I’m interested to know how it works out for others. Thank you for reading!

  1. Ugh i really want to try estee lauder, but the price was just crazy
    A few ingredients slightly concern me like octinoxate, bht and dyes
    The missha one on the other hand, has too many ingredients so it only have like a micro size of everything
    Its retinol is only like 0,0004% if i remember correctly (fiddysnails review)
    Maybe I’ll try rosehip oil or kiehls mrc instead


    1. I got mine at shoppers drug mart. I get to redeem my points for it so it wasn’t too bad lol. I’ll have to say you need to try both to decide! Maybe go with missha first since it’s cheaper and if it doesn’t do anything, Estee Lauder then lol
