I decided to do a review on the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence because it's one product which had done wonders on my skin. I've been procrastinating for sometime now to do this review, but now that I'm on my semester break, I finally had some time to post this up.
I have always been curious if this stuff really works, whenever the famous commercial on SK-II pops up on the TV screen. Ever since I've started to include SK-II Facial Treatment Essence in my daily skincare regime, I've noticed a large difference in my skin tone and I break out less often nowadays too.
Previously, I always have these annoying red, uneven spots around my cheeks and above my brows. I have done numerous researches on it and tried everything I could to make them go away, but the redness seems to remain there and I'm always getting comments like 'oh my goodness, are you blushing?'. After using SK-II Facial Treatment Essence religiously for almost a year, I've noticed that its becoming less obvious. Well, I still do have slight redness sometimes but only when the weather is really hot or I've gotten a sunburn because I forgot to put on sunblock.
This essence contains 90% Pitera, the miracle ingredient discovered over 30 years ago which is still used till the present day. Some of the other ingredients are Saccharomycopsis Ferment Filtrate**, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Aqua (Water/ Eau), Sodium Benzoate, Methylparaben, Sorbic Acid. It acts as a mild exfoliator which helps your skin to regenerate naturally.
If you have a look at their website, SK-II Facial Treatment Essence works on your skin through the 5 dimensions of beautiful, crystal clear skin which makes spots less visible, reduces wrinkle appearance, refines skin texture, improves firmness and increases radiance.
One bottle of 150 ml lasts me for about 8 months and I'm on my second bottle already. Some of my friends have mentioned that initially, they were a little turned off by the smell which seemed like vinegar. But, after some time, you will get used to it for sure. I love its water-like consistency which isn't sticky and makes application easier. Usually, I will pour a sufficient amount on a cotton pad and pat it all over my face twice a day, in the morning before applying sunblock and at night before going to bed. It's advisable to tap it on to ensure all the good stuffs get thoroughly absorbed into the skin.
Here's how much you need to put on a cotton pad!
I kept a log on the changes that SK-II Facial Treatment Essence had done to improve my overall complexion. Here it is, bear in mind that these pictures are not edited at all, they are RAW images taken straight out of my NX mini.
