Review: Our Journey With SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

Here’s our testimonial after using the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for a month!

For any beauty lover, having crystal clear and hydrated skin is super important. And it’s no secret that the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is able to provide all that and more. It’s been around for over 39 years and is the world’s first beauty essence with an unchanged formula! The key ingredient to the Facial Treatment Essence is PITERA™ which was discovered in a sake brewery in Japan through a chance observation of an old Toji’s miraculously youthful-looking hands with a stark contrast to his wrinkled face!

SK-II had recently invited me to write an honest review of the product and naturally I was excited as I’ve only heard good things about it including positive before and after stories, plus I’d finally have my first SK-II experience! Read on to see how to use the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, my tips and tricks to get the best out of every drop and what I really thought about it.

The Facial Treatment Essence

First off, if you’ve watched the journeys of SK-II’s own celebrities with the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, you’ll know that the essence works in a way where in 30 days, your skin is transformed into a more youthful, crystal clear complexion. However, being the tiny sceptic that I am, I had questions before going into this – just like most of us considering splurging on the essence. Does SK-II really work? Is the Facial Treatment Essence worth the price of RM715? Will it really improve my skin after a month? Well here’s how it went.

How to use the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

To apply, simply soak a cotton pad and swipe gently onto your face and neck. But don’t throw it away just yet, turn it over and dab the remaining essence onto your skin to allow better absorption or use it as an eye mask – it’s a great way to maximise the use of the Facial Treatment Essence! And if you’re the meticulous sort like me, there’s no problem applying directly onto your hands, as long as it’s clean of course.

Put your Facial Treatment Essence in the fridge overnight for a cooling and refreshing sensation to give your skin a pick-me-up in the morning or anytime during the day!

To my surprise, my skin felt amazing right after the first application! The essence is extremely lightweight and sparse making it really easy to absorb into my dry skin leaving it super soft and hydrated. Another thing I really loved about the Facial Treatment Essence is that achieving the dewy look was so easy! Since it gave a natural, healthy shine, all I needed was my base and some sculpting powder over it.

To make your dewy skin more prominent, dab on a little more of the essence onto your cheekbones over your makeup.

Before and After

I definitely noticed some improvements once the 30 days were up. Although it took awhile for my skin to adjust, the dryness faded away and began to glow over time. I also found my skin to be a lot more smoother with the pores minimised. My skintone was evened out and looked so much healthier and brighter than when I first started it thanks to the cell regenerating components.

The Verdict

Would I recommend you to invest in the Facial Treatment Essence? Yes, if you plan on using it as more than just a skin treatment. With the product being versatile enough to incorporate into your beauty routine, or even to pamper yourself after a long, hard day, you’d definitely be making good use of it. But if you’re not ready to commit to the price, you can always try the SK-II’s Pitera Welcome Set (RM260) which includes the mini sizes of the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and R.N.A.Power Radical New Age along with the Facial Treatment essence.

The Facial Treatment Essence is priced at RM715 for 230ml, RM529 for 160ml and RM239 for 75ml. Go ahead and purchase one for yourself now from their website here. If you’d like to learn more about the welcome set, click here.
