Skin Balancing Essence. Women everywhere are so passionate about Facial Treatment Essence that they describe it as their 'holy water.' Pitera, the seemingly magical ingredient found in all SK-II products, helps restore vital balance by promoting the skin's natural 28-day surface renewal process. This singular blend of vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids produces a seemingly miraculous rebirth of skin's appearance. Over 90% pure Pitera, Facial Treatment Essence is the 'heart' of every SK-II skincare ritual. Rely on it daily to moisturize instantly, and renew skin's surface for a smoother texture. Skin absorbs the benefits almost on contact. The result is supple, smooth, radiant skin.
This is so nice and moisturizing it has a faint rice and sake smell and really helped my skin! I got this in Asia but i think you can get this at Sephora but not sure so check it out 😘
I have always been skeptical about this supposed 'Miracle in a Bottle' that is packed with, 'amino acids, minerals, and organic acids to promote a healthy skin cell renewal cycle.' Apparently, 'with daily application, this essence moisturizes, improves texture and clarity, and contributes to a more beautiful, balanced, and glowing complexion.' I have read a plethora of mixed reviews about this product, and seeing as it is so pricey, I chose not to pick up a bottle of it at that time. What a huge mistake.
Not too long ago, I started using SK II's foundation primers: Signs Control Base and the Lucent Base, and I was really impressed by how these bases made the skin look even before I applied any foundation. I have also worked with a few actresses that used this product and their skin looked like fresh cream. So I bit the bullet and shelled out the Benjamins.....
All you do is pour a tsp. into the palm of your hand and gently press it into the skin. Your skin sucks it up like a parched piece of papyrus on a rainy day would. After 2 or 3 uses, I noticed my skin texture was more refined, lines were greatly softened and my skin had a healthy glow that I haven't seen staring back at me in the mirror since I was 22 years old. I truly believe this is a miracle product, and it's worth every penny.
I've been using SK-II for a few weeks and my skin indeed looks brighter but I have a couple of pimples growing more recently.. It could be due to my skin adjusting because after application, my skin feels a bit 'tingly' or it could be my skin being sensitive! The results are very obvious after 2-3 times and it works on almost everyone. :) xx
I am currently working for this company and it is amazing, the products are amazing! It really is a miracle in a bottle. I have a very oily skin with lots of breakouts and large pores and since using the Facial Treatment Essence it has improved my skin so much, i can now run up to the shops with no makeup and not feel embaressed about my skin and not having any makeup on to hide my imperfections. Truly Amazing!
They don't call this "Holy Water" for nothing. I stole a large bottle from my mom who also swears by SKII products and it might smell a little funky until it dries up but it definitely makes my skin softer and smoother.
I have been using this great product since my college days! I love it as it's not harsh and makes your skin soft and dewy!=) My boyfriend said my face feels baby soft and I believe it's because I've been using this for years! Highly recommended!^_^
