Additionoal Product Information
SK-II's signature product, the much-loved and most awarded bestseller, Facial Treatment Essence has over 90% Pitera, the miracle ingredient discovered over 30 years ago that remains essentially unchanged till today
Its irreplaceable formula gently exfoliates the face and helps moderate the skin surface renewal cycle. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence helps to improve the appearance of 5 dimensions of beautiful, crystal clear skin: spots are less visible, appearance of wrinkles is reduced, skin texture is more refined, firmness is improved, and radiance is beautifully elevated. Skin becomes breathtakingly crystal clear.
Beauty essences first became popular in Asia. They are designed to be used just after cleansing and before any other products are used. Essences infuse the skin with nutrients and moisture. They are usually water-like in consistency, but are very concentrated in their ingredients. An essence is the most concentrated version of an ingredient that can go into the skin. SK-II chose a nutrient rich liquid to use for our Facial Treatment Essence because it penetrates faster and easier than a serum formula. Think of a flowerpot: If you pour water on the surface, it penetrates through the dirt to the bottom of the pot. If you poured oil on the surface, it would just sit on top.see more...

It helps so much in the winter when the temperature drops into single digits. My skin is still hydrated and there are no rough patches or dry patches of skin.
I know the price is a huge reason people don't try this. But it's totally worth it. I also know some people aren't using the product correctly. It goes on AFTER the toner. So it's in this order ---> cleanser --> Toner --> essence --> serum ---> moisturizer
And some people put it on a cotton pad and rub it into their skin. Don't rub it! I made the same mistake too! Pat it it gently into your skin, don't slap your face, pat it. I use my hands because I can't let the cotton pad soak up this extra essence! I need every drop of it! This is my one splurge item of the year and I'm going to stand by it!
Then I got it in the Sephora All Stars special edition Play! box. The sample bottle looked so tiny. Surely I’d get only a few uses out of it...right?
I was so wrong, on both counts. It really doesn’t take much. I’ve been using my little tiny 10 ml sample bottle for over three weeks now, every morning and every evening. After washing my face, before moisturizing, I pour a very small amount into my hand, just the tiniest splash (a puddle slightly larger than a dime), rub my hands together, and pat it all over my face and neck.
I have combination skin with hormonal breakouts once a month. My skincare routine for decades (until now) has been rotating, changing by the week, depending on what my skin is needing at the moment. This has been an effective way to manage my skin, but it’s tiresome having to constantly assess my skin’s needs. Plus I have to purchase quite a few different products for both oily and dry skin, making my skincare routine much more expensive than I’d like it to be.
From the very first day I used this essence, my skin improved. Smoother texture was the first thing I noticed. As I continued to use it, my fine lines became significantly less pronounced and my breakouts stopped entirely. Not even exaggerating. This week is the week that I normally break out like crazy. And yet, all week, I haven’t had a single issue. My skin has been perfect for three weeks. Perfect. This never happens to me.
I’m sold. I’m going to be buying more this week, once this little bottle is empty. This essence is as amazing as they say. It’s not just hype. It really does balance the skin. It’s amazing. And yes, you should try it, especially if you have combination skin. This might just be your holy grail, because it’s definitely mine! Ask for a sample the next time you’re in Sephora.
I hate the fermented scent but it doesn’t last that long.
