SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

What is it: 

Containing more than 90% Pitera, this much loved miracle water is a must-have for healthy, radiant skin. It helps maintain the skin's natural renewal cycle to its optimum condition to allow skin nourishment. It also works to balance the skin's pH and sebum secretion, so oily and dry areas are properly moisturised.

My thoughts:

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is the very first SK-II product that I have tried from SK-II.

I like how SK-II Facial Treatment Essence helps to reduce the size of my pores and reduce the redness on my face. Whenever I use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence after my regular toner/lotion and before applying any essence, I wake up with plumped skin. The beauty advisors over at SK-II have also advised me to apply SK-II Facial Treatment Essence prior to applying essence as it allows the essence to absorb into the skin better.

A few days ago, I switched to a new cleanser that was sent to me for review and it  broke me out. I don't usually have breakouts, not even during the time of the month so you could imagine how big a fuss it caused. They can't even be covered with BB cream! ): Hence, that night I applied SK-II Facial Treatment Essence after my regular toner/lotion, had SK-II Facial Treatment Mask leave on for about 20 minutes before applying my regular moisturizer. And voila!, those bumps subsided the next day!

What is it:
The new SK-II Cellumination Essence EX takes a great formula and makes it better with the new Pixel WhiteTM whitening ingredient. Improve your skin from the cellular level and experience highly defined, aura bright skin in just 4 weeks.

My thoughts:

In summary, SK-II Cellumination Essence EX glides onto my skin really well. I like how it gives the pearlescent effect and make my skin look brighter and more radiant.

SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge EX

What is it:

This daily moisturiser is infused with a unique active whitening ingredient, De-Melano P3C, that works to balance your skin tone from within to unleash your skin's translucent aura.

My thoughts:

I have previously tried out a sample of SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge EX and liked it. You don't really need a lot of product. The size of a 10-cent coin is sufficient for my entire face.

The texture of SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge EX reminds me a lot of Sleeping Packs. It has a consistency in between that of a gel's and a cream's. I like how it moisturizes my skin. On top of that, it helps to brighten up my skintone. But the best of all is - it doesn't make my skin dry like how some whitening or brightening products do.    

SK-II Whitening Source Revival Mask

What is it:

Whitening Source Derm-Revival Mask contains DMTBlocker, an advanced complex containing Pitera™, Vitamin C derivative and Niacinamide; Inositol, a skin conditioning agent. SK-II's unique stretchable mask is designed to hold the maximum amount of juice and to deliver it effectively to the skin. The action of stretching the mask activates its multiple layers, creating a delivery system that continuously drives the juice deep into the epidermis. The pressure of the mask against the skin also helps to enhance delivery of the whitening actives

My thoughts:

Similiar to SK-II Facial Treatment mask, I found the cotton sheet mask of SK-II Whitening Source Revival mask sheet a tad too big for my face. The cotton sheet is thicker than regular sheet masks but it adheres onto my skin well, probably due to the fact that it was soaked with a lot of essence. I mean it when I said a lot of essence. In fact, there was still some leftover essence in the mask pack even after I used it to apply on my cheeks and neck.

Although my skin was more moisturized and the size of my pores looked smaller after using SK-II Whitening Source Revival mask, I didn't observe any visible whitening or brightening effects which was a little disappointing especially when it says whitening on the packaging. On top of that, I experienced dry skin for a couple of days after  using SK-II Whitening Source Revival mask. If you were to ask me, I would say go for SK-II Facial Treatment mask instead.
