SK-ii Facial Treatment Essence Review

by - September 03, 2017

SK-ii is a Japanese brand of skincare products and famous for the ingredient "Pitera" in its product. The most popular one is SK-ii Facial Treatment Essence, which contain more than 90% Pitera. Pitera is full of vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids that work together to allow the skin's natural surface rejunevation process to function at its prime. 

Introduction of Pitera
Started when SK-ii scientist found the astounding sight of the wrinkled faces of aged sake brewers contrasting their soft youthful hands. They surmised that the secret must lie in the yeast that the brewers’ hands were in constant contact with during the sake fermentation process.The scientists spent over a decade to isolate the single yeast strain that held the secret to crystal clear skin. It was the birth of a miracle, a beauty revolution that would soon come to be known as Pitera or find more details about Pitera at

It has 75ml, 160ml, 230ml, and 330ml version. The one I have is 230ml one. The packaging looks so classy, lux with frosted glass base and metal cover at the top bottle. But because the packaging made from glass, I'm afraid it could be broken if it falls and the essence will all over the floor, so be carefull.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Description

How to use:
There is two popular methods. One is to pour it into a cotton pad and and pressing gently into skin until the essence has soaked in (matching with the website). Two is pour it into your hands and pat it into your face (suggestion from another beauty bloggers). I found the first method is more hygiene. But the second method is lessens waste the essence, but not too hygiene. I used the first and second method depend my mood. (●´ω`●)

The essence is a transparent liquid, and feels like clear water, refreshing face when using it, and gentle too. It's so gentle that I could use it under eye area! In fact, I tried another essence and found it  irritate my under eye area. SK-ii Facial Treatment Essence get absorbed within seconds, and no sticky feeling, love it! It got quite strong natural scent, not bad for me, but maybe for some people its disturbing. 

Results :
I'm using SK-ii Facial Treatment Essence near 2 months. I found it amazingly make my face looks brighter naturally, pores looks smaller, moisturized my skin, firming, and fade my acne scars, and control my oily face.

Time to Start:
The beauty assistant in SK-ii counter told me the right age to start using SK-ii Facial Treatment Essence is 18 years old or more. Basicly SK-ii facial treatment essence has anti aging effects because of the Pitera effect. 

-Pores looks smaller
-Makes skin looks brighter naturally
-Moisturized my skin, soft, and firming
-Fade acne scars
-Not purging on me 

 -So expensive for me, its IDR 1,999,000 for 230ml at SK-ii counter when normal price
-Not travel friendly

4,5/5 (because its so expensive)

All my opinion above are based on my personal experience. It may work different with other people though, so use it with your own risk!
