What It Is: A lightweight essence formulated with SK-II's proprietary ingredient, PiteraWhat It Does: Quenches dry skin và brightens skin immediatelyWho It's For: Great for all skin types

Upon my first introduction lớn the essence category back in 2011 as a budding beauty editor, I was less than impressed. Most of them look lượt thích clear water, so I was convinced it was the snake oil of skin care. Is it a toner? No. Is it a chemical exfoliant? No. Well, what could a liquidy hàng hóa devoid of acids really bởi vì for my face? Then, I was gifted a bottle of the iconic SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, which most beauty editors openly fawn over.

It looks lượt thích water — just lượt thích the rest — but this formula is packed with the proprietary Pitera complex. Pitera was discovered when scientists realized that Japanese sake makers had ageless hands. Now, a similar yeast & fermentation process is used lớn create the vitamin & mineral-rich ingredient that stars in many SK-II products.

For me, this essence immediately gets rid of that tight feeling my cleanser leaves behind. I notice that my brown skin looks instantly brighter. To lớn apply, I pour about a teaspoon of the essence into my palm then I rub my hands together & pat it on my face và neck. Repeat. This sản phẩm is like a booster for every sản phẩm you layer on top. Serums sink in faster. Creams seem lớn moisturize longer. And it takes the sting out of chemical exfoliants, too. I've combined it with hundreds of products, and I've never had a bad reaction.


I can honestly say it's one of the only beauty products that I'm still using 10 years after I was first introduced khổng lồ it (this & Dove body toàn thân wash make my very short G.O.A.T. List). I can't say that I still look lượt thích my 21-year-old self… it's not a time machine. But during the brief times, when I've slacked on my SK-II essence habit, my skin didn't have the same radiance & would dry out faster. There's a reason why this essence has made our 2020 Best of Beauty list, yet again.
