    This review is from: SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 150ml (Health and Beauty)

    Based on the recommendation of a friend who has used sk II products for years and who have tried all top brands, I decided to give SK II a try. I’ve used most of the major brands myself. Didn’t like La Mer (too rich, and need to warm up the cream in hand, no visible improvements to skin). I got the Essence, SK II cellumination cream and Signs Eye cream to start with, and did a comparison between these and Shiseido products that I was using daily.

    My daily care procedure:

    1. wash w/ Shiseido Benefiance cleansing foam
    2. tone w/ Shiseido Balancing Softener
    3. apply eye cream and face cream

    During the 1st wk.
    1. on my left face and forehead: SK II Essence and creams
    2. on my right face: Shiseido Bioperformance Advanced Super Revitalizer and Shisedio Benefiance Concentrated Anti-wrinkle eye cream

    And then 2nd wk, I reversed the side. Now I have used it for a year, here is what I observed:

    Essence:
    Pro’s: I literally looked 5 years younger immediately after applying it. My skin looked like soaked in moisture and nutrients, supple and soft. Fine lines disappeared. The effect gradually wore off during the day.
    Con’s: when my skin is irritated, it gets sensitive to the Essence. But it only happened once or twice in a year or so.
    Proper way of application: though the leaflet in the product tells you how to use it, it was the sales person at store showed me the trick: need to press it firmly with your palm and finger tips into your face until it is fully absorbed. So, it is basically press, press, press, press…

    Cellumination: looks like semi boiled egg white, feels like between gel and cream
    Pro’s: very light textured, absorb super easy; seems to lighten the dark spots and even my skin tone. it also hydrates very well which is surprising for such light textured gel cream
    Con’s: when my skin is irritated, it gets sensitive to the cream. But it only happened once or twice in a year or so.

    Signs eye cream
    Pro’s: very light textured and absorb super easy; it seemed to reduce the puffiness under my eye

    My skin type is normal w/ oily t-zone, but seems to be occasionally very sensitive. When it happened, I just stop using the Cellumination or Essence for a few days, then I would be fine again.

    In evaluating the effects, I tried to eliminate placebo bias (but not sure I was able to be 100% neutral due to my human flaws). The immediate effectiveness of SK II seemed to be there, though I am not sure about the long term. For now, I am happy w/ it and will continue to use it.

    Where to buy: I bought mine at a department store. Con’s: price is higher at department store even after promotion (they normally give you a full size Signs eye cream if you spend more than $350); pro’s: authenticity, service, a cool machine to test your skin condition that you can go back, retest and compare results.
