The SK-II (sk2) Facial Treatment Essence and Mask was purchased in Hong Kong during my trip back in April 2016. I’ve heard a lot about this product and never tried it until recently. After 3-4 months of usage, I really enjoyed both the essence and the mask.
The essence is applied after my cleanser and before my serums at night. I use this in the morning and at night and over a course of a week, you can visibly see the the difference. Skin is clearer and smoother and a more even skin tone. I’ve found that it also helps redness around my nose and cheeks as well. You currently cannot purchase SK-II products at major retails but this product can be purchased at local Asian imported shops. In Vancouver, a few places in Crystal Mall and in Aberdeen Centre does sell it. As for authenticity I’ve never purchased from them before. You can also find this online at Nordstrom or if you are traveling to Asia, there is usually an SK-II counter at duty free as well.
This product does have a slight fragrant that not everyone might love. It’s a bit like a damp towel. If you can overlook the fragrant then this product has worked wonders for me and perhaps it will work for you as well.
If you can get your hands on this product for trial I would recommend it since the price point is quite high for a skincare purchase.
The SK II Face Mask
This is the best face mask I have ever used. After usage, your skin will look brighter, plump with moisture and you just look like you’ve walked out of a spa. It works wonders and is a definite pick me up after a long day to give your skin that recharge it needs. I usually I apply this for about 20-30 minutes. There is a lot of essence left inside the sleeve as well so if you want you can apply it on your face and let it rest. Overall, this is been by far the best mask I’ve ever used to date.
Ease of Travel with SK II
The essence comes in a glass bottle – if you purchase this at Duty Free there is a special size that comes in a plastic bottle instead so it’s a lot lighter. Otherwise the glass bottle is definitely not great for traveling and I have yet to figure out how to travel with this essence.
Thanks for reading and hopefully it’s provided you with a bit more insight about the product.
