Need a new Vitamin C serum? Look no further!✨
Y’ALL! I can’t even begin to tell you how much my skin has improved since incorporating this only several days ago! Although my skin has finally been on a slow upward trend in terms of healing dark spots and minimizing pores, the second I added this, that process started increasing SO FAST! I have always wanted to add a vitamin C serum to my routine, but I was always so nervous because I know some can be very potent, hard to keep, too reactive, etc. Like you always should, I did a 24hr patch test prior to introducing the serum, and no irritation whatsoever! SOME BY MI - Galactomyces Pure Vitamin C Glow Serum Along with pure Vitamin C, this serum also contains Galactomyces! If you don’t know, this is a nutrient yeast and byproduct of fermented sake! If you’re familiar with SK-II, it’s the same ingredient that they call their PITERA essence. (SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence)) This serum is jam packed with so many great nutrients for your skin and I have LOVED using it! I store mine in the fridge to avoid oxidizing since that is a very common occurrence with pure Vitamin C, and I apply in the AM and PM after toner, following a moisturizer! Since adding this serum, I have minimized my routine of other essences and serums at the moment so that I am able to see the full effects of the serum, without any reactivity from my other actives. It has given me such glowy skin and my dark spots fade more and more each day I wake up, as well as reducing my dark circles! I ABSOLUTELY recommend!!!!

All the toners and essences I have emptied
I want to name a few products worth trying: LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner so hydrating for winter. You may not need a moisturizer after if used in summer time. Will get a full size some time. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner super comforting just hard to get the juice out at the end with all the flower petals. ORIGINS - Dr. Andrew Weil For Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion Limited Edition I didn’t think I would like it. Looks like a boring product but I then realize my skin was really stabilized during the period I used it. Will I get the full size? Maybe not. But for those of you with reactive skin, give a shot. fresh - Black Tea Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence love love love the smell and the touch on the face. Will consider repurchase. LA MER - The Treatment Lotion a bit oily feeling but hydrating. With the price point I will not get the full bottle. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) I suppose it’s good but after over a year journey with the biggest bottle I’m not going to get another one for now. But if you never had one, try it.

The Unsung Hero of SK-II
So far I’ve reviewed a couple of my favorite products from SK-II (Pitera Essence and Pitera Sheet Masks), but I can’t overlook the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner any longer!! This is a lovely product. It’s labeled as a toner, but I tend to use it a little later in my routine. It’s very moisturizing and very brightening. I use a lighter toner earlier in my routine and then use the clear lotion before my moisturizer in winter when my skin is dryer and before my SPF in summer when my skin is dewier. The clear lotion is so nice because it’s versatile in that way. It adds an extra quenching dose of moisture when I need it and serves as a moisturizer on it’s own when I don’t need that but extra. This product, like the others I’ve reviewed, contains SK-II’s patented Pitera, an active ingredient containing 50 different nutrients like vitamins and minerals. It also contains AHA to help smooth lines and brighten skin. What’s a versatile product you really love? SK-II - Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner

What am I doing wrong in my routine??!!!!
✨EDIT: Although i’m beyond thankful for the advice, I have since then developed a new and successful routine! Please feel free to check my newer posts!✨ I made a post about a week ago detailing my skincare journey, and how I finally felt like I was getting on track again to my pre-covid glowy skin, never having many breakouts... but this week that all went in the garbage. I was so embarrassed to post these photos but I’m seriously so desperate for help to fix this, so I’m going to drop my routine below and hope that some saint out there will give me some advice on what’s going wrong! (my AM/PM routine are both the same) 1. Cleanse with the Murad - Clarifying Cleanser( has a 1.5% salicylic acid concentration) 2. On dampened skin I use the The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5, I would say I use about half a dropper or so full of the serum all over my face— not sure if that’s too little or too much? 3. For my toner I change between ELEMIS - Balancing Lavender Tonerand the SK-II - Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner , using a cotton pad on my acne breakouts and my T-zone 4. I go in with my The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% but I recently found out i am using WAY more than I need to be, going in with about a half dropper full of serum every time I use the product. Thinking that might be a big factor, but I’m still not quite sure... 5. I also occasionally go in with the The Ordinary - ''Buffet''but again, honestly not even sure if I’m using the right amount, I have truthfully been using a full/half dropper of serum from each product I have from The Ordinary. 5. For my moisturizer I am currently using #Bvlgari - Nourishing Face Emulsion[products]#(I ran out of my previous moisturizer so I found a travel size bottle of this I got from a travel pack while flying) Not sure if this is even good tbh but it seems hydrating???? I also use salicylic acid spot treatments/acne patches occasionally before I go to bed to help with brutal whiteheads like the ones above. I know a lot of my breakouts have unfortunately been due to mask wearing, however, I make a point to wash my masks after every use, never rewearing a used mask, I wash my silk sheets/pillowcases OFTEN, I rarely put my phone up to my face to talk, but when I do I sanitize the screen. I feel like I have an entire ritual at this point, however I still deal with these breakouts/redness. I bought these items above because I had heard nothing but stellar reviews, however I am seeing little to no change in my routine, and if anything, it’s all significantly worse than the bare minimum routine I had a year ago before discovering skincare. My confidence hurts and so does my wallet 😭😭😭😭 I am a very critical person of my skin and my appearance, which never mixes well when I suffer from any kind of breakout or inflammation, but if anyone out there has a little advice for me, I would be so appreciative 😌

Best Anti-Aging Moisturizer from Japan – Availab
Since I have lived in Asia for many years before, Korean and Japanese skin care brands have always been one of my favorites products to have on the vanity counter. Their formulas are extra gentle and suitable for my sensitive skin. One of my favorite top brands is SK-II, a homegrown Japanese brand known for its “Miracle Water” or a trademarked fermented yeast ingredient call Pitera. I have combination skin, meaning my skin is dry and sometimes experience flakes on the cheeks, while oil and shine appears on other areas, especially on the forehead, nose and chin. As I am also over 30 years old now, I am incorporating anti-aging products in my skincare regime. One of the best products I have using right now is the SK-II R.N.A.POWER Radical New Age Moisturizer. SK-II - R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream The rich moisturizer is a nourishing complex of pitera with hydrolyzed soy and yeast extracts to make skin firm and radiant from within. I love how the silky texture is perfect for both cold and hot climates, resulting in no sticky residue when applied under make-up. Other ingredients in the mix such as RNArchitect Complex and Niacinamide, a type of vitamin B3 complex, also helps with gettig a more even skin tone and complexion. I usually apply this luxurious cream after traveling and flying to soothe my parched skin. I have also noticed that a week is all it takes for this cream to work its magic in the skin! I can definitely see a noticable glow and smoother texture. To use, take a pearl-sized amount of cream and dot onto forehead, cheeks and chin. Massage evenly over face and neck in outward and upward strokes. Gently press and pat with your palms until completely absorbed. For the price tag of US$235 for a 80ml (2.7oz) jar, it can be quite expensive for a twice-a-day cream, so I use this sparingly in the evening about four times a week although the cream can be used twice a day. Tip: order the cream on SK-II website now and also receive a complimentary one sheet of SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, a 30ml bottle of Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, and a 2.5ml jar of SK-II R.N.A.POWER Cream.

People Told Me Olay Is A Dupe To SKII And I Found...😶😶😶
I'm 23 years old and I recently felt that my skin was losing elasticity, so I decided that it's time for me to tackle premature aging by trying a tightening facial cream. I followed the herd and bought the very popular OLAY - Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream which is known as a cheaper alternative of SK-II - R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream. I have friends that told me that this is the worst facial cream they've ever used, but I didn't believe them until I used it myself and felt utterly disappointed. It has an uneven texture and although it's scented, it smells cheap and gives the impression of being loaded with preservatives. It is also hard to spread and tends to spread unevenly. I happened to pass by SK-II's counter one day and tried the SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age, which was a way better product upon comparison. SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age has a really even texture, spreads easily, and is very moisturizing. I can feel my skin becoming softer and more tender. I bought it straightaway after the beauty assistant tried it on me. SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age managed to maintain the stability of my sensitive skin even during season change, with my skin redness and rash nowhere to be seen. Instead, it left my skin with a translucent glow. So I don't recommend cheaping out on good skincare products with their affordable alternatives which will never offer the same results. Do you know any dupes for SK-II? How do you like Olay? Comment here!🥰🥰

Why Not Save Your Monry💰💰 Dupe Alert🚔 for Expensive Essence!
Since I have sensitive skin, I always spend a lot on essence for my daily skincare. I used to use Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating ConcentrateLANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum until I found L’OREAL Youth Code Ferment Pre-essence L'ORÉAL - Youth Code Serum Intense Daily Treatment After I used both products, I think L’OREAL could be the dupe alert of Lancome.  Since both products are from the L'Oréal Group, the ingredients are from the same place. As for the effect, they have the same effects of brightening skin tone, moisturizing, and repairing. As for the quality, they are both very refreshing and Lancome is a little more sticky. As for the malleability, both of them are easy to absorb. However, L’OREAL is really cheap, which is US$45.00 for 30ml, compared to about US$100.00 for 1 ounce. So if you have skin need of brightening and repairing, I really recommend L’OREAL. But I have to say that Lancome is better to refine pores, moisturize, and moisturize.  Another dupe I recommend is OLAY SPOT FADING TREATMENT OLAY - ProX Spot Fading Treatment For Even Tonewhich can be dupe alert for SKⅡ aura essence SK-II - GenOptics Aura Essence Serum. Because I have some acne marks, I usually use skin products for whitening and acne removal. They both have effects of brightening and whitening because they both have nicotinamide. However, the price of SKⅡis almost six times expensive of OLAY(OLAY- about 30 USD for 40ml, SKⅡaura essence- about 200USD for 50ml). And since SKⅡ has the composition of the picture, it’s more gentle while whitening. As a college student, I think OLAY is a better choice if you have the plan to use it for a long time. There are two dupe products I found these days, if you have the same skin- sensitive and have a need for whitening, maybe you should have a try of these two dupe essence.

Olay VS SKII?Does affordable skin care work?
As a student, sometimes I don't have enough living expenses to choose expensive skincare products. Sometimes I choose a cheaper alternative. This time I'm going to talk about some of the things you care about about how to whiten our skin. The product I want to compare is Olay and SkII, which are very popular online. The price of Olay is about $30, and the capacity of one bottle is 30 ml. The price of SK2 is about $125, which is also 20 milliliters. My skin is yellow because I often stay up late.SK2 has a thick texture. It's not easy to push. Olay, on the other hand, has a transparent texture, which is easier to push away, and absorbs about the same amount the next day. As we all know, the main ingredient of whitening is nicotinamide essence. According to the data, the nicotinamide essence in Olay is twice as high as that in Sk2. The ingredients in both products are: Sepitonic M33,AA2G. But Sk2 also features blemishes, which are more suitable for women over 25.So for the Student Party, I personally think Olay is a cost-effective choice. Finally I want to say my skin quality, my skin quality is mixed oil skin, generally speaking, will not apply a lot of essence fluid, sometimes very stuffy or burst acne. Since the use of Olay, there has been a visible whitening. The essence is not stuffy on the face, can be absorbed by the skin very well. If the skin is sensitive, it can be used in the offline counter, because there are many people who are allergic to nicotinamide. Nicotinamide has a desalting effect on new sunspots, but it may take longer to desalinate spots and acne marks with long pigmentation.

Holy grails! My secret weapons to deal with emergency!!!
There is no superhero in our life to save us, but I believe we all have one or two secret products that can act as heroes to save us from a skin emergency. What I love to share are these two products that have already rescued me for so many times, from meetings to interviews.  Nothing is perfect, but this Out of Trouble Mask ORIGINS - Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem Skinis perfect for me, and it is super timesaving when I have some dead skins to clean or need to fight inflammation or pimples. This mask contains camphor, zinc oxide, and salicylic acid to calm skin, absorb excess oil, and unclog pores. It is especially good for people with combination/oily skin like me, and what I do is just to apply to T-zone and areas that are really rough and flaky, wait for 8 minutes, and wash off using makeup pads. The smell is like camphor ball, but I kinda like it, and the price of it is very nice to my wallet as well. Highly recommend this one to you. Another skincare hero saved me from an emergency is this SK-II face mask.SK-II - Pitera Facial Treatment Mask To be honest, I was shocked by its price but all of my friends recommended this to me, and I have to say that it is worth the praise. It is weird to say but it smells like spit, but the effect is amazing. I put it on after cleansing my face, and wait for 15 minutes, take it off and gently massage the rest essence on the face, then a light moisturizer.  My face is never this bright and hydrated! And my pores also get smaller as well, which is something I would never expect from a sheet mask. I know some people will say the price is beyond the budget. But if you have the chance to try it, or with some really important events coming up, these amazing stuff will not let you down!

My tips to an all-day glowy makeup!
We all love perfect look with a flawless makeup over our skin, but that usually comes with a bunch of products and so many steps to follow, not to mention the time spend every day on this. Actually, a great makeup with a high coverage does not require that many steps and here are some of my easy tips to create a glowy, healthy everyday look.   My face is in combination state and can be very dry sometimes. After cleansing my skin, what I do is to immediately put on a hydrating mask for a few minutes. I choose sheet mask if I have some important events since it provides deeper hydration. But on a daily base, I usually use a gel mask and it is easy to apply and wash off. The one I am using is the Rose Stem Mask from Peter Thomas Roth, a very high-tech brand and I really love this the quenching and hydrating feeling on my face.    After that, I apply my regular serum and sunscreen. What I want to mention is that when season changes, my face gets really dry and sensitive, and I started to use this Bobbi Brown moisturiser and it feels smells so good and does not make my face angry at all. It is so important for me now as a perfect makeup base and I use it every day to avoid crease and dryness. My face also looks brighter after using it because it has vitamin C and E to fight oxidants and pollutants.    The last tip I want to share is very easy and I think many people are already doing this: use hydrating spray on sponge. I like to use my spray on face whenever I need some water to quench my dry skin. The sponge absorbs some spray and mixes with the foundation to make the look more hydrating and adhering, and the makeup lasts longer.   These are some of my tips I like to share with you and please let me know if you have some different makeup secrets to create a flawless look!

My 2020 Top eye product🥇🥇🥇
SK-II - R.N.A. POWER Anti-Aging Eye Cream This is overall a great eye cream that isn’t overpriced. I do love how rejuvenated my eyes look and feel after waking up! It might not get rid of my under eye bags but it definitely keeps my under eye area supple and moisturized. It is the eye cream that leaves your under eyes feeling super moisturized and hydrated. My concealer was also staying very choppy because my under eyes were so dry. This eye cream I like to use it the most during supper. It has a cool effect. It’s creamy and moisturizing. Additionally It soaks in great. This is highly recommended for combinations and oily skin. Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado It might be too heavy for hot summer days but I love it so much in the winter! If you have dry skin you will adore this! A little goes a long way. One thing I love about this product is that it leaves under-eye skin feeling strengthened and replenished. Additionally, it diminishes the appearance of fine lines. It is super hydrating but without messing up your makeup. I do love the texture of it. Silky and smooth application, feels amazing I do skip a couple of days in between uses of this eye cream. My skin is softer, brighter, and visibly refreshed in the morning. However, I have to say that it is so heavy that daily use is almost too much. At first, it is very creamy but after you rub it, it becomes watering. ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix It's my holy grail eye cream, and it really works. I've always had sleeping problems and occasionally stay late because of work. This eye cream has helped me a lot with my dark circles, and fine lines. This is one of the must have products in my cosmetic bag. This is the eye concentrate I use all seasons through out the year. I have very sensitive eyelids, I have had many eye creams as they are irritating to my sensitive eyes. This doesn't bother me or give me rash or milias. And I feel comfortable wearing it both during the day and at night before sleep. Amazing product! What's your fav eye product? Pls let me know👇

If You Have Never Used These Products, Go Get Them Now! 👉👉
I have combo dry skin during spring and summer, and combo oil skin during fall and winter. I have a little bit acne. My biggest skincare concern is aging. After using so many skincare products in my life, I have listed a couple of my favorite products of all-time, and some products I will never ever use again. This is the first part of this long list, so the following products are my FAV. If you have the same skin type&concerns, don't hesitate! Just Buy Them! 💕💕💕💕 SK-II - R.N.A. POWER Anti-Aging Eye Cream It is good for girls above 25 who want to life up and firm their skin around the eyes. It is creamy, easy to spread out and be absorbed. You can use it both in the morning and at night.  Helena Rubinstein Powercell Youth Grafter - The Eye Care This is the second one I bought. It ensured the health and stability of the skin around my eyes. I use it at night, and I normally massage my skin until the eye cream has been fully absorbed.  CLARINS - Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate I use it in the morning and at night. It can be absorbed easily. I think it is great for all skin types. It is not sticky at all. It helps to improve the later absorption of facial creams. This is my go-to serum during seasonal changes. I got pimples when my skin was unstable under huge pressures from work. But my pimples got so much better after I used up a bottle of this serum.  LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum Comparing to the eye serum in this product line, this face serum works way better. My skin got significantly smoother than it used to be. This texture is like egg white, so very light and easy to be absorbed.  Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil It can remove your makeup completely. Definitely a MUST-BUY cleansing oil. I love this product forever. And I will consistently stock up on. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm For combo skin, cleansing balm is definitely the 1st choice. Comparing to the other cleaning balms, this is the most refreshing one. And it can remove even the toughest makeup! Have you tried these babes before? Let me know 🥰

$22 Vs. $75! Dupe Or Nope?🤔🤔🤔
SK-II - Facial Treatment Cleanserand Olay White Radiance Cellscience Cleanser. Both are amino acid cleansing foams with great reviews for being gentle and sensitive skin friendly. First thing, I have combination and sensitive skin. SK-II - Facial Treatment Cleanser$75 for 109ml It's quite expensive for me 😑😑 It has a lubricating texture just like butter and a pleasant faint rose scent. It doesn't irritate the skin and it has a lightweight and soft texture, but it doesn't lather well. It's sensitive skin friendly and doesn't cause any irritation. You need to use quite a bit of it but it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and not at all dry after it's washed off without leaving any residue. It cleanses just moderately, with the eyeliners only partially removed. I usually use it as a morning cleanser. I will not repurchase this because of the steep price. It's quite easy to find a much more affordable alternative. For example- Olay White Radiance Cellscience Cleanser-$21.74 for 120g It's cheap and worth its price. I really like it. It has a soft creamy texture but it doesn't lather well. It's gentle, not irritable and sensitive skin friendly! It leaves the skin refreshed, squeaky clean and not at all dry, but subsequent skincare products are required. It cleanses just moderately, so it's also suitable for morning cleansing. It's very affordable and the experience is worth more than the price. I've been enjoying using it the whole summer. However, it cleanses just moderately, so I personally think that it's more suitable for morning cleansing, starting the day gently without irritation. Needless to sayt, SK-II is a good cleanser. But it's not worth buying at such a high price. Whats your thoughts on the 2 products, Share with me!

My Cleanser Awards
I have acne prone combination skin, so I really need cleansers that leave skin very clean and not overly drying.  1. SK-II - Facial Treatment Cleanser ,  $75 for 109 ml I'd like to use the product as AM cleanser because skin does not feel clean as compared to other cleansers. It is not suitable for oil skin. I will not repurchase it only if it's on sale. 2. LA MER - LA MER The Cleansing Foam, $85 for 125ml It's my holy grail cleanser! It makes my skin feel clean without the tightness feeling. A little bit goes a long way. The only downside is the price.  If you want to invest in a high end cleanser this one is definitely worth your money. 3. ESTĒE LAUDER - Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy 2-in-1 Cleansing Foam, $30 for 125ml It can also work as scrub.  It created a deeply cleansing lather and washed clean. But I felt a little dry recently. Maybe it works better for oil skin. 4. CHANEL La Mousse Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream-To-Foam, $45 for 150ml Pink for combination skin and blue for dry skin.It builds a nice lather and it lasts a long time as a little goes a long way. But the La mer one is more moisturizing.  5. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay CleanserREN Clarifying clay cleanser, $32 for 150ml It really impressed me!  It doesn't foam up but it leaves my face clean and smooth.  When massaging into your skin it feels warm moisturizing.It does help clean pores and banish acne scars. Worth trying if you suffer from oily or blemish-prone skin. 6. CLARINS - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed for Normal/Combination Skin Types,$25 for 140ml This felt so nice on my skin and lathered up into a nice foam. A little gose a long way and it leaves my face squeaky clean. The only thing is that it makes me feel a little dried out. 7. fresh - Soy Face Cleansing Milk, $15 for 50ml It’s my go to. Removes makeup and mascara with small amount. However, if you have dry skin at all it really dries it out. 8. Dr. Hauschka - Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream,$23 for 50ml My skin feels supple and hydrated and it does leave an oily film that is melting in as you pat your skin dry.You are supposed to mix the paste with water and press into your skin. I aways feel that it leaves my pore super in the morning after using it last night.

Holy grail SKII & LANEIGE
Two things I absolutely cannot life without is my SKII facial treatment Essence I’ve been using since I was 18 & the Laniege lip sleeping mask. Skii facial treatment Essence is a little bit on the pricey side but in my opinion worth every dollar. It has visually soften the texture on my face, help with fullness and reduces my pores! I used the Laneige sleeping mask, for the day and night time. It’s a formula that just works and keeps your lips hydrated all day!

Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence)
SK-II-Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence)
$70 vs $235 who is the winner
$70 vs $235 who is the winner
CHANEL HYDRA BEAUTY NUTRITION-For Dry Skin $70 As the title of the cream, it is great for dry skin type. The cream is from a Chanel skincare line called HYDRA BEAUTY. Researching reveals the power of its iconic flower, the camellia, and its exclusive ultra-hydrating active ingredient, which is Camellia Alba PFA. This is the key active ingredient helps skin restore and maintain optimal moisture levels in the cells. The texture of the nutrition is really soft and creamy, it helps my skin to be smooth and not cakey. I think the nutrition is a good choice for spring and summer time. The package come with an applier, a cute white flat spoon. Using the applier to get the amount of cream, it is cleaner than use fingers to get cream. Easy to apply and easy to absorpt. SK-II R.N.A Power Anti-Aging Face Cream 80ml $235 I got this cream from my mom. She gave me the small pack and asked me to try if I like it. The best-selling anti-aging cream restores skin suppleness and elasticity with intense hydrating. Suppler skin, less visible wrinkles and smoother texture are the three key effects. I really feel that my skin became firmness, smooth and hydrating. With these great effects, the texture of the cream is not heavy. Lightweight with soft and velvety texture is easily absorbed by the skin. After I apply the cream, the cream melts into my skin. It works for every season, summer or winter. After I used for few days, I could feel that my skin was so smooth. It helps my makeup would not look caky anytime. The magic is that the cream not only gives enough moisture, also gives the skin a fresh and non-sticky feeling. I already finished the cream, love it so much! For this competition, SK II wins! Recommend to all skin type.

Awhile ago, I decided to jump
Awhile ago, I decided to jump on the hype and bought the skii Piteria Essence 💛Claims:Brighter glow, prevent spots, less visible wrinkles, smoother texture, and suppler skin. 💛Ingredients:Piteria -A bio-ingredient containing over 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids to condition skin's natural functions 🌸Thoughts: I expected that if I spend more than $150 on one product, the product should live up to the expectations that they claim. There are so many people who love this product and swear that it is the Holy grail. To me.. nothing! It doesn’t do anything for me. The scent is a little weird as well. The texture is very light. 💛🌸💛🌸💛🌸 huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence 🌸Claims: A concentrated brightening essence with ingredients that protect skin from polluted environments and stress. It delivers a refined, bright, and radiant look. 💛Ingredients: Cactus Extract / Prickly Pear Seed Oil- Moisturizes skin / Antioxidant Niacinamide - Brightens skinOdeetoxTM Inhibits melanin / Antioxidant / Anti-pollution Glutathione Improves skin tone / Detoxifies skin Bisabolol-Brightens / soothes skin 🌸Thoughts: This has a texture of a serum or an ampoule rather than an essence. It has a very strong fresh floral scent. The scent is very pretty but it lingers for a long time. That’s is a no no for me, since I dislike strong scent on my skincare products. I didn’t like this essence because I don’t see any difference in my skin texture after using it for two weeks. I am going to continue to try this for a little longer; if I don’t see anything, I will stop.

Over a month in the making, he
Over a month in the making, here are my final thoughts on the SK-II facial essence… PRODUCT: SK-II Facial Treatment Essence STATUS: It’s a no from me. PRICE: $225 CAD / $179 USD SIZE: 160 mL WHERE: Sephora I have been using this essence every evening for 32 consecutive days. Immediately after cleansing, I would pour a dime sized amount into my palm, press my palms together and then pat the essence onto my face. After that, I would continue on with my various PM regimes. The scent is somewhere between musty towels and dirty dishwater. Which would be fine with me if it were effective but, as far as results go, I saw none. I honestly cannot credit a single change in my skin to this product. I loved the story behind SK-II but was disappointed by the (lack of) results. Maybe if I were soaking in the essence all day long (as was the case with the sake factory workers) it would have had an impact on my skin. I’d love to stick it in a spray bottle and test misting my face frequently throughout the day but, given the price, I won’t be trying that anytime soon.
