Highlights
What It IsA powerful treatment to visibly soften texture, reduce the appearance of dark spots and fine lines due to dryness, even the look of skin’s tone, and enhance visible radiance.
What Else You Need to KnowThe story begins with a chance observation at a sake brewery in Japan where scientists noticed the elderly brewers had wrinkled faces but extraordinarily youthful-looking hands. Intensive searches began out of millions of yeast strains and studies were conducted on hundreds of fermentation conditions. Now every drop of Pitera™ is produced by cultivating the one exclusive yeast strain under the most stringent conditions that remain SK-II’s most valuable trade secret. This iconic essence’s formula has then remained essentially unchanged for almost 40 years as the full efficacies of Pitera™ have not yet been uncovered; and until now, SK-II is continuing to discover new things it can do. A miracle like no other, Pitera™ is pure power of nature harnessed by advanced technology.

Seriously! 💢💢💢Clinique Can Do Better Than This!
Seriously! 💢💢💢Clinique Can Do Better Than This!
Hello🌞You must know the importance of cleaning your face. I have combo-oil skin, not sensitive. I have acne-prone skin, and I have some dark spots. So I started building up my tolerance for acid since long-time ago. Today, I want to talk about my fav and meh products!   pixi - Glow Tonic Concentration 🍋🍋🍋 How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face  It is alcohol-free, which means it is a glycolic acid product that is very good for sensitive skin. It also formulated with witch-hazel and Aesculus to mitigate the irritation. My face does not feel dry after using it. It is good at lock in hydration. So dry skin will really like it. Also, if you don't have any experience using acid, this is a good beginning. I have used half of the bottle. It does not have a strong effect on getting rid of whiteheads, but it can be a good exfoliating product. It is really worth the price. I always repurchase when it is on sale.  SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) Concentration🍋🍋🍋🍋 How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face It includes Lactic acid, Malic acid, Salicylic acid. It is a combination of those acid, and it is for secondary cleanse. Comparing with Pixi, this one has more exfoliating power. It is better for combo oil and oily skin. If your skin is thinner, I recommend you only use it twice or three times a week. After using it, my face feels a bit dry. So it is good to use with hydrating products. It is quite expensive though. If you don't have enough budget for cleansing product, I won't recommend this one to you.  Cle De Peau Essential Correcting Refiner How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face  It only has Succinic acid, which makes it different from the previous products. I feel like it has a high alcohol concentration. I can even smell the alcohol after I apply it on my face. But it actually feel good on my face. I feel refreshed after using it. It is a good choice for morning routine. But make sure you are not allergic to alcohol. It is very expensive.  CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 2 How to Use It: Apply on cotton pads, gently rub the face  It has an obvious smell of alcohol. My face felt burned after using it. I really don't like it. I am using it to wipe my table now. It actually works quite well. BTW I don't like this design. It is so inconvenient to pour it out. The mouth is way too big, to the point I think you can even drink it... Have you used any of these product? How do you like it? 💞

Products I've tried to treat acne....
Products I've tried to treat acne....
I have combination-oily and sensitive skin. I was also acne-prone for 7 years and I still have acne scars. I'll be sharing some products I've tried before. 💦Facial Cleanser -Chanel La Mousse Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream-To-Foam A gentle, paste-like facial cleanser suitable for sensitive skin and evening use. Rub to create a foamy lather before use or use it with a facial cleansing massager. -CAUDALIE - Instant Foaming Cleanser A morning facial cleanser. Those with sensitive and fragile skin can consider cleansing in the evening. 💦Essence SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) It increases skin immunity if used long-term. It also won't cause acne breakouts and is super refreshing! It's effective in lightening acne scars but does nothing for pockmarks. LA MER - The Treatment Lotion A small amount is enough for the whole face. I find it a little sticky for me and I don't feel like it adds anything to my skincare routine. SK-II - Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner As a double cleanser before using a toner, I don't suggest daily use for sensitive, acne-prone skin as I don't feel it doing much at all. Albion Essential Skin Conditioner It cleared acne effectively at the beginning. But somehow it didn't work as well after a while. I still use it as a lotion mask sometimes. SHISEIDO - Eudermine Revitalizing Essence Strongly not recommended! It has a really sticky texture and causes acne breakouts. 💦Serum SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate I highly recommend you to use this after a toner. It's non-greasy and it won't cause breakouts. It keeps your skin healthy if you use it long term! I think it has a restorative effect. LA MER - The Concentrate It repairs damaged skin and lightens acne scars, but I won't suggest everyday use as it causes bumps. Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate It also features restoration effects and I normally use it after applying Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. I'll squeeze three drops onto my palm, then rub it between my palms until it's warm and massage it onto my face. It also doesn't cause acne breakouts! You'll find your skin feeling rejuvenated the next day. 💦Facial Cream SK-II - R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream I think it's too thick and heavy for oily skin during summer, but it's suitable for winter use. It's also suitable for acne-prone skin. LA MER - The Moisturizing Soft Cream LA MER - The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream I suggest the soft cream for winter use. It has a great scent and it won't cause acne breakouts. However, you'll find your skin oily the next day. I suggest the gel cream for summer use, but those with severe acne-prone skin can skip this step.

LA MER - The Treatment Lotion SIZE: 5 oz/ 150 mL $195.00 CAD Another star product of LA MER. This is also one of their best selling products. This is a fast-absorbing treatment targeting dry, normal and combination. My mom is a sensitive and she finds it very gentle on her face as well. The texture is much thicker than most in the market. However, it is Super moisturizing without the stickiness and not sticky at all. I use it after cleansing, and before applying Serum and moisturizer. I feel like this is an essential product! I always have it in stock and use it when my skin is in worst conditions. It’s really hydrated and helped calm my irritated skin, reduce redness and provide some hydration. I also noticed that when I added this. All my serums and moisturizers and creams seemed to work so much better. It really sets up the skin to receive the proceeding steps and absorb the product fully. This bottle is almost empty and I’ll keep purchasing this product. Definitely top of my list for years and highly recommended. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) SIZE: 2.5 oz/ 75 mL $129.00 CAD This SKII is a powerful treatment for normal, dry and combination to reduce the appearance of dark spots and fine lines due to dryness. It’s a very lightweight liquid. The main ingredient Pitera is the patent of SKII that contains over 50 micronutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and natural acids to condition skin. As a combination, I really love this lotion. This is my third bottle. I use bare hand to put on face. It looks just like water but it’s magic water with all the ingredients that helps make your face hydrated, smooth, texture color of the skin more even. After 2 years of using it, my skin appears more radiant and is noticeably softer to the touch. It's like getting a mini facial at home, and a little goes a long way. If you donot mind the high price too much then it is worth it. It works, overnight skin becomes smooth and radiance, and after a few days it looks tighten. Pretty sure using this resulted in my cystic acne disappearing. I have to say, these two Worth Every Penny!

My nighttime routine is consta
My nighttime routine is constantly changing to address my specific skin issues. I just use exfoliating products on Sunday-Wednesday and the rest is just nourishing and hydrating routine like this one I'm going to show you. This is the best for my skin’s protective barrier to stay intact in a healthy place.⁣ ⁣ After I double cleanse my skin, I use Odacite Rose + Neroli Hydra-Vitalizing Treatment Mist in place of a toner. It offers hydration with Aloe Vera, restores balance to my skin with Rose Water, and is alcohol-free. This divinely scented mist instantly brings comfort and relaxation.⁣ ⁣ Then I use SKII Facial Treatment Essence to help add another layer of hydration to my skin. With proper hydration I feel it's better able to support the direct benefits of my serum and moisturizer.⁣ ⁣ The next step is where the most active items come into play. I apply them from the thinnest to the thickest.⁣ ⁣ The first serum is Paulas Choice 10% Niacinamide Booster as the texture is very watery. Niacinamide increases the production of ceramides, keeping the skin strong and preventing Trans Epidermal Water Loss at night.⁣ ⁣ I then go on to apply NIOD Survival 0, which is designed to be used at night to give the skin consistent protection against oxidative damage, infrared and blue light, smog and stress. This thin emulsion contain a whole host of Amino Acids, multiple forms of Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane and Jojoba Seed Oil that are responsible for all manner of skin health.⁣ ⁣ Sometimes when I need extra hydration I also use The Bath Box HA Serum before moisturizer as it has a very thick texture.⁣ ⁣ To maximize absorption and lock in moisture I use Odacite Night Time Antioxidants Repair Serum mixed with 2-3 drops of their targeted Serum Concentrate. The Serum has a creamy consistency with antioxidants-rich ingredients that work to protect the skin from premature aging. This combo soothes my skin, making it feel soft and plumped without clogging pores.⁣ ⁣ The last step is Odacite Ba+S Eye Contour Serum Concentrate for my eyes. I really love this one because the oils hydrates that gentle area around my eyes and doesn't irritate it at all.

SK-ll - Facial Treatment Essen
SK-ll - Facial Treatment Essence 3.5/5 💮 Claims to give radiance, supple and prevent spots- Give radiance: Yes! / Suppler skin: Yes / Prevent spots: No Texture - Like water Scent - Cosmetic Parabens - Yes I’ve been using it consistently since I got it about 8 months ago. I really enjoy fermented ingredients in skincare and I was drawn to its short ingredients list. SKII has a secret ingredient, the fermented one, called Pitera, I really wanted to see what it was about. It gave me a glow, moisture, radiance the first time I used it and I was so impressed. I woke up with clear, plump and glowy skin! I kept using it and maybe my skin got used to it but I didn’t see the same results. I tried spacing my uses out and that made it a little better but not much different. I believe this is more targeted at aging skin which wouldn’t suit perfectly to mine. It claims to reduce appearance of wrinkles and prevent sun spots which isn’t a problem that I have. So I believe it did what it could for me and it was to give me a brighter look, plumped me up a bit and gave me moisture. What I love about it is that it dries so fast, the skin drinks up this stuff like it’s nothing. I guess it’s formulated like that but I really enjoyed that about it even though it feels like I’m putting water on my face at first! In the long-run, this didn’t do much for my skin, therefore, the average review score. I really wanted to love this, but what it did for my skin I don’t really love it. I believe it’s one of a kind product and understand why it would work for someone else and I don’t think the hype around it is false, it just didn’t wow me. Too many people around me and others swear by this so it can’t possibly not be good, just not for my skin specifically! Purchased at Sephora - $99 (75ml)

If You Ever Want To Buy These Products, Think Twice, Trust Me👉👉
If You Ever Want To Buy These Products, Think Twice, Trust Me👉👉
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 second part of this long list, these are the products I regret so much for buying. 😫😫😫 I suggest y'all to think twice if you before your make the decision.  LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating Concentrate It claims that it can reduce wrinkles and dark circles. But I don't really see any effect after using it for a while. I think you can definitely find better eye serums at this price level.  BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil This is too oily for me. It does help reducing acne scars. But when I use it with face cream, I get pimples.  LA MER - The Concentrate I expect it to help my acne scars to recover quickly. However, I can't see any effects. This is definitely not worth the price. Don't buy it! My experience with it was awful. The design is also bad. When you almost used up this bottle, it is extremely hard to get the last few drops out.  SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) My skin feels so dry after using it. I think it is more suitable for people with very oily skin. My face got so dry during the day for three days in a row after using it. I personally like more moisturizing products.  LA MER - Moisturizing Cream This face cream needs to be emulsified before you use it. This extra step is quite complex. I didn't really see the "magic power", which was described by so many bloggers. I just think this is so oily and greasy. It cannot be absorbed and I get a bunch of pimples.  GUERLAIN - L'Or 24K Gold Radiance and Hydrating Primer This primer works so poorly. A good sunscreen probably has a better effect than this one. It is very light, can be absorbed easily. But it feels more like a serum than a primer. It is also not moisturizing enough for me. So it does not lay a good foundation for my later makeup routine.  URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray I only use it when my foundation is too heavy, or I have used too much setting power. I think setting power just works better than setting spray. So it is not useful for me at all. That's all I have. I hope this is helpful to you. Have you ever bought something that is useless? 👎 Share your story with me! I love to hear from y'all.
