The two products I’m about to show you are definitely a splurge, but when and if you do decide to take the plunge with them—I want to show you why I think they’re The Dynamic Duo when it comes to dehydrated and aging winter skin. If your skin is 35 & up…you need to see these!
One of the things that makes SK-II’s products unique (and worthy of their prices), is a magical ingredient they call Pitera—and the Facial Treatment Essence is loaded with it. (About 90%, actually!) Pitera is derived from a strain of yeast and consists of vital amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and organic acids that encourage the skin to rejuvenate itself in every area. By applying the Facial Treatment Essence daily—it can improve skin hydration, provide radiance, smoothness, and a youthful suppleness that aging skin hasn’t seen in a while. Starting at $100, it’s not a cheap date—but it takes your face on a healthful journey. Give it a full 28 days and you’ll see what I’m talking about! If you had to pick just one luxury product from SK-II to have in your beauty arsenal, this would be the one I recommend.
It is absolutely insane to me how this mask is able to give such immediate gratification! I think of it as the Facial Treatment Essence on steroids, because it bombards your skin with all the Pitera benefits of the Essence, but you can see the results the second you remove the sheet mask. In just 20 minutes, it packs a serious punch of moisture and vitality for me—going where no mask has ever gone before, and the radiance it leaves behind gives me a glow that makes it look like I just spent the day at the spa receiving frou-frou treatments. ($90 for a set of six one-time use masks.)
