The history of SK-II (if you’re not familiar) goes back to the 1970’s when a clever scientist in Japan noticed how incredibly beautiful and soft the hands were of women working in a Japanese saké brewery.
This got him thinking and researching and after many years of investigating a team of scientists were able to isolate the natural, nutrient-rich liquid which they called Pitera.
In 1980, the Japanese branch of Max Factor took notice of the remarkable results of Pitera and acquired rights to the ingredient, but it wasn’t till 1995 that SK-II really started to make people sit up and take notice, and within five years was the top selling cosmetics product in japan.
I have been harping on quite alot of late about my skincare dilemmas but I am sure I am not the only person self-conscious and worried about their skin. My favourite SK-II product is the Facial Treatment Essence (if you are a beauty nut you will definitely have heard of this one).
It isn’t a cheap bottle by any means, but its definitely worth it, to be used after your toning step in your beauty regime to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. I know those are typical beauty “buzz” words but they really do apply.
I only use mine when my skin is getting dry, and you only need a little bit in the palms of your hand that you then press gently onto your face and neck, as the Essence will be absorbed by your skin very quickly. I honestly do see results, reduction of those little patches of dry skin that I get around my mouth and brow and brighter looking skin in general.
If you Google Facial Treatment Essence you will see thousands of great reviews just like mine, and there is a reason for it. There is a science and many years of hard work behind this product and that is something that I can get behind!
