The SK-II facial essence has long been a secret for skincare lovers. I’ve seen women with the most beautiful skin both in real life and on YouTube credit their appearance to the SK-II essence, consistently for many years. I tried a sample of this once and really did love it but I never repurchased it because I had to get through my essence stash (from NARS, Tatcha and Benefit). I always recall coming back to the SK-II essence because there was something special about the way this absorbed so beautifully into the skin and leaves behind a noticeably healthier skin feel and appearance.
At the end of the day, this is hard to recommend because the essence is one of those products that you have to use then stop using to appreciate the effect. While subtle, overtime my skin feels healthier, nourished and clear.
If you’re interested in buying the essence I recommend going for this value set because you’re basically getting a toner and mask for free. The toner is nice, but I adore my NARS toner way more and the mask is beautiful but at $22 a sheet, I would only use it for special occasions.
Have you tried SK-II skincare?
