It’s SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence. I was introduced to SK-II when I started working and they were one of my clients. So I got to test out a lot of their product and also learned a lot about their products and the brand in general.
What makes the Facial Treatment Essence, also known as The Miracle Water, so different to so many other products is the fact that it’s 90% Pitera. Pitera is an ingredient that was found in during the fermentation process in the Sake Breweries. The workers were quite old however their hands were youthful and flawless.
This is pretty much what the Facial Treatment Essence aims to do for your skin, make it flawless. It helps with the hydration of your skin, skin tone, firmness, clarity of your skin and the ageing. Pretty much does it all.
In terms of application (people generally get confused about this part), I always use it after my toner. Toner is designed to level out your skin, so make it a perfect base to absorb other products (i.e Facial Treatment Essence). If you use a serum you apply it before that or any other moisturiser So cleanse, tone, Facial Treatment Essence, then everything else you do.
Now if you know anything about SK-II you will know their that products aren't cheap. The Facial Treatment Essence goes for about $100 for the 75ml. My bottle is the 150ml, which goes for $150. But I have had that same bottle for over a year as you only need a few drops of it, so really it’s a great investment.
And can you put a price on having skin like Cate Blanchett?!
