The promise of glowing skin in 7-days seems like a marketing hook dreamed up by ad agencies who mine our innate narcissism for proverbial gold. However, like a charm, it works every single time, which is how I ended up on my Miracle Journey with SK-II Pitera™ Essence Set. Skin transformation is at the heart of this 7-day adventure, with the end result, improved skin conditions. With hope and a slight streak of realistic doubt in my heart, I went forth excitedly and this is my tale.
The SK-II Pitera™ Essence Set contains these items:
– SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 75ml
– SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion 40ml
– SK-II Facial Treatment Mask 1-piece
– Cotton Pieces 30-piece
Crafted specially to deliver optimum results in the brief timespan (hence the tagline, Miracle Journey), I looked forward to the transformative effects it would have on my dry skin. Having seen the results on SK-II’s newest and youngest brand ambassador, Haruka Ayase, crystal clear skin was the destination and my Miracle Journey over 7-days began.
I applied the SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion through the cotton pads supplied after washing my face. Although toner isn’t usually in my regime due to its drying qualities, the SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion felt alright and didn’t leave my face feeling tight.
Next, I used my fingers to pat the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence on my freshly washed and post-toner face. You can also use the cotton pads given, but in my excitement of finally using SK-II’s “Miracle Water”, I wanted the full thrill of the hands-on experience.
Loving the feel of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence on my hands so much, I decided to be more hands-on with the SK-II Facial Clear Lotion too.
Though there was no obvious difference to my skin yet, I felt like a brand-new person already having racheted up cool points using the ever-famous SK-II that counts luminaries and personal favourites like Cate Blanchett and now Haruka Ayase as brand ambassadors.
Today, I realized that my foundation goes on skin much easier than usual after my SK-II morning routine. My dry skin usually means patchy spots of foundation but this time around, the overall effect was very smooth.
As I get through my SK-II morning routine, I noticed that my under-eye concealer actually glides on easily. Normally, it is a hassle to blend it in but today, it went on smoothly like butter on toasted bread, (which is also coincidentally what I had for breakfast that morning).
I took a good look at myself in the mirror this morning right after applying my SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and Essence and I realized that my skin looked and actually felt smoother. Foundation goes on evenly and concealer blends in without any effort. I was so happy, I wore my new top which was meant to be saved for Chinese New Year early!
To pamper myself after a long week of work, I put on the SK-II Facial Treatment Mask. A concentrated version of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, the mask felt extremely relaxing and refreshing. I felt rejuvenated and the night out with my girlfriends was the perfect way to end the day.
Seeing is indeed believing and after going through my personal 7-day journey with SK-II, I can attest to the miracle it performs. My visibly transformed skin, smoother with a glow to it, has left the pessimist in me cheerfully silenced!
My experience with SK-II Pitera™ Essence Set left me a happier person – smoother skin with a glow and a boost of confidence will do that to you. If you’d like to embark on your own Miracle Journey, get your hands on a SK-II Pitera Essence Set (retail price: RM199) at all SK-II counters now.
