Hi guys, in light of recent events, my skin has been insane due to stress which affected my hormones. I was suffering from a major outbreak of acne that lasted for almost 3 months. I finally went to the dermatologist to fix my skin and was put on acne topical medication which dries my skin out. So apart from having acne, my skin was also dehydrated. Yay me. When SK-II approached me last month and provided me with a bottle of their Facial Treatment Essence, it was a blessing to say the least 😊 I’ve used the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence before and you can read my previous reviews on it HERE: https://bellabae.net/2015/03/13/review-sk-ii-facial-treatment-essence/ and HERE: https://bellabae.net/2015/01/21/routine-evening-skincare/ .
Many have asked me Does the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence work? Although it isn’t my first time using the Facial Treatment Essence, it has been a while and I was hopeful to see how it will help my skin this time around when it’s at its worst. So this time, my review can also cater to those who are suffering with acne. I know for sure that the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence does not irritate my skin so I started using it immediately. It has been a month now and I’m ready to share my thoughts with you. For reference, I have oily combination acne prone skin.
- My experience with SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
If you’ve never tried it before, the Facial Treatment Essence has the consistency of water and you might doubt the efficiency of it because of that. But let me tell you, this water-like product hydrates my skin more than other thicker serums that I’ve tried. It’s the best of both worlds because you get a product that is light enough which sinks in right away into the skin and you get the highest level of hydration an essence would give.

- Before and After
Does the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence really work? After using it religiously twice a day for a month, I have seen the biggest difference on my skin in terms of hydration and brightness. I forgot how much I love this product until now. Like I mentioned, the consistency of this essence is very light and it sinks in right away but it does not just sink in into nothing. It leaves my skin so glowy and luminous despite being on drying acne topical solutions. Upon application, my skin feels and looks hydrated and my mind is blown every time I use it because I can see the difference instantly.
I honestly feel that this essence brightened my skin because the hyperpigmentation that I have from the acne is significantly lightened in just a month. Usually, it takes longer than that for me. Aside from that, I’m also free of random dry patches across my face. My skin is now evenly hydrated and also less oily throughout the day. Is this magic or whattt?
So the hype is real with this SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. It literally transformed my skin in such a short time, so I can only imagine how my skin will look after I’ve used the last drop of it. My skin was so bad when I first started this bottle and 1 month later, it is on its way to recovery and this Facial Treatment Essence is playing a big part in it! I am committed now okay. We all know that SK-II Facial Treatment Essence comes with a hefty price tag but it is a worthy investment in my opinion because of all the amazing things it has done to my skin that other products cannot do.
Good thing that it comes in 3 sizes – RM239 for 75ml, RM529 for 160ml and RM715 for 230ml, so you can choose, or you could try the PITERA™ Welcome Set for RM260 that comes with a 75ml Facial Treatment Essence, R.N.A. Power Cream and Clear Lotion for you to try and if you do, I hope it works for you as well as it is working for me! Thank you for reading guys xx
