What is SK II Essence?

Facial Treatment Essence has the essence texture, but also in liquid that makes it differ from toner and quickly absorbed as soon as it is applied on the skin, and doesn’t make a greasy feeling like other skincare products. The main ingredient in the “miracle water” is Pitera – an essence in the fermentation process of Sake. This ingredient of SK II includes a full range of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals necessary to nurture the skin. Therefore, with just one bottle of “miracle water,” you can almost solve most skin problems.
How to use SKII Facial Treatment Essence ?
According to SKII Cosmetic brand, customers should use a cotton pad to absorb the SK II toner. Using cotton sounds more annoying and expensive than applying it by hand. But using a cotton pad will bring a better effect on increasing the absorption of Pitera on the skin.
For a brief explanation, the graph shows the Pitera absorbance with different application methods:
- The first column is the lowest absorption: when applying the SK II by hands
- In the middle column: use your hand and pat your skin
- The last column shows the most absorption: use a cotton pad when applying Pitera
Here is how to apply Pitera on the skin that the brand recommends:
- Clean your face for better absorption of the toner step.
- Pour the SK II Pitera on a cotton pad to make it wet enough.
- Start wiping cotton pads on your skin from the area that needs to treat; for example, oily skin should start with the T-zone.
- Apply in the same direction as the nose above in the picture, then use the cotton press lightly on the skin, for 1 minute, for better absorption and effective work
- Finish applying SK II toner by patting the skin as shown in the last picture
- Regarding your ineffective use of SK II toner, according to the company’s recommendations, it will be more effective if you combine it with specialized creams, such as brightening, supporting the treatment of melasma, etc.
