Not a toner, but not quite a serum, SK-II essence is the perfect way to enhance your skincare routine. Applied post-cleanser but pre-moisturizer, essences give skin an effective dose of nutrients, priming it to absorb oils, creams, and serums more efficiently. What’s more, they target specific skin concerns: large pores, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, dullness, and elasticity, to name a few. Basically, SK-II essence is like a wheatgrass shot for your skincare routine, boosting it to perform even better.
Now that we've given you a crash-course in all things essence, you're probably wondering which formula is right for you. In our opinion, no routine is complete without the Obsession-Worthy™ SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. Referred to as “miracle water” by skincare experts, the bestselling formula is enriched with more than 90% Pitera™—an exclusive SK-II bio-ingredient ingredient that’s packed with vitamins, amino acids, and minerals. Used daily, the Facial Treatment Essence dramatically speeds up cell renewal, boosts skin’s moisture levels, and creates a glowing complexion. Looking to address specific skincare concerns?
