Let’s face it. Everyone wants a crystal clear skin. Who doesn’t right? I never imagine myself having crystal clear skin. I’m not born with a good skin to begin with and the problems I have just make everything seems impossible. I’m sure you remember watching SK-II’s luring TVC of the iconic Facial Treatment Essence. SK-II advertisement never fail to make me go gaga. It is the one product that I’ve been dying to try. Let me repeat that. DYING TO TRY. What stop me from doing so? To be honest with you, all the reviews online freaks me out big time. Some people suffer allergy attack, some suffer withdrawal effect and some said their skin is worse than before. Why do these people sounded as if Facial Treatment Essence is like an acid anyway? Thanks to SK-II Malaysia last year, I was given the opportunity to undergo Magic Ring Skin Analysis. Not only I learnt about my skin real age and problems, I also braved myself and ask for a Facial Treatment Essence sample to try. I just needed to find out if I will develop any allergy from it. Well, the rest is history. I have purchase two bottles of Facial Treatment Essence since Magic Ring Skin Analysis.
Facial Treatment Essence or “Miracle Water” as they’re widely known as is SK-II’s signature product. It is actually an essence but misunderstood by most people as a lotion/toner, I would say probably from the patting application on the TVC previously. The essence itself contain over 90% Pitera™, the miracle ingredient discovered over 30 years ago that remains essentially unchanged till today. Pitera is a naturally-derived liquid from the yeast fermentation process. The history goes all the way back to 1970s, when a scientist in Japan visited a Japanese saké brewery and noticed the elderly workers had wrinkled faces, but extraordinarily soft and youthful-looking hands. Then they realised these workers are constantly in contact with sake fermentation process thus the soft youthful hands.
