The High-End Product That Made All The Difference
Was it worth the hype? I found out.
Skincare has always been one of my top priorities. I never leave the house without SPF, always remove my makeup before bed, and try to drink at least two liters of water a day. I've had the same routine for almost ten years now, but as I approach my mid-20s, I'm noticing my skin looking a little duller and uneven, and the dreaded fine lines have definitely started to set in. I was complaining to one of my coworkers about the recent changes to my skin, and she highly recommended that I check out a brand called SK-II.
After doing some research, I learned that SK-II is a luxury Japanese cosmetics brand that's been featured in various publications (like Allure and Glamour) for their best-seller: the Facial Treatment Essence. What really caught my attention was their primary ingredient called PITERA™, which comprises over 90% of the facial essence. It's a combination of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are designed to resemble your skin's natural moisturizing factors. The water-like consistency also helps the essence absorb more quickly into the skin than your typical moisturizers.
The product reviews were so positive, that I was skeptical if it would actually live up to the hype. Could one product really make that much of an improvement to my skin? I was nervous to jump right into a full-sized product without knowing whether it would actually work or not. But my coworker said it was the only thing that worked for her, and it saved her money after she stopped buying other skin care products that weren't doing anything but draining her wallet. I figured that I wasn't getting any younger and if there was anything to invest in, it should be my skin care. So I decided to give it a shot and purchased the smallest size in 75mL for just $99.
When my SK-II PITERA™ Essence arrived the following week, I couldn't wait to try it out. It was lighter than I expected, and I was surprised how far a couple of drops went. It's also super easy to apply--just a few drops into my hand and after patting it into my skin, I could already feel it sinking in and working its magic. After a couple of weeks using the product morning and night, my complexion was better than it had been in years. My cheeks were far less red and pigmented, my smile lines were less visible, my pores were smaller... and I was just glowing! I knew that once this bottle was done, I was definitely going to purchase again.
I never thought that adding another product to my skin care routine would actually make that much of a difference, but now I can't remember life before the SK-II PITERA™ Essence. It was so worth the investment and is now a holy grail product I plan to repurchase time and time again.
