[REVIEW] SK-II R.N.A. POWER Eye Cream

 

Do you know that you could actually look older than you really are if you neglect the delicate skin around your eyes?

The skin around our eyes is the thinnest and most fragile on our entire face and is the first area to show signs of aging – such as sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles.

After 15 years of research, SK-II scientists were able to prove that our eyes can get 20% smaller on average over 15 years, starting from our 20s – due to the lack of lengthwise and crosswise firmness around the eyes.

When lengthwise firmness (less wrinkles and fine lines) and crosswise firmness (less visible pores) are achieved, skin around the eyes is firmer and eyes look bigger, younger and brighter.

The third and latest product in the award-winning R.N.A. Power Radical New Age anti-aging skincare series, the new R.N.A. Power Eye Cream promises to keep your peepers looking bigger as you age (by as much as 11% with just 6 weeks of continuous usage), by targeting the lengthwise and crosswise firmness in every corner of the eyes.

Facial Treatment Essence Limited Edition design available in gorgeous hues of red, blue, and green.

The art of Suminagashi was chosen for its powerful philosophy which states that there is no wrong drop, each dot and swirl come together to create a unique art piece. It also serves as a powerful reminder that anyone can paint their own path in the same way that simple ink and water can be transformed into a masterpiece, one drop at a time.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence New Phoenix Limited Edition

 

As Chinese New Year approaches, SK-II debuts its first-ever commemorative Chinese New Year SK-II Facial Treatment Essence New Phoenix Limited Edition.

Inspired by the courage and strength reflected in the “Wings of Change” festive collection, the Chinese New Year Limited Edition incorporates into its design the beautiful resurrection of a phoenix, which in traditional Chinese culture symbolizes auspicious harmony.

Paper cutting or “Jianzhi’ is an ancient Chinese art form that signifies celebration and good fortune. The SK-II New Phoenix Limited Edition combines this traditional Chinese art form with the design of a phoenix, a symbol of female empowerment, to express virtue, elegance and rebirth.

The Chinese New Year Limited Edition was designed to inspire women and their loved ones to bring in the new spring with hope and confidence, and encourage them to believe in themselves, take hold of their destinies, and join hands with SK-II to embark in a new journey to crystal clear skin, #changedestiny and welcome a beautiful new year.

I was delighted to attend an exclusive SK-II media session just recently in late January for the launch of their first commemorative limited edition bottle for Chinese New Year, held at SEVIIN @ TANGS.

Celebrity Make-up Artist, Larry Yeo, was there to share tips on how to best prep your skin to achieve that radiant look for Chinese New Year as well as make-up tips for a natural, fresh looking makeup that will last through the long days of visiting.

Next, an experiment was conducted to compare rate of absorbency and level of moisturisation of SKII latest product, Facial Treatment Oil, with 3 other luxury brand oils.

[Review] SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil

 

Cleansing is an important part of my daily beauty routine. To achieve a healthy-looking skin, I always ensure my face is thoroughly cleanse every night. When it comes to makeup cleanser, I actually prefers cleansing oil than milk. I find that cleansing milk is milder and it doesn’t really clean off makeup as well as cleansing oil do.

SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil

I’ve recently obtained the SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil and after a few weeks of usage, I decided to review the product.

Product Profile

SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil contains a rich formula of Pitera and Apple Seed extract that deeply cleanses pores and effectively eliminates even the most stubborn makeup, mascara and sunscreen. This 2-in-1 cleanser and makeup remover leaves skin clear and radiant. Recommended for combination to oily skin types.

Ingredients

Based on the ingredient list, this Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil contains a high concentration of mineral oil. This clear odorless oil cannot become a solid and it doesn’t clog pores or cause acne. :D Though it’s somewhat greasy but it doesn’t suffocate my skin. Hence, this Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil is also suitable for combination to oily skin types too.

It also contains a rich formula of Pitera, the fifth ingredient on the list. I spotted Citric Acid in the list, the small amounts of this ingredient helps adjust the pH of the the product to prevent it from being too alkaline.
