[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.

The Skincare Products I’m Currently Using

 

skincare products I'm using

Many peers and readers have been asking me the same question – “what are the skincare products I’m using at the moment?”. My bad for not able to blog about this topic earlier.

For the past few years, I didn’t really have a regular skincare regimen. I kept trying new products (mainly for review purpose) and chucking away relatively new products that I find do not work.

But for the recent months, my skincare regimen remains more consistent and hence I’m ready to share. There you go….

My Day Regimen

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Daily Serum > SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream > Belif The True Cream – Moisturizing Bomb > SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF50

My Night Regimen

SK-II Cellumination Mask-In Lotion > SK-II Facial Treatment Essence > Sisley Phyto-Blanc Clearing Essence With Vitamin C > Sisley Ecological Compound > Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence > Clarins White Plus All Spots Brightening Corrector > SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream > Belif The True Cream – Moisturizing Bomb

or

SK-II Cellumination Mask-In Lotion > SK-II Facial Treatment Essence > Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum > Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence > Clarins White Plus All Spots Brightening Corrector > SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream > Belif The True Cream – Moisturizing Bomb

 

1. Clarins White Plus All Spots Brightening Corrector

Clarins White Plus All Spots Brightening Corrector contains Salicylic acid that helps to reduce dark spots by encouraging the elimination of dead cells full of melanin. This easy to use roll-on, with a targeted application, has an extra-concentrated formula to combat pigmentation. It contains high molecular weight (HMW) hyaluronic acid that improves skin hydration for up to 94% after 2 hours of use. I normally use it on the targeted area around the cheekbone. However it doesn’t prevent the new formation of pigmentation on my skin.

2. Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence

Laneige White Plus Renew Original Essence is a whitening serum that is formulated without four harmful ingredients like paraben, animal ingredients, artificial pigments and mineral oil. I will see better results when I use it together with Laneige White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack.

3. SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream

I’ve just finished the last bit of this SK-II Skin Signature Eye Cream. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued and it is now replaced with the new StemPower Eye Cream. Just bought the new StemPower Eye Cream and hope to review it soon.

4. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is one of my must-have and my current most favorite skincare product. I’ve been using it, faithfully every night, for the past two years. Previously, I only use it as and when I feel like it. It is said that there’s an intrinsic link between long-term usage of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and better skin quality as we age.

Research showed that 9 in 10 loyal users have better skin compared to non-users in the same age group, with 7 in 10 users having better skin conditions as compared to non-users who are 10 years younger. I must say it does help to maintain my skin youthfulness. This is one product I can’t leave without at the moment! Read more about my amazing results with SK-II Facial Treatment. <grinning>

5. SK-II Cellumination Mask-In Lotion

SK-II Cellumination Mask-In Lotion is the first step of my skincare regimen every night. It acts as a double cleansing process to help cleanse away the residue and dirt that my cleanser has missed. It also helps to exfoliate my skin whenever I rub the soaked cotton pad with lotion on my face. Love the unique emollient silky texture that glides on the skin easily. My skin feels soft, smooth and clean upon using it.

[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.

Transform Your Skin Destiny with SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

 

On August 25th, SK-II has launched a beauty revolution built around the concept of “Skin Destiny”, inspired by its groundbreaking Skin Destiny Study.

The study proves that crystal clear skin today can last 10, 20, and even 30 years from now – giving women the power to take control of their skin’s future.

A few weeks ago, SK-II has hosted an event to showcase a powerful record of over 50,000 women in Singapore who have embarked on their journey to change their skin destiny. The event was held at the interim SK-II Pitera™ Pod at TANGS Orchard, attended by loyal users and media.

Celebrity loyal users, Rebecca Lim (MediaCorp Artiste) and George Young (FLY Entertainment Artiste), helmed the launch and shared personal testimonies on changing their skin destiny with SK-II.

SK-II’s latest study reveals women have the power to transform their skin destiny with Facial Treatment Essence.

In this “Skin Destiny” Study, first-of-its-kind research led by SK-II, the researchers have discovered an intrinsic link between long-term usage of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence and better skin quality as we age. Long term users of the Essence who started in their 20s enjoy better skin in their 30s and 40s. More impressively, 9 in 10 loyal users have better skin compared to non-users int he same age group, with 7 in 10 users having better skin conditions as compared to non-users who are 10 years younger.
