Our SK-II JourneySaturday, March 22, 2014
A couple of months ago, I announced that I would be adding new products into my beauty routine; products from renowned skincare brand SK-II. And then about a month ago, I announced that my fiancé would also be starting an SK-II skincare regime. It's been a while since we both started, and we are nearing the end of our trial.
Here's what we think of the products.
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
Her: After a bumpy first couple of weeks, I started to experience a significant improvement in skin clarity and smoothness. After almost 3 months, my skin is smoother, clearer, and more hydrated. I can see a slight improvement in the appearance of the fine lines underneath my eyes and around my nose and mouth. I am most pleased about the reduction in the bumpiness in my skin, as well as the reduction of the appearance of my acne scars.
Him: After a lifetime of not caring for my skin, I finally started noticing the effects of neglect in my mid-twenties. My skin was dull, flaky, and dry. After using the Facial Treatment Essence, I immediately noticed that the flakiness was gone. Then came smoother, more supple skin. My skin felt more hydrated, and was much smoother to the touch.
Her: This absorbs into my skin so quickly, and really does help to clear my pores and make them less obvious. I love that it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and I am very pleased with the results I see in my skin. The skin around my neck in particular feels firmer and smoother.
Men's Facial Cleanser
Him: I was sceptical about this product at first, because it didn't lather very much. However, I soon noticed that my skin no longer felt tight and dry after I washed it. I really am experiencing more moisturised skin. Using the SK-II men's facial cleanser made me realise that the previous facial cleanser I was using was causing my skin to dry out.
The final verdict?
SK-II has been extremely beneficial for us both. It takes a lot of dedication and commitment to get your skin to a better place, but with discipline and time, you'll get there, as we did. SK-II is on the pricier side, so we will pick and choose our products carefully, but we definitely want to look into continuing our use of this skincare range to continue reaping the benefits.
