SK-II is a luxury skincare brand that originates from Japan. It’s huge in Asia and in the US and Cate Blanchett and Kate Bosworth are the brand ambassadors. The brand has finally launched in Dubai this month! SK-II products are very exclusive in the region. Dubai is the only place in the Middle East where SK-II products are available. You can find the products in Paris Gallery in Dubai Mall and I also saw them at the Dubai duty free Airport.
I did my research about the brand and I’ve read many reviews, I haven’t came across a single negative comment or review about it which is very impressive! Find out below what makes these products so amazing….
Two months ago I attended an exclusive workshop along with a few editors. The SK-II
skincare experts briefed us about the history of the brand, what the products do and
we’ve got a skin consultation. My skin was really, really bad! The skin consultant took a
picture of my skin (just like the image above) and then the results appeares on the
The results on the screen of this image are really good. My results were literally a small circle and my skin age was about 40 years old SHOCKING! 🙁
The skincare expert that gave us a consultation had an amazing skin and he looked about 28/30 years old, when he told us he’s 40+ I was shocked! He told us that his skin age is 14 years old, OMG!
The main ingredient in SK-II products is Pitera. In 1970 scientists were at a Japanese sake brewery when they noticed the soft and youthful hands of the aged sake brewers. That’s how they found out that Pitera is the secret for crystal clear skin!
SK-II is the only skincare brand that has tracked the skin of 100 women for over 10 years! We were shown pictures of women their skin before they used SK-II and after 10 years of using the products. The results were incredible! Even though the women were aging, their skin only improved more and more. The blemishes and dark spots disappeared and the skin got more firm + I didn’t see a single wrinkle.
What SK-II does:
– Improves firmness
– Improves Radiance
– Reduces fine lines
– Texture refinement
Here’s a picture that Beyonce’s make-up artist posted on Instagram of his skincare essentials. Apparently the Facial Treatment Essence is one of his essentials (btw he has great skin too so I think him seriously when he talks about a product!).
Facial Treatment Essence
This product is their best seller and signature product! 98% concentration of Pitera which is SK-II’s miracle anti-aging ingredient. It’s meant to improves your skin in terms of texture, firmness and luminosity.
Hydrates, brightens and evens out the skin tone. It’s meant to diminishes dullness and pigmentation.
Skin Signature Melting Rich Cream
Nourishes the skin and keeps the moisture locked in for 12 hours. It’s meant to make your skin smoother, firmer and more radiant.
I used the products a couple of times but I haven’t used it long enough to see a difference. To achieve results, you must at least use the products for a couple of months. The product range is very pricy but after doing my research and seeing the before and after images, I do believe that it can improve your skin and that it’s worth the money.
I’m very excited to use these products for a couple of months to see a difference and if it does, I will definitely share it on my blog!
I’m also running a competition on my Facebook page where I’m giving away SK-II products worth 600,- AED each (including their best selling products), to two winners. Head over to my Facebook page to enter the competition for your chance to win!
*The competition is valid across the Middle East including KSA & Lebanon until May 11th.
