Review | SK-II Whitening Source Derm-Definition UV Lotion (SPF50) PA+++ & SK-II PITERA ESSENCE SET OF 3


I always believe that a great skincare routine is the foundation to a greater makeup look. It is highly essential in order to achieve a flawless base before you put on your makeup. 

I've been using SK-II products for quite sometime and special thanks to Sephora and SK-II for hooking me up with more SK-II goods. #blessed 

I've picked up the SK-II Pitera Essence Set and SK-II Whitening Source Derm-Definition UV Lotion (SPF50) PA+++. 

SK-II WHITENING SOURCE DERM-DEFINITION UV LOTION (SPF50) PA +++


PACKAGING

As you can see, it comes in a tube with a screw cap. I wish it comes with an open/close nozzle cap so that it eases my application. Since it's only 30g, the tube is rather slim and it's perfect to store in your purse/bag. 


DESCRIPTION 

This brightening UV protector is powered with SPF 50 / PA +++ to shelter your skin against UVA and UVB rays. It is enriched with whitening and moisturising agents. It also prevents dark spots caused by UV rays. Your skin is intensely moisturised and protected from free radicals and other environmental stresses. 


FORMULA

It is a cream with an almost gel-like consistency. It took sometime for the product to fully absorb into my skin since it feels really thick. All you need is roughly 1.5cm for your entire face. Although it is thick, it's not greasy at all. It gives a semi-matte finish and you can definitely powder your face to stay matte.

2. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (75ml): A glass bottle with a plastic screw cap.

2. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence: Described as SK-II's "miracle water". It contains 90% more Pitera, an ingredient that retains youthfulness in one's skin. The essence balances the skin's pH, sebum secretion, moisture and oxygen levels, so it is not too oily or dry. It also soothes and refreshes skin from sunburns. 
3. SK-II Facial Treatment Mask: An intensive moisture-boosting mask with 10 times more Pitera. Deeply hydrates your skin.


FORMULA

1. SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion: I loveee using this after removing my makeup. It has a super lightweight formula that takes off all impurities on your face. 
2. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence: This liquid is lightweight and has a slight distinctive yeast smell. It absorbs relatively fast on your face and leaves your skin feels smooth and matte. My holy grail essence!
3. SK-II Facial Treatment Mask: This mask is drenched with an infused liquid that has a high percentage of Pitera. 

WORTH OR NAH?

I strongly suggest you to get the SK-II PITERA ESSENCE SET OF 3. For RM229, I believe that it is worth it. This is recommended for those who wants to try SK-II products but are not ready to splurge so much on it. Furthermore, SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is highly raved by celebrities/influencers since it does refine your skin and it has also become my holy grail essence! As for SK-II Whitening Source Derm-Definition UV Lotion, it really depends on the area that you want to improve. If you're looking for something extra to counter your dark spots or wants to brighten your skin tone, go for it! It is expensive (RM274) but it is definitely worth it in the long run!
