To those who are new to the brand the way the ingredient Pitera was discovered by "A Japanese monk visiting a sake brewery who noticed that the brewery workers had extraordinarily soft and youthful hands. Even an elderly man with pronounced wrinkles on his face possessed the silky smooth hands of a young boy."After a series of experiments a team of skincare scientists discovered the secret; a clear, nutrient-rich liquid that could be extracted during the yeast fermentation process. They named the liquid 'Pitera', which, over time, has become known as the 'Secret Key' to beautiful skin. Developed by SKII, Pitera is a yeast ferment filtrate of sake. It contains a natural collection of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids and helps restore the skin's natural renewal process- sounds great huh?
|Listening to the presentation|
|We were then introduced to the Vision Scope which I will explain more in a second|
|The amazing range|
The second image shows the elasticity rating of my skin out of a 100. The elasticity is a sign of your skins ageing, I was a bit shocked by this number and when I went back the next day for a facial (I know, hard life) and when I had no makeup on my number was actually 85, funny how end of day and wearing makeup can actually affect the number you receive.
The next image looks at my wrinkles they take this image out of the corner of my eye, now I didn't really think I had wrinkles, yet, but I am developing dehydration lines which is the beginning of wrinkles, so I was advised to really amp up the eye creams so make sure these do now start getting deeper... eep! See the faint lines going across?
The next image looks at sun damage on my skin you can see in this image I have a slight dusting on my skin which is clusters of melanin which I know is something I really want to reduce and fade, I feel like I can see them on my face and see faint sun spots and I want to get that even toned Cate Blanchett skin. This is where I was recommneded the Cellumination range to help even out my skin colour- I am dying to try this! Luckily I don't have much more sun damage as I try very hard to maintain good sun protection, as we all should!
The last image assess the overall skin tone and my skin is about average, again this looked different the day after once I had no makeup on as the makeup can muddy the scan.So I learnt a lot about my skin through these scans, my skin is overall in good condition which means all the hard work I put in is paying off!
|The Chair for my amazing facial!!!!|
The last thing I wanted to mention was the new introductory kit they have launched:
This kit is fantastic, for the price I got for the Facial Treatment Essence which is the same size of mine 75ml you get the Facial Treatment Essence, mask and try the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion which has AHA's to chemically exfoliate the skin. The mask alone cost $30 and then you add in the lotion, so it is so worth it. If you have ever been wanting to try SK-II then this is a great way to start and that Facial Treatment Essence will last you ages, you only need a tiny amount onto your hand and dab it onto your face.
So that's enough for me, now I want to know, have you tried SK-II before? What do you think?
