" Love the texture and application ", 
This is my all time favorite serum. I've only been using it for two weeks but I can tell a remarkable difference in my skin. Combined with the Essence and the Brightening Mask (1-2 week) I am very pleased. I haven't noticed any reduction in my dark (sun) spots but I'm giving it more time. The application is so cool, I love how innovative SK-II is.

" Compliments on radiance but not dark spots ", 
I use this product every night before I go to sleep. I use a little bit extra on dark spots on my face. Over the past 30 days I have received compliments about how great my skin looks. But I have not seen any improvement on the dark spots on my chin. I would recommend if you want to have a glowy look but do not recommend for dark spot reduction. The beautiful packaging definitely helps! I received this product for free from SK-II. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Gives radiance but not sure if it really works on dark spots ", 
I've been using SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence for about a month one a day before I go to sleep. I add a little more to some dark spots on my chin. I've seen little improvement to the dark spots but I do get compliments on my overall skin texture and radiance. Several people have commented on how great my skin looks. So I would buy again just for that. Don't buy if you're looking for dramatic spot reduction, but a must buy for added brilliance to skin. And, the beautiful packaging doesn't hurt!

" SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence ", 
I wasn't really impressed by this product. I have used high-end skin care before and was super excited to try this! But I really saw no difference for the better. Actually my usually very clear skin started breaking out. Not something I'm used to as a 39 year old! I actually tried it for a little longer than I should have just in case it was the crazy hot summer. But it still didn't help. I did receive this product from SK-II for free in return for an honest review but unfortunately this product did not work for me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Still testing SKI-II GenOptic Aura Essence... ", 
I have only rated SKI-II GenOptics Aura Essence 2 stars because I am still testing the product. During my use of it, I haven't noticed a change in my skin, other than it feels nice when I put it on. I do have a few old spots on my face that were caused from pimples & the sun years ago, but honestly I have noticed a change in them. Maybe I will as time goes on. I have super sensitive skin, so I haven't been using it every day. I have to allow my skin to get used to a new product before I'm able to use it every day. And I've only been using the product for about 2 weeks. That may also be why I haven't noticed a difference yet. I haven't given up on it though. I wish I could do a follow up review at a later time! It seems like other people are having great results with it! I received this product complimentary from SKI-II. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Effective skincare ", 
I wanted to try this product out for a few weeks before giving a good review. I consistently used it for 3 weeks and honestly within the first week I started to notice my skin looking brighter. After 3 weeks I noticed my skin brighter, smoother and minimalized dark spots. I tested out the product by stopping the use of the product and noticed my skin looked dull compared to the weeks that I've used it. This product absorbs easy to the skin. It doesn't feel tacky at all, almost described to be matte once it dries into the skin. I didn't have to wait too long for the product to be absorbed into the skin. I could put the next product on almost after. I use it first after my toner so my skin absorbs this first before anything else. Thank you to SK-II for letting me test this product out. I highly recommend this. You will see an immediate difference and brightness to the skin. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" So glad I got to try this! ", 
I think SK-II is a fairly good product. Love the applicator, it let's you control how much you want. It's not greasy. I've been using this for several weeks and I'm pretty impressed. I'm glad SK-II gave me this complimentary sample!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" SKII Aura Essence is Amazing! ", 
I am in love with this product! SKII's Aura Essence has made my skin look the best it has in years. I don't remember the last time my skin looked so healthy, even (complexion), hydrated, and radiant. The first day that I started using the formula I was a little skeptical that it would actually work as well as it has because I had spots on my cheeks and chin that were pretty noticeable, redness, and my combination skin which is always either oily or too dry... basically the product had it's work cut out for it. During the first few days I noticed that it drew out the impurities that were in my skin, gave me a glow when I applied it, was very hydrating, didn't feel heavy on my skin at all, and was working it's magic little by little. The formula itself is wonderful, spreads really evenly, very light (almost like your wearing nothing), hydrating, has only a very faint hint of smell in it that is pleasant but not overbearing, and is not irritating at all (and I have very sensitive skin). The bottle says to use one to two droppers but I have never had to use more than one dropper per application because the formula coats my skin so nicely and when I did it just seemed like overkill. I replaced my moisturizer with the aura essence because I don't like layering my face products to the point that my skin can't breathe and I don't regret it at all! My skin has never looked better and this product I have to say is worth every penny. I know it's pricey but if your having the kind of skin issues I have you know the struggle is real! Once I thought about it I have been spending about the same on the various items (combined) that I have been using and buying just to experiment with that were ineffective. I used the essence for 8 full weeks before doing my review because I wanted to use it precisely how SKII recommends it and let the world know what the true results are like (since it's something that I have been dying to try). My verdict is... Yes, this product is wonderful and it has lived up to all the great things I have heard about it. I was lucky enough to receive my bottle of Aura Essence complimentary from SKII to test and I have to say that I am now hooked. I will happily say that I am now a faithful SKII customer and I am in love with my skin. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Luxurious product ", 
I was a bit skeptical about using this on my face because sometimes it becomes sensitive and reacts by becoming oily. After using this product consistently for a few weeks others noticed a change before I did. Although I don't have any visible spots, my skin looked and felt more smooth, radiant and even. Easy to apply and smelled fine. I received this product complimentary from SK-II [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Luminous & Indulgent ", 
I have tried several skin care products from Mary Kay and Estee Lauder to Olay and Neutrogena. Many products do seem to work well for my skin but SK-II has exceeded my expectations and improved my skin drastically. It did take a while for me to see a difference and I was waiting to review to see how it worked for me. It took several weeks but now the difference in my skin is undeniable. The dropper is easy to use and I love that only two drops are needed. SK-II has made my skin clear, luminuos, soft and youthful. I have had people ask me if i was pregnant due to the glow from this. I truly recommend this product. It has helped me immensely with hyper-pigmentation and lackluster skin. It will be the main component of my skin care product as it has made a remarkable change in my life. I received this complimentary product from SK-II and will forever be grateful as I do not have to keep switching from brand to brand to find the best skin care product for me. I will continue to purchase and be a user. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Luxurious product! Love it! ", 
I have been using this product for about a month. I was impressed with the packaging. Even the bottle feels luxurious. The bottle is heavy and it comes with a dropper to help portion a tiny amount onto your palm. It smell is very mild and pleasant. I usually hate putting lotions and things on my face because I am sensitive to smells, but this didn't bother me at all. After about a month, I am noticing a more even skin tone and my face definitely doesn't feel as dry. I have received a few compliments from friends about my "glow." So I guess it works! I'm not sure that I would purchase again, given the steep price tag. I received this product in return for an honest review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Amazing Product ", 
although this item is pretty pricey, it is evidently worth it. I have been using it for a few months and have seen much improvement in my skins appearance. it is much smoother, brighter, and radiant. I would highly recommend this product to everyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" A little luxury ", 
This classy product comes in a futuristic bottle with an easy-to-use dropper (which, when the product runs low, becomes useless -- you'll have to tip it over like a ketchup bottle). The product itself smells great and does not feel greasy when applied. Over a few applications I thought my skin appeared brighter, but my existing spots did not become lighter. That being said, the product claims to reduce the emergence of age spots over time, and I'll never know if that is true. I would continue to use this, if only for the pleasant scent. I received the product complimentary from SK-II for my unbiased review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence ", 
I've been using the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence that SK-II sent me for free for several weeks now and while I don't really have any visable spots to notice a difference in the apperance, I love the way it feels and I do feel like my skin is sort of "glowier". Also the bottle is really pretty and I like the dropper application.....I would recommend but it may be a bit pricy for regular use [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Luxury in a bottle ", 
Just using a teeny tiny bit of this "essence" twice a day, everyday, is enough to make you addicted. It feels so good going on and the packaging is amazing. It's a heavy weighted bottle with an ingenious opening/mouth that allows for the dropper to come out completely clean without any drips. The pump on the dropper is subtle, and works like a charm to get you the perfect amount of product every time. The actually effects of the product are multi faceted. I've read that this is going to reduce pore size, provide even tone, and make the skin glow. So far I haven't noticed the pore size reduction after 4 weeks, but I do feel that there is a more even tone and a dewy-ness to my skin. The essence is like a super light moisturizer so you never feel greasy or dry... its kind of perfect. The price point for the product is a bit high, but the effects may be worth it to those who can afford to pick up a bottle every every months (like I said you need very little product with each use).

" Advanced Skin Care ", 
Great product that feels smooth and light when going on. You can sort of tell the minute you put it on and if nothing else it will make your skin feel good and give you a light moisturizing effect that will neither be greasy or leave you dry. Wonderfully packaged and so far I do feel that there is a more even tone and a dewy-ness to my skin. I have already received a few compliments on my skin looking healthy and young for my age. I found that it worked best after cleansing morning and night. It's so light, in fact, that it absorbs quickly - you can literally climb into bed the minute after you apply it. Because it does so many positive things for the skin, I noticed that my skin care regimen was reduced by using this product. I only cleanse and apply this product now. I received the product complimentary from SK-II. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" It doesn't do what it advertises. ", 
This product works well as a light moisturizer, but other than that, I do not feel that it is brightening. My hyperpigmentation from acne has yet to expedite in fading and my skintone has yet to even out at all. It doesn't advertise itself as a niacinamide product, even though it is one of the ingredients, so it makes me think that the product might not have a sufficient niacinamide concentration to make an impact for a "brighter aura glow". There is a heavy fragrance to this product that I find very offputting and it lingers for about 20 minutes after application. I do love the milky texture of this product. It is lightweight and absorbs readily, but I feel that you sometimes do need an additional moisturizer, especially since it advertises itself as an essence and I think the additional moisturizer will be beneficial during dryer seasons. The price tag is definitely something to consider, since it is very underwhelming as skincare product. If you're looking for a light moisturizer or another essence, then there's definitely other products that are inexpensive and works well. If you're looking for brightening products with niacinamide, there are others out there that have it as an ingredient and also advertises the percent concentration of niacinamide. If you're interested in trying out fermented skincare products, there are other brands out there with lines of fermented products, just not with Pitera. Overall, I am underwhelmed and disappointed that a luxury brand, high end skincare product can be so utterly useless when compared other brands with less expensive price points.

" I'm a believer ", 
I cannot rave enough about this serum. I honestly just thought… oaky fancy serum, I’ll try it… it might help my skin. I had no idea that it would work so fast! This serum is amazing! I wish I had the foresight to take photos in a controlled environment because from the photos I have, it’s really hard to capture the true difference in my skin after using this product for a month. After using the SK-ii GenOptics serum morning and evenings every day for a week I noticed a difference in the brightness of my skin. After 3 weeks I noticed that a couple of my newest age spots have actually faded a little. This has been a revelation to me that it is actually possible to fade age spots. I have used 3 different serums continuously over the past year and a half hoping that their claims to fading my age spots would eventually come true. I had gotten results of brighter skin, but none have ever faded my age spots. After going through a bottle of product (usually lasts 2-4 mo) I give up on it when it’s time to repurchase. For me to actually notice a lightening of my age spots was exciting, but to notice it in less than a month’s time is phenomenal! I have never used a product like this before. I have never spent this much money on a product either, but I am now a believer. Luckily I still have about half a bottle left, so when the bottle is gone, I may just bite the bullet and purchase it. To break it down into short lists: PROS: Light scent, Smells nice, smooth milky texture, absorbs quickly, hydrates, non-greasy, easy, applicator, brightens skin, reduces appearance of age spots CONS: Can’t see the amount left in the bottle, dispenses too much product, Price tag Picture: On the left is a selfie I took back in July prior to this study. On the right was a photo I took after using the GenOptics for 5 weeks. I received this complimentary product for testing and reviewing purposes, however all opinions expresses are solely my own and no influenced by any third party.

" Loving the sk-II ", 
Been using the SK-II for a few weeks now and its been by far my favorite beauty product for my face. It gives you that soft and fresh face when you wake up in the morning. i shared some of the product to my friend because she wanted to try it now she bought a bottle for herself. My friend Jing is loving the SK-II. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Great Product! ", 
I love the way this product feels and smells. The best part is how light weight it is and feels on your skin. It definitely has given my skin a glow and leaving my skin soft. A little bit definitely goes a long way, but I make sure to fully indulge my face with SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence. I received the product complimentary from SK-II in exchange for my honest opinion.

" Really like it ", 
This stuff is credible. The ultimate, luxurious serum to really pamper yourself. I am a skincare junkie, especially as I get older, and believe me when I say I have tried it all. From ultra inexpensive drug store lines to the highest if the high end. Yes, this product is pricey, but after using it for about 3-4 weeks, I can say it's worth every penny. In my 20's I suffered from adult acne and am still left with some redness and scaring. Now that I'm 40, I am concerned with dryness, dullness and fine lines. This product has addressed all my concerns and made a vast improvement in my skin in a very short period of time. I apply 1 full dropper only at night, all over my face and down my neck and chest. It is not sticky or heavily scented. My skin feels so soft in the morning, and it glows. My skin is very sensitive, especially to new products, and I get no stinging, redness or reaction to this serum. I am a daily makeup wearer, in part to fake the appearance of 'perfect' skin. I am now using less makeup and spending less time doing my makeup. Less flaws to cover! The dropper design is absolute genius!! And helps avoid any waste, which is important because every drop is precious. The bottle itself is so pretty, an iridescent sheen, and a heavy weight and high quality feel. Something you're proud to display on your vanity. I was lucky enough to receive a bottle via compliments of SK-II, which is good because I'm not sure it's something I would ever try on my own. It's a great serum, but I am still deciding if it will be worth spending the money or repurchase after I run out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" I cannot believe I went so long without this! ", 
I was very skeptical of how SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence was going to work on my skin. I am a if it's not broke don't fix it kind of gal. Well it was broke and I didn't even know it! I am so in love with this product, it has nice packaging and a little goes a long way. Everyday after my shower this goes right on my face giving my soft and even looking skin. It is gentle and had not caused any breakouts and I have received tons of complements on my skin and how amazing it looks. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for a simple after shower face routine. I received the product complimentary from SK-II in exchange for my honest opinion.

" Baby smooth skin. ", 
When I first opened this product I was entranced by the packaging - it is to die for! The heavy weight bottle doesn't feel cheap at all, and the opalescent colored glass was just so mesmerizing. It's got a built in pump at the top, which is pretty nice. When I first used it, it was on freshly cleansed and toned skin. One full pump was actually a bit much, in my opinion, so I brought it down to half a pump. The smell was surprisingly light and went on like a dream. It dried completely and didn't leave me feeling tacky or greasy. Even though the product never made me breakout, I also feel like it didn't actually do much for my skin. It made it soft when first applied, but I never noticed a glow, or anything incredibly special about it. For the price tag, I'm not entirely convinced that this is any sort of have to have miracle product. I received this product complimentary from SK-II.

" Glow without the Grease ", 
When I got this product I was a bit confused because there is nothing to indicate what it's for, and quite frankly, I couldnt remember what it was supposed to be. After Googling I figured it can't hurt and I've been using it for over a month now. At first I thought it was a waste because I didn't see any difference in my facial skin, but I gave it a chance and now I love it. First of all, it has a very cool dispensing pump. The product itself is not greasy at all, and it gives the face a wonderful glow. It's worth trying even if you're fair-skinned like me. I wouldn't spend too much on it, though. I received this product in return for my honest opinion. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Luxury Serum ", 
I was lucky enough to receive a complimentary 50 ML bottle of SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence courtesy of SK-II. This is a thick and luxurious serum you will gladly be willing to add to your skin regiment. You just need a few drops to cover your face and neck. Adding it to your routine feels awesome. It leaves my skin much softer than my usual face cream alone, and the act of giving my skin extra pampering is fulfilling in itself. All in all, this is a decadent product you deserve to indulge in.

" Magic lotion! ", 
I am always skeptical but hopeful when trying new treatments for my face. I have problem skin that can get pretty angry when I try new things. I am happy to say I love this treatment. Whatever this magical formulation of ingredients is, it smoothed out the overall tone of my face (which is no mean feat). I have very uneven skin tone and blemishes. I use this after my facial scrub. It doesn't cover blemishes but sort of blends the edges and smooths out red patches. It gives my face a subtle glow but without going to the "dewy" side if that makes sense. The feel is very light and it absorbs/dries on the skin quickly. There is no fragrance to speak of which I like, having sensitive skin. The bottle and dropper system is very nice and easy to use. It also ensures that I don't use too much of the product all at once. The inner lip of the bottle has a rubber collar and keeps the product from spilling out or coating the outside of the dropper when it is being used. (Which is terrific because this is at the higher end of beauty lines.) I would not hesitate to recommend this product. I received the product complimentary from the brand in exchange for my honest opinion and review. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Could be better ", 
In all honesty, I didn't notice any difference after using this for over a month. I used it twice a day, and my face looks the same. It went on smoothly. I liked the texture. Only needed 1 pump to cover my face. It smelled nice. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Amazing and Effective! ", 
SK II Gen Optics Aura Essence is part of your skincare routine that makes your anti-aging efforts more effective. This is a serum-like liquid you apply lightly to your skin after cleansing. I wait a few moments after the application to let the product soak in and then I seal it all with a cream. Personally, I use this once a day, at night. This is so there are no other products other than skincare on my face for a good 6-8 hours that will interfere with my skincare. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Amazing product!!! ", 
there are really no words to describe how amazing this product is. It smells so light and fresh and makes my skin feel like gold. I've been able to use this for about a month now and it really feels like this product is never ending! I love the way my skin feels and smells. I've noticed that it is much more radiant and my pores are visibly smaller. Also, my makeup goes on so much smoother. All I have to do is use one dropper daily and my skin feels brand now! This product is very pricey, however, so it is unlikely that I will purchase it on my own. I will definitely relish in how amazing my skin feels while using this product. Please note that I did receive this product complimentary from the company but if I had the unlimited funds, I would gladly purchase this on my own!

" Effective, luxurious and beautifying ", 
SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence is the very definition of luxurious and effective skincare. The most effective way to use this essence is to wash your face clean, apply the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence, wait 30 seconds for it to soak in, and apply a cream or oil on top to seal it in. After using this for 2.5 weeks, my skin is noticeably brighter, softer, more even toned. I was lucky enough to have been give this product from SK-II to try and I am definitely going out to purchase a set, skincare is so important to me, and this brand is definitely going on my face!!

" Subtle but fresh ", 
I'm really enjoying the formula of the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence. It is very silky, and a little goes a long way. Immediately after applying (using the tap-tap motion), my skin feels dewy and a little tacky. The scent is very fresh and floral. The dropper in the bottle is easy to use, but a little too long for my taste. The effect of using the essence is very subtle, but I have noticed a overall brightening of my skin. I am very grateful that I received this product complimentary from SK-II, but its results were not so impressive that I would pay the MSRP to purchase another bottle.

" Drastic improvement ", 
The longer I use this product the better the results. I had some dark spots under my eyes and they are improving drastically, I also had some on my checks and they have gone away as well. Overall it's really evening out my face - and on top of that it smells and feels amazing. I have received this product complimentary of SK-II to review.

" Gives skin that certain something ", 
After receiving this product compliments of SK-II, I was hesitant to add another mysterious element to my multi-step skincare routine. I want sure where an essence fit in, but placed right after my light serum is he perfect spot. I find that my skin looks ambiguously brighter and clearer after using the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence. I strive for a look of a translucent, lit from within skin and this helps me achieve that. As for the feel, it's thicker than I expected but does well after alight serum and before my night moisurizer. It does have a light scent but not over powering like some products I've tried. It does have a slightly opalescent cast to it so if you have darker skin, you should use it at night as I do. It may be illuminating for light skin tones.

" I really love it ", 
I like this product a lot. It immediately gives my skin healthy glow and nice smooth feeling that I can't stop touching it. It also has a great light fresh smell that makes me feel even better. Bottle design protects from any splashing or leaking, makes it very easy to apply essence. After only a few days of using SK-II I stopped putting my regular make up on, it makes me feel confident and happy. I really enjoy very much using it every day. So happy I received this product complimentary from SK-II [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" My face thanks me for using this! ", 
I used SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence on the visible spots all over my face. I was very skeptical at first that a cream could actually change the appearance of these spots that I'd been trying to cover up for years with different creams. However, after using this cream consistently for three weeks, I'm finally ready to sing its praises! Use: There is a little button-type of pump on the top of the handle with a dropper on the bottom. I pushed the button twice which placed two small drops into the center of my hand. I then would smear the cream over all my trouble areas. The first few days, I didn't think I was using enough but it was very clear after a few days that the two drops were sufficient to cover my face in a light layer. Smell: There is a slight floral smell to it and it's very pleasant. It made me feel refreshed and clean after putting it on. Feel: It goes on very smoothly and fills in my uneven patches of skin. The cream also absorbs almost instantly. Once the cream is on, it feels very light and non-greasy. Results: I have a few spots on my skin that never seemed to go away with all of the creams/potions I've tried over the years. This is the only thing I've tried that has done the job and made me feel confident to go in public without foundation! I will definitely be buying this product once I run out!

" Great product ", 
I have been using the GenOptics Aura Essence now for about three weeks and I really love it. As someone quickly approaching 30 I have become concerned with the brightness of my skin tone and this product really addresses that concern for me. I have been using the Essence every night before bed and not only does my skin feel smoother and more hydrated, I have noticed a brighter appearance overall. I highly recommend for anyone who wants brighter skin. It is also really easy to apply and my sensitive skin has had no adverse reaction to it at all. No breakouts or redness. I also have dry skin and this has seemed to help a bit with dryness overall. I received this product complimentary from SK-II in exchange for an honest review.

" Looking Good! ", 
I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and so far it still looks good. My skin looks hydrated and even. You only need a small amount for your entire face. How small? One tiny drop the size of a dime. I still have plenty left in the bottle and my skin hasn't gotten use to it to the point where it becomes ineffective. It's still working and my skin looks smoother than before. The first week I tried it every day and the second and third every other day. Every other day works for me and extends the length of use. It doesn't have a strong smell which is perfect for me! No irritation from useless perfumes in this one. I received this product free from SK-II in exchange for my honest review.

" Loving this! ", 
After a few weeks of using SK-II GenOptics Aura Essense, I can see a subtle change in my complexion and a more even skin tone of my face. It has smoothed over some rough patches I had, and overall I feel it's made some great impact on my skin. It goes on nice and smooth, and leaves a sort of dewy look on my face after applying. It has a great subtle scent as well, nothing overwhelming. I am very happy with my experience and results with this product. I received this product free from SK-II for reviewing purposes but the opinions are 100% my own. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Great Results with Small Amounts ", 
One of the major things I was looking out for when using the SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence was any kind of reaction with my skin, because normally about half the products I try on my face give me some kind of reaction (usually redness). I first tested the product on my wrist just to ensure my skin didn't have a reaction there. I didn't notice anything so was happy to proceed with using it on my face. The first week I used this product I fell in love with it! I never used anything that gave me such great results - minimized pores, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, skin that looked like it was glowing (which before I thought was just some silly marketing line people use). I was so happy with it. I did noticed I was breaking out a little more than normal though, which could be caused by a number of things, but I stopped using this to see if it was the cause. I waited about a week before trying it again, and went a little overboard with the amount that I used (a full heaping drop from the dropper as opposed to the "half" drops I had been using previously). I was excited the next morning to see the results and to my utter dismay my face was red! Not super red, but not healthy-looking skin. I was soooo disappointed and was ready to give up on the product, until I remembered that I had used more than normal. So, I waited a few days (luckily the redness only lasted one day) and then tried using a smaller amount again. And voila - nice skin again! Super happy that the product still works for me, I just have to remember to use small amounts and not every day otherwise my skin doesn't like it. I am very grateful that I received this product complimentary from SK-II and look forward to adding it into my beauty routine. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Really good, but confusing... ", 
I really like the formula of this Sk-ll. It feels so soft and smooth. I also like that it's not too thick nor thin and the dropper is amazing!! I have seen some improvements since I began using this a few weeks ago, so I can't wait to see what happens as long as I keep using it. I just wish that there were better instructions on when to use this. Is it more of a moisturizer? apply it when? It's the last thing I apply because on my it feels a little tacky if I didn't. So glad I was able to receive the product complimentary from SK-II. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Smooth & Elegant ", 
I feel SK-II is a innovative product for women that really works. It has been roughly 3 weeks of usage,both morning and night and I can't believe the difference in my facial skin. I am able to wear little to no makeup and feel confident. Compliments come Daily from friends and even my 8 year old daughter has noticed. It's really an amazing product without harmful or temporary results. I received the product free from SK-II and will continue to purchase it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Wonderful! ", 
What a great product! This product makes me skin feel refreshed and replenished. It gives me a nice glow an the packing is great. The price for the full size seems quite expensive but I understand the skincare market for like products is very similar. All in all I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family member if the price was a bit lower. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Miracle Glow ", 
I've been using this essence for a good 2 weeks now and every time I apply this to my skin,it gives this natural glow all over my face,making my skin look healthy. It comes with a very unique packaging and has an elegant shape to it with a pump.I use 1 pump full of the product into my palm and rub it all over my face,concentrating on my forehead,cheekbones and chin areas where I would normally highlight.it feels very light and non greasy. My skin loves the cold sensation this product gives. Dries pretty fast. At first it might feel a little sticky but give another 5_10 minutes it Dries smooth and soft. It doesn't brighten but it feels like I had a tightening mask on but not overly exaggerated. It kinda tightens your skin.The glow stays on until you wash your face again. I haven't tried it under foundation but I would apply over my foundation on the areas I mentioned before just to give nice glow. I am very picky when it comes to face products and scents have big factor. Sk_II GenOptics Aura Essence has a very pleasant scent and doesn't linger all day. I like this product a lot.I received this product complimentary from SK_II but the review is my honest opinion about the product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Dream come true product ", 
This product literally does it all. It evens skin tone, hydrates, mattifies, calms, clears pores, and brightens. Your skin will feel better after one use, but you'll really start seeing the long lasting changes after about five days of using it once or twice a day. It works for all skin concerns and all skin types. It sounds too good to be true, but it really does help with any and every problem you can think of! The bottle is also massive!!! I've been using it twice a day for a month, and based on the amount left, this will last me at least 4 months. I can't recommend it more highly.

" nice glow! ", 
I'm normally so busy with everything that I forget to take care of myself. I have lots of product that requires steps to get the best results, but that leaves me no time to put on the product. I really like that SK-II is just 1 bottle, very easy to use, and pretty too. I haven't started using the product just yet but I will tomorrow!

" Waiting for major results but still like it ", 
So while I have yet to see major results, I do like this cream. It goes on easy, smells nice and does make my skin feel soft in the morning. I will wait to see if it does in fact lighten my sun spots. I do wish the packaging or internet had more info on how to use (ie do you put moisturizer on top or just use it alone). I look forward to see the future results. I received this product complimentary from SK-II. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Wow soft skin! ", 
After 1 tiny amount on my finger, I spread it evenly on my face. The cream isn't heavy and it feels like there's nothing on my face. When I look at myself in the mirror, I do notice nice even skin and after touching my skin... It's even nicely!!! Feels so soft. I can't wait to keep using this to get the best result of the GLOW. I got this product complement of SK-II. Thank you!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
