" Refreshing and brightening ", 
I am in my late 20's and starting to notice a change in my skin. It is beginning to dry out easier and overall a more dull appearance. After using the essence trial set, my skin is noticeably brighter. Each morning and night after using the essence my skin feels refreshed. I will continue to purchase SKII products, especially the essence!

" Nice Moisturizing Mask ", 
The SK-II mask is a good product. I am 45-years old with regular skin that looks younger than my age. I do not have dryness or acne issues. The SK-II mask is in an individual package soaking in a moisturizer. When you take it out of it packaging, it is saturated (there was a lot of extra moisturizer inside the package that I rubbed on other parts of my body). You peel it open and place it on your face for 5-15 minutes. It felt cool and refreshing on my face for the 15 minutes that I used it. I used it after I spent time in the pool and sun. My skin felt soft and moisturized for a couple of days. It was a good mask but I like my current masks/products better and will stick with them. I received the mask for free from SK-II.

" Spa night mask ", 
I think the SK-II mask was great for my skin. I used it after the long holiday weekend spent in the sun, sand and chlorine. I felt that it gave my skin the boost it needed after exposure to all the elements. If this product is similar to the line it came with, then it may require regular use to see any marked results. It was a nice mask but I don't know that I would pay the difference from the brand I am currently using. I received the mask for free from SK-II. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Skin Tingly Set ", 
I received the SK-II Pitera Essence set complimentary from them and was excited to break out of my skin care cut. I think the set offered some nice benefits. I will start by saying that my skin is pretty darn clear all the time except an occasional blemish. I had read that it offered some skin clearing benefits--and perhaps it does but I had no problems to speak of when I started using the products. I did not notice any scent to the product which was fine by me. The first step in the bigger bottle really made me feel like I needed to use a better face wash because it was pulling off makeup that was left behind from the wash. The second step from the smaller bottle left my skin kind of tingly and clean feeling. I think that my skin took on a healthy glow as I continued to use the product. It felt to me that the products tightened up my pores as well. Overall I was pleased with the product because I felt it offered some benefits to my complexion and did not make my sensitive skin break out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" SK-II review ", 
This is my BzzAgent review of SK-II Pitera™ Essence Set. The set came packaged attractively and looked a lot like a nice expensive spa product. It had little to no scent to it. I wasn't exactly sure I was following the directions properly bc one of the packages had directions on it, but not the bottle itself. Both bottles suggested that you saturate a cotton ball and apply. One of the bottles the liquid came out easily onto a cotton square, the other I had to shake the bottle to get it out and it splattered all over the counter. I was also confused as to why the instructions seemed similar for both bottles, but one bottle was significantly larger than the other. Was I to use one more sparingly? Was it expected that one would run out sooner? They both felt cool and nice upon application. I did not, however, notice a difference in my skin appearance or texture. I gave this a 2 rating bc it did look and feel nice, but due to confusion in the instructions and no obvious difference in my skin, I could not rank it higher. I received this product as compliments of SK-II, not as as a BzzAgent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" surprisingly excellent ", 
I recieved the SK-II Pitera™ Essence Set (#gotitfreefromSK-II,) from Bzzagent to try out. When I recieved it I was not sure what it was actually for. I had to look it up on the bzzagent website. I think it should contain some sort of instructions and some information about the product. I was nervous to try it because I had never heard 9f the brand before getting into the bzzagent comapign. It took me a while to get in a routine of using the products everyday but once I did I saw results. I would apply the lotion after washing my face. It did not make my skin tight or dry like many face products do. After the lotion I would use the essence. I was not sure how to apply the essence but a cotton pad worked great. I used it all over before bed. After 2 weeks I really started to notice a visual change in my skin. It was more even toned and much softer. I also think my skin looks tighter from using this product. I was happy the smell was not overpowering and did not stay for long after applying. The kit also came with a facial treatment mask which I used and loved. I left it on 20 minutes and when I washed it off my skin felt fantastic. I was upset that I did it before bed. I would have liked to use it before going our so I could show off my glowing skin. I really like these products but I do not know if i will be able to afford to use a product this. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Surprisingly nice and refreshing! ", 
I received the SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, Facial Treatment Essence, and Facial Treatment Mask direct from SK-II. I was excited to try it because I've seen the brand, but haven't heard and didn't know much about. Since the beauty market is saturated with so many beauty products, I usually stick to the same regimine and was excited to get to try these products. So after using the products for the past couple of weeks, my skin feels nice and soft. The Treatment Clear Lotion is refreshing to use, and it picked up some dirt my cleanser left behind. The Treatment Essence - now this is even more refreshing. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. As for the mask, it's nice and leaves my face feeling well moisturized. But I can't really comment too much else on it. I think I'd need to use it a few more times because the kit only comes with one. My only complaint would be the packaging. It doesn't include instructions on the boxes or come in the kit. I had to look it up online. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Not sure what it does, but it works! ", 
I'm a bit confused with this product: the packaging doesn't explain what it does (anti aging? acne fighting? moisturizing?). Yet when I apply the SK-II Pitera set at night, my skin feels clean and it lasts till the next morning. After using it for few weeks, my skin feels softer and smoother. The smell is not very appealing but not too bad either when it comes to the lotion and essence. I didn't care much for the mask mostly because of the smell in my nose for 15 min. I have used other masks with better smell and which seem to have a more immediate impact on my skin. Maybe I would need to use the mask several times (however the kit only comes with one ask). I wish the lotion came in a bigger bottle. As a bottle is soft plastic, I end up spraying most of it outside my cotton pad! Also it seems that you need about the same amount of lotion and essence per use though the bottle sizes are different. Overall this product seems to have a positive effect on my skin. I wish the packaging was a bit more explicit on how to use it and what it does - hence the 4 stars out of 5. I received the product complimentary from SK-II.

" Satified with results ", 
I received a complimentary sample of the SK-II Mask, Essence and Lotion; I loved the way they worked (as long as you use them continuously). I have very sensitive skin and also combination skin on my face, while I broke out with some minor zits the first week I continued using it and saw wonderful results. I have noticed my skin is more moisturized and seems more energized in general. I would definitely recommend giving it a try as part of an everyday facial treatment.

" Softer skin and dark spots slightly lighter, wrinkles temporarily gone ", 
This is an update from my last post. A recap from my last post, I liked it because my skin felt softer, my dark spots definitely lightened (but still visible. I used to have really dark spots but after using the product it lightened.) I already have fair skin and the glow on my face makes me happy. And my fine wrinkles have temporarily disappeared. Last time I didn't try the mask. Now this time I tried the mask. Do I like it? Yeh, I like it. My skin felt super moisturized. The mask has this unpleasant very slimy gel. Apply it on your face after the clear lotion (tiny bottle), then skin balancing essence, then use the mask. There was a quite a few of that slimy gel serum left in the mask package. So, I saved it and applied it to my skin nightly for 4 days now. I figure why waste the serum. My skin is so soft I can't stop touching my face. There's no slimy sticky residue on my face. Just softness. Anyway, the smell of the mask is similar to the tiny bottle of clear lotion. It has no unpleasant odor, which is good. It's not like the skin balancing essence, now that one smells. The skin balancing essence has an unpleasant odor like alcohol and saliva mixed together. Anyway, the pros and cons of the pitera essence set are as follows: Pros skin results: skin softer, skin brightened, dark spots lightened (but still visible), fine lines temporarily disappeared (some deeper lines still visible but greatly improved) , reddness disappeared. -if I stop using the products for 3 days my skin is still soft and still has the glow. Pros products : the clear lotion (small bottle) is fragrance free and has a pleasant clean alcohol scent. The mask is the same. Cons: the clear lotion bottle is so small. Why not leave it the same as 2.5 FL oz just like the skin balancing essence? Makes absolutely no sense to me. -directions are not step by step. Some people do not know what toning skin means or what the clear lotion means, or what skin balancing essence means. SKII has to be more descriptive about how to use the product step by step and what it's used for. -the skin balancing essence stinks. It may be fragrance free but it is not odor free. It has this weird stink combination of alcohol and saliva. My face smells after I apply the skin balancing essence. Yuck! I wish this product has perfume in it. I had to use a scented moisturizer to masquerade the odor. And even then I can still smell it. (I have a strong sense of smell). -if I stop using the product for 3 days, my wrinkles start becoming visible again. -there's no description on the package of what this product can actually do for you. After a few days of using it that's when I decided to look it up online. No real clear answer. Supposedly, this pitera yeast is what makes the skin softer and make your wrinkles go away. We'll, my wrinkles didn't all go away. Some wrinkles just temporarily disappeared. The deeper wrinkles are still visible. -very pricey product (not sure if I'll spend that much money on it) Anyway, I really want to give it a 4.5 star rating but I can't because I'm rating everything from the effectiveness of the product to the packaging and instructions and descriptions of the products. If I were to rate only the effectiveness of the products then I'll give it a 4.5 stars. But overall, I'd give it a 3.5 - 4 star rating. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Jalajam107 ", 
I used this product and was not completely satisfied with the outcome, felt as though it made my face break out. ( however will probably give it some more time ) The clear purifying lotion I feel softened my skin a bit though. I honestly can't tell if over time this product has actually made my skin noticeably different. The scent of the treatment is fine. If anything I think the product does well hydrating my skin.

" I really wanted to like this.... ", 
I honestly wanted to like all of the SK-II products. I gave it some more time, but I can not jump on the bandwagon. For the retail price of these items, I expected way more performance results. The Essence did nothing different for my skin in the end. The mask was okay, not as super hydrating as I was led to believe, and the clearing essence did nothing to clear my skin. I would not purchase, nor would I recommend. With that said, each person skin is different, so maybe someone else might love SK-II, but I just can't stand behind the line and say I love it, when I clearly don't. I wanted to, but was let down.

" Very light and refreshing ", 
I received the SK-II Pitera Essence Set from SK-II as a complimentary trial. When I first tried the product I could tell it was different from other products. The facial treatment clear lotion, and the facial treatment essence both felt light, and refreshed my skin. I had a few small blemishes when I started using the products, and after the first couple of days, I noticed they were disappearing. I would definitely recommend the SK-II Pitera Essence Set to anyone who is tired of the heavy, and sometimes greasy, skin care products you are used to!

" I don't like the smell ", 
4 Stars because it seems to work however I don't care for the smell! If it was a more enjoyable smell I would probably be more likely to buy it. It does leave your face soft and clean, if you use it at night when you wake up in the morning your face is silky smooth! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" SK-II is worth a try ", 
While I feel that I would see more significant results using SK-II for several months, I can say that it's had a positive effect on my skin. My skin's texture has improved. I see no improvement in .hyperpigmentation,but I will continue to use this product, provided to me by SK-II, as I can see an improvement in fine lines and wrinkle! Yay! SK-II! Can a girl ask for more?! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" What exactly is the outcome goal? ", 
I received this product to try from SK-II. Nowhere on the package does it say what this product is used for. Is it a lotion to moisten your skin? I don't believe so as it is all clear liquid, and not creamy. Is it for acne? Not that I can tell as there is not a known acne fighting product listed in the ingredients. Is it to smooth our the look of your skin? I do believe this is it! I did some product review research and I think I hit the nail on the head! If the smoother look to your skin is the outcome we are looking for, then I can say that my skin started looking a little less red in my "T-zone" and more even. I feel that the two bottles should be closer to the same size, as you use almost the same amount of each. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Surprisingly Softening! ", 
After using it SK-II Pitera Essence for a few weeks and applying it to my face, neck and hands, I really noticed a difference in the softness and appearance of my hands! I was shocked to see how soft they are now. There's actually a noticeable difference between the skin on my hands and my wrists that I'm considering applying it to my forearms as well. The skin on my forearms is not as soft or smooth as my hands and my hands have actually lightening a little as well. I'm definitely looking forward to continued usage of the essence and want to see if it smooths the skin on my arms as well. When first trying the essence, I was very skeptical as it's watery and doesn't have the "expensive product feel" that typical facial treatments have - eg. thicker texture, oil, etc. I was also a little off put by the smell, but it quickly dissipates after application. It's very easy to apply, and doesn't run as much as plain water. It also absorbs very quickly and immediately hydrates. This makes it a great first step for my morning routine; I apply serum, sunscreen and moisturizer after, so the essence didn't add much in terms of effort or time to my daily routine. I was less impressed with the clear lotion and didn't think I needed it if I was applying the essence immediately after cleansing my face. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Surprisingly Pleased ", 
I had never heard of this brand or line of products before so I was a little hesitant to use them at first. It is a bit of a routine with the lotion and the essence since I'm not used to using multiple skin products all at once. The lotion was simple to use - it's lotion. The essence was a little different at first because it's not like anything I had ever used before. But both of them were light on my skin. It didn't feel like I had a ton of caked on things on my face. The mask was a nice "treat." That too was different because it was one big mask and not a tube-type mask, like I'm use to. I didn't have any reactions to any of these products which is also an added plus. I can't say definitively though whether my skin is noticeably different but time will tell! I received this product complimentary from SK-II but all opinions are my own. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" This Stuff is Amazing! ", 
I have rosacea so I'm concerned about anything that goes on my face. After a few days of using SK-II the redness diminished and the little bumps started to go away. I love this. The other thing I love about SK-II is that there's no smell. There is nothing worse to me than having a heavily perfumed skin care product. There are some that are so strong they make you gag. No so with SK-II. The first thing I did was open the jars and smell everything and there was no discernible smell. That's awesome. The only draw back for me is the price point of the product. I would love these to be about half the price I found online, however with the way my skin reacted to SK-II I'm still going to buy it. I haven't found anything that doesn't irritate the rosacea and actually makes it quickly go away. To me SK-II is well worth the price. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Hydration for a price ", 
I received the SK-II Pitera Essence Set from SK-II to try in exchange for honest feedback. I have already written a review, so this is an update. After almost 8 weeks, I still feel like the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion is a decent product. It surprisingly keeps my super dry face from flaking all day long. I can't say that for pretty much any other lotion I've ever tried, and I've tried lots. That being said, it's not like other lotions. It's more like a tonic--water-like rather than creamy. So, it's quite surprising all around. But, I haven't relied on any lotions for about 2 years prior to trying this product. I've found that an argan oil keeps my super dry face from flaking all day long, too. And, here's the important point, the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion is much, much more expensive. Plus, unless I'm using the Clear Lotion and the Facial Treatment Essence wrong (which is very possible--the instructions are completely uninformative about how, when, and which order to use the products), I don't see any improvement over the argan oil alone. So, not worth the extra cost and additional product for me. I would consider trying the Facial Treatment Mask again, though. My only complaint was that there was so much extra /stuff/ on it that I felt bad only using it once. Still, it did seem like my skin appeared somewhat brighter after using it. I just wish the stuff on the mask was spread over 2 masks and included in the kit instead of just getting one use out of it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Not for me ", 
I'm still feeling the after effects of the products, now my skin is super dry and peeling. At least the breakouts have gone away. I had combination skin prior to use and have not had issues with facial products irritating my skin in the past. Guess this product just wasn't for me. At least I received a sample from SK-II affording me the opportunity to try it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" The Good, the Bad, and the Slimey ", 
I had never heard of SK-II when I received the product in the mail. I was pleased with the packaging of the product, as it looked very high-end in the glossy red box and clouded-clear bottles. I have to say I was a bit thrown off by the names of the product. When I think of "lotion", I do not think of a clear liquid. And what exactly is Essence?! Nonetheless, I was still excited to try the product. I followed the instructions on the back of the pretty red box. When I used the Clear Lotion on the cotton round, I noticed that I had some make-up/dirt residue that came off that my regular cleanser did not remove. I was pleased to see that this step worked. I felt like it was more of a toner though than a lotion. Next I tried the Essence {whatever that is}. It took FOREVER to come out of the bottle. I finally just shook it until I had enough in my palm to use. The directions say to press gently into your skin...not sure exactly how you press liquid into your skin, but I did my best. After this step, my skin felt a little sticky, but I went on to bed. When I got up in the morning my face felt VERY soft and smooth! I was very pleased with the result after only one use. I continued using the product at night and continued getting soft and smooth skin. However, I see no change in fine lines...but I'm not sure what this product is actually supposed to do b/c it doesn't say anywhere on the box or product what it is for! The last thing I tried was the treatment mask...EEW! It was SO VERY SLIMEY! I I almost didn't use it, but decided to go ahead and give it a try. One thing I didn't like about the mask was that it really didn't fit my face-it was too big. I also didn't like that the longer I wore the mask, it didn't dry up at all. It just kept feeling wet and slimey. I wore the mask for about 12 minutes and then took it off. When I peeled the mask off, slimey goo was left all over the edges of my face. I wasn't sure if I should wash it off or try to rub it in & there were no instructions regarding that on the product packaging. So, I went ahead and washed it off. My face felt VERY soft and smooth at this point. Overall, I liked the SK-II product and I am excited that SK-II gave me this complimentary kit to try. I don't understand why the bottle of lotion is so much smaller than the essence. I also think there are probably better names for the product that would help people better understand what the product is and the intended use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Impressive skin care product ", 
First off, the packaging was really nice and it looked and felt like a luxurious brand. I was surprised though that it was such a small package, I felt that this wasn't the full size product but a sample kit. The SK-II facial treatment Clear Lotion came in a 1 fl oz bottle and I thought that it would be done in a week but it lasted for 3. The lotion is a clear liquid with no harsh smell, in fact there was no scent at all and it didn't irritate my skin. The Facial Treatment Essence is a bigger bottle 2.5 fl oz in a thicker glass bottle, this one was fun to use when I figured out how to use it correctly, it felt really nice and refreshing after applying it to my face. And then there was the mask, which felt thicker and more saturated than other facial masks that I have tried before, it was easy to apply and it made my skin feel firm and hydrated, however after I took it off, because I did not rinse off my face (the website says you don't have to) I was left with white residue on my chin and other areas on my face. Overall my experience with this product was a good one. Using this product regularly helped lighten some of the acne scars on my face, they aren't completely gone but they are not as dark as they were 3 weeks ago and after a week of using SK-II I got complements from friends saying that my skin looked brighter and firmer. While this product is impressive, I believe that for such an elite brand the results should be far superior than what they were. I received the SK-II Pitera Essence Set complimentary from SK-II.

" Still Impressed ", 
I have been using the SK-II Pitera™ Essence Set for over a month now and I'm still very impressed! I continue to feel like my skin quality is improving and I am also impressed at how long my bottles are lasting. Although I would admit a slightly larger volume of toner would have been nice. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone and I will definite be including the SK-II line of products in my beauty regimen from now on. I'm anxious to try their other products because I'm so happy with the results from this one. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" SK-II Pitera Essence Set - Nice packaging, Fresh Scent, Interesting Mask ", 
The SK-II Pitera Essence Set arrived a few weeks ago and I was very excited to try it. The colors and materials of the outside box felt very elevated. When I opened it, the bottles of Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and Essence looked fancy, but I realized the material used for the bottles wasn't as elevated upon touching it. I imagine these products in the kit are intended to use with other products as they don't seem to offer all aspects of facial skin care that are important (most importantly a traditional moisturizer or any sort of UPF protection). I found the "Clear Lotion" a little odd. Maybe I am too programmed to use a cream based lotion, but I found it odd that this liquid with a super thin consistency was supposed to moisturize my skin. After using for several weeks I would say that I could absolutely not used this product instead of a traditional moisturizer because it did not rid me of my dry skin. The "Essence" was good. I'm not clear on what this product is supposed to achieve (purpose was not included in the directions), but for me I applied after washing my face and it left me feeling fresh and it smelled great. The Mask was very interesting. I'm used to masks that you apply from a tub/container. The SK-II mask is actually a piece of material (not sure if it is paper or fabric) that is soaked in a clear gel like substance. It has holes cut out for the eyes, nose and mouth...although I felt like the eye holes could have been extended a little on the outside edges. I kept worrying that it would shift and the product would get into my eyes. It was also pretty scary looking on my face (thank goodness I tried this while travelling for business, so my husband didn't see me :). I applied the mask right before bedtime - and left on for about 20+ minutes. When I woke up my skin felt tight (in a good way), but when I looked closer my skin was dry, which was disappointing. In conclusion I would say that the products are definitely different, but not something I would use going forward. This kit absolutely gives a fresh feeling, but isn't as moisturizing as my skin requires. Thanks to SK-II for giving me this complimentary kit to try!

" Facial lover ", 
I am the type who is always at the higher end makeup stores to try the latest products, and facials regularly. FI felt these products worked great. My skin felt clean and refreshed afterward application, and improved appearance after a few weeks. However, it felt to be a little time consuming. One of my favorite masks of all time can be done in 7 minutes with make up applied right afterwards, and my favorite night cream smells fabulous with incredible moisture benefits that no serums are needed with it. So while this was a nice product with many benefits it is not for those who want to add extra steps to the process. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Loved the SK-II Mask ", 
So I received a sample from SK-II of their Pietra Essence Set. I wasn't sure what to expect at first and read through the directions in the box. Still a little confused on exactly what to do with the products in the box, I headed over to their website. Upon checking that out, I knew what my new nightly routine was going to be. I used the products for approximately one week and noticed my face became irritated and began to break out. I stopped using the products for a few days and started again with the mask. I absolutely loved the mask; it hydrated, firmed and felt amazingly refreshing. I then started the product regimen the next day hoping for a better outcome, but to my dismay the irritation and breakouts came back. I think the product has great potential but wasn't right for my skin. I loved the mask and would definitely buy again. It was easy to apply (just lay the saturated mask on your face) and I liked the results. Wish I could say the same for the rest of the items. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Worthless skin care ", 
I tried SK-II Pitera Essence Set as a BzzAgent, but was not impressed. It was like wiping water on my face. I didn't notice any results and felt it was a waste of my time. I ended up throwing the rest out after trying it for a couple weeks. The face mask was a wet mess and so cheap. I couldn't bear putting it on my face, so I threw it out too. Very disappointed.

" an amazing mask! ", 
I used the mask after a long flight and I am so crazy happy I did - my skin dries out when flying and I used this mask at the hotel and let my skin marinate in the benefits. it was so moist - with the Pitera essence. The result was AMAZING. My skin instantly felt plump and hydrated and looked like I'd slept for 12 hours. I had that extra glow to my skin ! I will never fly without this product. It's amazing !!! I received the product complimentary from SK-II [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Good Product, but did not WOW me. ", 
This review is for the SK-II Pitera Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and Facial Treatment Essence (complimentary products were provided to me from SK-II) that are meant to be used together, which I liked (but did not fall in love with it). I am 45 years old with normal skin and not many signs of aging (i.e., very few wrinkles and dark/age spots). The clear lotion should be applied via a cotton ball all across your face and neck. It definitely removed dirt, makeup, and impurities that my regular (expensive) face wash/soap did not completely remove. I could see the residue on the cotton ball. Afterward, I followed with applying the essence directly on my face with the palms of my hands. My face felt clean, smooth, tight, and nourished after using these two products. However, SK-II did not provide a daily cream moisturizer. After using the clear lotion and the essence, I felt that my face still required a daily moisturizer to balance out these products. Therefore, I used my regular SPF moisturizer (an expensive brand). Using these three products together (the two SK-II products and my own moisturizer), my face felt clean and soft. I could tell after using the SK-II products, that they were lifting dirt because when I first used the product I had a couple of white heads pop up, which then went away with continued use. Therefore, the product worked – it cleaned and softened my face, and then after pulling dirt out of my pores, I had no further whitehead breakouts. So, although the product worked and my skin benefited from it, I prefer other products that I have regularly used. I will continue to use this set, but I do not think it will be my go-to skin care product in the future. [Note: SK-II also provided to me one application of its Facial Treatment Mask, which I will separately review.] [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Fantastic product ", 
I was lucky enough to review the SK-II Pitera Essence set. The entire three stop process was easy to use and felt great on my skin. I enjoyed pampering my skin and it felt great after I used the products. The clear lotion felt cool on my skin and was very easy to use. The mask was my favorite part as it felt like I was at a fancy spa. Sometimes when products come with more than one product it can be overwhelming. This was easy to use and took no time at all. I received this product for free to review from SK-II Pitera. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Complimentary Review ", 
I did receive this product to review from SK-II completely complimentary. I was pretty excited to try the new treatment as I am always looking for something new and exciting to try. While I do believe this would be a great product for some, it was not for me. I only say that because I have extremely dry skin and my skin was left tight and flaky. I need cleansers and treatments that are extremely moisturizing. If you have the luxury of having great skin, this product would be for you. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Very Hydrating ", 
SK-II is very famous in Japan. I had never got around to trying. brand image for me is famous celebrity and actress are using SK-II. I am so glad to able to purchase anywhere in USA. Essence: I am Asian. Essence worked perfect for me, and Asian skin. Essence helped deeply hydrate the skin. After 2 weeks to use, Dark pigmentation on my skin is getting lighter. Mask: worked immediate effectively!! I think worked same as Essence, but one shot(mask) dramatically hydrate to my skin. I have to amid that Pricey but worth it!

" Didn't see enough results..... ", 
After using the free SK-II Pitera Essence Set for the past month, I'm not very impressed. I haven't seen any major changes in my skin. The Lotion and Essence were both light and didn't irritate my skin, but they didn't improve its appearance in any way either. The mask is definitely still my favorite product and actually felt good enough for me to consider buying it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Already noticing a difference with SK-II!! ", 
I think the Sk-II has helped my skin tremendously! I will definitely buy it!!! It made my skin look a little younger and also helped my acne/blackheads, especially the blackheads! My face is in much better condition just from the SK-II! The only downfall is that the clear lotion is half the size (or smaller) than the essence so I would recommend buying an extra bottle of the clear lotion so you would run out of both of them at the same time then. Thank you very much SK-II for letting me try the product for free in exchange for my honest review/opinion. I will definitely add these products in my skin care line!

" Tried it! Will probably like it. ", 
I tried this for the first time today and I think I will end up being a fan. Being pregnant, I need to be careful with products I use but I figured trying this at least once wouldn't hurt. I like the way my skin feels and I am sure I will like this product and can't wait to be able to keep using it regularly! I can tell the ingredients are high quality.

" Only a supplement to those that require more moisture... ", 
I received the SK-II Essence kit for free from SK-II and I still feel privileged! I've always wanted the opportunity to use such a well known and highly revered product! To formulate the best review possible I decided to use the product for a full month before completing my review and stating my opinion. Let me start by saying I'm a 35 year old pale white woman who doesn't have a vast beauty routine. I exfoliate daily and moisturize twice a day (using heavier lotions in the winter months). I don't normally have acne and my skin does have a few fine wrinkles. When I started using the regimend of both the toner and the lotion twice a day I noticed that my skin just felt dry. A week or so later I noticed that if I used the product too close to my eyes or lips that I'd end up with a pimple in that area (so uncomfortable). After a few weeks I did notice my skin was a bit less wrinkled in some areas around my eyes and forehead, but still I was feeling dry. By the end of my month long review my skin was just plain parched, however there were obvious improvements in my overall tightness and skin tone. I've decided that this treatment does work but I'd need to supplement it with a high does of moisture from some other source. This being said, I used the mask at the end of my month and it was just what I needed! Sooo soothing. I wish I could get ahold of whatever cream came with that mask! So yes. This is a great product to tone and tighten your skin, but I'd suggest also using a second moisturizer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Not for my skin... ", 
These items were not my favorite. The mask made my skin feel nice, but it was a little on the messy side. I did not feel I had a use for the mask. The treatment essence seems like a wasted step. I did not like that I couldn't squeeze the bottle; I had to wait for the liquid to "fall" out of the bottle. I have a very youthful, acne-free face and I always have. This product is not really for me. It did not do anything to me or for me - other than take up more time in my morning routine. The clear lotion was okay. I found the the name a little deceiving. It should be called a toner, as that's really what it is. I like that I can squeeze the bottle. It felt very refreshing on my face. No major scent, which is always a bonus. Overall, this is a great set ... IF you need it. I don't feel it benefited me, but will help someone! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" I Want More Masks! ", 
When I first received this set, compliments of SK-II, to review, I was so impressed with the packaging. The items are beautifully boxed and the Facial Treatment Essence is in a large 2.5 mL glass bottle. The instructions included on the box are a little unclear at first, because there are some added descriptions to the names, and the "Facial Treatment Clear Lotion" is also a toner, which is helpful to understand when the Facial Treatment Essence instructions say to use this product "after toning skin." So, first went the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, the smaller of the two bottles. I put a little bit onto a cotton ball and swiped it over my skin. It picked up some makeup residue, and felt clean and refreshing. So far, so good! Step two is the Facial Treatment Essence. This is very light, watery, with almost no fragrance whatsoever. This I patted onto my face. It was all very refreshing, but my skin did feel a little dry after using these, so I ended up using a moisturizer afterward. I saved the sheet mask (one is included in this kit) for a few days into my new routine. The face mask was the highlight of the kit for me. This sheet mask made my skin so soft! I rubbed some of the excess serum from the mask on my hands, and they felt so nice and supple. The set lasted me about 5 weeks. The Facial Treatment Clear Lotion ran out just a couple of days before the Facial Treatment Essence. At the end of the 5 weeks, however, I did not see any changes in my skin. I did break out a little more than usual while using these products. The only one of these I would use regularly is the sheet mask, which did exactly what I was expecting, felt fabulous, and made my skin feel deeply nourished.

" SK-II A Nice Treat ", 
I have to admit that I was skeptical about this product. I waited to buzz about it because I wanted to give it a chance. I usually do not splurge for expensive skin treatment products for myself and when I do I usually take a considerable amount of time to research it and look at reviews. While I will continue to use this product until it is finished, I am still not sure if I can tell a difference in my skin after using it. But to be fair, I believe that the longer you use a product, the better the effects. I do like the lightness of the product. It feels like water and I wasn't sure what to think about that. But the more I used it, the better I Iiked it. It just feels refreshing especially as the weather has warmed. The mask was not what I expected. It was saturated with a creamy product and the mask fit very well and hugged most features of my face. I didn't mind wearing it. My kids said that my face felt softer after I was done. I have to admit that I can see myself treating myself to a mask every month or so. My face felt very clean and refreshed after the mask. I didn't want to put make up on after I used it and went make-up free all day. I would recommend giving this product a chance based on my experience.

" Unfortunately Unimpressed ", 
Unfortunately, this product did nothing for my complexion. I am 30 years old and have pretty normal skin, some oiliness in the T-zone but otherwise free from blemishes except for the minor hormonal flare-up here and there. I have some redness in my cheeks and some sun damage, although I do use sunblock every day. I used these products twice a day for about 3 weeks and I did not see any change, good or bad, in my skin. The good points: the lotion and essence are both light on the skin and have a very faint scent, they are non-irritating, and didn't cause any sort of breakouts. The mask felt nice on my skin. The bad points: didn't notice any difference in my skin from using these products. I appreciate the chance to take these items for a test run for free even if they didn't help me - always fun to experiment! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Quality skincare set ", 
SK-II provided a me a free sample of SK-II Pitera Essence Kit in exchange for my honest review. It included Essence, Clear Lotion and a Mask. I really like using this product. It produces a subtle effect at reducing a few wrinkles that I have, especially the deep one I have above my left eye. I've noticed that my skin is smoother and more even. I don't have as many breakout either. The mask is rather fragile when opening it and putting it on your face. I tore it in several places because it was so saturated. I wore it for a full 10 minutes. It left my face feeling fully replenished with moisture for weeks afterward. My skin has remained noticeably softer as well. The mask is something I will definitely buy again.

" Incredible Skin Care Line ", 
Amazing products! I have combo skin (oily and dry), few fine lines under the eyes, sun spots around cheek bone area and minor texturizing little white bumps. After using these product for almost a month, I noticed the sun spots has lightened up a lot but the fine lines did not show any improvements. However, my skin has more of a glow and the overall texture of my skin has improved a lot. I noticed a great difference after applying my makeup. It looks so smooth and less bumpy. After cleansing my skin, I used the clear lotion first and then the essence, followed by my daily skin care regimen. Both the clear lotion and essence are water-like liquids. Direction says to apply with a cotton ball but I sprinkle about a teaspoon into my hands and apply directly to my skin. I felt the cotton ball absorbed too much of the product. One con to the product is the smell, especially the essence product which has a slight saliva odor but luckily it does not linger long and dissipate quickly. I also tried the mask and left it on for an hour. I did not notice any difference and it felt like any other mask I have used in the past. I am seeing great results and I highly recommend these products. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" SK-II Pitera Essence Set ", 
I recieved the SK-II Pitere Essance Set from SK-II to try for free and give my honest opinion. When I first opened the set I was surprised by the small size and wondered how long it would really last. I was also a little confused by the bottle listed as "lotion" that really looked like water. It is more like what I would consider a toner. I have somewhat sensitive skin so when I started using the products I was hoping it would not dry my skin out or cause it to be itchy. I am happy to say my skin has not been iritated at all by the SK-II products. I really like that the Essence and Clear Lotion are light and water like. Not greasy or heavy at all. The biggest difference was how soft my skin felt just after a few days of use. Not quite as soft as my 6 year old daughters face, but close. I have red patches under my eyes that did not seem to dissapte, however I am not sure if that is from sun exposure or actual discoloration of my skin. As I mentioned, my skin did not dry out or become irritated. I did not have to use another lotion on top of what was included in the set. This SK-II Piterra Essence Set is on the expensive side as I do not usually spend a lot on facial care, but for someone who normally has irritated skin that can become overly dry with products, the SK-II set seems to be worth it's cost. I cannot comment as to how well they work on reducing dark spots as luckily I do not have those...yet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Somewhat Dry ", 
I have used SK-II Pitera for a few days. I like the thought of the product however, I have extremely dry skin and this seemed to make it more dry. I need to have more lotion or oils in my cleansing products. I think if you were to have normal to oily skin this would be a perfect product for you.

" Very refreshing ", 
This product was received free from SK-II in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are 100% my own. I've used many skin products to control acne, dryness, oily skin, etc. I was skeptical. I wasn't overly impressed with the product, but I wasn't let down, either. The clear lotion was definitely my favorite. I can't use super oily products, and this was just the ticket. I like that it's a clear liquid, and it doesn't feel caked on. It definitely left my skin feeling refreshed and kept the moisture locked in. I liked using it overnight to really allow it to absorb into my face. Plus, I generally shower at night, so my pores are open and able to soak in the moisture. The essence was something that caught my eye, and it seems to have a nice smell. Not oily or cakey, either, but I really don't see that it did much of anything for me. All in all, it's a refreshing couple of products, as my title states. Definitely great for summer usage when your skin really needs a little something, but the last thing you want is to put a ton of stuff on your face in the heat. I saved the face mask for a super dry night after a long day in the sun. My face was (oops) pretty burnt. I generally have to use something like baby oil after too much sun. This worked well at setting some moisture back in and preventing too much peeling. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" Softer skin and dark spots lighter ", 
I was so excited when I first received the SK II PITERA ESSENCE SET. On the box, it's just information about what's inside the box, such as the mask the clear lotion, the skin balancing essence and all it's ingredients. When I opened the clear lotion (the tiny) bottle, I noticed it's fragrance free. Which is not bad because it really doesn't have an odor to it. Trust me, I have a good sense of smell. Although, I prefer it has fragrance in it. Then I opened the skin balancing essence (the larger bottle) and it kind of smells. I mean, yes it's "fragrance free" but it is NOT ODOR FREE. The skin balancing essence has this weird smell like a combination of alcohol and saliva. Yuck, yes, I know! That's the best I can describe it. So, I'm not liking the smell of the skin balancing essence at all. I really wish it has fragrance in it. So, after using the skin balancing essence I immediately have to use my Aveeno face lotion spf 30, because it has a pleasant smell, so I can masquerade that odor. After the first 2 days of using it my skin, day and night, felt so soft and smooth. Then after two and a half weeks of using it, I noticed my dark spots lightened, fading. It's not totally gone but just lightened. I have dark spots, like really dark spots. I get them from just one to two days of full exposure to the sun. It's just all over my face, t-zone, I just absolutely hate them. I haven't used the mask yet because I'm looking for a calm weekend to unwind and relax so I can use the mask. I'm a busy mom of 2. So, I'll write another review just on the mask and an update on the clear lotion and balancing essence. Will I recommend the product? Sure. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

" WOW! THIS IS AMAZING !! ", 
My skin is so much brighter. it has made my skin wonderful, having that translucent glow After 14 days of using it, I can't really show in the picture but I feel my skin is less oily, or maybe not oily anymore. Like seriously and I am not trying to hard sell this product. When I woke up in the morning, my skin is not oily, not over hydrated and my face is brighter. and it really gives that nice glow on my skin. My redness has been totally reduced. AMAZING !! this has done things that prescription rosacea medicine could not do .My Foundation and makeup application in the morning is easier and looks so much better. My skin is smoother; there are some pores but they’re not that obvious. My skin is a little firmer too. Overall, I think I have to give this more days of testing to see the final results.
