    What is it good for?

    PITERA™ Essence works on multiple skin concerns and all skin types to give you Crystal Clear Skin. It is the ONE almighty product you need to moisturize, soften and smooth out texture, reduce appearance of dark spots and fine lines due to dryness, enhance radiance, even out the look of skin tone, make skin look less oily and... the list goes on!

    In fact, the full efficacies of PITERA™ have not yet been uncovered and until now we continue to discover new things it can do.

    Why it Works

    This lightweight liquid is formulated to quickly absorb into skin unlike other thicker serums and essences. Each bottle contains 90% of our natural bio ingredient, PITERA™. Since it so closely resembles your own skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF), skin recognizes PITERA™ as its own, allows it all in, and lets it work its magic in a pure active form.

    Our formula has remained essentially unchanged for almost 40 years, allowing us to witness PITERA™‘s powerful effect on skin appearance over time (in days, years, and decades) for millions of women around the world.

    What else you need to know

    Our story began with a chance observation at a sake brewery in Japan, where a group of scientists noticed the elderly brewers had wrinkled faces but extraordinarily soft and youthful-looking hands.

    An intensive search began among millions of yeast strains and studies were conducted using hundreds of fermentation conditions. Now every drop of PITERA™ is produced by cultivating an exclusive yeast strain under the most stringent conditions, a process that remains SK-II’s most valuable trade secret to this day.

    PITERA™’s pure power of nature harnessed by advanced technology makes it a miracle like no other

    Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (Toner) - 30 mL
    Our best-selling face toner helps remove stubborn impurities from your skin and prepares it for the rest of your regimen.
    Facial Treatment Mask
    Immerse your skin in intense hydration with our cult-favorite sheet mask. Packed with an exceptional concentration of PITERA™, this face mask takes your skin to the next level of radiance.
  • Step 1 (Tone): After cleansing face, saturate a cotton pad with facial toner using 2-3 shakes of the bottle. Gently wipe the entire face, starting with your T-Zone then sweep from your chin towards your cheeks in an upward and outward motion. Use the other side of the cotton pad to gently wipe your neck area from bottom to top with an upward motion.

    Step 2 (Treat): POUR about 2-3 shakes into hand, PRESS palms together and then PAT that PITERA™ goodness all over your face. Continue to PAT PAT the essence until fully absorbed.

    Step 3 (Hydrate): Place the sheet mask over the eye area. Gently spread it over the rest of your face and pat firm. Leave on for 5-15 minutes. Remove and discard sheet mask, then massage the remaining essence into your skin without rinsing off.


    WHEN TO USE
    Use toner and essence twice a day, after cleansing, and before any moisturizing steps.. Use mask once or twice weekly, after the essence.

  • PITERA™: A natural bio ingredient derived from yeast fermentation that resembles your skin's Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMF); Contains over 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids to condition skin's natural functions.

Absolutely adore this product. I purchased it at a cheaper price at the Tokyo airport. Effective product, my face definitely feels supple and brighter. Only downside is how pricey it is, but I definitely believe that it is worth it.

I've been using la mer treatment lotion for years. On a whim I decided to give this a try. So far I'm pleased with the results. I can feel my skin is more hydrated. In the morning it feels soft and looks healthy. I'll definitely buy again.

Wow. Wow. Wow. At this point I dont know if I could even go without this product. For my oily dehydrated skin this has been an absolute lifesaver! It does have a rather strong scent but thats a small setback with all of the benefits!

My favorite essence as it is the most effective. My skin literally drinks this up. It absorbs better than other toners or essences in my experience. Other essences eventually dry up as water does on the skin, but this leaves the skin supple and moist. Over long time use it seems to help balance moisture. I have combination skin and I attribute a lot of the balance Ive achieved to consistent use of this product. Rapidly became a solid staple in my skincare routine. The price point is a commitment and likely a deterrent to a first time buyer. However once experienced the price justifies itself easily. Highly recommend, especially if you have finicky, sensitive skin.
