SK-II LOYAL USER OF 13 YEARS Better known to the majority of her fans for her acclaimed performances on the silver screens of ‘Elizabeth’, ‘The Aviator’, ‘Notes on a Scandal’ and ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, Cate Blanchett’s passion for acting goes far beyond just movies.

A thespian in her own right, Cate has won critical acclaim for her stage performances in productions such as ‘Hedda Gabler’ and ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’. The five-time Academy Award nominee has also been the co-artistic Director and CEO of Sydney Theatre Company since 2008 – channeling her energy towards fostering appreciation, creation and direction of theatre productions.

One of the intangible benefits of using SK-II is that I think about my skin far lesser than I used to. My skin is now so stable and so much more resilient than it was 11 years ago because of SK-II. And because I don’t spend time thinking about it, I have so much more time to look outwards and at the world.

Cate’s Essentials


Facial Treatment Oil

It’s completely non greasy and you get this incredible hydration and the subtle lavender fragrance is divine. I put the Facial Treatment Oil on my face first like a moisturizer or primer and then put makeup on top of it. This gives my skin a glow but also means that it absorbs the foundation so you don’t get that caked-on look.

Facial Treatment Essence

Having used SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for 15 years I can confidently say it has not only transformed my complexion, but quite possibly changed the destiny of my skin as well.

Brightening Source Derm Revival Mask

When I’m on the plane or before an event I’ll put on a mask. I find that the Brightening Mask really gives my skin a great radiance. And not forgetting the Eye Mask to mask how tired I am running after my 3 boys.
