NEED TO KNOW
Skin dullness is not just due to melanin production or pigmentation. It's caused by "anti-aura" parameters or "skin clouds" that block skin's aura from shining through. The GenOptics Aura Essence is designed to help clear these "skin clouds", to bring out your skin's aura. Powered by the one and only PITERA™ and GenOptics Aura Technology, this lightweight serum is packed with brightening ingredients and absorbs quickly to improve dullness and reduce spots caused by sun damage for clear, radiant skin. The formula—which has been reformulated to minimize the look of age spots—combines active brightening ingredients with PITERA™, which is a bio-ingredient rich in vitamins, organic acids, minerals, and amino acids that work together to enhance skin cell renewal.
WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW
GenOptics Aura Essence serum is part of the SK-II skin brightening products collection, which was designed to illuminate and brighten skin by diminishing the look of dark spots, revealing a more radiant complexion. It is colorant-free and not tested on animals.
