Product that delivers!
Perfect addition to my skin care regimen this summer! Results are almost instant! After a week of trying the product, I can see my skin is clearer and more hydrated. I can now skip putting foundation everyday. I feel more confident going to work with truly no make up look! I am now shopping for my next SK-II product to try! Best skincare brand I have tried so far!

Brighter and glowing skin
Been skipping any primer, foundation, cc cream, etc because it feels more natural just by having no make up! Got a lot of compliment as well saying i look like a 10s something (no kidding, i’m 24 though). The FTE, genoptics aura and Deep x surge are my quick and ultimate skin care routine for just 6 minutes, really efficient for busy professional!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!
I've been using SK-II for a few weeks and I absolutely love it. This product is super lightweight and does not make you oily. Since using it my skin has less discoloration and a glow out of this world. Its also, perfect to use prior to make up application. Talk about a flawless makeup look. My #1 absolute love for this product is the fact a little goes a long way. Yes, one drop will give you enough coverage.
