SK-II Skin Signature

“…… skin is recharged from within, so whatever your age, you can always look younger. “
Skin power, according to SK-II global principal scientist, Misa Ito, is the skin’s natural ability to withstand internal and external stress and maintain its texture, radiance and firmness. It is clinically proven to look up to 4 years younger in just one month, giving skin total beauty through a balance of firmness, smoothness and radiance.
SK-II Skin Signature is proudly introduced by SK-II in 2009. Contains Oli-Vityl from an olive species that thrives in Tuscany, Italy. Skin Signature is also to replace the previous version, Sign Treatment Totality.
I was overwhelming when I spotted a tiny sample (HKD18/2.5g) of this at Bonjour HK store. Skin Signature is retailing at THB4990/80g here, pricey or not, I certainly didn’t want to spend so much on something that lack of genuine reviews.
Being an anti-aging cream for early mature skin, I’m quite surprise the texture of the cream is very dewy and lightweight, yet very moisturizing. It penetrates into skin rapidly, non-greasy and leaving skin smooth and subtle glowing.
Generally it was sufficient for my combination skin, although it wasn’t in very low humidity environment that my skin felt tightness within 3 hours. In the circumstances, I would just use it together with serum or face oil. Apply thickly would also help, probably that is why it comes in a big tub.
It didn’t cause me breakout in 5 days sampling time. In fact, if applied it alone after liquid lotion, I was happy that less blackheads and less oily skin in the next morning. As a whole, I think this moisturizer is more suitable to oilier skin or those dislike oiliness, dry skin may need additonal care for extra moisture boosting.
Despite I never understand the detailed bio-chemistry action in the skin deep, I believe the natural skin power is powered by overall inner health (the main reason of why I take supplement), as well as healthy lifestyle and diet. Antioxidant such as Q10 is good enough to me. Still, Skin Signature is very pleasant to use, especially it’s fragrance free.
