Best treatment essence: SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
You don't get voted a winner three years in a row without being one of the greatest beauty products of all time
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, RM459
Year after year we come back to this cult product, but can you blame us? After 40 years with the same Pitera-based formula, SK-II's Facial Treatment Essence still brightens, hydrates and boosts skin clarity like nothing else on the market. After a few weeks of twice-daily use there is no denying your skin will G.L.O.W. Best of all, it works on absolutely every type of skin, including those that can be a little sensitive. If you won't take our word for it, take Cate Blanchett's: the Aussie actress has used SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for 15 years and probably has the best skin in Hollywood. The secret ingredient is Pitera – a bio-ingredient exclusive to SK-II whose semi-magical mix of organic acids, vitamins and minerals do excellent things for skin cell turnover. Trust us on this one: even if you already have good skin, this will make it better.
