I’m sure SK-II needs no introduction but for those who are living in a cave, SK-II is one of the most famous and best skincare brands across this globe. A unique and significant ingredient, Pitera, promises to dramatically improve the skin’s natural surface rejuvenation process and delivers supple, smooth and soft skin! If you noticed the faces of SK-II, you would notice a similarity in all their skin. SK-II ambassadors like Tang Wei, Ayase Haruka and Kate Bosworth all have fair translucent skin which GLOWS. To me, that’s the nirvana of complexion and something I wish to achieve.
Was so excited and honoured to be invited to SK-II #ChangeDestiny launch event where I got to meet Korean actress Lee Yeon Hee (who’s sooooo graceful and swan-like hehe), and watch the unveiling of the Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence.
We didn’t color-coordinate beforehand, it was coincidental haha!
This is the beautiful Lee Yeon Hee! Pictures don’t do her justice. She’s super beautiful, tall and most importantly she has F L A W L E S S skin that glows. Tricia, Jeneen and I couldn’t stop gushing over her glowy skin. I’ve never seen anything like this before. It wasn’t just fair and poreless. It was glowing and she’s effortlessly the limelight of the entire event.
SEE HER SKIN!

Two of my favorite dresses designed by Laselle students (:
Was super stoked for the unveiling of SK-II Limited Ed Facial Treatment Essence cos last year’s christmas bottle was super pretty so I reckoned this year’s would be even better!
FLORAL THEMED BOTTLES! I think it’s really really nice and girly. And it really adds a touch of elegance and feminity to the bottles. Here are my favorites!
The yellow set is my favorite! I love the design of the bottle with the yellow flowers, it’s sophisticated but not too loud, subtly elegant 🙂
I think the men’s one is gorgeous! Daniel, you know what to expect for Christmas already ^^
The very next day, we headed back to SK-II again for a meaningful round of gifting and a beauty talk session with SK-II beauty trainer, Louis Chua. Hehe we were bombarding Louis with questions regarding products suitable for our skin types, ways to massage our face and eyes, solution to milia seeds etc etc. Will share the tips with y’all briefly below! (:
Tip #1 : How to apply moisturizer and get a V-shaped face
When applying moisturizer, apply it like how we are doing it in the above picture. Massage it in circular motions 6 times! If you’re trying to achieve a V-shape face, then you got to try this effective massage that he taught us. Simply place both your thumb and knuckle of the second finger at your chin and massage up your jawline. Use both hands! Do this 6 times daily and you’ll see results within a week. I’ve been doing it religiously and it’s working on me 😀
Tip #2 : Eye massage and how to prevent milia seeds
If you have mild milia seed problem like me, then you gotta read this!
Firstly, milia seed is caused by oiliness and uneven distribution of eye cream so you got to learn to spread your eye cream or gel evenly before applying it.
Take a pearl size of your eye cream and put it on your 4th finger. Press it with your other 4th finger and spread it evenly between 2 fingers. Don’t belittle the pressing and spreading cos it help to liquify the cream and spread the oil evenly. Dab 3 spots at the bottom of your eye and 1 on top then massage it gently starting and ending at the inner corner of your eyes, making one full circle. Do it 6 times.
After that, starting from the inner corner of your eyes, massage it outwards and stop at the outer corner of your eyes. Repeat it 6 teims and do the same for the top eyelid as well.
You can also do some eye acupressure for your eyes like pressing the temples and inner corner of your eyes for 5 seconds each. Exert more pressure at the 3rd count (:
Tip #3 : Get rid of neck wrinkles
This is one area which many people neglect but it’s also the area that’s always exposed and shows the signs of aging. You can use your face moisturizer or use a stronger one for your neck. Simply massage your neck upwards. Do it inwards from your collarbone. Remember to get a proper pillow that’s not too high as it causes neck lines too!Also, I learnt from Louis something new today! Do you know that SK-II actually provides in-depth consultations that recommends you the right products so that you can look forward to better quality skin for as long as the next 20 years?#ChangeDestiny challenges us to go beyond following their everyday routine, but to take a closer look at what can be done to change our life as well as our skin.
Without further ado, it was shopping time! But this time it isn’t for myself (: Christmas is coming and I won’t be in Singapore during Christmas so I have to prepare my gifts for my loved ones early. Decided to pick a few SK-II products for my dad, mum, sister and Daniel for Christmas. It was so hard to choose cos SK-II has a wide variety of products but decided to go with their bestsellers for most of the ones I picked.
This cellumination aura essence apparently is the mother of whitening and brightening! Can’t wait to try it on myself also (:
SK-II was super thoughtful to arrange a craft session for us to design our gift box! They even got us TWG macarons to munch on. Super super thoughtful (: Thank you!!!!
Heheh Jeneen’s giftbox is really pretty! Mine is themed “sky full of stars” specially for Daniel (:
So here are all the Christmas gifts I have for my family and Daniel. Pretty sure they’re gonna be so happy when they unbox it cos who won’t love receiving SK-II for Christmas??? I got Daniel the Facial Treatment Essence last year and he loves it! He’s been complaining recently that his bottle is finishing soon, but don’t worry boyfriend (:
On top of the gifts, I also bagged home 3 products for myself to use. I’ve heard too many good reviews about the Facial Treatment Essence and Cellumination Aura Essence!
The bottles are damn pretty I cannot take it!!! (: Can’t wait to have the same glow as Lee Yeon Hee eventually (hopefully hehe). Will do a product review next time in a separate post when I’ve used them for a longer time k.
For now, I believe I’ve given you an idea what to get for your family and friends for Christmas! (: Boyfriends reading this space, trust me your girlfriend would be damn happy to receive a red box of SK-II products! (:
