I was lucky to be among the first ones in Asia to get my hands (and skin) on the new SK-II Stempower Essence, together with the Stempower moisturizer for a survey they conducted a few months ago. I had never heard of the essence before as it wasn’t available in the market yet, so I was really curious to know whether it’s as good as the Stempower moisturizer (love this stuff!) and other essences that I’ve used previously.
You do know that as we get older (ehem, aging) our skin cell regeneration process will start to slow down, don’t you? The Stempower Essence is concocted with a new and powerful Stem-Acanax ES Complex, which targets and transforms the regenerative functions of the skin’s youth activity. In other words, it acts like our skin’s “Master Switch” that enables the protection of epidermal stem cells to restore our skin’s youthfulness. Turning on our “Master Switch” will also regulate our cell environment resulting in protein production to increase and enhance our inner cell density for a bouncy skin with less visible pores.
The first time I applied the essence on my face, I was hooked. Unlike the Facial Treatment Essence which is liquidy, the Stempower Essence is thicker but surprisingly, it goes on very light and velvety. No greasiness at all! And I have combination skin, in case you’re wondering. The Stempower Essence has now become one of my MOST favorite SK-II products, besides their Skin Refining Treatment! I use it after the Facial Treatment Essence and right before applying Stempower moisturizer. My skin feels smooth and supple, and people keep on saying that I have this “glow”. I thought it was just my shiny T-zone. 😛
Best part of all, I don’t need to wear layers of primer, foundation, concealer and powder on my face like I used to. Just a little BB cream and translucent powder and I’m good to go (oh, and eye makeup of course).
Some of you had been asking me when will the Stempower Essence be available in the market ever since I posted the pic on my Instagram. Well people, it will be available at all SK-II counters in Malaysia starting from 18th August 2013. The essence comes in 2 sizes – 30ml for RM395, and 50ml for RM572.
