As I get older, I find myself more and more inclined to try out different beauty products. A few years ago the promise of youthful skin seemed pointless as I felt I was pretty darn youthful. But as each summer passes and each tan fades I wonder if my sun worshiping was all worth it, and at what point all my beautiful beach days would lead to summertime sadness. When I heard the story of SK-II’s discovery and how the iconic Facial Treatment Essence was created, I was intrigued.

It was only by a chance encounter that the scientists observed the soft and youthful hands of aged sake brewers. The astounding sight of the wrinkled faces of aged sake brewers contrasting their soft youthful hands remained seared in the memories of the SK-II scientists. Back in the confines of the laboratory, they surmised that the secret must lie in the yeast that the brewers’ hands were in constant contact with during the sake fermentation process.

It sounded too good to be true, so of course I had to try it out. My skins has to put up with a lot. From constant travel, to new environments on the regular, to tons of sun. I am always battling dry patches, redness, and minor irritations. I wanted to go into the Fall with healthy, beautiful skin, confident enough to go make-up free, which is why I embarked on my #OneBottleAwayFrom journey with SK-II. Over the past month my skin has felt considerably smoother and the even tone is remarkable. My skin is more radiant and noticeably hydrated and healthy. This bottle of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence has officially been added to the travel regiment! Ready to head into fashion month with healthy and beautiful skin.
