I have been struggling with some acne problem, large pores, rough texture and oiliness since I moved to tropics. This lotion really made my skin better pretty quickly. I've always known about SKⅡ and it's amazing reputation but never tried it. I am sorry that I never did!!! With in a week, my face became less oily, but not dry, it's just really balanced out. Pores looks smaller, even toned and best of all, no more major break outs. I am so happy that I found it and despite the high price, I will be using it for the rest of my life! One thing though.... It stinks bad....not strong, but has some weird stinky smell.

Skin Type: Dry / Normal to Dry
Hi. i really wanna know more about albion skin con, my skin is dry combination. A friend of mine the albion skin con isnt that good for dry skin and she suggests me to try sk ii FTE, but i read reviews it is good for dry skin. So which one is better for hydrating and brightening? And how to use albion skin con? On your web it said use after cleansing and moisturizing, so I should use it twice in a row? And how about skii fte? I am confused about it is a toner like albion skin con or pre serum. Because I also have albion eclafutur. Can I combine them all??

Dear Monna,

Albion Skin Conditioner and SK-II Facial Treatment Essence are designed for all skin types. They help to condition and balance skin sebum for healthy condition.

Our customers prefer SK-II Facial Treatment Essence as it helps to refine pores to achieve skin smoothness. However, some customers do not like the smell of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence so they will choose Albion Skin Conditioner instead.

Albion Skin Conditioner should be used after Albion emulsion, such as WHITE CRYSTAL MILK, which is designed for whitening and softening purposes so that the products that applied follows can be penetrated into the skin easily.

After Skin Conditioner, you might want to use essence, such as ECLAFUTUR, for anti-aging and skin revitalization. Then, a face cream to re-hydrate and lock-in the nature moisture of your skin. 

Best Regards,

BeautyKat Team

I am acne prone and currently on a regimen given by my aesthetician. I incorporated vitamin c cellex-c in my regimen. I use that every morning, and it seems to be working. I have read a lot of good reviews on Sk-II Facial Treatment Essence. Is that okay to use with Vit C? How about Benzoyl Peroxide? thank you!

Dear Shanie San Jose,

If you are not sensitive to Vitamin C, you should able to use Facial Treatment Essence. Some SK-II whitening products, such as Whitening Spots Specialists Essence, also contains Vitamin C which can be used with Facial Treatment Essence to enhance whitening result. 

For Benzoyl Peroxide, if you use it in low dosage, such as a face cleanser with Benzoyl Peroxide, it should be fine to use Facial Treatment Essence. However, you might also need a well hydrating product to moist and re-hydrate your skin to prevent dryness and fine lines.

Try SK-II Stempower Essence (for anti-aging, smoothing and moisturizing) or less expensive product such as Juju Cosmetics AquaMoist Hyaluronic Acid which is formulated in gentle ingredients to re-hydrate your skin.

These hydrating essences should be used after cleansing, toning and SK-II Facial Treatment Essence.

I am 24yrs old.i've bought stempower cream & I'm so worried that it'll clog my pores(according to some said)as i've acne prone skin &large pores. BTW i got sk-ii facial treatment essence present but it is for men?can i use it?? Thank you very much for ur reply!!
Dear Elsa,

SK-II Stempower Moisturizer is designed for all skin types. This cream re-hydrates and promotes anti-aging result to your skin but if you worry the texture of the cream, I would recommend you to use it at NIGHT after SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (toner) and Facial Treatment Essence.

I've never tried SK-II Men Facial Treatment Essence but if you want to use it, please apply to your t-zone as I believe most products designed for men is less hydrating and more powerful in terms of refining pores and smoothing out rough skin.

Best Regards,

Hi :) I am thinking of getting the Albion Skin Conditioner and SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. Could you advise me if these are the correct order for application? Cleanser > SK-II Facial Treatment Essence > Albion Skin Conditioner > Moisturiser Thank you!

Dear Ili, 

Albion is owned by Kose so it is better to use with Kose Sekkisei or Kose Supreme Sekkisei for a complete skin care regimen.

If you want to use it with SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, the steps are suggested as follow:

Cleanser > Toner > Facial Treatment Essence > Moisturizer > Albion Conditioner > Essence (use a cotton pad to saturate the conditioner. Pat your face gently with the cotton pad)

 The skin care regimen of Albion is different from other brands. The conditioner is used after moisturizer. Then, use a lightweight sunscreen (daytime) or face essence (nighttime) as the last step of your skin care protection. 

If you think it is too much for your skin, skip the essence and move Albion Conditioner before sunscreen or moisturizer.  

Best Regards,

Hi dear, Could you help recommend the SK-II for my skin type. My skin abit sensitive because I use some lotion that reduce my acne. before my skin is normal and oily. Now I use stempower at night time only Could you help recommend SK-II for my skin type. After clear acne now my face is better, but I have large pore problem and red abit. thanks you for kindly help yana

Dear Yana, 

Have you tried SK-II Facial Treatment Essence after using Facial Treatment Clear Lotion? This product is not designed for sensitive skin though so I would recommend a sample size for your to try.

If your skin condition is improved and no negative reaction after using Facial Treatment Essence, you can use SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Solution as daytime moisturizer which is designed for normal to oily skin for re-hydrating and regulating sebum production. Then, use a sunscreen, such as SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 PA+++ (50g) to protect your skin from sun exposure.

Please tell me the difference in the SK2 Signs up lifter and the Facial Lift Emulsion. I have mature sagging skin. I'm 66.Thanks!

Dear Val,

SK-II Signs Up Lifter is an essence which should be used after Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (toner) and Facial Treatment Essence (essence for smoother and refined skin) for anti-aging and firming results.

SK-II Facial Lift Emulsion is a face moisturizer that is used after Signs Up Lifter. However, if you have very dry skin, and mature skin problem is your main concern, I would like to suggest SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Essence, SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Serum and SK-II LXP Ultimate Perfecting Cream instead. You can refer below web page for detail:

I had been using SKII stempower and skin signature melting rich cream for 3 weeks along with SKII toner and facial essence. But after 3 weeks i noticed that it gives me small bumps on my forehead and makes my skin really dry, my makeup starts to cake in a horrible way and i can see the bumps on my forehead visibly. I am 23 years old. Is it because i combine the usage of stempower and skin signature melting rich cream that causes the bumps ? I do want to like this product and continue using.

Dear Jo,

Please don't layer Stempower Moisturizer and Melting Rich Cream. If you want to re-hydrate your skin, please use Stempower Essence after Facial Treatment Essence but before moisturizer for anti-aging and re-hydrating results.

SK-II Melting Rich Cream is designed for dry and very dry skin types. If you have combination or oily skin, Melting Rich Cream is not suitable for you.

If you still want to use it in low humidity season, please use it at night after Facial Treatment Essence and again, no need to layer Stempower Moisturizer.

Meanwhile, please saturate a cotton pad with Clear Lotion (toner) and gently wipe your face day and night. It will help to remove excess sebum and dead skin cells.

Here is my suggestion:

1) Cleanser

2) SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion

3) SK-II Facial Treatment Essence

4) SK-II Stempower Essence (optional)

5) SK-II Stempower Moisturizer (use Melting Rich Cream at night if it is needed. No need to use Stempower Moisturizer nor UV Protection)

6) SK-II Facial Treatment UV Protection (daytime only)

Does sk11 treatment essence helps to reduce acne and scars on face?

Dear Siti Salwa Rozali,

It helps to improve uneven complexion and pigmentation caused by acne. It encourages cells turnover so customers who use this product for 2-3 weeks, will definitely see the smoothing and refined pores results.

However, if you have oily skin and still have pimples, you might find that the effect is limited. In this case, I would like to recommend Kose Medicated Junkisui instead.

I'm 22 and I suffer from occasional monthly acne and I'm already using a product for that, and now I have marks from the acne and my skin is looking dull but feels oily and dry in some areas. What products would you recommend that get rid of the post acne marks, makes my skin less oily and moisturized, and gives my skin an overall moisturized, bright complexion?

I would like to suggest Kose Medicated Sekkisei Lotion which is used as toner day and night. This product helps to brighten your skin complexion and improves acne mark. 

Another product that I like is SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which is used after cleansing, toning but before moisturizing. It helps to encourage skin cells turnover for smooth and soft skin texture. It improves large pores and sebum production too.

If you want to choose a whitening skin care series that is less expensive and target your skin concern. I will suggest Sofina Beaute to complement the above products. Here are my suggestions:

1) Sofina Beaute Massage Foam Cleanser (170g) (for all skin)

2) Kose Medicated Sekkisei Whitening Lotion (200ml) 

3) SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (150ml) 

4) Sofina Beaute Day Protector SPF50 PA+++ (Fresh) (oily skin) (32g) 

5)   Sofina Beaute Whitening Emulsion (120ml) (I - Nighttime Moisturizer) (oily & acne prone skin) (nighttime only)

Skin Concern:

Question: Can you please tell me what do i need to used first? cleanser and ??? not sure. also how many times a day can i used?

Answer: Here is the skin care regimen of SK-II:
1) SK-II Facial Treatment Cleanser (120g)
2) SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion. This product acts as toner to remove last trace of dirt and dead skin cells for glowing result.
3) SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (215ml). This product is an essence to regulate cells' turnover for smoothing and refining rough and damaged skin. Can be used day and night.
4) SK-II Cellumination Essence (30ml). This product is brightening and hydrating essence for translucent result. Can be used day and night.
5) SK-II Signs Eye Cream (15g). Use day and night.
6) SK-II Facial Treatment Emulsion or SK-II Skin Signature. They are moisturizers with anti-aging result for hydrating and improving dryness. Can be used day and night. Personally, I prefer SK-II Skin Signature as it penetrates into the skin so well without leaving a greasy layer on the skin.
7) SK-II Facial Treatment UV Protection to protect your skin from the damages of UVA/UVB. Use during daytime.
8) SK-II Skin Refining Treatment (50g). This product contains BHA for refining pores and improving oily skin. Use at night only.

Skin Concern:

Question: i am an asian at age of 23 and i am still looking for products that are good for my skin. i tried many but only to find myself breaking out in pimples but yet i have flaky dry skin around the nose and the T-zone while many said i have oily skin for such clog pores. please do recommend if SK 2 is suitable for me.

i easily get clog pores even with exfoiliation and daily wash, i use toner after use with a light exfoiliating scrub wash everyday, and proceed to applying anti aging cream.

i used nivea, Loreal, Olay, Skintelligence, Dior and sadly most of them fail to prevent my pimples. and occasional flaky skin. i even got massive pimple outbreak with Dior and Skintelligence around my neck while i was using them.

please please please do recommend something for me.

Answer: It seems that you have dehydrated and sensitive skin. I am not sure if your skin is oily as the breakout may be caused by wrong products that you use.

Try to avoid products contain alcohol and fragrance which may dry out your skin and trigger sensitive problem. At the same time, use facial scrub 2-3 times a week and apply face mask afterward to moisturize and replenish your skin.

If you are using foundation or makeup base that contain silicone as major ingredient, it may clog your pores even though the product creates a smooth layer on your skin. You may want to skip them for a few days to see if your skin is improved.

Meanwhile, you may have blemishes if you use product with high dosage of Vitamin C. I have the same problem too so I choose Shiseido HAKU for whitening to prevent any blemish. That being said, a lot of people do see the whitening and anti-aging results of Vitamin C.

I will suggest Kao Curel or Rohto Hadalabo for your consideration. These products are mild enough and designed for dehydrated skin for dewy and healthy complexion. Once your skin is getting better, you can use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence to boost up skin's cells turnover for clearer and smoother results. At the same time, you may want to use Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spot Serum for your acne problem.

Here are skin care regimens:

Kao Curel (designed for dehydrated and sensitive skin):
1) Kao Curel Foaming Wash (daily face wash - all skin types)
2) Kao Curel Moisturizing Lotion II (face toner) (normal & combination skin)
3) Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spot Serum (for acnes but you can also apply to t-zone area for refining pores)
4) Kao Curel Moisture Face Milk (oily & combination skin)
5) Kao Curel UV Protection Face Milk SPF25 PA++ (oily & combination skin)

Rohto Hadalabo (designed for dehydrated skin):
1) Rohto Hadalabo Tamagohada AHA+BHA Daily Face Wash (contains mild AHA and BHA for clogged pores)
2) Rohto Hadalabo Japan Goku Jyun Hyaluronic Lotion (Light - for oily skin). You may want to use regular Rohto Hadalabo Japan Goku Jyun Hyaluronic Lotion if your skin is getting drier in this season or your flaky skin problem becomes unbearable.
3) Kose Medicated Junkisui Acne Spot Serum (for acnes but you can also apply to t-zone area for refining pores)
4) Rohto Hadalabo Japan Goku Jyun Hyaluronic Emulsion

For facial mask, you can try Rohto Hadalabo Japan Goku Jyun Hyaluronic Mask (4 Sheets) or Hisamitsu Japan Lifecella Gel Mask European Spa (3 sheets) for rejuvenating, smoothing and calming.

Question: I can't help but to question the legitimacy of this product, considering that the package did not contain an instruction booklet. In any product newly purchases, there should be an instructional booklet that describes the product/history of the company and how to use it, and even in multiple languages. Suspiciously, this expensive product (and the other SK-II product I purchased) from did not provide a instructional booklet.

Answer: Our product is imported from Taiwan but it is manufactured by SK-II Japan. Therefore, you will see Chinese product description, expiration date (in Taiwan calender) and English ingredient list on packing. Please note that product packing varies due to different market requirements.
