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:
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)

Kose Medicated Junkisui Washing Cream is suitable for oily and acne prone skin. You can use this cleansing foam, Junkisui Lotion (used as toner) and Emulsion to improve your skin problem. But speaking about early signs of aging and large pores problem, I will suggest SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which is used after Lotion and before moisturizer. You can buy a sample size to see if it is suitable for you.
I have large pores problem as well and I see my skin texture and pores are refined after using the essence for 2 weeks. Although the visible result may varied, I still suggest you to try SK-II Facial Treatment Essence which is one of our best selling items at all time.
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.
Dear Sue,This essence is used after cleansing and toning. After using Facial Treatment Essence, you can use SK-II Cellumination Essence EX, SK-II Cellumination Day Surge UV SPF30 PA+++ (50g) (daytime) and SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge (50g) at night.
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)
