Fantastic product! I simply love how it leaves my skin really soft and plump. I'm into my second bottle already. I use it in place of moisturiser and it works great for my combi skin. Although it's pricey, a bottle can last pretty long. Tried the other SKII products but I think the treatment essence is the most effective of the range.
After enduring for 2 years, finally caved in to try the smaller size of the SKII essence. My skin at the time is slightly peeling, dry and yet oily. This is not a toner, despite feeling like water. It does hydrate skin, without any heaviness. Like to use it in the morning and just skip moisturizer. I'd say, good for sensitive oily skins too.
Very good and effective product. Hydrated my skin and reduced my breakouts. Pores become a little less visible and the blackheads on my nose are starting to disappear after just one day of use. My skin is also becoming more radiant. But all that could also be due to the facial clear solution that I'm using together with this. The price is horrendously high though. The packaging (the bottle) sucks! They should package it in a bottle that releases liquid more readily. I have since switched to ORIGINS which seems to do a better jobs of making my pores smaller, keeping my skin soft, supple and radiant.
This was nice.. didn't dry skin out or break me out, but it was just like any other toner!
Well, I tried a 30ml sample bottle and used it for like 3 days now. My skin is combination and senstitive and this essence did not make me red or itchy. It does a good job of hydrating my skin altough I haven't seen signs of radiance yet. Will update again as I continue.
Although this essence is on the pricier side, it really works! I used to have really oily and sensitive skin that breaks out quite often. After about a month of usage, my face is really clear and radiant. The blackheads on my nose are totally HISTORY! If I feel a bump threatening to rear its ugly head, I just dab the essense right on it at night and believe it or not, it subsides by the next day. Truly a product I will buy over and over again! I use this in conjunction with other SKII products.
THis is a great great product. Lately, I've been plagued with bumpy zits which don't quite come up but won't quite go away (the result of spending two weeks vacation in Australia where the dry weather wreaked havoc on my skin). I had a sample of this and I saw improvements right away. My skin is more radiant and smooth. Being oil-prone, my skin tends to react to treatments, this one is fresh and left no residue on my face. A winner! Extremely pricey though, hence the 4 rating.
I've finally found my miracle product! It hydrates, normalizes my combi skin, fades dark spots, and tones my skin so supple firm. It's surprising that some people breakout from this essence. For me, it's just an all-in-one saviour for my skin. In fact, I feel blemish free now and never been happier. Besides it's oil-free, color-free, and fragrance-free. Now, it's just my cleanser and my treatment essence and I can be out of the door! I pour this into my mask tablet, saturate it to use as a weekly mask too. Plus a 150ml bottle can last me more than 6 months! Though it's expensive, it's worth every penny.

I just discovered a much cheaper drugstore alternative - Neutrogena Fine Fairness Toner! It's only US$6.50(approx).
