Stylebysense.com: SK-II is famous for its pitera content, which believes regular use can result in balance, moisturizing and radiant skin. SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, which is one of the products within the facial treatment range, is a wipe-off clarifying lotion that gently removes dirt and dead skin cells to nourishing the skin, leaving skin clean and perfectly conditioned. Unlike some clarifying lotion with high content of alcohol, SK-II Facial Treatment Clear Lotion is a watery type of toner with AHA content that refines skin texture and improves the overall look and feel of the skin.
The user is advisable to wet a cotton pad with the clear lotion and gently wipe over T-zone, followed by U-zone and neck, but avoid eye area. It is always advisable to apply the clear lotion or any clarifying toner in upwards direction as it helps to wipe off the dirt and traces of make-up reside from the pores. Besides, it is often questionable on the amount of toner needed for each application and most would recommend the size of a coin with a diameter of 4cm, but I personally find it easier to apply and more effective when the cotton pad is soaked wet, at least it will not hurt the skin during the application.
It is noticeably that the clear lotion does not dry up the skin, in fact it gently removes dirt and traces of make-up residue, while prepares the skin for subsequent skin care regime. One of the advantages of clarifying your skin in preparing for the subsequent regime is it helps better penetration and absorption of the moisturizer into your skin.
After applying with this clear lotion, the skin becomes smooth, clean and clear. Besides, the cotton pad is observed to turn brownish after applying it onto dirty skin, an indicator of its power in removing dirt and traces of make-up. You will be surprised to see significant difference with and without using this marvelous clarifying lotion.

My news years resolution this year was to improve my skin I purchased a range of SKII products and have committed to using them daily for a few months. See my thoughts so far below.
First some background, my skin type is normal to combination, generally it's pretty good. My concerns are constant redness on my cheeks, many visible pores (black heads) on my nose which I have never been able to shift, every few weeks I get some white heads coming through on my forehead and chin area and general skin tone unevenness. In the past I have used all sorts of products most recently Clarins and Algologie but I have been thinking about SKII for some time now and decided it was time to give it a go!
I purchased the following products which I have now been using daily since Jan 1 Facial Treatment Essence, Skin Signature (day) moisturiser, Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, Facial Treatment Gentle Cleaner (tube) and the Facial Cleansing Gel (pot).
I bought the two cleaners as the sales assistant suggested I should use the Gel at night to remove make up and the Gentle cleaner in the morning as it's more gentle (and it smells really nice and rosey). However, I have not been using the tube cleaner recently as I dont like the way it feels on my skin my skin feels to 'squeaky clean' and a bit dry after using it (which is strange as its supposed to be the more gentle of the two). On the other hand I LOVE the Gel cleanser, which does not leave my skin with this feeling, it feels beautiful and silky on my skin so I've been using this day and night.
All other products have been great so far While I still have the same pores on my nose, my skin looked really great during week 2.
Now its week 3 and we've had a few really hot days in a row and I had some pimples come through on my forehead and chin.
Overall, I'm very happy with the range so far but am looking forward to continuing to monitor my skins progress over the next few weeks with the products. It is very expensive and I want to see some serious results if I'm going to purchase again.
I love searching this site for others thoughts and reviews if anyone is interested, I'll continue to post my progress with the range over the next few months!

I've incorporated this into my SKII regimen - only using it at night after cleansing, and before applying the facial treatment essence. I've never used a toner with AHAs in it before, so I don't know how others would compare, but this one does a great job with keeping my pores clear, and quieting any hormonal breakouts that are on the verge of coming to the surface. It depletes pretty quickly though for a $60 product, so I'm going to be on the hunt for a comparable but less pricey alternative.

One of the better Toners I have used. When used in conjunction with the Facial Treatment Essence, it works wonders. i like the fact that it does have AHA and I heard its supposed to lift dead skin cells as well (functions as a scrub). When used with the FTE, its magic. Its fine on its own but not as good as it is with the FTE!

This is rather a good toner and it contains similar ingredient as the treatment essence but with only 1/3 of the essence price. It is not hard to decide to see/use this clear lotion as essence replacement instead. It does not break me out and I do feel it helps heal my squeezed pimple fast. It is my staple toner now.

In general, this brand doesn't get enough love. The ingredients correct all kind of skin conditions. Regardless whether you have dry or oily skin, it normalises it. It improves texture, skin elasticity and ups the performance of other SKII products applied.
The clear lotion is like water, but it works wonder. I have experimented with and without the clear lotion in my skin care regime and I SEE the difference. It is expensive but it works! Thus, I am putting up my travel sizes for swaps to share the love.

I bought this product , the facial treatment cleanser , the essences , aqua physics serum ,the aqua physics moisturizer and the clear solution moisturizer after hearing such good things about it , it did absolutely nothing for my skin , didn't tighten my pores or anything , also i believe it made my skin breakout even when i didn't use the aqua physics in the regime , i would also wake up with very oily skin. I also bought another set for my mother including the cellumination serum , she also said did nothing for her skin , so was very disappointed after spending over $1000 on this regime for the two of us .

i really like this toner because it contains salicylic acid which is good for my acne-prone skin. while i am undergoing treatment for my acne, this toner has not aggravated my condition or caused any breakout. in fact, i think it has helped a little and i don't know if it's due to this toner or my new scrub, my skin seems more radiant now :) i kinda think it's due to this toner because i don't use my scrub that consistently.

Bet I am one of a few who has negative review on this product. I attempted using this product a year ago[and forgot to review it].
Though I experienced breakouts from initial usage of the product, I decided to persist using it as I thought my skin needed time to get accustomed to its ingredients. Sadly, this was a wrong move for this product as my skin got worst and I stopped using it after 3 weeks [discarded the entire bottle!!!]
- Breakouts experienced on second day
[along jaw line, chin and forehead]
- Every morning, my face experienced some form of stickiness when I used it the night before
In all, it did not work out for my skin and made it worst instead.
