SK-II Facial Treatment Mask is a deeply intensive, moisture-boosting mask enriched with Pitera. It deeply hydrates the skin, just like a facial, leaving the skin more radiant and crystal clear. The mask is a cotton fabric that can be used by people of all skin types, particularly those with concerns about dryness and rough skin texture.
Originating in Japan the mask is commonly used by Japanese brides everyday for a week leading up to their messing so that their skin is in a glowing, radiant condition on the big day. I've wanted to try a SK-II Facial Treatment Mask for a while but I was put off by the price. It is very steep but I kept on hearing rave reviews about this product. I did tons of research and finally bit the bullet and purchased 10 sachets of the masks two years ago. I thought to myself, my face is super dry and the heat in the office is blasting, so why not treat myself.
I decided to break one of the sachets out last Saturday and film it for you guys. Basically, this is a thick paper mask coated in a gel-like liquid. The liquid is their secret ingredient called Pitera which is a combination of vitamins. Also, the liquid feels very comfortable on my face and it doesn't dry it out leaving your face dry and brittle.
Here are some questions I had and the answers to them:
Why aren’t the instructions on the box or the packaging?
Was it worth it?
Any Cons to this product?
Yes and I will be honest and say that this product is hard to get in Canada. SK-II please restock in Sephora Canada again because I really struggle to find this product without any high shipping and handling fees. Recently, I bought 10 packets of the mask at Sephora US and got it shipped to my address through a online shipping company. However, I did find a distributer selling the masks on amazon so I will link it below.
Let me give you guys a hint to save money on these masks. I normally purchase 10 sachets from Sephora US during the bi-annual VIB SALE and they last me six months. Also, I re-use the masks to get the most of the Pitera essence. So, when I open an individual sachet and place it on my face for the first time, I save the packaging and the extra liquid inside. After I am done with the treatment, I re-fold the mask, carefully put it back in the package with the residual liquid and tape it shut. Then I store it in my fridge until next week. This process works for me and I will definitely re-purchase the SK-II Treatment Masks again and I highly recommend it.
