If you go to SK-II's official site, you can learn a lot more about pitera and what it really does. It is a lightweight, clear formula with 50 micronutrients to condition your skin. It prevents spots, reduces fine lines and thanks to its watery texture, can be worn under makeup without making your skin greasy.
An even skin tone is the hardest to achieve. Even if our skin has cleared up and we have a porcelain glow, we still need several products to achieve consistent color. The Facial Treatment Essence gives you an even tone and better texture so you'll be less dependent on other products.
The Facial Treatment Essence is key to your nighttime beauty ritual, but you will also find that it preps your skin for almost anything. Chloë Grace Moretz, one of the brand's ambassadors, swears by the essence and uses it as a prepping product. You can use it like a primer, but most importantly, use it if you plan to wear some heavy makeup or if you need several touch-ups throughout the day.

The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence isn't really a substitute for a toner or serum, but meant to work along with them. Just take two to three drops in your hand after you have cleaned and toned your face. Massage it over your face and neck. The formula is almost like water so it's very convenient. Do not use it after moisturizers, serums or setting sprays.
If you’ve been binge-watching all the A-lister beauty routines on YouTube, you’ve probably noticed a tall, opaque bottle on each of their dressers. And we couldn’t help but wonder, what is this curious “miracle water” that seems to be a hit with almost every celeb, from Kate Bosworth to Chloë Grace Moretz?
As you know, skin care essences are huge right now. They are less concentrated than serums and can be used after toner for an added layer of hydration. The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, which has become an essential part of every celeb’s beauty regimen, is made of over 90 percent pitera — basically a combination of amino acids, essential oils and organic acids. It’s the signature ingredient in SK-II’s essence.
The essence is not just an anti-aging wonder, it also aids in skin renewal and gives an amazingly smooth texture and blemish-free skin. It leaves your skin so refreshed and glowing that you won’t need any filter on Instagram. Dianna Agron, for instance, preps her skin with the Facial Treatment Essence before her shoots and calls it the holy grail. “Gets your skin just really glowy, dewy, hydrated,” she explained in a Vogue video.
You can buy the Facial Treatment Essence on SK-II’s official site for $179.
