Great review. Years ago I got corralled into purchasing the entire SKII line. You are correct to mention the sales. I bought my SKII facial line in Neiman's. My sister asked if they had any sales or discounts. They said no but since my purchase was "substantial", they gave me two extra products for free. The one product I didn't see in your review was the SKII Facial Treatment Repair C. What is your opinion on this product?

Thank you Brenda! That's great that you were able to get some free products in lieu of discounts, it shows that it never hurts to ask! The Repair C is new to me, I haven't seen it before and had to Google it, but it seems like a more hydrating version of the essence due to the addition of hyaluronic acid and glycerin. Will add this to my wishlist and update my review when I do try it!

I usually buy my fte in Changi airport. I think nothing beats their price (lemme know if I'm wrong) I got a set of two fte bottles (230mlx2) for S$258 (black friday sale) at krisshop. Original price is S$304 for two bottles without black friday sale.

I haven't been to all the duty free shops to compare so I can't say, but that is an excellent price! This is why I have duty free shops listed as the best place to purchase SK-II outside of Japan.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful post. SK II is one of the brands that I want to try, but it is so price and I don't want to do trial and error. I can refer to your post before I purchase anything. :-)

I've always been curious with this brand but never really seen any decent reviews on it. Everything is always so glowing and exceptional so I really welcome this one. I'm not so averted to the brand anymore having a better idea. I definitely want to try out that Genoptics serum. I'm curious about the glow!

Thanks Sonia! I think people either love or hate SK-II, and I'm guessing that not too many of the haters are writing reviews, haha. The Genoptics Aura is lovely, hope you get a chance to try it!
