Review: SK-II Cellumination Essence EX

About 1.5 months ago, I am very honoured to be contacted by SK-II to not only blog for their events, they have also generously given me a bottle of SK-II Cellumination Essence EX for use and review. Given that I am already a loyal support of SK-II Facial Treatmemt Essence and Skin Refining Treatment which I have posted here and here, I seriously can't wait to try out this new product.

Extracted from SK-II website:-

Only the new SK-II Cellumination Essence EX can provide long-lasting moisturisation and even-out skin discolouration.

Enhanced with concentrated PiteraTM, De-Melano P3CTM, new Pixel WhiteTM and other ingredients, it will improve the micro texture unevenness on the skin brought about by the inevitable stress of modern living. 

If you are looking for a product that improves your aura and radiance, SK-II Cellumination Essence EX will be what you are looking for.

SK-II Cellumination Essence EX is a serum which is to be applied after toner and Facial Treatment Essence and before moisturiser. As you can see from the picture above, it is a milky lotion-like serum with a very light texture. After massaging into the skin, it turns clear and immediately gets absorbed into the skin. I love how my skin feels after applying Cellumination Essence EX as it does not feels sticky and oily.

Now that we have discussed about the initial feel of the product, let's look at effectiveness of this product. In order for me to give a good review of this product, I went down to SK-II counter at Tangs Orchard to have a skin analysis done before starting on the product. The skin analysis is done based on 5 areas: Radiance Enhancement, Spot Control, Wrinkle Resilience, Firmness Power and Texture Refinement. Each area that your skin is in average and above condition will score a 'D'. The more D you get from this analysis, the better your skin is.

Given that I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts, I am very sure wrinkle resilience is not an issue since my face can be an oil field at times. What surprises me is that I score the lowest in 'Radiance Enhancement' as I do not have radiant skin due to my skin having more redness than usual. I got 3D from this analysis, coming from 'Wrinkle Resilience', 'Firmness Power' and 'Texture Refinement'.

After taking this skin analysis which clearing shows that I am lacking in radiance, I have been consistently using SK-II Cellumination Essence EX twice a day after applying Facial Treatment Essence. After a month, I went back to the same SK-II counter at Tangs Orchard and requested for the same skin analysis and guess what? My 'Radiance Enhancement' improved from 31% to 44%!!
My spots have also lighten thus showing an improvement from 67% to 71%. With this, my skin has improved from a 3D to 4D now, wow! The SA mentioned that SK-II Cellumination Essence EX could help in lighten existing spots but at a slower rate than Whitening Spots Specialist which targets to lighten both existing and surfacing spots.

I am truly glad that my skin is showing improvement in the areas that was lacking earlier on and this has certainly strengthen my belief in SK-II products. :)
