The other day while waiting for my boyf, I passed by SK-II’s counter at Takashimaya and I thought it’d be a good time to have my skin tested with their Magic Ring!
For those who’re not aware, the Magic Ring is a revolutionary device that can take high-definition photos of your skin and analyse your skin condition based on SK-II’s 5 dimensions of crystal clear skin – Texture Refinement, Firmness Power, Wrinkle Resilience, Spot Control and Radiance Enhancement.
It’s a very simple and quick process whereby a portion of your face is captured by the device, followed by masking of the selected area for analysisng (which the beauty consultant would do), and lastly you get your results!
And here’s my results!!
And my overall skin age is 19 years old, which is 4 years younger than my actual age! As I’m transiting into my mid-20s next year, it’s really important to start caring more for my skin before it becomes irreversible. The beauty consultant said that my results are higher than average but could be improved!
Here’s what she recommended my routine to be to achieve crystal clear skin:
Left to right: SK-II Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser, Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, Facial Treatment Essence, Whitening Spots Specialist, Cellumination Essence EX, Stempower, Cellumination Day Surge UV.
The sequence above is in the order of application. I know some of you out there who use both the Whitening Spots Specialist and Cellumination Essence EX might be confused on the order of usage. The recommended way would be putting on the lighter gel product first (Whitening Spots Specialist), followed by the one with heavier texture (Cellumination Essence EX). That way, both products can be effectively absorbed by the skin!
The Whitening Spots Specialist helps with the visible and hidden spots beneath our skin, while the Cellumination Essence EX helps us to achieve that glow in our skin. She also recommended using the Stempower as a night moisturiser and the Cellumination Day Surge UV as the day moisturiser. I like how the Cellumination Day Surge UV doubles up as both a moisturiser as well as provides sun care protection so I don’t have to waste time applying an extra product!
The Magic Ring Test is available at SK-II counters and I would recommend making an appointment with them if you’re thinking of heading down on weekends because I see that they’re usually very occupied on the weekends! The service is free of charge by the way and I like how they beauty consultants are all very nice and professional and do not try to hard-sell their products! For those who are interested to try out SK-II products but are concerned about whether your skin is suitable for the products, I would recommend you to head down to get your skin tested and get samples to try out before you make your decision.
