Most Helpful Positive

Worth every cent
I have been using Pitera Essence for a few years now and didn’t realise how good it was until I thought it was a waste of money and decided not to buy it anymore. Within a week of not using it my skin changed. It no longer felt hydrated and the glow had completely gone from my skin. This is a product that is worth every cent.

Most Helpful Criticism

Gentle and hydrating
I find this product quite gentle and hydrating. It feels like water on my skin. I don’t understand what is the fuss about. Maybe I have not used it long enough. It’s only 4 months ago until I purchased this bottle. Not sure it does anything for pigmentation over time. Overall this is a nice toner for my skin. I have not noticed any positive or negative change to my skin texture
  1. Worth every cent

    I have been using Pitera Essence for a few years now and didn’t realise how good it was until I thought it was a waste of money and decided not to buy it anymore. Within a week of not using it my skin changed. It no longer felt hydrated and the glow had completely gone from my skin. This is a product that is worth every cent.
  2. The best essence ever

    When I first started using this, I didn't notice any difference in my skin condition. But I still use it anyway because it's quite an expensive essence and I just felt the need to finish it (boy, the best decision ever). With constant use, morning and night, I can see great improvements on my skin after roughly 5 months - from dull, uneven skin tone to brighter and healthier skin. I even received compliments from friends about how gooey my skin looks (lol I'm so vain).

    Also, the essence is not sticky at all. It has a watery texture that absorbs really quick. It has a light scent I didn't quite like, but I can deal with it ;)
  3. Good essence

    Its feel very light on my skin, not sticky at all. Help your skin prepare for the next steps of skin care product. But minus 1 point coz it so pricey.
    Wont purchase again due to the price, and currently Im using Missha one which also feel very good and just 1/3 of SK 2 price tag.
  4. A holy grail product for a reason.

    When I started using this I didn't notice much difference until after a week or so. I found my skin was more hydrated, more even in tone and my makeup was sitting more smoothly - probably from the extra hydration and softness I developed from using this every day. Not much of a smell to it which is good. It's watery but lasts a long time and is well worth the high price point. Will repurchase.
  5. Didn't see a difference

    I wanted to try using essences and thought no better place to start with than with this cult product. For better or worse, it didn’t deliver results beyond light hydration and some skin softening, and I was definitely expecting more with this price point.
  6. Fantastic product - gentle exfoliation

    This product is wonderful. It's a gentle exfoliator without harsh scrubbing which can damage the skin. My skin feels and looks much better after using this.
  7. Amazing product - but buy the set

    Wonderful product, staple in my beauty routine, but save yourself some money and buy the set which includes this product + a small lotion + mask - for the same price!!!
  8. A beautiful product

    I have sensitive, acne-prone skin. I was searching for something to use before applying my creams and serums and stumbled across this - and thank god I did! It's beautifully luxurious and I have noticed my skin has evened out impeccably and it is less red/blotchy. Love this essence!
  9. Gentle on the skin

    This essence is so gentle and hydrating on the skin. I like to put a few drops into my hands and press it into the skin, it feels really refreshing and soothing on my skin and although it doesn't feel like it's doing a lot, over time I have definitely noticed that my pores are more refined and my skin has a clearer texture.
    It does smell a little funky but I can excuse that for how nice of a product it is!
  10. Not bad

    Hey I’ve been using this for a week now and it took me a few days to work out how to use this properly in my own way so once I cleansed and tonned I apply this on a cotton pad soaked then rub over my whole skin I wait 5 mins or so till it’s all sinked in before applying serum or cream
  11. Gentle and hydrating

    I find this product quite gentle and hydrating. It feels like water on my skin. I don’t understand what is the fuss about. Maybe I have not used it long enough. It’s only 4 months ago until I purchased this bottle. Not sure it does anything for pigmentation over time. Overall this is a nice toner for my skin. I have not noticed any positive or negative change to my skin texture
  12. Best essence water serum around the world

    simple ingredients, more than 90% pitera. Though no that much Hydrating, it can smooth your skin texture and give you a balanced and stable skin without AHA or something like that. Highly recommended it to all people in the normal to oily skin.
  13. Great hydrating essence

    Fermented ingredients in this essence are amazing to brighten and hydrate my skin. Holy grail!
  14. great hydrator

    I have combination skin and I use this product every time after show and I can see it did what it says keep my skin brighter and glow. However it doesn't smell friendly.
  15. Tested on animals - do not buy!

    This is a cult beauty product, great results, worth the money yadahyadah but...the brand tests on animals. Cue disgust and sad face emoji! If anyone considering using this product has a soul (and conscience) you will find an alternative. I will not be repurchasing solely based upon this and *fun fact* notably the majority of brands marketed across Asia are tested on animals. So it's a big No from me, I will instead be buying the Tatcha essence to replace the SK-II.
  16. Great hydration

    Love this stuff - just soaks into my skin and makes everything brighter. There are times when I'm not sure if it's doing anything, but then notice a difference once I stop using it.
  17. worth the iconic status

    The essence has helped keep my skin moisturised, supple, (possibly) clear, and (I dare say!) bright. It's always been out of my price range and was lucky to be gifted a 230mL bottle. I had no idea what I was missing out on - it is now part of my daily regime.
  18. Brightening

    For sure this product is effective in brightening the complexion. I also find that this helps absorb my moisturiser better. It doesn't have a sticky feeling. Very comfortable to put on the face. No stinging and no irritation. I have my teenage daughter using this and she loves it too!
  19. Loving it so far

    I took the plunge and bought this product, despite being a lot more than what I’d usually spend on face products, and I don’t regret it at all. Whilst I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks so it’s hard to comment on long term benefits, my skin always feels amazing after using it. Very smooth and clear. Will finish the bottle and decide if it’s worth the money, but so far I’m very please, and yep have already recommended it to friends
  20. Highly Recommended!

    Fantastic product. I pat this product on as soon as I'm out of the shower. Every. Single. Time. I've seen a dramatic improvement in my skin tone and much less break outs. Highly Recommended!
  21. Wonderful for dry skin

    I’ve used this on and off for years. It’s perfect as a toner and preps the skin for hydration well. It works to reduce dryness and clears the skin well.
    For ref I have dry ageing skin.
  22. Amaze

    My everyday go to/must have. Extremely moisturising and keeps skin clear, supple and soft
  23. On the fence

    I used this product many years ago when it first launched. It didn't work for me then. After many raves from friends recently, i bit the bullet and bought another bottle to try it out again. Maybe my skin will react better this time. Unfortunately, it still didn't make a huge difference that warrants the price tags. Will continue to finish the bottle and most likely won't repurchase AGAIN. It probably works for some but definitely not for me.
  24. Really works to brighten the skin and smoothen

    My skin has definitely brightened up after using this product for a week. Many people have complimented my skin recently!
  25. It really does work

    I bit the bullet and purchased this to prep my skin in the lead up to my wedding. I already have quite good skin, but have noticed a huge difference to my skin. It is smoother, brighter, and “glassier” and I’m so pleased with the results. The price is steep but for me the essence 100% delivered in everything it promised.
  26. Amazing Results

    i have super dry and sensitive skin and this worked amazingly!

    i received a small sample/trial sized bottle and came back the following week to purchase the full sized bottle! i am very close to finishing the bottle but unfortunately won't be purchasing it again for some time as it is a little out of my price range.

    in the meantime, i'll try to find a dupe whilst trying to save enough to purchase it again!
  27. Not a miracle product but a good one

    This is a product that I constantly found myself looking at, reading reviews, wondering whether I could justify the price, which you, reading this review, are no doubt also wondering. It's true that there are alternatives with similar ingredients that will provide you a close-to similar result, for only a fraction of the price. But if you have the finances to purchase this product and try it out on your skin, I would definitely recommend it, because for me, and for many other people, this product is formulated really well, and the Pitera ingredient does provide good benefits in the long term. Repurchasing it is a bit of a struggle financially though!
  28. Magic??

    I have really fair and sensitive skin and when I use this essence it really calms my skin. I notice with consistent use my complexion is clearer and my skin is more balanced (not as dry and less oil in my t zone).
    I just wish it was cheaper, but it is totally worth the price.
    I recommend this to friends all the time, it’s magic in a bottle
  29. Holy grail essence!

    Best facial essence I have used. My dark spots has lightened up and my skin is so soft. I have tried other brands but I always come back for this.
  30. Highly recommend

    Its worth every single penny. Leaves my skin brighter and glowing.
  31. Great product!

    Wow, I’m not one to splurge on something this expensive, but when I got the trail size of this and noticed what it did to my skin, I had to buy it. At first, it didn’t seem like it was doing anything... it just seems like a weird smelling water, but I kept using it everyday and several weeks later (good things take time!), I noticed a dramatic reduction in the size of my pores, the appearance of acne scars and the oiliness of my face. I have never used anything like it before. I highly recommend this! I’ve been struggling with acne and acne scars since I was a teenager, but using this along with Philosophy’s Purity cleanser, I have been saved!!
  32. Feels lovely and refreshing!

    This product feels so refreshing and lovely on my skin! The consistency is like water so it soaks in very quickly, and can be used with other products or under makeup. Although I love the feeling on my skin, I didn't notice any noticeable improvements. Due to that and the price, not sure if I would purchase again.
  33. really nice

    It's expensive but it feels amazing on the skin. I won't use it everyday and alternate with a different essence so it can last me longer - but it doesn't disappoint when my skin needs it.
  34. Expensive but worth it

    A must have for sensitive, redness prone skin. Keeps skin clear, calm and youthful. Goes a long way so worth the price tag
  35. Can't live without

    I've been using this essence for the past 4 years and I absolutely love it. I've even gotten my boyfriend on to it. While it is pricey, it's the best base. In summer I don't use anything else over it in the daytime, except sunscreen. I don't break out, it doesn't clog my pores, it's just magic!
  36. great essence

    I liked using this essence, it did brighten my skin over time. My skin sometimes did feel a little dry afterwards if i used too much. I do think there are other essences out there that are cheaper and work just as well.
  37. Leaves skin bright and glowing

    I received this essence as a gift and have enjoyed using it. It leaves my skin feeling soft and glowing. It looks and feels like water and is weightless on the skin and is absorbed really quickly.
    While I've loved using this. I find the price a bit of a deterrent and can't really justify the spend when I can find other products that work as well for much less (i.e. the Ordinary).
    If money is no object then I'd highly recommend this. It was a pleasure to use.
  38. Best essence around

    My friend's skin had improved dramatically & when I asked her what products she used to achieve this, she highly recommended SK II. I decided to try it as I have problem skin. After using it for a few weeks, my husband commented that my skin was softer and less oily. My friends also said my skin looked better. I also felt that my skin was softer and nicer.
    I now use this product every morning and night. All you need is a few drops in your palm, then tap it all over your face and neck. I don't like putting it on a cotton pad because the pad soaks up so much of it. I don't mind the smell (it's very faint so I hardly notice it). I find that if I apply anything on my skin after applying the essence (eg serums or moisturizers), I don't have to use as much of these other products because they glide on very easily over the layer of essence. This is definitely a product that I cannot go without!
  39. Indispensable

    I've been using this since 2007. I was first given a bottle as a present and have continued using it ever since! It has a "yeasty rice" smell which I have gotten used to and I actually don't mind because I know that's the natural scent and nothing fake is added to this essence. I use it right after cleansing and toning before I hydrate. I feel that it has helped maintain my skin because I haven't done much for it until this past 3 months. Despite the lack of effort I get a lot of compliments for my skin. So ... I can't think of anything else "fancy" that Ive done except for this product.
  40. Good staff

    I use this product every night after my tonic, my skin feels moisturize .
    I put small amount in my hands and I press into my skin.
  41. amazing essence

    I've heard a lot of good stuff about this essence and decided to try it out myself, it definitely does not disappoint! It makes my skin so soft and smooth, it has a really subtle, nice scent. I have combo-oily skin and I like to just use it by dropping a few drops on my hands and pat gently on the face. I can see there's actually a difference when I start using this essence compared to when I don't. The only downside is that it's a tad expensive. but that might not stop me from repurchasing it!
  42. Gave me irritation and little bumps

    This I tried, and wanted to love, but it really irritated my skin, and made it a weird bumpy texture. I've since found another better product that is more effective in my opinion. I would say, don't believe the hype, get a tester to try for yourself and research what else is out there.
  43. Love It

    I'm up to my second bottle, and I think I'll go again for a third. I definitely noticed a difference after using this. I have sensitive skin that goes quite red, and this product definitely calms my skin after use. I only use a few drops directly onto my hands (not a pad) and pat into my face.
  44. Stinky

    I think this is a nice essence to soften the skin and prepare it for the skincare routine.
    I take a few drops and pat it into my skin.
    I have gone through several bottles but have not seen a great difference.
    And after a while the fermented stink really got to me and now I can't bear to use this.
    There are now many other similar products out there and I prefer those without this smell.
    I have heard if you stop using this you will notice how good this was but I have gone months without it and have noticed no change.
  45. The perfect essence

    I love this essence so much and think it's definitely worth the price. I got it a couple of years ago as a present and have been repurchasing it myself since. I have combination skin and I think this really helps to balance my skin. It makes my face glow! It also make my skin soft and more bouncy. I use it every morning after washing my face. It is the perfect base for the rest of my skincare and helps my serums absorb better. I pour a little bit in to my hands and gently press it into my skin. The literal only downside to this product is the price, but I just look at it as an investment in my skin!
  46. Great stuff

    I was introduced SK-II in my late 20s and it has been my skin-saving product ever since. The price is truly high but to be honest worth every penny. I spent late nights, work stress, eating horribly, but this treatment took all signs of that away. I would definitely continue to use this as much as budget allows.
  47. Worth the splurge

    Rather than buying several cheaper essence and trying this and that hoping it will work, buy this treatment essence instead. Save your time a lot.
    It works wonderfully for me and I would have bought this earlier. I put ir before sleep and I woke up with a very soft and plump, something rarely happened to my dry skin.

    I only tried this for a week ans my skin never felt better, like a well deserved treatment esp I'm entering 30's this year. For other improvement I still need to see it longer but for me who rarely buy expensive product I didn't regret the purchase and appreciate well made product itself from now on.
  48. Amazing, but get the value pack!

    This product is absolutely wonderful. Even if I just use this on its own I am left satisfied, with glowy and hydrated skin. The smell is a little funky, but with repeated use it tends to go unnoticed. Great for face, neck, hands and ears! (You can't forget your ears)! If you want even more bang for your buck, Adorebeauty sell this exact product along with a sheet mask (also divine) and the clearing lotion all for 99 AUD. Why not have all three for the same price?
  49. Beautiful clear skin

    I really didn't want to like this but I really noticed a difference with my skin. I find it's best to use it with other products in the range for the best result. I've heard of people decanting it into a spray bottle and using it like a mist. However it seems such a waste. I pour a little into my palms and pat it into my skin. Really helps to brighten skin!
  50. Love it

    Left my skin looking bright and clear. I love this product, my skin feels and looks great.
  51. Believe the hype!

    I've wanted to try SK-II for a long time and finally decided to try this product. While it's definitely expensive, you use 1-2 drops (on the palm of your hand and pressed into your skin) at a time, so it lasts a lot longer than many products out there. In that sense, it's great value for money, especially when I add up all the products I've tried and thrown out after finding they didn't work with my skin or I didn't like them!

    As a bonus I received a free gift pack with other products (Clear Lotion, Treatment Essence, Cellumination Deep Surge EX and a facial mask) so with the purchase of one product I could trial the full cleanse, tone and moisturise SK II experience.

    Using the Facial Treatment Essence on its own has made my skin noticeably softer to the touch and the texture looks finer. This came about after a week or so, but you feel the softness in your skin earlier than that!
  52. Great product

    I love this product. You use it after cleansing and toning your face, and before your moisturiser. Pour a few drops onto your palm and spread over your face, then pat it in.
    It has an odd smell, not the most pleasant, but you get used to it, and more importantly it works wonders on your skin. Basically it gives my skin a nice, clear, even looking tone. If you're going to use just one or two products from the SK-II range I would recommend using this one.
  53. may improve skin tone

    I was using this product really quickly as I was putting it onto a cotton wipe and thought this was not good value for money. When I started just tipping it onto my fingers and putting it on my face I noticed I was not using it so fast

    My skin looks quite nice, but am not sure there is any significant change. Maybe a small vein has faded a bit. It could be that since using this product I am paying a lot more attention to my daily beauty regime. I have bought a replacement as I will try it for a while longer. I did tick it smell great but it actually has no smell which is a good attribute for a facial product.
