This product make me breakout and it's very expensive. But so many people get the very good result from it. I think it's depend on skin type and skin structure of each person.

I bought it after hearing about all the raves. It really stung my face but I noticed my skin got a lot brighter and more radiant after using it. I liked the result but it wasn't worth torturing my face every time I used it.

To me it is, as I am still using the essence with other brands of skincare..( darphin, decleor, sisley..)..but I will suggest you skip layering too many products at once when you just starting the " essence" to see if you have any sensitivity to it....HTH

where did you find this? i've been reading your raves and lemming this as i'm totally addicted to the FTE. their other moisturisers are nice, but don't seem to do much (though they don't break me out which is a huge plus). i was introduced to FTE in london and immediately fell in love with it. but i don't remember seeing this cream there nor in the US (they don't have the line at all anywhere that i've found in france).

SKII essence just not good but great !!

SKII is very popular in Thailand but not the most because of cost of them (so expensive than others). We called Miracle water. I used it for 6 months. The result is Woww !! It's cool !! My face look fresh and bright all the time.

P.S. I used it with Cleansing oil(sometime jojoba oil) and clear lotion.

Where can you get good quality jojoba oil in Thailand? I've been looking but haven't even found any shop that carries oils.

calm down. it's the Facial Treatment Essence and you've already stated that it's too much for your delicate skin, that it stings you....

however, Blacklace has been raving about the Ultimate Revival Cream. *that* might be nice for you, but it's $$$. i've only seen it on eBay (not at a counter) and am just curious where she found it.

LOL I do have a big selection here at home I have to admit. I'm starting to get a bit worried as I don't think there's anyway I'm gonna finish all of them before they're expired. I've promised myself that if a product doesn't agree with my skin, I'm gonna offer to send it to EDS memebers for free in the future. That way it'll be put to good use. Smile

I so would love to meet you and inspect your skin under a magnifying glass! Also dig through your makeup bags to have a look at all those lovely lovely By Terry and Caron products! Laughing

I love the product. Just use it in summer it would make my skin not oily as well as not dry. If not so expensive I would buy again. Very Happy

Hi La Vie,

I got the Ultimate Revival Cream at SKII counter in Selfridges, Oxford St, London. It is also available at John Lewis, London and I agree it is pricey but lasts a long time. One needs just a pearl sized amount.

Hi la vie,

They also have the Ultimate Revival Cream available online at www.bowlinghealthandbeauty.com.

It's available from Saks in NYC as well, I just got a sample jar of it with my last order. Haven't tried it yet though as I am trying not to add so many new things to my routine at once. The SA I worked with at Saks is called Carolina and she was very generous with the samples.

Hi Blacklace!

How much did you pay for the Ultimate Revival Cream? I'm not sure if it's available in Thailand as I haven't been to an SKII counter in ages.

I just got a distress call from my girlfriend. She ran out of her usual skincare set (NuSkin and Lancome) and she used her mother's SK-II skincare set yesterday night and this morning her skin was peeling Shock She's 23 with normal-dry skin and she's not sensitive to products usually. I suggested that she wash her face with plenty of cold water and to stop putting anything on her face for now. Anyone have any other suggestions to help her remedy the situation? Thanks!

Oh NO Sad I think your advice is very helpful. It really would work. I think if the condition still last she should go to see dermatologist. And some brand for sensitive or damaged skin would help, too.
When I am allergic I use Cetaphil's cleanser and cream. They help the skin to calm.

And indeed, the reviews of SKII always differ greatly. I know many people had the same experiences as your friend. In China last year, it was even banned to sell because of that.

it claims that it does not contain alcohol. But I don't think so. And the BA told me that in fact it does contain a little alcohol.
