SK II facial treatment clear lotion

Posted in skincare with tags , , , , , , , on September 25, 2009 by LPB

Clear Purifying Lotion.

Conditions. Purifies. Perfectly prepares skin for Facial Treatment Essence.

SK-II FT Clear Lotion300

This crystal clear skin refining lotion with Hydroxy-Acids, soothing moisturizers and Pitera; It is alcohol & fragrance free. For a perfectly conditioned and ultra-fresh skin, use the Facial Treatment Clear Lotion morning and evening after cleansing your face and neck.

The final part of your cleansing process, this Lotion helps remove residual impurities and dead skin cells. It increases skin’s ability to absorb nutrients from other skincare products.

I use it as a clarifier or toner after cleansing; it hasn’t got the distinctive aroma of Pitera as in SK II facial essence ( which could be a blessing for those who cannot tolerate that yeast-like/fermenting odour ). I find it gentle enough to be used twice a day.

I also like soaking a paper mask with this clear lotion and then apply the saturated mask onto my face for at least 20 minutes so that the lipid soluble BHA ( salicylic acid ) could works it wonder. This is a product that contains both AHA, BHA ( clarifying/exfoliating ) and Pitera ( regenerating/regulating ). My face feels moist, refreshed, renewed and nourished after this ritual. Although this means consuming my treatment  clear lotion at an accelerated pace!

Ingredients:

Pitera®(Saccharomycopsis Ferment Filtrate), Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Methylparaben, PEG-150, Sodium Benzoate, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Salicylic Acid, Lactic Acid, Malic Acid, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cellulose Gum.

Sophyto Super Bioactive Toner invigorates and revives dull, tired skin with organic plant nutrients. Help regenerate your complexion to reveal renewed luminosity while preparing skin for treatment-based products with the purifying phyto-nutrients in this light facial toner.

A combination of Purple Coneflower, White Willow Bark and other botanical extracts in this 99% organic formula deliver a beneficial blend of essential vitamins and nutrients. The lightly scented, Aloe Vera juice based formula can also replace water during your cleansing routine if the water has too much chlorine. Restorative plant extracts help neutralize impurities and assist with overactive sebaceous (oil) glands without causing dryness. Provides a rich source of organic bioactive phyto-nutrients including vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, and C. 

If the water where you live contains high levels of chlorine, or other impurities, use Super Bioactive in its place. Chlorine causes oxidative damage and chemically bonds with the protein in our bodies, which disrupts the skin’s natural protective barrier.  Using Super Bioactive in place of water ensures your skins pH is not disrupted. The loss of the skins acid mantle is one of the side-effects of washing skin with soaps or detergents of moderate or high pH (alkaline) combined with water that contains high levels of chlorine, or other impurities.

My skin loves  So Phyto Purify & Energise bioactive; It may not be the best toner ever marketed, but so far  the best i had ever tried – great aroma, effortless slippage, thorough cleansing, superb moisturization, free of nasty chemicals & green to the environment!

Due to the lack of alcohol, this “toner” will not neither dry out your nor minimize those pores.

It is a great cleansing water with a subtle fragrance that compliment your cleansing regime; It could be used as a light moisturizer as it contains complex sugar and glycerin.

The pump dispenser makes it easy to deliver a controlled amount – perfect for diluting/mixing with lotion/fluid foundation.

It’s a misnomer – as it could not clarifies or exfoliates the surface of the skin, and it is definitely not going to shrink pores or control oil breakthrough.
