SK-II Facial Treatment Loose Powder Review

Have you ever heard of the famous SK-II Facial Treatment Essence? Some of SK-II's skincare products are super phenomenal, especially in Asia because of the patented brightening properties 'Pitera' that you can only find in SK-II products. However, today, I'm not going to talk about the goddess of essence that is a favourite to almost Asian beauty enthusiast.

I want to talk about their loose powder, well, maybe it's new for you?

I know SK-II's price is definitely high, making it one of the most expensive products out there. How about the quality?

I got this loose powder while I was in Indonesia, I bought it from the retail. At that time, I wanted to buy a soft and fine loose powder that won't clog my pores. I could say after more than 1 year of usage, this loose powder doesn't clog my pores at all. That is a plus.

As you can see from the picture above, the size is quite big, make it super bulky to bring on a trip. It comes with a beautiful burgundy-red colour, which I think looks elegant.

There is a thin plastic sifter inside the plastic divider, but, it's quite a problem to use the sifter (for me). I find it a bit hassle so I don't use the sifter much for everyday use.

The big puff is soft and fluffy, but I prefer to use my brush sometimes to set my make up quickly for a more natural finish.

The powder itself has microscopic particles, it is excellent for controlling the oil on my nose. I think the accurate way to describe the result is a satin skin that isn't too matte. I've never experienced the oh-so-matte look by this powder as this powder will blend to my skin in a few minutes.

It has a soft beige colour, but almost transparent when applying to the skin. Personally, I think this powder suits people with fair to medium skin tone because it has a brightening effect, but since it's colourless I guess you can try if you're curious!

So, is this good for oily skin? I don't know. My skin is sensitive, normal to combination with a bit freckles on my cheek and acne scars on my jaw. I find it's good for controlling the oil on my nose and jaw. It sets everything on my skin if I wear my primer and foundation at the same time, the result is like my own skin.

I really love this loose powder because I think the formula isn't just like other finishing powder I have tried, I like something that is soft on my skin and doesn't make my skin breakouts. A powder that makes my skin looks healthy and less like zombie. It has calming properties on my skin, and I don't think I'm going to change my loose powder for a long time except if I find something better.

Because of my love for this product, I've been featured on Datumou-recipe here for 10 Beauty Bloggers’ Favorite Japanese Products article. You could check the post as well by clicking the link to see the other 9 products from Japan and my short opinion for this loose powder there.
