Daily stressors can aggravate the skin over the course of a day, making it look dull and dry by night time. SK-II believes that within a 24-hour cycle, the skin can get damaged if not nourished properly. For that reason, SK-II introduced two new essentials, the Mid-Day Miracle Essence and Mid-Night Miracle Essence, to deliver a boost of crystal clear skin anytime, anywhere. Created for women on the go, the Miracle Essences even penetrate through makeup to lock in moisture, preventing potential visible effects of oxidative stress instantly and strengthening the skin barrier over time.

We’ve put both the products to the test, so find out how they fared:

When we first received the products, we thought carrying two bottles of sprays around in our handbag was unnecessary. When we’re running around from place to place all day, it is also very unlikely for us to remember to take the products out for a few spritzes over our skin. However, we persisted in using these two Miracle Essences to find out whether they’d change our skin for the better.

Containing high levels of Pitera™ and MoistureLock Complex, the specially-designed formulas of these two Miracle Essences feel more lightweight compared to the original Facial Treatment Essence. When sprayed onto the skin, the products give a cooling sensation and instantly brighten our appearance. Aside from that, we didn’t really notice a difference on the first day after using these products.

Our skin sometimes gets dry and flaky throughout the day. Regarding that, we’re happy to report that the Mid-Day Miracle Essence really helps to keep our skin hydrated. Within three days of use, we noticed that our skin was less dry and there was no flakiness whatsoever. We also find that a few spritzes of the Mid-Day Miracle Essence helps keep our makeup fresh and promotes longer wear, especially when it comes to foundation and blush which tends to disappear throughout the day.

On the other hand, the Mid-Night Miracle essence really soothes the skin and our senses, helping us feel relaxed and stress-free. It feels refreshing, and helps to lock in all the skincare we’ve applied before bedtime. We noticed that this product makes our skin glow the next morning, and it promotes a healthier looking appearance overall.

We love how fine the mist particles are and the spray bottles also mean more hygienic application. Unlike the Facial Treatment Essence, we do not have to apply the product using our hands or cotton pads. With these two Miracle Essences, it is more convenient for us to get the goodness of Pitera™ while we’re on the go and for that reason, these two spray bottles would definitely be staying in our handbag. Yes, these products are pricey, but they’re definitely worth the investment.

The new Mid-Day Miracle Essence and Mid-Night Miracle Essence are available at all SK-II counters in Malaysia from 15 May 2015. The SK-II Mid-Day Miracle Essence retails for RM232 per 50ml bottle and similarly, the SK-II Mid-Night Miracle Essence retails for RM232 per 50ml bottle. For more information, kindly access this website.
