Tried And Tested: SK-II Aura Bright Facial
Putting the beauty brand through its paces, we tested the Aura Bright Facial from skincare experts SK-II. And the results? Read on...
One of the key treatments offered by the luxury brand, the hour-long ritual was created to brighten and add radiance to skin, while utilising the brand’s signature ingredient, Pitera, a clear nutrient-rich extract for hydrated, youthful skin.
Behind a discreet white door next to the SK-II counter in the Harrods White Hall on the ground floor, the low-lit SK-II treatment room is a relaxing retreat. Renee Solnitzky, SK-II’s skincare expert, began the treatment by thoroughly cleansing the skin with Cleansing Oil, before gently pressing the iconic Facial Treatment Essence into the contour of the face with her hands. Next, dark circles were targeted with a massage, and a cooling fabric mask ready-drenched in Pitera provided 20 minutes of skin hydration. Finally, Renee applied Cellumination Aura Bright and Cellumination Cream EX with a wonderfully relaxing rippling massage technique.
This treatment is perfect if you’re seeking a short respite from retail therapy. It’s so relaxing and therapeutic you could be forgiven for falling asleep on the bed, while the gentle, non-invasive nature means you won’t emerge from the room with any redness or irritation. We noticed instant radiance, and the next day skin was visibly brighter.
The SK-II Aura Bright Facial has a £100 booking fee which is fully redeemable on SK-II products on the day of the facial. To book, call +44 20 7730 1234 ext. 8783.
