We’re going to go on record here and say Chloë Grace Moretz has amazing skin! It has an even tone and looks radiant and crystal clear without any blemishes. So what’s her secret? She revealed it in Bare Skin Chat with James Corden (of The Late Late Show and Carpool Karaoke fame).
Bare Skin… What?
In case you’ve been oblivious to everything happening on the internet, Bare Skin Chat is a popular SK-II web series on YouTube where Chloë Grace Moretz lets James Corden in on her beauty tips.
Set in her bathroom (which is so Instagrammable), the two of them get up to hilarious antics as she keeps it real and shares her review of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (a.k.a. Pitera Essence), the one essence she uses to achieve crystal clear skin.
You know James is always on top of trends, so we’re hardly surprised when he got Chloë on the ASMR trend in the latest episode titled “ASMR Shh”. For the uninitiated, ASMR is short for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, which refers to the calming and tingling sensation on the skin which usually begins on the scalp and moves down to the back of the neck.
Most ASMR videos use sound to create that tingling feeling and, in the video, they get up to plenty of fun while Chloë shares her Facial Treatment Essence review. Our fave part? Probably when James pours out the Pitera Essence and it sounds just like those skincare ads (now you know the sound is real!). Another high point? When they started slapping each other!
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence Review: Why You Need This Cult-Favourite Product
The watery essence is so popular in Asia that those who swear by it call it “Miracle Water” thanks to its ability to improve skin texture and tone.
Its key ingredient is the coveted Pitera. Derived from a natural fermentation process of a special yeast strain exclusive to SK-II, it contains amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are essential to skin health. Each bottle is filled with 90 percent Pitera—imagine all the goodness on your face!
Each bottle costs $289 (for 230ml) and we know Singaporeans are all about getting more bang for their buck, which is why we’re sharing with you three ways to use the Facial Treatment Essence to make the most of it.
1. As a daily essential
We found the best way to reap the benefits of Pitera Essence is to use it every morning and night right after cleansing. Splash some on the palm of your hand and tap it all over your face, just like how Chloë and James did it in the ASMR video. Don’t forget to also use it on the skin around our eyes—it’s that gentle. Thanks to the watery texture, the skin easily drinks up all the benefits.
2. As a hydrating treatment
When your skin needs a treat, soak a few cotton pads and let them sit on the cheeks, forehead and eyes for an instant refresh (for best results, chill your bottle of Facial Treatment Essence before!). You can expect to see a smoother skin texture, fewer dark spots, bouncy skin and a healthy glow just like Chloë’s in the ASMR video.
3. As an SOS treatment
If you’re sunburnt or your skin feels a bit inflamed, you can mist it on as and when needed multiple times a day to soothe and heal skin. We tried it, and it worked like a dream!
