SK-II (I never know how to pronounce it - is it 'ski' or S.K. 2?) Anyway, it is a really expensive range from Japan. Cate Blanchette is the 'face' of SK-II. She looks pretty good and says it is her skincare ritual. When I was younger and more prone to spend an absolute fortune on skincare, I tried a few of their products and they were all really lovely to use. The scent was subtle and natural, my skin did not break out, and I felt good using them. But they are REALLY expensive. The range is from about £35 to £190, and you need to use a few products to get full benefit. After about six months of sitting in with really nice skin, I decided that it was ridiculous, and I had to get a life instead. The face masks are the one thing I still buy from the range. www.uk.strawberrynet.com give me the best price at £76 for 10 masks or £55 for 6. I get 10% off that as I shop with them a lot, so find them to be the cheapest online. As for the shops, it is so exclusive that I think only Harrods stocks it. The mask is in a sealed foil which you should carefully open across the top. Slide the mask out and you will see that it is covered in gooey stuff which is the pitera they rave about which nourishes your skin. The mask is folded, on opening you will find that it will cover your whole face and has holes for the eyes and mouth and a slit for the nose. Without handling it too much, put it over your face and press gently to ensure good contact. Leave on 20 minutes. This mask is for single use - but of you are carefull you can get up to 3 uses out of it. Carefully fold it back into the foil and seal in a plastic food bag so it doesn't dry out. It really does leave your skin more bouncy, fresh, and hydrated and will look that way the next day too. A lovely product that does work.
