Beauty Review: SK-II RNA Power Essence and Cream - Part 2

If you missed the first post, click here to see my first impressions of the two new products in SK-II's anti-aging line, the Radical New Age (RNA) Power Essence and Power cream. Now on to the results!

For the past week or so, I've supplemented my usual skincare regime with the RNA Power Radical New Age Essence and RNA Power Radical New Age cream, courtesy of omy Blog Club Sg and SK-II

On the first morning after trying the products, I did feel (although I can't quantify this) that my skin had a glow which I was quite chuffed about. My skin felt well hydrated, despite sleeping in air-conditioning all night, and I couldn't see any negative skin reaction or signs of allergy.

SK-II advertises that its RNA products have harnessed technology to target the "multi-controller of firmness, to achieve lengthwise firmness x crosswise firmness by rejuvenating skin cells and promoting structural protein synthesis in every cell, all layers of the skin". I'm not sure whether that exactly happened, but it felt good!

However, since the initial spark of affirmation, I've found it difficult to perceive any further marked difference. On the plus side, it means my skin has taken quite well to the formula and I have not had any breakouts (which I can be prone to). I also think that, as the skin on my face is already quite firm and smooth with faint to no lines/wrinkles, perhaps there was not much there for a dramatic change. On the other hand, I couldn't see any improvement in pigmentation, so I suspect I would need a separate product for this.

Overall, I felt the RNA essence and cream work very well together. I'd be curious to see if I could get equal satisfaction using just one of the two (as visually and texturally they are similar). 

Lesson: It's never too early to start caring for your skin; all that matters is ensuring that the products you use are actually good for you (so do your research) and that they suit your skin type and address your skin concerns.

  1. Let us focus on what God has created women to be and what society tells them to be. Does the truth lie in women being successful career women to the exclusion of their own feminine nature; in being dependent on the admiration of others for their self-worth, or in their being mere physical objects of pleasure?

  2. Does outrageous dryness trouble you a ton? Why not cure it for the last time? On the off chance that you utilize a successful and powerful skin care cream, dry skin will be thing entirely of the past.

  3. I have not tried this line from SK-II but I have tried a few of their products from b-glowing in the past so I may just try this one.
