I’m a big fan any anything having to do with Swarovski crystal so when I got word that the SK-II line was teaming up with them to create a limited-edition version of one of their products, I had to be in the know! SK-II and Swarovski Elements dressed up the Facial Treatment Essence with pictures of the Austrian crystal companies’ iconic Xilion cut stone on the box and bottle.
If you are a fan of what has been called facial miracle water, then you know the power of the super ingredient inside, Pitera. It’s a balance of all things really good for skin like key vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids and the Natural Moisturizing Factors, which occur naturally in the skin. These all combined allow the skin to function at its best.
The product? Great of course!! The whole concept? Not impressed but I'm a tough critic when it comes to Swarovski crystals and the use of them. I thought the bottle would be adorned with real crystals on like I’ve seen of products in the past (feature on that topic coming soon) but instead, it’s just pictures of the stone on the bottle and box, so I was quite disappointed, to say the least. I really feel they could have done a better job with this collaboration to appease us crystal junkies. Special edition for $195/7.2oz only @ sephora.com, nordstrom.com through February 2014.
