South Korea’s #1 duty-free retailer recently launched an SK-II counter over at their chain store in Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport!
amidst the sea of Korean beauties rests a not-so-secret key to their crystal-clear skin. with their hectic schedules traveling across the globe, both korean men and women heavily rely on sk-ii’s products, particularly the prized facial treatment essence, to keep their skin hydrated and nourished all day.
Backed by decades of clinical research, P&G’s treasured skincare brand SK-II is reputed for its premium products that delivers results. Often described as one of the most expensive beauty brands in the world since it’s founded 33 years ago, SK-II products are, to me, collectively a bang for your buck, as they’ve been educating old and new customers alike on how to achieve maximum skin clarity through the free professional skin consultations provided at their counters, which are all based on individual concerns.

The same goes to this new SK-II outlet: Informed and helpful consultants are also standing by this new counter perched at Soekarno-Hatta’s international terminal.
Exclusive to this counter, SK-II have also packaged their signature products into 11 different travel kits to make themselves more accessible for those traveling celebrities coming in and out of Jakarta. You can’t get these kits anywhere else, not even other Lotte Duty Free chains across Indonesia.

If you happen to have the same thought as I did, don’t worry about TSA. Each SK-II travel kit you got from this store (without tax!) is signed with a premium seal that automatically admits you through security check without leaving behind your Facial Treatment Essence bottle, whether it’s the 150ml or the 300ml one (TSA limits carry-on liquids, gels, and aerosols to a volume of 100ml).
As a frequent flyer, local SK-II ambassador Susan Bachtiar finds the introduction of these travel kits extremely helpful, recalling those times she left her skincare signatures at home before flights. The products she carry depend largely on her destination: Susan relies on the Whitening Spots Serum Duo whenever she’s stepping onto tropical, UV rays-drenched places, whereas previously, during our media trip to Kobe, Japan, she shared to me that she used the Signs Eye Masks on top of double layers of the Signature Eye Cream to get that extra moisture, as her skin is naturally dry and the city’s teeth-grinding cold weather wasn’t really helping her looking her best.
As for me, ever since I’ve got that exclusive set of SK-II signatures from P&G over 2 weeks ago, I’ve seen a noticeable difference in my oily skin, even though I’ve only been using the Facial Treatment Essence out of the four products I was given with.
My daily regimen over the past 2 weeks now includes twice-a-day doses of Facial Treatment Essence – morning and night. I still produce the occasional blemishes, no doubt as I’m restless 24/7 catching up deadlines, lots of running, and keeping up with this blog. However, my T-zone shines and dry cheeks are looking balanced these days.
By the end of the day, I usually have super shiny forehead, nose, and chin, along with dry cheeks and apparent all-around open pores. Compared to 16 days ago, I now see a more balanced overall shine that leans more toward dewy rather than the usual oil-tanked face. Cheeks are no longer as dry, and forehead is no longer as shiny. Obviously my pores are still large and open, as the cold truth remains that pore size is determined by your genetics. Nevertheless, I’m giving Miracle Water a chance to perform its magic in due time – until whenever it is my pores appear smaller, whenever it is my skin tone is perfectly even, and whenever zits vow to never appear anywhere on my body ever again. (Will that day ever come?)
What about you? Have you tried any SK-II products?
