    Up for Sale is the new SK II Stempower moisturizer (50g).

    Intended to replace the SK II Skin Signature Moisturizer, the SK II Stempower will only be available in Singapore come mid-August but has been available at Changi DFS since 1st June. RRP, once launched, will be S$149 for the 50g bottle and S$219 for the 80g bottle.

    (See below for further details about the new SK II Stempower range)

    Selling Price: S$100.

    I do, however, have to admit that as curiosity got the better of me, I opened the product slightly and (of course using the spatula provided) placed a little bit of the cream on the back of my hand. Like all SK II products, the Stempower Moisturizer is very rich and its texture very smooth. A true successor to the Skin Signature range!

    You can find pictures of the (actual) product on my flickr website: Flickr: theobatha's Photostream.

    Also up for Sale is a brand new The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Rice Bran (120g) cleanser (still in its wrapping) for S$13 (RRP S$19.90 I think) and a slightly used Guerlain Meterorites Perles (Teint Beige) S$50 (RRP$76 I think?) Pictures of both items are also available on the flickr website.

    FYI - I bought the Guerlain Meteorites Perles (Teint Beige) last week from Tangs and have since used it twice. I found that the Meteorite Perles gave my skin a wonderful glow and brightened my face up immensely. However, due to personal preferences, I have chosen to return to my Bare Minerals Mineral Veil powder.

    SK-II Stempower: 10 years of radical firmness in 10 days
    SK-II’s research on epidermal root cells revealed that with age, the activity of epidermal root cells declines. This causes a loss of skin’s ‘radical firmness’, one of the root causes for the appearance of multiple signs of skin ageing: wrinkles; sagging; loss of radiance, skin elasticity and hydration; compromised texture; larger pores; and a sallow complexion.

    SK-II’s worldwide search for ingredients that work on epidermal root cells has led to the discovery of a plant-derived ingredient – Stem-Acanax – taken from the root of Siberian Ginseng, which is harvested from an organic farm in the heart of Korea’s Jeju Island.

    SK-II has combined its signature ingredient Pitera and Stem-Acanax to create the SK-II Stem-Acanex Complex, which has proven efficacious in stimulating epidermal root cells to restore the skin’s radical firmness.

    SK-II has also developed a new measure – the ‘Ageless Vector’ – to measure the angle of sagging or lack of firmness: the larger the Ageless Vector angle (closer to 90 degrees), the lower the radical firmness of skin. SK-II’s longitudinal skin study – the landmark Akita Study – has found that each degree of change indicates approximately one year’s loss in visible firmness.

    Using the Ageless Vector, SK-II Stempower has been shown to restore 10 years of radical firmness in 10 days, SK-II said. Its high active penetration formula targets the source of skin’s beauty to improve the 10 signs of ageing (loss of firmness, dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, sallow complexion, lack of resilience, visible pores, sagging, lack of radiance, roughness, and loss of tightened facial contours) in 10 days. The brand claims that the first sign of SK-II Stempower restoring skin’s radical firmness is its immediate pore reduction."
