Both designs feature the Maison’s iconic meditative fox sitting against a backdrop of flowers and stars respectively.

The limited-edition essence is priced at RM850 and comes with a complimentary three-piece gift set. In addition, with the purchase of any one of SK-II’s hero products (this includes the SKinpower Advanced Cream, Pitera Essence, and GenOptics Ultraura Essence), you can also score a limited-edition pouch.
