If your skin's looking dull and in need of a reboot (we feel you, 2020 has not been a breeze), get ready to witness crystal clear skin—thanks to the best gift to end this year with

SK-II's bestselling PITERA™ Facial Treatment Essence isn't just renowned for its crystal clear skin transformations—this bottle of “Miracle Water” is also recognised for its limited-edition designs every festive season. From whimsical illustrations to Japanese art-inspired swirls, each one-of-a-kind design is a collectible in its own right, and now, SK-II is here to deliver the best gift for crystal clear skin once again.

This Christmas, SK-II celebrates PITERA™ by getting a bold makeover in the form of edgy street art inspired designs. Take your pick from three stunning options: a festive-ready variation that sports the word PITERA™ in striking graffiti; a bold, black-and-white design in paint strokes, and an eye-catching yellow colourway with an urban twist.

But that's not all! The new Limited Edition bottle comes bearing a special gift, with a new music video featuring SK-II's muses—actresses Haruka Ayase and Chloe Moretz, and singer-songwriter Leah Dou—uniting (virtually that is!) for the first time as they vibe along to a global remix of Mariah Carey's iconic pop classic “Fantasy” in three different languages. If this celebratory video doesn't make you want to break into song—or bob along for that matter—we don't know what will.

In case you forgot SK-II's PITERA™ Essence's has a cult status as a skin saviour across the globe, here's a gist of why this bottle of essence stands the test of time. Up to Ninety percent of the essence is made of PITERA™, SK-II exclusive bio-ingredient full of minerals, vitamins and amino acids derived from a natural fermentation process of a unique yeast strain. But what also makes PITERA™ so transformative is its ability to mimic the skin—so much so that it sinks into the skin quicker than water. If crystal clear skin is high up your wish list this year, it’s not too late to start your transformative journey with this miracle ingredient.

The new SK-II - PITERA™ Essence Street Art Limited Edition comes in three striking colourways

Another reason why the SK-II PITERA™ Essence Street Art Limited Edition will make the perfect gift for someone special (or even yourself) this season? The essence now comes beautifully presented with a Furoshiki wrapping cloth, a homage to the Japanese tradition of wrapping gifts and essentials. To top it all off, this year’s limited-edition bottle comes sold as part of a special festive set with some of the brand’s best-selling products including its Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser, Facial Treatment Clear Lotion and R.N.A Power Radical New Age Cream.

SK-II PITERA™ Essence Street Art Limited Edition set (230ml) retails at the recommended retail price of RM759 and includes the Facial Treatment Gentle Cleanser (20g), Facial Treatment Clear Lotion (30g) and R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream (15g). This set is available online and at all SK-II counters nationwide.
