One step closer to fair & even skin tone that illuminates from within?
Enriched with De-Melano P3c that has 5X the brightening/whitening effect of kojic acid, plant extract Talape & concentrated Pitera, SK II brings us Cellumination.
Skin that glows and sparkles like diamond !
SK II deep surge is a heavy duty moisturiser that promise to offer superb hydration, plumping and brightening effect.
It has a rather dense texture although it looks like a cream gel. I had difficulty picking up the waxy-mucusy cream with my finger ( spatula is included in the packaging ). It is rather waxy upon application ( but not occlusive/greasy ) but dries down to a semi matt finish after 15 minutes.
This oilment ( as I would call it ) is an excellent moisturiser as it diminish fine dry lines like miracle !
I had not used it long enough to commend on it’s brightening effect on spots or dullness. It does plump up fine lines and leave a hydra-veil like finish on my skin, making it looking fresher & clearer.
The 1st three ingredients on the container are Pitera, Ascorbyl Glucoside ( a form of vitamin C, likely lipid soluble, thus the formulation of this waxy cream ) & water; so I have my faith in this cream to bring me an even, radiant & refined complexion.
Not to mention glycerin, niacinamide, lecithin & squalene to keep my skin well nourished!
PS : This moisturiser is known as Deep Surge in Japan and Illumination Cream in US; also the ingredient list varies slightly between the 2 versions!
