Some of the things I look forward to during the festive season are the limited-edition beauty goodies – and this Chinese New Year plus Valentine’s Day, SK-II is high on the list with its latest PITERA™ Essence bottle. While the beloved essence remains unchanged for 40 years since it was first discovered at a sake brewery, its bottle has gone through many makeovers – all of them collector-worthy, but this one has got to be my favourite of them all!

Taking inspiration from the joy of reuniting and celebrating with our loved ones, SK-II introduces the PITERA™ Essence XOXO New Year Limited Edition. What makes this bottle extra special to me is the message behind its playful yet thoughtful auspicious design. On top of a vibrant red coat, the bottle is decorated with ‘XOXO’ motifs in golden brushstrokes to welcome the Year of the Ox and, at the same time, cleverly symbolise virtual hugs and kisses from afar that’s apt with the current situation we’re in, don’t you think? Housing an essence that possesses transformative powers for crystal clear skin, it also makes the perfect gift for our loved ones this season.

As with most of SK-II’s limited-edition bottles every year that feature a Japanese art or a celebrated artist, this one is a collaboration with Swedish-French artist André Saraiva and his graffiti alter egos, Mr. & Mrs. A, who can be seen proclaiming their love for PITERA™. Try spotting them at SK-II counters, on Limited Edition Sets and even sharing hugs and kisses with SK-II brand ambassadors, Ayase Haruka and Ni Ni!

If you’re more of a stay-at-home-and-go-online-shopping kind of girl, fret not cos SK-II has launched its first-ever online flagship store in Southeast Asia in partnership with Lazada. That means you can now shop your PITERA™ favourites from the comforts of home and even receive personalised beauty advice with a virtual skincare consultation. What’s more, you can look forward to receiving your products in a LazMall exclusive gift box. Love!

The SK-II PITERA™ Essence XOXO New Year Limited Edition retails for RM759 and can be found at all at SK-II counters nationwide.
