Could SK-II RNA Power Airy Milky Lotion be the formula you’ve been looking for when it comes to rolling back the years? Tracy Tristram puts her weary skin to the test…
While I wish I had started the battle against pores and lines in my 20s, I’ve realised that it’s never too late (or too early) to get your anti-ageing game on. I have three kids, I work full-time and I am rapidly hurtling towards my mid-40s (eek!)… It’s fair to say that I am not looking as youthful as I once did. I am perpetually tired, and it definitely shows on my face. But with the recent discovery of a new, lighter SK-II R.N.A Power Radical New Age formulation – the miracle that is SK-II R.N.A Airy Milky Lotion – I may well have found the answer to my anti-ageing prayers.
My skincare regime just took a massive upturn with this luxe addition to my beauty kit, but has it helped reverse the toll kids, sun, exhaustion and time have taken on my face?
Putting SK-II RNA Airy Milky Lotion through its paces…
I’m always on the lookout for a good-quality skincare product, especially one that can help combat my lacklustre complexion (thanks, kids!). Having previously used SK-II RNA Power Eye Cream on my dark eye circles with great results, I was more than happy to give SK-II RNA Airy Milky Lotion a whirl the moment SK-II gave it to me to try (grand!). That pretty red pot of goodness had big expectations to live up to, so I was excited to whip off the lid of my journey into the world of SK-II RNA Power, in a lighter format.
Radical New Age Power (RNA): What’s it all about?
What’s the signature ingredient in R.N.A Power Radical New Age? Pitera! SK-II’s signature ingredient was born in a sake brewery in Japan, where it was noticed that an old master brewer had youthful-looking hands, a stark contrast to his wrinkled face. Pitera is derived from a special yeast strain exclusive to SK-II, and is packed with amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are essential to skin health.
Hallelujah! Evolving from stempower technology and the very latest innovation in anti-ageing boosters, this generation of skincare from SK-II is the way to rejuvenate skin cells and promote structural protein synthesis in every single previously-flagging cell. And the extra good news? SK-II R.N.A Power goodies are full of it, including my new skincare best friend, SK-II R.N.A Power Airy Milky Lotion.
Is this power-packed elixir the most wallet-friendly skincare product on the market? Nope. Is it worth it? For me, so far, it would be a resounding YES. Every. Single. Cent.
How to use SK-II R.N.A. Power Airy Milky Lotion for the best results
Whilst it may be tempting to scoop out the whole pot and slap it on one’s face in a moment of excitement, the best way to use this SK-II anti-ageing skincare product is on a daily basis, twice a day. Take a pearl-sized amount and use (clean!) fingertips to dot on your forehead, cheeks and chin (or chins, in my case) and then spread the creamy good stuff from the centre outwards, across your whole face.
Week one: Things are starting to look good already…
Honestly? I started seeing a marked improvement in my pore size and lined skin areas five days in. That Radical New Age Power, it turns out, is pretty radical! I decided to combine SK-II R.N.A. Power Airy Milky Lotion along with my dark circle nemesis, R.N.A. Power Eye Cream. The results? A big air punch a few days in when studying my smaller pores (I’ve been paranoid about them for quite some time). I did get a few pimples popping up towards the end of the first week, but the spots have now gone, and my skin is continuing to head towards anti-aging excellence. Also, people have stopped telling me how tired I look…
Week two: Who is this young thang I see in the mirror?
Having been pretty impressed with week one’s results, week two saw another marked change in skin quality and appearance. Pores continued to shrink as if by magic, and fine facial lines carried on retreating.
Week three: The ultimate proof of time reversal…
Straight up, true story: I got ID’d buying a bottle of wine. This may have been one of my most wonderful post-40 moments yet. I am not suggesting that I suddenly look 25 again, but I KNOW that I look (and feel) better thanks to the wonders of the SK-II R.N.A. Power Radical New Age series. I am my own biggest critic, but right now I really do think I am looking better than I have done in a while (like, a decade).
And the verdict?
I started my SK-II journey feeling hopeful that I would see some improvement in my rather worn-out face, but the results have not only left my pores way smaller, my skin less lacklustre and my wrinkles heading into reverse mode, but the outcome has hugely boosted my confidence. In just three weeks! This may well be the best anti-ageing skincare that has ever graced my vast lotion and potion cabinet. Will I be continuing with both the SK-II R.N.A. Airy Milky Lotion and the SK-II RNA Power Eye Cream? You couldn’t pry those magic red pots from me if you tried…
