Those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Get your Christmas shopping sorted with the help of these beautiful festive editions of SK-II’s favourite products.
30% of employed adults single out
co-workers or bosses as the
worst gift-givers, according to
a survey by Consumer Reports.
Christmas is one of our favourite times of the year. Feasting with friends and family, what’s there not to love? Well, for one, the sheer amount of gift shopping. And we’re not alone. According to a survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center, Americans hate gift shopping just as much, with 68 percent dreading the crowds, and 28 percent stressing out over buying suitable presents.
The only way to avoid this end-of-year madness is to start now so there’s enough time to plan for amazing presents for your loved ones. To make things even easier for you this year, consider the coffret sets from SK-II. Each one caters to a specific skin concern, but the star of each set is the gorgeous limited edition Facial Treatment Essence that’s inspired by a traditional Japanese art form – Suminagashi.
+RED FOR COURAGE The ultimate symbol of transformation, the peacock feather in red represents the passion and boldness you should have in the New Year.
+GREEN FOR AWAKENING Green signiﬁes life, energy and renewal. This is for the woman who needs a gentle reminder that life is there for the taking.
+BLUE FOR PURITY Blue represents the innocence of a young woman, inspiring her to take the ﬁrst step in steering her destiny.
Suminagashi: the Japanese
art of paper marbling
Say it: SOO-meenah-GAH-shi. “Sumi” means ink, and “nagashi” means “to float”. This 800-yearold Japanese art form is delicate and therapeutic, and every piece created through the process captures a moment in time and is unique and precious. The real beauty of Suminagashi is that there’s no one way of making a work.
The limited edition designs for SK-II Facial Treatment Essence celebrate the philosophy behind Suminagashi – that there are no right and wrong decisions in life. Our lives are blank pieces of paperand we should “paint” our own paths. At the same time, we should enjoy the journey and appreciate it for what it is: unique and beautiful.
