Glowing Skincare Addition...SK-II Cellumination Aurabright

Above: SK-II Cellumination Aurabright...for skin as luminous as the stunning packaging itself!
When in the testing phase for new skincare, I generally allow a minimum of four weeks before discussing my experience on Beauty Professor.  That being said, sometimes a product is so instantly remarkable that I cannot help but share my initial thoughts sooner, rather than later!  Such is the case for SK-II Cellumination Aurabright (available at Neiman MarcusNordstrom and Bloomingdale's)  My affinity for SK-II products (discussed HERE, HERE and HERE) has been apparent over the past few months; in fact, I cannot imagine my current skincare routine without these Pitera-infused gems.
Designed to bring clarity, brightness and radiance to the skin, SK-II Cellumination Aurabright also provides an instant glow upon application, due to the subtle iridescence of the formula.  

I have been applying this directly following a few drops of the SK-II Ultimate Revival Essence LXP (discussed HERE) and am taken aback by how smooth, silky, and slightly radiant my skin is.  Even more delightful, the slight glow lasts the entire day...all the while avoiding an undesirable detour into "oily" territory.  It yields an almost impossible-to-pinpoint quality that is ultra-flattering on the skin, with or without makeup.  If I am feeling this ardent after a week's usage, I cannot wait to revisit my feelings after a month of consistent wear!

Kindly scroll on for more details and images as well as the Bottom Line...

The best just got better with the NEW Cellumination AuraBright beauty essence.

A beauty essence for the woman who wants translucent skin that radiates from within. Stop relying on foundation to cover dullness and tone unevenness. Cellumination AuraBright has a completely new formulation unique brightening complex AuraBright Cocktail with Pitera™. Leaves skin glowing from within as if draped in a veil of light.

This light serum penetrates quickly into your skin's surface layers for a smooth velvety finish.

At A Glance:
This extraordinary brightening serum brightens and evens out your skin tone to give it an aura-like glow, as if skin is illuminated from within.
  • Using the dropper, apply a pearl-sized amount onto the palm.
  • Quickly smooth the essence gently over the entire face with fingertips until completely absorbed.
  • Next, concentrate a small amount of Cellumination Essence onto the dark spots that are visible. Use knuckles to gently massage the skin.
  • Follow with Cellumination Cream as directed.
  • For best results, apply morning and evening. It can also be used on the back of hands and on the décolletage.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this quick overview of the SK-II Cellumination Aurabright (available at Neiman MarcusNordstrom and Bloomingdale's).  I cannot stop touching my face because it feels so smooth and the subtle glow (even when wearing a more matte foundation like the Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting) is utterly enchanting.  It is such a lovely fusion of efficacy on and under the surface of the skin; consequently, I will continue to monitor results over the long term and weigh back in a few weeks' time! 

Have YOU tried the SK-II Cellumination Aurabright?  Thoughts?

Good things ahead, including new discoveries from Burberry and By Terry as well as my new foundations from Harrod's (initially discussed HERE).

Hope your week is going well...xx,

  1. This, sadly, broke me out badly so I had to stop using it :(
    It does look wonderfully luminous!

    1. So sorry to hear that! My skin is super sensitive and I haven't had an issue yet but certainly, everyone's skin is different!

      Hope your weekend is going well...xx,
