I have and am a devoted fan!
Currently using

1. Facial treatment essence , this is like a add-on after my toner and the star product of their range
2. Facial treatment mask - this really peps my skin up every week
2. Advanced signs treatment - use it like a moisteriser.

It gave me a bit of a outbreak initally but now, I think my skin has improved vastly after using SKII.

It markets itself as a Japanese-brand skincare, but it's really owned by American company Maxfactor.

It promises users crystal-clear skin within 28 days due to the presence of Pitera, a yeast derivative which accelerates the skin renewal cycle.

It is very popular in Asia and I think the brand was recently imported into the US (available at Saks I think ) and Australia.
Cate Blanchett is the latest celebrity spokeswoman for the brand, before her, there were several Asian celebrities.

Here's a short post on this brand in my blog (yes I am that obessed with this brand )

1. Facial Treatment Essence - This is really the star of the entire SKII range and the most enduring of the entire product line.

You can try SaksFifthAvenue or check the SKII website for stockists in CA.
On the other hand, this HK-based website: http://www.strawberrynet.com does sell SKII online.
But I'll strongly advise you to sample it first, cos I did have a minor breakout when I started using the treatment essence initially...

I use the Facial Treatment Essence and the Facial Lift Emulsion (Moisturizing Lotion). I order from strawberrynet. I also would see if you could sample from somwhere like Saks.

I just started using it, and I have had a minor... kind of major break out... ??
I guess I will just stick with it a bit longer... I'm using the Facial Treatment Essence. I was using the gel cleanser, then I noticed that it had mineral oil in it... So I have stoped. (Mineral Oil blocks pores...)

I'm a big fan of the essence. I found out about them when I was living in Australia, and I've been using for about 8 months now. Improves skin clarity. I just had a major breakout in the skin, actually, a skin problem, but was not related to the product. It's expensive but I'd recomend.

it's very big here in singapore, not to mention expensive too. apparently the things it does to skin is comparable to what la mer can do.

it's also available at sasa.com, i used to order my sk-II skin care products from there before saks imported them. i still order the make-up powder and foundation from sasa.com/strawberrynet though. i like their rebooster, which is a quick mask, and the facial treatment repair c. although it's pricey, but one bottle of product lasts a long time.
