SK-II Air Touch Foundation

The SK-II Air Touch Foundation might just be the most high-tech product on the market right now. It’s not a foundation you apply with a brush, not with a sponge, and definitely not with your fingers. The SK-II foundation comes in it’s own pump that uses an internal motor. The first time you purchase the foundation you’re paying for the whole system, but thereafter, you can merely purchase refills. The foundation is sprayed by the pump but in a way that’s a lot different from your traditional spray foundations. It’s not a burst of foundation that you get but a steady stream so that you can customize application.

So, apart from the motorized application, what’s so great about this foundation? Well, apparently once you switch on the compact (yes, you have to switch the compact on) it ionizes the foundation particles making sure that they’re only attracted to the moisture on your skin. What this means is that you don’t end up with foundation on your eyebrows or eyelashes the way that the regular spray foundations do.

Space-age technology aside, how does the foundation actually measure up to others on the market? Not bad, actually, aside from the fact that it’s offered in only limited shades. I thought that the foundation felt good once on but I had to let it “set”. Right away the foundation felt and looked a little wet, but you just have to let it dry and you’re left with a smooth even finish.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes spray foundations and to those who want a heavier coverage but don’t like how that can stick to fine facial hairs. The SK II Air Touch Foundation really does leave your skin looking flawless and holds up well throughout the day.

SK-II products are sold at Holt Renfrew stores across Canada.

    I came across this add about SK-ll skincare products being sold at Holt Renfrew. I have not been able to get this information from there website. Do you know which Holt Renfrew locations carry this line.

    Thank you

    I have the same problem-as i contacted Holt Renfrew on Bloor st., Yorkdale and Sherway Gardens- and was told that they no longer carry the line. Any ideas?

    HI Tania,

    I wasn’t aware that they weren’t carrying the line anymore, but if they’re not chances are that other stores will now. Try the Bay store at Yonge and Bloor – their beauty department is a little more high-end than other Bay stores.

    The last time I was in Vancouver the Holt Renfrew there carried the SK-II line. I know that if you phone HR in Vancouver they will ship it to your local HR store.

    Tracy, was that a long time ago? I hope it’s still there! But Vancouver does have a crazy big beauty section.

    It was around Christmas the last time I was there. I hope it’s still there! I like my SK-II masks very much!!
    I was just in LA for Spring Break, and the SAKs Fifth in South Coast Plaza has an SK-II counter and will ship it to wherever you are the rep said, so that’s another option.

    Dear Henna & Tracy,
    I am desperately looking for SK-11 (cleanser, treatment essence, eye treatment film, & signs eye cream) – I’m all out and this is my skin routine. I purchased the products in Australia and assumed (since they’re so good) that they would be available in a metropolitan city like Toronto, however no such luck @ Holt Renfrew & 2 other stores on Bloor St. I’ve found American companies, but they will only ship within the USA. If SK-II is not available in a Canadian store, do you know of an honest, reliable beauty company that will ship to Canada? HELP, Christina

    Hi Christina,

    I have no idea where you might be able to find it – try PIR cosmetics in Toronto… or you may just have to make a trip down south to get it. It’s too bad that Holt’s doesn’t carry ti any more!
