SK-II launches exclusively at Changi Airport

Japanese beauty brand SK-II will launch new Magnetic Booster, part of its Radical New Age Power (R.N.A) line, exclusively with The Shilla Duty Free at Changi Airport on 1 July.

The Magnetic Booster will be sold in sets with the R.N.A Power Cream (80g) in the R.N.A Power Magnetic Kit (S$200/US$145) or with the R.N.A Power Essence (50ml) in the R.N.A Power Essence Magnetic Kit (S$187/US$136). Magnetic Booster will be available at all Singapore SK-II counters from September.

Magnetic Booster features Magnetic Micropulse Technology which is claimed to deliver consistent yet gentle pulsations at 7,000 magnetic vibrations per minute with magnetism. According to SK-II, the product is three times better at improving penetration than finger application.

To support the launch, top Chinese celebrity make-up artist Wu Miao will host sessions on 7 July for beauty media, influencers and selected customers at the SK-II PITERA Lounge at The Shilla Duty Free. Miao, who contributes to Marie Claire, SELF and OnlyLady magazines, was named as one of the top ten beauty bloggers by Weibo. SK-II Associate Director Travel Retail Global Shweta Sharma, The Shilla Duty Free Head of Global Merchandise Division Raelene Johnson and Changi Airport Group Senior Vice President Airside Concession Division Teo Chew Hoon will also attend the event.

The SK-II PITERA Lounge, which launched in October 2015, is the brand’s first and only lounge facility in an airport and offers facial and massage services. Miao will share his tips for using the Magnetic Booster along with the R.N.A Power Cream and will provide insight on his inflight and travel skincare regimen by curating his own inflight beauty essentials. Guests will then be invited to experience the new Magnetic Booster and curate their own inflight beauty essentials followed by a shopping tour at The Shilla Duty Free.

SK-II Associate Director Travel Retail Global Shweta Sharma said: “We are again honoured to be celebrating our ninth year of solid partnership with Changi Airport Group, and our fourth with The Shilla Duty Free with the first-in-the-world launch. We are excited to delight travellers with this exclusive access to our latest skincare innovation and for them to experience the power of the award-winning SK-II R.N.A Power anti-ageing range.”
