SK-II, the skincare brand whose ambassador happens to be perfect skin–haver Cate Blanchett, is coming to NYC in the form of a temporary pop-up shop. A Racked tipster walked by the space, located at 470 Broome Street, and noticed that it'll be open starting tomorrow and running through Halloween.
Each day from 10am to 7pm, stop in for skin care consultations, diagnostics, "refresh stations," product samples, and new products, as well as special events throughout the month. While this weekend marks the grand opening celebration, on October 6th from 6pm to 8pm, there'll be a "Flawless Fall Skincare" event with InStyle and the Brooklyn Blonde, plus on October 8th from 5pm to 7pm, a meet-and-greet with The City alum Whitney Port.
If it's like previous pop-up shops in NYC and San Francisco, you may even be able to take a spin under the Beauty Imaging System, which analyzes your skin's texture, firmness, radiance, tone, and wrinkle resilience in order to find the best products for your skin.
