♡ Skin Food Peach Sake BB Cream & Pore Pact ♡

みなさん、こんにちは! 


I'm really enjoying rolling out these reviews on some of my favourite cosmetic brands... hopefully soon enough I'll be able to review not so well known named brands I have stumbled across recently! Either way; today I'm writing about Skin Food's Peach Sake BB Cream in 'Light Beige' as well as the Peach Sake Pore Pact (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)


I adore anything by Skin Food and until recently... I've always used either their Afternoon Tea BB cream or the Red Bean SPF BB cream so when I had the opportunity to try something else I jumped at the chance. I've also used the toner and emulsion from the Peach Sake collection and they've done wonders to my skin and helped clear up most of the rash-type acne I get under my chin when I get stressed.

Peach Sake BB Cream in Light Beige

"A pore refining BB cream that regulates sebum and creates a flawless and matte complexion without feeling greasy" 

Despite the small packaging... this stuff goes a really long way and only using a pea-sized amount covers my entire face as well as my neck area. Some problems I've had in the past with /other/ branded BB creams is that it has left an oily residue on my t-zone area as well as making my dry cheek areas more problematic etc. But this peach sake bb cream is a great as it doesn't dry out my skin and covers all my scarring and fresh acne without using excess! I have to admit though that for the price I was a little disappointed with how much was given when there are other creams with bigger quantities in the same price region...

Pros
↑↑ a little goes a long way
↑↑ hydrating instead of drying out skin in problematic areas
↑↑ doesn't clog up pores either

Cons
↑↑ little bit on the expensive side for something of its size
↑↑ the pump takes a while to dispense the cream out when first using

Overall Verdict: ★★★★☆
I like this product... I really do but I won't go rushing to use it every day as I'm worried it'll run out extremely quickly but I like the even coverage it gives and how it doesn't break me out from clogged pores like some BB creams do.

Skin Food Peach Pore Pact

"This pore pact is made with traditional Japanese rice materials combined with peach extract that controls excess sebum leaving a smooth and lustrous appearance"

I like this pore pact... no that's a lie I actually love this pore pact. Again, like with the BB cream, a little goes a long way and a little covers my entire face without making it out that I've packed the stuff on and on to create an oompa loompa effect (like people in my area who seem to adorn the oompa loompa look every where I turn ugh) I adore how light this powder is and how it seems to fill in ever crease and crevice on my skin to create said smooth look... I love it!

Pros
↑↑ lightweight
↑↑ little goes a long way again
↑↑ doesn't leave a massive dent in your pockets with the pricing
↑↑ loving the cute little peach design embedded into the powder

Cons
↑↑ errr I don't feel there are any cons about this product as of yet!

Overall Verdict: ★★★★★
It's rare for me to find a powder that fits my skin type so well... I'm definitely going to stick to the pressed powder until the foreseen future as I cannot find anything wrong with it in my honest opinion!

Thanks for reading!

  2. The bb cream is one of my favorite bb creams ever! It keeps my face matte and not heavy at all :D I've never tried the pact though. I guess using both together will give more matte and long lasting finish :D this post makes me wanna use it again haha. Thank you for the lovely review ^^
