Treatments (Face) -SKINFOOD -Royal Honey Propolis Essence

foto

Never been too impressed with the Skinfood brand, other than the Wash-off Black Sugar mask I just don't like their formulas at all - far too much fragrance and often alcohol in equal doses too. Until now! Got a small sachet of this as a GWP and put it to the test. Firstly the most surprising thing - despite how much honey and honey-derived ingredients are in here, it is not thick. I half-expected it to be a sticky essence but it's super runny and light. Next it has zero fragrance! I imagined this smelling like honey, the way all honey-containing products tend to...but not this. It just doesn't smell of anything period! I applied after cleansing and toning, gently massaging a few drops in.
Like Vitamin C serums I noticed a short-lived 'glow' when applying this and it does leave a very slightly sticky feeling behind, the way glycerine does but not as strongly. For oily skins this is moisturizing enough to use on its own. All the times I've used it I haven't needed to follow with the Royal Honey Cream, the moisture from this was sufficient enough for my skins needs. My makeup also went on fine after it, no balling up or any other issues. Granted a few applications can't give a full picture of long term benefits but I have a decent intro to the potential of this essence from just the one small sachet. It agrees with me and it's a very simple formulation, consisting of just a small handful of ingredients - all of which are either good ones or great ones (i.e the first three are: 63% black bee propolis extract, 10% royal jelly extract and 10% black honey extract).
Probably one of the priciest Skinfood products there is at $39 but I'm absolutely definitely considering picking this up in full size.

Scrubs -SKINFOOD -Wash-Off Black Sugar Mask

foto

This is one of the very few Skinfood products that I actually like (and believe me when I say I've tried most of them!). Price point is fantastic, I rarely have to pay anywhere near the kind of dollars I regularly fork out on French or U.S brands' products. Also, Skinfood tend to do lots of sample sizes - all readily available online, meaning you can affordably try out their products without breaking the bank. And for me, the best part of trying out these sample sizes is to discover that this one right here is a keeper! 

Yes I was expecting it to be harsh like a granular scrub but the sugar particles are very fine. I used this every other day on a morning, sometimes just using as a scrub and other times (depending upon my schedule) left on for 10 minutes, even 30 minutes once as I actually forgot I had it on. But no biggie it's pretty natural and had no detrimental effects regardless of the amount of time it was left on. What I did see though was a smoother and more glowing complexion. Especially on a couple of flaky patches that have recently appeared on my forehead it seems to have really helped reduce that and clear my skin. 

The only thing preventing me from giving it a 5 lippie rating is that it is quite a basic formulation which I feel could have done with some more botanicals, particularly brightening ones for an even better effect, not that it isn't good already, but just to give it that extra oomph. But then I guess that would have made for a more pricey product for us the end consumers. Perhaps best left as it is in that case! Repurchase for sure.

Treatments (Face) -SKINFOOD -Peach Sake Pore Serum

foto

I use this only on my t-zone - which especially in summer can quickly turn into an oil slick. I'm still slightly on the fence about this product: whilst I agree with some of the other reviewers that it doesn't seem to be doing anything to enlarged pores in the long run, it does at least temporarily help them appear just a fraction smaller and more refined, although how much of that is due to the drying effect of the alcohol content in here I'm not sure! The oiliness too is kept at bay, but only for an extra hour if I'm lucky.

Liking the pump container which makes it super easy to dispense whilst keeping oxygen away from the serum, also the texture which is not sticky at all. Also love the not-too-in-your-face peach fragrance that (sadly) dissipates after a few minutes, even though I know it's not the best of things for your skin. However could definitely do without the added alcohol which over time isn't a good idea for any skin type. A good product for temporary results and occasional use - sure, but I personally wouldn't want to be using this every day.

Primer/ Corrector -SKINFOOD -Fresh Apple Pore Mazing Primer Gel

I enjoyed this as an everyday primer. I'm finishing off the tube now. It wasn't amazing, but it got the job done and didn't give me any skin problems. It made my skin feel really soft and silky. I used a thin layer under my foundation and it did a pretty decent job at filling my pores. I'd buy this again.


Scrubs -SKINFOOD -Rice Mask

foto

The good: it costs very little. The bad: It does very little, other than exfoliates. I didn't notice any brightening effect whatsoever with this. I usually prefer cream or gel masks as opposed to sheet masks as I can walk around and get on with other things, but this has a tendency to start flaking off after some minutes, rendering moving around a bit impossible The exfoliating grains in here are also very rough and large which I found to be quite abrasive. It was also highly fragranced which was another negative for me as my skin does not take too well to fragranced skincare - especially at these levels.

All in all I would not repurchase or recommend as it didn't have any visible effects greater than what I could achieve with a tube of St Ives which is actually much more effective than this at exfoliating.
