Skin Tone: Light to Medium with warm undertones
Skin Type: Combination
I recently purchased an emulsion and a serum from the peach sake range by Skin food. Today, I will be reviewing the Skin Food Peach Sake Emulsion. So, let’s see how this product fared for me.
$15.00 USD for 4.56 fl oz.
Peaches contain significant vitamins, minerals, and other factors, which promote healthy skin. Peaches are rich in vitamin A and vitamin C, which are antioxidants that help reduce free radical damage and possess anti-aging benefits. Naturally occurring acid in the skin helps prevent acne and repair acne scars. The organic acid found in peaches can boost skin acid’s rejuvenating effects. Finally, pectin, a type of fiber, is found in the skin of peaches and helps to tone and firm skin. Sake, a wine made from rice, clears skin by facilitating blood circulation, while the alcohol also tightens pores and controls sebum production. Geishas, traditional artisans and performers in Japan, would add sake to bath water for softer, brighter skin. Following their fashion, sake spas offer luxurious sake baths and treatments. The fermentation process produces kojic acid, which has brightening effects on skin. The yeast used in the process also contains peptides, which are chains of amino acids that play a role in effective collagen production. SKINFOOD’s Peach Sake Emulsion is a light and refreshing emulsion with peach and Japanese sake extracts. It tightens pores, reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, and controls oily skin with excessive sebum.
My Experience with Skin Food Peach Sake Emulsion:
Skin Food Peach Sake Emulsion comes in a matte frosty glass bottle with a wooden twist lid. The clear bottle allows me to know how much product I have left. Unfortunately, the bottle comes with a stopper rather than a pump, which you need to take off in order to get the product out. When I try to get the product out, it dispenses more product than required. The stopper is made out of plastic and so breaks easily when you try to pull it out. Even though the packaging looks nice and elegant from outside, I wish they had provided a pump.
So, let me start with explaining what an emulsion is… an emulsion is like a moisturizer but slightly more liquid-y. An emulsion is mainly targeted for beauties with oily skin. Emulsion provides the effect of a creamy moisturizer without making your skin oily. Emulsion gets easily absorbed into the skin and a tiniest bit goes a long way. So, I usually apply my emulsion after my serum sets in i.e., Cleanse-> Tone-> Serum-> Emulsion.
Skin Food Peach sake emulsion has a light fresh peachy scent. The emulsion is watery and white in colour. The emulsion gets absorbed easily and doesn’t leave a heavy residue. This emulsion makes my skin feel plump and hydrated. The oiliness I had is more balanced. However, I haven’t seen any significant difference in the size of my pores. I felt this emulsion didn’t make any difference to my pores which is the main purpose of this product.
Overall, SkinFood Peach Sake Emulsion is a really good lightweight moisturiser. Don’t buy it if you are looking for a pore-minimising product.
