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 Pore Serum. So, let’s see how this product fared for me.
$16.00 USD for 45 ml.
Skinfood’s Peach Sake Pore Serum is a soft essence containing rice sake, peach extracts rich in vitamins A and C, and silica powder, which create a matte effect and minimize the appearance of pores. 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 fibre, 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.
My Experience with Skin Food Peach Sake Pore Serum:
Skin Food Peach Sake Pore Serum 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. The bottle comes with a pump. The pump dispenses the right amount of product. Overall, I love the packaging of this serum. It looks elegant and sturdy.
Skin Food Peach Sake Pore Serum has a light, fresh peachy scent. The serum is creamy and white in colour. The serum has a silicone feel to it. It feels more like a primer. It dries down quickly and forms a thin matte layer on top of the skin. I don’t rub this serum since it flakes off. I just pat it on my skin.
This serum forms a nice base for my makeup. I noticed that it did fill my pores upon application; however, it doesn’t minimise my pores. Once I removed the serum, my pores were back. The serum did help to reduce oiliness on my T zone. However, this effect lasted for around 3 hours. After the three-hour mark, I had to blot my skin. Overall, I really like this serum.
Pros of Skin Food Peach Sake Pore Serum:
- This peach sake pore serum blurred my pores due to it silicone texture.
- It reduces oiliness in my T zone.
- Gives a nice base to my makeup.
- Can be used as a serum or a primer.
- Suitable serum for oily skin.
- Soothing peach fragrance.
- Beautiful packaging.
Cons of Skin Food Peach Sake Pore Serum:
- Not suitable for beauties with dry skin.
- Didn’t minimize pores as advertised.
Do I Recommend Skin Food Peach Sake Pore Serum?
