Let’s start!



Skinfood For Water-based cleansers

The best way to start your morning is to brighten your skin. I have to say, Skinfood’s water-based cleansers are the way to go. 

Skinfood Rice Daily Brightening Scrub Foam 150 ml is a micro-fine facial scrub foam made with rice bran water from the pristine Cheorwon region that cleanses and exfoliates.

It has a fantastic effect on the skin, especially if you’re struggling with sensitive or acne-prone skin. 

You’ll find it so easy to use and cleans your face without stripping it. 

All you need is a couple of pumps and enjoy the heavenly, soft foam on your face. You’ll notice it gently takes care of all impurities and leaves your skin soft and tight.

Pros

  • Clinically-proven formula,
  • Hypoallergenic,
  • pH-balanced formula,
  • Suitable for all ages,
  • Non-comedogenic,
  • Paraben-free,
  • Fragrance-free.

Cons 

We couldn't find any.

Skinfood Egg White Perfect Pore Meringue Foam 200 ml is an absolute must if you are dealing with enlarged pores and sebum.

This product does exactly what it's advertised to do: it easily washes away dirt, oil, sunscreen, and excess makeup, while unclogging your pores and minimizing their appearance. 

When you use this foam cleanser, you’ll notice your pores are a LOT less noticeable, and your skin will become a lot softer as well. 

Things to consider: This product was designed for oily and combination skin types, but can be also used for dry and normal skin.

Skinfood For Eye Care

Skinfood Royal Honey Eye Cream 30 ml is a luxurious eye cream featuring rich, aged honey that firms the delicate eye area.

So why is it a big deal? Aren’t there tons of other skincare brands using honey? 

Well, yes. 

But here is why it’s different: Since 1956, Master Lim Hyeongmun (the guy behind the honey that supplies this cream) has been following the laws of nature in making aged honey. 

He ferments the honey once a year in the beehive for 60 days, unlike ordinary honey, which is produced by feeding sugar water and using artificial heat when the beehive is 80% filled.

Aged honey fermented is highly concentrated and nourishing compared to ordinary honey because of its lower moisture content and high content of vitamins and minerals.

I love the packaging - it's cute and easy to dispense, so you don't get more than you need. It has a very light fresh scent, which I barely notice since I feel it dissipates quickly. It feels very fresh and pleasant when you put it on.

Skinfood Essence

You’ll be impressed by Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Essence 50 ml formula, many high-quality active ingredients for the skin.

 It’s particularly rich in ingredients from the hive: 63% propolis extract, 10% royal jelly, 10% fermented black honey extract.

 Best for acne and blemishes.

 Pros

  • Holistic repair and moisturizing, perfect for damaged skins (after you went to the sun or during the winter, for example).
  • Not greasy and perfect texture.
  • The dropper also makes it easier to avoid contamination
  • I love the packaging so much.
  • It will take a long time to finish: If used once daily, it will last up to 7 months.

 Cons

Honestly, it’s perfect, but if something that bothered me, is the packing made of glass, which makes it less portable.

Skinfood For Exfoliation

Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off 100 g is a wash-off mask featuring organic black sugar granules as its star ingredient that safely and effectively exfoliate and nourish skin for a smooth, clean complexion.

It uses black sugar to effectively remove dead skin cells from the skin, which helps to brighten and smooth skin texture. 

This mask is enhanced with shea butter, which adds complementary hydration.

My favorite part about all of this, you can use it as a body scrub for your heels, elbows, literally from head to toe.

  • Leaves the skin supple and clean without a dry feeling.
  • Does not irritate the skin.
  • Provides proper hydration during the exfoliation process.

Skinfood For Lip Care

Skinfood Avocado & Honey Lip Serum 10 ml is appealed to me as a morning lip balm because it has a little sun protection at SPF8 and has a tube packaging. 

The avocado and honey extracts are supposed to help keep the lips moist.

Suitable for all skin types.

Pros

  • Greatly enriched with avocado oil, shea butter, honey, and royal jelly extracts. 
  • It is made especially for dry and irritated skin.
  • Deeply nourish, moisturize, tone up and soften any possible skin condition.
  • The serum returns your lips skin to its natural beauty and gives them a bright color. 

Cons

  • It might not feel nice to some of you.

Skinfood For Hair

Skinfood Argan Oil Silk Plus Hair Essence 100 ml provides moisture and nutrition for healthy hair. Paraben- and alcohol-free.

I think this Argan Oil is a decent product. It makes your hair less tangly and the texture of the hair smoother when you use the product. 

However, you need to be careful of how much product you apply because it can make your hair look and feel oily if you put too much on.

Pros

  • Affordable,
  • Makes hair tangle-free,
  • Smells good, like roses,
  • Smoother hair texture,
  • Comes with pump and lid,
  • Plastic bottle making it easier to bring with you traveling.

Cons

  • Applying too much product can make your hair look oily.

Skinfood for Body

Skinfood Intensive Shea Butter Cream In Shower 335 ml is a fantastic body moisturiser for cold weather. When the skin becomes too dry, dead skin cells pile up on top of pores and cause tretinoin.

It eliminates the chore of having to moisturize your body after you shower, you can straightaway keep it in the shower area, and you can even use it as a shaving gel.
