Is your skin hungry for good skincare? Skinfood is here to serve up a nutritious skincare spread to help make your skin healthier with food-based ingredients. The wonderful StyleKorean have sent me some Skinfood skincare products to try out.
Skinfood Carrot Moist Effector
The Carrot Carotene Moist Effector is a moisturising ampoule that contains 75% B-Carotene from carrot root and seed oil. B-Carotene provides antioxidant and anti-ageing benefits, while soothing skin and improving moisture.
I really enjoy using this ampoule, it sinks into my skin super fast and hydrates it immediately, without making it look wet, shiny or greasy. I can put it on and get going with the rest of my skincare routine straight away. This is a strong favourite of mine in this Skinfood collection.
One slight downside of the ampoule is the scent. It’s quite an earthy, masculine scent, which I think is the natural fragrance of the ingredients. While I’m not too keen on the smell of this ampoule, it’s not a deal breaker for me.
Skinfood Carrot Calming Water Pad
Toner pads enriched with carrot extract for moisturising skin. These pads are also available as a larger tub of pads, while I was sent some individual packets of two pads to test.
The Carrot Calming Water Pad is soaked in Carrot Extract and Carrot Seed Oil, which are rich in Beta-Carotene and antioxidants to moisturise and soothe skin. The pad itself is a thicker cotton pad that has a soft waffle texture.
The pads are quite large, covering my whole cheek when I use them as a toner mask pad. They are comfortable to use and help cool my skin and calm redness. My skin is nicely moisturised after using these pads.
Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Essence
The Royal Honey Propolis Enrich Essence is packed full of propolis extract, royal jelly and honey, which works to hydrate and strengthen skin. These ingredients also offer antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties.
This essence has a similar texture to other Propolis products; a bit sticky and fairly slow to sink in. It leaves me looking a bit too shiny when I apply it, so I tend to use this one in the evening. However, when I wake up my skin has a lovely dewy natural glow that makes this essence totally worth it.
It really plumps up my skin and hydrates it well, without feeling heavy or oily on my skin.
Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask
A thick, clay-based mask that makes use of egg white for pore refining benefits. The mask is made with Bentonite and Kaolin clay, which clears pores and improves skin clarity. Albumen extract, more commonly known as egg white, is the star ingredient of this mask, and helps to minimise the appearance of pores, tighten skin and refine the texture of skin.
This is one of the best masks I’ve ever tried, and it’s fantastic for my oily skin. It is really easy to apply and a little goes a long way.
The mask doesn’t dry tight on my skin, like a lot of clay based products do. It washes off to leave really soft and smooth skin that feels nourished and clear, without being stripped of hydration. My skin looks smoother and more even. A winner for me!
Skinfood Black Sugar Mask
The Black Sugar Mask is packed with black sugar granules which exfoliates skin as a physical scrub. It also includes macadamia seed oil and shea butter to help nourish and moisturise skin.
This mask makes my skin incredibly soft and smooth. If you’re not a fan of physical exfoliators, this one isn’t for you; it’s very scruby! But I like physical scrubs because it helps keep my milia down. I think this mask would make a great body exfoliator too.
