I hope you’ve had a flying start for 2018! I have to say, I’m quite tired from the holidays haha! It must be cause I’m getting old… haha no, just kidding! But with all the dinners, the going outs, the family gatherings,… I haven’t really slept much and all the stress that also came with the packages, it totally drained me. I’m satisfied, but drained… However, at the same time I’m really pumped and excited and full of plans for 2018. It might be contradictory but it’s the truth: I’m tired and pumped at the same time.
I got some really amazing gifts that I’ll share with you in my next posts. Some of the gifts were self gifted also haha. I got a cute little kit on Sephora.fr from Skinfood. This is my very first time trying out this brand, just because I’ve always thought it was a bit on the expensive side. Back when I was getting into Korean make up, I was more drawn to the super cute packages from Etude House and Tony Moly. But Skinfood is cute in its own way and just a little bit more simple. As the name says it, it’s food for the skin so the products come in bottles that look like they’d look nice in your kitchen :p.
Sturdy “organic” looking jar. It actually looks like a food container, with quite a clean and simple label, which is quite typical for this brand. This is not the full sized product. And as it came with the kit (21.95€/kit with the 3 jars). So you pay approximately 7.32€/jar of 50g, which is a reasonable price. Surprisingly, it’s not much more expensive than the full size when you calculate per weight. For 100g, you pay 14.50€…
The Product & it’s claims
It’s a mask with nutritious rice extract for soft skin texture (as it has exfoliating properties) and brightening effect. You are supposed to massage it onto your cleansed skin and rinse it off. So in my humble opinion, this should be called a scrub and not a mask…
It has a soft and pleasant clean (slightly laundry) scent.
How did it perform?
I spread a decent amount on my face and let it set for several minutes, even though that wasn’t really required. I just thought, hey it’s a mask, it should at least sit on my skin for some time :p.
Yes, yes… I’ll give you a minute! Laugh as much as you like. But let’s be real though. Who wears sexy lingerie while doing their face mask? Not me, anyways…
The texture is slightly gritty with big chunks of soft (like cooked) rice. I guess you could compare it with some rice pudding made with milk…
When I rinsed it off, I did feel the exfoliating effect while massaging, but it was quite gentle, which I really liked. After that I dried my face, my skin felt incredibly soft and not dry. Though I do feel the need to put on a cream afterwards.
This is my first Skinfood experience ever and… it was a very good one. I’m pleasantly surprised and can’t wait to try out the other two products that I got in the same kit. I’ll definitely check out this brand next time I go to Asia. This little kit certainly was a great way to get to know this brand a bit better! If it’s still available, make sure to check out this little set on the Sephora website!
Have you tried Skinfood before? Are there any products you’d recommend or like me to try out? Please share!
Have a wonderful week friends!
