Review: The Skin Food Peach Sake BB Cream and Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder

Before I start, here are my skin’s conditions so that there won’t be any bias as different skin type will give different results. :)

Skin Tone         : Medium with yellowish undertone
Skin Type         : Oily and sensitive, prone to sweats around nose and upper    lip areas.   
Skin Conditions : Dull, dehydrated, congested pores, fine lines, dark spots (caused by acnes not pigmentation), small pimples, whiteheads, enlarged pores and redness~ *OMG!!arrrgghh*
Eyes                : Complete package! Dehydrated, obvious dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, deep wrinkles, crow’s feet and discoloration

Since I have oily skin, I never stop in pursuit of make-up items that will last longer on my skin without constant touch-ups. So when I stop by at The Skin Food Mahkota Cheras, the Beauty Consultant suggested me to try the Peach Sake Pore BB Cream with Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder. These Peach Sake range is for those with oily skin and enlarge pores..Hmmmm..*so me~*

Peach Sake Pore BB Cream : RM44.90 (affordable)
Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder : RM79.90 (*choking!*)
The BB cream comes in two color, so I took No 2, the natural color. As for the loose powder, there is only one color.

Peach Sake BB Cream in 02 (Natural)

Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder
The texture is very light
Blends well..No hideous white streak..But did not really fully cover my vein..Light coverage
My 'dimsum steamer' O__o
See the white streak?? Haiyoh~

Thumbs Up

Peach Sake Pore BB Cream
1. I really like the smell of the BB cream..
2. After a few hours, my make up still intact as if I just apply them
3. No sticky feeling throughout the day yet not drying… I really do feel comfortable
4. Easy to apply...Smooth in texture..Glides on your skin easily
5. Natural finish

Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder
1. I’m hook at the packaging the very first moment I saw them. Reminds me of the dim sum steamer..
2.The scent is very pleasant to the nose..*haha*
3. The powder is very smooth and refined in texture
4. Gave me flawless effect
5. Mattifying effect and non-transluscent..
6.  Oil-controlling properties!! I love how my make-up stay long throughout the day..Finally~
7. Require less touch ups

Thumbs Down

Peach Sake Pore BB Cream
1. Since it only give sheer finish with light coverage, without the pairing with loose powder, I won’t be using it during special events or occasions
2. At first usage, I’m having difficulty pumping out the BB cream. I’ve shake it and pumped it like 100th times before the BB cream is finally pumped out *I’m freak out and nearly in a brink of bringing the BB cream back to the store as I thought it was the faulty tube*

Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder

1. Quite drying. Heads up to those with combination/dry, dry or normal skin. :)
2. Even though I love the flawless finish as well as the scent, I’m not too keen on the color. It’s too light. Over-application of it will lead you to becoming the next failing Chinese opera actress.

Hmmm..tricky one..Although I really adore the mattifying effect, but something is still missing here..No, I won’t repurchase unless I fail in my journey of searching for perfect powder. Teehee~

My face after the application of both products..kinda thick aight?? 
So go slow with the loose powder.. >__<
