Of all the Korean skincare and cosmetic brands that are available in Singapore, only SkinFood captures my interest, thanks to their pretty packaging, wholesome natural goodness of food ingredients and affordable pricing. I haven’t actually examined their ingredient list since those in English are not readily available. But from what I can gather from their website, they use mostly herbal and plant ingredients with no colorings, additives or preservatives.
I would love to try more of their products, just that their outlets are less accessible to me unless I venture out to look for them. But it looks like my wish will be granted as they now have an outlet at AMK Hub. I do some of my grocery shopping at the hub so this naturally means I can visit the store more frequently.
SkinFood Apple Whitening Range
Anyway, I realized that I have not reviewed all the products I’ve used from SkinFood. So I’ll be doing that soon. For a start, you may like to check out my earlier review of the Apple Whitening Essence and Apple Whitening Emulsion under the SkinFood Apple Whitening Line. This range uses arbutin, apple, cucumber and acerola extract as the key ingredients for whitening effects. However, it didn’t perform well for me, or maybe I did not use it consistently enough to see positive results. But I have to concede that the product texture and smell are extremely agreeable.
SkinFood Vital Juice Hand Essence
The other product I’ve tried is the SkinFood Vital Juice Hand Essence. Again, it’s got a delicious smell but aside from that, I don’t find it exceptional in performance. It’s lightly creamy, not rich at all and hence, leaves no sticky or greasy residue. I would rate it as an average hand cream which takes out the dryness from my hand. Plus I kept wishing it was a lot smaller so that it’s easier to carry around. But since the 60g was about S$10 when I bought it, so it was still worth a trial.
SkinFood Black Sesame Hot Mask
This is a very interesting mask which smelled exactly like black sesame and felt hot as soon as I applied it on my face. I like the fact that this is a mask I could use during my bath, massage on my moist face, and rinse off after 3 – 5 minutes. Very convenient and yes, it did leave my skin feeling clean and soft afterwards. But I never got to buy the full tub after trying out a few packets of this sometime ago. Well, because I was eyeing some of their other masks actually.
SkinFood All-Time Best Sellers
I’ve been keen to try out their best sellers; namely their Rice Mask Wash Off and Black Sugar Mask Wash Off. It wasn’t available when I wanted them and now, I need to exercise some self control as I already have my hands full with my existing masks and exfoliating products. Their Carrot Collagen Eye Sheet is also another product I’m eyeing, but it has been out of stock. And of course, many have raved about their Aloe Sun BB Cream with SPF 20 which helps to reduce blemishes and brighten skin tone. This product is also available in a compact form. I do need a good excuse to try this though!
SkinFood Hair Care Range
I have tried some samples of their hair shampoo and I have to say, they’re fairly good. The SkinFood Salt Mineral Hair Wash for oily scalp looks like something I can use too. Anyway, I have on hand, their Hop Beer Hair Wash which I will review soon. So keep a look out for it!
