Skinfood Pineapple Hand Cream

I’m rather on the fence about this hand cream. On one hand it does seem to keep my hands kind of soft as it’s supposed to do. This hand cream is meant for dry skin and wrinkles, but I don’t have any hand wrinkles LOL. I think you’ll also have to keep using it for a longer period of time to see it would help with things like wrinkles.

I also like the scent. It’s very light so if you’re someone who doesn’t like things that are heavily scented like Bath & Body Works, this could be a nice alternative.

The only thing I don’t really like is that for some reason it feels a little bit waxy o_O. Usually when you put on a cream that’s thick you would feel like your hands are a little greasy, but this one feels waxy?

Do I feel like it’s a must-have item? Not really. I collect soo much hand creams/lotions. This one isn’t one I particularly reach for because I love it, but I like keeping it in my bag because of it’s small-size – very travel-friendly.

Skinfood Parsley and Mandarin Emulsion

I love this product a lot.. and I’m not even sure why LOL!! The scent of it I would not describe it as Parsley and Mandarin – for one I really don’t like parsley XD. It has a certain spiciness to the smell.

When you pour it out it looks like runny moisturizer and when applied, it turns into liquid to seep better into your skin. I put it on after I use my toner so it keeps the moisture on my face.

Usually, I use my Lettuce & Cucumber Water Jelly Cream after so my face is all nice and dewy. After I give it a couple minutes to all absorb my face feels very soft, not to mention smelling fantastic ; ) LOL.

The Parsley and Mandarin line is targeted towards troubled skin. Not sure if it has really helped in that field, but I love it anyways : D.

Skinfood Sugar Cookie Blusher #2 Bebe Peach

I actually bought this item because I thought the colour and packaging looked cute. A big mistake. I actually tried it a couple times, didn’t like it, and gave it away to someone.

I kept running my blush brush over it and couldn’t really pick anything up. So obviously it wasn’t going to show on my face. Even when I ran my fingers over it I barely got anything. I guess if you have the patience to keep building up the layers to make it noticeable… LOL.

Not recommended. I’m sure there are plenty of better alternatives at better prices >< !

Skinfood Premium Touch Pearl Brush


Is it weird that I started wearing make up only in my senior year of high school? haha! I feel like everyone starts experimenting with it so much more earlier than I did. I only started wearing it because I wanted my grad picture to look perfect. Lasts forever, you know? Anyway, after that time, my interest in makeup started to intensify and I wanted to try more and more. Thus the want to try out different ways to apply. Since I was literally just starting out though I wanted to get cheaper product so when I’m testing I don’t have to ruin expensive products.

I was eying the MAC 187 stippling brush but I didn’t want to plop down the cash I didn’t have for it. By chance, I saw this brush while I was ordering some Skinfood products to try out and I thought, “Why not? It’s affordable..” I saw why not later LOL.

If you’re just using it to buff on some powder I think it’ll be alright. I was using it to stipple on liquid foundation though and the more I used it the more annoyed I got. Initially it was okay but then little pieces of the hair started sticking on my face. I washed it a couple times and it never seemed be to be white as it was before. For some reason one day the ends of the hair turned green …. What the hell, right?

I thought maybe it’s because I stuck another brush with it to soak and somehow it affected it. I tried soaking it again but alone the next time and for a while longer than I usually leave it. Nope, worse than ever. It looks so bad right now = Like some ratty thing. At least I have the MAC 187 to take its place after that.. LOL ><.

Skinfood Aloe Vera Foaming Cleanser


“This soft, refreshing cleansing foam contains aloe extract that soothes sensitive skin, and cucumber extract to moisturize skin, while cleansing.”

Skinfood

To be honest, I never used this one for very long. If you have dry skin, definitely steer clear of this cleaner.

This cleanser looks a bit like cream when you squeeze it out but will foam up when lather it up. You don’t need much and the tube contains quite a lot – 130mL – so it’ll last you quite a long time.

The problem with this cleanser is… well.. everything.. LOL. I think it does the complete opposite of what it says in the description. As soon as I rinse this off  it feels like every single trace of oil is taken from my face. I know if you have an oily face you would hope your cleanser is able to clear the excess oil. However, I think this goes even further than your expectation to the point where your face is screaming at you to hurry up and put some sort of moisturizer back on asap.

You know when you put on peel-off masks and your face feels all tightened? I would probably equate it to that feeling.. LOL. I’m not a fan, can you tell?

I can’t believe they’re recommending this for sensitive skin.. I’m pretty sure your face would end up all red if you don’t slather on a bunch of moisturizer on after using this =

Skinfood Cocoa Lip Balm

Sooo…. I don’t think they sell this anymore LOL or should I say I can’t find it on the English Skinfood site? I can’t even find any reviews on this :( I’m quite sad because I lost this at the airport when we were waiting to board the plane to go Vancouver -woe is me-. I see that the Avacado one is still being sold though, but I haven’t tried that one.. maybe they both work the same?
 

I don’t really own lip balms because I don’t like sticking my fingers into the pot and putting them on my lips. The cute little tin pot made me buy it >_>! I ended up leaving it at home and putting it on before I put on my makeup when my hands are just washed.

Since it’s been so long I don’t remember the scent exactly, but it was a pleasant one. The lasting power for this was what made me like it the most. I’m always on the lookout for a good lip product because my lips get dried pretty quickly and I need something that will keep my lips nice and soft for a long time. When I use this I notice that I don’t need to keep reapplying it like I usually do with my lipglosses. Even chapsticks don’t do as good as this lip balm. Definitely a nice little product to keep in your pocket while you’re out. Too bad it’s not sold no more : (((

Skinfood Products Re-reviewed

I thought I would review these items again since I did them on my LJ and now I’ll move it here! Don’t mind the watermarks. I can’t retake a new picture since I don’t have some of the products anymore or never bought a new one after that @_@.

Skinfood Black Bean Nose Pack


I actually didn’t get a full box of this, and I was glad I didn’t. My friend Leen and I shared the box. I wasn’t fond of the smell and it took some getting used to. Personally, I think these work just as well as Bioré. If these aren’t easily accessible to you I probably wouldn’t go out of the way to find them. It may look like it works better because the strip is black so all your little whiteheads/dead skin show up.

That’s my opinion though. Leen agreed with me at first but then she said the more she used it she thought maybe it did work a tiny bit better than Bioré? Another person I know asks me to help her get it every time we order haha!



Skinfood Cucumber Soothing Mask (Wash Off)


This has been one of my favorite wash off masks that I own. Just bought another one recently haha! I use it all year round. During the summer it gives a nice and cool feeling to the face. It also has a nice light scent from the cucumber. In the winter (summer time too ><) whenever my face goes crazy on me I use this to calm down my face. It definitely makes a difference because the redness would go down. Especially during monthly times @_@.

Or if you use a cleanser that’s a little drying to the face, this could also help in the calming sense. Although.. probably best if you don’t use such a harsh treatment on your face in the first place?? LOL.



Skinfood Lettuce & Cucumber Water Jelly Cream


My favorite summer time moisturizer. I would definitely not recommend this for people with drier skin as it will probably provide zero moisture for your face haha! Your skin might be suck it all up and still be thirsting for more. However, if you’re like me and your skin is combination or oily it will be a nice change in the summer time.

This is scented but I really like it. It just smells really fresh and light. Not like some that try to be fresh but still end up really heavy when too much is applied. Not that surprising though that it smells fresh since it’s lettuce and cucumber. It’s nice when I wake up in the morning, cleanse my face, and apply this on :)

As it says in the name the texture is like jelly, but not as solid. As soon as it touches your skin it turns into water. It melts into your skin making you feel refreshed.

In the winter time I switch to a different moisturizer.
