Product Review: Skinfood Peach Sake Pore BB Cream (#1)

After having my faith restored in BB Creams, thanks to Maybelline and Purederm, I decided to try other brands and tested them as well. I know I have already mentioned a couple of times that the reason I did not use any for 2 years is Skinfood Mushroom Multi-Care BB Cream as it gave me such negative results. But being hard headed, I tried another variant from that brand - Skinfood Peach Sake Pore BB Cream. I got the lightest shade again which is #1 and I gave myself almost a week (or probably even less) to test it. And here are my thoughts on this product.

Description at the back of the tube:
Containing Peach extract that soothes oily, troubled skin and Sake that controls excessive sebum secretion, this light-textured blemish cream effectively conceals skin impurities and gives a natural coverage for a flawless complexion.

What I like:
- The scent. It smells really good (like peaches), one of those very few scented face products which I can actually tolerate the scent.
- Shade #1 matches my skin tone very well.
- Thick and creamy and applies smoothly on the skin, without the heavy mask-like feel, providing light coverage which can cover minor blemishes (see swatch below)
- It has SPF20 PA++.
- Locally available at Skinfood stores and online resellers (which, by the way sells this for less than half of the store price).

What I don't like:
- It oxidizes on me. It initially matches my skin tone but give it a few minutes to turn dark on me and it will.
- It's supposed to be good for oil control but it makes my skin look not oily but rather greasy and dirty - the same exact experience I had with their Mushroom variant.
- It gave me 3 pimples after using it for less than a week, probably 3-4 days.
- It emphasizes my pores and the dry patches on my skin.
- My face gets red spots looking like mosquito bites that are itchy a couple of minutes upon application.
- The pump is annoying, don't even get me started. Alright, it doesn't give me the control I need when pumping out a product. The first time I pumped it, a little product was wasted as it shot across the room. It wasn't that much though, probably a pea-size that would've been enough to cover the entire face and neck. The amount of product it gives you is inconsistent. I mean I really do not get the point in having a pump in a squeeze out tube.

Overall rating: 2/5

Will I buy again? No. I give up on Skinfood skin care/face products. They just do not work for me even though they work for others.


Blending it

Blended, see how it somewhat concealed the freckles and sunspots on my hand?

Have you tried this BB Cream? :)

Happy Tuesday! :P


  1. sorry it didnt work for you.. my bad experiences with bb creams also discouraged me in using them too but i am thinking of using one Japanese brand, so i might give that ago :)

  2. Nic, there is a Japanese brand of bb cream? I didn't know that. :)

  3. awww... too bad skinfood breaks u out =(
    the 1st BB cream i have ever tried is Skin79 Hot Pink and its great! didnt break me out.. I tried using Skin79 Shiny pearl and its great as well..

  4. I haven't tried this but the Skinfood mushroom one does not work too well on me :) I guess each individual definitely reacts to products like these differently

  5. Krhyz, I really wanted to like Skinfood products but they just don't work for me. Except for their concealers. :) I haven't tried Skin79 Hot Pink though I have been seeing it on eBay and read good reviews about it. :)

    Nikki, I totally agree. This works very well on others but definitely not on me. :(

  6. pam ^_^ yup there's a lot on ebay but i bought mine via fb ;) it was gabmble for me, bought the whole bottle n good thing it worked ;)

  7. i do not like this bb cream too.. i dunno know why a lot are raving about it..

  8. i haven't tried any BB products because I don't know what is it for HAHAHA!!! :)) but a lot of people like BB products

  9. Khryz, good thing that gamble paid off! You're one lucky gal. :P

    Donna, me three. I guess this helps keep their oilies at bay. :P

    Nadine, it's a multifunction product in one. But you already have great skin, you might not need this one. :p

  10. It must be the fragrance used by skinfood that is making you break-out..

  11. would you believe it i bought the peach sake toner, and pore minimizer and the only thing i liked about it was the scent.. he he BB creams like skin79 and faceshop work quite well

  12. Beverly, yeah, it could very well be the fragrance. Though I have tried their tea tree cleanser and broke out with it too.

    Saltvinegar, Haha! Same here, that's the best thing I like about this product. :P Maybe I should give Skin79 a try. :)

  13. oxidation is a no no for me as well! lol i hate looking darker than i already am :/

  14. Yikes I also don't like products that oxidizes, it's really a pet-peeve! Too bad coz it looks promising and cute packaging too:-)

  15. naku Pammy, sayang naman you're allergic to it... =(

  16. Any, I really don't like oxidation too but it's something I have to deal with since I am acidic. :(

    Mina, true. It's really not funny when a product that is already the lightest shade and matches your skin tone oxidizes! :(

    Kim, yeah, guess Skinfood face products aren't for me. :(

  17. nope didn't tried it...
    thanx for the review and sorry it don't works for you!

  18. I guess I'm part of the group who won't be experimental with BB creams anymore =( Breakouts talaga! At least 2 or 3 worked for you Pammy =)

  19. Peach & Pink (I love that), that's sad that you have finally given up on BB creams. I gave up on it but curiosity got the better of me. Maybe you can still find something that works for you? But if you're uber sure that you're done with BB creams, there are tons of other makeup you can experiment on! Hehe. :P

  20. Not many people like this pump..on paper it sounds like a great idea but it doesn't really work quite as it should.

  21. BB Cream Queen, yes, I agree it doesn't work the way it was supposed to or the company has intended. :)

  22. I'm curious about this bb cream. So far, most of their bb creams make me oily throughout the day. It's unfortunate because I really like how red bean and cactus look on my skin (shade 1). Lemon tea was too pink for me.
