Foundation Fridays Skinfood Peach Sake BB Cream - Review, Pictures, Swatches


Welcome back to my weekly series called Foundation Fridays.  Because I couldn't find a day of the week that rhymes with BB Cream I decided to include BB Creams in this series because I use them as my main foundation anyway.   Today I bring you a BB Cream from a company in Korea called Skinfood.  I really like Skinfood cosmetics and skin care. They take a somewhat "natural" approach to skin care by using various fruits and vegetables and herbs for specific skin conditions.  They use everything from Aloe Vera to Mushrooms to Gold Caviar for various skin treatments.  Most of the products smell awesome and many of them are quite effective.  Skin food has been around since 1957. If you have not had a chance to check them out, you really should.


The BB Cream I selected is called Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF 20 PA+.  The Skinfood Peach BB Cream (As I like to call it) is specifically targets at those with oil to combination skin. The peach extract soothes oily, troubled skin, and the sake is supposed to help control oil production.  There is a SPF of 20 in this product , which is nice.  The ingredients listed on the tube are in Korean, so unless I can find a translation I'll just pretend it's all good for me.  


The Tube is on the smaller side, 30ml, but the cost is on the lower side as well. Right now you an pay anywhere from $15 to $9 per tube.  The dispenser is not your typical squeeze tube, it has a pump dispenser. I'm not really a fan of the pump dispenser because sometimes it does not work very well. Sometimes you have to pump it a bunch of ties just to get product to come out and other times it works just fine. It's odd.  Whatever. That's the only bad thing I have to say about this BB cream.


Yes. It's super awesome.  The color I selected is #01 Light Beige. The Peach Sake BB cream comes in 2 colors, but yet again it's light and medium.  The color range is not very useful for those with darker skin. The #01 looks fairly yellow on my arm,  but sheered out it's not so yellow.  The swatch is a heavy one.  That is one pump from the dispenser. That can cover almost 1/3 to 1/2 of my face.  The Skinfood Peach BB cream spreads very nicely over my skin and does not feel greasy or too silicone-y on my skin.  My skin feels like it can actually breathe.  That's nice. Trust me. The coverage is medium but building it up could lead to a kind of mask like quality to your skin.  It covered my minor blemishes well and fading acne scars too. The finish is matte, but it has a nicer less powdery matte finish. It's almost like a satin, but no shine.  It's kind of nice actually.


The Skinfood Peach BB cream wears really nicely. It does not oxidize or fade.  I got a good 5-6 hours of wear out of it in my more oily areas (T-Zone) and about 8+ hours of wear in areas that are drier on my face.  I did not experience any breakouts from wearing this BB cream which is EXCELLENT!  My skin's oil production was not quelled while wearing this, but honestly, my skin is so oily I don't think anything can stop it so, I don't find fault with this BB cream for that.    My pores were covered well with this BB cream and I had a very smooth and even complexion. WIN!


Do you NEED this?  Well if you have mildly oily skin and a light complexion this might be the BB cream for you.  I purchased this BB cream on eBay from the RubyRuby shop. Their prices are very reasonable, shipping is usually free and the shipping time is super fast!   Win! Win!

    1. I have used the mushroom one but I didn't really like the results...however that was years ago. Hope this one works for you too!

  5. I love the brand and love their Aloe BB cream, but they aren't really "natural". :\ I saw some ingredients lists once and there's quite a few parabens in their products, although they do smell good enough to eat.

    The other thing that kind of worried me was that I was on a nail polish kick and Googled some colors and found this article from two years ago that said they found high levels of benzene in Skin Food's nail polishes. I'm sure they've corrected that, but it put me off from ordering any foreign nail polish!

    I will still use their BB cream though. The Peach Sake pore perfecter smells great too.

    1. It does look fairly yellow on my arm. I'm REALLY pink toned on my arm but really red on my face so the yellow neutralizes the red...but I am doing reviews for other BB creams coming up that are not as yellow.
