Korean people always seem to have the clearest skin to me, especially when I be binge watching on kdramas and admiring (mostly envying) their beautiful clear skin. Their secret: A lengthy 10-STEP process that consist of:
- Eye Makeup Removal
- Cleanse (usually an oil-based cleanser)
- The Refresher aka Toner
- The Ampoule
- Sheet Mask
- Eye Cream
- The Night Cream
Like damn gurl. Before, I started this korean skincare routine, my routine only consisted of cleansing and moisturizing and then BAM! Done and easy.
I’ll only be reviewing one of the 10 steps today which is Step #6: The Ampoule.
I purchased the SkinFood Peach Sake Pore Serum because of its cute packaging to be honest. I purchased it for $16 where you can purchase it here from Ulta if you want to give it a try.
A cute miniature alcoholic bottle. I like how it’s made out of glass and it has a pump. #Win
A smooth serum that eliminates shine from enlarged pores and excessive sebum production with finest sake and peach extracts.
Like peaches. Yum.
A runny white liquid that turns clear once you smooth it out. It takes awhile to dry but once it’s absorb into your skin, it feels very smooth and silicone like.
Valid Claim? Yes.
Most serums are usually those that try to minimize the pores but this has a different claim. This serum definitely makes me less oily and shiny from my enlarged pores. This product didn’t make me break out, it just made my skin feel smoother.
My Overall Impression:
This serum doesn’t make my pores any smaller but it helps minimize the oils on my face. I think wearing this serum alone won’t do much but if used as a makeup primer, it makes your skin have a smooth canvas to put on that foundation. My foundation lasted all day with the serum underneath it and my face was definitely less oily and cakey. This “serum” should be renamed as a makeup primer instead. I would repurchase it as a makeup primer but not as a serum because it won’t do anything for my skin if I wear it alone.
