Skin Food Aloe BB Cream

I have read many good reviews regarding this product. And as many of us are, I 'm also on the oilier side of the planet. So, I decided to check this out for myself.

It says on threads that this is a very good BB cream especially for oily types. So, after double cleansing, I applied it on my face having a mild coverage as a make-up base. I personally think that the shade I got wasn't the correct tome for me since my skin appeared to be darker after a while since it has oxidized.

I should have gone with No. 1 (lighter shade) since it tends to become darker over time, it'll be blending with my color. I don't think this matches my skin type because it gets oily after 4-5 hours on my face even if I set it up with loose powder and a pact.

I'm thinking of buying the Mushroom BB cream in shade 1 after this. For now, have to put up with it..

I give it a 3.5 out of 5 for its oil control and 4 out of 5 for its smooth finish.

Skin Food Milk Shake Point Make-up Remover

I bought my first milk shake point along with my white grape fresh light pact sometime last March 2009. It wasn't really what I expected it to be. It feels really light when applied using cotton and it practically removes make-up in an instant no matter how thick your foundie is.

I think since it has milk in it, it doesn't only removes make-up but it makes my skin smooth as well. After using it, my face feels soft. It also leaves an oil based film on the face but after a while, it dissolves and gets absorbed by the skin.

I love this make-up remover and I'm planning to buy a while year stock of it! haha!

I give it a 5 out of 5 :)

Skin Food fresh Juice C Serum (Whitening Care)

I remember buying this instead of my 2nd White Grape Fresh Pact since they don't have a stock w/ my shade which is NB23.

Here's the review:

  • Coverage: I found it slightly sticky after applying. After a while, it dries on the face and settles a transparent film.
  • Effect: I noticed my pimple marks lightened after 4-5 consecutive nights of application.
  • Scent: Lemony citrus

Over All: 3 out of 5

Not bad for a whitening serum. I just hope it gives a more refreshed look and whitening effect after long consecutive days of application (which I haven't done since I get lazy sometimes).
Works well for spot whitening like pimple marks, blemishes, etc.

Skin Food White Grape Fresh Light Pact

This was my first buy from Skin Food :) I really need a pact that time when my Mom and I came across a SF Boutique at the mall.

It is really pricey for a compact powder (like Php 1,400+) so I was really skeptical back then. But after 2 months of use, I super loved its effect! :)

Here's the review:

  • Coverage: It is really sheer when applied. It's very light and doesn't look made up. What I like about this pact is that it doesn't have a white cast on camera (especially w/ a flash)
  • Effect: It leaves a matte finish on the face. A perfect canvass for colors (blush, highlight, eye shadow, etc.)
  • Shades: Its a bit limited coz it only has 3 shades I think. And with the shade that I bought which is NB23, it's still light for the typical complexion of a Filipina.
  • Scent: Lemony citrus.

Over All: 4.5 out of 5

It's a good buy for a pact. Money is definitely worth it :) This is perfect for everyday use. Very light and sheer.
I love this product!!!
