Skin Food: Tea Tree Cleansing Foam, Banana Yogurt Mask, Coconut Body Scrub, Avocado Rich Essence Mask Sheet Product Review

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Skin Food is a South Korean company located in Seoul, known for producing skincare and cosmetics made from natural food ingredients.The owner of the company has been involved in the skincare business since 1957. Their logo is a guardian angel and it was designed to convey the message to their customers of the purity and goodness of their products.(source)

The words food and natural are what peaked my interest in Skin Food. This company  has a HUGE range of products, so you definitely want to read up on what will work for your type of skin. Many of their products will work for various skin types. I ordered an arrangement of goodies and was VERY impressed with Skin Food's products! I will be ordering more and doing more reviews on their products. Here's what I tried and how I rated them.
Tea Tree Cleansing Foam
 Skin Food's Tea Tree Cleansing Foam is SUPERSweet!
I'm extremely smitten with the Tea Tree Cleansing Foam cleanser by Skin Food. I haven't had one break out! My skin feels super smooth & soft. It has a very soft tea tree scent and it lathers up nicely. This tube contains a lot of product! I've been using it for a month and I still have 1/2 the tube left. Your face feels clean, but not dry after using it. For the record, I have dry & sensitive skin. I experienced no adverse health reactions while using this product. This cleanser has tea tree extract, a natural antibacterial agent and AHA to effectively exfoliate dead skin with deep cleaning. This cleanser is about $8 - $10 on eBay.

Banana Yogurt Mask
Skin Food's Banana Yogurt Mask is SUPERsweet!
If you're looking for moisture and soothing for your skin, this is the mask for you! It feels SO good when you apply it. It has an AUTHENTIC banana scent. You'll go bonkers over the banana scent!!! When you twist the lid open it smells like bananas. Nothing phony or fake about it. It even has small bits of granules in it (like banana pieces or something).

This mask never dries on your face or peels! It's not that type of mask. It's also not one that will exfoliate. Again, MOISTURE and SOOTHING is what it does! A treat for your face. I SUPER LOVE IT! This is about $8 on eBay.

Coconut Body Scrub
Skin Food's Coconut Body Scrub is Sweet!
If you're looking for a scrub to add moisture and softness to your skin, then this is your scrub. This body scrub DOES NOT have a coconut scent (at least not to my nose!). It's more like maple. It looks like it contains two kind of granules. Maybe the white is the coconut. Exfoliation is very light. It's a gentle scrub (more of a moisturizer in my opinion). This scrub makes your skin feel smooth and soft. My skin had a glow after using it.

This is about $12 on eBay! I really like it, but I was disappointed it didn't  have a coconut scent.

Avocado Rich Essence Mask Sheet
Skin Food's Avocado Rich Essence Mask Sheet is Sweet!
You will look like Jason from the movie Halloween (all Asian masks look that way) when you put this mask on, but your skin will feel so soft afterwards. This sheet does smell like avocadoes, but it's a very nice and pleasing scent. It's dripping with product. It adheres to the face well. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes or more and rub the remaining in. It feels cool to the skin. This mask contains avocado oil essence, Vitamins A & D, hyaluronic acids (moisturization) and beta glucans (skin resiliency). Once I removed the mask, my skin looked plump, had a healthy glow and felt very moisturized. Once it dries, you still feel the product. I really liked it. These masks cost from $4-$8 on eBay. You only get ONE, so I thought it was expensive.

Tomorrow, I'll start with the popular Etude House brand!
It's geared more to teens, but a LOT of adults buy from them too! HAHAHAHA
If you have a favorite product from Skin Food, let me know! I'm a NEWBIE!
Have A Great Day!

Wow Kim these look good enough to eat. I am really into organic skincare at the moment (fed-up of paying for products that smell lovely and don't deliver ;-)
You mentioned you can buy on e-bay. Is it safe to buy from e-bay i.e are these the genuine product? Always a bit wary of e-bay for some things .

Nicky mywishstyle said...

Hi Kim, nice review !


Dale Steliga said...

Ooh I really want to try these products Kim. I love how all the foods they use like coconut, avocado and banana are all so soothing and smell good in the first place. I'm always on the outlook for new skin products, especially if they make my skin smoother.


kissandmakeupsbeautyblog said...

Great review, all these products look good! The banana mask and the scrub are calling me name...

Mica said...

Shame that the mask is so expensive, it sounds lovely! :) I really like the sound of the banana yoghurt mask too....makes me want a banana now haha.

Nikki LunarLights said...

These looks amazing :) I'm the same as you, I'm always attracted to things which say 'natural' haha! Very helpful review xx

Natalia A said...

So so so curious about this brand, Kim! Thank you for the review! x

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

I love Skin Food products. My favorite product from them would have to be their Skin Food Lime Secret Shine Base in Pearl. It is used as a primer but gives you an extra wow factor because it gives you a certain glow. I also super love the Skin Food All Over Muffin Cake Finish in nude hues. It is perfect for contouring! And as for Etude, I have their BB Magic Cream. I used it for a couple months but I stopped using it because I fell in love with a different Korean Brand, MISSHA. I do love Etude's cute packaging. You should try Missha products too. They are a bit more expensive compared to Skin Food and Etude but it is absolutely worth it. I have Missha's Signature BB cream and it comes in the most gorgeous package ever. The BB cream is super light weight and very spreadable. I heard Skin 79 is a good Korean product too but I haven't tried it yet. So far Missha has really won my heart. =)

Brigita said...

Wow, that looks amazing. Love that there are companies that still make their products from natural ingredients. Will have to find out if they ship to Europe. Thanks a lot for the info! :)

Unused Napkin said...

I've never heard of this brand until now! Thanks for the feature, Kim. That avocado mask sounds really good.

Emmy said...

That UnusedNapkin should have been under my acct...oopsie. But yes on the avocado mask.:D

Jillian said...

The coconut body spread looks divine. Although, I'd be disappointed by the lack of scent too. It should smell like summer!

TheTinyHeart said...

I love that they use fruits in their products! I bet that banana mask smells heavenly!

MaysaAndSunshine said...

I want to get that Banana mask like right now. The way you describe it sounds so heavenly Kim. Wanna buy everything...haha but i should wait and try out what i just bought first. I dont remember what exactly i bought a few years ago. It was some sort of emulsion which worked quite well. I am on a hunt for a goos Korean BB cream next.

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

A friend of mine gave me the Skin Food Rice Mask and I loved it. I would def. recommend checking it out! You're totally reminding me that I want to check out more of their line. Everything you reviewed looks so good Kim! Thanks! Also, have you looked into or as resources?

Hey Kim, Korean has the best beauty products! That banana mask looks so good although I'm not a fan of bananas. Haha. Too bad the coconut one doesn't smell like coconut, if so, that would be so nice.

Mary Jo @trustyourstyle said...

Kim, great photos and review! I love how dedicated you are to trying new product. Even though I get so much of it, I'm always a bit nervous to try new ones as I don't want my skin to go crazy and tend to go back to what works for me. You on the other hand are truly adventurous! I love that!

I've heard a lot of great things about Skin Food, but I was especially glad to hear them from you - I always trust that your reviews are completely honest and unbiased! The banana mask sounds particularly lovely to me; I've always been a big fan of bananas, so I'm going to have to hunt some down on ebay :)

I love Skin Foood. It is the only product that I use here in s. Korea. You should try their Argan Oil Conditioning Mask. It is uh-mazing! I was planning to do a review on their products soon too. Thanks for this :)

Mademoiselle Mode said...

I love avocado and coconut ^^

New post - Kisses


Wonderful share Kim. I will have to get more samples, I had a tee Tree one, and love products like this. I used quite a lot of Korean skincare and Japanese skincare because of the yellow pigments in my skin. I buy a lot from Boots sometimes. :) Wishing you a great weekend dear /Madison xx

Thanks for the review. I've actually heard of this brand before, and yes, the word "food" sparks an interest :O) I think I would like the one with the banana scent.

april said...

its nice to try them all...they all look yummy for the skin. I love Asian products.

Diva In Me said...

Ooo..all the products you reviewed looked so yummy! LOL!
We have Skin Food stores here and their products are reasonably priced. I use to buy their mask in sheets and my favourite was the one with Aloe Vera. If I'm out in the sun the whole day, I would take a pack and put it in the freezer and after shower, I will put it on for about 15 minutes. Feels really good!
