Review: Skinfood Peach Sake Pore Pact ( + Swatches & Demo) 🍑🍑🍑🍑

1:46 PM

I recently hit major pan on my current favourite pact, so I figured it would the best time to review Skinfood's Peach Sake Pore Pact. 🍑🍑🍑

In my experience, Skinfood makes affordable, cute products but the key is that they work! I know it is a deal breaker for some, but the use of Comic Sans font cracks me up! Somehow, it works with their kitsch aesthetic, so I'm all for it. Among the plethora of food-related products is Skinfood's Peach Sake line, a skincare line with makeup items as well. I have the toner and the other Silky Powder and have previously had the serum--all seem to work as intended.

Much like any other pact: this peachy themed pact has a simple case with a mirror inside, with a branded, round puff. The outside case is a pale, kitsch peachy pink with a peach on top and is small enough to easily fit in a purse or makeup pouch.

With a faint sweet peach-like scent, the powder itself is a light beige skin tone so it is best suited for pale (not super pale) to medium skin tones. It feels soft but a little chalky and can cake if applied too hastily, but it is primarily marketed for oily skin. Before use, a new pact has a peach motif pressed onto the surface. Here's a photo from last year of mine:

Using the puff provided is a good option, although it does seem...flimsy. It can get dirty quickly. I have used a mini damp Beauty Blender a couple of times, making sure to press or roll the sponge gently on my skin, and yielded similar results. I did try a regular powder brush and the brush bristles help to give extra, unwanted texture to my already textured skin.  

The key is to press the Peach Sake Pore Pact into the skin, not rub or smear.


A side note--for cleaning, I've found that either Kose Softymo or a pump of shampoo (particularly Ichikami Rice Bran Shampoo) works the best to revert the puff back to its original clean state. I use this method for my other rubycell puffs and sponges.

I have solidly dry skin but lately, I've noticed that I've been developing some extra oil (probably due to some major, serious dehydration and the DRY WEATHER........) on my T-zone area. Normally, this would not be the powder of my choice! I use this Skinfood pressed powder pact on the center of my face only. With that in mind, I've been using both this powder and the Silky Pore Powder from the same Peach Sake line, only if I use a particular sticky or dewy cushion that I want to last longer. The powder is matte and does suit oilier skin types, so it can extenuate any texture or dryness on the skin surface. The rice bran is supposed to help with sebum control, while the peach extracts give some vitamin A and C into the skin. Cool!

I find that the Peach Sake Pore Pact lasts for at least 4 or 5 hours on my face, up to a good 8hrs (depending on what I've been doing + how much I've sweated), as long as I take my time during application. If I rush, it will look very cakey, immediately. As long I use keep the powder to the centre of my face, there is minimal cake but if I coat my face with the powder, then there will be dramatic caking.

I've also taken to applying a light sweep of this powder to my under eyes, right in the inner corner and downward, since I have a strong line extending down from there--it hides it! For this reason, I've grown to like this powder, despite it not really being for my skin type.

Here's my face, while at work. Makeup almost always creases right underneath my bottom eyelid after application, so no surprise there--since it's such a strong line. In the photo below, I used Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream in Cover & Bright Fit--which is pretty dewy and moist and needs to be set somehow for any sort of longer wear. I find that using Missha's M Magic M Cushion, then a selective portion of this powder makes a better face, for longer wear throughout the day.   

As you can see, the powder today looks dry on my cheeks but pretty ok on my T-zone. Whenever I sweat a bunch, it looks less dry and keeps my face looking natural.
