Established in 2003 but with proud roots in the beauty industry going back to 1957, Korean brand SKINFOOD offers a diverse range of quality skin care and makeup products whose simple formulas are based on the nutritive power of food. Anchored by the belief “we are what we eat,” the brand sources organic produce through ethical channels whenever possible, delivering unique, nature-inspired nourishment that caters to all skin types. From different versions of the famous SKINFOOD mask to vegetable-based toners, SKINFOOD products – in particular, SKINFOOD skin care – have rightfully won a reputation not only for their fun packaging and efficacy, but also for their skin-friendliness. Nowadays, the company boasts a global presence, with stores in the U.S. and across Asia. As it goes from strength to strength, SKINFOOD continues to shake up the industry with tailor-made products championing natural, wholesome beauty, all the while placing a premium on healthy lifestyles.
Many common fruits, vegetables and grains make great ingredients for skin care as they are chock-full of vitamins and minerals. The pineapple, for instance, is known for its brightening and exfoliating properties; tomatoes have the power to brighten dull complexions and tighten pores; cucumbers provide a soothing and hydrating effect; and rice offers deep cleansing, brightening and skin-softening benefits. Through intensive R&D, SKINFOOD has unlocked the power in everyday produce, adding them to unique formulations that target concerns ranging from breakouts to sagging skin. The SKINFOOD Pineapple Peeling Gel, for instance, is packed with enzymes to reduce inflammation, as well as Vitamins A and C to prevent aging – a quick massage into skin also removes all dirt and impurities.
The SKINFOOD Lettuce and Cucumber Watery Cream, made from moisturizing cucumber and lettuce extracts, is a treat for dry, irritated skin. For those looking to even out skin tone and blur blemishes, the Tomato Whitening Line, which stars the SKINFOOD Premium Tomato Whitening Cream, might be the answer. With its mix of sun-kissed tomato extracts and stabilized Vitamin C derivatives, this cult fave produces an instant and pronounced glow. Meanwhile, the Rice Daily Brightening line offers brightening and tone-correcting benefits courtesy of its mix of 20% Odae rice bran water and natural rice powder. The line’s hero product, the SKINFOOD Rice Mask Wash Off, comes in a cutely packaged tub and has a rich, bouncy texture that provides perfect spot treatment to sensitive, stressed-out skin.
Black sugar and protein-rich egg whites aren’t only ingredients for dessert – they also pack a punch when it comes to delivering skin care benefits. SKINFOOD has harnessed their nutritive properties to produce two specific lines – the SKINFOOD Black Sugar range and the SKINFOOD Egg White range – each with a flagship wash-off mask. The SKINFOOD Black Sugar Mask, like its close cousin the SKINFOOD Rice Mask, is a perennial bestseller, as is the SKINFOOD Egg White Pore Mask. The Black Sugar Mask, which contains organic black sugar granules, provides a gentle scrub as well as superb hydration for all skin types, nourishing intensively while ridding skin of excess sebum, dirt and dead skin cells. Fitted with a self-heating formula, it also opens pores up for optimal absorption of vitamins and minerals, resulting in glowing complexions. Formulated with protein-rich albumen (egg white) extracts, the Egg White Pore Mask smooths, brightens and tightens skin, producing a fine, poreless finish. For the perfect end to a long day, indulge in SKINFOOD’s simple but spa-worthy masking routine. Rub product onto cleansed face in an even layer, leave on for 10-15 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water, and wake up to fresh, translucent skin.
Besides everyday foodstuff, SKINFOOD also goes out of its way to seek premium ingredients like propolis, caviar, rice sake and snail mucin. The Royal Honey Propolis line combines propolis (bee glue), royal jelly and black honey extracts to fortify skin barriers while providing hydrating, anti-aging and antiseptic benefits. The bestselling Royal Honey Propolis Honey Enrich Essence, in particular, protects skin from environmental damage while amping up its moisture-retention capabilities. For a complete anti-aging skin care routine, the Gold Caviar line – which includes toner, emulsion, cream and serum – will come in handy, being chock-full of wrinkle-reducing caviar extracts. Targeting excessive sebum production and enlarged pores, the SKINFOOD Peach Sake line utilizes a mix of high-quality rice sake extracts and peach extracts. Masking and K-Beauty enthusiasts, meanwhile, will be glad to know that the SKINFOOD sheet mask selection includes a coveted snail mucin version, which is packed with mega infusions of this powerhouse ingredient to produce a smooth finish for rough, dull skin.
SKINFOOD believes that the perfect makeup look begins with a flawless canvas. Like the brand’s skin care products, SKINFOOD’s BB creams, concealers and face powders suit all skin types, even sensitive and acne-prone skin. Made from skin-soothing peach extracts and fitted with Pink Sponge technology, the Peach Cotton Pore Blur BB absorbs excess sebum and blurs imperfections to produce a radiant-looking complexion. From the same peach-based line comes the Peach Cotton Multi Finish Powder (ranked sixth in YesStyle's Makeup Bestsellers 2019 – Face Powder Category), which provides a matte, photo-perfect and non-drying finish to your skin. For perfect coverage of under-eye circles, look towards the SKINFOOD Salmon Dark Circle Concealer Cream. Featuring salmon roe extracts rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, it provides subtle anti-aging effects. Alternatively, opt for the Black Sugar Satin Full Cover Concealer, which comes in a creamy, lightweight and moisturizing formula perfect for warmer days.
