SkinFood Black Sugar Mask

SkinFood Black Sugar Mask was another product I took with me on my weeks long trip. I knew was going to be in a humid place, so I thought bringing a scrub along would be a good idea. After a long of heat and sweat, having something to scrub the grime off of my face would be refreshing.



I was really glad I'd brought this along actually! It worked well. The scrub was a thick dark brown sugar paste, and although the sugar grains were large, they were not overly scratchy. If anything, they melt away gradually in the moisture of the shower. Still, I was careful not to over exfoliate, so I only used this scrub every other 3rd night. Thank goodness it wasn't harsh for my skin either. My face felt super duper clean afterward, and my skin was nice and soft too.



The only surprise about this scrub, I would say, was the smell. I was expecting a sweet sugary scent (it was brown sugar, after all!), but instead I got a soapy scent. Totally completely unexpected, and kind of off-putting. I love brown sugar, so using it as a facial scrub sounded like a great idea to me. But a soapy scrub on my face? Umm...not so much.

Still, the scent was not enough to deter me from the scrub. So I would say this scrub is worth trying if you have the chance!

Hey, I got a couple of testers pouches from a friend of mine last year and I thought those are edible...I don't quite remember how it smells those, kind of sweet I guess...

I like the stuff from skin food so far, but I realized that many Japanese so called whitening face wash (I am using one)have those very mild formula that soften the dead skin cell to makes skin appear more transparent (that's how it "whitens" I guess...) So now I only use scrub on my feet and legs...

Hi Citrine,

Gasp - on your feet and legs? I think you might have made SkinFood cry LOL

That's actually another great use for those sugar scrubs. If I remember correctly, there are lots of other brands out there that makes a brown sugar body scrub, probably because the sugar are coarse and just a tad harsh for the face! I just use a body brush for body exfoliation, but now that I think about it, I should use the SkinFood scrub on my elbows and knees too...

Hey...I just ran into this blog...you have a fun blog here. Do you know where I can buy SkinFood products in th US? Thanks...

Hi Anne!

Welcome and thanks for visiting :)

For SkinFood you can try Gmarket at http://www.gmarket.co.kr/index.asp
It has an English site too and works better for PCs (rather than Macs). Gmarket is like a Korean version of Amazon.com for all things Korean, and you will be able to buy the majority of Korean cosmetic and skincare there at retail price (pretty darn cheap!). You can pay via credit cards or PayPal.

Or, you can find SkinFood on Ebay, but for double/triple/quadruple the retail price plus shipping.

Otherwise, I don't really know where else you can get SkinFood in the US, sorry...

I hope this helps.
