Review: Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher

14. October 2014

I was planning to write this post later, but I’m so in love with this blush that I have to share my thoughts about it with you: I’m talking about the Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher! This blush is from Skinfood’s spring collection from this year and considering the point that new products appear out of nowhere every month this might already be considered old and not up-to-date, but nevertheless this is my new everyday blush since I received this from KollectionK one week ago ♥

Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher

Skinfood is one of these brands which are competing with Etude House in terms of design – in my opinion at least. It is a Korean brand with vintage appearing design of their products which occupied my heart very quickly. The products are using the beneficial effects of ingredients, which are familiar to us in terms of “food” like vegetables and fruits. Their motto “Food that is good for your health, is also good for your skin.” reflects this brands’ ideology nicely. Their spring make-up collection of 2014 was called “Milky Rose” and the design of the products offered within this collection is beautifully selected, showing vintage-style rose drawings and pastell pink packaging. The design is really beautifully chosen and fits perfect for a spring collection. Apart from the Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher liptints, nailpolish, make-up remover and a make-up fixer were offered.

Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher

The Rose Essence Soft cream Blusher is available in 6 different shades. I picked No.6 called “Edge Rose”. According to the promotional pictures it is probably the boldest color of the 6 shades. Let’s look at our beauty again from the top and the back:

Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher

The back side contains a short description and the number of the shade. It also has the production date printed on it. If you open up the lid you’ll find that the complete backside of the lid contains a large mirror, which is very convenient. The material of the container is made of sturdy plastic and although the color of the plastic is a light pink it doesn’t appear like cheap quality. The lid closes properly, too, and will not easily flip open, so it is safe to carry in the handbag. The first thing you’ll notice when opening the container is the scent: it is AMAZING! It smells of roses and you know that I’m a lover for rose scent. If you hate scents, you’ll not like the product, if you love the scent of roses get yourself one of these quickly! I’m so in love with the scent that I sometimes only open up the container of the blush to smell the scent XD …okay, that’s a bit weird, but anyways….

Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher

The blush itself is a cream blush, so it has a soft and creamy texture which is easily to apply with only using the fingers (this might be considered as  not hygienic for some of you and is the only negative aspect of this blush that I could find after all). I don’t have any problem applying it with my fingers. By the way, for those of you that are afraid of putting bacteria on your face when using your fingers I found a super interesting product on Wishtrend called “OMG Spray it” from Chica y Chico which allows you to sanitize your products frequently (if you consider to buy it you have to check out the Promotional Wishtrend codes for October, because you can receive a free Klairs Be Clean Soap!!). Back to the Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher: the pigmentation is great, it is buildable but also blendable super easily, too, so you can choose by yourself if you want pigmented cheeks or only a light color. Also, the creamy texture turns into a matte one when blended in. It looks very natural and lasts all day. So, as you see this is a super quality blush and I’m really thinking to get all the different shades, because it is so georgeous. You can get this at KollectionK for 11.08 US$.

      Absolutelly, but mainl because I didn’t want to spend that much money again, only because I loved the packaging…but now since I got the chance to try it, I’m thinking about buying the other products from that line , too….or some more colors for the blush….I love rose-scented products.

  • Sooyoona 15. October 2014 at 16:23

    Oh ich fand die ganze Kollektion schon unheimlich schön ♥ Der Blush sieht toll aus, eine bezaubernde Farbe und das Design erst. Aber ich mag den Geruch von Rosen nicht so gerne, wobei man über dies noch hinweg sehen könnte ;)

    • Frl. Schnee 25. October 2014 at 14:05

      Ich fand die Kollektion auch sehr schön, aber wollte nicht wieder so viel Geld dafür ausgeben XD…Jetzt würde ich am liebsten alle Produkte nach kaufen :D Ich bin ein großer Rosenduftfan…vllt auch ein bisschen deswegen, weil es viele orientalische Süßigkeiten gibt die mit Rosenwasser versetzt werden und ich das so gewohnt bin aus meiner Kindheit…und dann an leckere Sachen denken muss XD

    The packaging is very pretty and the color too. But I´m not fan of ths type of products for my oily skin. And well even if I wash my hands very well before put vreamy products on my face the results is always the same my skin over oily. But very pretty packaging.

    • Frl. Schnee 25. October 2014 at 14:06

      A lot of people don’t like balmtype blushes unfortunately, although I read some reviews for this blush that they claim that this one works great with oily skin…Luckily my skin is dry, so I can easily use this kind of product…the packaging is so lovely *_*

    Awww, the Milky Rose collection is so pretty! There is a Skinfood store near my parents’ house that I always shop in, whenever I visit them. I’m definitely going to have to visit the store soon to check out this new collection.

    • Frl. Schnee 25. October 2014 at 14:09

      I wished we had a skinfood shop nearby…unfortunately I have to order via internet…I’d love to get more of this product line….*_*

    the pink shade surely looks so pretty!

    • Frl. Schnee 25. October 2014 at 14:09

      I’m surprised how easily it is to blend and how nicely you can decide how vibrant you want the color. I can really recommend it :)

  • MizzJ 28. October 2014 at 6:09

    What a pretty color, almost like radiant orchid! I think this would look really pretty when applied really lightly.

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:08

      Yes, I agree! It does look super natural and pretty when used lightly. I’m really happy about having this blush :) Thanks for commenting :)
