Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing for extremely oily skin!
I am actually reviewing all three of the skinfood peach sake products: toner, serum, and emulsion because I have been using all three together. I have had very large pores and extremely oily skin all my life and nothing I did would help relieve this and nothing would keep my makeup on longer than an hour. I have watched countless beauty gurus on youtube and have tried all the products and techniques they have suggested with no success. Nothing would keep my foundation on for no longer than 2 hours tops. By the end of the day I could scrape my foundation off with my finger like icing (I used to use Estee Lauder double wear and now I use Too Faced Born This Way) and my pores could be seen from space. Disgusting. I searched for skincare products that would help with oil and saw good reviews on the skinfood peach sake line. I have been using the serum (toner and emulsion) for nearly a week now but the results I have gotten in that small of a time was worth sharing. I now can go a full 8 hours WITHOUT having to blot, powder, or just redo my makeup! Its soooooo amazing. My foundation looks great when I come home when before I would be in horror at the sight I saw in the mirror. Now I only have a little bit of shine. The serum (and emulsion) are dry to the touch once applied with a slight powdery feel to it, but only slight. Once applied I notice that my pores are less noticeable. However, when I wash everything off at the end of the day, my pores do not really look any smaller. I think this line just does a really good job at blurring and filling the pores and it does a FANTASTIC job at controlling oil production.
Most Helpful Critical Review Glittery face serum
This was an impulse buy I made a month ago in store, was looking for a decently priced face serum and this is what I came across. Really liked the packaging, smell and feel of the product at first. Within the first couple days the top dispenser part randomly broke off and couldn't be put back on, didn't want to return it though since I could still use it. However the deal breaker for me is when I recently noticed there's a ton of micro glitter in it! I've tried two face serums in the past and this is the first one I've seen that isn't clear. The glitter isn't noticeable on the skin unless you look closely, it's super fine milled but also super unnecessary for a skin care product. Sad I didn't see a review mentioning this when I was reading them in store or I would have passed... Also after a month I haven't noticed much change in my skin, there isn't a healthier looking appearance or any difference in texture unlike when I've used other serums of the same price range before. Hasn't helped with oil production or pore size either, wish I could still return or exchange this.

If you have sensitive skin it might make you break out a bit, but overall it's nice and made my oil production go down a lot
Moon from California
Just finished my first bottle! It smells super nice and is very light on my skin. I used to be super oily but after using this every morning, i find that my face is not oily at ALL. The only downside is that it does have fragrance and has little specs of glitter which im not a big fan of, but it works amazing overall!!
Melissa from CO
I've always had super oily skin and nothing has ever helped. Even blotting papers were useless as id have to use 6+ at a time to contain the oil. I came across this and tried it on a whim. OMG! Not only does it smell incredible, but despite no AC and a mask for rona regulations, my once shiny face now has a natural almost matte finish. When I say almost matte, I mean its not greasy gross but not suspiciously dry. Im obsessed, my skin looks and feels amazing. Definitely holy grail product
Holy Grail for oily skin
Melissa from Ft Collins, CO
I've had oily skin as long as I can remember. Between summer heat, restaurant work life and current mask requirements my skin was a mess. Way worse than normal. I've used this less than a week, and even in 100° heat while sweating in a mask, hardly any shine! Unbelievable. I've tried so many other products and this is the only thing that has worked. Plus my face is so soft now
Super yummy and smooth
Gabby from El Dorado Hills, CA
I love the way this product smells and how it makes my skin feel so soft and silky. I have been using for about a week now and have noticed a slight difference in the size of my pores. It does leave a glittery residue on your skin but it is not very noticeable at all.
Best serum EVER
KC from Niagara Falls
This is honestly the best serum I have ever used! I've used expensive and drug store skin products this has by far kept my skin glowing and clear like no other product I've used and smells amazing!! I have oily to normal skin, and it has drastically reduced oil/pores and keeps my skin hydrated. The only time I ever need to use a moisturizer other than my eye cream is if I use a heavy face mask/exfoliator. I also LOVE the Peach hydrating jelly by Skin Food. I can't wait to try the toner!
Drying, matte, slight whitening, good for sensitive skin
Smthr from US
I'm not sure about all the positive reviews for this. It's better than most skincare products in that it doesn't irritate my very sensitive skin at all. It has a very pleasant, delicious peach scent that's typical of K-beauty products. But it does feel dry on my dry skin. It leaves a slightly grainy matte finish, so if that's what you're going for, it's ok. But I'd prefer a more dewy look. There's a slight white-ish, brightening cast to this, which may or may not be what you're going for. The bottle is gorgeous and aesthetic.
Does a great job!

Does exactly what it promises! Love this serum for my nose area. Keeps my oily skin under control!
Great but not 5 star
Lilah from MN
This product smells amazing but as a moisturizer it didn't do too much for me.
Does its job
Mai from VA
i have dry skin, no history of acne.
this is my 3rd bottle of this serum. it smells nice, goes on smooth. absorbs quick. it's not a moisturizer, by any means lol but def nourishes my skin and basically made my skin poreless.
Cari S. from Baton Rouge
Y'all this was a game changer! I bought all three products in the peach sake line and wow, they worked so well!! I've been searching for skincare that truly made my pores look smaller and refined for ages (like since high school probably) and this trio is PERFECT. I've tried products from Neutrogena to Mineral Fusion and everything in-between. Their results weren't even close to this! I can't stress enough how great it is to find products that finally finally work!
On to the deets - The scent was nice, and the glass bottles made me feel like I was pampering myself. It definitely smells like peach vodka/sake, but it wasn't overpowering. A little goes a long way, and the bottles are designed so that you don't accidentally pour out too much. Even though it's not advertised as a deep cleaning system, I still felt like my face was fresh and clean after each use. I used the products in the morning after my Muddy Body Pure cleanser, then went in with my usual makeup routine. Not only did my skin look 10x smoother, but I noticed I stayed oil-free much longer!
So like I said, if you've been on a quest for pore refining skincare, look no further!
Sarah D. from Elk Grove
I purchased this to try and change my skin routine up a bit. I have very oily skin with the tendency of clogged pores. Loved this and used for about a month until I realized there was very fine glitter in it which is pore clogging. Use with caution.
Keelz from Orlando
I have always had an issue with large pores, and bought this on a whim because of all of the positive reviews. This stuff is amazing. I apply a dap on my thorn and massage it in as my last step of my night routine, and apply it in the morning before makeup application. It smells lovely and makes your skin look like porcelain.
I have very sensitive skin and use adapeline at night and have not experienced any breakouts or irritation.
This serum is really good
Gagan from NJ
This product is really good. I have added this in everyday routine. It ofcourse smells like peach. Its good. Small amount goes the long way.
Salinbean from San Antonio,TX
I highly recommend pairing this with the Peach Sake emulsion. This serum helped so much to control my shine and hide the appearance of my pores. It makes your skin feel so soft and leaves almost like a soft air filter on your skin after you apply it. It smells just like peaches too!
OBSESSED WITH THIS
P from East Coast (USA)
This serum is my new favorite. It feels so refreshing and nourishing on the skin. It is lightly scented but is not overpowering and does not linger. It works well with an array of other skincare products/brands. My skin looks and feels much more even, hydrated, and healthy.
I love this!
Lisa Pizza from Gloucester, VA
I was a little skeptical about this, but I wanted to try it out bc my pores have bothered me for a long time. And oh my GOSH, it helps me so much! I apply one pump of it on after I apply my toner (usually only in my t-zone) and it works instantly! As a disclaimer, I have VERY large pores and this doesn't make them disappear, but it DOES make them look normal, which is so so amazing for me!! I've been using it for a few weeks and it's barely made a dent in the product because a little goes such a long way. I WILL be repurchasing when I run out.
Shelly from Vancouver, CA
I have EXTREMELY oily skin. My make up gets oily from 1 1/2 -2 hours after applying and smears off. I have to retouch constantly. NOT ANYMORE!!! This stuff is an angel sent down to earth. I no longer have to stress about fixing my make up. I use it and my make up looks flawless. Pores minimized and NO OIL!!! I only had my make up on for 7 hours yesterday and didn't touch up once! I almost cried. GET THIS!!! If you have oily skin look no further. I'm in looooove and will be purchasing forever. It also has one of the most heavenly smells. Can't say enough good things.
So far so good! But ..
Maddy from Los Angeles, CA
I've only used this product a few times so far .. I will say upon the first couple of uses I do love it! It smells great, not overwhelming & it's super lightweight. Absorbed into my skin quickly. My one gripe is that it has micro glitter in it! I didn't see anyone mention this in any reviews prior to me buying, so I just wanted to leave that as a disclaimer for anyone else looking into this product. I might not have even noticed unless I looked closely at my hands right after applying. Not that it's a deal breaker or anything, just unnecessary to me personally. Anyway, still a great product so far! Hoping the results make up for the glitter.
Awesome to even skin texture!

Use after toner, put in spot where most oily
Favorite Face Serum!
Mystic from Sandusky, OH
I have combination skin, so some parts of my face are extremely dry while others are very oily. This serum has helped create the perfect balance for my skin. It has also minimized the appearance of my pores which is a huge problem for me. The peachy smell is just a bonus! Definitely plan to repurchase and use this regularly in my skincare routine!
I loved this product
Ash from Davenport IA
I use this product after every time I wash my face and before I go to bed, I used to get a very oily t-zone and would struggle to find a formula that would work and not make me break out. I can put this on at night and the next day have little to no oil build up on my face, truly a miracle product. Bought it on a whim and I'm so happy I did. It has greatly reduced my acne and moistures my face while keeping it from feeling oily, sounds contradictory but it's true. If you haven't bought it you should.
My favorite, even my boyfriend uses it!!
Savannah from San Antonio
I really like to put this on before I go to sleep because whenever I wake up I am super oily but with this on it makes my skin super normal lol. My boyfriend likes the way it melts into your skin and you don't have to feel that something is there after.
Best. Product. Ever.
Gabby from Los Ángeles, Ca
I suffer from extremely oily skin and used an excessive amount of products just to attend to reduce the oil. This product took over and did more than what ten products combined did for me. It does not over excessively dry out the skin and it leaves my skin feeling very soft. Definitely recommend for anyone who suffers from oily skin!
My Go-To Serum!
Amber from Texas
I use this product a lot, and I have the whole peach line that SkinFood has. I am in love with it. After I clean my skin, I use the toner and then use this. It is so soft and gentle on my skin. It's not oily at all but it feels like it moisturizes. This is great for my combo skin. I only wish it came in a bigger size!
