An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Apple is well known for containing high amount of antioxidant as well as collagen and elastin, which are important to retain a youthful skin. Today, we’re going to post our review on Skinfood Fresh Apple Sparkling Pore line!

1. Green Apple

It has a gel-like texture which makes it suitable for sensitive skin and is milky-white in colour. As you clean your face with this pore peeling gel that consists of green apple extract and carbonated water, it gently removes impurities and dead cells from clogged pores, forming clumps of impurities.

I personally think that this product is very suitable for me as I have very oily skin. This product not only hydrates, but also brightens up my skin leaving my face with a light pink tint without making my face glossy.
Skinfood Fresh Apple Sparkling Pore Toner
This toner comes in the size of 160 ml in a glass bottle, costing only RM 70.90 inclusive of GST. Different from other toners, this toner is a carbonated toner with fresh unripe green apple extract that cleanses soap residue and skin impurities while tightening pores. It is advisable to apply with a cotton pad because it has a very light and watery consistency which makes you feel like applying water onto your skin. The toner is absorbed into your skin within 3 seconds to maximise hydration of your skin. This results of this toner is visible within one week, where pores are clearly tightened. This toner has a very light and refreshing minty scent. It reduces sebum production, which makes it suitable for normal and oily skin.
The results of this toner can be seen with only 5 times of usage. I personally find this toner very hydrating, but because of its consistency, i will have to use a cotton pad to dab it on my face before it evaporates. It doesn’t make my skin oily and i feel very refreshing with its light minty scent.
Skinfood Fresh Apple Sparkling Pore Emulsion
Emulsion is a light moisturiser which is used after toner. Unlike other emulsions, the Fresh Apple Sparkling Pore Emulsion gives you a very light feeling. At only RM 70.90 inclusive of GST, the emulsion comes in a glass bottle of 160 ml. Its texture is a bit watery, slightly thicker than the toner in its line and is transparent in colour. It has a very mild apple fragrance that gives you a very refreshing feeling. You may dispense an ample amount on your palm and smooth it all over your face after you apply your toner. It moisturizes your skin without making your face oily and is very suitable for people with oily skin. However, using it for a long time on normal skin type might cause your skin to be too dry.
This emulsion acts as a last touch up on my skin, to moisturize and reducing sebum production at the same time. With the usage of all three products combined, I didn’t have to spend extra money on oil absorbing sheets to help remove the excess sebum.
