Product Review: Skin Food Peach Sake Pore BB Cream SPF 20 PA+

Packaging: It's a tube pump without the straw in the middle, which is really smart because it promises to squeeze out every. last. drop. of product. ^_^ It's still awkward for me to hold because the tube is malleable and not stiff like the SK-II pump bottles, but I figure that I'm just not used to it yet. One thing that I'm not particularly satisfied with is the pump itself. It's stiff so I have to apply a lot of pressure to the pump, and when I do it squirts out. It's hard for me to control the amount I want to use because of that stiffness in the pump, but it's workable and not too bad. It's not an overwhelming amount of extra product that we're talking about.
Texture: This product is creamy and falls in the middle of the Missha bb cream (thick) and the Liole bb cream (watery). It blends in great and absorbs easily too.
Smoothability: Because the product's texture is creamy without the grease and oiliness, smoothing and blending this product into my skin is awesome. However, this product does accentuate the pores on my nose because it has good coverage but that coverage doesn't fill in the pores. What I like most about this is that it lets my skin get oily naturally and doesn't do anything to speed up the process.
Coverage: This has color! I'm not well versed in "light," "medium," "full" coverage, but basically this has color and it evens out my skin tone especially paired with the right powder. It's like food and wine. ^_^ For me, I think this is heavier than light coverage but not quite up to par with medium...? I mean, I'm having breakouts at the moment and I can still see the different colors of my pimples, but they're not as obvious as before.
Scent: It smells sweet and reminds me of fruit candy. But the scent disappears once it absorbs into your skin.
That's it for now!
