powder review : skin food peach sake silky finish powder

from skinfood's singapore website:
Peach Sake Silky Finish Powder
Contains ultra-fine micro-silica powder, which immediately tightens the pores and controls excess sebum. This unique loose powder sets your make-up with a matt finish, leaving skin smooth and clean.

Apply to the whole face with a puff or powder brush.

i bought this one with my skinfood peach sake line last year. so while the toner, serum and emulsion were finished, this one is not even a half. i didn't really use it much. anyway, it is a finish powder, just like what the product said, very clearly. so don't use it as a normal loose powder if you don't wanna look like geisha.why? beacuse the colour is white! anyway, this is my thought.
first, the packaging
soo not convinient. it is soo bulky.look at this
way too bulky and too big to carry around.  not just that, the way it is packed just like that, the powder inside with tiny hole for the powder to come out, and then the cap just like that, no seperate glass to cover the powder and the puff, and there is no safety click for the cap, so if you drop it, or you drop your bag while this product inside, it could be a mess.

and it is so hard too to control the amount of product you want. i made a mess when i wanted to take a picture to show the powder. look at this:

i made a mess in my make up table when i tried to take the powder out.
next, the colour
well, you can see from the picture above, the colour is white. and it could make you look like geisha or clown if you don't know how to apply it. it is so tricky. a little bit too much and you will be too white and pale. that's why i told you in the beginning, this is a finish powder, not a loose powder. so don't use it like a powder after your bbcream or foundation.use this as a final touch after you finish with all your make up.
the scent
it smells soooo lovely, just like other line of skinfood peach sake. i think it is the scent that i like the most.

now to the product itself,
at first time trying this product, i put too much. it took me some time to figure out the best way to apply this, and turned out it was best with powder brush.

i always use my etude house brush to apply this
the powder puff is nice and soft, but it is hard to apply and even out the powder with the puff.
ok, back to the product, once i applied it well, i got this very soft silky finish. i can't stop touching my face, seriously. no wonder why they put the word "silky" as the name of the product. because it really gave me silky finish powder! i tried to dab the product on my hand, and blend it, wow! my hand felt sooo soft!!
it also gave a nice glowy-fresh finish. the peach sake line is skinfood's line for pore care and control sebum. as for this product, it helps a little bit to add matte effect, specially my nose that has a problem with sebum and pores. with this powder, my nose feels smoother, but not totally smooth. i need a good primer to make it smooth before applying any make up. this powder only help a little.

final thought,

too bad that the packaging is not convinient. i think as a finish powder i think the packaging should be more convinient to carry around, plus i think they should change the puff powder with a brush, like a small kabuki brush attached on the packaging. i will not repurchase this product because i don't find it very usefull for me.
