1st Impression: The Skinfood Gold Kiwi Serum, Cream, and Sun Cream

Happy New Year everyone!! 

It's my first post of this year and it's gonna be a quick review or maybe a first impression to be exact. It's about the Gold Kiwi Whitening series from The Skinfood. I have several sample of this product and decided to try it for a few days.

Taken from The Skinfood Website:
There is a secret about gold kiwi in New Zealand. New Zealanders eat gold kiwis without peeling them off in order not to miss out their nutritional effects. Skinfood has newly discovered a substance found in the gold kiwis's skin, incorporating it into the skincare line - Gold Kiwi, helps restore your sun-damaged skin from deep under.

The Skinfood Gold Kiwi Serum

This serum has a semi transparent color, the texture is like a runny lotion so I have to be careful when putting the serum in my hand. I usually rub the serum between my palm and pat the serum to my face. It has a fruity scent but not too overwhelming and quick to absorbs too. Some serum leaves my skin feels a bit sticky and oily but it's not the case with this serum, after I use it my face feels moisture and fresh and not sticky. A sachet last me for about 3 days and I use it twice a day. This serum also do no break me out, usually when I'm not compatible with a certain skin care it breaks me out after 3 days or so.

The Skinfood Gold Kiwi Cream

The cream is very rich and has a milky white color. Just a small portion is enough to cover my face because if I put it too much my face will gets a bit oily. I use less of this cream during the day because I layer my face again with the sun cream, otherwise my face will feels a bit oily. For this cream to absorbs completely I have to wait for several minutes otherwise it will feels sticky when I layer my face, not a problem though since I kinda like smelling the kiwi scent. A sachet last me for about 3 days and I use it twice a day. After 3 days this cream also do not make me break out.

The Skinfood Sun Cream

The sun cream is the most creamy of all the Gold Kiwi Line. It has a white milky color and a pleasant kiwi scent like the other. Since I tend to put more sunblock, a sachet only goes for a day and half. So for 3 days I use 2 sachet of this sun cream. The sun cream took a few minutes to absorbs and leave my face surprisingly glowy. My face tends too looks oily after I put on sun cream (maybe because I put on a tad too much) but surprisingly this sun cream makes my face look fresh. This sun cream has SPF 36 which I think is enough because the difference from SPF 36 and SPF 50 are about 6 minutes longer if I'm not mistaken, so why bother right?? After 2 sachet this sun cream also do not break me out. Maybe I'm gonna buy this Gold Kiwi Line after my Tomato Line empties.

  1. I ever used Skinfood Gold kiwi too, I like the serum as well. But I was using it in the night because this line is way too rich for my oily skin. But sure this one is worth to try

    Nice review^^


  2. that's why I'm using it as less as possible, it's very rich.
