[SKINFOOD] FRESH APPLE *Mild Pore Peeling Gel & Sparkling Pore Cream*

Recently I received my ordered FRESH APPLE products from [SKINFOOD]. I reviewed already the FRESH APPLE Smooth Pore Cream and got now the Mild Pore Peeling Gel, the Sparkling Pore Cream and samples of the Toner, Emulsion and Serum.
This product line is recommended for oily skin with enlarged pores

A No Sebum Spot Serum is now available as well!!

Description: Unripe green apple extract and carbonated water controls sebum production and tightens pores.
[Fresh Apple Story]
Unripe is an apple that tastes bitter and unripe which cares sebum and contact pores, which is eventually beneficial for pore care.
[Carbonated Water Strory]
Primary carbonated mineral water is one of the world's three "mysterious orient" water is called a freshness to the skin will be soft.

FRESH APPLE Mild Pore Peeling Gel:
The peeling comes in a greenish tube, same as those of cleansing foams. It has an metallic twist-off lid and contains 150ml. It has exactly the same design as the Smooth Pore Cream - just bigger.
The description on the back of the tube is completely in Korean, so it's hard for me to read the ingredients.
But I found out that it contains 150mg Carbonated Water and 750mg Green Apple Extract. These two are the main ingredients as well.
The consistency is gel-like and has a slight whitish color. The Mild Pore Peeling Gel can be used by all skin types coz it doesn't contain any harsh granules like many other face scrubs.
I apply it to my dry skin and rub it over my whole face until the product starts to peel off, then I wash it off with warm water.
Like all products in this line it smells for me like cucumber but that's probably the green apple. It doesn't have that sweet apple scent you might know from other apple products.
How to use: After washing and towel-drying, massage onto face in circular motion, and rinse with warm water.
Price: around 14,- €/ US$17.50 
Bought at: eBay (gooditem2012)  

What I love:  
It's gentle enough for sensitive skin! 

What I don’t like: 
There is nothing I don't like. 

Will I buy this again? No, it will last for a long time and should be enough. 

FRESH APPLE Sparkling Pore Cream:
Description: A cooling and hydrating pore tightener with fresh unripe green apple extract and carbonated water that controls sebum production and tightens pores. 

The face cream is inside a greenish (glass) jar, has also a metallic lid and contains 50g.
On the bottom is the description and Korean and English (can be opened).
As many other products the cream got a second cover underneath the lid. The main ingredients are Green Apple Extract (5,000mg) and Carbonated Water (2,500mg).
The refreshing gel cream does moisturize well and get absorbed quite fast. It has a whitish color and the same green apple scent as the other products in this line.
A very nice face cream! I wished it would sparkle/ tingle a bit on the face, though, since it contains carbonated water.
How to use: After emulsion or serum application, dispense an ample amount onto the palm and smooth over the entire face. 

Price: around 17,50,- €/ US$21.50
Bought at: eBay (gooditem2012)    

What I love:  
It refreshes and moisturizes my skin without getting too oily.

What I don’t like: 
Nothing yet!

Will I buy this again? Maybe I would but I'm not sure! 

FRESH APPLE Sparkling Pore Gift Set & Sparkling Pore Serum:
Beside the two full size products I also got some samples. The Sparkling Pore Gift Set contains the Sparkling Pore Toner and the Sparkling Pore Emulsion with each 5ml content.
Both products are colorless while the Emulsion has a thicker texture than the Toner - it's still rather runny, though.
The Serum has a white lotion-like consistency and I find it a bit similar to the Peach Sake Pore Serum
Price: around 3,60,- €/ US$4.30 (Gift Set);  around 1,60,- €/ US$2 (5 Serum Samples)

  1. woaaaa..you have this already??? i envy you!! :) i really want to try this,,, but i still can't decide to buy the emulsion or cream, because my skin is combination. oily and large pores only on the nose and chin area. how is the cream? is it rich or light,,

    1. I'm not sure if the emulsion does moisturize your face enough... I would recommend you the cream. It's a fresh, light gel cream. =)

  2. does the serum cause you breakout?
    i hope not, but i just want to know *lol


    1. I didn't notice breakouts on my skin yet! =)

  3. i tried this peeling gel for a few days but didn't get it at all :D well it makes skin cleaner and softer, but ..it could have been be more than that :( but yeah, i guess it's great for VERY sensitive skin

    1. Yeah, the peeling effect of those gels is not as strong as of face scrubs.

  4. Ooooo...the face cream sounds really awesome. :o I definitely want to try some parts of this range! Thanks for sharing~

  5. I'm gonna try this stuff out.


    Check out http://www.asianbeautiful.com/ for great products.

  6. Wow nice haul! I really like the SkinFood packaging for this line. The peeling gel sounds similar to Laneige. Thanks for the review!

  7. Hi Tira,thanks alot to your great review \^o^/
    I finally bought Fresh Apple smooth Pore.. it's very soft
    i'm even use it as a hand cream xD
    Because my face very oily, it's give a smooth feeling, and give enough moisturize for me :D
    I will buy this again when running out xD
    Now I'm interested to try apple mild pore peeling. But a little confused between this apple peeling, magic bubble peeling or magic enzyme peeling..
    Still find out about those xD

    1. Thanks for reading! =)
      I didn't try out the other two peelings but Magic Bubble Peeling sounds interesting, though. These are from ETUDE HOUSE right?

  8. yap .. from etude ^o^ and in the end, i bought magic enzyme peeling xD.
    After scrubbing my face with Jeju Volcanic Pore Scrub Foam ( this makes ur pores open. [i guess xD ]) then i tried a sample of enzyme peeling to make sure all dirts all gones..
    when i rub my face, it need some time to see something alike granules.. ( i think it will take some time if ur skin are already cleaned. but when i rub it at my knee, its work better :D)
    i like use it but not on my face :D
