Mia's Review: Skinfood Pore Fit Cushion Bottle

It's been a while since my last update. I've been busy tying up loose ends at work before I fly off to Taiwan for 9 days of holiday! But before I move on with my series of travelogue, let me put up another beauty related review first!

First it was the BB cream craze, then it went on to CC creams, then the BB cushions. And now, you have a cushion bottle, which is in fact, a BB spray! 

 Skinfood Vita Water Pore Fit Cushion Bottle, retailing at between $22+ to $28 online at qoo10 or althea. 
I've got this for quite a while back, but I didn't want to put up a review with just a few times of using it, hence dragged on until now to put up this post. 

With SPF50+ and PA+++, it will give you pretty decent sun protection. Being the usual No. 2s in all the Korean make up line, I stick to the usual and it was a pretty good fit. 

The cooling effect of the product was the main pulling factor that made me want to try it out despite the fact that Skinfood bb creams break me out like some miracle breakout causing product for me back then. 

It comes with an extremely small puff that still does its job decently, with an equally small sized mirror that really serves not much purpose. It's impossible to rely on such a small mirror to do any sort of make up, be it just touch up. 

Using the product is really quite fun, as you have to shake it vigorously with the cap turned to OFF for a good 10 to 20 times before you twist the head to ON and pressing down on the cap for 5 times to spray the product directly onto the small puff. Only after you're done with the recommended 5 pumps, open up the cap and start patting the product soaked puff onto your face.
And the cooling effect is no myth. I'll even say it's an icy feeling at first few pats, which is the main reason why I enjoy using this product. 
Scent wise, there is a slight chemical-alcoholic aerosol spray kind of strong underlying smell, which the light fragrance of the product is unable to mask. It doesn't really bothers me much though it might be something unbearable for those with really sensitive sense of smell.  

Coverage wise, I will say this is really light and barely covers anything at all. Let me show you with the trusty eyeliner test!

 This is how much it can cover when I directly pat on 2 thick layers without much blending. 

And after proper blending with a thin, 3rd layer. 

Due to the spray nature and with cooling effect, I feel that the finishing is more to the matte (and very very natural looking) side, but yet not very suitable for oily-skinned ladies due to pretty poor oil control, which results in low staying power. 
And after using it continuously for a few days, I did develop these tiny bumps (I like to term them clogged pores) at various spots of my face. So if Skinfood make up products tends to break you out, this probably will, too. 

So to sum it up:

1. very light coverage with minimal coverage
2. strong underlying aerosol-spray chemical smell
3. poor oil control
4. low staying power
5. fun way of putting on makeup
6. nice cooling effect during application
7. will most probably break you out if you're 'allergic' to skinfood make up products

If you've dry skin and has also tried this BB cushion bottle, do let me know how did it work for you!

If you do not have a Skinfood retail store near you, fret not! Skinfood Pore Fit BB Cushion is also available on or now!

Till then,
Mia Foo


  1. Wow, enjoy your 9day holiday in Taiwan!:) First time to learn about a BB Spray. Looks really interesting. ^^

  2. I like BB Creams and CC Creams - bottle, cushion, or spray, I always look at the consistency. But I do like to try new ones every now and then. I have used anything Skin Food. I hope though that this one has longer staying power.

  3. I don't normally use BB or CC creams, I just really stick with eyeliner and lipstick and that's it. Sounds like a product that would clog your pores rather than help them.

  4. I've always been curious about Skinfood products especially their scrubs! Would love to check this cream out. :D

  5. It's actually my first time hearing about a BB bottle cushion, so this one's interesting. I might buy it on my next trip to Korea this coming Feb. I'm hoping I don't break out from it bec I use other skinfood products and they work fine.

  6. I'm one of those who get breakout easily, so I guess this is prolly not for me :(

  7. It's nice that aside from cooling your skin, it also has an spf protection. I guess the effectiveness of the product depends on your skin type.

  8. I do hear bad reviews about Skin Food making people break out. So I guess you need to try it out first to be sure before using it. The name Bottle Cushion is very inventive.

  9. One, this looks like a super fun product, esp the way to dispense & apply it!!! Two, the spf & pa factors are way too good, that I'd love to try it too.. Three, I have a super sensitive skin that breaks out at the slightest disturbance, so, no thanks!!

  10. This sounds like a great product if you're just looking for minimal coverage, which is what I try to use! I will have to look for this product. Thanks for sharing! :)

  11. wow. i'm not that familiar with thise, i believe that my female friends will love this review though. i'll ask them to check this out. :)

  12. It's been years, but I still haven't tried any BB or CC cream. I tried Ponds BB cream once though. I want to try other skinfood products too because I often encounter it on other blogs too. For me, I don't really believe in cooling effects in face products, they're just temporary and doesn't last long, maybe just a few minutes. I love your eyeliner test, will try that too if I'll review products.

  13. oops, the coverage isn't so good. Because of my acne marks, I always prefer full coverage facial products.

  14. Will share with my friends :D
