Buckwheat Loose Powder

I used to set my BB cream with Palgantong Theatrical loose powder. Actually I am quiet satisfied with it. It gives me radiant look and good oil control. But the mini size of the product (10g) made me finished it quickly. I needed to order more and more in a rather short period. Then, I decided to look for another product which has good quality, bigger content, and (maybe) cheaper price. Reading some reviews of girls in female forum, I bought Buckwheat Loose Powder from The Skin Food.

Here is the product description: This loose powder with its soft, fine particles offers a bloomingly radiant, flawless finish. Buckwheat oil creates incredibly transparent, shine-free skin tone, with silky-smooth texture.

  • This soft silky powder contains buckwheat oil that leaves skin natural and glowing.
  • Sets the foundation and slightly mattifies skin without changing its natural contours.
  • Softens the appearance of imperfections. Completely evens out the complexion for a fresh, radiant look.
It comes in nice packaging with sponge included. Though I’ve known that the product size is 23g but I was surprised finding the packaging is quiet bulky. The powder itself is fairly fine and soft. The shade I pick is #23 (Natural Beige). It creates natural look and dewy finish.

For me, the coverage of this product is medium and not as good as Palgantong does. Just like what it claims, it doesn’t change my natural contours. The oil control is also medium. My face starts oily after few hours and I get powder stains when I blot or swipe my face with tissue. So I have to say that the powder’s lasting power is medium. One thing that a bit disturbs me is the scented powder which is quiet strong.

Overall, I’d say that this product is better than Dodo Club Fairy Skin Powder, but under Palgantong Theatrical Powder. But still, the review is subjective to each individual. Each person has different skin tone thus may get different results.

hi mapple,
I played with the dodo LP sometime ago and it seemed not bad. What's the difference between Palgantong's and Dodo's??

Hello there! I'm blogwalking here^^

I'd probably like this powder if they have a medium coverage with a dewy finish^^
I never really have problem with oil so I guess they would work just fine for me.

have never tried skinfood powder before so I'll probably try some in the future.
nice review hun^^

Buckwheat Loose Powder contains buckwheat oil that leaves your skin beautiful and glowing. Did you know that Buckwheat is also a good oil source of an essential fatty acid, Alpha Linolenic Acid that is important for the body to stay healthy. I also like to recommend for women suffering from wrinkles to use eye wrinkle creams now to reduce the appearance fine lines and wrinkles.
