It’s no secret that I love Korean skin care and makeup products. I will be reviewing products I’ve owned from the following companies: The Face Shop, Nature Republic and Innisfree. Purchases usually come with samples, but I will not be reviewing samples because there’s too little product to give a complete opinion. My thoughts will be kept short – either I recommend it or not, and a couple of sentences to explain my rationale.
Because this will be a long post, I will split the posts into two posts. This is the first of two posts on Korean skin care and makeup products.
The Face Shop
1 Assorted face masks
Recommend! They’re very wet and they have a refreshing, clean scent.
2. Mild Papaya Peeling
This peels off your dead skin. I recommend this because it feels good to get rid of the dead skin and makes your skin more smooth afterwards.
3. Herb Day Lip & Eye Remover
I am kind of iffy about recommending this. It works very well, but it is VERY oily. 75% recommend.
4. Assorted nail polishes
Recommend! The nail polishes are cheap (around $3) and they dry really fast. I also own The Face Shop’s nail polishes in blue, purple and clear glitter.
5. Trendy Nails nail polish remover
I find that this works best with The Face Shop nail polishes. It’s average when removing other brands of nail polishes. It’s cheap though ($2) so I would buy this again. Recommend.
6. All Over Perfume Mist (Secret Bloom)
I used to use this a lot but not so much anymore. I mostly use a perfume from Nature Republic now. I think it smells nice so I recommend!
7. Style My Eyebrow Pencil
I recommend this. I like the colours they come in because they are very natural. I’ve also used the one I have in dark brown as a pencil eyeliner. I don’t really do that anymore, but it was something I did in the past.
8. Party All Night Long eyeshadow
I don’t recommend this because it only comes in one colour. I think that if you’re going to buy eyeshadow, you should buy a palette with at least three colours.
9. Styling Eyeliner
I don’t recommend this. One, it does not dry as fast as some other eyeliners. Two, it feels awkward to hold. Three, the experience is just not very good in general.
10. Milky Moisture Lip Tint
People usually use this to create the gradient lip look. I love the colours but I don’t really recommend this. It makes your lips VERY dry afterwards. Always apply lip balm before use, and carry a giant water bottle with you (if you have access to a water source, that’s fine too).
11. Eyeliner brush
Recommend. I haven’t tried other brushes by The Face Shop but I’m sure they are equally good.
Thanks for reading. See you in the next post!
