The Face Shop – 11 Product Reviews

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

the-face-shop-herb-day-lip-eye-makeup-remover-waterproof

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!

Review: The Face Shop Mild Papaya Peeling

20170330_002149_mh1490858656665

This removes dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling smooth afterwards. When I was first given a sample, I was shocked to see how much dead skin I had on me. I had always known that they were there but seeing them still made me surprised. That’s why I decided to buy it – to get rid of the dead cells that clog pores, and for clearer skin!

Use this 2 times per week max. on your face and neck. I find it especially useful for the neck area. Apply, then massage with one or two fingers for 30 seconds. Wash the dead skin off later. I prefer not to take close up photos of my face, so I’m using my hand instead in this post.

Warning: Gross photo of dead skin cells. u_u

Final verdict: 

My hand in the photo feels smoother than the hand that did not get the peeling product. It is extremely satisfying to get rid of dead skin cells. I like knowing that they are temporarily gone. LOL

I don’t know any of the empirical research on the benefits of having dead skin cells peeled away. All I know is that this product actually peels dead skin off, and it does not hurt at all. I feel cleaner and my skin is smoother. It also has a nice scent that is not overwhelming. I really like this aspect of it.

$18

The price is a little expensive because the bottle is not that big, but I personally like this Mild Papaya Peeling product.

I wasn’t going to blog today but…

It happens to be my 3 year anniversary of blogging! My friends convinced me to write this… 🙂

THANK YOU to everyone for all the love and encouraging words. I love you all.

Ahh I’ve had a long week filled with exams and assignments! I’m so tired… This is a much needed face mask I picked up at school. The Face Shop was handing these out for free. ^_^

I love flowers.

(I’ll probably watch One Piece after this.)

See you until next time!

My Day in Pictures 2

20151023_150316

When I am not dressed up, I wear casual clothes and shoes. On these sort of days, I still wear my everyday accessories (which have changed, AGAIN).

When it comes to nails I use polish from The Face Shop because it dries quickly. By the time I am done painting my left hand, all the fingers on my right hand and the thumb of my left hand are already dry! I’m going to buy a bright pink polish and that will be my new everyday colour. =D
