The Face Shop Products Review

1. The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam


Starting off with The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam. If you are thinking this is some sort of quality cleansing foam containing rice water & all. I am displeased to lớn let you know that this is nothing but just lượt thích your normal Ponds Face Wash. It’s not outright bad, but it’s not something extraordinary.

The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam has the most common cream cleanser texture và a pearly appearance. A tiny pea-sized quantity of the sản phẩm is enough lớn clean up my face. The cleanser foams up really well, cleanses extremely well pulling out makeup, impurities, oils, và everything from the face, leaving it super squeaky clean, along with making my skin dry và stretchy. Like most face washes, it instantly wakes up tired, dull skin and imparts a temporary brightness. The brightening effect hardly lasts for a couple of minutes. Even with continuous usage, twice a day, this does not provide any long-lasting effect of brightening the skin as claimed.

Personally, I found this cleanser to be harsh on my skin, so I wouldn’t really recommkết thúc this for everyday use. This would suit ladies with very oily skin but then don’t forget lớn moisturizer your skin post-cleansing.

2. The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Fresh Soothing Gel


This is my most favorite amuốn all The Face Shop Products. This is a great multi-purpose hàng hóa & I totally loved using this huge tub of Damyang Bamboo Gel. This was a nice change from my regular Aloe Vera Gels. The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Gel almost looks và feels like The Face Shop Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel with its colorless & weightless gel texture, but the Bamboo Gel is much more hydrating and soothing on the skin than Aloe Gel.

The Face Shop Damyang Bamboo Gel can be used As A Moisturizer, As A Wash Off Mask, As A Sleeping Mask, As An After Shave, As An Acne Spot Treatment, As A Hair Detangler, As A Primer, and Also Mixed with Foundations. My favorite way of using this was as a Wash-Off Wash. I apply a thichồng layer of the gel & let it work for trăng tròn minutes and then rinse with generous amounts of water. This method really soothes và calms tired dull skin after harsh sun exposure.

This is specifically meant for dry, dehydrated skin, but from my personal experience, this would suit oily, combination skin types as well. Both the Aloe Gel và Bamboo Gel are very cost-effective & are equally soothing & effective. Only the Aloe Gel comes in both tube và tub versions, whereas the Bamboo Gel comes only as a tub which may be bulky & inconvenient lớn use.

3. The Face Shop White Seed Blanclouding White Moisture Cream


The Face Shop White Seed Range is quite popular for its effectiveness. This moisture cream is targeted towards dull skin khổng lồ brighten up the complexion. It claims to be formulated with unique ingredients White Lupin Seed & White Daisy Flower Extract. The moisture cream is also miễn phí from the 7 additives; parabens, tar colorant, animal-sourced ingredients, mineral oil, talc, polyacrylamide, và paraffin.

So let me come straight to lớn the point, I did not lượt thích this cream. The main reason, this caused me breakouts which I didn’t expect at all. The White Moisture Cream has a bouncy, rubbery, jelly kind of gel-cream texture which is similar lớn the Klairs Vitamin E Mask. It spreads & absorbs into lớn the skin fairly well and leaves the skin dewy. The cream is nicely moisturizing và hence leaves the skin supple và healthy when used as a night cream. For daytime use, I felt the cream to lớn be slightly greasy for my oily skin. I’m still skeptical about its brightening clayên as I didn’t see much difference in that area. The scent was nice và pleasing with a touch of floral notes.

Overall, this is a kind of a rich moisturizing cream that is intensely moisturizing & would suit someone with dry or very dry non-acne prone skin. I don’t think this cream does anything apart from moisturizing. So I would skip it.

4. The Face Shop Cherry Blossom Daily Perfumed Hvà Cream


I never used khổng lồ use separate hand creams before. The only h& cream I have tried so far is the Yves Rocher Arnica Hvà Cream. I’ll have to lớn say that it was a pretty good Hand Cream. I bought The Face Shop Hand Cream sometime ago, when I felt that my hands too needs some special treatment as they were becoming more drier & rougher due to the weather.

I chose the variant, Cherry Blossom. This has a nice cherry và floral scent khổng lồ it. It’s not overwhelming, just a subtle soft fragrance that you can smell on your hands for about an hour or so. I liked this scent. The hand cream is milky White in color and has a medium-thichồng gel-cream consistency. It blends và absorbs quickly, within seconds of application and it immediately leaves my hands soft, nourished, & moisturized. All this without any oily or greasy or slippery residue. I could easily carry on with my other works lượt thích before due lớn its lightweight, non-greasy formula. The hvà cream, however, is not very moisturizing. It kept my hands supple for about 2-3 hours max. & I had the need to reapply it sooner, otherwise, my hands become dry as they were before. Re-application is needed when hands are washed too.

I bởi vì not know what I am expecting, but since this has a non-oily formula, I think the moisturizing effect wasn’t great. On the other side, rich creams immensely moisturize my hands but leave sầu some oily or slippery residue behind which I hate. So my tìm kiếm for the perfect hvà cream still continues.

Overall I would say I liked this cream’s lightweight feel và non-greasy formula. This is a perfect hvà cream for the summer season and for someone with normal skin. But if you are having very dry skin, this would not satisfy your hand’s moisture requirement.

5. The Face Shop Sheet Masks


I’ve sầu tried 3 sheet masks from The Face Shop – Two from the Real Nature Range and One from The Solution Range.

The Face Shop Real Nature Sheet Mask: These sheet masks are made of soft fabric & are quite thiông chồng compared to lớn The Solution Range. These vày have a chemical fragrance but it is mild and does not intensify và irritate my nose. Coming to lớn its effectiveness;

The Face Shop The Solution Brightening Sheet Mask: These are ultra-thin và feathery light on the skin which sida in better performance. This variant has a mild floral fragrance. This mask instantly brightened up my skin with a subtle glow. It also made my skin velvety soft lớn touch. This mask is neither very moisturizing nor very drying và is great for someone with oily skin.

Sheets masks work differently for each one of them. I had both Hits và Misses in their Sheet Masks. These are pretty affordable so I would still recommkết thúc trying them if you are into lớn serious sheet masking.

6. The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Aloe Nose Strip


I always have sầu blackheads on my nose area và hence I need to lớn regularly get rid of them using some technique. Off late, I find nose strips to be an easier và effective means to remove sầu blackheads. So I got this one from The Face Shop. This is also available as a paông chồng of 7.

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Aloe Nose Strip is a white-colored nose patch that is glued khổng lồ a cellophane sheet. The instructions on how to lớn use it are mentioned, so it’s pretty easy if you follow the instructions. I used the one-time nose patch after cleansing my nose area. I removed the glued nose patch & placed it on my damp nose. The patch adheres well và is big enough to cover my nose area, except for the tip & inner corner of my nose. So it doesn’t remove those blackheads on the tip and inner corner. After 10 mins or so, I removed the strip. The pain was minimal và bearable, like removing a peel-off mask. The result was great, the patch had beautifully removed all my blackheads & whiteheads leaving my nose cleaner và smoother. There was no sticky residue, I could just vì chưng away by rinsing with plain water.

Overall, this works as claimed. It’s super easy khổng lồ use và a quick solution khổng lồ get rid of blackheads. I didn’t face any redness or irritation at all. I only wish the patch covered my nose tip and inner corners too.

7. The Face Shop CC Cushion Compacts


This isn’t actually a review of the products, but just my impression on The Face Shop Cushions. I got these one-time samples in the ‘The Face Shop Experience Kit‘ which was available as a part of their initial launch. I got the shade V203 Natural Beige which is supposedly the darkest shade launched in India và guess what this is too light even on my medium fair skin tone. So think about medium, dusky và deeper skin tones. Above that, since it contains higher SPF, it leaves a Trắng cast that looks too over the top on me. I wonder if this is what they điện thoại tư vấn brightening. Totally not recommended for Indian Skin.

Anyway moving on khổng lồ its application, since I didn’t get the cushion compacts, I just applied it using my RT Miracle Sponge. I know cushions are there for a purpose but let me nội dung my views. The formula was creamy yet thin, hence it spread quite easily. Both of the CC Creams felt light on the skin & provided light lớn medium coverage. They evened out the skin tone but did not cover acne marks and spots. The finish of both the cushions is on the dewy glowing side. The intense cover cushion gives a lesser dewy skin và is less hydrating than the Ultra Moist. Staying Power? I didn’t get to test it as I couldn’t roam around lượt thích a ghost with a ‘white’ foundation.

Concluding, I feel unless you have a very fair & pale skin tone, don’t even bother about these cushions. I am not going to lớn put out a rating for these as I haven’t tried them long enough khổng lồ give sầu a proper rating.

8. The Face Shop Dr.Belmeur Spot Patch Kit


I bought this khổng lồ replace my all-time favorite Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patches. This Face Shop Kit had 80 patches in total và this was more economical compared lớn that. I’m glad because performance wise both are equally good.

The Face Shop Dr.Belmeur Spot Patch Kit has two types of patches (40 patches each).

One is the Spot Plaster Bvà that contains Salicylic Acid và Willow Herb which is to lớn be used on an emerging pimple khổng lồ calm it down. It is a transparent patch và much thinner than the other. This can be worn under makeup as well while it does its job of calming the acne.

The other type – Spot Hydrocolloid Band is a hydrogel type that absorbs and protects wound infections. This is best to be used on pus-filled pimples that have come khổng lồ a head. It sucks out all the bacteria struông xã deep inside the skin and flattens out the acne area. Using this leaves no scarring on small & zit pimples and negligible dot-lượt thích marks for medium-sized pimples. These patches are lớn be applied on cleansed skin, before applying anything else (say toner or moisturizer). I usually leave sầu it on for at least 12 hours or until I see the patch filled with White pus.

Overall, these are super handy & a must-have sầu for acne-prone skin types. Both patches are fragrance-miễn phí as well.

9. The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam


This range of Herb Day Cleansing Foam is quite popular because of its affordable price và availability of different variants suitable for various skin types. The Lemon variant is the most popular one amuốn the other variants which includes Aloe, Peach, Mung Bean, and Acerola.

The Face Shop Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam in Lemon is a pearly White creamy cleanser that foams up really well. It has got a refreshing citrus fragrance that awakens tired skin. The cleanser gives a squeaky clean skin và brightens up the skin like nobody’s business. I’ve used various brightening face washes, but this one is the most brightening one of all. It removes dullness and revives lifeless looking skin. This particular variant is suitable for oily skin as it can be a bit drying for other skin types.

Overall, for the price point and long-lasting quantity, this easily makes the cut for being one of the best affordable face washes for oily skin. This cleansing foam is sulfate và paraben-không lấy phí as well.

10. The Face Shop Rice Creamide Moisturizing Emulsion


The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisturizing Emulsion claims khổng lồ brighten as well as protect the skin barrier. Typically this emulsion replaces a moisturizer, but depending on your preference you can use it with other products in your 10 Step Korean Skincare Routine. With this sản phẩm, I prefer to lớn use a cleanser, toner, và then this emulsion. Because this emulsion by itself is insanely moisturizing that if I apply more products, my skin tends lớn become greasy. I also suggest using just a tiny bit of this sản phẩm khổng lồ avoid over-moisturizing. This is a heavy-duty moisturizer, despite its light lotion-lượt thích texture. It gives a tacky feeling và takes time khổng lồ get absorbed completely. The emulsion has a mild scent lớn it, that’s totally non-bothering.

On the good side, The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisturizing Emulsion has greatly helped khổng lồ calm my skin sensitivities and irritations và I can vouch for its skin-soothing abilities. It reduced my breakouts noticeably. However there is one major nhỏ with this product, it kind of makes my skin look dull and dark whilst this sản phẩm is on my skin. That’s why I never use this in my AM routine. It doesn’t brighten the skin as claimed, rather it does the reverse.

Although I liked how it reduced my skin irritations, I didn’t lượt thích its feel on my skin. It is not a comfortable product that feels light on the skin. Overall, I don’t think it’s a sản phẩm that’s worth trying. The packaging is also flawed with its pinhole dispenser where it takes forever khổng lồ dispense the hàng hóa out once the bottle is half empty.

My Final Thoughts on The Face Shop

Like every other br&, I have both hits & misses on The Face Shop Products. I liked their Bamboo Gel a lot among mỏi all. I haven’t explored much of their popular products lượt thích their Chia Seed Range, Rice Water Bright Cleansing Oil, Jeju Volcanic Range, I have sầu keen interest on their sensitive sầu skin friendly Dr.Belmeur Range. For me, when it comes lớn korean skin care products, my first preference is from the brand Dear Klairs Products(Love their supple preparation toner) followed by Cosrx & then the Innisfree Products. Sadly The Face Shop is not my most favourite brands, although I wish to lớn try one or two products in the future.
