REVIEW: THEFACESHOP MasCream Sheet Masks

img_1542

I am back again to do a review on face masks from THEFACESHOP yet again. I currently have many things to review at the moment and I always prefer to review products separately so that I am able to go more in depth without creating such a long post.

So for today, I am reviewing THEFACESHOP’s MasCream sheet mask which comes in 4 different formulas that aim to hydrate, brighten, tighten, and revitalise the skin. So far, I have only tried the hydration and moisture masks.

Price: $5 each

Moisture Hydration

“First mask sheet with cream that feels like applying a whole jar of cream. The dense microfiber rich in cream adheres closely to the skin, providing soothing comfort. Delivers rich moisture to dry and flaky skin with a cream containing hyaluronic acid and elderflower.”

Out of the two, I tried this mask first and despite the name of the mask, I was very surprised by how creamy the sheet mask actually was. This mask is super moisturising and works very well at assisting those with dry or dull skin. This also had a nice milky, shea butter type of scent.

Ingredients: Water/Eau, Propanediol, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer,  Penthenol, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated castor oil, Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acryltae crosspolumer, Glycerin, Potassium hydroxide.Dipotassium glycrrhizate, Allantoin, Sambucus nigra flower water, Caprylhydroxamic acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, 1,2-hexanddiol, Phaseolus radiatus seed extract, Sodium hyaluronate, Phenoxyeethanol, Beta-glucan, Citric acid, Potassium sorbate, Sodium benzoate, Betula platyphylla japonica bark extract, Rumex crispus root extract,  Parfum/Fragrance

Brightening

“The dense microfiber rich in cream adheres closely to the skin, providing soothing comfort. Improves dull complexion with a brightening cream containing black pearl and argan oil”

I must say, I did not enjoy using this sheet mask as much as the previous one. I found this sheet mask to be just as hydrating and creamy as the previous one, however, this mask had a more unappealing scent which I was not a fan of.

Not to say that this mask is bad, I’m just very sensitive to scents and I am quite picky when it comes to fragrances.

Ingredients: Water/Eau, Propenidiol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Niacinamide, Cyclopentasiloxane, Panthenol, Tri-C14-15 Alkyl Citrate, C14-22 Alcohols, Glycerin, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Hydrogenated Lecithin. Cyclohexasiloxane, PEG-32, Canola Oil, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside,  Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil. Propylene Glycol, Hydrogenated Phosphatidylcholine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Dimethiconol, Caprylhydroxamic Acid. Potassium Hydroxide. Glyceryl Polymethacrylate. Disodium EDTA, Sodium Polyacrylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolised Pearl. Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol. Potassium Sorbateeethylhexylglycerin, Sorbic Acid, Parfum/Fragrance

This sheet mask is VERY creamy as the name suggests. It does an amazing job at moisturising and soothing dull and dry skin. This mask also fits well on my face which is always a plus for me as most masks I have tried are quite large for me.

 

So overall, I really liked using this mask due to the abundance of cream. It made my skin feel very soft and smooth and I would definitely consider repurchasing this.

Pros:

  • Very moisturising
  • Nice scent
  • Perfect for those who have dry skin

 

Cons:

  • Pricey

REVIEW: THEFACESHOP Character Mask

On my birthday, my boyfriend had surprised me with various presents which also included 12 sheet masks and 2/12 of these were the character masks by THEFACESHOP. I have wanted to try these for so long mainly because of the fun print. I’m not sure what the exact price is but I believe it’s between $3-$4 AUD each.

img_1540

THEFACESHOP has many different types of character masks but for now i’m only trying the puppy and panda mask. For those who aren’t aware, these sheet masks also come with other designs such as a fox, sheep, dragon, puppy, panda and tiger.

The main ingredients of each mask consists of water, humectants (Propanediol, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin), emollients (PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer), some of which also have emulsifying or solvent properties, Panthenol (a great skincare ingredient which has humectant properties, but also can help to improve skin’s barrier function and helping skin repair itself), emulsifiers (Betaine), thickeners (Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer).

This is the puppy sheet mask. Its main purpose is to brighten the skin. This was the first out of the two that I tried and I gotta say I really enjoyed using this due to its fun design. It just really makes that step of your skincare routine more fun.

I think it’s a very moisturising mask and does a fair job at brightening my skin.

As for the Panda mask, the purpose of this is more towards moisturising and hydrating the skin.

I really like that these masks do not leave a sticky feeling on your skin as compared to previous masks I have tried. The smell of this masks consists of the same fruity scent found in the puppy mask I previously tried. The mask lives up to its claims as it left my skin feeling moisturised and soft.

Overall, I very much enjoyed using these character masks. Most would expect skincare products such as these to simply produce an attractive aesthetic while lacking in functionality. However, from my personal experience, THEFACESHOP’s character masks work just as well as they look.

My most favourite part of this mask is the strong fruity smell. If you are one who is sensitive to scents, I don’t suggest using this mask. They also fit well on my face which is a large deal for me as sheet masks usually tend to be quite large on my small face. If you are looking for a sheet mask that is both effective as well as enjoyable to use, I highly recommend this! However, if you are limited to a certain budget, this may not be the best option as they do retail for around $3-$4 AUD each.

Pros:

  • Fun to use
  • Attractive scent
  • Moisturises and brightens skin

Cons:

  • Not as affordable

REVIEW: THEFACESHOP Blemish Zero Bubble Foam Cleanser

IMG_1466.jpg

It is only now that I realised I have reviewed quite a selection of products from THEFACESHOP. If any of you are curious as to why, it is because my brother usually buys his skincare products from there and it is either passed on to me or I borrow them from time to time.

For today, I will be talking about their Blemish Zero Bubble Foam Cleanser. Unfortunately, as I was not the one who purchased this and due to the lack of information on their English website, I have no idea how much this is.

img_1467

Key Claims:

  • Gentle on the skin
  • Cleanses deep within the pores
  • Removes the root of bacteria that creates skin trouble
  • Clears sebum that blocks old skin cells and pores

The cleanser is packaged in a 150ml pump bottle which is new for me as most cleansers I have used in the past are usually in a squeeze bottle. However, 150ml is quite a decent size.

This cleanser is said to maintain the skin’s pH and minimises irritation do to its “auto foaming” rub-free method. This cleanser also claims to work best for adults with acne skin.

img_1468

Unfortunately, everything on the back of the product is written in Korean so I have no idea what it says. The product was also plastic wrapped and did not come with a box, so I am unaware of the ingredients list.

However the website states that this cleanser does not contain alcohol or oil and no animal ingredients.

img_0580

My final thoughts on this cleanser leans more on the positive side. I found this cleanser to feel very light on the face and it is very easy to massage onto the skin. This left my skin feeling clean but not too squeaky clean like other cleansers, however I did find this to leave the skin feeling a little dry after drying much like most cleansers out there but it is not too bad. Nothing a little toner and moisturiser won’t fix. It also does not contain much of a smell which is good for those who are sensitive to scents.

Although I think this is a pretty good cleanser, I think i’d just stick to my Etude House cleanser.

Pros:

  • Easy to massage
  • No scent
  • Light

Cons:

  • A little drying

 

Overall rating: 3/5

 

REVIEW: THEFACESHOP White Seed Brightening Toner

I’m back again to review another product from THEFACESHOP’s White Seed Line. It is their brightening toner.

I’m just gonna jump straight into the review!

img_0680

Just like their White Seed Brightening Serum, I really love the packaging. It’s very sleek and crisp. However, I do wish that I am able to see how much product is left inside. The product comes inside a 145ml pump bottle which I think is quite a good size for a toner.

img_0682

I wasn’t able to take a picture of the actual product on my skin but I will describe it. It’s a very runny, milky type of liquid.

I pump some onto a cotton round and gently swipe it on my face. I think it feels very moisturising and cooling. It also smells incredible and I really love it. It really does leave my skin looking brighter and fixes the dullness in my skin. I would very much consider repurchasing this as I think it is worth the money.

Pros:

  • Very nice smell
  • Beautiful packaging
  • Moisturising
  • Brightens skin

Cons:

  • Quite pricey

 

Overall rating: 4/5

REVIEW: THEFACESHOP Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam

I am back with another product from THEFACESHOP. Today i’ll be reviewing their Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam in Aloe. I actually purchased this for my brother but I decided to also give it a try for review purposes.

Price: AUD $9

img_0321

This foam wash is said to contain aloe vera extract and nine kinds of herbs extracts which apparently help in removing build up impurities and excess sebum. This is also suitable for all skin types.

The foam wash comes in a 170ml squeeze tube which is a decent size.

img_0322

What I really enjoy about this product is how easily you can massage it onto the skin. It glides across the skin very smoothly. It also has a fresh scent which is nice on the nose. My most favourite part about this is that it doesn’t leave the skin feeling very dry unlike some other cleansers I have tried in the past. It’s quite affordable so I recommend this for those looking for an inexpensive cleansing foam.

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Doesn’t leave the face feeling dry
  • Fresh scent
  • Massages well into skin
  • Suitable for all skin types

Cons:

So far there are none. However I wouldn’t go as far as to say this is a groundbreaking skincare product.

Overall rating: 4/5

REVIEW: THEFACESHOP Herb Day Cleansing Tissue

I haven’t tried much makeup wipes as I always preferred using cleansing oils and foams. They always left my face feeling squeaky clean. However, there are just those moments when you get home after a very long day and you’re feeling so exhausted, lacking the energy to do a full double cleanse in the bathroom. Luckily, my brother received the Herb Day Cleansing Tissue as a freebie from THEFACESHOP, who then passed it on to me.

img_2079

This makeup wipe is said to be a soft and clean tissue for cleansing, containing rosemary extracts and herb clean complex, washing off thick makeup. It is also suitable for all skin types.

This pack comes with 20 facial wipes which is a decent amount. However, it may cost a lot in the long run if one decides to frequently purchase this.

The packaging is pretty standard but it is quite nice to look at. The green shade gives a more clean and fresh feeling which is suitable for the product itself.

I’m not too familiar with the ingredients as everything is written in Korean.

img_2080

The tissues inside are very soft and don’t feel harsh on the skin. It does a very good job removing makeup, even waterproof products. The tissue itself has just the right amount of moisture and isn’t soaking to the point of making a mess. Also has a nice fresh scent. I usually just use one side to wipe my whole face and use the other side to run over it a second time and it really does leave my face feeling clean. It also doesn’t leave the face feeling dry. I think this is a good easy-to-use product for those lazy nights where you just really don’t have the energy to do your complete skincare routine. However, I just wish there was more inside.

Pros:

  • Fresh scent
  • Cleans face effectively
  • Doesn’t leave the skin dry
  • Removes makeup well including waterproof products

Cons:

  • Limited quantity

 

Overall rating: 4/5

REVIEW: THEFACESHOP White Seed Brightening Serum

Hello everybody! I’m back again with another review of yet another Korean skincare product and it is THEFACESHOP’s Brightening Serum from their White Seed line. Unfortunately, I’m not 100% what the price is as this was given to me by my brother.

2

Description: “This smooth, brightening serum effectively penetrates into skin, giving it a boost of radiance and brightness”

It is said that this product contains brightening ingredients such as ‘White Lupin Seed’, which contains a natural brightening substance and ‘White Daisy Flower’ extract, which helps reducing dullness.

Size: 50ml

I was pretty excited to try this considering this was one of the first few skincare facial products I have ever tried from THEFACESHOP. I really like the sleek pearl kind of packaging. It makes the product look more high end. Although, I wished it was possible to see inside so that i’m able to know how much is left for use.

img_0686

img_1142

The texture of this product feels very light and milky which is quite different from other serums I have tried which usually have a very thin and runny consistency. It also comes with a very, very lovely scent which smells a little like flowers. It absorbs quite nicely on the skin and leaves it with a nice, bright, glow without leaving any stickiness behind. Overall, i’d say I really like and enjoy using this product and I hope to try the other products from the White Seed line.

Pros:

  • Absorbs nicely onto the skin
  • Nice smell
  • Attractive packaging
  • Generous amount of product

Cons:

  • Unable to see how much product is inside.
