Trying TheFaceShop

Wednesday August 26, 2015   

Wearing in the video:

I was familiar with THEFACESHOP brand through online shops and beauty reviews but I don’t recall ever using any of their products until now. I stumbled upon a THEFACESHOP while in Ottawa and bought up a ton of things! Actually, so much that I’m not going to list everything individually.

I’m currently avoiding oils and collagen in any long term skincare products so I skipped many of their skin care sets. Almost everything has collagen in it right now.

I picked up their Blemish Zero products and a ton of face masks. The Blemish Zero looked a lot like the Clinique Acne line I’ve used for years but when comparing the ingredients THEFACESHOP has aloe and less ingredients including peppermint extract which can be irritating to skin.

The Volume My Lips glosses are my favorites. They last and last and don’t feel tacky at all. I was so impressed with the fuchsia one that I went back to buy the rest of them!

The Aqua Tint Jelly is gorgeous but the taste is a bit off-putting. It’s very artificial like the taste of plastic. The Milky Moisture Tint and the Marker Aqua Tint both had artificial tastes as well. The color is excellent though.


Lightning Reviews!

Artist Touch Lipstick OR201 – Love it! Lasts, moisturizing, creamy, color payoff!

Artist Touch Shadow 02 Emerald City – Pretty, subtle, soft, a bit powdery and low pigments.

Milky Moisture Tint 03 Apple Red – Pretty! Tastes terrible until 100% dry.

My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint – Pretty, deep red tiny that lasts. Tastes artificial u til dry.

You Make Me Glam Volume My Lips – Like these a lot especially fuchsia and glitter clear. Really makes lips look fuller.

Aqua Proof Marker Tint 02 Pink – Love this for natural tint when outdoors and minimal makeup.

Real Nature Masks – Liked these a lot! All the ones I tried.

Mango Seed Lip Balm – Nice! Like to apply this before lipsticks.

Clean Face Sebum Control Soothing Mask Sheet – Yeah, like it!

Milk Plus Lotion – Good lotion but smells like baby powder (ugh.)

Coral Cushion Blusher 02 Coral – Meh. A bit too shimmery and can highlight pores.

Lovely Moisturizer Mango Body Lotion – Eh, mango toothpaste-like scent. Loved at first but got tired of scent. Absorbs nice and clean though.

Clean Face Anti-Imperfections Patches – Nah, didn’t do much.

Hydro Gel Mask Sheet Vita E – Difficult to use and sliding everywhere, no skin difference.

Cream Shimmer Eyeshadow – Pointless best describes this product.

    Thanks for your review and for the cute video Jenny :D!

    I used to love THEFACESHOP but then I realized that there are parabens in a lot of their products, especially the cheaper, more affordable ones. I do like a lot of their masks, though. And there was a highlighter they used to carry that I loved but it’s discontinued now :(

    There’s a THEFACESHOP in Virginia and in Maryland if you’re looking for a closer location :)! There’s also a Tony Moly and Amore (Laniege/IOPE) in Virginia too if you’re looking for more Korean products.

      Yeah it was hard to even avoid alcohol and caster oil in their stuff. Yeah actually the VA one is about an hour away, I was really surprised when I googled it. I didn’t know there was a Tony Moly and Amore. I’ll have to google. Hopefully they’re near thefaceshop so I could hit them all in 1 trip because TRAFFIC. I have a MISSHA counter near me thankfully b/c it’s my holy grail bb cream. Their masks are pretty good too :)

    Love the video! I think the blush and lip gloss you wore in the video are really pretty! <3

    Love your fun video and your lightning reviews so much! The coral lip cannot be more flattering! I’ve never used their make up products, but I quite like their masks. My favorite is their rice face mask, which is the only mask I’ve used where I’ve actually seen an instant brightening effect after 20 minutes or so (didn’t notice anything with the other masks, although most are good for providing the usual hydration). I received samples from their chia seed line which surprised me in a good way so I think I want to go back to buy the full sized lotion! I’m also interested in trying their chia seed sebum control lotion, which many claimed help keep their make up on (?) Anyway, thank you for the video and I hope you can make more! *o*

      Thank you! Yeah the salesperson was really big on the chia line stuff so it seems really popular. I actually used the rice mask the other night but the blueberry one has been my favorite because I need moisture right now :)

    Your videos always leave me with a happy vibe! They’re so cute and I loved seeing you doing your makeup.
    I got curious about the facemasks… Up until now I tried ones from Innisfree and Skin79 and got addicted to them.
