I stopped by The Face Shop on my commute home today with the intention of just checking out the store and selection but ended up leaving with quite a bit of stuff! Usually, I prefer to purchase skincare items online, but there is definitely something to be said about being able to see and touch items in person!
Overall, I’m a big fan of the store! The sales girl was super friendly and knowledgeable. There are at least 3 other Asian Beauty stores in the plaza that this The Face Shop is located in, and the service tends to be a bit hit, miss, or distant. I took my time, testing some fan favorites I haven’t yet tried, like the Mango Seed Face Butter (really lovely texture and not too rich!), some newer items like the Damying Bamboo gel (surprisingly moisturizing! I like it better than aloe gels I’ve used), and the trendy fun butane sunscreen, which I ended up taking home with me!
Here’s the entire haul. The Blanclouding set, Green Tea sheet mask, and clean skin set I got for free! They’re so generous with samples!

Blanclouding & White Seed Deluxe Kit
This consists of five different items and ENGLISH INGREDIENTS are included for all of them! Actually, I think everything I received had English ingredients. Pretty cool.
- White Moisture Cream
- White Moisture Serum
- White Seed Real Whitening Toner
- White Seed Real Whitening Lotion
- White Seed Exfoliating Foam Cleanser
Clean Face Special Gift Set
The sales girl said this set is for oily skin, which I don’t have, but she didn’t have a gift set for dry skin so she gave it to me anyways. I may gift this to one of my oily skinned friends.
Mini Pet Floral Hand Cream
I’ve purchased these before to give away as presents but have never actually had one for myself. Now, I have my very own adorable pink kitten hand cream! Plus, this was on sale for $3.
Real Nature Masks X 3 Natural
I asked the sales girl which sheet masks she liked, and she recommended the rice one, for brightening up skin on days where you just can’t get enough sleep, and the mung bean one for soothing congested skin. I bought those two and she threw in the green tea one, just for fun!
Update: tried the Mung Bean one yesterday and I’m not in love with it. The fragrance is too strong for my taste. I also think Evercos may have ruined me for other masks because their material is just so soft and pliable.
Sun Eco Ice Air Puff Sun SPF50+ PA+++
So this is the item I’m super excited about! It contains butane and is part of a trend sometimes referred to as cooling gas foundations.
Regardless, this is primarily a sunscreen although it provides a small amount of coverage. Full review to come but I do love the cooling sensation!
