[BEAUTY] Review: The Therapy Vegan Skincare by THE FACE SHOP 

Going vegan or having a plant-based diet has been a rising trend in the recent years, and now we see more and more vegan movements shifting to include the fashion and beauty scene.

THE FACE SHOP The Therapy Vegan Skincare

Taking the pledge to create cruelty-free vegan beauty that uses 100% plant-based ingredients and extracts, THE FACE SHOP has recently introduced The Therapy Vegan skincare series comprising of the blending toner and blending serum so far. 

Look at the minimalist biodegradable packaging - so pretty!

The duo is not only environmental-friendly, but is  also made from ingredients which are procured ethically and have never been tested on animals throughout the process, from production to purchase.

Another noteworthy point on THE FACE SHOP’s commitment towards vegan beauty is the vegan certification it obtains from the Korean Vegan Certification Union.

What does 100% certified vegan formula mean?
❤ Non-toxic
❤ No harsh chemical
❤ Paraben / alcohol free
❤ No animal testing
❤ No artificial colors
❤ No artificial fragrance
❤ Free from 24 kinds of harmful additives / ingredients 

Why vegan-friendly skincare?

What makes me interested in vegan-friendly skincare is similar to how I start practising clean eating. The "food" that I feed my skin with now contains more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to help repair and hydrate the skin, while doing good to nature. Who doesn’t love such good guilt-free pampering session that results in gorgeous, glowing skin?

THE FACE SHOP The Therapy Vegan series features the unique combination of their all-time signature Eco-green Switzerland Formula and Marche Anti-aging Formula.

From the Swiss Alps, Thyme Extract is cultivated with eco-clean water to revitalise and moisturise skin, while the Edelweiss Extract is cultivated in eco-green nature to increase moisturization and resilience while soothing skin.

For the anti-aging benefits, the Marche Anti-aging Formula uses bay leaves, calendula and olive for purifying, healing, soothing and anti-aging benefits.

The Therapy Vegan Blending Toner (180ml)

I have been using THE FACE SHOP The Therapy First Serum since 2016 and fallen in love with it since then. My next step after the First Serum is this vegan Blending Toner that contains 3 essential oils (sandalwood, avocado, and Palmarosa) and Marche Anti-aging Formula which form a hydrating shield on skin surface to prevent the evaporation of moisture. 

As the formula is made of oil drops that sparkle like crystal particles, stabilised by the fluid gel made of natural polysaccharides for fast absorption, it is important to shake the bottle well before use. 

Let the unique concoction mix well and seal the skin with moisture. The result? It leaves my skin feeling light and moisturized!

If you need an all-in-one care for maximum hydration, you can’t go wrong with the Blending Toner. 

How to use:
1. After washing your face, take an appropriate amount of the contents in the first step of skincare and absorb it lightly into your face.
2. When using it on a cotton pad, it helps to cleanse your skin and make your skin bright.

The Therapy Vegan Blending Cream (60ml)

And the perfect pair of the Blending Toner is of course the Blending Cream. Similar to the previous The Therapy Booster and Moisture Blending Formula Cream I used, it features The Therapy Cream’s signature two-layer formula: 

❤ Top layer: Oil gel cream containing more than 35% rich moisturizer;
❤ Bottom layer: Hydrating cream containing naturally-derived oils and ceramide that help hydrate skin and fortify skin barriers.

When oil gel cream and hydrating cream are blended using the spatula, the formula develops an airy texture to be applied more softly.

Upon application, it feels like an ultra lightweight gel cream that melts into the skin and seals the skin with moisture. It is proven to improve skin elasticity in just 2 weeks of use. 

How to use:
Blend the two layers (Oil and cream) for 10 seconds, then apply gently on the skin as the last step of skincare.

Overall, THE FACE SHOP’s concept of clean beauty has great potentials of growth. 
Looking forward to the up and coming beauty products under its Vegan Line!

THE FACE SHOP The Therapy Vegan skincare is available at 
all THE FACE SHOP stores and various online platforms now.

[REVIEW] Lucca Vudor Comfort Shoes - Handcrafted in Italian Traditional Method!

When it comes to shopping for shoes, I always emphasise on comfort and durability over style and price point. I am sure we have all experienced getting that cheap, beautiful pair of heels but end up causing injury and blisters on our feet. In a long run, such footwear even affects our foot health, posture and overall wellbeing. 

As my current job requires me to run around clients’ places on a daily basis, I realise a pair of shoes can make a huge difference in my day-to-day lifestyle and therefore I am more willing to invest in a good pair of footwear. 

So I stumble upon Lucca Vudor - a luxury shoe brand based in Singapore, Malaysia and Australia - and I am totally sold on the wide range of luxurious shoes handcrafted in Italian traditional method. The ladies’ shoes here are specially engineered for comfort without sacrificing an ounce of style. 

Flats - Faizah 366B-3 @ SGD 119.90

While Lucca Vudor offers various styles such as heels, sandals, boots, etc, my favourite pick is this classic pair of beige-apricot flats for my everyday work purposes. The design and colour combination allows it to be a versatile pair of comfort shoes that can be worn all day long, be it for business during the day or for play at night.

Lucca Vudor offers a good balance of comfort and style. Some of the noteworthy points that I really like about this pair of flats include the following.

❤ The shoe (upper, lining and insole) is made of lightweight, finely grained lambskin leather - super soft and comfortable. It snuggles the feet well and moulds to the shape of my feet faster too.

❤ It features the signature Lucca Vudor Pressure Relieving Sole, plus the insole padded with extra cushion for better comfort and reduced pain after prolonged walking. No more sore and tired feet at the end of the day!

❤ Supportive back - no more injury and blisters at the back of the ankle
❤ Widened toe box - to prevent tightness around the feet 
❤ Well balanced shoe form - for overall comfort

Aesthetic wise, Lucca Vudor shoes never lack of timeless design and unique colour combination. As Lucca Vudor’s craftsman makes each pair by hands and painstakingly colors each pair of shoes, every pair of shoes is a piece of art! 

Verdict:
All in all, I am happy with my recent purchase from Lucca Vudor. After wearing it for a week now,  I am pretty satisfied with the level of comfort and versatility that Lucca Vudor shoes offer. No more soreness on the feet even after a long day!
