Review: THE FACE SHOP 2018 New Beauty Products

Merry Christmas! ❤ The best thing about Christmas is to be showered with tonnes of surprises and lovely gifts. One of the best gift packs I receive this Christmas is from THE FACE SHOP Malaysia, because it gives me a preview of the new arrivals that will be available in the outlets nationwide and e-store from January 2018 onwards.

Since my year end is always packed with parties, celebrations and travelling, the skincare and hair products arrive just at the nick of time to pamper my tired skin and make me look great! Here are 5 new products that THE FACE SHOP is bringing to us in the brand new year:

❤ Anti-darkening Cushion Foundation (3 shades)
❤ Bubble Bubble Cleansing Foam (3 types)
❤ Yehwadam Revitalizing Moisturizing Sleeping Pack
❤ White Seed Renewal Spotlight Radiance Cream (already available in-store now)
❤ Stylist Easy + Quick Hair Color Treatment (4 colors)


Anti-darkening Cushion Foundation SPF50+ PA+++ (15g)

Finally, this long-awaited product is here in Malaysia! THE FACE SHOP has upgraded the cushion foundation formula to something that brightens up the complexion instantly, stays fresh on skin and does not turn dark even after a long day.

I will share you my detailed review of this product in an upcoming blog post, so stay tuned at this space :)



Bubble Bubble Cleansing Foam (100ml)

Next, let's move on to the skincare goodies. This is the new moisture-rich cleansing foam line by THE FACE SHOP, specially catered for young skin (Male and female aged 20s), consisting of 3 variants: 

Bubble Bubble Moisturizing Foaming Cleanser
❤ Ultra-hydrating formula, rich in glycerin and prevent dryness
❤ Rich Pu-Erh Tea extract content helps boosting hydration, blood circulation, radiance, etc
❤ Recommended for oily / acne skin (both face and body)

I am currently using the Moisturizing Foaming Cleanser 

Bubble Bubble Mild Foaming Cleanser
❤ Skin-friendly pH level minimises irritation  
❤ Rich White Tea extract content helps in detoxification, quick repair and recovery of damaged skin
❤ Recommended for sunburn and sensitive skin

Bubble Bubble Deep Foaming Cleanser
❤ More dense and abundant bubble foam than average cleansing foam for deep cleansing
❤ Black Tea Extract formula removes impurities deep inside pores  
❤ Recommended for oily and dull skin 

How To Use: 
1. Use sufficient product with THE FACE SHOP Creamy Bubble Foam Maker to lather well.
2. Cleanse face in circular motion.
3. Use THE FACE SHOP Sea Sponge / Konjac Jelly to wash away the rich foam.

Texture: ★★★★☆ 

Generally this series lathers very well -- A tiny amount is sufficient to create lots of bubble foam -- except for the mild foaming cleanser that does not have much bubbles so that it does not irritate the skin.

Feel: ★★★ 

The Moisturising Foaming Cleanser leaves my skin refreshed, and clear from oil / impurities after use. Although it gives a slightly unpleasant tightness, my skin feels soft and smooth again after applying toner, moisturizer, cream etc.

Fragrance: ★★★★☆ 

The Moisturising Foaming Cleanser and Deep Foaming Cleanser both have citrus floral-fruity fragrance with refreshing sparking soda sensation, whereas the mild cleanser exudes soft watery floral scent that smells delicate on skin.

Overall Result: ★★★★☆ 

Overall, if you are looking for a simple cleanser with creamy texture but mild effects,
then this is for you :)

White Seed Renewal Spotlight Radiance Cream (50ml)

After cleansing, surely we would need our toner, serum, moisturiser and sun care. For the last step of skincare, I found this new addition to the popular White Seed brightening range: Spotlight Creama daily tone-up/moisturising cream that brightens the skin instantly, creating a natural illuminated complexion while maintaining fresh moisture to skin.

*This spotlight cream is already available in THE FACE SHOP outlets and e-store from December 2017 onwards.

This Spotlight Cream is not just a tone up cream but also a treatment cream with whitening effect. Whenever my tired skin feels dull and flaky, it is good to apply this to help smooth out the skin and provide natural radiance. 

How To Use: 
As the last step of skincare, apply an appropriate amount in areas that needs instant tone-up care such as face, neck and clavicle.
*Can also apply on hands if you drive frequently under hot sun as the arms tend to have higher chance for pigmentation

Beauty Tips: 
It is recommended to use it during the day and switch to THE FACE SHOP White Seed Blanclouding Cream as the night cream. 

Texture: ★★★★☆ 

The pinkish cream is very concentrated in terms of texture, as it is packed with the key ingredients that help in brightening:
(1) White Lupine Seed (natural whitening, anti-oxidant rich ingredient with anti-aging effects);
(2) White Daisy (Melanin inhibitor that keeps the skin complexion bright). 
   
Nevertheless, it is easily spreadable around the skin and absorbs pretty well too. 

Feel: ★★★★☆ 
Despite of the ultra creamy texture, it feels lightweight on skin as I apply a very thin layer on it.

Overall Result: ★★★★

It works very well in giving instant Brightening + Moisturizing functions, bringing out the natural glow of skin. At the same time, its fine and whitish powder appearance provides excellent coverage for blemishes too.

Personally I find it extra useful as makeup base to prep the skin before makeup, to better achieve a naturally bright and clear complexion.



Yehwadam Revitalizing Moisturizing Sleeping Pack (100ml)

Apart from the daily skincare routine, it is important to pamper our skin at least twice a week with  special care products such as this Yehwadam sleeping mask!

I have been using Yehwadam Revitalizing series for almost a year now, but Yehwadam Revitalizing Moisturizing line is something new for my skin -- its Fresh Flower Water formula brings a fresh surge of moisture on top of the traditional herbal benefits that revitalize and reenergize skin.

This Fresh Flower Water originates from 5 traditional herbs with moisturizing properties (Peony, Lotus, Safflower, Chrysanthemum, and Honeysuckle) that can restore moisture in dehydrated skin. The sleeping pack is definitely a good choice for dry skin like mine to have an overnight fresh moisture recharge deep into the skin.

How To Use: 
1. As the last step of skincare, apply over skin and leave on overnight.
2. Rinse with lukewarm water the next morning.
*Best to use 2~3 times a week
  
Texture: ★★★★☆ 

It is a highly moisturizing translucent gel that easily melts onto the skin and covers even the stubborn areas. As the sleeping pack has similar pH level as our skin, it prepares the skin well for a good rest.  

Feel: ★★★★☆ 

The sleeping pack wraps around the skin with much comfort and moisture, giving a refreshing sensation. In the next morning, after washing it off, it leaves the skin moisturised throughout the day.

Overall Verdict: ★★★★☆ 
Recommended for those who need a lightweight, refreshing gel mask for deep hydration.



Stylist Easy + Quick Hair Color Treatment (50ml)

Woots! The best thing always comes last. I am excited to hear that THE FACE SHOP just introduces a quick and easy-to-use temporary hair dye that lasts for about 7 days. The package includes a 50ml tube container + plastic gloves + box.

Especially during this party season, this is probably the best way to have attractive, vivid hair color without worrying about damaging the hair. Currently available in 4 colors:
#01 Cherry Red
#02 Lavender Blue
#03 Green Blue
#04 Rose Quartz

Perhaps you can try creating ombre hair color, or even customise your own shade by mixing different colors together:
❤ Violet Purple Mix = Cherry Red 1 : Lavender Blue 1.5
❤ Deep Purple Mix = Cherry Red 1 : Lavender Blue 2
❤ Ash Khaki Mix = Green Blue 2 : Lavender Blue 1

How to Use:
1. Wash hair with shampoo and after towel drying hair, apply appropriate amount to hair. (I used the whole tube for my hair)
2. Make sure it is evenly spread over the hair.
3. Leave on for 5 minutes if you want a natural color or 20 minutes for vivid color, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
4. (Important!) After applying the product, make sure to completely dry your hair.


Color Payoff: 

Unlike regular acid hair dyes, this temporary hair dye is alkaline and rich in Shea Butter and Macadamia Oil to protect hair. But the result may vary depending on your initial hair color. As mine is relatively dark in brown tone, the Green Blue color I tried is only visible on part of my hair which was bleached in the past. 

Nevertheless, I am happy with the bright, striking streaks of green blue tone on my hair now :)  

Fragrance: 
Unlike the normal hair dye, it is odourless (no ammonia stench!) and
does not cause any tingling sensation on the scalp / skin.


All the products above are available at all THE FACE SHOP outlets nationwide and THE FACE SHOP online store.
