The Face Shop ME:EX Mini Pet Hand Cream in White Floral and Sweet Fruits

I’ll be doing a whole bunch of posts that I’ve been putting off and this is the first one:

The Face Shop ME:EX Mini Pet Hand Cream in White Floral and Sweet Fruits! 

Phew, quite a mouthful eh?

Anyway, I’ve been putting this off since… last year?

And I finally decided I’d get down to it after my mum bought a SECOND batch of these hand creams.

She got me the sweet fruits one on top of the white floral one I asked for because she thought it smelled nice in the store.

How it looks like on the inside…  

As you can see, I’ve used up half of my old container already! I really love the floral scent!

Actually, I’m not really a big fan of floral scents, but this is so sweet and musky and smells of all things good…

And in contrast, the sweet fruits one disappointed greatly. It smelled like an air freshener- fake and overly sweet and cloying, and I didn’t like it one bit 😦

Rubbing all the goodness in~

The hand cream absorbs quickly and is not too oily, but it is not a very heavy moisturising one. But at least it doesn’t wash off with water!

 If you have extremely dry hands, I’d suggest you find one recommended by dermatologists, something from the clinic because over-the-counter products will NEVER penetrate your inner skin layer, no matter what all the adverts say.

Because if they do, it will require a doctor’s slip. If it could slip past your skin layer, it harbours the risk of being used for terrorist attacks and whatnot. Which is one of the reasons why you can’t bring more than 100ml on planes, see?

The things you learn on my blog everyday ._.

I think when I’ve used up the hand cream I’ll wash it and use it as a paperweight on my desk or maybe to store paper clips or whatever.

THE CONTAINER IS TOO FRIGGIN CUTE AND I’M A SUCKER FOR AWESOME PACKAGING. 

All the Korean skincare brands have such cute packaging, makes you want to buy them all

I think it’s getting harder to find a good fruity scent nowadays- all the nice ones I come across are mostly floral and musk!

The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Nails (Red RD301 & Lavender PP401)

 

Hi guys!

All ready for Chinese New Year?

If not, get into the mood with this gorgeous red nail polish from The Face Shop!

(Lovely ME:EX3 Paint Nails RD301)

 

 

 

I got it in the Xmas gift sets on sale for $14.90, with another nail polish and the Mini Pet Hand Cream, which is my ultimate favourite hand cream now! (I even use it when my hair gets too dry sometimes because it is a hassle to bring leave-on hair conditioner)

I’ll review it some other time. I actually have an extra pot of Mini Pet hand cream that I’m putting up for sale (see my ‘for sale’ link on the Nav Bar)

I noticed The Face Shop outlets have not been stocking much of them nowadays… Hopefully they don’t discontinue them ;-;

Check out all the colours  here. I’ve provided links to the two colours too, just click on them ^^

Anyway, I really like the feel of these nail polishes, quick to dry, and goes on smoothly. Of course, slower hands might result in a goey texture (like dough) so make sure each coat goes on- fast!

I like to apply a thin layer first over a base coat (it still looks really great even if you’re not bothering to apply a base coat) so my clumsy skills don’t let it trickle over the sides.


The colour is really solid through, not like those lousy nail polishes that need thousands of coats to look solid. Of course I’m exaggerating. But you know what I mean. I love Liole, but they are so watery I can’t be bothered to wait for each layer to dry.

 

(look at my failed quick attempt)

 

 

 

 

To be fair, I took like 5 seconds on each nail, just for a demo. I’m not THAT sloppy when I do my nails.

The colour is just plain gorgeous :3

I know some of you might think- ‘ick, that colour is for old ladies and power career women’, but give it a try!


I’ve been sticking to boring colours like biege and pink for god knows how long, then my friend shocked me up by buying this dark blue nail polish from O.P.I because she told me she was tired of watching me put on nail polish that didn’t look like I put on nail polish (God bless her). And guess what?
 

I loved it.

And I am way more adventurous now, so when I saw the gift set I thought, ‘Well, why not?’

If you are still a bit wary of bright colours, this muted purple will suit you well. It’s still feminine and girly, but not too boring or plain.

I just loooooooove the texture.

 

 

 

Pretty yeah? This is so going on my toes!

 

Tell me what you think 🙂

 

I think I’ll get the Nail Dot Pen next!

 

 

******************************************************************************

 

Loves: Texture, colour… almost everything!

 

Hates: It gets gooey after awhile and sometimes it leaks to the sides, so I put two thin layers. Nothing much to complain about.

 Rating: 9/10

 Would I buy it again?: Yep, I love this range! But I won’t buy the exact same colours (duh)

Pricing: Not too sure, but I saw it on offer once, 3 for 10SGD

The Face Shop Green Tea Phyto Powder Cleansing Foam

Today, I’ll be reviewing The Face Shop’s facial foam cleanser- Phyto Powder in Cleansing Foam (Green Tea). I’ve heard lots of raves about this cleanser and how it doesn’t dry out your skin etc.,

so I’ll put these claims to the test!

 

I chose it because I wanted something with a gentle, mild scent and this certainly smells like a hot cup of green tea, with your sushi!

Anyway, the product certainly lived up to its claims. After using it, the redness and swelling in certain trouble areas (my forehead and nose area) was reduced. You might feel a slight tingling, burning sensation but I left it there for half a minute after massaging it in because that sensation tells me it’s doing its job ^^ The burning sensation disappeared right after I rinsed it off, so it definitely does not irritate the skin (no redness or itchiness), and you are left with a cool, refreshing feeling!I’m starting to think that I could have left it on my face longer~ like a mask hehe



 

Product looks pale yellow under bright white light, but turns white and foamy after massaging.

As with all Face Shop cleansers, it produces a thick, creamy white foam so a little bit goes a long way! I used about two thumb-nails-sized (lol) and managed to work up a thick even layer over my face. *thumbs up*

*****************************************************************************************************************************************

Loves: Cheap price, refreshing feeling, effectiveness- my zits were less red and swollen the next day!

Hates: None!

Rating: 8.5/10

Will I purchase it again?: Absolutely! Maybe other kinds in the same range… I wanted the Spearmint (for men though) for its gorgeous smell but it was all out :(((( *tsk tsk*

Price: 9.90 BDN (not sure about S’pore price ‘cos I purchased it in Brunei)However, it is a lot cheaper if you purchase it online. Check out Qoo10 (<– click to go). The Herb Day cleansers go down to 3.90SGD per tube on discount days!  (I know right)
