The Face Shop Haul

Hi lovelies! So I visited The Face Shop for the first time today, I enjoyed it so much and looking forward to buy more beauty products from there. They also give you a generous amount of samples with your purchase! The sales associate was super helpful and not too pushy at all. She helped me find exactly what I needed. They also have a free points membership that can save you $!

Warning: picture heavy


I have so much samples and products to review now! Please stay posted :)


                                               

I purchased these three from The Face Shop, Lovely me ex cushion blusher, Green tea cleansing foam, & White mud nose pack, the rest were samples!




I could not resist this blusher, the packaging is too adorable! In the case it looks like more or a hot coral pink color but when swatched it looks more baby pink. I'll have to try it on and show you girls how it looks on my face, I think that would be better. It was $11, not too bad for a blush.


The Green tea cleansing foam with phyto powder ($16.00) was what the sales associate recommended for me. I told her I needed a daily face wash to use after I take my make-up off with a make-up remover wipe to make sure the make-up is all off. She said this is a mild foam cleanser that specifically takes off make-up residue and cleanses skin impurities that is safe for everyday use. So it was exactly what I was looking for and the green tea smells really good! I chose this white mud nose pack ($7.00) for taking out black heads from my nose, you wash your face with warm water and then apply a thick coat on your nose, wait for 10-15 min. Then you can peel it off and finish with a toner. She said this was very popular, so can't wait to try. I have some stubborn spots on my nose that a nose strip can never reach or get out. This is way better than the pore strips!


I'm really excited about this sample! The White tree snow, is one of their best products but also most expensive. It comes with a clarifying booster toner and a hydra advance emulsion. This will help brighten and smooth your skin, helps clarify, fades dark spots. I need a new toner, so we'll see how this works out.


I'm also excited about this sample! It is a cleansing oil to take off make-up that brightens dark spots at the same time. It's killing two birds with one stone. I never used a cleansing oil to take off my make-up, I usually use make-up wipes because they are more convenient but she said this is more effective so hopefully it is. I have old acne spots so this will also help while removing make-up.


This is a tea tree oil mild toner and lotion that is quick and effective for skin problems. Also looking forward to this since I break out when I am stressed and I'm still in school right now so I am always stressed! Never ending studying, work, and hw...oh the college life. We'll see if this helps with break outs and clearing skin. Tea tree oil is a natural remedy for acne.

The power perfection BB cream is another best selling product from their store, it helps with dryness, whitens, has spf 37 which is great, also has perfect coverage without being too thick on the skin. Sounds good, we shall see. The magic cover BB cream is a full coverage BB cream, it can hide blemishes, dark spots, fine lines. It has anti aging functions, spf 20, while giving a natural look. I don't think this would be for me since I do not care for anti aging properties and it only has spf of 20. I also do not have wrinkles.


 Water proof BB cream is made to replenish moisture from within and protects against UV rays spf 50, while being sweat and oil resistant. That seems like a great product since BB cream cannot usually last very long so we'll see how that works out. Seems like it would protect your skin very well with the spf. The essence BB cream is good for sensitive skin, it is long lasting and provides a silky smooth texture. This doesn't have spf so I'm not really interested but I will still try it.

Also got two things from Ulta. Psssssst! Dry shampoo, heard about this on youtube and a Rimmel lipstick in paradise. I really love the batiste dry shampoo, best I ever tried so I wanted to try this since its cheaper and see if it works just as well. 


This color caught my eye because it seemed like a good Fall color that I can wear everyday. I really like it because its gives the perfect color for my lips. Just make sure with Rimmel lipsticks to wear lip balm before because they tend to be dry when wearing.


Happy Sunday! Xo, Denise

  6. The blush is adorable, very pretty pink, cute packaging and not too bad a price as well :) I think Rimmel make some excellent lipsticks - I particularly like their Moisture Renew and Kate Moss range.
