The Face Shop – Travel Ready Beauty


Everyone around me knows I’m the hang-up type. When I find something I like I consume it with all my heart until the love affair is over for good. Luckily there are long lasting loves that last a lifetime, but there are also shorter flings that are just as important.

These are my current favorites from The Face Shop,  the ultimate must-have skin care and beauty items for travel – the ones I’d never leave home without. There’s nothing worse than arriving at security and having your precious, full-sized products confiscated.  I hate to admit it, But I’m a fan of buying travel-size emulsion, deodorant, contact solution, toothpaste and skin products.
I’ve been using these Calendula essential moisture toner and emulsion as part of my daytime skincare routine for the past one month, and I think that’s enough time to get a good feel for them. If you’re not familiar with what Korean-style “toner” and “emulsion” are, it basically means a liquidy skin softening step (usually applied with a cotton pad or the fringes) and a very lightweight creamy lotion.

A hydrating toner emulsion that helps improve suppleness, and gives your skin a surge of moisture. The emulsion consistency is thicker than the toner’s. I only used my hands to apply these two products, and never had to use any cotton pads. The toner consistency is actually thicker than the usual watery toner, which does help moisturize my skin when the cool blast of air conditioning leaves me dried out.

The Therapy is an anti-aging skincare line that embodies a two-century-old European natural blending method from Le Marche, Italy. The use of oat seeds, marigold, bay leaf and olive extracts keep skin looking youthful.

The Therapy is bottled up with the sweat of Marches’ very own hand-made manufacturing method. This European base skincare line comes with four products from tonic treatment, formula emulsion, oil-drop-anti-aging serum and cream. The anti-aging treatment is formulated with an essential ingredient that functions as a toner and booster to even out rough and flaky skin.

Sheet masks are always my favorite option to carry during my trips and I carry a lot of them especially when I am visiting home as these are my mother’s favorite thing!

The sheet masks are fully dipped in a plain white moisturizing solution. I think the quantity of moisturizer is very good to cover up my whole face. It is a normal plain white mask, that never leaves any stain behind on face. Size of the sheet mask is good for a long face like me but with oval face, it needs effort to fit it properly. The texture nicely sticks on my face. The gel feels like a super smooth silky consistency, that is also easy to massage on face.

I keep this for around 20min on face and then massage the gel on face for around 5min and rinse it off. Sheet is full of moisturizer, that starts to penetrate in the skin nicely after few minutes. It never feels dry on skin and also it is easy to peel off from face.

After removing the mask, face feels totally moisturized and soft. It acts as an instant relief for dry skin. It hides all my dry patches and makes skin super soft. The mask feels very soothing on face and the cooling sensation provides a great relief to tired skin.

The Face Shop launched its Dr. Belmeur range a few months ago. It is a gentle Derma Cosmetics solution that uses mild plant-based ingredients + low irritant formula recommended by skin experts tailored for different skin types to achieve beautiful, healty skin that feels great.

Dr. Belmeur line uses Skin Sync formula that comes very close to our skin cell structure, which will be easily accepted by skin. Dr. Belmeur Clarifying Toner is a low-irritant clarifying moisturizer that takes care of excess oil and maintains skin’s oil and moisture balance. A must-have to achieve flawless, oil-free skin!

YEHWADAM Revitalizing Serum is a good choice if you want to re-vitalize and re-energize your skin. The first thing I noticed after using this serum is the suppleness of my skin, it feels bouncier and smoother. I just love the texture on my skin because it gives me this cooling sensation that could help in soothing my mild sensitive skin.

Been using The Face Shop Rice Water Bright and Perfume Seed collection for about a fortnight and it’s good. While it is a bit of tedious step to foam it up I love how soft and bright my skin feels post wash.

The perfume seed line penetrates to nourish and soften the skin while leaving it delicately perfumed. The Face Shop Perfume Seed Capsule Body Wash contains rose hip oil that moisturizes and removes dead skin cells. Its sweet fragrance lasts up to 15 hours.
