I have always been an ardent user of nature enriched beauty products. There is no dearth of chemically-laden products that are part of our everyday lives. And, amongst this if there is a beauty brand that has offered a respite from the humdrum of bizarre products; it is no less than a blessing! We all know how Koreans are always on the quest for healthy skin, and when it comes to make up they have always revolutionised the industry by introducing some innovative products! Yes, I can totally vouch for Korean beauty and make-up products. Give this post a read, and you will know it all!
Recently, I was invited to attend a workshop by The Faceshop India with a renowned make-up artist Bobby Chopra to try the newly launched ‘The Faceshop’ beauty and make-up products in India. The coveted brand has body, bath, and skin care and make up products using over 1000 natural ingredients such as flowers, grains, plants, fruits, and oriental medicine to nourish the skin.
So, to continue with the post, I used few of their products for 4-5 days before penning it down for my review.
Rice Water Bright- Cleansing Foam
Why Rice water as an ingredient?
It is an excellent ingredient for skin and hair. The fermented rice water has all the benefits for you to have a radiant and youthful skin. It helps in reducing pores and fine lines and voila! Your skin gets better day by day!
It comes in a sturdy, glossy tube and I was quite happy with the packaging. I took a little more than a pea sized quantity to wash my face, and it has a soft, creamy and pearly texture. While I was gently massaging my skin with this facewash, it did lather up nicely. The best part- it has a mild, soothing fragrance and I absolutely loved it [I can actually eat it up ;-)]. I am usually not a fan of a any face wash which leaves my skin dry after using it. This one just did not! It is mild and yet cleansed my skin properly, giving me a fresh feeling!
CC Cooling Cushion- V 203
Why cushion compact foundation?
A wonderful innovative product introduced by the Koreans to the western world, this one surely comes as a blessing to many! It’s a foundation absorbed in the sponge and by pressing the applicator against the sponge, it uniformly spreads on the applicator for you to use. It’s a very innovative way of using foundation which gives you a uniform texture.
The product definitely gets brownie points for the packaging. It comes in a very cute case like a face of a Pooh and Mickey! When the foundation touches the skin, it actually cools your skin down which you will feel while using it. It gives a natural dewy coverage without making it look over the top with makeup. It blurs imperfections and pores giving a very natural coverage and dewy polish. People who are looking for a thick- heavy coverage, may be, they won’t like it. I totally loved it because I like natural coverage making it an everyday use product for me!
The solution- Brightening face mask, formulated with pearl
Why pearl as an ingredient?
Pearl is another ingredient which is extensively used by the beauty brands all over the worl. It actually helps in achieving a radiant skin, which again helps in defying signs of aging and give you an instant glow.
It is a one-time use mask which again comes in an excellent packaging. The pouch is easy to carry while you are travelling. Once you tear open the pouch, you will find a thin glossy sheet which has to be removed from the foil like kind of a sheet. They are super hygienic and light as an air sheet. Once I had put it on my face, it gave me a cooling sensation. I kept it for 20 minutes on my face and took a power nap. After, I woke up, believe me my skin was glowing and was so soft and supple. The effect doesn’t last for more than 2 days or so but then again it’s a quick fix which gives you instant results.
About the Faceshop India Workshop with Bobby Chopra
Martini On Heels is always on a scout for new products so that you have a hands on review on the new launches. Bobby Chopra’s workshop was quite informative where she gave a demo on how to do a summery, fresh, natural make-up! I totally loved it!
Will I recommend The Faceshop India?
Totally, I am recommending you guys to give it a shot! My love for Korean beauty products is evident for my post. After I gave it a try, I certainly didn’t regret it!
Hope you guys had enjoyed reading my post, as much as I enjoyed writing it!
Until, next time, Much love!
