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)

 

 

 

The Body Shop Passionfruit Body Butter and Scrub

 
I just loooooove The Body Shop.
How could you not? You can smell the shop a mile away- those delicious, fruity smells! I love how they give out those small little sample containers during a new shop opening or for whatever occasion- I just run there and start sampling! I always come out smelling like I’ve just walked into a lovely tropical garden.  
Back to the picture. This is the passionfruit body scrub (left) and the body butter. The body butter is actually pale purple, but you can’t really see it here. The scrub is quite gentle, and leaves your skin smelling nice, and soft to the touch; but like most scrubs you really don’t want to use it more than twice a week in case you rub too zealously and damage your skin. The body butter is suited for normal to dry skin, and I like it because its not oily. I’m thinking of getting the Shea butter for my calves because I have this really awful-looking ‘snakeskin’, but as for now this is fine.  
Effectiveness: 8/10 for both
Overall rating: 9/10 for the scrub and 8/10 for the body butter
Price: SGD30.90 each (before membership discount)
Do you guys have any products from the Body Shop you love as well? 🙂 I’ll post more reviews next time!
UPDATE: The body scrubs and butters are on 30% discount now, so do snap them up quick!
