This Week's Hand Cream: The Face Shop's Mini Pet


A quick post from my phone:
if you follow or have liked my facebook page you'd know that i told yah about this brand that's now on the kawaii bandwagon they were on an almost exclusively copy the packaging and colors of this brand from across the korean strait sneeze haShuU sneeze.  and one of the items they good people of the face shop wanted to go kawaii on is their new set of hand creams.  tadaaaah

it's 30ml of creamy lotion and the ingredients are listed below:

and yes dear, there are occasions when the 'protective' covering is merely a plastic sheet that isn't even glued on the rim of the tub.

and here's the plastic thing.

the have three variants.

there are things i can't answer for you at the moment:

  1. if the face shop is cruelty free
  2. if a portion of the proceeds from the sale of these little darlings go to save the planet like their competitor does with each sale of their cutesy hand creams
  3. and the exact price.  it's less than 300 for 30ml
Likes:
  • cute packaging hahaha clearly
  • inexpensive compared to what we're used to with prices of the local the face shop (in the Philippines)
  • has three variants
  • this baby variant has baby powder scent which isn't over powering and not irritating to the back of my nose going to the back of my throat.  this is almost faint
  • moisturizing, maybe not as moisturizing as its competitor with the peach anti-aging hand cream but this is moisturizing nonetheless 
  • available where the face shop malls are located which is in most major malls which include Ayala and Robinson's malls and yeah even the tree cutting good guys' malls
  • small enough for a woman's purse.  well my purse is huge but this can fit in a small bag as well so it's great for travel.
Dislikes:
  • none that i can think of right now
Do I recommend: definitely, our young ladies can purchase this as gifts to each other specially now during graduation season.
Will I repurchase? - i may try the other variants.
has anyone else tried this?

Who's that guy? Anong movies/ series nya? Wish I had lips like that.

As of 2010, The Face Shop is listed as one of the Korean Cosmetics cruelty-free brands (but more prominent yun competitor sa mga lists hehehe). I did some research some time ago... :P

NAKU those are so cute. :3 If it's affordable, I might get those to decorate my vanity with... of course, and to try the hand cream. :3

nice, all i know about the face shop is that it's an LG. it's nice that they claim to be cruelty free ;-)
hahaha i don't know either, and yep they kinda all look the same except for the colors.
lemme get a closer look soon hahaha

Marge said...

got this yesterday...i wanted the pink one because it's so cute but i bought the orange one because of the scent :)

Marge said...

ooooh i might get the orange one as well. the scent of the baby powder one goes away rather quickly and ends up smelling like paper once it starts to fade LOL

Linda Li said...

super cute!!!!!

Marge said...

and it smells wonderful! so it's kinda like this, you apply it, so it smells great, then it fades into something that smells like old library paper but after 1 hand washing (and without reapplication) it goes back to the nice scent. kinda weird but nice LOL

Chiqui Perez said...

I saw them finally! I'm thinking of getting the kitty after all. :3 The red one appears to be a fox. ^^ The lotion in the kitty pot smells fruity-flowery, the one in the fox smells citrus-y, the one in the polar bear smells like mild baby powder.

I tested it first of course, feels nice. :) Now that Mineral Flowers is gone (sneeef), eto na replacement hand cream ko. ^^

hehehe so what i have is a polar bear?! awww, what is mineral flowers?

Chiqui Perez said...

It's an Israeli brand that only stayed here for about 3 years... it has dead sea mud (thus the minerals) and flower extracts (thus the flowers). It's pretty good, sayang di lang siya pumatok sa tekilya. Hehehe.
