THE FACE SHOP Chia Seeds Skin Care


Here`s something I got in Korea last summer and I`ve been using it since and now I`m ready for a review.
(●´∀`●) When I was in Korea I already knew I will be sight-seeing at the cosmetics/makeup stores a lot. XD And I did, I bought quite a lot, but this is the best purchase I made in my opinion. *(*´∀`*)☆

THE FACE SHOP Chia Seed skincare series! 

I don`t know why I even bought this, as I was happy with my hialuronic acid and natural oils mix routine... wait, I know why! (*´・v・) They got my attention with the "chia seed" use and also with their "natural cosmetics" brand politics! Their brand`s tagline is "natural story" and their cosmetics don`t have the 7 not so cool additives: no parabens, no benzophenone, no mineral oil, no artificial color, no animal ingredients, no alcohol and no triethanolamine! Sounds great, doesn`t it!

Breand`s musings: 
A refreshing water drop that busts the moment it touches the skin fully hydrates the skin and moisturizes the inside of the skin for an extended period. Immediate hydration and a comfortable protective film Chia seed, which carries moisture 10 times its own weight, and chamomile provide immediate hydration and soothe dry and reddened skin quickly. Contains 100% chia seeds water instead of water Chia seeds water is extracted within 24 hours via the Fresh method, instead of water delivers the vitality of the highly pure chia seeds. 
ヽ(;^o^ヽ) OK bro.

I love the healthy chia seeds and I already eat them with cereal and put them in water, so why not also use them on my face? XD I was sold! 

I got the spray toner, lotion, serum and cream. The actually have 2 types of toner - regular pump bottle packaging and spray type bottle! I got the later, I though I could use it as face mist - but I actually don`t, really. (゜▽゜;) I use it as reagular toner, to prep my face for more skin care products in the morning. 
The series feels really moisturising, watery, not oily. The cream is light and watery. The cosmetics do leave a veil on my skin - but it`s a good feeling! It does feel a bit sticky but I don`t mind it personally and it has a strong fragrance, but luckily it disappears soon after application. The moisturising is good, but it`s not enough under my eyes, I guess I`m getting older and I need something thicker for my eyes. The serum has tiny capsules with chia seeds essence and you should gently pat it into your skin~ The lotion is my favorite from the whole series. If you don`t apply makeup over the cream you will really get the "dewy" skin look the Korean and Japanese cosmetics promise. The series gave me no breakouts and I really like it overall!! 

I am super happy with it and if you want to try it, but aren`t going to Korea anytime soon, you can get all the products from this series on eBay in reasonable prices! I am too much in love with my natural oils/hialuronic acid skincare routine so I won`t repurchase, but I will test another THE FACE SHOP cream, with mango seed butter. It seems to be more oily and thick and I imagine it smells amazing~~~ 


  1. This question is specifically for the toner because I'm looking for a new toner lols:
    does the toner have a really strong fragrance as well? Is it perfumy?

  2. Lin Yan - it has a quite strong frangrance, but not SUPER strong - after application it disappears within 20 minutes and it`s a pleasant smell~ :D

  3. I've always love the face shop skincare line ^^

  4. These products are interesting and I want to purchase one of these stuffs! I heard that some people are looking for safe and effective health products and I want to share with you the beaute pacifique.

  5. Hi, I wanna know, other than moisturizing, does this product give other benefit, like even out your skin tone, etc. ? Thanks

  6. Gorgeous, this link Skinlastin.That's all I can say about this. Beautifully done, and I wish I'm good enough to do something like this on my skin.

  8. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, Chia seeds offer the highest volume of Omega-3, as well as addition fiber (soluble and insoluble) along with vitamins or perhaps minerals you don’t usually get whenever you take sea food oil. Chia seeds giving you long lasting energy during the day moving in deep, restful sleep during the night time. Read more about Chia seeds at:
