The Face Shop Haul – Gangnam Shopping Part Three

Here is the third and last part of my huge shopping spree in Gangnam last weekend. I do not buy too many things in one day but I guess I did it Gangnam style. I thought I would play with my new products and not go out for the rest of the week as it is the end of the month and I crossed my usual shopping limit. But I was wrong. I feel bored and today is just day4 of not going out and looking at new stuff.

Actually my time to go back to India is coming near and I want to buy and try as many Korean products as I can. Most of these products are not available in India and I am not a huge internet shopping fanatic yet. Besides there are many other brands in India that I need to explore.

I have bought enough “basic” makeup and beauty stuff from Korean brands and have a huge collection of The Face Shop, Etude House and Nature Republic products in particular. I have decided to try new things. So here are the things I got from The Face Shop store in Gangnam:

The Face Shop haul – Design my Eyebrow pencil, Mini sweet pet and cream, nailpaint remover sponge, gel touch nails top coat

– Quick sponge nail remover
– Mini Pet Sweet hand cream #4
– Face it Gel Touch Nails Top & Base coat
– Lovely me:ex Design My Eyebrow Brow #03 Black

In my definition, different means the same thing packaged in a different way πŸ˜‰ My beloved Oriflame top and base coat has given up on me after more than a year so I got the awesomesauce Face it Gel Touch Nails Top & Base Coat. I never really apply a base coat but I do tend to apply a top coat.

Mini Pet sweet just for the packaging. We can never have a cuteness overload in life. this would rest in my purse when I go back to India. Everyone has these in their purse her so if I won’t be doing anything different here but if I use it in India, I would feel so unique tking this out to moisturize my hands. And I can refill this time and again!

Nailpaint remover sponge just to ease getting of glitter nail paints. I have heard that these work well with them. We shall see. I picked this immediately after Etude House Bling in the Sea glitter nail paint. So the contenders are in the court already!

I am not a beauty guru andΒ I do not do my eyebrows. But a good eyebrow pencil may coax me into presenting my sparse eyebrows well. Stay tuned for swatches and mini reviews in my next post of my Gangnam Shopping Spree.

    Hi, I’ve never been to the face shop before, and I was planning on going this weekend to buy some facial products. But, I honestly have no idea what I’m supposed to buy there. Help? Tips? ( I have kinda oily skin)

      Connie, I think you are asking about Skin care (?) I have not tried many products from The Face Shop skincare, I mostly use their face masks.
      For skincare I have heard really good things about their THE SMIM products – which are pricier. In the comparatively reasonable range, you can try their Chia or Mango Seed toner and emulsion. Some of their other most popular products are the “Rice Water” cleanser, face wash, massage cream, toner and emulsion. Their Aura CC cream (comes in a cushion product like packaging but is “press to dispense) is also good.
      Hope this helps.
      If you are looking for a specific line, let me know and I can do some research for you πŸ™‚
