You guys know how much I love Korean skin care. I swear, now that I'm not getting my Memebox fix anymore, I head to my favorite K-Beauty websites about once a week to pretend shop. In fact, last week when I was leaving Toronto, I was feeling a lot of anxiety about leaving and so I was virtual shopping on my phone in the airport as we waited for our flight. And speaking of my trip to Toronto, on the short list of places I absolutely needed to shop was THEFACESHOP. I've been using products from THEFACESHOP since the very beginning of my foray into Korean beauty and I feel like they're a consistently good brand when it comes to skin care. Recently, I was sent 3 products from their Chia Seed skincare line to test out and I'm ready to give you guys my thoughts!

Keep reading for a look at the products and my thoughts on them!

This fresh cleansing foam deeply cleanses the pores. Its mild formula moisturizes the skin while removing impurities.
Purified skin remains soft to the touch with a healthy glow!
Cleansing foams are definitely a common thing in Korean skin care and I can completely see why. My skin always feels cleanest after I've washed with a cleansing foam. This one is a thick texture with a very dense foam that I feel does a really good job of cleansing my skin. I tend to try to avoid that squeaky feeling, and this definitely gives me that, but I feel like any tight feeling to my skin goes away as soon as I move onto the next step of my skin care routine. I would avoid this if you have really dry skin, but I definitely think it's worth a try for those with combo to oily skins or just in general to people who prefer to use a cleansing foam to wash their face.

This toner illuminates your complexion in an instant and soothes sensitive skin. Use this mist lotion at any moment of the day to relieve and moisturize irritated skin or to simply refresh yourself.
Obsessed. Seriously, you guys, I am obsessed with this toner mist. You guys know I love a mist, but this actually might be my favorite I've ever tried. First, the mist is so fine that, even though you're actually applying a sufficient amount of product with a couple of spritzes, it never feels like you're dousing your face. I like to spray this onto my skin immediately after cleansing and then pat it in with my fingers and it makes my skin feel absolutely refreshed. This product has a beautiful, soft scent that reminds me of a spa and I think that helps to add to the sensory experience of it. You can also use this product throughout the day to refresh your skin, which I absolutely love. I would say that hands down this is my favorite product I've ever tried from THEFACESHOP and will absolutely be repurchased whenever I get through this bottle - which is gonna be a while, even using every single day, multiple times a day.

The Chia Seed Moisturizing Cream smoothes skin and leaves it velvety-soft. Enriched with Chia seed and chamomile extracts, it soothes and moisturizes skin while leaving a protective barrier on the epidermis.
This product was a bit of a sleeper surprise for me. The formula of this product is a gel cream texture and I find that it really packs a lot of punch without feeling heavy on the skin. I find that all you need is a very small amount of this to get a really good amount of moisture. The way I like to apply it is to dip the very tip of the accompanying spatula into the product and tap whatever product it picks up in small dots on my forehead, each of my cheeks, and my chin and that's gives me enough product to smooth over my entire face easily. This product sinks in quite quickly and leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated. My favorite part? When I use this, I wake up with skin that looks really hydrated and fresh! This is another product I would definitely try out again!

All in all, I'm really happy with these products. The cleanser isn't my favorite formula, but I feel like it does a really good job of cleansing the skin and any tightness left behind quickly fades after applying the toner. Speaking of the toner... I need backups of backups of this toner and if I was going to recommend one product from this line to absolutely every person who reads this, it would be the toner. I literally can not say enough good things about this toner, so I'm just going to stop before I gush. I also really love the moisturizing cream and think that it would be a great summer moisturizer for a lot of different skin types, and a great year round moisturizer for combination or oily skins.

Honestly, trying out these products has just made me even more interested in trying out more products from THEFACESHOP and I'm looking forward to digging into the sheet masks that I picked up in Toronto! Check back for a review of at least one of those!

Thanks for reading! Have you tried any products from THEFACESHOP? I'd love some recommendations for what to try out next!
