The Face Shop Freebies

One of the things I love when shopping on some korean beauty stores are the freebies or GWP (gift with purchase) that they offer that sometimes I buy more than what I have planned just to avail them.

The Face Shop gave a pack of freebies just by availing their P150 VIP Card.  Tried most of them on and after my trip to Coron and here's the description of the products plus a little of my thoughts after sampling a sachet or two:

E’thym O2 Water Recharging Essence
"Refreshing hydration line containing natural ingredients with 5 free system (Mineral oil-free, Paraben-free, Benzophenone-free, Artificial colorant-free, Animal origin ingredient-free) and premium oxygen water. E'thym helps your skin look younger and well-moisturized."

What I love to love:  Keeps my dry skin moisturized all day
What I love to hate:  It breaks me out

Natural Sun AQ Power Long-lasting Sun Cream SPF45 PA+++
"Natural Sun AQ (Absolute Quality), a mild sun block product line made from natural plant extracts such as rhubarb plant, argan tree seed and blue sea kale extracts.  This line features groundbreaking technology melding the best of both worlds – excellent sun protection and feather light texture through the Optimum Disperse System."

What I love to love:  Long lasting and waterproof that I don't need to reapply every time I go for a swim.
What I love to hate:  None. Oh, the long name!

ACE it Power Perfection BB Cream SPF37 PA++
"Total Skin Treatment BB cream(Special ingredients for rejuvenating skin): actively addresses all skin problems such as loss of firmness, dry skin, uneven skin texture and dull complexion."

What I love to love:  Adapts to my skintone and is easy to apply.
What I love to hate:  None as of the moment.

Real Nature Mask Lemon
"A mask sheet that has lemon extract which is rich in Vitamin C helps make the skin clearer."

What I love to love:  Really do brighten my face.
What I love to hate:  The essence is a bit sticky and it takes time before my skin absorbs it.

I haven't tried the Clean Face Mild Special Gift Set.  I'm saving the toner and lotion for my next trip.

Thanks for reading.  Till then.  Bye!


  1. Haven't tried to shop at Korean beauty stores yet. I always buy my beauty products in boutiques or Healthy Options (para organic). Those freebies you've got look nice. Perhaps I'll drop by the store someday and try their products. I'm interested to buy their sun cream. :)
