NYC Skincare Haul: THEFACESHOP

I went to NY this past weekend and completely overspent on hauls from different stores. I bought very useful things and mostly products that I know I will use because they are essentials. So without further ado, let's jump into my haul from THEFACESHOP.

I fell in love with this company on my last trip to NY. I bought some of their skincare products last time and I've seen my skin slowly getting rejuvenated with each use. This time I bought some more skincare products.
#1 Smart Peeling White Jewel Exfoliating Scrub - I picked this up to replace my St. Ives scrub.When I tried this at the store, I liked how it felt like a microdermabrasion scrub on my skin. The fine particles in the creamy cleanser was soft enough not to make my skin irritated but just enough to take the dead skin off and smooth out my skin tone. I plan on using this once a week before using a sheet mask.

#2 Herb Lip & Eye Remover - Sadly, the makeup remover bottle broke in my luggage on the way home so it spilled a bit. I really like the aftermath of this remover. It leaves the skin around my eyes very soft and refreshed. Its not oily at all and it doesn't require shaking to mix. It works very well on my eye makeup except for my waterproof eyeliner, that takes a bit longer to take off. Overall, I like the light scent and liquid of this remover.

#3 Herb Day Cleansing Tissues - It smelled very refreshing with a hint of cucumber. I had ran out of my Yes to Cucumbers wipes on this trip so I picked this up. The smallest package it came it was the 20 sheets which is still a bit bulky to carry around but I liked the feeling of freshness it left on my face so I decided to buy it anyways.

#4 Lovely ME:EXMini Pet Perfume Hand Cream - It was completely adorable and just sat on the shelf staring at me. I just fell in love with it. I bought the 02 Summer Floral scent and its a lovely light scent. The cream itself is non-sticky and highly moisturizing. The packaging is small enough to carry in a purse.

#5 Lovely ME:EX Nail Polish Remover in Pink - Haven't gotten a chance to use them yet but it smell fruity and lovely.

#6 Cereal Mask Sheet Walnut and Pine Nut, #7 Cotton Squares, #8 EcoTherapy Emulsion - These were all samples the store gave me to try. I've used masks from THEFACESHOP before and the results are pretty good but I didn't like the thick texture of the sheet. It was also a lot larger than my face is. The cotton squares are soft and doesn't leave cotton hairs all over my face but its thin. It doesn't soak too much liquid and gives off a lot onto your skin which is good because you're not wasting product on the cotton pad. The emulsion bottles are so cute! They're small and easy to carry for travel. I plan on using it on travel and on the plane.
