THE FACE SHOP | *NEW* Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Foam Cleanser & Rice Water Bright Facial Massage Cream: Review
In case you didn't know, Avon now carries quite a few popular Korean skincare and beauty brands such as Belif, VDL, and Isa Knox. One of the most well-known brands is probably THE FACE SHOP, which recently released a few new products that I want to share with you today.

THE FACE SHOP | *NEW* Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Foam Cleanser & Rice Water Bright Facial Massage Cream: Review
THE FACE SHOP | Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Foam Cleanser
THE FACE SHOP | Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Foam Cleanser (C$11.99 for 150 ml):
Packaged in a simple squeeze tube, the Jeju Aloe Fresh Soothing Foam Cleanser is a lightweight gel cleanser formulated with aloe, cica, green tea, licorice, and a handful of other skin-loving herbal extracts. The cleanser has a slightly gloopy texture similar to fresh aloe and it has a soft aloe scent. The formulation feels super gentle yet it still produces a satisfying lather that leaves the skin supple and clean. Simply put, this is an all-around great cleanser at a great price. I 100% would recommend it if you are looking for a gentle, everyday, no-fuss cleanser.

Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycerin, Sodium Cocoyl Alaninate, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Xanthan Gum, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract (10 ppm), Centella Asiatica Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lauryl Hydroxysultaine, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Cocoate, Citric Acid, Butylene Glycol, Trisodium EDTA, Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance, Linalool, Limonene

THE FACE SHOP | Rice Water Bright Facial Massage Cream
THE FACE SHOP | Rice Water Bright Facial Massage Cream (C$34 for 200 ml):
Formulated with rice water ("the milky white water obtained from rinsing rice"), this is a face cream designed to moisturize and brighten the skin. I find the name a bit misleading as this is essentially a moisturizer made with mineral oil so the "massage" part feels more like a marketing tactic. Housed in a huge plastic jar, the Rice Water Bright Facial Massage Cream has a soft, calming scent (a mix of soapy coconut vanilla, maybe) and a light, easy to spread texture. The formulation feels instantly soothing on the skin but it leaves behind a noticeably greasy feeling (as is expected with petroleum-based skincare). The instructions suggest the removal of any excess product with a facial tissue (if you desire) but that sounds like an awful amount of work for me. Overall, this simply a mineral oil moisturizer. The "massage" part doesn't appeal to me as a) I can massage my face using any moisturizer and b) I really don't have the time for that level of self-care. Additionally, as someone with combination skin and congested pores, I tend to avoid mineral oil but if you struggle with dry skin, this could be a very affordable moisturizer for daily use.

Ingredients: Mineral Oil, Purified Water, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Triethylhexanoin, Glycerin, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Polysorbate 60, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract (0.1 %), Saponaria Officinalis Leaf Extract, PEG-100 Stearate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Tromethamine, Carbomer, Adenosine, Trisodium EDTA, Caramel, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Ethylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Fragrance, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool
