Review: The Face Shop "Happy Chu Lip"

Rating:  8  out of 10
Color: PK105
Me: I love multi-tasking products! I really like the moisturizing aspect of this and the wash of color it gives. Its perfect to carry it around and just apply on because it's moisturizing, yet it still gives you a pretty wash of color! I personally love this because of the color, its a great pink and makes my lips look very plump!
Repurchase: Yes, in a different color! (I think the red would be very pretty!)
How-to: Just put this on top of your bare lips for a slight pink milky color!
Price: $8; not too bad, but more on the pricey side just for like a tinted lip balm. However, it does last quite a while, so that's good!
Quality: This definitely has the concept of a colored lip butter. Its texture is like a lip balm, but it also does give a decent about of color! It's quite moisturizing actually, but it doesn't leave your lips super nourished and hydrated. The color is very nice because it's a slight tint, yet buildable, and it jazzes up your lip color just slightly. **The only downside to this particular color is that it shows the lines and how chapped your lips are! It's probably because it's a 'milky' color... :(
Smell: I quite like the smell! It has this kinda sweet-floral-fruity smell to it, and I really really like the smell! You can't smell it once you put it on though!
Texture: This is quite moisturizing, it's almost like a lip balm, however its not super balmy or anything. Although it stays on your lips, and keeps them hydrated, once it wears off, your lips don't stay very moisturized like a lip balm would do.
Packaging: The packaging is quite nice! Small, easy to carry around. The packaging is simple, yet very cute. Cute and practical.

I couldn't find a link to where you could purchase this online, but I bought mine at the actual Face Shop store, so maybe check yours if you have one around you! :)

Review: The Face Shop "E'thym O2 Water Aura Cream"

 Hello everyone! Woo, I'm on a roll with blogging now! Hopefully I can get a lot more done during the summer since there won't be school and such. Summer here is so hot, and all year round, it's pretty dry. I have combination skin, and it gets pretty dry in the winter, and this was definitely a life saver for me last winter. And for those around the other side of the globe, winter is approaching, so you might want to check this out.
The Face Shop has really opened up globally and I see it's stores all across America now, so that's a plus because you can easily get it around you now possibly!
Rating: 8.5 out of 10
Skin type: Any; not extremely oily skin, great for dry skin and normal skin.
Me: I have combination skin that gets dry in the winter, so I need something that will moisturize without making me oily. Even in the summer when my skin has one of those 'dry' days, this feels extremely nice after popping it in the fridge... sooo refreshing. And I love how this is a very natural product, so you know your skin is getting good stuff.
Repurchase: Yes! I would definitely repurchase this when I run out.
How-to: After washing your face, applying toner, and apply this on. A LITTLE BIT GOES A LONG WAY! ***I would recommend this as a night moisturizer, but if you have dry skin, daytime would be fine too!
Price: I don't remember the price, sorry! But I believed it was around $20-30 or so, maybe more on the pricey side of things I think... But if you think about it, you really only use a little bit, so this could last you for quite a while!
Quality: It's a really great moisturizer cause immediately you can feel how plump and moisturized your skin is, and your skin feels fresh and not heavy at all. However, for oilier skin, you have to be careful, cause it can make you look oilier if you use too much.
Smell: It smells very fresh. It reminds me of water... even though water doesn't have a smell, but it just reminds me of something very fresh and light.
Texture: It feels like a VERY THICK cream (yet 'watery'), and you think it's gonna make you oily and clog your pores, but it really doesn't. Since being a thick cream, you only need the tiniest bit for your whole face, and once applied, it feels great. Your skin feels very plump, moisturized, and fresh. It definitely seals in all the moisture of your skin without it feeling heavy.
Packaging: The packaging is a thick glass jar. Not the most sanitary, but I really love the design of the jar and the mint color. The cap actually 'snaps' when twisted, so you know it's completely sealed.
Amount: 60 ml. / 2.02 fl. oz.
