The Face Shop: Glow Getter Pack Review 2019

*Disclaimer: The pictures used in this post belong to me. Everything written here is just my opinion. This post is not sponsored.

Hey, folks!

I actually started writing this post on New Year’s Eve but never got around to posting it. As usual, I was supposed to post this in October but never got around to it and so, here I am. Of course in the recent course of time, I’ve been trying to make a post every week or so. I noticed that there was a sudden surge in viewers who seemed interested in Korean or generally Asian made products and so I decided that it was time to bring in more variety to my blog posts. Just to clarify- this post is not to review the product but the hype of the combo, to see whether purchasing it is any better than just buying the masks separately.

Now, let’s get into the review-

What is The Face Shop?

The Face Shop is a South Korea based skincare and cosmetics manufacturer, retailer and a franchise business. It is a subsidiary of LG Household & Health Care of LG Corporations. Its products includes body, bath, skin care and make-up aimed at both women and men. Its headquarters is in the LG Gwanghwamun Building in Jongno-gu, Seoul.

Word On The Street?

A massive hit! People are scrambling to their nearest stores or heading over to the Nykaa.com website just to get a piece of this amazing new South Korean action. Their social media is very active and responsive to their audience. Even their cute mascot has managed to snag the hearts to several of their customers!

Personally?

I’ve actually never really tried any of The Face Shop products, despite having a large wishlist full of their items. Somehow, I’ve ended up with a surplus of Innisfree skincare instead, another amazing Korean brand. The Face Shop is quite popular and I know that a lot of people enjoy using their wide range of products. Trust me, I’m working on getting more of their items at the moment but until then, let’s just start with this!

The Real Nature: Lemon Face Mask

This packet includes one face mask. It is described to be the right choice for brightening and it will even out your skin tone with its lemon essence. Single use only!

Cost– ₹100

Since I’ve a combination skin type, I often avoid using products that could potentially either dry up my skin or make it oilier. As a lot of you may know, lemon is a great natural ingredient for oily skin. It helps reduce the oiliness and help you deal with pigmentation and is great for acne-prone skin types. With summer right around the corner, I can see how this would be beneficial for people with oily skin.

Hit– Oily and Acne-Prone skin types.

Miss– Normal, Dry and Combination skin types.

The Real Nature: Honey Face Mask

This packet includes one single use face mask. Using this mask would guarantee the user rejuvenated, radiant and moisturised skin with a supple to touch feel.

Cost– ₹100

Honey being a naturally derived antibacterial moisturiser, makes it suitable for most skin types. It acts as a natural cleanser for both, dry and oily skin types. Honey is also very suitable for acne prone skin and helps treat scars caused by acne. Thanks to it’s mild properties, this face mask would be convenient to use any time of the year.

Hit– Normal, Dry, Oily and Acne-Prone skin types.

Miss– Check for possible allergies.

The Real Nature: Rice Face Mask

This packet contains one single use face mask. Using this mask would help treat dull skin and brighten your skin while using its anti-ageing properties to reduce the visibility of fine lines and age spots. If you look closely, you can see the glossy print on some of the rice grains.

Cost– ₹100

Rice is often the go to skincare ingredient I have often heard people talk about in India. From consuming rice water to applying it directly to the skin, the natural benefits of rice is a stranger to no one. In the form of a mask, it allows you to take advantage of its natural agents of cooling and anti-ageing. If you’re looking for a natural skin toner, rice water is the perfect choice for you! As for dry skin, fret not because while it does not dry up your skin any further, it soothes the skin from any kinds of burns or itches and at the same time prevents any further aggravation.

Hit– Normal, Dry, Oily and Acne-Prone skin types.

Miss– Check for possible allergies.

The Real Nature: Lotus Face Mask

This packet contains one single use face mask. The Lotus essence provides immediate hydration to the skin as well as moisturise it in the process.

Cost– ₹100

While I don’t find this mask particularly enticing, it could have its fair part to play with rejuvenation at the end of a tiresome day when you need a little touch of relief to refresh you. That being said, it does serve its purpose of being part of the Glow Getter theme.

Hit– All Skin Types.

Miss– Check for allergies.

The Real Nature: Pomegranate Face Mask

This packet contains one single use face mask. The natural pomegranate essence in this mask improves the elasticity of your skin and the abundance of Vitamin C in it helps smoothen your skin out as well as treat severe skin diseases like eczema and psoriasis.

Cost– ₹100

Much like most face masks we come across, this mask also helps in bringing back the glow to your skin and hydrate it during the harsh summers but the one thing that makes it stand out is the ability to firm the skin while it evens out your skin tone.

Hit– Most skin types.

Miss– Check for allergies.

The Red mask shows the typical instructions and directions printed on all the ‘Real Nature’ face masks and the Black mask shows the same for ‘The Solution’ face masks.

The Solution: Brightening Face Mask (Pearl)

This packet contains one single use face mask. As mention on the pack, this face mask uses pearl essence that deeply moisturises the skin and leaves with with a brightened look and supple feel.

Cost– ₹150

Yet another brightening face mask but with a twist, unlike the previous masks, this is a chemically and dermatologically tested mask with a mix of various ingredients. It has been rated to be best suited for dry and rough skin, hence leading me to believe that oily skin types could potentially suffer break outs.

Hits– Normal and Dry/rough skin types.

Miss– Oily, Combination and Acne-Prone Skintypes.

The Solution: Nourishing Face Mask (Propolis)

This packet contains one single use face mask. The propolis agent in the essence of the mask helps reduce signs of ageing and helps improve the vitality of the skin.

Cost– ₹150

I don’t have anything new to say, it’s yet again another mask that is not organic but helps nourish your skin, restore your youth and rejuvenate your skin. But, I would like to mention that the description of the product did say that this is beneficial for folks with dry and rough skin. So, I would suggest those will oily skin types to thread lightly with this mask.

Hit– Dry and Rough skin types.

Miss– Oily and Acne-Prone skin types.

My Verdict?

Well, I trust The Face Shop as a brand because over the period of time from first writing this review to now finally getting around to posting it, I’ve actually had the chance to review several of their masks. So far, I haven’t been disappointed with any of them and both my parents enjoy indulging in a little skin care every now and then. As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, this isn’t as much of a product review because I wanted to see what was the difference when I buy this combo Vs when I buy the individual product.

The combo is ₹800, which is the total sum of all the 7 masks combined (150×2 + 100×5= 800) but, when I bought this combo during a sale, I only paid around ₹600. Considering I saved about ₹200 plus received a cute printed pouch, I would say that it’s quite the steal. Of course, you need to make sure that the combo you buy is appropriate for your skin type. Also, about the pouch, buying this product solely for the pouch would be quite a stretch but honestly, it looks much better in person and I could think up of several uses for it in the future. So, finally, do I recommend this? Yes! It’s a great value combo, especially during sales because individual masks usually never have any price reduction during sales.

If you notice any inconsistencies with the timeline then I really do apologize, I had to edit the beginning of the post since it was made a while ago. As always, please do reach out to me if you have any suggestions or feedback. Also, if you liked this review then please make sure to leave a like and follow, if you like such content!

Until the next post,

Laters, folks!
