Skincare Review: The Face Shop’s Yehwadam Revitalising Serum and Snow Lotus Pearl Capsule

The Face Shop - Yehwadam - Review - Skin Care - Anti Ageing

This year’s first skin care review goes to two new products from The Face Shop that have floored me. Like I said a couple of posts ago, I would be a little more picky when it comes to what I feature on this space so as to give you guys more curated content and I think these new products are a good way to start that new policy.

So The Face Shop recently came out with a new range called Yehwadam and I was able to try their Revitalising Serum and the Snow Lotus Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream. Both are great if you’re looking into adding some oomph into your night time routine – especially on the anti-ageing department.

Beauty: Products to Watch Out for when Mamonde Comes to Malaysia in August!

Mamonde, Korean, Korean Beauty, Kbeauty, Korean Beauty Products, BB Cushion, Face Mask, First Energy Essence, First Energy Serum, Makeup, Beauty, Skin Care

I have to admit that I’ve become quite bored with a lot of blogging events and found myself not in the mood to attend. Mainly because I’m quite busy with so many things and when I find myself having free time, my lazy butt just refused to leave the comforts of our home. If it’s not something that would really pique my interest, I’ve been saying no.

Mamonde coming to Malaysia is something that fell into the category that piques my interest so off I went to Damansara on a weekend which is usually reserved for errands and dates with the husband. “It will only last for 2-3 hours, I promise!” was what I told Alvin that day.

I’m glad I went as I wasn’t disappointed. The event was well-thought off and the products got me really excited! But first, the basics!

Is it just another Korean Beauty Brand?

Mamonde (French word for ‘My World’) is yes, a Korean beauty brand. It’s also under Amore Pacific, Korea’s biggest cosmetics company that also owns Sulwhasoo, Laneige, and Innisfree among others. But what sets Mamonde apart is its use of flowers as the (only) key ingredients for its comprehensive skin care range. They also have makeup but we’ll get to that later.

Amore Pacific’s Research Institute experimented on flowers has been extracting nourishing ingredients that are good for our skin and bottling them up into products. Thus, the brand’s tagline – Inspired by flowers.

Shall we move on to the exciting bit? The products you should check out when they come to Malaysia? 😉

Scroll down after the video for the list of products I mentioned and a discount code in Althea where you can get all these products. 🙂
