Haul, Review, and Giveaway [closed]: The Face Shop (1)

Let's switch things up a bit with Korean cosmetic brands and move on to The Face Shop
As usual, these hauls and product reviews are not sponsored. I wish though ;P At least I'll give honest reviews. Some of these products I've had for awhile and some I just bought.

Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam 
Website description: Soft, creamy lather provides gentle cleansing that last during cleansing.  

We'll start off with the Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam, not to be mistaken with Rice Water Bright Rice Bran Cleansing Foam. They have almost identical packaging design, where latter comes in yellow instead of pink. I've used the Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam for over a year now. My skin type is combination oily in the summer and combination dry in the winter. Right now it's winter where I am so I use it sparingly because it dries out my face. The Face Shop website states that it's for all skin types but if your face is combination dry to dry, I would not recommend it. For oily to combination oily, this can work, but it really depends on the individual's skin and body processing. The website also suggests it for skin whitening and I can attest to that. My face looked brighter as opposed to getting paler. Think about how sparkly a window or mirror gets after wiping it clean.

Fun fact from my knowledge: This cleanser contains lauric acid, which is found in human and animal milk. There are wonderful benefits of lauric acid, such as anti-acne.

White Mud Nose Pack
Website description: Formulated with White Mud and Burdock extract to effectively cleanse pores, this practical peel-off nose pack retains the shape of your nose for multiple use.

The White Mud Nose Pack is an abomination. This is a very sticky (stickier than maple syrup or honey) and messy product. It leaves strings of goo when you squeeze the tube out. And when you leave the tube sitting around for too long the ingredients inside separate, so you need to do what it takes to have them mix together again. My skin is not the most sensitive yet it hurts so much when I peel it off my face after the goo dries. Imagine rubbing crazy glue all over your nose area and peeling that off your face. YEOW!!! Does it get the job done? Somewhat, but the next product works better for blackhead removal and is much less painful.

  Volcanic Clay Black Head Aloe and Charcoal Nose Strip
Website description: Patch-type of black head nose pack that draws out blackheads completely
For blackhead removal, the Volcanic Clay Black Head Aloe and Charcoal Nose Strip is the stuff. They do the trick and do a better job than the Missha or Biore pore strips. It's fun to peel them off my nose and look at the yucky gunk I accumulated in my pores XD If you have sensitive skin, it might hurt but it doesn't hurt me at all. It just feels like my skin is being tugged. Beware, don't use these too often. It's fun, but since the strips are peeling skin cells off along with the sebum, if you use pore strips of any kind too much they may cause scarring and other skin problems. The Aloe strip is white and the Charcoal strip is black inside when you open the package, which I'm not gonna do because I want to give 3 sets of these away to you lovely readers!
