Spotlight | The Face Shop Mango Seed Skin Care Line.

Sometime last year, my husband sent me a bunch of goodies from The Face Shop. And in that haul was a box of miniatures from the Mango Seed Skin Care Line, which was the latest release from The Face Shop during that time.
Mango Seed Skin Care Line from The Face Shop.
This box came as a freebie, and inside was a 30 mL bottle of the Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Lotion, a 30 mL bottle of the Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner, and a 10 mL jar of the Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Facial Butter. This is one of the many reasons why I prefer to shop for Korean cosmetics in Korea. Aside from the affordable, at times even dirt-cheap prices, the shops in Myeongdong are pretty generous when it comes to giving away freebies and samples. Thank goodness I have a husband who works in Korea AND buys me makeup, haha!
Yes, practically everything is written in Hangul.
Anyway, here are some key features of the Mango Seed Skin Care Line, as well as the product benefits.
- It contains Mango Seed, a seed made of 100% natural vegetable butter. These seeds are concentrated with healthy nutrients that are good for the skin.
- Addresses 5 skin solutions: dryness, puffiness, itchiness, redness, poor elasticity.
- Locks in moisture for more than 24 hours.
- Made of natural ingredients.
- Free from alcohol, formaldehyde, ammonia, silicon, sulfate, parabens, and other harmful chemicals.
- No animal testing.
- Fair trade.

Now here are the products up close.
Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner.
(Full-sized bottle is 145mL, priced at 16900 Korean Won)  
The Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner is different from the other toners that I use/have used before. This one has two layers - the water layer, which replenishes moisture; and the milky layer, which smoothens and nourishes the skin. This two-layer feature reminds me of Face of Australia's Makeup Remover, which has a dual phase formula as well. Don't forget to shake the product before you use it!
Used with a cotton ball, of course.
Meanwhile, here is the Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Lotion. No, it's not a hand and body lotion. You use it on the face, just like your usual moisturizer.

(Full-sized bottle is 125mL, priced at 16900 Korean Won)
It has a lighter consistency, typical of most emulsions. It does a great job of keeping your skin soft and supple, and it smells like real mangoes, too.
Ready to rub! More like, apply and pat. :)
Finally we have the Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Facial Butter, a 'new concept facial butter' that contains 100% mango seed. Its creamy, buttery formula melts into the skin to completely replenish the skin and improve its elasticity. 
Creamy, buttery goodness!
(Full-sized jar is 50mL, priced at 22900 Korean Won)
This product boasts of keeping your skin moisturized for up to 36 hours, and I can pretty much attest to that. The mango scent is sweet and subtle, and lingers on your face for quite a bit. My only gripe is that in comes in a jar, and you very well know that I have a love-hate relationship with products that come in tubs and jars. 

All in all, trying these samples from the Mango Seed Skin Care Line have been a pleasant experience. I love that they're made from natural ingredients, cruelty-free and chemical-free, and they do exactly what they claim to do (ergo, moisturize the skin and make it radiant and glowing). Best of all, they're safe for sensitive skin (like mine). 

Will I go full size? Perhaps.
Let's just say there are bigger chances of me buying full-sized Mango Seed products here in the Philippines than me getting full-sized bottles of these. :)

How's the facial butter sis? Di ba nakakahilo pag ina-apply?

Animetric said...

I think of all the Korean brands The Face Shop is one of the few I have not yet tried. This line looks interesting... problem is I'm pretty sure it will be overpriced here. :/

I haven't been to Face Shop recently, would you know if this is available here in the Philippines? I love that it targets skin with poor elasticity because that's my major problem.

Franc said...

The product is the ultimate skin care product that can go with various skin types.

Kai Grafia said...

This looks like an amazing product. Does it smell like mango?

Unknown said...

Oh, I wish I could try this. I'm addicted to all skin care products, but can't do the fruit ones...too allergic.

MikiHope said...

Unfortunately I can not stand the smell or taste of Mango!! Otherwise this sounds like an almost perfect product.

Unknown said...

I had never heard of this brand before. These sound like excellent products!

Mommys Juice said...

Looks good. I love the mango smell too.

Unknown said...

I have been trying to stick to all-natural beauty products. Might have to give this brand a try and see how it stacks up to others I've used.

Chris said...

i wonder if after applying, would you have the mango scent too? :)

also, is it okay for sensitive skin?

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

I wonder why I never saw this product in Face Shop.. I wanted to try pa naman! Your hubby is so sweet! <3 I never tried anything mango for a product skin care line so I'd like to check them out. I totally agree. Korean products talaga is good for skin care - lalo na in makeup! <3

I'd love to try these, but I think I'll just wait for a friend to go to Korea. Papabili nalang ako para as mura :D
