As a beauty journalist it is my duty to try and test almost every skincare and beauty products that you could find online and offline—my job is to make readers (like you) life easier. And honestly speaking, I am not a whiz when it comes to Korean or Japanese beauty brands. I have a combination skin concern, sometimes heavy on the oily side. So you see, Korean and Japanese brands aren’t really my pick due to the fact that most of these Asian beauty companies often offer hydration solutions that are suitable for people with dry skin and eczema. 

However, recently, I grew curious and finally threw myself into a huge beauty splurge around the Korean beauty market. Surprisingly, one of their top skincare brands, The Face Shop, really impresses me to the fullest. What caught my eyes was, this superior brand has gone through its ups and downs to meet their goals in offering the best value in naturalism aka clean beauty and variety in choices. For those of you who prefer only natural-based products, The Face Shop is all that and more. They only used the best traditional ingredients of herbs and extract. So yes, every drop of its texture is really worth every penny. 

I decided to gather some of the best-selling products from this big brand that every woman and man should own at least once in their lifetime because if you don’t, you really missed… big time. Without further ado, checkout 9 of best products from The Face Shop that obviously deserve its own standing ovation from Beauty Insider

Get To Know The Face Shop Brand

As everyone is aware, The Face Shop first originated in Korea somewhere around the year of 2003. The brand then quickly spread all over the world after being recognized as one of the top Asian brands in Australia and Canada. By the year of 2014, this brand received over a billion of loyal customers sworn oath by this powerful company. They later established their own company labeled R&D Innovation Center.

Until now, this beauty brand from the Land of the Morning Calm has garnered more than a billion whirlwinds, reviews and fans over its brilliant range of skincare offerings. But that’s not all though, their logo which represents the Goddess of Beauty, Demeter symbolizes perfectly to their belief that beauty should be timeless, and clean, safe, organic elements are the only safest thing to ensure your beauty stays in tack. See, I told you The Face Shop really embodies and holds tight to everything that they create and possesses.
