The Face Shop The Therapy Essential Tonic Treatment (Anti-Aging Formula) Review | European Blending Formula in Kbeauty

Annyeong, Everyone~
Hows everyone's Sunday?
As for me, I'm tired. First day of shark week made me like this...
I needed extra care and love.
I need Babe to carry me everywhere.
Feeling spoiled today.
Like any other day.

Have you guys heard of the 7 Skin Method? It is a method where you layer toner or essence(s) onto your face seven times for a plump, hydrated and glowing skin. Glow Recipe demonstrates how you can do the 7 Skin Method in the video below. The toner/essence used must be an appropriate one, for example, the Purpletale Setting The Scene Essence has the right consistency to use for the 7 Skin Method while using the Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol is the wrong product to use because it is an acid/active and layering it on your skin will just burn the hell out of it.

Anyway I am not required/paid to say the above. I just thought that this product that I'm reviewing is suitable for the 7 Skin Method.

The Face Shop The Therapy Essential Tonic Treatment

This anti-aging treatment tones, boost and evens out rough and flaky skin.

- Toner and treatment essence in one product

- Essential gel texture

- Marche Handmade Anti-Aging Blending Formula

How to Use

As the first step of the skincare routine, dispense a sufficient amount of the product onto a cotton pad and gently wip the face from middle outwards. Lightly pat the skin to absorb.

Dispense an abundant amount onto a cotton pad and massage onto face for one minute or two for a quick mask pack effect.

For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of the reach of children. Discontinue use if irritation and/or rash appear.



Void of: Surfactants, Silicones, Parabens, Acrylamide, Mineral Oil, Artificial Coloring, Animal Ingredients, Benzophenone, Triethanolamine, Sulfate

Information taken from The Face Shop Canada.

Notable Ingredients:

⇴ Sodium Hyaluronate - moisturizing
⇴ Honey Extract - soothing, anti-inflammatory, moisturizing, nourishing
⇴ Cacoa Extract - hydrating
⇴ Oat Extract - acne fighting
⇴ Olive Oil - moisturizes dry skin
⇴ Turmeric Root Extract - acne fighting
⇴ A number of Plant extracts for anti-oxidant


thick gel texture, doesn't really run
light yellow in color, must be due to the blend of ingredients since no colorings are added
has fragrance to it
the finish makes skin looking plump and hydrated for me who has an oily skin

My Thoughts

⇴ I don't really have faith in some The Face Shop products because I think they are mediocre BUT when I tried this, I am happy that it doesn't break me out(I have acne prone skin)! Despite being thick and made for aging skin since it is from their Anti-Aging skincare line
I think this is a good hydrating toner. I mentioned about 7 Skin Method earlier and I think for those with dry skin will enjoy doing the method with this toner
⇴ Again, I have an oily skin and I can't really implement the 7 Skin Method with this one. When my face is at its upmost oily, layering it THREE times is already enough to set my face for my night skincare routine. I do not need to further with essences, serums, gels etc
⇴ Anyway if you are using Acids, this toner isn't suitable to use before applying acids cause it is thick and the acid might have difficulty to penetrate into the skin


⇴ Provides hydration
⇴ I think it will replenish dryer skin types better since I don't have dry patches on my face
⇴ Doesn't break me out
⇴ Plumps up skin
⇴ No harmful ingredients


⇴ Might be heavy for oily skin types
⇴ Might be too perfumey for sensitive noses

My Final Thoughts

⇴ Overall it is a great hydrating toner BUT I don't see my oily skin benefit much from it. I wanted to use my acids too and implement alot of (light) skincare steps...
⇴ I think this toner will be appreciated more by dryer skin types, it will be a great and worthy skin treatment if you are okay with the little perfume smell and if your skin don't react negatively to it. I do like using this when my forehead gets unexceptionally dry and needed plumping *forehead wrinkles be gone*
⇴ I am fine with lightweight toners as for now. Maybe one day if I experienced Winter then I'll be quick to grab this toner

Annyeong, Everyone~ Fasting month/Ramadhan is coming to an end soon omg! I feel like this year is the fastest Ramadhan month that I am going through. Time. Flies. So. Fast.

Do you guys remember the popular OST C20 Vitamin C serum? If you never heard of it before you can check out my existing review on the product by clicking on the link below: OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum Review
I loved that product, I considered it as my HOLY GRAIL and I am happy to be able to use it again this year!
This Tiam My Signature C-Source is the renewed version of the OST Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum. This is because the brand OST C20 is rebranded to TIAM. As for the product, ONLY the product name has been changed while the ingredients and everything else stayed the same.

April Skin Magic Snow Cushion (Black) SPF50 PA+++ #23 Natural Beige Review We all have seen the most popular April Skin Magic Snow Cushion in the past few months, and its popularity is still ongoing until now. I am seeing their promotional pictures and videos literally everywhere, the product is claiming to provide a full coverage with just one layer. Immediate whitening, evening of skin tone and covering imperfections, who wouldn't want that? Of course, just like any other gullible person, I am intrigued by the promotional efforts and always eyeing on the cushio…
