The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner is from a “Mango Seed Line” dedicated solely to Dry Dull Skin! It aims to refine skin texture and add radiance to under nourished skin. The Bi-phased toner adds both hydration and nourishment to skin! This sound so appealing? Isn’t it? Because it did to me!!😑 I was so mesmerised by the fact that finally I am gonna have dewy radiant skin, the dream of every women!!  😍 but let me break the bubble!! This ain’t gonna happen!! Why? Read on!! 😯

 

Skin Type:

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner is best suited for Normal to Dry Skin only.

Not Suitable for:

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner is not suitable for Oily skin and combination skin. If the skin has issues of acne or sensitivity, just skip this product!! 😑

 

 

Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis: 

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner

This looks like an amazing ingredient list. So many amazing essential oils and they are non-comedogenic. As, per from Cosdna Analysis, only “Algin” is the only potential skin irritant and rest are clear from any issues. But again one thing concerns me is that the marketed ingredient “mango extract” and “mango seed butter” are nowhere seen on first half of the ingredient list but instead clubbed with other essential oils. Maybe I am being little pesky!!! 😕

In Spite of this green flagged list, my skin was bit irritated!! Initially the things went well for almost a week, then all went haywire!!  I started breaking out! So I gave it a break, stopped and then used again but no again it irritated my skin. So, in the end I started using a Hand Lotion! I don’t know what went wrong with this product! Maybe it’s too rich for sensitive skin! 🤷

 

 

How to use:

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner is to be used at the first step of skincare routine!

  • Before using, shake it well to mix the Bi-phased solution!
  • Do not use it on cotton pad, instead dispense 2-3 pumps of product on hand and pat it on skin!
  • The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner is suitable for Day and Night Skincare Routine.

If you are planning to use it in your skincare routine, I will suggest to keep it simple, because the toner is way too thick than conventional Toner. I will suggest following products:

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner > Innisfree Orchid Eye cream > Cosrx Oil free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion 

You may use any other cream or  face lotion of your choice but keep it simple.

 

Packaging: 

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner comes in a sleek cylindrical platic transparent bottle with pump type dispenser. The cap is very similar to that of The Face Shop White seed serum. The packaging is simple and functional! 👌

Again the dispenser and cap is very much like the essence or Serum Bottle.

 

 

Expiry Period: The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner has an after opening expiry period of 12 months.

Quantity: The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner comes in 150 ml quantity.

Price: I purchased The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner from Amazon India for $17.50. It is also available on different korean website:

Consistency/Texture/Fragrance:

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner has a lotion like consistency. It’s very thick for a toner! It has the bi-phase system with watery part for providing skin Hydration and moisturization, and the milky part for skin softening.

It has a moderate sweet floral fragrance, that lingers for quite long time. So, this can be a problem for few! The fragrance is good but it is bit strong! 🙅

Absorbability:

Even though The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner is thicker than common toner, it does get absorbed pretty quickly.

Conclusion:

I tried using The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner on face, but it reacted, so ended up using as a hand lotion and accordingly is my opinion for the product: 😖

Pros:

  1. Moisturizing and Nourishing.
  2. Free from many skin irritants.
  3. Paraben free.
  4. Alcohol Free.

 

Cons:

  1. Its way too thick for a toner.
  2. Irritated my skin.
  3. Strong fragrance.
  4. Too many oils, can trigger acne.
  5. Misleading Ingredients.
  6. Availability is an issue, but I am happy for this, as it is not a worthy product.

 

Do I recommend it? No! Its way to thick and can irritate most skin types. I would suggest using a sample first before buying the full size.

Will I repurchase? No! Never!

 

 

 

Rating: 1/5

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Toner has been a regrettable purchase. Even though the ingredients are good (maybe too good!😝 ), it kinda irritated my skin. I am glad that it’s actually not available on many website. For the price paid, many good products available.

If you have used any other product from this line, do share your experience in comment section below! I dunno what went wrong with all of my “The Face Shop” Purchases!! They were all disastrous!! Reacted on my dry and sensitive skin! I am not bashing the brand, it’s just that I had a bad experience with many of their products, but I do like their Sheet Masks and have shared my thoughts on Instagram Account!

Both “Innisfree” and “The Face Shop” are available in India on Nykaa (India Only) and because of my personal experience I prefer “Innisfree”, even though its bit costly  and rarely have any offer. It’s just my preference!! 🤷
