The Face Shop Le Marche The Therapy Essential Tonic Treatment & Essential Formula Emulsion

It's rare for me to review about skincare, huh? My face skin doesn't have big problem since birth, except at the first time I tried wearing makeup for everyday, 2 years ago, mostly because of wrong products. I had many pimples and my pores became bigger, even my sister could notice that. But just for a few months. After I found out what product caused me the disaster, I wouldn't put it on anymore, which is Etude House Secret Beam Powder Pact.

Even by now, I don't use too many skincare. I can put on Hada Labo lotion and night cream together for cheaper price. But my favorite is Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream with First Essence. This time, I got The Face Shop Le Marche The Therapy after purchasing from an online shop. Even though it's a sample, the bottle packaging is a luxury. Believe me, I never got any sample with this expensive-like packaging before.

For the advertisement and story about Le Marche The Therapy series, says that using the latest European blending formula-based skincare to delivers an excellent anti-aging effects on skin. Formulated with 200 years old natural blending therapy from Europe, "The Therapy" is bottled up with the sweat of Marches' very own hand-made manufacturing method. Marche is located in central-east of Italy (yeah I know, sinced I played Shadow Hearts II Covenant). This European base skincare line comes with four products from tonic treatment, formula emulsion, oil-drop-anti-aging serum and cream. It has Oriental medicine and hard-to-breath herbal smells. Why wrote it hard-to-breath? Because it smells like perfume. If the website means it has beautiful fragrance, for me, I don't really like strong smell on my face, or in a whole room.

The Therapy Essential Tonic Treatment
The anti-aging treatment is formulated with an essential ingredient that functions as a toner and booster to even out rough and flaky skin.

This tonic treatment has the strongest perfume smell out of the two with gold transparent oil color. But after a few seconds, the scent will disappear. I think it's not too sticky, just like Etude House Moistfull Collagen First Essence before putting the cream. But I don't think I will apply this alone, because it's a first step on skincare routine and used to boost the other products (including cream). I usually put tonic treatment first then followed by formula emulsion and Etude Moistfull Collagen Cream, because I didn't get the cream.

The Therapy Essential Formula Emulsion
This anti-aging emulsion leaves rough, uneven skin feeling supple and moisturized.

The texture is more milk-y than the tonic. It has scent too, but not too strong. A little bit sticky because it's like a moisturizing milk, but still understand-able. Oh well, I do feel hydrated after applying these two products, but I can't make sure if it's good to apply without the cream for night. Because I do feel the most important moisturizing product is a cream. Not that I don't like using lotion/serum first, but because I'm lazy. Oh but it's true. While serum is used to boost the power of cream, the cream itself can work alone fine, I think. But don't follow my method because I'm LAZY!! The two products are easy to wash in the morning.

So far, I don't find any amazing result, maybe because I used it with Etude Moistfull Collagen Cream, so I feel the same as always. Except that perfume-y smell, it's not worth to purchase the big bottle. But try it if you want, because the claims of usefull for anti-aging, which I do not believe. Hey, everyone will aged, right? It's worth to keep healthy skin, but stay natural.


  1. Which treatment is better for anti aging ,bot ox or fillers ,what are the side effects of these?Has anyone used this? How long did it take to see results?


  2. When applying a skincare cream to the area around the eyes, it may not absorb as well. As a result, the skin serum is ideal. Dermaplaning NYC
