[Review] The Face Shop's mini pet perfume hand cream

Hey guys, I'm back with another review. This time, I'll be reviewing The Face Shop's mini pet perfume hand creams - in 2 scents, "sweet" and "floral"!~

Aren't they absolutely adorable? 


The packaging is adorable - it's what made me go crazy over it!~ There's currently 4 different versions of the hand creams, so you can pick out different, unique ones to fit your own tastes.

[There's the kitty, bear, monkey and hamster/bear/puppy]
I have no idea what the last one is, so yeah.

Although the bottle part is adorable, the product doesn't come in an outer box. So if you're planning to give this one as a gift, well, no box. There's just a little plastic wrap around it, that's all! It doesn't detract any cuteness though, so that's just a very minor thing.

Mini Pet Sweet is described as having a "fruity floral" scent.

You've got to twist the kitty's head off to get to the product inside - when you first open it, there's a little clear film over the bottle.

It's not a sticker, so you don't have to peel it off. Just a tiny flick of a finger will do. I don't really get why TFS did that, though. I see no point in having a flimsy seal, if it's not going to seal the product in...?

And on the bottom of the bottle are the product's information. 

- "Lovely me:ex"
- Mini pet perfume hand cream

- 30mL
- The Face Shop
- Made in Korea
- Expiration date: 2015/ 09/ 04 (2015/09/15 for "sweet")

You can flip the sticker, and it opens up to have some more information, mostly about the product's ingredients.

(Lowest) on eBay: $6
In North American stores: $8-13

The product: 

Basically, people buy this product just for its adorable packaging. There aren't any "WOW!" properties of the hand cream that make it stand out, and worth buying. 

It's got no anti-aging claims, no sun protection, etc. It's just a simple hand cream that smells very nice. Ideal for a young person, or someone who just loves cute stuff.
Note: Both of the hand creams, "floral" and "sweet" are white in colour. 

I took a little dab of the product and applied it to my wrists. Surprisingly, the smell lasts for quite a long while. It's not heavy nor is it sticky, and leaves a very nice scent that goes strong for a couple of hours, actually!

Between the "floral" and "sweet" scents, I'd have to say that floral is better. It's got a light, pleasant, flowery smell to it. It's got a stronger scent than "sweet", though. The smell reminds me of flowers (really nice flowers), and all that good stuff.

"Sweet" has a lighter scent - it would be good for people who only want a FAINT scent on their hands.  It doesn't really remind me of "fruity florals". It smells like grandma perfume, actually. (I have no idea how to describe that so yeah...)

Nicely absorbed! 

- Isn't sticky or heavy
- Not oily
- Smells nice
- Small and cute bottle, very portable
- Bottle is hardy (will not break if you drop it)

- If you apply too much, it will get oily, greasy and have a overpowering smell. If you don't go crazy over this and smear it all over yourself, you'll be fine.


I would repurchase this product if the price was $4 (or less).
Anything more than that is overpaying for it, and I wouldn't recommend it if you had to buy it for $6+. 

It's an adorable, lovely smelling product. But with that $6+, you can find yourself a hand cream that actually does wonders, and a lot of it. Aveeno has a really good oatmeal one that comes in a HUGE pump bottle that costs around $7.
