FaceTory Urban Calm Skincare Collection Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

FaceTory Urban Calm Collection is a wonderful collection from FaceTory that is really worth knowing about. I have tested and reviewed the FaceTory Sheet Face Masks (HERE) and the FaceTory Cloud Velvet Restoring Sleep Mask (HERE), but their Urban Calm Collection is next level skincare! This gentle collection throughly cleans and moisturizes the skin, while helping to support the skin barrier. These wonderful products are cruelty-free, and made in Korea from the finest ingredients.

About Urban Calm,

Urban Calm Collection emerged with a concern for balance in a fast-paced, urban lifestyle. We believe in feeding skin with recharging ingredients that support the skin barrier and help the microbiome flourish.

Urban Calm formulations are thoughtfully crafted with powerful fermented ingredients to rebalance your skin barrier and microbiome. Backed by centuries worth of traditional Korean elements proven to benefit the skin.

FaceTory Urban Calm Gel Cleanser with Fermented Pear and LHA ($42.00 for 4 oz. from FaceTory and their Amazon Store): This is an ultra-gentle lightly lathering gel cleanser that thoroughly cleans the skin without stripping it, and leaves it very soft, smooth and hydrated. It has a very light and fresh herbal aroma, but it isn't long lasting or in the least bit cloying.

According to FaceTory,

The first step to protecting your microbiome. This gel cleanser purifies and cleanses the skin from dirt and other impurities, leaving it clean and refreshed. Carefully formulated with Fermented Pear and a blend of exfoliants like LHA, plant-based BHA, and Protease to gently exfoliate the skin while keeping it hydrated.

Directions: Wet skin with warm water and lather a dime-sized amount between your hands. Gently massage the lather to your face for at least 30 seconds. Rinse off and pat skin dry.

Ingredients: Bambusa Vulgaris Sap Extract, Water, Coco-glucoside, Lauryl Glucoside, Acrylates Copolymer, Lauryl Hydroxysultaine, Butylene Glycol, Benzyl Glycol, Sodium Chloride, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Arginine, Hedera Helix (Ivy) Leaf/Stem Extract, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Fragaria Chiloensis (Strawberry) Fruit Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Leaf Extract, Propanediol, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Lactobacillus/Punica Granatum Fruit Ferment Extract, Saccharomyces/Barley Seed Ferment Filtrate, Lactobacillus/Pear Juice Ferment Filtrate, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Lycium Chinense Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Morus Nigra Fruit Extract, Rubus Fruticosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) Fruit Extract, Vaccinium Myrtillus Fruit Extract, Citric Acid, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Allantoin, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Extract, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Leaf Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Extract, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Fruit Extract, Panthenol, Madecassoside, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Artemisia Annua Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Protease, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Saponaria Officinalis Leaf Extract, Glycine Max (Soybean) Seed Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Capryloyl, Salicylic Acid, Asiaticoside, 1,2-Hexanediol, Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate.

FaceTory Urban Calm Soft Essence with Fermented Seaweed and 5% Panthenol ($46.00 for 4 oz. from FaceTory and their Amazon Store): I always forget how satisfying it is to use a skin essence, and this one does not disappoint. It offers skin serious hydration after cleansing, and it plumps the skin– thanks to ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid– leaving it soft, smooth and supple. Furthermore, its anti-inflammatory ingredients soothe red and irritated skin, leaving it comfortable and pampered. It only has a hint of a fresh aroma, but it disappears immediately.

According to FaceTory,

This soft essence is the hydrating step right after cleansing and gives the skin a powerful burst of hydration. Carefully formulated with Fermented Seaweed and Fermented Cica, this essence plumps the skin by reducing moisture loss, protects skin cells from environmental damage, and soothes redness caused by irritation.

Directions: Apply 2-3 pumps on your face with patting motions to help skin absorb.

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Panthenol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Spirulina Maxima Extract, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Betaine, Lactobacillus/Centella Asiatica Extract Ferment Filtrate, Xanthan Gum, Allantoin, Sodium Phytate, Trehalose, Citric Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Chamaecyparis Obtusa Water, Centella Asiatica Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Gluconolactone, Sodium Citrate, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Beta-Glucan, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Flower Extract, Pinus Palustris Leaf Extract, Pueraria Lobata Root Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Ceramide NP, Cholesterol, Polyglutamic Acid, Asiaticoside, Madecassoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid.

FaceTory Urban Calm Vita Serum with Fermented Mung Bean and 10% Niacinamide ($46.00 for 1.01 oz. from FaceTory and their Amazon Store): This 10% Niacinamide serum is seriously effective. Niacinamide brightens dull skin, improves uneven skin tone, and as an effective anti-inflammatory ingredient, it reduces inflammation and redness. This is a perfect serum for people with sensitive skin, and just about everyone else, frankly! It is a very lightweight liquid that melts into the skin immediately, and it doesn't leave behind any sort of residue. Furthermore, there is no detectable aroma.

According to FaceTory,

This supercharged vita serum has a powerful dose of Niacinamide to really brighten and smooth out the skin. Carefully formulated with Fermented Mung Bean, this serum protects the skin from free radicals and UV damage.

Directions: Apply 2-3 drops all over your face and pat it in.

IngredientsWater, Niacinamide, Panthenol, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Citric Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Citrate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Lactobacillus Ferment, Vigna Radiata Seed Extract, Coptis Japonica Extract, Portulaca Oleracea Extract.

FaceTory Urban Calm Barrier Cream with Fermented Honeybush and Hyaluronic Acid ($45.00 for 1.59 oz. from FaceTory and their Amazon Store): This nourishing and hydrating barrier cream is a lightweight gel that immediately melts into the skin. It is formulated to deeply moisturize dehydrated skin, is gentle enough for very sensitive skin, and it leaves it smooth, soft, lifted and luminous. It has no scent, and it is a joy to use. It is very concentrated, and therefore a little bit goes a very long way. I take a less-is-more approach since so little is needed to do an exemplary job.

According to FaceTory,

This nourishing barrier cream relieves sensitive and dehydrated skin for a moisturized and dewy finish. Carefully formulated with Fermented Honeybush, this cream keeps the skin firm and smooth. It seals all the potent ingredients from your routine for a protected skin barrier.

Directions: A little goes a long way! Spread as much or as little as needed, all over the face and neck for moisturized and dewy skin.

Ingredients: Water, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Panthenol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Niacinamide, C14-22 Alcohols, Glyceryl Glucoside, Squalane, Betaine, (-)-alpha bisabolol, Shorea Robusta Seed Butter, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Tromethamine, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Allantoin, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Polygonum Cuspidatum Root Extract, Glucose, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Streptococcus Thermophilus/Cyclopia Intermedia Leaf/Stem Extract/Lactose/Whole Dry Milk Ferment, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Coccinia Indica Fruit Extract, Beta-Glucan, Amber Powder, Solanum Melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Pentylene Glycol, Ocimum Sanctum Leaf Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Alloferon-1, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide NP, Glutathione, Madecassoside.
