Review: Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream


Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream Review and Range
Review of the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream
Hello lovelies~ Today I'll be reviewing the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream, one of the top and best Etude House skincare sellers! I purchased this when I made an Etude House Global order (their international store) and I have a review and haul of Etude House Global products too if you are interested.

Etude House is a popular Korean makeup and skincare brand aimed at a younger target market. This means that their products are cheaper and their brand image more youthful and fun. F(x) Krystal is currently their gorgeous face and model.

Brand: Etude House
Name: Moistfull Collagen Cream
Size: 75ml
Price: US$15
Where to buy Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream: Etude House Global, w2beauty (coupon available below), Jolse, eBay

Quick Overview: The Moistfull Collagen Cream keeps your skin hydrated and feeling like jelly. Even though the cream is soft and light, it can hydrate the skin all day, leaving your skin healthy - taken from the Etude House website.

Packaging:

The Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream is housed in a plastic tub with a gradient orange colour. I really like the orange theme running through the Moistfull Collagen line as it makes it easy to locate on my messy table. The tub feels very sturdy because the plastic is thick, the plastic makes up almost half of the body. It is a little see through so you can see how much product there actually is in comparison to the big body.

The label on the front of the tub is stuck on rather than printed so you can remove the label when you're done and have a nice body for your other creams. As well, included in the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream is a small spatula so you can get the product without dipping your fingers in and contaminating the cream, great for good hygiene!

Product:

 The cream contains super collagen water particles that is supposed to keep your skin hydrated all day. It promises:

"- 120 hours of Super Collagen™ water effect with proven experimental data
- Improvement on skin layers with outstanding hydrating level seen within 5 days
- Skin gloss lasts 12 hours after application" - taken from Etude House website

With the name "Moistfull Collagen Cream", you would expect the texture to be thick like a cream but in this case, it is not. The texture is very close to a cream and gel hybrid so it is very light, easy to apply and sinks into the skin quickly. It feels almost watery, most likely due to the "super collagen water particles". This is great for people who are looking for a summer moisturiser or something lighter. However, what I love about it is that even though it feels very light and absorbs quickly, it hydrates enough for the cold weather as well. I used this product when I was in Seoul, South Korea during the winter time and paired with a facial oil, this is great. It is the perfect all year around skincare moisturiser.

The cream itself has a slight orange tint but dries completely clear. When applied on to the skin, it feels very soft, supple and not at all sticky so you do not have to wait for a while before heading to bed (in case you rub the product off on your pillow). It has a fruity, refreshing scent that does not dissipate very quickly but I find it relaxing. In addition, this product has not broken me out.

You can use this product during the day or night as a last step moisturiser or mix it in with your foundation or bb cream to have a more dewy base. However, I do not find that the "skin gloss" lasts 12 hours after application.

In conclusion, I definitely recommend this product if you have an oily/combination/normal skin type but this moisturiser works for people with dry skin too. However you might need to use it in conjunction with another lotion/toner. If you have sensitive skin and do not mind fragranced products, you can give this a try too. The downside is that I tend to go through a tub of this very quickly but it has more product than regular moisturisers (30-50ml) so I can't complain too much.

How to Spend your Australian Summer Break!




How to Spend Summer Break

It is currently summer here in Australia and most university students are on break. When you think summer break, what is the first thing you think of? For me, it would definitely be any activity that involves the water! 

Australian beaches are famous around the world for the beautiful sand and clear waters. However, when you’re looking for a water park to spend the hot sweltering summer days, there are only a few (which is surprising since Australian summers get extremely hot). So what do you do when you’re looking for fun ways to spend your time by the water? Why not try to build your own water games?

Inflatable Zone reached out to me to write about their products right in time for the Australian summer break! So if you’re interested in how to make your summer extra fun, read on below for the products you can buy. You can enjoy any of these products if you have access to a pool, river or lake! I’m not sure if you are allowed to bring these to the beach though so make sure to check with the council before you do.

For water games, my recommendation is this inflatable jumping air bag!

Summer Water Game: Inflatable Air Bag Blob Jump


This inflatable jumping air bag is very common during the summer and can be seen used throughout the year as well on school camping grounds, resorts and water parks! A game that used a similar jumping air bag was featured on a popular South Korean variety show called Running Man. What you do is have someone sit near the end of the bag and have another (I would recommend a heavier person for a higher bounce) jump on to the other end of the bag. The result would have the first person flying into the air! In this photo, you can see the women in the air on the right side. I have never played this game before but it looks like a great thrill. Remember to always wear a life jacket though and always follow through with safety procedures to make sure this activity is fun and safe.
The size of this specific one is 8 metres by 3 metres and can come in different colours if requested.

For more information on the Inflatable Zone Blob Jump check out the link and feel free to check out more water blobs and buy water blobs here.

These fun inflatable water blobs is also a great way to get your friends and family outdoors and moving, rather than staying still on the computer all break long. It’ll make for amazing memories and a great time!

Inflatable Zone also has a YouTube channel for you to see the products in real life, allowing you to see the quality that they offer.

My next post will be a long awaited Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream review. Stay tuned!

Until next time, annyeong~
