Hey guys~ I'm back with a skincare review on the still raving Collagen Moistfull Cream set!
I have always been curious of this cream & decided to buy it (´ ▽ ` )ﾉ Mostly because I could resist the packaging but in all serious-ness; it sounds really promising!
Oh & also. . .
. . . yeeeeah. . . guilty sorrynotsorry. . . NO REALLY I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF~ （ ；´Д｀）
That is one of the major reasons why I purchased it & also because I have quite dry skin that gets painfully tight without moisturiser.
Original Etude price:- 15,000원
I purchased this for £14.93 on Cosmetic.Love which I think is not that bad~ especially as you get a mini First Essence~(○´∀｀○)
There is 7. . . Yes 7 products to the Collagen Skincare Regimen:-
First Essence - Facial Freshener - Essence - Firming Eye Cream - Emulsion - Cream - Facial Mist
Such a cute packaging right? Such refreshing & pretty orange *-* It looks smart but still manages to look sweet~ (○´∀｀○) Can you see why I fell in love & gave in to buy it?ㅋㅋㅋ
The Collagen Moistfull Cream!~~
The product that got 2nd Rank in GET IT BEAUTY for moisture & is still raving to 'Best Item' on Etude House website~
I loooove the little pot packaging & eeeeek~~~ (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ so cute!~

No parabens & all skintypes! The idea of water, bouncy skin sounds so nice *-* I want to achieve!
Contains 60ml worth product - Quite an amount!~ - It's quite a small pot too so I think great for traveling~
Fill right to the top! *0* - Shame there is not spatula so I have to dip my fingers in the pot ㅠㅠ It might not be very hygienic.
Also I have long nail so the product gets under them! =3=
The Cream itself - Texture
It's very refreshing to touch & almost has a 'bouncy' texture when not swatched out. When swatched out; it spreads like watery-lotion that is even more refreshing & cool~
It smells so niiice! It has a fresh citrusy scent to it that gradually dissipates when on skin. It's not too strong/overpowering. (it makes me want to eat it)
The smell reminds me of citrus shower gels or pure orange lollipops :33

When I swatched out the cream, I immediately felt a beautiful cooling sensations like cool water on my skin!~ *-* It should feel great on sensitive skin~~
It's consistency does not run or feel sticky. It spreads so smoothly & evenly across my hand~
It did not take long to absorb into my skin.
Look at that glow!
After the product fully absorbed, I was amazed at how moisturised & smoother my hand felt & looked! I feel that it really penetrated in the skin~
|Before & after|
I loved the dewy 물광 effect it gave my hand - The cream only left a tiny bit of a residue. It's not oily but it just feels like I had a little bit of water dampened on my hand.
I think the residue left over depends on how much cream I apply. If I apply bigger amount, it makes me skin feel sticky but not unbearable stickiness! It only feels sticky to touch - you cannot feel it on your face.
Directions:- Every day after cleansing & toning, massage evenly over face. Pat to finish.

Second Photo - I dotted on the Collagen Moistfull Cream lightly across my cheek.
When I dotted on the cream in the second photo, I immediately felt the refreshing, cooling effects of the cream on my skin - it feels sooo nice.
After I fully blended the cream by patting my face (it absorbed quite quickly), the tightness of my face went straight away.
It really moisturised my skin better than most moisturisers I've used & it did not feel heavy at all!
It only left a little bit of residue when is like I mentioned; only slightly sticky but barely noticeable.
It relieved some peeling I get on my cheeks & made my skin look & feel dewy & a bit more healthy.
I looooove how bouncy & kind of firm (good firm) my skin feels after application & how softer & cool it felt too~ - So true to product claims!
I love this cream already. . . *fell in love*
The Etude House Collagen Moistfull Cream is multi-use! You can use it on your hands, arms, legs - anywhere!~
I use it also for a more dewy makeup base by mixing with BB cream:-
|I mixed the cream with my Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit - Light Beige|

Etude House Collagen Moistfull First Essence Review~
Lastly the sweet little vers. of the First Essence~
Equally cuuute design like of the cream~~
Formulated with 90% of hydrolyzed Marine Collagen, this serum absorbs quickly into skin to provide instant hydrating & firming relief.
90%?! wooooah~~ I have quite dull skin due to dry type & lack of sleep/diet so I definitely need this little one~
Very watery! You don't understand my struggle of trying to snap that photo without it running down my arm ㅎㅎㅎ
Like the cream, I immediately felt the cooling effects of it~ I actually thought it would be like oil but nope~ definitely a watery one!
Citrus again!~ nom nom
Omg I only just noticed my nails match the product lololol.
The consistency as aforementioned & can be seen is very watery & thin~ It should absorb nicely into our skin!
Aaah~ the cooling effect~
It spreads out easily though its rather obvious because it's runny (silly KeiKei)
The essence took a little while to fully absorb but when it did; it left my hand looking only slightly dewy & feels quite hydrated.
Though it does not look it, it does feel sticky (sort of clammy?) - a lot more than the cream. Luckily the First Essence is the first step.
I feel it does tighten & make my skin appear & feel soften & smoother~~
Direction:- Apply morning & evening after cleansing, prior to Facial Freshener, Pat to finish.
I'm not very sure if its best to apply by cotton pad or fingers but for this review, I'll use my fingers. Othertimes I'll use this Essence, I will use a cotton pad as its so runny.

Second Photo - Dotted on (with much difficulty LOL)
I patted in the First Essence with my hands~ It took a while to fully absorb but it's alright.
I felt this essence really did give a hydrating film to my skin - I say film because it's sticky.
It relieved my tight skin leaving it feel firm & comfortable. It did give a slight glow but it dissipates after about half an hour but the moisturising effect lasted ages on its own.
I feel it did brighten my complexion a little bit so I will carry on with this First Essence because together; with the Collagen Moistfull Cream - It feels SOOO NICE!~ My skin never felt so fresh & moistfull & so comfortable!~~
Cute, handbagable bottle- Good for traveling
Watery liquid gives good moisture, refreshing effects on skin.
Effects last long & gives skin some firming relief.
Works amazingly with the Collagen Cream
Leaves sticky residue
Takes a while to absorb
Oh if you are interested, I did a blotting paper test to test the stickiness of both products:-
I will update my experience using both the First Essence & Cream
Update! 2 weeks of use:- I've used both the essence & cream twice a day everyday for 2 weeks. I feel that my skin looks much better! It looks considerably brighter & my peeling problems around my nose is almost gone. My skin has not felt so moisturised in ages!
I think my skin feels very firm (good firm) & a lot plumper & youthful too. I've no breakouts from this product so far.
