에뛰드하우스 수분가득 콜라겐 크림 리뷰 Etude House Collagen Moisture Cream [SET] Review~❤

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

Such pretty packaging too right? Looks sooo lovely- sweet & quite professional~ Let's first review. . .

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!~

From Etude House:-
30% Pure Collagen
- Difference of collagen quality!
- Marin Collagen extracted from uncontaminated areas of the sea, promising abundant moisture and elasticity to your skin
2. High-content of real baobab tree
- Sufficient nutrition of baobab tree keeps your skin growing.
3. Hypoallergenic
- Skin-friendly ingredients

Formulated with Baobab Leaf Mucus & 30% of hydrolyzed Marine Collagen, this refreshing, yet concentrated moisturiser penetrates deeply to hydrate & firm for a youthful, water bouncy skin.
4-Free Formula : No Parabens, Benzophenone, Mineral Oil, Talc.

Suitable for all Skin-Types
- Can be used on body

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
Without flash
This sheer, peachy coloured cream is like a thick yet lightweight gel~  - A small amount goes a long way guys
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

Right click - New tab to enlarge.
As you can see, the cream definitely holds it shape - It gives you an idea of how thick it might be on skin~

 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.

(Or try this other Etude House method):-

On my Face

Right click - new tab to enlarge
First photo - Dull & tight feeling skin (I have dry skin)
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
 Apply that mixture for refreshing, porcelain, dewy skin like those Korean Idols!~

As shown:-

Tips from Etude:-

Not available in UK 

Also available for more Moisture - Etude House Collagen Moistfull Enriched Cream
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.

Contains 20ml

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. 

On my Face

Right click - new tab to enlarge
First photo - Bare skin
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
Smells nice
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.

  1. Oh, super cute! I really want to buy the moistful collagen cream collection but, as you mentioned, there are 7 products in this line and I don't know what they do... I mean, I know what a cream is, the mist and the eye cream of course but for example the First Essence, Facial Freshener, Essence, Emulsion... I don't know what they do... could you please help me, because I've been looking for it but I can't find it anywhere xD

    1. Oh!~ ❤ (○´∀`○) The First Essence is a serum to help your skin get an instant deep penetrating hydration & it lifts/tightens your face.
      The Facial Freshener is a toner to remove residue from your pores while giving your skin a radiant revitalizing glow.
      The Essence is a richer serum that has ceramide capsules to give deep moisture & collagen to really give your skin elasticity a boost~
      The Emulsion is a moisturiser! a concentrated moisturiser to increase health & moisture levels to the skin. It improves skin texture,tone & elasticity while reducing fine lines~
      Each Moistfull Collagen product increases our Collagen sythesis
      I hope this helped!~ ❤

    2. Thank you! It´s really helpful~~!
