ETUDE HOUSE Collagen Moistfull Essence & Sunblocks Review

Remember those beauty products I bought from Seoul earlier this year? I finally got a chance to try them out and review them now.

One of my best buys is the above Etude House Collagen Moistfull Essence retailing at 15,000KRW in Korea.

Yes, you've guessed it! The reason why I like it is because at this extremely low price, I can still get a quality product that's effective. It's selling at about 40+SGD here but cost me less than 20SGD. The texture is a little sticky but it moisturize well and smells lovely. Sometimes, I use this essence before my moisturiser. Other times, I even use it on its own!

I've been trying out all kinds of sunblock and none has been satisfactory so far. Mainly, It's because I dislike the thick and slightly oily texture of sunblocks. And I prefer those with SPF50 and above. 

So far, Etude House Sun Power Cotton Touch with SPF50+ meets my expectations. It's meant to give a cottony finish with its thick and powdery texture. For starters, you may find it a little hard to apply and even out the thick sunblock. The trick is to thinly layer it on so that you won't look pasty with a purplish tinge to your skin.

Somehow, I think the purple tinge will play a part in toning down yellow skin tone. I think this sunblock is great and indeed less oily than most SPF50+ sunblocks in the market. By the way, I have combination skin.

As for the other Sun Toner Water Jelly SPF30 in the bottom half of the picture, the texture is similar to many other sunblocks and feels a little sticky to me. After application, I need to let it settle for at least 15 mins before putting on my foundation. I was attracted to this the Sun Toner Water Jelly because of its "Water Jelly" description. Also, all Etude House sunblocks were having a 1 for 1 promotion in Korea in mid June this year.

How cheap can they get??!! Heh!
