Review: Etude House’s Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack in Black Tea

Etude House’s Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack in Black Tea

Leave it to Etude House for always having the cutest packaging.  How adorable is this sleeping pack?  It’s a mini bubble tea!  As a bubble tea addict, I knew I had to buy this just for the packaging!  I bought mine from Pretty & Cute for about $13.

I’ve tried multiple sleeping packs, but this is my first one from Etude House.  Their bubble tea line comes in three different “flavors”: green tea, strawberry tea, and black tea.  Each “flavor” is geared towards a different skin issue.  I’ve attached Etude House’s explanation of how to use and what each different flavor is for.

My first thought was that it smelled overly artificial sweet.  I think it can be nauseating at times so this is definitely not the product for a sensitive user.  While the packaging is cute, it can be a bother that the bubbles are all the way at the bottom.  It’s just a messy situation using the spatula to try to scoop the bubbles up.  I only use the bubbles when my skin is a bit drier than usual.

Overall, I thought this product was disappointing.  Yes, it’s cute.  But is it highly moisturizing?  No, I don’t think it’s anything special.  In fact, I find it tacky/sticky on my skin.  And the smell disgusts me.  It hasn’t broken me out though.  Squishing the bubbles are an unnecessary step in my opinion.  I don’t notice the bubbles adding any extra moisture and it can be difficult to squish.  I do notice it stings my skin at time when I’m drier than usual.  I would not repurchase this and am not interested in trying out the other kinds.  I’ll use this up and that will be the end of trying out these bubble tea sleeping packs.

Pros

  • Spatula
  • Cute packaging

Cons

  • Strong fragrance
  • Messy
  • Stings skin
  • Sticky/tacky
  • Nothing special about this product

Review: Etude House’s Tint My Brows Gel

Etude House’s Tint My Brows Gel in #1 Brown

Peel off makeup is one of the latest trends in Korea.  I’m a bit late on the game.  It first started off with the famous peel-off lip tints and then moved on into the brows.  I found the concept interesting because I didn’t want to deal with doing my brows on a daily basis.  Etude House’s Tint My Brows Gel is sold for $10 on Memebox.

YesStyle Haul

I’ve known about YesStyle for years since it is known for being the sister-site to YesAsia.  I never expressed an interest in ordering from them though until recently.  I spent a bunch of money on kpop albums on YesAsia, so I was given some coupons for YesStyle.  And I figured it would be a good time to use it.

Review: Etude House Moistfull Collagen Eye Cream

Etude House’s Moistfull Collagen Eye Cream

After finishing my Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream, I have been testing out this new one, the Etude House’s Moistfull Collagen Eye Cream.  I’m a huge fan of Etude House’s cute and girly packaging.  I’ve only tried their makeup so this is my first time trying a skincare product from them.  I got this on sale from Memebox.  I believe I only paid $11 for it when it’s normally $15.

The Moistfull Collagen line is geared towards plumping up your skin with anti-aging properties.  This eye cream is advertised as plumping thin/saggy skin under the eyes to smooth any fine lines and wrinkles while providing moisture!

My first impression of this eye cream formula was whoa!  This is thick!  The container was packed to the rim of a thick light orange cream.  I love how it’s completely full with product-I hate opening a container to find it’s only half full.  It takes some effort to take some cream from the container.  I can tell this is going to last me a long time because a little goes a long way.

This eye cream would be great for sensitive users.  I detect no fragrance and it doesn’t sting like other eye creams.

As for how it works, it keeps my skin well-moisturized.  I see no dry patches under my eyes when I apply makeup.  I don’t have any fine lines or wrinkles so I can’t vouch for that aspect of the product.

I am quite pleased with this product.  I don’t know if I ‘ll continue to purchase this because I want to try out new products.  I do recommend this for those who have sensitive skin and want to take care of the sensitive skin under the eyes!

Pros

  • Moisturizing
  • Good value
  • No scent-great for sensitive users

Cons

  • May be difficult to find

Approved!
