Etude House: Collagen Moistfull First Essence Review

Ello everyone,

This is the last of the products I ordered for myself in April. I had been looking for a moisturizing cream for around my eyes and any fine lines . So, I bought the 3 step sample kit of Etude House Collagen Moistufull line from ebay, for about $5.00 with free shipping. (Sorry, I do not remember the ebay seller.) I'm reviewing them separately, so my post is not to long. Read on for my Etude House First Essence review.

Personal Experience:
  I have used this twice a day, for a little over a  month. I wash my face with Likas Papaya soap, and use this before my Etude House Wonder Pore toner. I follow it with the Moistfull cream under my eyes and on fine lines. This essence alone, works nicely. It is very light, so on days I wake up oily, I will wear this alone. I take a tiny amount and pat it into my skin.

 It feels like it traps that supple feeling you get after a facial. I like to leave this in a cool place, since it is getting warmer outside. That way, it is refreshing and cool on my skin.

 Acne Prone Skin Reaction?:
So far, my skin has been doing okay with this product. My cheeks are always having some type of pimple action happening. This I feel is more from eating habits.  I did have a break out start on my chin, but I think that was from always resting my chin in my hands, and the NYX concealer I have used... (but that is another review -_-*).

Any complaints:
 I don't really have a complaint, but if I had to choose one, it would be the consistency. It is a pro and a con, but the consistency of the essence is very watery. While the watery consistency causes a nice, light feeling on the skin, you might lose product every now and then. There were a few blurry eyed mornings where I lost product to the sink.                                    

Overall thoughts:
I love that I can use such a small amount, and get nice results. It is very cost efficient for a facial routine, specially since this is a 15ml bottle, that has lasted me over a month. So, a full sized one at 100ml , would last almost a year. I've seen the full size run from about $20-$25 dollars. It also comes as a pair, with the cream, at different price ranges.

 I want to love this, but I also want to try another brands essence, before deciding to add this into my permanent facial routine.

Overall Score:  

As always, thanks for reading!
