I have tried most of the products that have been released in this collection but I must admit, I did get tempted by the packaging and the charitable aspect from shopping this collection. I have not made up my mind if I will buy something. I also think there will be more releases in the near future by Etude House for Holiday 2014. I went crazy last year with the Princess Etoinette collection so hope they come up with something super cute like that again!

Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Body Wash and Body Lotion REVIEW

Hi everyone, how are you? I am doing great today and have been feeling a lot better. I think eating well and exercising definitely plays a role in our moods. Anyway, I am doing a 2 in 1 review of the Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look body wash and body lotion. I finished using both of these recently and want to review it before I forget! So read on to find out my experience with this bath range from Etude House!

etude house belle dress pretty look review

Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look – Body Wash, Body lotion

Etude House has a range of Belle Dress bath and body products which comes in 2 different fragrances – Fruity (Pretty Look) and Floral (Lovely Look). The Fruity fragrance products come in pink packaging while the floral ones come in purple. There are also corresponding Shower Colognes in this range but I have not tried them. Shower colognes actually comes in 5 forms –  Pretty Look (Pink), Lovely Look (Purple), Funky Look (Orange), Lady Look (White) and Marine Look (Blue). Enough of product info, let’s jump right into the review of the Pretty Look body wash and lotion!

Check out the full range of Belle Dress products by Etude House here.

Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Body Wash

Product: Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Body Wash

Claim: This perfumed body wash infused with  a sweet fruity fragrance produces a creamy lather which cleanses the skin and leaves a scent that linger all day!

Quantity: 300 ml (10.58 fl. oz.)

Price: 9000 KRW (~ 9$)

Etude House Belle Dress body wash comes in a beautiful frosted plastic packaging shaped like a ball gown in beautiful pastel shades and golden push-down dispenser. The bottle has a pretty vintage feel and looks beautiful displayed on a shelf/dresser. For the price, I think this product is suitable for special occasions!

The consistency of of this body wash is gel-like with a slightly thicker consistency. I love the fruity scent of this body wash, it lingers a little afterwards and makes my bathroom smell divine. I do notice a lot of lather with a loofah so I get a lot of “satisfaction” taking a bath with this. I don’t know what it is relation about the foam and the cleansing strength but it always feels that way. There is nothing special to report except for the smell and the lathering aspect of this body wash.

I definitely do not feel like this dries out my skin in any way but it is not a moisturizing body wash so I do need to follow up with a cream or lotion. Thankfully I picked up the Belle Dress Pretty Look Body lotion to use after this!

Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Body Lotion

Product: Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Body Lotion

Claim: This perfumed body lotion moisturizes the skin with a long-lasting fruity fragrance.

Quantity: 300 ml  (10.58 fl. oz.)

Price: 9000 KRW (~ 9$)

Etude House Pretty Look Body lotion is a perfumed body lotion which has a fruity fragrance. It comes in a translucent plastic pink bottle designed like a ball gown with a push-down dispenser. It is a rich body lotion and requires some time and effort for applying to the skin. It also takes a few minutes to be absorbed into the skin.

The scent of the body lotion lingers ling after application and definitely outlives the body wash. I would have liked this lotion to be lighter and fast-absorbing! I enjoyed using both of these products together. I prefer non-perfumed products for everyday use but love using perfumed products for special occasions.

Some ingredients of note for both the products are Grapefruit extract, Peach extract and Lemon extract!

Rating: 3.5/5

Recommend: Yes

Repurchase: Yes

These are not the everyday bath products for me but for special occasion and especially when I am going out, I like to use product that make me smell nice. Using a perfume is obvious but I think a perfumed body wash and lotion (specifically) add a lot to the last lasting power of the fragrance. I plan on keeping the bottles for some more time and re-fill these bottles with other plain-looking bath and body products!

Etude House Moistfull Flower Cream REVIEW

I have a huge list of Etude House products to be reviewed here on the blog and today I have decided to feature a cream that has saved my skin from getting parched in this weather – the Moistfull Flower cream. I had been trying out far too many skincare products all of 2013 and 2014 but now I have decided to stick to a few products that work for me before switching my skincare again. Read on to find out if the Etude House Moistfull Flower Cream has managed to stay in my skincare routine!

Review: 

The Moistfull Flower cream by Etude House was introduced to their Moistfull skincare line quite sometime ago. I picked up this face cream solely on the recommendation of the Etude House store owner (who is also a friend). While looking for skincare products to try, I explained my skin problems and he suggested I try this. Judging from the gel-like texture, I did not have high hopes from this face cream but still picked it up trusting his recommendation. And I was not disappointed!

This face cream is perfect for my combination skin which tends to get dehydrated very often. The consistency of the cream is light but once applied, it turns into a creamy elixir that quenches my parched skin! And you only need a tiny pea sized amount for the whole face and neck! And I can boldly say that the effect stays all day. On many days I have used this even at night!

I cannot guarantee that it will work for other skin tones but I should mention that this cream is by no means greasy or oily once it absorbs.

Etude House Moistfull Flower cream review

I was quite pleased with the performance of this cream on my skin and equally ecstatic after reading the awesome ingredient list! This is a paraben-free cream and contains some wonderful plant extracts – Baobab tree, Alcea Rose flower, Cherry Blossom flower, Golden Camomile flower, Indian Lotus flower extracts. So this really is a Moistfull “FLOWER” cream!

Since this is a skincare product, I know the packaging does not need to be a part of the review per say but just look at it! I mean the cute frosty glass jar with pink lid and the flowers on the packaging, need I say more? It’s a beauty! This cream tub comes with a spatula, taking this in the good books of the hygiene freaks. I do not always use it though ;)

Etude House Moistfull Flower cream – Ingredients

I also enjoy the floral scent of this cream which does not fade away immediately after use. It lingers and I like it. But I am sure this can be an issue for people with Hyper Sensitive skin. Fragrance is listed as an ingredient and so are two colors which make this cream not suitable for everyone. For what I usually look in skincare, I would have appreciated no added color to the cream but somehow I am not bothered by it at the moment. Maybe because my skin has not felt dry in weeks! If only I can find something like this for my hair :(

Rating: 4.75/5

Repurchase: Yes

Recommend: Yes

I have tried the Etude House Moistfull Aloe, Collagen and Super Collagen skin care products in the past few months in addition to the Nutrifull Shea Butter products but the Moistfull Flower cream is my absolute favorite! If this had SPF, it would have been my perfect day cream. But still lack of SPF and super moisturizing properties make this suitable as night cream too. And I plan on using it in the upcoming months as well to save my skin from getting dehydrated.

Etude House Milk Talk Shower Sponge REVIEW

This is just a quick post on what I think about the new Milk Talk Shower sponge. I don’t think this is the most important review post I am doing but I was really curious about these when they were launched, I got them and on the first day of using I formed my opinion. And I hope my review helps someone save 2 bucks. So anyway. These have been launched with the Milk Talk Body washes which come in 5 flavors – Strawberry Milk (reviewed here), Steam milk, Banana milk, Chocolate Milk and Apple Milk and they come with corresponding shower sponges (added cost of 2$). I got the Etude House Strawberry Milk body wash but ended up getting the Steam Milk shower sponge. Here is what I think about it!

etude house milk talk bath sponge review

Etude House Milk Talk Sponge

Product: Etude House Milk Talk Shower Sponge

Price: 2500 KRW (~2.5$)

Let’s just jump right into the review!

The shower sponges are not as popular as the bath lily and bath mitts. This shower sponges are cute to look at but are not the best for the skin in my opinion. It is not very soft when dry and even after getting drenched in water, it gets squishy but remains a little harsh for the skin.

Another thing is that since this a sponge, it takes a lot of time to clean this up (remove shower gel residue) after bath which I think leads to a lot of water wastage. I do not have very sensitive skin but this felt relatively harsh on the skin making it not suitable for everyday use for me. I don’t think it is abrasive but it is still tough on the skin and maybe good for exfoliation. In my opinion everyday use may strip the skin of moisture and lead to drying.

And a small concern for me also is the round shape which makes it difficult to hold well and apply to the skin.

Another drawback is that there is no way to hang it to dry, it does not come with a string or anything. It can only be placed on top of the Milk Talk Body wash bottle. As you use up the shower gel, it gets difficult for the bottle to hold the sponge. I know these are not big concerns but I think it solidified my opinion about this product.

I liked the Milk Talk Strawberry Milk Body wash but ended up not liking the shower sponge. I have always been a fan of bath lilies!
