Etude House Skincare Haul

18.3.18

Hello! A little over a week ago I decided to stop by the Etude House in Itaewon to buy more skincare items. There were some products I was running low on, like sheet masks, and some new ones I wanted to try out. If you don't know, skincare is sort of my addiction. Okay scratch that, it is my addiction. My skin is acne and blemish-ridden and I am willing to try anything to clear it up. I didn't have a comprehensive skincare routine until around August of last year and that has put me behind on taking care of my skin the way I should have.

A few months before moving to Korea I began researching skincare products that would work well with my skin-type. Imagine my surprise when I found out South Korea was famous for its skincare industry. Well, one day, while we were still new to the city, my family and I decided to take a walk. Somehow we ended up in an underground shopping center not far from our hotel 🤷🏾‍♀️. While browsing I came across Etude House. It's bright pink sign lured me in; let me be honest, the only reason why I stopped was because of the pink sign. My eyes tend to search out my favorite color everywhere I go out of habit.

I actually wrote about the products I bought that day in my very first skincare routine post. Fortunately the products were more than just pretty packages and Etude House became my favorite beauty store. This time around I decided to try out some new treatment products. Before I proceed I want you to know that this is all my personal opinion on products I have actually tried and I am not being paid for this.

Affordable skincare?! 

The great thing about Etude House products is their affordability. Skincare products can get expensive and I knew when I was starting out that I did not want to spend much on something I had never tried before. With that said, Etude House products are not cheaply made. So far, none of the items have caused me to have an allergic reaction. Their products go on smooth and their fragrances do not smell artificial.

Plain Cotton Pads (A.K.A. handheld clouds)

These cotton pads feel like clouds on my face. One problem I had with the cotton pads I previously used is that they often contained scratchy bits of cotton that would tear at my skin. Yeah, I didn't like that. Now with these, my toner goes on smooth and without irritation. The box contains 80 pads I believe.

Toning White C Double Effect Sleeping Pack

First off, for those confused as to what a sleeping pack is: basically it is an overnight face mask that you rinse off in the morning. This sleeping pack contains Vitamin C to brighten skin and minerals to hydrate. It has a gel like consistency that absorbs into your skin and locks in the moisture. I apply this as the last step in my night-time routine and wash it off first thing in the morning. My face feels hydrated and fresh. Beware, a little goes a long way.

Sunprise Bye Sebum Sun Stick SPF 50

Sun care is a must to protect your skin. Especially if your skin burns easily or over produces melanin. General sunscreens can sometimes cause an allergic reaction to the face which can be avoided by using a facial sun block. The Bye Sebum Sun Stick comes as a solid, retractable stick to make sun protection on the go easy. Once applied to face it mattes your skin for several hours. As a girl with a constantly oily T-zone this is a miracle. One thing to note is that it goes on sort of pale pink, but in a few minutes changes to match your skin tone.

Watermelon Soothing Gel

I have not tried this product yet, but I got it for free so, yay! It says you can use it on any part of your body and it has a delicious watermelon scent. This will definitely be used in the summer. Once I try it out I will write a longer review.

 Sheet Masks...

... Sheet Masks Galore!

Note: The set linked above contains 15 different sheet masks. I have not tried all 15 that come in the set, but at less than $1 each I find it a bargain.

My favorite part of the night is choosing which sheet mask to use. I have them in a container that I search through until one catches my eye, it makes me feel fancy. In store the Etude House here is running a buy 10 get 10 free deal and let me tell you, it is worth it. Last trip I picked up Strawberry, Aloe, Hyaluronic Acid, Tea Tree, Snail (yes, I know), Camellia, Damask Rose, Blueberry, Pearl, and Lemon. Whew, that was a long list. Since it was buy 10 get 10 I got two of each. So far I've tried the Tea Tree, Lemon, and Damask Rose sheet masks. The Lemon and Rose masks smell like candy. What I like about these masks are a) they're thin and breathable which soothes the skin, b) they are soaked in enough essence for two masks, and c) there is no c 😋.

There it is, in all its glory, my Etude House skincare haul. I plan for these to last me a few months, at least. Right now I am watching to see if the sleeping pack can deliver on the brightening part as it has the moisturizing part down pat.
