Etude House Collagen Moistfull Skin Care Line Review
Here's a review on Etude House Collagen Moistfull skin care line.
Price: P3,300.00+ for the set
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Etude House boutiques
I will forever remember Etude House because of this skin care range: Collagen Moistfull. I've had less-than-stellar skin months before using this line and it has improved by a huge lot when I started using it. In fact, it's the skin care range that reinforced in my head that Hydration, truly, is the game changer for skin; it even taught me a good habit and that is to keep my skin hydrated at all times. I have many, many good things to say about this product so let me not spoil it here at the intro. To start, what I will say is if you have normal, oily, and combination oily/normal skin that looks unhealthy and needs a hydration boost, this nourishing range will be your best friend.
ETUDE HOUSE COLLAGEN MOISTFULL SKIN CARE IN DETAIL
Collagen Moistfull is a moisturizing and hydrating skin care range. Features 30% Pure Marine- derived Hydrolyzed Collagen and extracts from Baobab Tree, which is known to be the "Tree of Life" due to its intense hydrating properties. Aside from Hydration, Collagen Moistfull also promises to supply Collagen to the skin and is Paraben, Talc, Mineral, Benzophenon- free, hypoallergenic; it is apparently one of the well- loved Korean skin care lines all over the world.
The products are either sold separately or as this set. The set is around P3,000.00+ and features the following: Facial Freshener, Emulsion, Cream, Ampoule Essence, and Sleeping Pack. There are travel- sized versions of the Facial Freshener, Emulsion, Ampoule Essence, and Cream too. What I'm missing here are the eye cream and facial wash. I learned that this range has other products as well such as first essence, essential massage, essence, BB Cream, and CC Cream, but I don't think they're available in the Philippines (except the CC Cream).
I believe this is a limited edition set, but I still saw it in an Etude House store sometime last month. Just inquire to know about its availability.
Read all about this superbly nourishing, renewing, and hydrating skin care range after the jump.
Etude House Collagen Moistfull Facial Freshener
- A mild toner that claims to supply skin with Collagen and keeps it firm, hydrated, and fresh.
Some will argue that this product is an essence, some will say it's a toner. I do believe it's the latter, but only in a thicker, much moisturizing form. It removes deep- seated dirt, does not sting, immediately takes away the tautness caused by cleansing, and prepares my skin for the rest of my routine. It's just so hard to take it out of the bottle that I had to remove the holed stopper from the mouth of the bottle to make my life easier.
Etude House Collagen Moistfull Emulsion
- A light, hydrating moisturizer.
This milky moisturizer absorbs fairly quickly into and leaves a dewy barrier on the skin, but I do think it's more perfect for oily, combination oily/normal, and normal skin types than dry skin. By the way, this is the biggest moisturizer I have ever seen and it will probably take me more than a year to finish it. I've been using it for 7 months now and I still haven't used it halfway.
Etude House Moistfull Collagen Ampoule Essence
- Promises to provide long- lasting, deep moisture to the skin, claims to improve elasticity, and has wrinkle- improving effects.
This watery gel essence counts as Serum in my books; it is so light and refreshing, and the unique formula helps it stay longer onto my skin; However, a cream/moisturizer would still be needed to seal it in.
Etude House Collagen Moistfull Cream
- A rich cream that deeply moisturizes and promises to restore elasticity and promote hydration longer.
This cream has a unique bouncy texture and I think it will suit dry skin types. It's very concentrated and just like the emulsion, it's something that you won't be able to use up in one year. Between all the Collagen Moistfull products, this one has the most opaque consistency and it may break out some individuals, especially those with really sensitive skin.
Etude House Collagen Moistfull Sleeping Pack
- Seals in all of the Collagen Moistfull products on your skin while providing additional elasticity- improving and deep moisturizing effects.
I only used this product once because I realized, my fondness for Sleeping Packs is just fleeting. It used to be fun, until I realized that pillow streaks are nasty. What I remember with this product is it settles onto the skin quickly, but just like most sleeping packs, it makes you feel that there's a filmy sheet on top of your skin and it stains pillow cases. :p

ETUDE HOUSE COLLAGEN MOISTFULL SKIN CARE LINE IN ACTION
Two months after using Collagen Moistfull Line
I took this photo right after waking up and exactly on my second month of usage of this line. Two months before this photo, I had pretty troubled, unhealthy skin: zits dispersed all over my face, dryness on the sides of my nose and lips, and overall, my skin tone looked dull. In the first month, my skin's tone and texture have somewhat improved, although I still had a couple of zits. By the second month, my skin has improved big time and I noticed that my breakouts have gotten infrequent. Overall, my skin got healthier, looked more plump, and had this eternal dewy look.
While using this line, I'd still get a zit or two and I would use my preferred spot treatments to treat them. Please note that this line and any hydrating skin care range in general, I believe, can only make your skin resilient, but it doesn't make it immune to bacteria and should not be considered as replacements for acne treatment, especially for severe acne.
So what can I say about the Collagen claim? Nothing because first of all, I do not know what Collagen looks like so I did not really "see" and "feel" if the products in this range had this skin protein. Second, Collagen molecules are too big to penetrate the pores so I find this claim rather strange.
Despite the hydrating and moisturizing claim, I do believe that this range is much more suited to oily, combination oily/normal, and normal skin types due to the consistency of the products.
Plain and simple, Collagen Moistfull is just a superbly hydrating range, which is sometimes enough to keep the skin healthy--it's perfect for you if you want to rejuvenate your skin given that you don't break out from it. I also love the fact that for only 3k, you get an entire skin care set whereas with other boutique skin care brands, that's the price for a serum only. Through Collagen Moistfull, I've proven to myself once again that hydration is the difference- maker for the skin and most of the time, what's simple is what works.
