I’m thrilled to be able to start my new ‘Beauty review’ section with a very nice product! Most of you (in Europe) probably never heard of Etude House, but neither did I. I was lucky enough that my Japanese friend Eri got it for me when she was in Korea. *Thanks love!*
I’ve never really used hand creams before. Well, I tried some of my mom’s (she’s a daily user) but I didn’t quite like them because they were so greasy and I don’t really need them because my hands are very soft on their own (or so I’m told). Anyway, because of my recent studentjob, my hands had become a bit rough and flaky and my hands started to look like those of an old lady, so I decided to try the Etude House Hand Bouquet Rich Butter hand cream (50ml) from Korea. And what a lovely surprise it was!
First of all, the cream smells heavenly. It’s like you’re entering a garden of flowers in full bloom. Second, it wasn’t greasy at all! The cream melts quickly and gets absorbed in the skin, so you can start grabbing things right away without leaving a greasy smudge. It leaves a very smooth and silky finish with a very fresh floral scent. And most important of all, after a couple of days of use, my hands were again as soft as a baby’s!
Pros (+): nice scent, not greasy, gets absorbed quickly, soft hands!
Cons (-): not easy to find (in Europe)
