Review: Etude House Every Month Cleansing Cream: Moisture & Revitalizing

Tuesday, 31 March 2015

Salam and annyeonghaseyo~ Oh, God.. it's been a long time since I last sat down in front of this desktop and hitting the publish button on this blog!

I'm in the middle of going through some stuffs at uni and soon I'll be done with it and finally can have a break!

Anyway, today I'll be reviewing a cleansing cream that I've been using for the past few months in my double cleansing routine, which is this Every Month Cleansing Cream in Moisture & Revitalizing from Etude House. 

Why cleansing cream? If you're wondering which makeup remover you should go to it actually boils down to your preferences. Cleansing cream basically can be used by all skin type but there are some waterproof products it fails to dissolve so that's why if you're on heavier makeup or use waterproof makeup, I suggest you go for cleansing oils. 

People usually just wiped off their skin using tissues after the cleansing cream dissolves the makeup but to save time, I just wash it off with running water and proceed with cleansing foam. Yeah, whatever that float your boats. 


Basically, there's 2 variant and the other one is for Soft & Moist which is meant for those with dry skin. 
Product Description:

Cleansing with nourishment for skin that stressed by makeup and skin waste.

Smooth skin texture cleansing by reducing the dead skin cells.

180ml. 

Packaging:

The product came in that medium-sized soft brown plastic tube with velvety finish. The illustration basically shown you the fruits of which its extracts are used in the making of this product.

No worries as there is English description printed at the lower bottom of the tube.

I was lucky at that time as I bought this last year in April, I scored a fresh 3M product. Though I opened this product like in November. Too many other products to finish! *typical beauty blogger problem. 

The cap is working well throughout the time I'm using it. No leaking whatsoever. easy to re-cap after use. 

Verdict:


Here I sampled Korean BB Creams, CC Creams, Bourjois foundation, and a waterproof eyeliner.

   

I usually use much more than that to remove my makeup. How to do it is just spread the cream all over your skin and massage until the cream turns into slightly oily substance, a sign which your makeup already melted and ready to be wiped away using tissues or just rinse with water. I usually just massage for like 2 to 3 minutes before washing it off.

As you can see, it practically removes all kinds of makeup (except for waterproof mascara - which you have to remove using mascara remover) but of course, I have to follow up with using cleansing foam for thorough cleansing.

The scent of the cream is really refreshing, it's given I guess, looking at the ingredients but yeah, there's fragrance so I don't know if this product appeals to those who don't like fragrance-containing products. The sensation is quite soothing actually as if it contains mint or something. 

Final verdict: 4/5. Its performance to me is quite good. I got nothing to complain. It's working but there's nothing really special about it. Will I repurchase? Probably no because I got tons other product I want to try. hehe

For 180ml product, the price of RM29.90 (excluding GST now), it's okay I guess. This lasts with me for more than 5 months now and I still got a third to go. So yes, a little goes a long way.

As you probably know, this is a sister product of the foam cleanser that I reviewed previously.

I guess that's all I want to share with you guys about the product.

Let me know if you tried this or tell me your holy grail product to remove makeups will ya? 

Until next post! Annyeong~ ^___^
