Etude House Missing U "Fairy Penguin Story" Hand Cream Review

Etude House is a Korean cosmetic brand that has wide range of affordable great products.

Today, I'm going to review this Etude House Penguin Hand Cream.

The price:
You can get a hold of this product for only Php278 or about $7.

The packaging:
This hand cream is just like any other good hand cream ava
ilable in the market. But I think what makes it so special is it's packaging. I mean, who could resist that cute penguin? :)

The box is made from 100% recycled materials which made it more efficient to buy.

The penguin is printed outside the box so you will have an idea what you're getting even without having to open it.

The bottle is really cute and it's not too big nor bulky so it's perfect for your purse.

The colors aren't overwhelming either. The cap is a pastel green that has the penguin's face. The bottom is a pastel blue and it has the cream.

The story:
Etude House released this line to set consumer awareness about the animals are are engendered or about to be extinct on this planet. Etude House responds to the call of saving them by putting a portion of sales from Missing U Hand Cream to a some sort of animal foundation.

Our endangered animal friends are rap
idly becoming extinct from the planet.. I really want to see you. I miss you!

Korean writing:

The product:

Some people use regular lotions on their h
ands, and that is perfectly fine. But personally, I find regular lotions hot and sometimes too sticky. It makes me not want to hold things because it's just too greasy.

But when I tried this cream for the first time, it was really smooth and it didn't leave a greasy/sticky/hot feeling on my hands. After a couple of minutes, my hand absorbed the cream, which I think was gr
eat. I just feel that when creams enter my pores, it's more effective because it goes right inside and stays there and treats my skin.

The scent was also lovely. It was
n't overwhelming or too powerful. It's a mild floral-talc-like scent which I loved. It was very calming and relaxing. I really like it.

According to Etude House:

The verdict:
I really like this product and I think I would re-purchase this when I finish the first bottle. I would also want to try the other animals and I think it would be a good collection! ^_^

I recommend this to people who want to have cute and a great product in 1.

I give this product 4/5 rating.
