Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream

Collagen has great tensile strength, and is the main component of fasciacartilageligamentstendonsbone and skin.  Along with soft keratin, it is responsible for skin strength and elasticity, and its degradation leads to wrinkles that accompany aging. ~source: wikipedia

Baobab-containing products are often marketed as a rich source of antioxidants. Some proponents claim that, due to their antioxidant content, products made with baobab fruit can help slow the aging process and protect against major illnesses and is also said to protect against inflammation-related conditions. Additionally, baobab fruit is sometimes used as an ingredient in skin-care, hair-care and body-care products. Some personal-care products contain baobab oil, which is extracted from the seeds of the baobab tree. Research shows that baobab seeds are rich in essential fatty acids (such as linoleic acid) that may help improve the skin. ~source: altmedicine.about.com

Seems like I start a post with a definition whenever I like a product.  And Moistfull Collagen Cream is a total love.
"Fight for the dryness!!  Moisturizing and tightening cream improves complexion look and feel with concentrated Baobab Tree extract and Collagen formula."
This is a special product for me and I only use it once or twice a week (aside from the cost I still have an emulsion to finish so I don't use it on a daily basis).  The instant effect of this on me is amazing!: (imagine) from zombie to human again (hehehe, exaggerating me).  Just a pea or two of this cream makes my skin soft and smooth, leaving me a sheen that makes my face glowing with life (specially when I smile; everyboody become a year younger with just a simple smile :D).  And the effect last long (2 to 3 days) so even if I don't use this often, I still have a healthy looking face (though I still consider my skin dull but compared before, I can say that there's around 30 to 50% improvement).
Of course, creaminess is all over the cream but it doesn't feel sticky or heavy upon application.  I am actually surprised to it's lightness the first time I used it.  It's just like an emulsion but in a cream.  Color is (as shown in the picture) light milky orange/tangerine.  The smell is on the citrusy side (maybe because of baobab) with something herbal on it (same with the Massage and First Essence).  I like the scent although sometimesit's overpowering but don't worry, it will subside in just a matter of seconds.

I totally love this product and would definitely save every penny in my pocket (and would even sacrifice my almost daily ice cream break) just to have another glass tub of Moistfull Collagen Cream.  Yep, it's on a glass tub so it's kinda heavy.  I will also try the Moistfull Collagen Emulsion so I could splatter a lot of the collagen goodness on my face (hahaha).

Thanks for reading.  Happy Rainy Season Filipinos while Happy Summer to the rest of the World.  Till then.  Bye!

  1. Hi! Nice review. Too bad Collagen can't penetrate our pores. Collagen is best taken through injections. So I don't believe Collagen on a topical product can actually work but I do appreciate the moisturizing properties :)

    1. yup true because according to studies these kind of creams will not penetrate the layer of the skin that enhance the collagen only the outer one, but at least these creams decreases the rate of the loss of water in the skin making it supple and besides I can't imagine myself going under the knife or injectoions (for now maybe) ahahaha and it's expensive too so I'm cool with Moistfull Collagen :D

  2. Thanks for sharing about collagen treatments. I have heard that too much collagen is not good for health. It can create heart attacks since it wraps the collestrol strongly. So will injecting collagens have an effect on our body?

  3. okay so I am not an expert in collagen and I'm not also a medical practitioner so in case you wanted to have a collagen injection you should really have to first ask the opinion of an expert since there are many sources of collagen that can be injected/supplemented to the body and based on what I have read on the internet, marine based collagen can increased the calcium in the body and too much calcium can cause abnormal heart rhythms that may lead to heart attacks. you can read other side effects of collagen supplements in this site http://www.livestrong.com/article/325664-side-effects-of-taking-collagen-supplements/
    I hope this somehow helps
