Review: Etude House Collagen Moistfull Skin Care Kit

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about Etude House's Collagen Moistfull Skincare Set. I bought this from Roseroseshop last year for only $3, which is such a bargain! The Collagen Moistfull Skincare is one of Etude House's bestselling products, and I've seen so many rave reviews that I just couldn't resist giving it a go! ^.^
The set comes in super cute mini tubes and tubs. This is actually a 6-step set consisting of;  
First essence-> Facial Freshener -> Essence -> Eye Cream -> Emulsion -> Cream

Collagen Moistfull First Essence
Hydrolyzed Collagen Alcohol, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Butylene Glycol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Benzophenone-5, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxethanol, CI 19140, CI 17200, Fragrance

Etude House Moistfull Collagen First Essence is a hydrating moisture and collagen essence. Baobab Tree extract contains moisturizing properties that penetrate deep for better and longer lasting hydration. Also, contains 90% Collagen composition that increases collagen synthesis, providing a lifting and tightening effect. Promotes a radiant and lustrous glow to complexion.
Directions: After cleansing and before facial freshner (toner). Apply an appropriate amount all over face.

Increases Collagen Synthesis
Penetrates Deep

I really liked the First Essence! It had a very thin gel texture with a slightly sticky touch. It features the heavy citrus and slightly alcoholic smell like rest of the set. You only need a teeny tiny amount for your whole face, and it absorbs super fast without leaving a sticky residue. I found the First Essence to be fairly hydrating and moisturizing, but I can't really comment on the penetration or increase of Collagen Synthesis.

Collagen Moistfull Facial Freshner 
Water, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, Nat To gum, Alcohol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Glyceryl Caprylate, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Behenyl Alcohol, Bis-PEG-18 Methylether Dimethyl Silane, Cetearyl Glucoside, Cetearyl Ethlexylglycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Carbomer, Caprylic/Apric triglyceride, Caprylyl Glycol, POlyglyceryl-10 Pentastearate, Propylene Glycol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PEG/PPG 17/6 Copolymer Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance

Etude House Collagen Moistfull Facial Freshner is a mild, alcohol-free toner that gently removes makeup residue, oil and grime that cleanser may leave behind. The unique gel texture refreshes and revitalizes the skin  while the toner sweeps away pore clogging residue that may cause blemishes or cause complexion to look dull and lifeless. Fortified with Baobab Tree extract and collagen, skin remains wonderfully hydrated without a tight or uncomfortable feel.
Directions: After cleansing and First Essence. Apply all over face with cotton pad.


Removes Residue

I really like that this Freshner/Toner is alcohol free! It smells super yummy, absorbs fast without a sticky residue and removes excess makeup and dirt. If feels moderately moisturizing for a toner and is pretty refreshing and revitalizing.  

Collagen Moistfull Firming Eye Cream

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Firming Eye Cream is a gel type eye cream. It’s specially formulated adhesive jelly texture, provides long-lasting contact for better results. Firms surrounding eye area for smoother younger looking skin. Collagen properties increase collagen synthesis, plumping the skin and allowing an increase in elasticity. Baobab seed oil contains abundant amount of nutrients to nurture the dry skin area around the eyes.

Directions: After Essence,  apply an appropriate amount to surrounding eye area. Tap lightly to help absorption.
Increases Collagen Synthesis
Long-Lasting Formula

This eye cream is quite thick and very very sticky. It took a long time to absorb and I didn't notice a difference in eye plumpness or reduction of fine lines. I did notice that when I woke up in the morning my eyes were quite puffy, but this went down within an hour.

Collagen Moistfull Emulsion 
Water, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Hydroganted Polyisobutene, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Collagen Limnanethes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Dimethicone, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Behenyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Cetearyl Alcohol, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Sorbitan Stearate, Sorbityl Laurate, Acetyl Glucosamine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Ethylhexyglycerin, Alcohol, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Caprylyl Glycol, Triethanolamine, Polyglyceryl-10 Pentastearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Disoium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance.

Etude House Collagen Moistfull Emulsion is a concentrated moisturizer that immerses skin in rich moisture to improve skin health and moisture level. Fortified with Baobab Tree extract and collagen, skin is treated to advanced moisture with a dramatic improvement in texture and tone in as little as a few days of use.

Increases Elasticity
Increases Collagen Synthesis
Retains Moisture
Improves Skin Health  

This Emulsion has a thin jelly texture, absorbs moderately fast, but leaves a sticky film for a good 10+minutes. It feels gently moisturizing, but not too rich, which would make it perfect for day time wear, apart from the 10min wait!

Moistfull Collagen Enriched Cream
Hydrolyzed collagen, water, butylene glycol, cyclopentasiloxane, adansonia digitata fruit extract, glycerin, cyclohexasiloxane, glyceryl polymethacrylate, hydrogenated lecithin, cetearyl alcohol, hydrolyzed adansonia digitata extract, betaine, cetylethylhexanoate, glyceryl stearate, hydrogenated polyisobutene, stearic acid, pca dimethicone, dimethiconol, cyclomethicone, ammonium acryloyldimethyltaurate/vp copolymer, silica, dimethicone, polyethylene, sodium polyacrylate, polyglyceryl-3 methylglucose distearate, hydrogenated polydecene, peg/ppg-20/15 dimethicone, phenyl methicone, ethylhexylglycerin, ppg-5-laureth-5, carbomer, disodium edta, phenoxyethanol, fragrance, yellow 5 (ci 19140), red 33 (ci 17200)

Collagen Cream: Fight for dryness!! Firming moisture cream with baobab tree and collagen extract improving your dermal structure leaving tight and moist skin.

This cream is very sticky and takes a long time to absorb! It has a thin texture and is super easy to spread, but I did find that I needed quite a lot to cover my face properly. This cream feels moderately moisturizing, but nothing like the enriching night cream I was expecting.

What Do I Love
 - Lovely smell throughout the range
- Cute packaging

What Don't I Love
- Made my skin feel rough and rashy
- Not very moisturizing
-Takes so long for each step to absorb!

Final Thoughts
I didn't actually like this Skincare set! I've seen some rave reviews (and it was just soo cheap) so I just couldn't resist buying the samples to try it out! I found that it just takes too long to complete the skincare set morning and night, and it made my skin feel rough and dry (I'm not sure why) so I guess that this skincare just isn't quite right for me! I used it for a week and a half before switching back to my holy grail rosehip oil.

Have any of you princesses used the Collagen Moistfull Skincare Set before? 


  1. A pitty this line did cause you problems. I only had some samples of the cream, and this worked quite nice alone. Thanks for your review though!

  2. RoseRoseShop have all those amazingly cute sets. I already own like 1/3 of them and I want them all.
    I tried other sets with the Collagen Moistfull products and I loved every single one of them. Especially the Collagen Moistfull Cream and the Enriched Cream.

    It's so weird that your skin felt dry afterwards because some of those products were so moisturizing for me I could feel how my skin became smoother.

    Thanks for the review! :)

  3. I only tried cream it was fine for a normal to oily skin but for dry skins I also think that it is not a good choice ^^
    I love sample sets a lot :) Instead of buying whole line without trying, they are more clever ^^

  4. I've tried this line and also wasn't very impressed. It just wasn't that great. ):

    ♥ Join my Spring Giveaway! ♥

  5. This is quite I decent product from etude house. Got these as samples and I really the glowy effect of the emulsion on my face.

  6. Hydrolyzed collagen has been utilized in energy bars because it helps curb your appetite...

    Hydrolyzed collagen protein

  7. Skin wrinkle reduction is one of the possible benefits of Collagen Supplements.

  8. Toner is alcohol free but on the ingredients alcohol is on the list? I dont get it

  9. I'm using the well in pinay skins especially if you are expose in aircon all day.
