Etude House Happy Teatime Aloe Tea Cleansing Cream

I have to confess, there are lots of times I go to work without any makeup on, just because I get sooo lazy when I come home from work all drained, and makeup removal is the last thing on my mind. (My super kikay self from a few years back would gasp in disbelief when she gets to read this.) This product from Etude House is the perfect remedy for my laziness, because it actually makes me look forward to removing makeup at the end of the day!

This was part of my mini haul from Etude House early this month. I've tested this for almost a month now so here's my quick review.


Even though the BA from Etude House was recommending the Lemon Tea Cleansing Cream, I still went for this because I like the color of the lid/packaging better. Haha. That was the power of cute packaging that lured me in. Plus, the Lemon Tea variant's scent reminded me of Pond's Cold Cream in Lemon (which I used before), so I wanted to try something different.

Etude House says:
Cleansing Cream's creamy texture contains Aloe extract to remove dirt and makeup while keeping skin moisturized with the pleasant fragrance of tea.

[Directions] Apply cream to all areas of the face. Massage thoroughly and wipe clean with cleansing tissues or rinse with warm water to remove excess.

It looks like a cute little teacup, minus the handle.

Here's the cute little lid that I just had to take a picture of!


Pros:

  • It has a super cute packaging.
  • I'm in love with its light gel-cream texture. I was quite surprised when I sticked my finger in to get some product, because I was expecting it to be dense and creamy (like Pond's Cold Cream). This one is more watery.
  • Since it's more watery, it feels fresh and light on my skin when I massage it on my face.
  • It is not so greasy.
  • It removes my makeup thoroughly. Yey!
  • It did not give me breakouts.
  • The scent is refreshing (no old lady scent or whatsoever).
  • This one gives great value for your money because of its big size and cheap price.

Cons:
  • Because I was used to using creamy makeup removers before, I tend to use more product with this one because of its lighter texture.
  • I am not sure if this will work well with waterproof makeup (like mascara) because I personally don't use waterproof makeup.

Will I repurchase? YES! In all other variants too so I get to collect the cute little jars. Haha!
Price: P198.00 for 180ml (Talk about value for money!)
Available in Etude House stores and kiosks (in SM Department Stores) nationwide.

What makeup remover do you use? :)

Love,
Helen

    1. EH is cheaper (P198 for 180ml) compared to Pond's (approx. P190 for 100ml). The packaging is cuter too! :)

    1. Hi! These are the differences among the 3 variants:

      Lemon Tea - Vitalizing and nourishing formula
      Milk Tea - Moisturizing and smoothing formula
      Aloe Tea - Moisturizing and complexion health formula

      My favorite would have to be lemon tea. I've used up 3 tubs and counting.
