Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cleansing Foam Review

Hi lovelies!

Apologies for being away so long, the both of us got caught up with life and all the obligations that come with being a student or having a full-time job :/ While we have tried our best to keep you updated on our instagram account, this blog was neglected…for a bit.

It’s review time!

The Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cleansing Foam was originally bought for our mother since she was on the hunt for a new cleanser. I distinctly remember that after her first use she commented that it made her skin feel tight – too tight. Fast forward a couple of weeks, and she passed on the cleanser to me as she wasn’t happy with how it made her skin feel. I was curious and decided to test it out, and here is my belated review!

Claims:

This is a cleansing foam containing fine Super CollagenTM Water particles and high moisture Baobab Water, providing clean and hydrating cleansing. The fine and thick outer moisture layer foam provides gentle moist cleansing, preventing moisture loss for maintaining soft skin.

Ingredients:

Myristic Acid, Glycerin, Water, Stearic Acid, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Peg-32, Potassium Hydroxide, Butylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycol Distearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil, Adansonia Digitata Fruit Extract, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer, Poloxamer 407, Polyquaternium-7, Disodium Edta, Alcohol, Phytantriol, Sodium Benzoate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance.

The cleanser contains myristic acid which, according to CosDNA is a fragrance and emulsifier, and stearic acid – a surfactant emulsifier – and both are comedogenic. Yikes!

Price:

150ml sells for £6.91/ $8.66/ €8.15 on ebay (affiliate link) 

Performance:

Creamy consistency

The cleanser has a creamy consistency, and it has a light scent which I cannot place. The scent does linger for a bit, which is probably why it wasn’t made too strong. The cleanser is easily spreadable and is worked into the skin easily.

I noticed that my skin felt tight after use, however tight skin does not necessarily mean that the skin has been ‘cleaned’ if you get what I mean.

Non-foaming

As for the claims that it is moisturizing, I wouldn’t call this a moisturizing cleanser; even though the cleanser does not foam (LIES ETUDE HOUSE! LIES!) as you can see from the pictures, I felt that it stripped my skin of its natural oils and left it a bit dehydrated. In fact, my poor skin started feeling the effects of the cleanser and it became a bit irritated and angry over time – leading to my testing out the cleanser’s ph and nearly dying from shock.

PH between 9 and 10

Personally, I would stop the review right here, but I’m simply going to conclude by showing you its effectiveness on makeup, here are the results:

while the foundation didn’t stand a chance, the lip stain and the eyeliner did not budge. To be fair, the stain and liner are meant to be long-lasting and the cleanser is not meant to act as a makeup remover, but a girl can dream.

Repurchase:

Hell no. Did you see the ph? I need something to help my skin, not make it angry and irritated and stripped. Sorry Etude House.
