This product was sent to me for review by Etude House PH last month. I believe that this is one of the products they've released recently. I was really curious about this because of the claims that it is made of 54% baobab water. I actually didn't know about this ingredient and had to do some readings online. It turns out, according to this article, that baobab is a fruit that has one of the highest amount of antioxidants and vitamin C. These factors boosts or stimulates collagen production which highly benefits the skin.
Knowing about those skin benefits, I was super excited to try the product out. But before we proceed, let's check out what the press release says:
PURE WATER BAOBAB MOIST LINE
Baobab is a tree commonly found in Africa, popular for the life-sustaining water in its trunk and branches. Etude House harnessed the power of this tree plus moringa seed extract to purify and moisturize the skin. It’s also hypoallergenic, making it perfect for dry and sensitive skin. To achieve better results, it’s ideal to use the toner (Pure Water Baobab Moist Skin), emulsion (Pure Water Baobab Moist Moisturizer), and then the cream (Pure Water Baobab Moist Cream).
✦ Pure Water Baobab Moist Skin (Php 578.00)
✦ Pure Water Baobab Moist Emulsion (Php 648.00)
✦ Pure Water Baobab Moist Cream (Php 798.00)
The emulsion is housed in this clear, plastic bottle. I really like the design—it's simple and still girly. I especially like the cap because it makes the big difference in making the simple bottle look cuter.
But what I didn't like is that it doesn't have a pump or anything to dispense the product easier. You have to tilt it down and let the product pour out. It will be easy at first while the bottle is still full but if you're nearly finished with this, it will be a challenge to get the product out. Good thing that the emulsion isn't thick. :P
The consistency is unlike many of the moisturizers and emulsions I've tried. This is thinner or more watery that makes it so easy to spread on skin. It gets absorbed very fast by the skin and it has no sticky feeling as well. It barely has any scent too!
I like this product because it does give my skin enough moisturization without the feeling of greasiness or stickiness. I also like that it doesn't have any strong scents. What I like best is that it's affordable—the 180ml is only Php 648.00. I use this daily, usually before I put on my makeup. Although before I sleep, I use products that give more intensive hydration for my skin.
So what do you think of the Etude House Pure Water Baobab Moisturizer? Have you tried any product from this new line yet?
