[Review] Etude House White Moistfull Cream

I bought this when I was in Korea, I needed a new night cream with moisturising benefits as the weather was getting colder and windier. Clinique's 'Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief' was just not cutting it. However I needed to find a cream that is not too heavy either as I have combination skin and making my skin too oily makes it break out. I have been using Etude House White Moistfull Cream for about 3 weeks now and have to say I love it. 

The product comes in a small pot with a spatula to scoop out the cream instead of using your hands (I don't bother). The lid also clicks in place to let you know you have closed the pot properly. 

There was quite a strong scent when I first opened the product which made me worry as my face is quite sensitive, however upon application you do not even notice it. The consistency of the cream is gel-like with tiny white balls which dissolve as you rub the cream into your skin. It is not sticky and takes only a few minutes to sink in (I also gently pat my face to aid the absorption of the cream). I find that it leaves my skin soft and supple the next day without irritation or break-outs. It is a whitening product but I can not tell whether it has whitened my skin or not since I am already quite pale, so really I should not be using whitening products but I find that they help fade acne scars and are generally more balanced for combination-type skin compared to other ranges i.e Moisturising ranges which can be too heavy, acne ranges can be too harsh and then normal/combination ranges are not moisturising enough!

I would repurchase the product again however this also depends through what channel and the price of it as Etude House products are not available in the UK.

[Update 25.05.17] I am so sad that they have now discontinued this product!
