Etude House SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream
Today I'm going to be talking about the Etude House SoonJung 2x Barrier Intensive Cream! I picked this up on the recommendation of one of my subscribers, I had also heard a couple of Youtubers talking about this cream favourably so I thought I would try it out!
Formulated with panthenol, madecassoside, sunflower seed oil and shea butter, this intensely hydrating cream moisturizes and restores the oil and water balance of skin while repairing damage. Low pH level and absence of irritants like fragrance, artificial colors and parabens help pamper and nourish skin better to strengthen it against damage and stress.
This cream comes in a cute little squeeze tube which I prefer over jars. I find that it keeps the cream nice and hygienic and it's very travel friendly at 30ml. It's easy to dispense an appropriate amount of the cream and I like how it stands tip down so I'm likely to get the most product out of the tube without cutting it open.
The cream itself is white in colour and has a thinner, more gel like consistency. I find it very easy to apply and usually gently rub it onto my skin rather than patting it in because it's quicker that way. I assure you that I don't rub my face hard, I don't want wrinkles! This cream dries down very quickly on my skin which means that I can go on to my sunscreen and make up application quite quickly which is great. It doesn't leave any residue on my skin, and also doesn't change the dewiness of the previous skincare.
This cream keeps my skin nicely moisturised throughout the day but it is a little light for night time use, so I have been layering this with my Banila Co Miss Flower and Mr Honey Cream to keep my skin super soft. I haven't experienced any irritation or breakouts with this product.
I wasn't expecting to like this cream as much as I did, but I am grateful because it's a pretty inexpensive item. Most of the Etude House skincare that I've tried hasn't been suitable for my skin type which is disappointing, but I generally think of them more as a cosmetics brand rather than a skincare brand. However, this cream really is a great product! I bought this cream for $6-7USD which is really affordable and it lasted about 2 months.It's pretty cold and wintery here in New Zealand at the moment, so I'm not surprised that I need a little more moisture at night time, but I think this cream would also be a fantastic product for me to use during the warmer summer weather too.
