I can't resist cute packaging. That's why when Etude House came out with four different Missing U Hand Creams, I had to have at least one. I think I might need more than one, but I am trying to show restraint and only start with one…for now.
So what is this little piece of adorableness?
Well formulated with Shea Butter and other organic herbs and nutrients, this hand cream is not only good for your hands but helps save endangered birds. Because the translation from Korean to english is spotty at best, I can't tell you how much of the money goes to saving endangered birds, or the organization that Etude House goes through to do it. So I'm not going to focus on that right now.
What I am going to focus on is the incredibly CUTE packaging.
This is the recycled cardboard box that the hand cream comes in. Soy ink is used for the printing, and the entire package is collapsable and recyclable.
On the side, you can scan the QR code and download the I can fly song. No, I have not done that yet. I don't really care to do that. But it's cute none the less.
On the back is the explanation about the bird and ingredients in Korean. But not to fret my dear non Korean reading readers…(that's me too) They have a translation in English on the side, and the ingredients are listed there too.
Aside from the cute packaging the cream inside is actually very nice! It's not too greasy or thick, but it's not runny either. It's custard like texture easily absorbs into the hands without feeling sticky or oily. Most important, the hand cream moisturizes very well. I found the condition of my hands improving with continued use.
The scent is called Sunny Sunny Green Apple. It's not that artificial green apple (Jolly Ranchers) smell. It's actually not "sharp" like the artificial green apple, but it's not overly sweet either. It's a nice balance of creamy and crisp. I was pleasantly surprised at how pleasant the hand cream smelled. I was really expecting something awfully cloying. This scent was a welcome treat.
But let's face it. I didn't buy this for the scent or the quality or the saving of a species (which is all a delightful extra) I bought this because it's so freakin cute!
Look at it!!
Look at it!!!
See? It IS cute. You agree!
I purchased this sweet Etude House Missing U Hand Cream from the RoseRoseShop. Oh and they have three other colors and scents in this sweet bird container! I like their fast delivery (from Korea) and good prices. This little gem only set me back $5.50. And yes. I could get a ton more hand cream for less than $5.50, but they won't look as cute as THIS!!!
Don't forget the 10% discount code.
