I dunno when but Etude House released this really cute collection of Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foams. The Muse happens to be obsessed with a good cuppa tea so these simply delighted her. I was really good and only indulged in the Peach Tea Cleansing Foam as I wasn’t sure how my skin would react with these. As per the norm, cleansing foam seems to really make my skin tight and dry feeling after use so I was naturally wary about indulging in more than one.
But honestly I was simply gagging to get all of ’em! They have Lemon Tea, Green Tea, Etc….so cute! From what I understand the “teas” aren’t meant for any specific skin type and can be used by anyone who wants a squeaky clean face.
Check out my review of the Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam in Peach Tea after the jump!
Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam is a pretty typical Asian formula. It’s thick, it’s creamy, and it foams. You may be familiar with it’s texture if you’ve ever used Shiseido Perfect Whip (this stuff makes my skin scream for hydration! Ugh! So drying!). For those who haven’t really experienced a cleansing foam Asian style the best way to describe it is an old, traditional shaving cream. The formula is very thick and creamy with a whipped consistency much like whipped cream cheese.
A little water and a very little bit of cleansing cream and you can get to work on your face. It’s called foam for a reason as it foams and suds up beautifully. You can attack a face full of makeup and get it all off with this. It really gets deep in there for a squeaky clean finish. Mind you it doesn’t remove waterproof makeup so of course use some sort of eye makeup remover prior to cleansing.
Now the scent…
It’s SO interesting and fun. I like scented products plus my skin isn’t sensitive so I can take full advantage of heavily fragrance skincare without blinking an eyelash. It starts out banana-ish…really sweet and yummie. As you wash it switches to peach with an underlay of sweet tea. So novel, so cute, so sweet in my opinion. Absolutely adore the smell and I do believe it’s one of the key selling points for me.
One great thing about Asian cleansing foams is how great they feel on your skin as you’re massaging them around your face. You can feel a bit of a glide and a ton of hydration as you work it around your face. After rinsing off, thankfully, I didn’t experience too much drying. There was a tiny bit of tightness but with proper moisturizer I was ready to rumble.
Overall, Etude House Happy Tea Time Cleansing Foam is worth checking into for yourself. I liked it very much and will indulge in further “flavors” of tea.
I got mine directly from Korea but I have seen an E-bay seller (Not affiliated with the seller) selling these for $5.95 (close to retail) and very inexpensive shipping. I haven’t purchased from this seller so do be aware if purchasing.
