This is a review of the Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack, a popular skincare product in Korea. I ordered from the Etude House UK supplier but the product is also available in the US.
In Korea women use sleeping packs once or twice a week as the final stage of their night-time skincare routine. A sleeping pack or mask is like a gel which is applied to the skin, kept on all night and washed off in the morning. The gel forms a protective film over the skin retaining moisture while you sleep. Sleeping packs are usually more effective than regular moisturisers at keeping your skin hydrated.
One of my favourite sleeping packs is the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Sleeping Pack (see my review here) so I was eager to try out the Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack to see if it was just as good!
The bubble tea sleeping pack claims to make the skin more moisturised and elastic during the night. It comes in three different “flavours”: green tea, black tea and strawberry. The one I ordered was the black tea.
I was expecting the product to smell of tea but it actually smells very strongly of toffee. It comes with a spatula so you can scoop out the “bubbles” from the bottom of the jar. I checked the ingredients on the bottom of the box to find out exactly what was inside the “bubbles” but it wasn’t clear. The gel contains humectants like glycerin and hyaluronic acid but the bubbles were just described as “moisture bubbles”. I assumed these were packed with slightly more concentrated ingredients than the gel.
The process of scooping the bubbles out was a bit messy as it’s hard not to get too much gel onto your hands. The bubbles are easy to burst and change the consistency of the gel to make it a bit thicker. I’ve included some photographs below so you can get an idea of the consistency of the formula and the size of the “moisture bubbles”.
Experience of the Product
When I used the product I burst two of the moisture bubbles and mixed them into the gel. The mask was much stickier than the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Sleeping Pack and felt much thicker. I left it on over night and could still feel the product on my skin in the morning. I would say that it did make a difference to the elasticity and feel of my skin.
If you were looking for a present for a young girl I think these Bubble Tea Sleeping Packs are interesting and lots of fun. They come in different coloured jars and I think the idea of scooping out a bubble of “extra” ingredients at the bottom is interesting. The only negative thing however is they are a bit messy! I’m also not sure how much difference the bubbles made to the effectiveness of the product.
Overall I enjoyed using this product and would like to test out the other “flavours” in the future. You can order the Etude House Bubble Tea Sleeping Pack from Amazon by clicking the image below.
