Etude House Missing You Hand Cream

I first caught wind about these cuties on one of my favorite beauty blogs, Musings of a Muse. If you haven't visited that site before, she reviews tons of different Korean brands, including Etude House, which is the only other Korean brand I've purchased from before. Wait, I take that back. I've reviewed a couple things from Tony Moly. I bought these hand creams in a 4 piece set, but I ended up gifting 2 of them to friends before I could take pics.

So what are they?

Little hand creams made out of shea butter and herbal waters, housed inside adorable little animals!

My absolute favorite is the panda, who as you can see is peach flavored. I've noticed Korean brands like to stick to veggie and fruit flavors, which I really like. Peach is one of my favorite scents, and I don't see much of it here in the US, so I purchased a few more products from overseas that are peachy. (Reviews coming soon) The penguin wasn't as great, I think he smells like Baby Powder.

The other two that I gifted were a Seal, (Green Tea) and a little Dolphin (Rose)

I hate the fact that they are so small, and won't last you long. These are obviously bought mostly for the adorable packaging. And they prove a bit expensive when you have to buy them off Ebay at around $8 each. (Plus shipping where you're really going to pay the big bucks) But you'll be the only one who has these, since they aren't available anywhere in the US yet. Hopefully soon.

The actual lotion is nice though, it's very moisturizing and the smells linger for a good amount of time. I wish I could purchase JUST the panda in a bigger size, but oh well. These are truly collectibles, and after I gifted one to a neighbor, she went on Ebay and bought the whole set. Buying all 4 will be cheaper, I think I paid $32 so you're shaving a couple bucks off if you buy them all together in their original set.

So if you want to buy these adorable little animals, your best bet is Ebay. Just make sure you're buying from a reputable seller, and if you plan on buying more, I recommend buying in bulk, so you can bundle your shipping together.

Disclosure: These products were purchased by me
