Etude House Hand Bouquet Rich Butter Hand Cream

Since my hands are super dry, I have to use very moisturizing hand cream
I hate greasy ones though...

I am always looking for something that fits the following criteria:
1) able to provide the moisture & hydration I need
2) gets absorbed into my hands and won't wash off when I wash my hands
3) not greasy

so far... moist hand creams fit into criteria 1&3
however, the moisture & hydration they provide are short term
meaning as soon as I wash my hands and dry them, my hands gets dried....

The Etude House Hand Bouquet Rich Butter Hand Cream contains 5% shea butter which gives its light baby powder scent
Milky white in color, creamy rich in texture
it's really moisturizing and no sticky at all!!

Organia Olive Water Drop Essence Hand Cream

50 g, 1500 won

When I went to Korea a few years ago.I bought like 10 of these for myself and gave away ~20 
This time I bought 10 again. 
The only place I could find this is Watson's in Myeongdong, not sure if other Watson's stores have them.

This water drop hand cream is super hydrating!

Suitable for any type of skin.
If you live in a hot area like Asia or California, you probably lose a lot of moisture in your body.
If you live in cold areas like Canada, where it's super dry, you will definitely need this for some hydration.
50 mL is a good size to carry in your purse 

Before I apply the hand cream, there are some fine lines on my hands

Milky white texture, light floral scent

when you pat it around, you'll see water drops!!

pat lightly until all the waterdrops get fully absorbed

fine lines suddenly diminished!!

I feel like there's a thin layer of protection on my skin
very refreshing, non-greasy and light texture
feels like my skin just drank water!!

For me, because I have super dry hands, I need to mix half of it with intensive moisture hand cream

i just put a small dab of each and mix it together then apply it
I give this product a 5 star rating!!

Skinfood Avocado Rich Essence Mask Sheet

23 g/sheet, 2000 won, $195/ 5 sheets, 125 NT / sheet

Ever since the weather start to change, my skin suffers... fine lines, face oil and etc... all these annoying things come back on my face... well it's probably time to switch to a winter set of skincare~

However, if you don't wanna spend more money on moisturized products, you can try the Avocado Rich Essence Mask Sheet~

Avocado is considered to be a moist fruit rich in Vitamin A, D, E, proteins and avocado oil. It's super easy to be absorbed, helps recover softness and elasticity in your skin, and reduce fine lines.

The sheet mask itself it made with superior cotton, high level of penetration into your skin. The essence also contains
Hyaluronic Acid which locks moisture into your skin.

Same as the toner and emulsion, it smells like berry (very fruity). After using the mask sheet, there's a thin layer of oil left behind, I guess that's avocado oil, leaving my face moisturized

Skinfood Avocado Rich Emulsion

160mL, 11000 won, $215 HKD, 690 NT

This is a light yellow emulsion that contains water lily extracts, avocado oil, ceramide, and bambusae caulis. It aids in cells regrowth, provides deep skin hydration, increases firmness and improves the texture of your skin. Avocado is well known for deep hydration and firming.

The avocado emulsion smells like berry with absolutely no avocado smell. 
Perhaps the series is for dry skin, moisture level is high and yet non-greasy and refreshing.
I used it for ~2 weeks and my T-zone is not so oily anymore, it does a very good job with oily control~
Since my T-zone is dehydrated, using this product supplies more water moisture to my skin.

Skinfood Avocado Rich Toner

160mL, 11000 won, $215 HKD, 690 NT

I didn't buy the full size for this line, I only tried the sample set which lasted ~1 week.

Avocado contains Vitamin A, D, B2, B6, C, E, proteins, minerals and etc...
It has anti-oxidants and supplies nutrients to your skin. 
Avocado can retain moisture and absorbs easier than Olive oil~

Suitable for dry skin, helps balance oil secretion and smooths fine lines. 
It smells like berry and nothing like avocado.... the texture is the same as some of the Skinfood toners, thick (more like a light gel), easy to spread, fast absorbing and very hydrating.

After using it, it makes my skin feel so soft ~
The avocado products I have tried were thick and creamy and made me feel so uncomfortable~

It does an excellent job with oil control, after using it for ~1 week, the size of my pores reduced and my skin became softer.

According to the instructions, the avocado line is for dry skin, but I have combination oily skin and found that this is suitable for me as well, I quite liked it~ 
The Avocado line is way better than I thought ha ha, next time I would definitely get a full size toner ~
