A lot for us here are very fond of makeup – this is a beauty blog after all –  but I think it’s safe to say that only a handful really knows how to properly remove makeup. This is actually one of the bad habits I aim to break together with my nasty habit of rubbing my eyes and forgetting to put on sunscreen every day. I spend 20-30 minutes in the morning doing my makeup before going out but at night, I try my very best to remove my makeup as fast as I could. I normally just wipe everything off without even checking if I really did remove everything much less be cautious in tugging on my skin.

Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream in Milk Tea (180ml)
This Etude House Happy Teatime Milk Tea Cleansing Cream is formulated with Milk Protein to remove dirt and makeup while keeping skin moisturized with the pleasant fragrance of tea.
How to use: Apply cream to all areas of the face. Massage thoroughly and wipe clean with cleansing tissues or rinse with warm water to remove excess.
Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream in Milk Tea is contained in this humongous brown plastic jar with a very detailed screw-lid top. The packaging is quite heavy; although sturdy, it’s difficult to bring when travelling. Inside the simple yet very cute jar is a rich white cream. It feels soft against the skin and it glides on like butter. It’s easy to spread and as it is rubbed on the face longer, it picks up the makeup thus making its change color. I’m not picky when it comes to smell of makeup removers as long as they’re not overpowering – which in this case is not. It has a mild milky, almost talc, scent if you ask me.
When removing makeup, it is almost impossible not to get the makeup remover into the eyes. This happened to me several times before. And knowing how sensitive my eyes are, it’s really a relief that Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream doesn’t sting or irritate the eyes. Although it does make my eye sight a bit blurry for a couple of minutes but that’s it.. no major fuss. After wiping off the cleansing cream with Watsons Baby Fresh Wipes, it is important to rinse it off entirely because the cleansing cream itself is extremely oily on the face.
Let’s put Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream to the test, shall we? πŸ™‚
Basically, what I like about Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream is that it melts away majority of my makeup in just one go. It removes almost everything with the exception of water-proof mascara. Well, actually, it can remove water-proof mascara but it takes longer and needs much more effort. As far as light to medium coverage foundations and water-proof eyeliners go, Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream really does an excellent job. So what I do for to remove the mascara is that I use the ordinary baby wipes and pinch my lashes per section to remove the mascara residue – this is where CanMake Eye Lash Care Essence (Read review HERE) becomes useful. *wink
Overall, I’d say that Etude House Happy Teatime Cleansing Cream is really worth buying – it’s affordable and effective at the same time. It makes the dreadful process of removing makeup after a long tiring day more bearable. The only thing that could make this even better is if it came with a spatula. I really don’t like dipping my fingers in the container. As for the “flavor”, Milk Tea, I really can’t say much because I haven’t tried the other variants yet. I’ll update you when I get the chance to try ’em. πŸ™‚
