Etude House My Castle Hand Cream Forever Rose Review

7

Etude House My Castle Hand Cream is the newest hand cream line released by the Korean brand. There are four scents to choose from, and each are packaged in a cute, little house. They should have been named My House Hand Cream because these are not castles, lol. But I guess the name “My Castle” sounds better and more magical. 🙂 The packaging itself is very pretty and colorful, and makes me want to collect them all. I have only bought two of the four available scents, but will probably go back for the other two.

ETUDE HOUSE MY CASTLE HAND CREAM
My Own Little Fantasy World of My Imagination

The castles/houses have different colors and looks depending on the scent. Forever Rose, which has an elegant and feminine rose floral fragrance, has a green roof. Pink Wish has a pink roof and a fruity floral fragrance. Ice Frozen has an ice floral fragrance and a roof similar to Forever Rose but its color is Lavender. Sweet Cookie, which has a brown roof with a playful look, has a sweet vanilla fragrance. Its roof is similar to Pink Wish, just with a different color.

Enchanting red roses are in full bloom in one corner of the Versailles Palace garden. The scent of these dozens of roses fills up the palace garden and spreads its captivating fragrance around every corner of the castle. Among these beautiful red roses there is a very secretive and noble gold rose that radiates dazzling light. People have continuously been coming to see this rose for once you smell this golden rose you can possess this elegant fragrance forever. Would you like to go seek out this enchanting and elegant gold rose together?

Etude House My Castle Hand Cream Swatch

I wash my hands frequently so my hands are really dry. Etude House My Castle Hand Cream is able to remedy that dryness. It contains Shea Butter which is a popular ingredient in most body creams and lotions. The cream is not white, but a light lilac/lavender in color. It is very creamy and smooth, yet it is not greasy. It is absorbed by the skin in no time, and makes it very work-friendly for me. I don’t like having to wait a long time after applying my hand cream before being able to type on my computer again.

Etude House My Castle Hand Cream also contains 6 organic ingredients. Chamomile, Aloe, Lavender, Lemon Verbana, Marshmallow Root and Centella Asiatica Urban. Although it is very affordable, the cream is really effective. I also love the scent of Forever Rose. I am a fan of rose-scented products, and Forever Rose smells like a dozen roses on my hands. 🙂

The packaging is really cute but is not really travel-friendly. The jar is a little big to fit my small vanity pouch, so I only use it at home. It’s also not hygienic because you’ll have to dip your fingers in order to get some product. I prefer the tube-type hand creams when it comes to the packaging. But still, Etude House My Castle Hand Cream can be used at home. Just make sure to wash your hands first before dipping your fingers in the jar. It’s also a great accessory to my home office table. 😉

Etude House My Castle Hand Cream is regularly priced at Php348. I bought it from Etude House in Robinsons Manila during the Etude House Hello New Year Sale and got a 20% discount. For those outside Asia, I believe Etude House now ships internationally. 😉

Do you use hand creams? What brand of hand cream are you using? Have you tried Etude House My Castle Hand Cream?

    Yessss! My long awaited review~ <3 Thanks for the info. I'll get the sweet cookie variant since I love vanilla and usually use vanilla scented products <3

    and oh! Maybe it was labelled as 'My Castle' because we are called 'princesses', right? ^w^

    • No problem, Ruby May! I’m also getting Sweet Cookie next, it smells wonderful too. Yeah, you’re right! They greet us with “Hello, Princess!” everytime we enter their store. I just keep telling them, I’m no princess… I’m a queen! Just because I already have kids. Lol! 😉

  2. I am using nivea baby smoothy cream. I havent tried using this one. But now i saw this parang gusto ko itry .:) true super cute ng packaging sana may smaller version so it would fit in the bag. 🙂

    • I haven’t used Nivea naman. 🙂 The cute packaging is what actually made me buy this. If you’ve got a medium-sized bag, then it might fit. If you take it out while in class or at the office, you’ll definitely get asked about it. 😀

  3. I use hand body lotion to moisture my hands. I never tried hand cream products. I think I should try this one. It’s has a cute packaging too!

    • Hi Gadis! I have only tried a few hand creams. I find them creamier and thicker than body lotions. But this one is not too thick and it smells divine, too. Plus, of course, the packaging is very cute. 🙂
