Etude House Missing U I can fly (hand cream) review

Dear Beauty Diary,
I am back with another review on an Etude House product. Look at this little bird, you'll never guess it holds hand cream inside. I love yellow, that's why I got the Eastern Grass Owl in Peach Peach Peach scent. ^_^ This hand cream was going for as low as $5 online, but I still prefer to head down to an Etude House store to buy the products. Its called instant gratification and its not so good. >.< But I can't help it, I just prefer it like that. :P Of course there are prices to pay when you shop at an Etude House store. I don't live in Korea, so all the stuff here are not at retail price. I paid $10.90 ($8.71 USD) for this little bird.

The bird is made of plastic, and it about the size of your palm. No worries about the hand cream leaking or spilling, as the bird container is made of plastic and is very sturdy. It won't topple over too. This hand cream is really interesting, as it has a gel like texture. Its very lightweight and absorbs into your hands quickly. Leaves no greasy and oily feeling behind as a result. The scent is really really nice too, the peach one is really sweet, and whenever I smell it, I feel happy and calm and relaxed. Its one of the nicest smells I've ever come across.

The hand cream was so lovable, I went straight back to Etude House and got another one. So that my dear Eastern Grass Owl won't feel lonely sitting on my desk alone. He needs a friend. So I picked up a she friend for him. ^_^ I got the pink one, Eagle Owl, in Very Berry Cherry scent. Take a look for yourselves, don't they look so cute together? Oh my goodness, I just realised that Eagle Owl and Eastern Grass Owl are looking at each other. Look at their eyes. ^_^

Now moving on to the review on Eagle Owl. She smells more like an ordinary everyday floral soap to me. I still prefer the scent of Eastern Grass Owl. Except for the scent and design, everything else about Eagle Owl is the same as Eastern Grass Owl. Another subtle difference I noticed is the colour of the hand cream. Eagle Owl is this milky-light lavender colour, while Eastern Grass Owl is a milky-light orange colour.

Product description of Eastern Grass Owl:

Formulated with Shea Butter and Herb Water rich in certified organic nutrients, this eco-friendly hand cream not only moisturizes dry hands, but also helps to save our endangered flying friends.

Story of Eastern Grass Owl:
Hi! I'm Eastern Grass Owl, the best night hunter with a pretty heart-shaped face mask. I utilize my features like high tech equipment, so I can hunt very well even in dense forests at night. However, I am in danger of extinction, because hunting has become so difficult with lesser natural areas. Please help me to fly freely again!

Product description of Eagle Owl is the same as with Eastern Grass Owl.

Story of Eagle Owl:
Hi! I am Eagle Owl, the great night bird! I like to hunt during night time, with my big eyes lit as headlights. I am in danger of extinction, because hunting has become so difficult in bright city nights. Please help me to fly freely again!

Best thing, these hand creams are free from parabens, Sulfate, Ethanol and Mineral Oil. Specially made for those who are health conscious. I too am pretty health conscious. Like I shared earlier in my Dear Girls lip balm review, I use the other end of my cotton bud to sweep into this hand cream to prevent contamination.

These are really good everyday hand creams, they feel so light and yet moisturising. There's only 30ml in each bird though. Well, I wouldn't mind buying more, as these birds look so adorable. Etude House also donates a sum from the sales made of these hand creams to an animal protection organisation. :)
