Etude House Freebies

What's a better way to start the month than a trip to Etude House. I love Etude house. Who doesn't anyway? Aside from their amazing products, they are also known for their generosity in giving away freebies. I love freebies. I even get to love it more when it's from Etude House. ♥ 

Etude always gives their clients an opportunity to try their products through their sample kits. They are really good in marketing their products,

5 packs of Fresh Cherry Tint, 2 packs of Milky You One Step Cleansing foam, 2 Pomegranate Mask Sheet, 3 Collagen Moistfull, 1 pink fluffy pen, 1 Hand mirror 
More than half of what's in the photo are actually freebies! I hope I was able to mention all.

Etude never fails to give the best shopping experience. Just shop the products you want and they'll give you loads of other free stuffs. It's just like attending a birthday party when I was a kid. I get to eat and play a lot and before going home I'm still given a loot bag full of treats. Haha!

Expect me to do a bunch of reviews from all the sample products I got from Etude House.

Product Review: Etude House Lip Perfume Breath Mist

Yes, that's what it's called! "Lip perfume" breath mist. I guess you can spray it directly to your lips? I don't know if you're supposed to do that though. You can purchase this from Etude House for KRW 3 300 a piece which is about US$ 3. Not bad, eh? It comes in a simple rectangular packaging, just enough to enclose a mini spray bottle. It contains about 0.23oz of the product. It's very handy because of it's slim bottle and product just enough to last a month depending on your usage. This product is available in 3 different flavors: Peach, grapefruit and apple. I got the apple one.

It's actually green apple, well, obviously. It smells like green apple which I personally love. It smells so light and sweet. I'd love to have my breath smell like it!

It tastes faintly of green apple and the mint generally takes the stage in the mouth. It's also has a slight bitter aftertaste. It does give a fresh-breath feeling. My mouth did smell a little like green apple, which is good. The minty dance in my mouth lasted for about 15 minutes while the freshness feeling made it to 30 minutes (just enough for a quick chat to cover up that garlicky, oniony, pungent goodness you've indulged in! Ha!). Maybe it would differ with the number of spritz? Maybe! I had about 2 spritz.

This product is completely ALCOHOL FREE! It won't dry your mouth. Yay! It also contains Cetylpyridinium chloride and Xylitol. Cetylpyridinium chloride is an antiseptic found in mouthwashes, lozenges and many other products. It kills bacteria which is one cause of bad breath. It also reduces the risk of gingivitis and prevents plaque build up on teeth. All hail to this compound I can barely spell! On the downside, it can cause discoloration in between teeth but can easily be removed by the dentist. Xylitol is a know sweetener which aside from being sweet, can actually prevent tooth decay and dry mouth.

Overall, I really like this product. It's a really good alternative to gum and candy which contains sugar. It is very slim and can easily be carried around. It comes very handy in times of emergency. Now I am confident that fresh breath is just a spritz away!

Here’s a run-down of the things that I like and I don’t like about this product.

♥  Fruity Scent
♥  Minty 
♥  Refreshes mouth
♥  Small and handy
♥  Does not contain alcohol
♥  Does not contain sugar

■ Bitter aftertaste (I know that it's not supposed to be all sweet and yummy like candy but I think it can taste a little better.)
