The Moistfull Collagen line is one of the permanent skincare lines at EH and has been renewed* for many years now so it's fairly well-received. Hydration from marine collagen and Baobab tree water in the cream is the main selling point. This is the moisturizer for normal skin (there is a newer jelly version for oily skin and deep version for dry skin) This cream is a gel-cream hybrid that mostly feels like gel, absorbs fast and is easy to spread. Assuming the Korean ingredient labeling style is the same as in other places, hydrolyzed collagen is biggest ingredient here and not water or other cheaper solvents which I find to be impressive. The jelly texture and supple feel of this cream likely comes from the collagen, as well as a mixture of silicones. I have dehydrated combo skin and this is my day moisturizer of choice all year except for winter because it does a good job of keeping my skin moisturized without feeling heavy/greasy and also does well under makeup (no pilling). It only feels lightly occlusive despite all the silicones, the top two which are thin and volatile(evaporates off skin), which is just right for me. After applying the cream my skin feels supple and doesn't dry out for the rest of the day. When it gets cold and drier this cream alone is not enough and I either use something else or layer an emulsion under it(I already try to use a hydrating toner whether I use an emulsion or not). I don't know about the Baobab water, but I'm sold on collagen in moisturizers because of this cream. There is some fragrance in this as usual with most K-beauty skincare, but it's not a strong overpowering smell but lightly floral. The plastic jar is unnecessarily bulky yet it doesn't feel premium at all despite this. The good thing is that it comes with a spoon, although it does not fit anywhere in the jar, and that it's less likely to break if you drop it. The price is more expensive than your typical drugstore moisturizer should be (17~$20 CAD ) after you factor in exchange fees and the markup from purchasing it at online stores, especially since it doesn't have any expensive actives. I do like that they increased the volume from 50 to 75 in recent years, but all things considered it's still a bit pricey. If you can get this for a good price I highly recommend it for normal skin types, and also dehydrated types if you use it with other hydrating skincare steps. I have repurchased 2-3 times so far. I'm unsure about oily types using this, and it's definitely not for dry types as there's not enough oils in this and is not that heavily occlusive(the deep version is thicker, though I hated it when I tested it). *Korean skin care lines seem to "renew" every year so sometimes you may see a year in the product listing. This may mean packaging redesign or tweaking the formula.
