[Review] Etude House - AC Clean Up Liquid Patch

Hello everyone! :)

I stumbled a second before I was going to write about this product. I wonder, "where should I categorize it?" It is not a skincare product, but definitely not a makeup product. Dear readers, please kindly read until the end and share your insight on this in the comment box below (if any).

Okay, let's begin.

Honestly, I was really amazed once I knew about this product. It is similar to acne patch/sticker, but in liquid form, and soon the liquid will dried off and formed a transparent film layer to protect skin with problems or injuries (i.e. acne spots) from exposing to external irritation (i.e. dirt or makeup). Then I was thinking, "wow! I want to give it a try."

The packaging is rather small and cute, after all it's just 5ml, but that's more than enough for the meantime. Fyi all Etude House's AC Clean Up line products are targeting for users whom have acne problems.

When you opened up the bottle, you will find a flat-headed applicator attached to the cap (as below).

What you gonna do is, clean up the skin areas with problems and apply thinly with the flat-headed applicator (as below). Since it is liquid-type, you can draw whatever shape or size you prefer. No restriction. When the protective film is completely dry, apply foundation or concealer (matches your skin tone) over it. Suggestively this will make your face look flawless.

...But it wasn't the case. Well, at least I felt great for the first 5 minutes after the application. There is a huge flaw with this product that caused a big disappointment. Not only the protective film doesn't attach tightly to the skin, but it also continues to dry off until it looks like a piece of dead skin whereby you can just peal it off easily. (omgeeee whutttt) It is especially frail around the area which have active muscle activities (see below).

Yucks. Certainly I am not expecting such result. :(

Skin areas with less muscle activities like forehead or cheeks would have better results, but the patch usually doesn't last for long, which is such a shame. I really like the idea thou. If you must, try to draw small patches instead; it lasts longer and less detectable than large patch.

Just in case you are interested to know, I bought it for RM40.20 with the help of a friend in South Korea. Also, you can find this product on Hermo for RM47.70.
