Etude House is one of the biggest cosmetics brands of South Korea. Although popular for their cutesy and girly makeup products, Etude House launched an exclusive minimalistic skincare line called ‘ Soon Jung’. The Soon Jung collection is formulated for sensitive, dry and irritated skin. The skincare range is free of 10 types of harmful chemicals. The Etude House Soon Jung Line consists of a cleanser, toner, gel cream, cica balm and sleeping pack. Their solution to troubled skin is a simple patent formula they call, Panthensoside. This is comprised of two main ingredients: Panthenol – maintains skin acidity barrier and delivers deep moisturization & Madecassoside – derived from Centella Asiatica which soothes and repairs irritated skin. The product will have a cooling effect on irritated, red skin. These products are non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and fragrance-free. The ingredients were not tested on animals as well. In today’s post we are going to see about the Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack.

Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack Review
Packaging: The Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack comes in a white tube packaging with a flip cap. Although it looks like the usual flip cap, it has unique value like opening rather than the usual pin hole dispenser. You will have to turn the body of the cap to the left so that the middle valve raises and then press on the tube for the product to come out. After taking the product out, turn the body to the right to push the valve down and then close the cap. I guess it’s made that way to avoid exposure to air & dirt. The back side of the tube has a lot of information about the product, all of which are in Korean! The product comes housed in an outer card box packaging. Overall, the product build is convenient to use and travel with.
Texture: The Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack has a thick consistency like a cream.
Fragrance: It literally has no fragrance at all, just like the other products in this range.
Efficacy: Sleeping packs, in general, provides the added benefit of repairing the skin and sealing all the goodness from the toner, serum, and moisturizer. Etude House Soon Jung Sleeping Pack is a good sleeping pack for sensitive and irritated skin. I have used it for three months regularly and I can say it’s very hydrating and occlusive. It forms a thin film over the skin. I mostly use it on top of my moisturizer for extra hydration. The next day, my skin is soft and plump. The hydration lasts for the entire day. It doesn’t clog pores. It calms the redness of acne or zits. But it feels sticky and takes time to absorb.
Its main function is building the skin barrier which it does. It also helps in decreasing the temperature of the skin. An increase in the normal temperature of the skin during the summer months can lead to flare-ups. It effectively soothed my irritated skin after derma rolling or a chemical peel.
I find this product also multifunctional for my dehydrated combination skin. I use it as a moisturizer sometimes during colder weather. The oiliness fades after awhile. It might not suit oily skin types if used during the mornings, but then it’s not really meant for day time use.
