Banila Co Hydration Boosting Cream Review

Since moving to Korea, my skin tends to dry out hella fast with or without makeup on. I learned when I first moved here that the air is arid due to the not-so-great air quality. Because of this issue, I decided to try out Banila Co’s Dear Hydration Boosting Cream, and it did not disappoint!

Here are my thoughts:

This cream is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Its purpose is to hydrate, moisturize, and brighten your face before applying makeup and it does just that.

When using any cream on my face, due to my skin being so sensitive, I tend to break-out easily, so finding a good cream has always been a challenge. To be honest, this is the first face cream I’ve used and liked in years. I’ve been using this cream for about six months and haven’t had any breakouts (from the cream).

It’s super light and applies clear to the skin. You won’t have any white residue, which I’ve experienced with other Korean facial creams. 

If you’re looking for a pre-makeup moisturizer, I highly recommend Banila Co’s hydration boosting cream.

Price: The cream is 25,000won, but it will last you a while! I’ve had mine for six months and still have plenty left. One dollop goes a long way.

To purchase in Korea, visit your nearest Banila Co store.  If you live outside Korea, you can find out where to buy this product via
