You’ll be hard pressed to find a sleeping pack with packaging as cute as the Etude House Sleeping Pack Bubble Tea packaging by Etude House.

On my almost daily searches for moisturizing sleeping packs (I am on the lookout for anything that will cure the flaky skin I often get because of my combination skin), I’ve seen this product a few times and always passed on it. But, of course, once there was a sale on I caved and bought one for me and my friend to try.

I thought the packaging was probably all there was to this sleeping pack. I was kind of right.

Etude House Sleeping Pack Bubble Tea – Black Review


Price: $11 on Amazon
Size: 3.5oz / 100g
Fragrance: Sweet vanilla scent; no black tea smell
Skin effect: Sticky, very light moisturization
Pros: Cute packaging and the idea of moisture beads for boba pearls is very clever
Cons: Doesn’t moisturize enough for combination or dry skin

I have combination skin, so I am always up for trying sleeping packs, deep moisturizers, and any other product that promises moisturized skin. It’s no surprise I decided to try an Etude House Sleeping Pack Bubble Tea at some point – the packaging is cute and it does promise extra moisturization in the boba pearls when you need it. Yes, boba pearls! However, these are very different from the ones you get in your favorite boba tea flavor.


Etude House Sleeping Pack Bubble Tea
This adorable little pot contains small “boba” pearls at the bottom. They’re not really boba pearls at all, just small moisture beads.

These pearls can be fished out of the bottom of the pot and crushed under the scooper once you put this cream on your hand for application. These beads didn’t completely disintegrate after crushing, so I had to press down a few times with the scooper to break them down. If you don’t break them down enough, you’ll be spreading bits of brown jelly like stuff on your face. I guess you can break it down as you do that, though.

The actual sleeping pack cream is very thick, and the fragrance is nice. It’s not a black tea smell at all, it’s more like a light vanilla scent.

On application, the thick cream is slightly tacky, and coverage is good. Even so, absorption into the skin is an issue. There are little to no results to show for this sleeping pack except some extra sticky skin


After using Etude House Sleeping Pack Bubble Tea for a couple of weeks, I did not notice any extra moisturization or firmness. It would probably be okay as a supplement to the moisture routine of people with normal skin types, but the needs of combination skin aren’t addressed here. Maybe it needs to be used for a longer length of time to see any benefits.

Absorption into the skin is an issue. There are little to no results to show for this sleeping pack except some extra sticky skin for me. No noticeable firmness happened either.


Don’t Buy

If you’re set on buying it for the cute little pot and novelty of the packaging go ahead (it’s very cute!), but don’t expect any results for this.

This product is thick and has extra fragrances and doesn’t seem to moisturize properly, I wouldn’t think it could be good for acne prone or oily skin.
