Gaondodam Pure All In One Moisturizer Review:
I got this product last year and it has a surprising amount of product (for a facial cream) and so it took me forever to finish. However, I am writing this review after finishing the whole pot, so you know right away that I liked it “at least enough”. But this brand isn’t that well known nor that appreciated, so even if it’s for general knowledge I think it deserves a review!

Gaondodam Pure All In One Moisturizer Review:
Although not all Amore Pacific brands are like this, this one and Innisfree at least make environmentally friendly packages. The paper is recycled and printed with soy ink, and the whole package (including the actual product’s package) is recyclable.
The cream shortly after I first opened it and around midway. I mean, for 100ml for a face cream it did go by faster than I thought it would! And in Korea it only costs around 32$ (and there’s always a discount) which is super cheap for this huge size.
It is a completely scent free moisturizer. Not even “natural ingredient smell”, just no smell at all.
I have now finished the whole cream (yes, all 100ml) and I used it on my face in any condition (thin layers when oily, thicker when dry), on my neck (it is moisturizing enough for the neck so I didn’t need a separate neck cream) and on my eyes (because it’s free or harmful ingredients and has no added scent). It is a multi-performance cream.
I would say any non-oily skin can use this, because it is still a moisturizer even though it can be controlled easily.
The texture too is very simple. Just like the La Roche Posay moisturizer, all of it is just simple. But simple can be good, especially because I like my active (or strong) products to be between my toner and moisturizer! I love me some fancy creams, don’t get me wrong, but it depends on what I apply before it.
It absorbs… eventually, depending on the thickness of the layer. Nothing too fast or slow.
Because it’s such a safe cream I just closed my eyes and applied it from forehead to neck without discrimination and my skin enjoyed it while it was there!
Saved me a lot of time by being a face, neck, and eye cream, and it was effective in all of those.
Even when my skin was sensitive (no, especially when my skin was sensitive) it helped it heal and protect. I have used it for one month on Winter, Spring, and Summer (hey, it’s a huge cream) and the only note is that I used a thinner layer in the summer.
I enjoy it especially at night because it’s moisturizing and has no scent so then I can fall asleep enjoying the scent of my sleeping masks.
I have recommended a lot of sensitive skin products here, namely the Etude House Soon Jung Toner, Sleeping Mask, Cica Balm, and Barrier Intensive Cream, Scinic The Simple Toner, Innisfree Bija Cica Balm, Ato Soothing Gel, and a few mask sheets like the Etude House and the A’pieu Madecassoside masks. If you want completely safe and neutral products for sensitive skin, just like the ones I mentioned above, I suggest you add this to the list.
Reading all these names that I love, all together, actually makes me want to make a sensitive skin-care set!
This is, in short, a very simple moisturizer that works for several purposes. I loved using all of it and would love having it again.
