Review: Erborian Matte Crème

26. September 2018


I’m very excited to share this review with you today: It’s about the Erborian Matte Crème! There are two reasons for my excitement: First, it’s my first review for the brand Erborian, second, I’ve been using this a lot during summer and loving it, and thirdly, I was introduced to this wonderful product during a Launching Event in Cologne in Summer, which was such a lovely and nicely organized event that I still have a lot of positive memories of it. Thank you, Erborian & YBPN for the opportunity and for providing me with this product as PR sample.

Erborian Matte Crème

“Achieve perfect skin with simple and unique products, that’s Erborian’s mission.”

Erborian is a Kbeauty brand based in France and Korea. Co-founder Katalin Berenyi discovered during a visit in South Korea that Korean Women had a very clear and good skin and she learned about Korean beauty rituals and brought them to Europe, founding the brand Erborian together with Hojung Lee, a Korean scientist with a passion for beauty. Erborian adapts Asian skincare expertise to beauty rituals around the world, creating a variety of unique and effective skincare and makeup products.

As said before, I had the honour to attend a launching event for the Erborian Matte Crème earlier this summer. The event was organized byYBPN and Erborian Germany and we were able to try out various products from Erborian, and we were introduced to the new Matte Crème. This 5-in-1 product is a mattifying face cream with a blurring effect. It evens out the complexion and mattifies the skin using White Water Lily extract from Korea. The five properties of the Erborian Matte Crème are:

  1. Blur the appearance of pores and imperfections with a soft-focus effect
  2. Even out skin tone and give an ultra-matte finish
  3. Refine skin’s texture
  4. Maintain skin’s barrier function to hold in moisture
  5. 5. mattify to prepare skin for makeup

The Matte Crème can thereby be used before makeup, or to touch up throughout the day!

It was so fun to take the pictures for the review because the Erborian Matte Crème was packed in a fun superhero-themed box. I loved the packaging so much and I took thousands of pictures, but I only selected some here :D

The colorful box revealed the original product packaging in the signature color: pale blue.

During the Launch Event, we tested this cream in a special way, which was fun and very interesting at the same time: Everyone received a touch-up of their makeup using the Erborian Matte Crème. Then we had a collective yoga session of 60 minutes. The yoga session was really exhausting, and not easy either, and to be honest, I was not prepared to get that much of exercise on this day :D By the end of the session I thought my whole makeup has melted off already! Surprisingly, a look in the mirror revealed that the Erborain Matte Crème really held up to its claims and our skin was still matte and not sweaty at all. I was pretty much amazed and happy!

The cream has a pale blue color and a balm-type texture. It feels light and hydrating upon application and has a pleasant and nice scent.

The cream pretty much dissolves to nothing and doesn’t leave a film or any type of greasiness. It is super lightweight and apart from the scent non-existent on the skin. The skin looks matte and fresh!

    Erborian is such a cool brand, I think I have a sample of this cream in my stash – I got it from Sephora during the K-beauty box event. The glow cream I tried before was really interesting. I’m surprising it’s fungal acne free since it’s hard to get fungal acne free products :)

      Yes, hardly any products I check are fungal acne free so that was a surprise too. I really like the products from Erborian I tried so far.

    Ich kannte die Marke noch überhaupt nicht! Das Packaging ist aber mega süß und ich finde auch es hört sich total gut an!

    Ich mag die Marke sehr gerne. Die Matte Creme wäre aber nichts für mich. Ich habe die mit Glow zu Hause.

    Liebe Grüße,
