When Ivy at Q-Depot asked me if I would like to review one of the J:Dew Green Moist skincare items, I did my homework first, as I only accept products that are of interest to me. J:Dew is a brand using Jeju Island ingredients and it looked fantastic ~ aloe vera, green tea. I naturally accepted and asked if I could try two products ~ as I was only offered one out of the four products in the Green Moist series. I wanted to try the toner and emulsion ~ Ivy worked with J:Dew and it was agreed that I could have both. Well, imagine my surprise the other day when the postman handed me this HUGE box, from J’ERS company ~ J’ERS is the parent company of J:Dew. I opened it up and not only did I get the full line of J:Dew Green Moist series, but two other complete sets of their Green Delight Body care series and Green Clarity Cleansing series! This will take me some time to try out so I wanted to share with you this brand and introduce you to their line.
Q-Depot, for those who may not know, is an online Korean cosmetic store that has over 15,000 Korean skincare and Korean makeup products with over 25 famous brands, such as Banila, Etude House, Hera, Skinfood, The Face Shop, History of Woo, Tonymoly, Innisfree, Missha, IOPE and many more. Q-Depot has free international shipping with any orders $49.00 or more and you will get free samples with every order as well. If you register with Q-Depot, you will receive $25.00 USD coupons to use at their store ~ and if you are socially conscious, another reason to shop with them is that 3% of their net profit will be donated to social causes, as social responsibility is one of their core values. They also are the only shop that I am aware of that has a section dedicated to products that are cruelty free, which is fantastic.
J:Dew’s parent company, J’ERS, was created as a premium brand to represent Jeju and means “People who love Jeju Island“. J’ERS symbolizes Jeju’s six resources: nature, tourism, traditional culture, dreams, globalization and people and they produce premium products that will remind people of what is best loved about Jeju Island. All the products from J:Dew line are free from parabens, mineral oil, animal sourced ingredients, artificial fragrance, artificial coloring and benzophenone.
J:Dew Green Moist Skin Care ~ Hydrating Program
The Green Moist Skin Care set came in this great box ~ the lid has been printed to look like wood and it opens up to reveal 4 full sized products and two deluxe samples. Notice the absence of the ingredient “fragrance” in this skin care line. J:Dew has included all ingredients ~ all scents are part of that list and are natural.
These are beautiful to look at ~ the lovely light forest green bottles and jars with bronze-rose colored accents and lids, with a great logo of Jeju Island. In this set are the following products
Green Moist Toner This will be one of the first items I try and I have already used it. I have to say, my initial reaction is WOW. This toner has a slightly thicker than water texture, but it absorbs quickly into my skin. AND OMG, the scent!! It is a lavender and Bergamot scent~ not too heavy, but it is amazing ~ all of the Green Moist items have this scent and I feel like I should be in a spa. I received both a full size (175 mL) and deluxe size (25mL) of this toner.

Whew! What a lot of products!! I am so grateful to both J:Dew and Q-Depot for their amazing generosity and I will review these products here over the next few months. I just wanted to post this unboxing so that you could be introduced to J:Dew, if you were not aware of this Jeju Island centric brand. All of these J:Dew items are available for sale at Q-Depot (click here) except the Clarity line, which I hope they will carry.
Have you tried J:Dew products before? What did you think of them? I am pretty excited to try these out, as this combines several elements that I love in skincare: ingredients sourced from Jeju Island, green tea, aloe and the lovely spa scent of lavender and bergamot.
