Good morning girls~ new BB cream review is here! You know, I'm a little obsessed with BB cream~ This time I will talk about Etude House Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream~ I got this from Etude House event back on February.
About the product:Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream promotes silky complexion and brightened look with pearl mineral powder infused sheer coverage. Powerful UV protection and long lasting waterproof formula for all day outdoor protection
Like you can see, the packaging is quite unique because it has a sponge applicator attached at the bottom of the bottle. The main color of the bottle is white with sparkles decoration on the middle of the packaging. The cap is a transparent dark purple color. The bottle itself looks hard but it is squeeze-able. You can remove the sponge applicator, if you don't want to apply with it. I think the packaging's idea is quite useful. Because, we don't need to bring another sponge/brush if we go travelling. It already has it on its packaging! To use the BB Cream, just squeeze a little amount on the back of your hand, the make dots on your face and blend it with the sponge. Just remember to wash the sponge regularly to make it free from germs. I heard Etude House also sell the sponge applicator itself (without the BB Cream) in case you're to lazy to wash it.
Available Shades: Light beige N02, Natural Beige W13, Sand Beige M15
My Shade: Natural Beige W13
The texture of this BB Cream is quite thick and has a dark color compared to my skin. But, like always BB cream color always changed its color after some time. After blend it well and wait several minutes, it adjusts to my skin color well. The finish result for this BB cream is dewy~ and because it contains a high SPF, somehow I feel a little greasy and heavy on my face. The coverage is medium and buildable. It covers redness and my acne scars quite well. However for the oil control isn't really good for me. My face tends to get oily after 2,5 hours. It works better if I use primer under it. But, I think it will more suitable for people with dry skin.
Have various color selection
Offers a medium coverage and dewy finish
Contains High SPF 50/ PA +++
Unique packaging with a sponge applicator
Not so good oil control for oily skin people like me
Because it contains high SPF, the whitecast is very noticeable
Need to wash the sponge regularly
Feels a little greasy after I applied it on my face
If you have dry or normal skin and too lazy to put sunscreen before your make up, I think you need to try this BB Cream. Though, I don't really recommend this for oily skin people, but if you want to try it you can use primer before apply this BB Cream. I use my Etude House Good Bye Pore Ever Primer and so far it works good on my skin.
Lastly, thanks to Etude House for providing me with such a generous goody bag~ I will back again with another review from Etude's newest collection "Sweet Recipe", please stay tune :)
