Make Up Review: Etude House Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream

These pictures were taken three months ago when I just bought this product. I have been using this for three months already and it has done really well on my skin. Now I am ready to create a review for this since I'm almost out of it! :) 

PACKAGING: I find the packaging cute. It actually looks a deodorant! Haha. You know the Dove and Rexona roll on? LOL. Anyway, I don't mind though. It's different from other BB Cream packaging. The applicator is really unique. It comes off with a sponge. (Don't worry, Etude House offers sponges like this separately so you can buy another once the old one gets dirty) Plus, you can also dispense it like a normal BB Cream. You can have it both ways!

COLOR SELECTION: Korean brand make up doesn't normally carry out a wide range of color selection since Asians usually only have similar skin tones and they are naturally fair. There are three shades available, Light Beige, Natural Beige and Sand Beige. The SA suggested Natural Beige on me, but it appeared too light on me. So I tried the darker shade, which is Sand Beige. It still appears lighter but it blends out really well on my skin and it looks natural! (I'm an NC35 in MAC for reference)

TEXTURE: Like any other normal BB Cream, the texture is similar but this one is a tad bit thicker compared to the usual ones.

COVERAGE: It has medium coverage. I can't really say full coverage because I can still see my skin peeping through, but it's build-able. It also conceals light blemishes and evens out the skin tone really well.

FINISH: Matte finish! This is perfect for oily skin, like me. Hooray! :) I have tried Etude House BB Creams before and this is the only one that is matte finish. I think? The rest are dewy.

You can dispense the product two ways! Using the sponge, or just the funnel (?) I don't know what's the best word to describe it!

LASTING POWER: It lasts up to 5-6 hours on a hot day! If you are in the Philippines, the lasting power is quite long for this humid country of ours. Plus, my skin is oily. It says so in the packaging that it's long lasting.

WHAT THE PRODUCT CLAIMS: As you can see from the packaging, it says that it's Whitening, Anti-Wrinkle, Anti-Darkening, Long Lasting and Waterproof.

TRUE OR NOT? I haven't noticed any difference in my skin though. So whitening, no for me. Anti-wrinkle? I don't really mind because I don't have any yet since I'm only 17! Anti-Darkening? It has SPF50 so I suppose so. My skin color hasn't change even if the sun is striking here in Manila. Long lasting? Yep! Waterproof? Yes! But it eventually wears off after some time though, I'm sure it won't stay for 5 hours under the swimming pool. Haha.


This is how the product dispenses with the sponge. You can apply it directly onto your face using it. I prefer not to because I think that I'm wasting product when I do.

CONCLUSION: I love this product! This is my holy grail BB Cream/Foundation. It's the best I've tried so far. I'm not being biased or anything, I'm just stating my honest opinions. It's the perfect foundation for my skin type. I am actually running out on this product and I'll be buying my second one soon! :)

So, that's all I can say about this product. I hope you find my review helpful. Let me know your thoughts in the comment box below! :)
