Review | Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit W15

Sunday, 23 February 2014

Hello, lovely people! How's your weekend so far? I'm working on my second minor project right now and finally done with most of the part. :D

With this little time to spare, I decided to finally do a review on this product, that I've been using almost everyday for the last 3 months which is this Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit SPF30 PA++ in W15 (Sand Beige) from Etude House.



I bet this product has been reviewed for many times now but I've read few reviews on this shade so I guess why not share my experience as well, right?

First of all, let's get on the Product Description:

Precious Mineral BB Cream promotes silky complexion with pearl infused sheer coverage. 
Contain sadenosine & arbutin for anti-wrinkle & whitening efficacies. 
SPF30 and PA++ for UV protection.


All Day Clear and healthy skin

5a - AVOCUTA ingredients: Ingredients that promote the inhibition of excessive sebum secretion, hence protecting and preventing the skin from darkening. 


Natural powder to prevent preconditioning: Powder-coated components that can prevent the colour from oxidizing. 



Pearl extract containing 16.5% (9.603mg): Came from fresh and clean pearls that live on the south coast. Its superior whitening and moisturizing effect that helps with the brightening up skin tone.



Seaweed extract complex, for moisture and healthy looking skin.



Net Weight: 60g

How to use: Oh, well. As if you guys didn't know how to use BB Cream.. 
Apply the product to all areas of the face.
Pat to finish.

Packaging:

Basically, the product came with this beautiful pearly pink box. There's the logo of this line on it, with basic description of the product. I don't like pink that much but as for this one, I approve. 


On the side of the box, there's this note being highlighted there, it's in Hangul though, let me translate that for you. 
  • Paraben free.
  • Tar colour free.
  • Dermatology Tested.
  • Contains 16.5% Pearl Extract.

There's also some product description below that, which I already state above. 


As you can see, the product is housed within this pearly pink tube as well. With purple to contrast as for the labelling, definitely nice. 


If you can read Hangul, there's quick description on the back. It's important if you're living with other girls who have same product only different in shades. You don't wanna put on the wrong shade only to realize that when you arrive in class. *ahem~*


The pump works greatly. One pump is enough to cover my whole face and some neck area. Half pump if I want less coverage. 

  

So that's the swatch on my hand. I love the finishes I gotta say. I usually use blender. Though it absorbs so much product but I'm comfortable with it. hehe

Verdict:


that's my bare face on the left and on the right, that's with medium coverage. I like how it's 'my skin but better' look. Below photo is when I put on some loose powder. 



Personally, I love this BB cream. This is the first full-size BB cream I ever had so yeah. This is the product that I'm gonna use as comparison to other products after this. 


As I have oil-combo skin, the lasting power especially on my T-zone I should say rather average. Well, as I usually in the design studio the whole day for about 8 to 9 hours a day, I notice this after 6 hours. But on my cheeks, the lasting power is okay I guess. So this product might not for oily skin I bet. maybe for a good 4-5 hours, with blotting but not more. 



Actually, when I first bought this, the shade matched my skin tone almost perfectly and I like it but sometime around December last year, as I used up all my brightening and whitening products, I noticed that after I deep cleansed my skin, my skin appears to be brighter than before taking off my makeup i.e. this BB cream and powder pact. o.O



As this BB cream came with skincare properties which are whitening, anti-wrinkle and anti-darkening, I sure hope that actually works as that's the reason I'm getting BB cream instead of foundation. 


Final verdict: 4/5. Minus point for the lasting power for me. 

I got this product in November last year with a retailed price of RM89.90. But as the November Promo was having Buy 1 Free 1, I got my cousin a perfume, the one designed by Taemin SHINee I think, as it's in the same price.

Anyway, that's all from me.

Do share if you guys have tried this product (I bet you guys did!) and tell me what you think about this product's performance on your skin.

Until next post, au revoir!
