Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream All Day Strong SPF30/PA++ in #1 Sheer Silky Skin

I just seem to love everything I own so far from Etude House but this is the first time for trying any of their BB Creams. Precious Mineral BB Creams come in a nicely packaged tube with pump, which contains 60g of product. They come in 3 finishes but from the catalogue swatches #1 seems to be the lightest so I have to be safe than sorry. Apparently #1 is best for oil control which actually I'm not complaining about. My face doesn't really get seriously oily but it can now and again. I find this BB cream will never 'give' you grease, yet alone it being oil-free. Since it is more for oil control it won't be as moisturising as others. However I've been using 'this' day cream under all my makeup as of lately and it's no problem. 

The texture is quite thick but very easy to blend into the skin and medium coverage like with most BB Creams. 

I find that this one runs slightly too dark for me but once applied It didn't seem noticeable and blended into my skin, also the undertones helped as it has a neutral sort of yellow undertone which is me. There is scent but it's a very pleasant light fruity floral type. I always set any BB cream with a light dusting of StarGazer pressed white powder and this lasted all day till I took my makeup off. 

As this is a Korean brand you won't find it in the UK. I got mine from Ebay for around £10.00

Precious Mineral BB Creams contain properties like pearl extract and the usual likes of anti-wrinkle, SPF and whitening.

  1. Do you ever use a primer under BB creams or do you use them directly on your skin?? I have one from Holika Holika and I've heard of the nice, skin-loving properties of BB creams but I can't seem to *not* use a primer, for fear of clogging the pores, etc.

    1. I usually just apply them straight to my skin sometimes I'll use a day cream/moisturiser but that's it. I've never been a one for primers and I've never found a BB to clog my pores. x
