Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream had been re-released to Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright-fit this time. I had a lap during the day and I couldn't go to sleep and I was bored.. So I've decided to write a review on Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream that I am using a lot recently. 

There is nothing better than a BB cream when you feel that it's a bit too much to be putting on a foundation and you are not confident with your bare face! What's good about a BB cream is that it's very natural and covers the blemishes on your face. However, you skin my become dark and rough if you choose wrong BB cream. 

I wanted the BB that made my skin to be bright without darkening, moist, shiny but not oily!
You know how most BB creams only have a single color and they are a bit dark. 
So I wanted to try out the no.1 BB cream on Get It Beauty, hoping that it would be better.
But that BB cream had the same darkening effects.. So I began using the foundation again.
Meanwhile, I found out 'Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream' and this the product that I am going to talk about. 


 The name of the product was 'Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream' and I thought they included the word 'pearl'  in their product description because the product's concept was 'creating a bright skin tone like pearls'. But they actually contained pearls! They've actually used the pearls of pen shells in southern sea of South Korea. (Really!) The pearls are known to have outstanding effects for brightening the skin. It is known that the pearls of pen shell have a more brilliant spectrum than ordinary pearls. It is also known that the melting powder and the special fitting-layer greatly enhance the level of adhesion.

The colors of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream

There are types of colors. (Source: Etude House website)
BB creams are normally produced in one or two colors, but this product has four different colors. The color that I am going to show you is the natural beige. 

 The box reads paraben and tar coloring substance. I personally like it very much. 
It is known to have gone through the dermatology test. 

 The manufacturing date is March 17th. It hasn't been a month since it was produced. 
I think you can buy the newly produced products when you purchase the products from Etude House's online shopping mall. The manufacturing date of those products that they sell in the offline stores would really depend on the amount of their sales... Anyway, I was never disappointed by the manufacturing date when I bought the products online. 

 The container of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream gives you a feeling of pearls. :)
The level of ultraviolet protection is SPF30 PA++ and the product should be used within 12 month from unsealing!

You'll be able to see the pumping-type pump when you open the lid. I like the pumping-type more than the tube-type products because tube-type products often make you waste the content because too much comes out at once. At first, I had to pump several times before BB cream came out. Also, the product description said that I must let the case stand when storing the product. Similar to the glossy volumer , I believe this product pumps the cream with the air pressure as well!

The textures  of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream

The cream does not run down and it maintains its form as it is. It's very soft and moist. 
It applies very well to the skin and I can feel the moisture for a long time without a feeling of suffocation. 

  I put Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream (Bright-fit) only on my right hand. 
It didn't seem to pile up even if I applied the amount that you would put on your entire face on the back of my hands and I was able to experience a delicate glossiness by its moisture! It also didn't come off on my wrinkles in between the back of my hands and my thumb because of its great level of adhesion. 

The oil paper test of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream

I tried to compared the product with Hanskin's Super Light-touch BB Cream.
The photograph above shows the conditions of the BB creams after approximately 10 minutes after applying. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream (Bright-fit) definitely has lower amount of oil. I am looking at the creams right now and the oil of Hanskin's BB cream had doubled from the amount in the photograph. 

The photograph on the left is when I applied the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream + Glossy Volumer no.2 and the photograph below is when I only applied the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream. The covering capability is greatly reduced than when I've only applied the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream. You can mix the product with the Glossy Volumer no.2, if you want more brightness. If you do not want to give up the covering funciton, you can tap the highlighter of Glossy Volumer after applying the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream. :)

TIP) There is nothing more useful than this puff when using Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream! I use the puff because it doesn't apply on the skin very evenly and it leaves hand-prints if you apply them with your hands. I've tried using these puff as samples when I bought the Glossy Volumer last time and bought them on 30% sale. The puff are made of latex and it goes along very well with the product. 
The advantages of Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream is that it has a great level of adhesion and does not have much oil! It seems to match very well for all skin types.. but I believe it will be even better for those people who have a combination of dry and oily skin types/oily skin types. If you think it's a bit dry, you can simply mix it together with Glossy Volumer no.1 or no.3. But summer is coming very soon! I am always worried about the roughness of the skin during summer.. but I really like this product because it doesn't have much oil in it. It's such a great product because it also has the function of ultraviolet protection. I highly recommend this product because it seems to have the lowest darkening effects among all the products that I've used before. However, the effects may vary on each person. So why don't you go to a store and try it out for yourself? :)
