I`m a huge fan of BB and CC creams especially at summer, when the temperature outside is too hot to handle. A heavy coat of a full coverage foundation closes the pores of the skin and prevents a natural thermoregulation and oil production. This may cause excessive skin oil production and lead to blemishes and acne. Unlike a regular full coverage foundations BB and CC creams have a special caring formula - a soft blend between a skincare ingredients and a light pigment. Today I`m going to talk about the Precious Mineral BB Cream Cover & Bright Fit* by a world famous Korean beauty brand Etude House.
Precious Mineral BB Cream has a smooth creamy texture and provides a medium coverage, a little of a product goes a long way. The formula of the BB cream is buildable, so if you need extra coverage you can always boost up the coverage on a problematic areas of the skin. Etude House BB cream perfectly covers up large skin pores, small acne scars and redness without clogging the pores. Unfortunately I need to admit that after the application of this BB cream and setting it with a transluscent powder my skin started to look a little bit cakey. I have a dry to combined skin type, so this product accentuated dry skin patches on my face. I`m sure that people with oily skin type will appreciate this product, it is very lightweight and the main ingredient of this BB Cream is water.
As the summer approaches we need to take a special care of our gentle facial skin and provide it with a UVA protection. PA++ is a special Korean and Japanese UVA rating system, it shows how much protection from a harmful sun rays you will get using this makeup or beauty product. The more pluses you`ll see on the label, the higher is a level of UVA protection. Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream is labeled SPF 30 PA++ - it is a medium level of the protection, but it is much more than I usually see on a BB and CC creams.
In a nutshell, I liked this product, though I would suggest you to exfoliate the skin before applying this product. I think that Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream is perfect for summer time and I highly recommend this product to everyone who is searching for BB cream with a good level of UVA protection and great coverage. I also think that it will work better for those who has a combined and oily skin type, because this BB cream has a special anti - sebum formula that helps to control skin oil. I got this beauty gem in the YesStyle Korean Beauty Box, don`t forget to check out my review and find out what makeup treats are waiting for you in this beauty box.
Lots of love,
