Etude House Precious Minerals All Day Strong BB Cream: No.3 + Total Age Repair Activating Emulsion

Etude House Precious Minerals All Day Strong BB Cream: No. 3

SPF 30 PA++

I was looking for a fluid BB cream since recently I feel like my skin's changed again and gotten dryer. I finally am  at the bottom of my Etude House BB Magic Balm! So I picked this BB cream up since I like Etude House and figured it wouldn't disappoint. 

This BB cream is a bit thicker than the BB balm actually. Thicker means more coverage. You can see the results from my pictures. I was breaking out terribly at that point in time, so I figured it was perfect to do a BB swatch for. Please don't laugh at my predicament T_T. 

The only issue is that the swatch color isn't spot on for my skin =/. I thought so many asians are usually lighter than me so I should be the darker shade, unfortunately it's a tidge too dark. You may think it's strange because it looks too light for me in the swatch above, but that's with flash immediately after applied. The BB Magic Balm is slightly too light, but this is a bit too dark. I've done a comparison swatch of the two. My face is lighter than my hand so the Magic BB balm shade works better. 

If you think this is for you, then feel free to take it off me- I don't tan really either. EMAIL ME at  $13 shipped 

Etude House Total Age Repair Activating Emulsion

I used this every day before makeup for about 1-2 months now. Honestly I can't see any difference in the age of my skin. But I love how it's in a heavy durable bottle. It dented my floor, lol. But the only thing is that it's a bit hard to get the product out of the bottle. It is still a decent moisturizer though. Not too heavy.


  1. I actually use this BB cream in the same shade and I looove it so much!

  2. It is a good BB cream! Just makes me look darker a bit irl =/. It's even the first time my face has been a couple shades darker than my neck. Especially now that we're moving into winter I really don't see opportunity to use it (end up getting lighter).
