Ettusais BB Mineral Cream
Saturday June 30, 2012
“A BB cream that gives you coverage while treating your skin at the same time.
Love it because it covers, spreads easily and is so lightweight yet it works hard to keep to your skin baby soft. Made up of 79% skincare ingredients, Ettusais’ first BB Cream hides pores, evens out skin tone and controls oil. It also contains 6 different kinds of moisturizing ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, while also preventing acne with our star ingredient, AC-Control Oil. Contains SPF 30 PA ++.”
I ordered it in #10 Light. It’s also available in 2 darker shades.
An extremely popular BB cream ranked 3rd best overall BB cream on cosme.net for 2011.
I wanted to give it a good try before sharing my thoughts because of my extremely acne-prone skin. Most foundations/BB creams break me out. Before this I was religiously using MISSHA brand for years trying new things in between & always gong back.
I love this Ettusais BB cream!
Mostly because it does not break me out whatsoever.
That’s my most crucial test.
Also the color match is flawless! As I apply it the cream sort of melts seamlessly blending into my own shade.
The coverage is light, but not translucent. It’ll cover dark spots like acne scares pretty evenly without extra concealer. But for dark under eye circles I still apply a concealer on top of the BB Cream.
The finish is smooth and lightweight. It also does a decent job at filling in larger pores without clogging them. I usually finish with a setting powder but sometimes I don’t. It doesn’t necessarily need it. Oh yeah and the SPF 30 is great for summer sun!
My only complaint is that it gets a bit oily throughout the day. So by 2:00 I have to use an blotting paper around my nose, chin, and forehead. I have combination skin so I get the dreaded oily T-zone. It’s also summer so I think the Ettusais BB cream will be wonderful for the dry winter months because it has that sort of dewy finish.
I happened to pick up a different Ettusais product while in Japan. Their gel top coat. I couldn’t go anywhere without seeing it.
Though I was enjoying Majolica Majorca’s Glass Drop, I think Ettusais is ever so slightly longer lasting. It doesn’t scuff up as much either. It’s the only top coat I use now. I should really just toss all of my old non-gel-look top coats so I never use them any more.
And since I mentioned still using a concealer with the Ettusais BB cream, here’s the concealer I’m currently using for dark under eye circles.
I really like using this for a few reasons. My skin is a bit dry around my eyes even with using eye cream, so a creamy finish concealer works best for me. Also the light pink color blends nicely over the BB cream already placed around my eyes, brightening them up a bit. So I use it more as a final step for base eye makeup. I will say though, this concealer breaks me out when used elsewhere such as around my nose which was a bit disappointing because it’s a nice light concealer. But like I always say, my skin is extremely acne-prone.
